A Grim Almanac of Herefordshire is a day-by-day catalogue of 365 ghastly tales from around the county. Full of dreadful deeds, strange disappearances, and a multitude of mysteries, this almanac explores the darker side of Herefordshire's past. Here are stories of tragedy, torment, and the truly unfortunate with diverse tales of murderers, bodysnatchers, duelists, poachers, rioters, and rebels. Joining them are accounts of tragic suicides, accidents, and bizarre deaths, including William Prosser, who died in Clodock in 1893 as the result of a practical joke; the farmer bitten to death by his horse in 1887; and the young man from Colwall who allegedly sat on a spike. All these, plus tales of fires, catastrophes, explosions, and disasters, are here. Generously illustrated, this chronicle is an entertaining and readable record of Herefordshire’s grim past. Read on ... if you dare!
