Features

32 The Ruskington Horror (cover story)
In a new series, fearless road ghost hunter Rob Gandy turns his attention to the haunted highways of Lincolnshire and asks why this notoriously flat and largely agricultural English county produces such a rich crop of high strangeness. For his first investigation, he looks back at a terrifying case that was first aired on ITV's This Morning back in 1998.

40 The Medium is the Message
As a new exhibition of mediumistic art tours the UK, Robert Weinberg explores how the impact of Spiritualism in Britain inspired pioneering female artists to explore hidden worlds and forge a new language of abstraction.

46 The Frozen Chicken Ghost
Pond Square in Highgate, London, is said to be haunted by the flapping phantom of the world's first frozen chicken. Jeffrey Vallance recounts how Sir Francis Bacon's early experiment in refrigeration found modern echoes in his own explorations of poultry spirituality.
