Ghosts! Ghosts! Ghosts! More supernatural tales and eerie encounters from the Haunted Isle. These intriguing stories include Phantom Soldiers at Needles Battery, Ghost girl in the well at Carisbrooke Castle, Appuldurcombe's haunted carriage, the sexy spirit at Ryde's Prince Consort, the Dead take a bow at Shanklin Theatre, and What lurks at Gallows Hill?
Meet the Guilty Guildhall Ghost, the ghost-cat of Essex Cottage, learn of Lady Tennyson's gentle spirit, Ghost-trains in the night, and the Dead of Whitecroft. Finally, no book on Isle of Wight ghosts would be complete without more tales of the lost manor of Knighton Gorges, that most haunted of places.
Why are cars drained of power there? See evidence of strange poltergeist lights captured on film. Are the accounts true? Sceptics may scoff, but scores of witnesses are convinced they are genuine. Why not judge for yourself?

Review:

Gay Baldwin is well-known as the most informed expert on the ghostly history of this very welcoming Island. -- The Journal of The Ghost Club Society.

More Ghosts of the Isle of Wight contains a remarkably rich pattern of ghost stories for old and young alike. -- Journal of the Australian Folklore Association

From the Author:

What are ghosts? Why are we endlessly fascinated with tales of hauntings and the supernatural? And why does the Isle of Wight appear to have so many?
People often ask me, "How on earth can you find enough stories to fill a fourth book? Surely you must have run out of ghosts by now!"
Certainly not ! After working for more than two years researching Isle of Wight Ghosts, Book Four, I have ended up with many other stories which will not see the light of day in this book, simply because there is no room for them. Now this book is completed I have at least another 100 reports of hauntings to investigate and research.
Almost everyone who has had a supernatural experience - or knows someone who has - is prepared to accept the possibility of ghosts. Why are ghost stories so fascinating? Is it because they appeal to our longing to believe in life after death?
I hope you enjoy this latest offering of Isle of Wight ghosts. I make no attempt to interpret or explain away these hauntings and I do not try to make believers out of anyone. All I ask is that you approach the subject with an open mind.
And if you ever meet a ghost, don't be afraid. Try to remember as much detail as possible about the encounter .... then tell me!
