Spooky Stories

From Highworth and the surrounding villages

Welcome to the spooky section of the Highworth Historical Society website.
Below you will find many stories from our town and the surrounding villages, some of which have been passed from generation to generation and some which are much more recent. No doubt a few may have been somewhat embellished through time and some you may have trouble believing but whatever your reason for visiting these pages we hope you enjoy reading the stories which form part of Highworth's rich folklore heritage.
