Nestling amongst the Isle's absorbing and captivating history, lurks a time of violence, fear and disaffection - the dark side of Axholme's past! For hundreds of years, superstition, legend and custom influenced the lives of those bound to this mysterious and isolated landscape. The cloying mists that rose from Axholme's fenland countryside spread a malign influence to the very core of its unsophisticated inhabitants. Some of the tales in this book featured in the local press of the day, some were handed down through generations of Axholme families, whereas others are the stuff of legend. Drownings in the River Trent, accidental deaths, mysterious `little people,' poisonings, murder, deranged and disturbed lives - all can be found in the enclosed pages. Folklore and fantasy or the manifestation of a terrible reality? You decide!
