Woman in Black Part Two: The flat lands – The Curiously Specific Book Club
This is the second part of our adventure with Susan Hill’s classic chiller The Woman in Black. In our ongoing hunt for places which could have inspired the fictional locations of Crythin Gifford and Eel Marsh House we find ourselves in Lincolnshire, where the land merges into the sea seemingly without interruption, where old rock stars haunt interesting market towns, and where Marconi dreamed of talking to the dead. Tim tries to get Lloyd to walk through an abandoned railway tunnel, without success, and we salute Hill’s masterful messing with her readers’ heads.
