A Grim Almanac of Lancashire is a day-by-day catalogue of 365 ghastly tales from around the county dating from the twelfth to the twentieth centuries. Full of dreadful deeds, macabre deaths, strange occurrences, and heinous homicides, this almanac explores the darker side of the county's past. This compilation contains diverse tales of highwaymen, murderers, bodysnatchers, poachers, witches, rioters, and rebels, as well as accounts of old lock-ups, prisons, bridewells and punishments. All these, plus tales of suicide, explosions, accidents by land, sea, and air, and much more, are here. If you have ever wondered about what nasty goings-on occurred in the Lancashire of yesteryear, then look no further. But do you have the stomach for it?
