EP51 The Golden Ghost: When an ancient burial site is disturbed, eerie secrets are revealed. Let‘s go ghost hunting in search of a centuries-old spirit on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast!
The so-called "Golden Ghost" has been sighted in Mold, Flintshire for centuries. But where did it come from, and what does it want?
Believed to be a soldier wearing golden armour, some say it haunts the area after road-building works disturbed its remains. Others say it has been luring people off the beaten track for centuries. Maybe they are all right?
On this episode of the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast, join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he goes in search of the secret history of the golden ghost and the Mold cape.
