Weird Wessex is here!

Weird Wessex: A Tourist Guide to 100 Strange and Unusual Sights is a journey across the English counties of Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset, Somerset, Devon and Berkshire seeking out the weird and sometimes little known sights that wait to be discovered. Have you ever heard of:
  • Somerset's standing stones - the second largest circle of standing stones in Britain?
  • The murderous tale behind Berkshire’s Coombe Gibbet?
  • The Dorset building with a Civil War cannon ball buried in its wall?
  • The Devon village that flips a boulder each year to keep the Devil trapped below ground?
  • The Hampshire shop that once fought in the War of 1812?
  • The home of Wiltshire’s most famous poltergeist?
If not then let Weird Wessex take you there, and treat you to over 200 full-colour photographs of these weird and wonderful locations. You are certain to discover an unusual location that you never knew existed!

Written by Andrew May (of the Retro-Forteana blog) and myself, Weird Wessex is now available at Amazon here!

Please note this book is printed on demand. So if it shows as being “temporarily out of stock” on Amazon do not be perturbed, the printing press will fire up as soon as your order is placed!

Happy exploring!
