Dean Powell has created a fascinating series of ghost tours through the ancient hilltop town of Llantrisant in South Wales.

Modern Relgiion 33Dressed as a Victorian undertaker, he leads thousands of people through the streets of his hometown where he is regarded as an expert local historian. 

Why not join him and learn more about the grisly past of this ancient community by joining one of the chilling ghost walks around Llantrisant.

From witches and spirits to murders and plagues, the journey will bewilder and terrify as you walk the historic streets and hear blood-curdling stories of the past.

Starting at the Castle Green you learn of Norman soldiers slaughtered in the tower, how the troubled souls of executed criminals haunt the site and why the Raven's Tower must never fall or it will seal the doom of the town.

Walk the cobbled streets and find out more about Llantrisant's original pagan site of worship, the druids, witchcraft and blood drenched altar stones.

Then learn about the coming of the Black Death, the epidemics, the foul stench of the streets and the ghostly apparitions of lost children looking for their plague-victim parents.

Hear stories of haunted homes, public houses and shops before reaching the former Workhouse where you may catch a glimpse of its ghostly warden whose rattling keys and footsteps can still be heard from the upper rooms.

Then take a frightening journey to one of the most haunted landmarks in the town, wander its darkened cells where spirits remain locked in the bowels of the building - but are pleased to welcome a newcomer to join them!
