F for Farnham – Ghosts at the Castle

Join us at Farnham Castle for a haunting walkabout with writer and director Sophie Austin.

F for Farnham is a self-guided audio story walk which takes you on a ghostly journey around Farnham, Surrey’s most haunted town.

Sophie will launch four new ghost stories at Farnham Castle for the Farnham Literary Festival. Based on historical events and real experiences, these stories give voice to those who died long ago but can still be heard whispering within the walls of Farnham Castle.

Take a deep breath
And listen
Let the voices from the past meet you in your present.
Here in Farnham, you do not walk alone.

Please note:

For this event you will need a fully charged smartphone and headphones.
There are steep steps and unpredictable surfaces, this walk is not accessible for wheelchair users.
Walks will go ahead whatever the weather, please dress appropriately.
Not for the very young or faint of heart.

lonning, lonnin

Cumbrian dialect term for ‘lane’ – but a quite specific lane. Lonnings are usually about half a mile long, low level and often with a farm at the end. Many have specific names known only to the local villagers. Hence, Bluebottle Lonning, Lovers Lonning, Fat Lonning, Thin Lonning, Squeezy Gut Lonning or Dynamite Lonning. In the north-east the spelling is lonnin and seems to refer more to an alley than a country lane. The Scottish equivalent is ‘loan’.
