Specter Of Tappington, The
Broadcast: 12th March 1944

This house, Tappington Everon called Tappton for short is an antiquated but commodious manor house in the English countryside of Kent. Sir Giles Inglesby who was High Sheriff to Queen Elizabeth and ancestor to Tom Inglesby 14th heir to this forbidding old house built it. Set in a grove of tall dark trees, legends have sprung up about it that add gloom to its sinister reputation.
