Strange Tales of a Cotswold Town

Strange Tales of a Cotswold Town


These are tales dealing with various inexplicable, bizarre and supernatural happenings in localities around the author ’s home town of Cheltenham in Gloucestershire. 

Whilst the names of specific locations and the people involved have been changed to preserve their anonymity, many will no doubt recognise the settings in the area.

The tales involve a number of manifestations of the occult; including various hauntings, a ghostly painting, werewolves, wild children, witch hunts and their pitiful victims.

Tales of terror, malignancy and revenge, of fearful happenings, sometimes grotesque and quite incredible are written about here in Denys Sissons’ inimitable way. There are references to gallows and ley-lines, and cases where everything seems so plausible yet frightening that a frisson of horrifying fear is left behind in the mind of the reader.
