Tales of Old Lincolnshire
Lincolnshire has a great wealth of stories from the past and a fascinating folklore. These are tales from this rich treasury. Some are ancient legends involving monstrous dragons, witches, giants and boggarts. Others bring to life moments of drama and mystery, of romance and courage. Traditional customs have their place too as have the famous and infamous characters from days gone by.
What is the ceremony of the Gad Whip at Caistor? Who were mischievous Tiddy People? Why was the famous Imp turned to stone in Lincoln Cathedral? What happened when the terrible flood swept through Louth in 1920? What colourful scenes occurred when bulls were allowed to stampede through the streets of Stamford?
Adrian Gray, with a life-long interest in local history, has rediscovered many forgotten county tales. He retells them here with a blend of humour and enthusiasm which no Lincolnshire reader can fail to enjoy.
