A grandson of Peter, my father (Christopher) was responsible for many of the photographs used to illustrate entries for haunted places, from the Gazetteer of British Ghosts onwards.
After Peter’s passing in 2014, I felt compelled to fulfil his wish that his legacy be preserved, and began to endeavour to republish the increasing number of parts of his body of work that had fallen out of print. At the same time, I began to carefully read his autobiography, learning for the first time the true nature and extent of his paranormal investigation. This prompted the idea to create something to give expression to his life and work, using his memoir as a primary source.
