Lighthouses and the Paranormal

A Folklore Society online talk, by Mark Lewis

Tuesday 21 March 2023, 18:00 GMT

Lighthouses have always had a long association with the supernatural and are the focus for many mysterious stories, often involving murder, suicides or strange disappearances. This talk discusses and attempts to interpret the accounts of ghosts, poltergeists, phantom lights, and other paranormal phenomena that have been reported in many world lighthouses.

Mark is a freelance artist, semi-retired university lecturer and public speaker. He is also a folklorist and has been a member of The Folklore Society since 1987. He has a particular interest in unusual local customs and rituals and in 2013 he published Days and Rites, a book on the folklore and popular customs of the church. Furthermore, Mark is passionate about lighthouses, being an active member of the Association of Lighthouse Keepers and is currently their Education Officer.
