Ghost walks launch in Knaresborough for spooky season
Last updated Sep 27, 2021

With spooky season almost here, one man from Knaresborough is preparing to reveal the town’s scary tales with a new ghost walk.

Organiser Mark Ellison says Knaresborough’s history means there are plenty of spooky tales to give his audience goose bumps.

This will be the first year of the ‘Knaresborough Knightmares’ ghost walks.

Mr Ellison, also a performer for Ripon Ghost Walks, said the walks went down well in Ripon and he wanted to bring them to Knaresborough.

The walk will be held on October 27 and take people from the Market Square to the castle. Tales of murder, witchcraft and ghosts will be shared along the way.

Mr Ellison will be joined by other performers and well-known group, the Knaresborough Mummers, who will help tell the town’s history.

He said:

“A lot of stuff like this couldn’t happen during the pandemic and myself and the Mummers wanted to do something in case we couldn’t do our normal festivities.”
