A Mystery of a Horrible Nature

Following in the footsteps of the intrepid Ghost Hunter and inventor of Gothic Literature, Horace Walpole, The Fan Club are planning a night time visit to the glorious ruins of Netley Abbey. As one of the most iconic places in the history of the gothic, Netley has apparitions a plenty and not just walled up nuns and blind monks!

Treasurer seekers turned mad, ghostly knights, squashed builders and flammable Victorians. The horrible history of Netley has inspired many a writer and poet including the writer of the “Ingoldsby Legends” and even the divine Jane Austen.

So join us on a ‘Mystery of a Horrible Nature’ as one writer, Richard Warner said of Netley, to one one of ‘most picturesque portraits of a Gothic Ruin, that the hand of Science ever produced’…… But Beware of the Abbot’s Curse!!!!!
