"I am the spirit of such a woman who lived with Walker..." 21 December 1630. Midnight. An old miller prepares to finish his work in a corn mill in the hamlet of Lumley, in the County of Durham. Suddenly he hears movement on the floor below him, and as he takes a flaming candle and descends the stairs, he is shocked to discover ..". a woman standing upon the midst of the floor with her hair about her head hanging down and all bloody, with five large wounds on her head..." This was the scene for Northern England's most singular and legendary Christmas ghost story. Then another tale, set in the 19th Century, was told in the press of a mysterious haunting that was occurring in the old mill house at Willington Quay, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. The two narratives, seemingly dissimilar to each other, had captured the imagination of many historians and ghost hunters for years, and still do to this very day. Now it is time that the two are threaded together, in one of the most true and horrifying experience of a ghostly encounter, related through the miller and the apparition of the murdered woman, like never before...

“25th January 1682(3). A sad cruel murther comitted by a boy about eighteen or nineteen years of age, nere Ferryhill, nere Durham, being Thursday, at night….” Over 300 years ago, Ferryhill, an obscure town in the south of County Durham, played host to one of the most horrid and tragic murders in the county’s history. A farm servant murdered the three children of his master in cold blood with an axe. It was described in a London print as the “most horrid and barbarous murder that ever was heard of in the North or elsewhere”. There was no motive for the crime, and nothing in the murderer’s character to suggest that such an event could take place, and yet in his later confession, the perpetrator said that he acted only on the “suggestion of the enemy” – The Devil. For the first time since the murders, all of the evidence leading up to, at the time of, and after the event is collected together as one of the most intriguing investigations into this sad and macabre event, and lays bare some interesting information that have never been known to the public before. Did the Devil come to Ferryhill? Read on, if you dare…

From the ‘Demonic County Durham’ author of ‘Axe Murder in Ferry-Hill near Durham, 1682’ and ‘The Vengeful Spirit of Lumley & Willington near Durham, 1630’, comes the final book of this terrifying trilogy… 15 November 1641. Margaret Hooper returns home to the small hamlet of Edmundbyers, following an errand for her ill husband; her mind was troubled. It would seem that she had come into contact with someone or something that had vexed her on her journey and she would continue with her agitation until she went to bed. This would start a very frightening demonic visitation and possession to be ever recorded in County Durham. It would be her family’s belief in God and a miraculous intervention that would finally save her from the evil that tormented her. Welcome to Hell…

Durham possesses the finest collection of medieval manuscripts of any English Cathedral. Lavishly illustrated and accompanied by authoritative and accessible commentary, Manuscript Treasures of Durham Cathedral presents the highlights of this supremely important collection.The collection grew from the early days of Anglo-Saxon monasticism through to the Reformation, and is an essential historical reference for Anglo- Saxon, Norman, Medieval, and wider Renaissance culture.The items range from part of a sixth-century Italian Bible that was almost certainly used by the Venerable Bede to a unique sixteenth-century account of monastic cathedral life, which was compiled in the aftermath of the Reformation. Featured items include the 'Durham Gospels' (a sister manuscript to the Lindisfarne Gospels), elaborately decorated Oxford University manuscripts of the fourteenth century and the Carilef Bible (the first illuminated Romanesque Bible in England)."Richard Gameson proves to be an informative guide to these treasures of Durham Cathedral." - Speculum Journal of Medieval Studies
