A TURN OF THE SCREW
Atmospheric country houses are at the heart of a new collection of ghostly tales
Mysterious shadows and malevolent spirits abound in this chilling anthology of original ghost stories, which takes its inspiration from some of English Heritage’s most haunting properties. Writers including Jeanette Winterson, Sarah Perry and Kamila Shamsie have penned short fiction drawing on locations such as Pendennis Castle in Cornwall, Audley End in Essex and the ruined palace of Kenilworth in Warwickshire. The tales add a new layer of folklore to these eight historic sites, and range from the heartwarming to the downright terrifying. cg ‘Eight Ghosts: The English Heritage Book of New Ghost Stories’ (£12.99; September Publishing) is out now.
