Book on Biggin Hill ghost sightings comes out
From: This is Local London
Biggin Hill, October 30th: An author has written a haunting account
of the spooks and spectres of Biggin Hill.
Ghosts of Biggin Hill by aviation expert Bob Ogley is has just been
released, 10 years after the release of Biggin on The Bump.
Mr Ogley had been meaning to write the book after learning, from
locals, about the many sightings of ghosts around Biggin Hill. But due
to the success of Biggin on the Bump, which has never been taken out
of print, it took 10 years to do so. It has been written with help of
News Shopper readers following a feature, Ghost Riders in the Sky,
published in July.
Mr Ogley said: I have always been sceptical about ghosts but, after
speaking to people, you start to believe it. There are so many
accounts which are often similar.
He felt a sense of urgency as the people who could give first-hand
accounts were becoming scarce.
I wanted to get the facts before the secrets were taken to the grave
with the people who knew most.
The book weaves the history of the airfield during the Second World
War with eyewitness accounts from more than 20 people.
Mr Ogley will sign copies of his book tomorrow (Thursday) in
