Ghosts, Devils and Death Omens; or, A Wild Night by the Romantic Lakes

In this long-lost ghost story from the archives, Mark Rees (author of Ghosts of Wales) explores a real-life account of an apparition which haunted the sublime lakes and mountains of Wales.

It was one moonlit night that a Victorian painter, who was in Wales to capture the romantic landscapes, discovered something far more haunting. The spectre itself, however, would be the least of his worries, for this haunted spot was also steeped in eerie tales of death omens and deals with the Devil.
