Riassunto: This was the first book on London's ghosts, when Peter Underwood was President of the Ghost Club. He is uniquely qualified to write Haunted London, presenting a parade and gazetteer of the psychic phenomena of Britain's capital city - a city with nearly ten million living inhabitants and the ghosts of many dead ones. As well as all the famous hauntings - the Cock Lane ghost, the Grey Man at Drury Lane, the Tower ghosts, the haunted house at Berkeley Square etc. - the book contains many new and hitherto unpublished findings. Not all ghosts date back to earlier centuries: there are ghost motorcyclists, for instance, and new buildings on the sites of older ones are as likely to have ghosts as those which still stand. For easy reference, Haunted London has divided up London geographically. Ghostly associations are uncovered in churches, theatres, hotels, inns and scenes of murders. Poltergeist infestation is another phenomenon included in this work which is sure to fascinate anyone wanting to get to know London better - whether they be visitors, psychic researchers, students of history, of legend or folklore, or simply lovers of one of the world's finest cities.
From the Back Cover:
'SOMETHING SHAPELESS AND HORRIBLE'(50 Berkeley Square, Mayfair)
'GOOD GOD!'(Martin Tower, Tower of London)
'IT"S THE BLACK NUN!'(The Bank of England)
'HE WAS NOT TRANSPARENT, BUT APPEARED SEMI-SOLID.'(Red Lion Square, Holborn)
In these pages Peter Underwood, President of the Ghost Club, tracks down these and the many other ghostly phenomena that make London the most haunted place on earth: from Hammersmith to Bermondsey, from Hampstead to Chiswick, from the West End to the City.
Whether you have experienced the sudden chill of fear, or simple lives in hope (or dread) of doing so, Haunted London offers the first gazetteer of the capital's other population.
