The Boo Canterbury Project

My name is Kate Pickergsill and I am a student at the University of Kent. I set out to make this project to explore the ghost climate of Canterbury and Canterbury residents’ attitudes towards the paranormal. Through creating Boo Canterbury, my video dissertation project, I met loads of new people and learned many things.

This website documents this journey.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the project and let me interview them, with special thanks to John Hippisley, our resident ghost expert. I recommend the ghost tour that he leads every Friday and Saturday night, details of which can be found at
