But was it just a grisly fate at the hands of the Halifax Gibbet, Englands last guillotine, that they feared? From historical boggarts to modern poltergeiests, the region teems with intruders from beyond the veil: they stalk the gritstone crags and the austere chapels, the tumbledown mills and the ancient taverns. Haunted Halifax explores the manifestations and territory of these unquiet spirits, all in the context of the areas colourful history and wider folkloric context. With encounters with local legends such as Branwell Bronte, it will intrigue visitors and residents alike.
