"blue-face"



When I first heard rumours of the creature called "blue-face" it was described as 'a kind of man-thing'.  I thought it was just another made-up nonsense to scare people, to frighten children.

The Mourning Room


Nanna lived in an old funeral home but there was one room in the home that was not ... quite ... right.

Ancient things - the old grey stone barn

Beautiful and desolate, the Yorkshire dales and moors helped to spawn The Ancient Things. This is the first of a few disturbing excerpts based on what The Ancient Things are, were and may still be.

Hell bus

I have seen The Hell Bus from afar too many times. May I never ride it.

the spectre collector recordings


I’m a collector. 


Much like the Brothers Grimm collected fairy tales I collect  disturbing stories. Many of them frightening first-hand accounts and strange experiences told by people like you and me, everyday folk dealing with things that shouldn’t happen, seeing things they should never see. 


These are sinister, often  unpleasant stories I’ve found in old newspapers, dusty files, lost notebooks, forgotten letters and diaries. My friends call me ... 'the spectre collector'. 


These recordings form what I call ‘my infernal collection’


I’d like to share them with you.
