Ghosts and Legends of Lincolnshire and the Fen Country

Polly Howat Countryside Books

Lincolnshire and the fen country of Cambridgeshire and its borders with West Norfolk and North Suffolk is an area steeped in ancient legends and traditions, born of a rich and colourful history.  Echoes from the past frequently resurface in strange phenomena and unexplained hauntings.  The area boasts witches, magicians, and visits from the devil, as well as a ghostly hound, a dragon and a phantom horse.


Was there a ghost at Skegness Railway Station? What is the story behind the loss of King Johnís treasure? Where does the ghost of Oliver Cromwell walk on dark nights? How did bees cause the death of a knight in chain mail near Ely and what was the curse of Croyland Abbey.


Polly Howat lives near Wisbech and has brought together a collection of the very best of the regionís legacy of strange events and the supernatural.  In addition she provides a glossary of dialect works which recall a time and a way of life so nearly lost to todayís generations.  She is a popular local radio broadcaster and professional performance storyteller.
