Read by Richard Mitchley, Eric Meyers & Christopher Ragland (Unabridged: 6hrs 7mins)
Featuring stories by MR James, EF Benson, John William Polidori, Jan Neruda & others.
The far South-West of England, this limb of land that extends away into the ocean, and some would say away from reality, from comfort and safety.
Upon its beautiful rugged landscape of wild nature and pretty tourist laden villages have been seared some of the darkest stories from our author’s pens. For them Cornwall is malevolent, it veers towards evil and the dark arts of supernatural and ghostly hell.
But don’t just take our word, take the words of Edgar Allan Poe, F Marion Crawford, Mary Elizabeth Braddon and many others as they take you on a travel guide that is sure to open your eyes in very unpleasant ways.
