Wheatley
IMAGE: The Devil Rides Out published in 1934. The dust jacket was the work of Dennis Wheatley’s step-daughter Diana Younger. The book was serialised in the Daily Mail, starting on 31st October 1934

On 29 October 2021 we are launching an exciting online exhibition exploring the life and work of the author Dennis Wheatley. Famous for his books about Satanism and the occult, Wheatley lived at Grove Place in Lymington from 1945 to 1968. He also wrote numerous best-selling thrillers and other books, a number of which were set in Lymington or the New Forest.

The exhibition includes a fantastic filmed talk by John J Johnston, cultural historian and Editor at Large of www.horrifiedmagazine.co.uk, who makes clear how Wheatley uses unsettling landscapes to full effect in his work.

This online exhibition runs alongside St Barbe’s blockbuster exhibition ‘Unsettling Landscapes: The Art of the Eerie’.
