Haverhill historian Roy Brazier has launched his latest book - one that has a supernatural feel to it.

‘Strange Haverhill’ has tales of ghosts, poltergeists and spirits, including witches and other unexplained happenings in Haverhill and the surrounding area.

Roy, who has written many history books, said: “It is full of strange things in Haverhill as told by those who feel these full on.

“I have not tried to explain or explore deeply into ghostly figures which move around buildings and dark corners of the town etc, but put forward the stories of those who have experienced something.

“If these are a fact, Haverhill must be the most spooky town in the area. p

“This is something I have never gone into in my books, and is new to me, but I have enjoyed - if that is the word - putting this book together.

“Do I believe in spirits haunting special places? I feel I am sitting on the fence on this, but I invite all to read the book and make up their own mind. The book ends with views of mine on another subject close to spooky Haverhill.”

The book is the result of people sharing their stories on a Facebook group, and giving permission for them to be used. It is available from the History Room at Haverhill Arts Centre.
