Dorset ghost stories wanted

Recent, first hand stories of ghostly encounters in the Dorset area are being sought for a new book being written for charity.

Cathie O'Donnell is mainly concentrating on the Blandford and Wimborne areas, including the out-lying villages - for example Shillingstone, Durweston, Wool, Wooland, Cowgrove, Ibberton, and the likes. So far stories include phantom armies, black dogs, white ladies, a couple of monks, two drowned men, phantom coaches and much more. Cathie tries to research the stories to un-earth any stories or clues to who/what the ghost is, which can be fascinating.

Email Cathie your stories at deaddorset@yahoo.com

And if you would like to try something a little unusual then Cathie organises a Ghost Walk in Blandford on Halloween. It starts at the Crown Hotel, Blandford, at 19.30 and lasts until 21.30 approx. Adults £3, children £1.50, with all proceeds going to Dorset Cancer Care. Last year £208 was raised.
