Cornwall is a gateway to the spectral realm, and there is much here to attract and engage the attention and the interest of the intrepid seeker after the mysterious and the paranormal.
Indeed, haunted Cornwall offers such an abundance of myth and legend that, over the centuries, a formidable array of supernatural and fantastical tales have been woven against its rich backcloth of bleak moors, rugged coastlines and sleepy villages.
Tales of menacing mermaids and mysterious creatures of evil intent abound in some of the remote coastal villages; whilst stories of demon hounds and saintly men of God are everywhere. Add to all this the tangible remains of nearly 5,000 years of history and you really do have a rich seam of lore and legend that can arouse feelings of awe and wonder in even the most jaded 21st century city dweller.
All in all the haunted and mystical locations of Cornwall offer some truly magnificent places in which to hunt for ghosts and to root out ancient mysteries.
