Illustration for 'An Episode of Cathedral History': my favourite ghost story by M.R. James.
An ancient cathedral in the fen country is being renovated. Those involved in the work witness a series of frightening 'visitations'.
Hidden in the tale is the implication that there are two ghosts. One has been trapped for centuries in the vault of a crusader knight. The other is her mate.
He waits for her in the woods.
