Lancashire Folk: Ghostly Legends and Folklore from Ancient to Modern

by Melanie Warren - £17.50  Schiffer Publishing Ltd (2016)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780764349836 | ISBN 10: 076434983x

Journey through Lancashire, England, to visit 155 places where strange history meets creepy modern times.
 
Arranged alphabetically by town and place, the stories tell of ghosts, witches, fairies, dragons, and altercations with the Devil (who is not as clever as he thinks!). Legends connected to ancient monuments, holy wells, and the locations of Green Man carvings are also included. Sometimes these tales echo history and sometimes they come from a deeper folklore. Sometimes ghost stories are discredited... sometimes they are not.
 
A useful guidebook for tourists and travelers, this book is also an invaluable compendium for serious researchers. Stories are indexed by type and a separate index lists postcodes and Ordnance Survey map references for those who wish to visit the locations for themselves.
