Spooky graveyards, ghosts, evil faeries, goblins, headless horsemen, witches & black dogs - Gloucestershire has them all!   In fact our county is home to so many spooky goings on that it really should be renamed ‘Ghostlyshire’!  This is a small selection of the supernatural stories and legends that can be found in the newspapers, magazines, books and other records that are held at Gloucestershire Archives.
