A Peculiar Horror examines the connection between place and memory, and how the two can become so intrinsically linked that they become inseparable. Shot at Gullet Quarry in Malvern, Worcestershire, this series looks at how beauty and tragedy can coexist. This beauty spot has sadly been the location of a number of deaths over the years since the quarry's closure in the 1970s. 
The title comes from The Times newspaper article in which poet George Bernard Shaw, a vocal critic of the quarrying in Malvern, stated that the approach to Malvern used to have ‘a peculiar charm’ and that it now has ‘a peculiar horror’.
