Loremen S2 Ep 5

The Unfortunate Farmer’s Daughter & The Spanish Chest

A knight errant lobs a baby in a stream and twins are struck deaf by a sinister wooden chest. Curious tales of the macabre and absurd from your friendly neighbourhood Loremen. Alasdair relates what is potentially the most problematic rom-com premise ever. James tells us about a spooky storage solution. (Does feature guns.)

Peter Underwood (RIP)

We were sad to learn (after recording) that the ghost-hunter Peter Underwood joined the spectral fraternity in 2014. But you can still buy many of the great man’s books, which include incredible photographs like this one:

Mr and Mrs Ley, armed to the flipping teeth, from Ghosts of Cornwall.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
