A “deep seated, long established, irrepressible love” of Lancaster inspired an author to write a gothic novella about the city’s “darker realities”.

The Silent Tomb of Mr Castletown (An Education For Miss Verity Goodsense) by “Anne Nomminus”, looks at the effect that the university has had on Lancaster over the last 50 years, using fictional characters and a satirical tone.

It also explores the city’s late night economy through the eyes of prospective student Verity Goodsense and her parents, looking particularly at alcohol fuelled behaviour and the late night drinking culture.
