Description

Lincolnshire is an ancient county, it's perception as a quiet rural location belied by the fact that the area has seen centuries of tumultuous history. Settlements and ruins from bygone eras scatter the landscape, and these locations - often isolated and surrounded by lonely lanes and the open countryside Lincolnshire is famous for - hide many legends and mysterious secrets from bygone times right up until the present day. Dragons lie buried in hillsides...fairy folk once shared our environment with us, and maybe phantom hounds and the black panthers of the Wolds still do. Perhaps the ingrained fear of Satan and witchcraft lingers still in remoter communities. Stories of miracles and portents are attached to the churches, and in particular to the magnificent, Medieval Lincoln Cathedral. These days ancient mysteries compete with modern enigmas. In the towns and villages there is scarcely a stately home, public house or hotel that does not harbor an attendant ghost, and in many residential houses poltergeists have made their sinister presences felt. Off the east coast, a giant sea serpent has been on-and-off reported. In the skies, phantom planes have been seen and strange otherworldly lights are regularly witnessed: are UFOs taking an interest in Lincolnshire's RAF bases? This book is designed to illustrate that the counties of Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and North Lincolnshire are truly a land of mystery where strange, ancient stories are still told - and where even today in the 21st century the most curious, supernatural and frightening of events are still reported.
