Synopsis

Badman The Ghost of King John by Peter Tye

A Norfolk Manor House is believed to be haunted by the evil spirit of King John. On the 5th october 1216, King John is in Norfolk, in the port of Lynn. The name will change to King's Lynn after his death and he is already suffering the onset of a fatal illness. Also on the 5th October, but 800 years later in the year 2016, the Demple family move into Lamford Manor. It is an exciting day for them. They feel good about their new home and living with history. But that is before they discover the ghost, or to be more precise, before the ghost discovers them! Edna Catchpole, the long serving housekeeper, anticipates another fast turnaround. Most tenants flee the old house within a few months! But 13 year old Fiona and ten year old Nick have other ideas. They make a pact with Edna to confront the ghost and coerce their great aunt Daphne into the team. They find secret stairs, a maze of tunnels beneath the house and a skeleton. They walk through one tunnel which they think may lead them to the church and it does. They find themselves in the crypt of the Lamford church of 1216!
