From ghosts and ghouls to things that go bump in the night, a man from Ely has used the town for illustration inspiration for a book of ghost stories
Howard Barker, a professional graphic designer and keen illustrator, has designed illustrations for Strange and Ghostly Tales, written by his father C. Barker-Holmes.
Mr Barker said: “It’s a collaboration between me and my dad.
“He started working as a psychiatric nurse back when there were padded cells so he has a lot of stories to tell.
“I take a lot of inspiration from my surroundings and living in Ely the cathedral is beautiful but also can have a creepy atmosphere.
“One of the stories in the book was one that he used to tell us when we were children 20-something years ago.
But is he a believer in all things paranormal?
“I’ve had one experience before and I think I’m curious.”
The book is available in Amazon and Waterstones now.
