Episode 171: Ghosts of Wales with Mark Rees

On this weeks show, we journey to the historic and scenic nation of Wales to uncover some of the rich history of hauntings from across the country in the company of author and journalist Mark Rees.

Mark has written two collections; Ghosts of Wales: Accounts from the Victorian Archives – reveals for the first time more than 50 hair-raising – and in some cases, comical – real life accounts from Wales dating from 1837 to 1901 and Paranormal Wales which takes the reader on a spine-chilling journey to dozens of these locations, which include well-known tourist landmarks and more secluded spots well off the beaten track.

Mark and I dive into a famous poltergeist case, from Swansea  and you can view an interview with a clearly frightened Marcia Howells here, a collection of haunted pubs, some creepy castles and the amazing story of the opera singer Adelina Patti and her love affair with the country.

It was a long overdue visit to Wales’s haunted history and Mark is the perfect guide.
