Spooky graveyards, ghosts, evil faeries, goblins, the Devil, headless horsemen, witches & black dogs - Gloucestershire has them all!

In fact our county is home to so many spooky goings on that it really should be renamed ‘Ghostlyshire’!  This talk will look at some of the supernatural tales & legends of the county, which can be found in the newspapers, magazines, books and other records that are held at Gloucestershire Archives.  So sit back, turn on the lights and prepare to be scared!
