"Haunted Swindon" successfully documents alleged paranormal activity within the borough of Swindon. The book is a blend of local history, haunting tales, real life ghost experiences and current paranormal research.
The aim of the text is to piece together Swindon's haunted heritage. As well as containing many individual case studies, this book also includes ten reports from research investigations which the group has conducted.
Readers will be treated to in depth accounts of fleeting apparitions at the Jolly Tar pub in Hannington, the mischievous goings-on at Sally's Cafe in Highworth and a plethora of unexplained noises at Swindon's Wyvern Theatre.
The book also gives a glimpse of dozens of haunting reports ranging from private houses, cinemas and pubs to Lydiard House, the steam museum and the arts centre.
"Haunted Swindon" is a ghost book with a twist - it is written by real-life paranormal investigators and contains up-to-the minute psychological research and educated critical analysis.
