Supernatural Peak District – David Clarke
As part of one of my research projects, I came across Supernatural Peak District. A rather weighty book (192 pages), it’s absolutely packed with information. I’ve read several books on the same topic now, and yet this one still managed to teach me something I didn’t know. It did repeat some legends I’d heard before, but with a great deal more information and with lots of first hand witness accounts. It was enough to make me want to hide under the duvet come lights out time!
Joking apart, though, this is an incredibly well-researched book which is very easy to read and digest and has some beautiful accompanying photographs. It’s a very informative book for anyone researching local history, or just those interested in the supernatural. Be warned though, it’ll probably put you off camping in the Peak District!
