(No reviews yet) Write a Review
A Grim Almanac of Dorset 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 the Dorset's past. The wicked, the mad, the violent and the bad are all found in this volume. Here are stories of tragedy, torment and the truly unfortunate with diverse tales of highwaymen, murderers, bodysnatchers, duellists, poachers, rioters and rebels. Joining them are accounts of tragic suicides, accidents and bizarre deaths, including the woman who tripped over a dog in Weymouth in 1878 and a soldier who dozed off while smoking on top of the Nothe Fort in 1877 and fell off the parapet. All these, plus tales of fires, shipwrecks, explosions, and accidents by land, sea and air, are here. Generously illustrated, this chronicle is an entertaining and readable record of Dorset's grim past. Read on ... if you dare!
