Synopsis

Nestled amidst the windswept moorlands of the South Pennines, Halifax has always had a wild reputation: `From Hell, Hull and Halifax, good Lord deliver us' ran the `Beggars' Litany'. But was it just a grisly fate at the hands of the Halifax Gibbet, England's last guillotine, that they feared?



From historical boggarts to modern poltergeists, the region teems with intruders from beyond the veil: they stalk the gritstone crags and the austere chapels, the tumbledown mills and the ancient taverns. Haunted Halifax & District explores the manifestations and territory of these unquiet spirits, all in the light of the area's colourful history and wider folkloric context.



Including such highlights as the spectre of Emily Bronte and a headless coachman with two two headless horses, it will intrigue visitors and residents alike.
