S5E10 – The Enigma of the Panelled Room

The Enigma of the Panelled Room

Alasdair takes James to Canterbury, in Kent*, a city positively brimming with ghosts. The boys skip from the Roman streets to a tea house, which boasts its own unique ghost room. But! What begins as a grisly interior design show ends up as a hard hitting exposé. Folklore or FAKElore? You decide.

We also come up with some Chaucer-themed business ideas. If you open a Canterbury grocers that sells only parsnips called “The Parsonips Tale” you have to pay us royalties.

There’s a lot to get your teeth into here. And a lot of panels to hide your teeth behind, if that’s what you’re into. Incidentally**, why not pop into Tiny Tim’s Tea Rooms and book yourself on a Canterbury a ghost tour?

* Actual Kent, this time.
** Tooth pun!


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
