This is a comprehensive look at strange phenomena, supernatural encounters and folklore in Yorkshire. It presents amazing and mystical tales that will delight and horrify the reader in equal measures.
Yorkshire is simply stunning. So are its mysteries. Yorkshire has developed a character all its own. That applies as much to its mysterious aspect, as it does to its human or natural faces.
The Barguest roams the woods, fields and even the cities of Yorkshire on its eternal, supernatural patrols. The Church Fenton Tiger hit the national headlines in the 2006 and led police a merry dance around the River Ouse.
And Yorkshire had more dragons of more fearsome habits than any other county in England. The identity of Old King Cole is uncertain, but he was probably a Yorkshireman. King Arthur rode this way after the Romans left.
There is an intangible quality about Yorkshire that is uniquely mysterious. It cannot be touched and it cannot be pinned down. The magical and the supernatural are never far away.
