A-Z of Curious County Durham: Strange Stories of Mysteries, Crimes and Eccentrics

Length: 273 pages3 hours


This book draws on the long and unique heritage of the County Palatine of Durham, a historical land of saints and warlords. Inspired in part by the chronicles and compendiums of County Durham's eighteenth- and nineteenth-century historians and antiquarians, this book is a miscellany—at times tragic, at times comic, but always entertaining. It tells, in a single volume, tales of monsters, murders, and mysterious deaths; of highwaymen and hauntings; of ancient tales from County Durham's fairy realm; and of modern-day mysteries, such as UFOs and legendary beasts that still stalk the Palatine lands. It is an ideal book for dipping into and learning something new and wonderful about County Durham.
