Ghost Taverns is a fascinating, in-depth look at some of the north of England's most haunted public houses and the spectres that are said to reside in them. After reading Ghost Taverns, popping in to your local may never be the same again ...
Written by two of the UK's most respected paranormal researchers, Ghost Taverns takes the reader on a supernatural pub-crawl that starts off at the Albion Inn in Pelaw and ends at Ye Olde Crosse at Alnwick. In between, the authors visit dozens of inns, taverns and watering holes across the region to uncover the truth about their haunted reputations. Characters such as the legendary Giggly Meg who glides the corridors of the Alum Ale House at South Shields, the Sad Cavalier who has been seen at the Black Horse in West Boldon and the two children seen running from a spectral lady in the Tynemouth Lodge Hotel are brought to life - metaphorically, of course - in the hope that they will enchant a whole new generation of readers who may be unaware of them.
