A ‘GHOST walking’ group will be returning for a spooky evening as they guide tour groups around Maldon and share the most terrifying tales of the town.

The spine-tingling event is being held this weekend, but it is not for the faint-hearted.

A spokesman for the ghost walk said: “Maldon is said to be the most haunted town in all of Essex.

“Do you wonder why it has such a name?

“Do you want to find out who ended their lives on those haunted streets, or uncover the thrilling mystery of the Maldon mer-man?

“Then come on a tour fit only for those of the strongest and bravest hearts.”

The walk will take place on Saturday and begins in the High Street at 7pm before ending at Hythe Quay.

Adult entry costs £5 and it costs £3 for under-16s.
