St Albans is a city steeped in history, a place of former martyrs, Roman legions, battles, bloodshed ... and ghosts. Here the paranormal history of this remarkable area is brought vividly to life in the first dedicated guide to its unique haunted heritage that presents true encounters with the world of the strange and the unseen. Paranormal historian Paul Adams opens case files both ancient and modern to compile a chilling collection of supernatural experiences – the much haunted St Albans Cathedral where phantom monks have been seen in daylight and the fighting ghosts of Battlefield House and the legless apparition of a long-dead butler are just some of the unnerving experiences that await the reader.
This book, written by an internationally renowned researcher in the field, provides a thorough and systematic review of empirical investigations into the bases of belief in paranormal phenomena. Opening with a foreword by the highly respected researchers into paranormal belief Dr Caroline Watt and Professor Richard Wiseman, this book will be of particular interest to professional researchers and serious students of the subject, as well as to clinical psychologists and counsellors.
Tales and testimonials of the ghostly across Hertfordshire: This eclectic mix of the sightings, appearances and events of the paranormal both new and old will thrill believers and sceptics alike.Who was the Pop star that shared her Sawbridgeworth home with a ghost called Richard? When does the ghostly Cavalier of Hitchin Priory make his appearance? What is Watford's link with a world famous Paranormal phenomenon?Damien O'Dell reveals all you could want to know about the supernatural in all four corners Hertfordshire.
Damien O'Dell's first book about the paranormal brings together his various interests – his Bedfordshire roots, his fascination with the paranormal and his love of history. He travelled many hundreds of miles, from Odell to Arlesey, from Barton-le-Clay to Bolnhurst, and interviewed scores of witnesses in his search for the truth. His book is filled with a rich panoply of characters, both famous and infamous, from Sir Fulke de Breaute to Lord Thomason of Cardington. Well over a hundred people feature in Paranormal Bedfordshire, but the most interesting stories come from 'ordinary' people, from a variety of backgrounds. Their sincerity, often corroborated where possible by other witnesses, convinced the author that what we refer to as 'ghosts' are very real experiences. This was reinforced in the village of Wilden, when he came into spine-tingling personal contact with poltergeists. What follows has been written with professional thoroughness, it may seem incredible, even unbelievable, but it is absolutely true . . . welcome to Paranormal Bedfordshire.

And in sections devoted to different paranormal topics, The Clairvoyant and The Parapsychologist provide their opinions, formed from years of experience, and then interrogate each other. Just listen to what each has to say, and then make up your own mind. The Truth is Out There, finding it is the difficult part.
