Surrey is a county of contrasting styles with a diverse mixture of rural villages, vast open land, commuter towns such as Guildford and Woking and to the north, the modern sprawl of suburbia, which forms part of Greater London. Surrey's rich tapestry of history and heritage is also complimented by its fascinating stories of ghosts and the paranormal. This book will take you on a journey through Surrey's paranormal landscape and as well as taking you to some of the more prominent locations, the guide will also visit places that are off the beaten track. These stories and tales are a varied mix of local folklore, eyewitness reports and personal accounts investigated by paranormal researcher and filmmaker Marq English. Who is the young girl seen many times in the early hours on the A22 approach to Caterham? What dark figures haunt the Great Hall of Carew Manor? Does a phantom horse and rider from many years ago still gallop along the Pilgrim's Way? Whose screams are heard from inside Lumley Chapel in the dead of night and who drives a phantom car along the disused track at Brooklands? Find out if these stories are fact or folklore as we explore paranormal Surrey from Carew Manor to Clandon Park, Ham House to Hampton Court and Waverley Abbey to Whitehall. This book will be your guide to the haunted places of the county, which will both intrigue and fascinate students of the unexplained.
