From the Inside Flap:

This unique reference book and guide to the ghost population of the British Isles covers a subject that fascinates and, at the same time, terrifies mankind. The ghosts of Britain are numerous. here for the first time, catalogued and placed in alphabetical order, are well over two-hundred accounts of ghostly happenings ranging from the legendary to the factually presented and the scientifically investigated.

Included are details not only of such famous haunted houses as Borley and Bettiscombe, Hampton Court and Hinton Ampner, Glamis and Great Bealings but also lesser known hauntings such as those associated with Woburn, the Gargoyle Theatre in Soho, St. Albans and Bury St. Edmunds. The author has also assembled a wealth of new material pertaining to such hauntings as those at Sandringham, Thames Ditton, Penzance, Greenwich and Grandchester. Every entry ends with a nearby recommended hotel.

A GAZETTEER OF BRITISH GHOSTS represents the results of a quarter of a century of study and on the spot investigation by one of the leading authorities on haunted houses alive today.A full bibliography details all the best books dealing with true ghostly experiences, selected from the author's library which is considered to be the most extensive private collection of such books.

From the Back Cover:

Never before in our century has interest in psychical research, in the vast field of the occult, been at such peak as in the sixties. Nor has this interest been as all-embracing - every country, every class and every age-group shares it. The rebellious youth of today explores with zest and never-flagging curiosity, magic and witchcraft, mysticism and the borderland philosophies of the East. At the same time psychical research is achieving more and more academic recognition while for the general public faith in reason, in logical processes has been increasingly weakening. The irrational has become a haven from the bankruptcy of logic and order. If the natural and reasonable are forsaken, the supernatural and the extra-rational must flourish.
