British Goblins: Welsh Folk Lore, Fairy
Mythology, Legends and Traditions (1881)
Book 2 Chapter 4
We hear about the grotesque ghosts of Welsh folklore, the story of the minister and the phantom horseman, Anne Jenkins and the giant ghost with the long black tongue. Sikes also tells us about dark or black men in the Mabinogion, spinning or whirling ghosts as well as those that play tricks on people. He leaves us with the story of the Tridoll Valley ghost and its many antics with stones, pilchards and the maid's bed-clothes!
