A look into the more unusual aspects of Birmingham’s heritage.
Is there buried treasure in Golden Hillock? Did the world end at Quinton? Is Selly Oak named after a witch? The answers and much more can be found in this DVD with a difference.
Woodland spirits are remembered in Yardley and Bournville and a ghostly horseman is said to ride across the Lickey Hills. Strange boulders in Northfield and Sheldon were once thought to be placed there by giants. Gruesome murders in Digbeth and Erdington make a shocking contribution and we hear about a restless soul in Hockley’s catacombs, a failed grave robbery in Castle Bromwich and the strange case of the Great Barr man who was hung twice and buried twice.
More recent mysteries include the underground rail network that concealed a sinister secret and some UFO experiences that are uncomfortably believable.
