A renowned psychic investigator reveals his most chilling cases in the haunted villages of Essex.
Headless coffin bearers. Evil rectories. Otherworldly church choirs. Mortuary stirrings. They're all part of Wesley Downes's job. After his own experience with the uncanny, Downes was invited to join The Ghost Club, Britain's most esteemed society of paranormal research. For nearly a century its members included such luminaries as Charles Dickens, W.B. Yeats, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Algernon Blackwood, Arthur Machen, Dennis Wheatley, and horror-film legend Peter Cushing.
Throughout the next sixty years Downes joined the ranks to venture into the spirit world pursuing legends, myths, and unexplainable phenomena. Now, one of England's leading hunter of ghosts shares his strangest cases: the floating monk of Holy Cross Church; the Poltergeists of Harlow; the Mystery of Gun Hill House in Dedham; the dreaded Butcher Shop in Clacton-on-Sea; the Sandeman apparitions of Mistley; the Happening at Seven Rivers; the Phantom Eyes on Clinghoe Hill; and more true inquiries into the unnatural.Memories of an Essex Ghosthunter
