At The Sign of ‘The Crippled Harlequin’

by Norman Robbins

Wednesday 30th November to Saturday 3rd December 2011

On a snowy winter’s night, in the Peak District, guests
arrived at Peak Lodge for a festive break. Were these guests all they appeared?

Peak Lodge once named ‘The Crippled Harlequin’ after Jemmy Junkins, a music-hall
harlequin whose ghost, it is said, still haunted the house. The owners, 
struggling to make ends meet and with the behaviour of some of the guests drove them to despair – and then a guest went missing!
