That guide to ghosts kids book in the 70s..

It’s being republished!
I am one of those kids who was utterly scared shitless by this book, so definitely getting the reprinted version then The one-eyed dog thing gave me the chills and still does to think about it. And this is the one that showed that ghost monk by the altar. Anyone else remember this book?

Does it mention the white dog of death. It had red eyes and its paws were inverted. That used to freak me out

Yes, I had the bigger three part volume called ‘Mysteries of the Unknown’, that not only contained the Ghosts book but also UFO’s and Monsters. Was a constant companion at one point and recall taking it to school and looking at it with mates in the playground and scaring the sh*t out of each other. Loved it.

Used to love these! We had a copy of each at primary school and I was always signing them out.

Pluckley wasn’t far away and I used to be fascinated whenever we drove past/through.

Also always remember my old Cub Scout leader telling the story of The Ghost of Blue Bell Hill every single camp. Was always on the lookout for a hitchhiking girl when we headed to Rochester or Chatham.

Will definitely be picking up a copy.

I loved the ghost one. A real blast from the past I might just get it for myself.

Count me in, Usborne children's book are still superb. Though they tend to stick to the factual these days. There's certainly something about Bluebell Hill. I spoke to a traffic policeman that attended a reported incident and knew the area about it. I wonder if it's something to do with an areas geology and magnetic fields triggering something in the brain.

My dad is the biggest heathen ever, but has told me about two things he witnessed, one in banking vaults in the city, the other when he was evacuated during WW2. He was miffed.

For some reason this picture sh*t me up the most. This was taken by the driver’s wife. On developing the film they see her mum in the back seat, who had passed away a few days before that photo was taken.
