Haunted Isle of Sheppey

Although only some thirty square miles in size, the Isle of Sheppey, which is situated off the coast of Kent, is one of the oldest and most atmospheric locations in Britain. Its windswept marshes and rugged coastlines provide ideal habitat for a diversity of wildlife and the island boasts some very old buildings. But these fog-enshrouded marshes and ancient structures also harbour several unnerving ghost stories; all manner of apparitions have been sighted or rumoured here - from spectral smugglers and ghostly animals to phantom ladies and apes, and a wealth of other spine-tingling phenomena. Folklorist Neil Arnold takes to the eerie fields and darkest corners of the Isle of Sheppey to unravel just who and what haunts this mystical island.
