Ghost Walks in Leicestershire
This is a collection of 30 circular walks set in the delightful county of Leicestershire. In it you may encounter headless cyclists, a profusion of nuns and a skeletal monk, and one you won't want to meet, Black Shug, a fearsome beast the size of a wolf
The walks range from 1-10 miles in length. Each walk has at least one ghost story attached to a part of it; some walks having several chilling tales, which, hopefully, will bring a shiver to even the warmest clad rambler.
You should be warned that some of the ghosts are 'hands on', so you may be pushed or shoved in the back. One ghost has a predilection for women so you may have your face stroked or your bottom patted.
You will visit some of the less frequented parts of Leicestershire, experiencing the superb variety of the scenery from the delights of river valleys to panoramic viewpoints.
The walks include visits to famous halls and houses and some fascinating churches, including one of Leicestershire's hidden gems, the tiny, exquisite Withcote Chapel.
