Children's author Peter Tye is returning to his old haunts

to send a shiver up the spines of visitors to a Christmas event.

Mr Tye used to live in Lammas Manor, near Aylsham, which was reputed to be haunted.

He has set his latest book Badman: The Ghost of King John in his former home, given the fictional title of The Manor House in Lamford.

The paperback tells the story of two children who live in the house, believed to be haunted by the ghost of King John, searching for his treasure.

'When we lived at Lammas Manor there were always stories of ghosts and strange goings on,' he said.

'I never saw anything but the experiences that some of our house guests told us, and stories we heard from other people, gave me the inspiration to write 'Badman'.'

Other attractions at the fair, which raises funds for the village hall's maintenance, include Christmas cards poking fun at the two ways of spelling the village's name - Lamas and Lammas - Christmas wreaths, homemade produces and local crafts.
