Alistair Chisholm's Dorchester and Weymouth Ghost Walks 2009

Alistair Chisholm, Dorchester's Town Crier, has been running Ghost Walks for more than ten years and no one has died of a heart attack........yet !

His ghost walks explore the Dorset Towns of Weymouth and Dorchester. Reliving some of its more grisly history, recounting tales of gruesome and ghastly characters whose presence still pervades the narrow streets and alleys of the old towns. A little scary, very entertaining and most enjoyable. Suitable for all the family.

Walks start at 8.00 pm from the Kings Arms Hotel in Dorchester or the Boot Inn in Weymouth. Adults £5, children £2. No booking required.

Two new childrens' books in local publisher Mulberry Tree Books 'Scary Bones the Skeleton' series create two magical local myths. In 'Scary Bones meets the Pirates of Brownsea Island' we discover the story behind the wonderful treasure still to be found on the island, a legacy of 'Old Captain Growbags'. In 'Scary Bones meets the Dinosaurs of the Jurassic Coast' we learn how an as yet undiscovered dinosaur called 'Durdle Doorus' led to the creation of the famous Durdle Door landmark. Wonderful stories for children 5 to 12 years.

These two Scary Bones adventures have now been followed by two morw! In the Wacky Witches of Wareham adventure, the witches of Wareham take flight on Haloween to nearby Corfe Castle to free a Wicked Wizard who is trapped within its walls. The story explains why Corfe Castle has never, and must never, be rebuilt. In the Nasty Romanas of Maiden Castle, Scary Bones and his friends are whisked from the Temple ruins at the top of the Castle and made to fight for their lives in the Blandford forum. The adventure ends with yet another explanation, this time how the Red Lion came to be a British Symbol.
