Ghostly goings-on as ramblers seek the haunted sights of city

RAMBLERS from Bognor Regis swapped their usual country treks for a spooky stroll.

 

The members of the Bognor Regis & District Rambling Group left their usual weekend hiking gear at home to venture out on to the streets of Chichester after dark just before Halloween

 

They were led by Julia Macfarlane, the editor of Chichester Ghost Tour – a tongue-in-cheek self-guided tour of Chichester. She said the event had been a spine-chilling success.

 

She said: “The tour lasted about an hour and included a decidedly modern interpretation of John Keats’ poem, The Eve of St Agnes, and mixed genuine ghost stories with some new legends created by local writers’ groups CHINDI (a network of independent authors) and Bognor Regis Write Club.”

 

The book contains ten ghost stories based in Chichester and written by authors from the area.

 

Copies are on sale at Chichester Library, priced £3 each, or they can also be bought from the Amazon website.

 

Groups who would like a guided tour should email Julia at bognorwriters@gmail.com to arrange a booking.

 

The ramblers usually go walking around the beauty of the South Downs in daylight from starting points such as Arundel, Stedham and Eartham Woods.
