Weird Map

My 'Weird Map' below shows the locations of those strange London tales I have written about. I am slowly expanding this map to include markers for stories recorded by other authors. If you are an author who has published a book of weird London stories that you would like to see included then please see here for details.

Clicking on a marker will bring up a short description of the story and tell you where you can find out more.

Haunted Enfield by Jason Hollis (The History Press, 2013)

Only a handful of the haunted places within the London Borough of Enfield have ever been featured in books on the subject of ghosts, but there are many others. Haunted Enfield brings together, for the first time, all of the stories, legends and documented evidence of the supernatural from around the Borough into one volume. From famous cases such as the Enfield Poltergeist and the Bell Lane 'flyer' to places that have never been featured before, Haunted Enfield provides an alternate, hidden history of some of the Borough's key locations that will appeal to both the local history buff and anyone interested in the supernatural.
