Summary

A Grim Almanac of Cambridgeshire is a day-by-day catalogue of 365 ghastly tales from around the county dating from the twelfth to the twentieth centuries. Full of dreadful deeds, macabre deaths, strange occurrences and heinous homicides, this almanac explores the darker side of the county's past. This compilation contains such diverse tales of highwaymen, smugglers, murderers, bodysnatchers, duellists, poachers, witches, rioters and rebels, as well as accounts of old lock-ups, prisons, bridewells and punishments. All these, plus tales of murder, suicide, accidents by land, sea and air, and much more, are here. If you have ever wondered about what nasty goings-on occurred in the Cambridgeshire of yesteryear, then look no further - it's all here. But do you have the stomach for it?
