The walks have featured on BBC Radio 4, local BBC Radio stations, Channel 4 TV Coastal Walks with my Dog and in the national press. The following article from the Daily Mail was one of the funnier ones -

"The reason ghost walks are fun has little to do with fear. It's more about exploring an atmospheric place after dark with a well-informed raconteur."

This walk is designed to suit all ages and is intended to amuse, entertain, captivate and inform regardless of age. It is a storytelling walk, full of magic, snippets of old, and fascinating stories about this ancient village and surroundings. It requires a good listening ear, a sense of humour, an open mind and a torch in the dark months.

Unfortunately the walk is not really suitable for small infants (under 4), babies and pushchairs. Quiet and well behaved dogs are ok if unable to leave them.
