Ghosts of North-West England (1978)

It's certainly not a good idea to drive along the Hyde-Mottram road when the phantom lorry is about, and you should think twice before taking a taxi in Stockport - you never know who might be in the back seat with you.

But for those intrepid sounds whose hearts quicken at the thought of eerie footsteps and muffled groans, Peter Underwood has assembled an impressive collection of traditional legends and first-hand sightings of the white ladies, highwaymen, cavaliers, priests and nuns who form the spectral population of haunted Lancashire and Chesire.
