Pesky Poltergeists in Wild Wales

Join Mark Rees (author of Ghosts of Wales) for some eerie tales of "evil spirits" - what we might call poltergeists nowadays - from Wales' oldest collection of "real-life" ghost stories.

Dating from as far back as the seventeenth century, while these "most haunted" tales might be old, they are just as terrifying - if not more so! - than modern-day accounts. Because not only do these apparitions go bump in the night, they hurl missiles and even beat the unsuspecting clergy.

To find out more about these pesky poltergeist from the "invisible world," press play now on the Ghosts of Wales podcast... if you dare!
