The American artist Saul Leiter (1923–2013) became enchanted by painting and photography as a teenager in Pittsburgh. After he relocated to New York City in 1946, his visionary imagination and tireless devotion to artistic practice pushed him to become one of the iconic photographers of the mid-twentieth century


Ernst Haas (1921–1986) is acclaimed as one of the most important figures in 20th century photography and is a pioneer in color photography. The estate is comprised of over 250,000 color transparencies; 100,000 black and white negatives; and extensive correspondence and writings.

In pursuit of my dreams, I headed for the hills of the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands and to the most magical place I know, Alton Towers. Now living close by, I count my blessings each time I hear the roar of the roller-coasters from across the valley. For nowhere am I more inspired as I experience the lift hills, dive drops, and corkscrews of the ride - that is, writing my first novel.

Launched initially on the 30th October 2022, the decision was made in late February 2023 to transition from a site of purely readable articles into a podcast. The podcast (and some written articles on this site still) includes stories and information on ghostlore, folk customs and superstitions, history and archaeology, as well as details on site investigations into our region’s alleged paranormal phenomena. In time, the Boggart hopes to build a vast and knowledgeable community via social media


Otherworld North East (OWNE) was founded in May 2003 with the aim to teach and promote local history through research and investigation of alleged hauntings and other ghost-related activity within the North East of England.
