When the opportunity to go on a “Ghosts and Legends” tour in Wales arrived, I jumped at the chance. It sounded like a fascinating chance to visit some unusual places and hear their legendary stories. With so much history in the land, and so many ancient buildings which could have been imprinted with the events that had taken place within them over the years, I expected there would be a wild assortment of haunting tales abounding throughout the country.
