Strange Stories UK: The Palm Sunday case and SPR investigations in Ramsbury & Askern

Strange Stories UK: The Palm Sunday case and SPR investigations in Ramsbury & Askern

Three Paranormal cases : The Palm Sunday Case which concerned Arthur Balfour the Conservative Prime Minister and his lost love, his cousin May. I dont think it would be possible today to conceive how well the Balfour family were connected when this case broke in 1930.  They were one of the most important aristocratic families when Britain was considered as perhaps the most powerful country in the world at the time and they were one of the influential  families in the country at the time, their ancestor being William Cecil, Queen Elizabeth 1.st adviser.  
I  have not gone into forensic detail about the Palm Sunday case, I have just given a general description which I think is enough as it could get a little tedious to get into detail.
The other two cases concern working class homes, The case in Ramsbury was about Samuel Bull, a chimney sweep from 1932. Make up your own minds what was behind this 'haunting' which seemed to involve a 'housing issue'
The next case took place at Askern near Doncaster (Donnie), not much happened but it was well documented by the Doncaster Psychical Research Group. 
I have actually included an advert on this podcast. Eve S. Evans, she has published an anthology of true ghost stories. I thought it would  match with this podcast. She seems very modern and new world but I intend to order her book and be informed of the new paranormal. I suggest you go to her Facebook site.
