Daily Express

Rooted in place, slipping between worlds – a rich collection of unnerving ghosts and sinister histories.

Eight authors were given the freedom of their chosen English Heritage site, from medieval castles to a Cold War nuclear bunker. Immersed in the past and chilled by rumours of hauntings, they channelled their darker imaginings into a series of extraordinary new ghost stories.

‘Subtly evocative of human relations – loss, grief, or the fear of loneliness’



‘A satisfying and spooky read’


Also includes a gazetteer of English Heritage properties which are said to be haunted.


The ebook is also available to buy from your favourite e-retailers.

Also available in hardback.
