galleries_nottinghamThe Galleries of Justice in Nottingham is a foreboding location and not one for the faint hearted you have been warned!

Once a courthouse and jail The Galleries of Justice has made its mark as a terrible place where Men Women and Children were punished for crime’s that by todays standards would be little thought of. Many a poor soul lost their lives here at this very Building by  terrible execution from the hang mans noose,so it should come as no surprise that this location is steeped in emotion and history full to the brim.

There is a vast amount of Ghostly phenomena here. This building is so haunted that the Galleries of justice’s Cleaning Staff will only work in pairs and never alone as in the reception area alone three Ghosts have been witnessed one being a soldier, a Victorian Gent and an old lady.
The Criminal Court Room here has a plethera of activity such as Spirit lights and shadows which have been seen regularly and knockings and raps are often heard in response to questions asked.

Down in the depths of The Galleries of Justice are the very haunted Pits, an area even the Galleries of Justice’s own day time Staff won’t go to!
Underneath the building lurk the pitch black eerie underground Caves where discarnate voices, moans and breathing sounds and lights are often seen and heard. Dark shadows and Poltergeist activity happens here often with small stones thrown and people have been known to be touched by a presence in the darkness.

Alton Towers Staffordshire Ghost Hunt Saturday 4th July 2009

Alton Towers is probably the most well known Tourist Attraction in the UK.

Alton TowersSet amidst beautiful Gardens in Staffordshire many people visit this famous Theme Park year after year not knowing that there lurks a dark and chilling Gothic Mansion amongst the thrilling rides. The very haunted Alton Towers Ruin, a place which has a very dark and mysterious history.

The early Alton Towers was a hunting lodge, known as Alveton Lodge (or Alverton), which is the ancient name for Alton.

Charles Talbot, the 15th Earl and his family, began improvements on the house, and initiated the creation of the Gardens, at the turn of the 19th century. Through the early 1800s, 13,000 trees were planted in the grounds. In 1811, major work began on the house. Over the next ten years, several new rooms were built: a drawing room, dining room, chapel, library, long gallery, banqueting hall, conservatory and entrance hall were all added. As a result of the work done, the house doubled in size. The entire building was renovated in a Gothic Style, and the foundations of the Flag Tower were also laid. Some of the architects that worked on the house were Thomas Hopper and A.W Pugin (the architect involved in the equally haunted Woodchester Mansion).

Sadly In the early 1900’s however, the house began its demise, when a lack of funds prevented the family from taking care of all the maintenance on the house and it was sold in 1924.

The Tower Ruins have a very strange chilling atmosphere even in broad daylight and with over 1500 years of History at this very haunted location you wouldn’t be surprised of the paranormal activity that has been reported here by visitors and staff alike.

Witnessed often is a Female presence that has been seen several times appearing to people mostly on the upper floors of the Ruin seen wearing all black garments as if she is in mourning.

Heavy thunderous footsteps are heard regularly within the darkness along with dark shadows seen lurking and moving about in doorways.

Strange whispering, chanting discarnate voices are heard close to people’s ears along with loud distinctive Raps and Knocks given in response to any question asked during Investigations.

There have been poltergeist stone throwing phenomena reported on numerous occasions along with foreboding feelings sensed in certain area.

With reports of Witchcraft and the black arts, Human Sacrifice and a terrifying folk law curse a very scary night of Ghost Hunting at the chilling Alton Tower Ruins will not be one you will forget in a hurry!

The Falstaffs Experience Stratford Upon Avon Ghost Hunt Friday 5th June 2009

The Shrieves House and Barn said to be the second most haunted building in Britain is now well known as The Falstaff’s Experience and is situated in the heart of Stratford.

the_falstaff_experienceThis very haunted building said to be built upon some 5 lay lines dates back to the 16th Century (although a dwelling has stood on this spot since 1196) and itsfirst known tenant was William Shrieve in 1536 who was an archer to King Henry VIII. The house is still called ‘The Shrieve’s House’, and it could therefore be reasonably assumed he was an important figure in his day and may possibly have been a Sheriff of some sort, as his name suggests.

With almost 1000 years of history in which it has born witness to plague, war, witchcraft and, some say, murder. Perhaps it would be more surprising if it were not haunted.

There have been several fires in the property, the most destructive of which occurred in 1595, after which the property would have been extensively rebuilt. The 1595 cobblestones are therefore the oldest surviving in Stratford-Upon-Avon and on which William Shakespeare himself would have walked on his way to the Three Tunns Tavern.

In the 16th century the property was a tavern and the tavern keeper, William Rogers, is said to have been some of the inspiration for Shakespeare’s famous comic character Falstaff who appears in two of his plays. At this time the property would have consisted of not only the house but outhouses, a stable and a blacksmiths.

Also during this period a small cottage was attached to the end of the barn in what was referred to as ‘the witch of Sheep Street’s cottage’ and is now the known as the witch’s courtyard. The local coven still reveres this area and practices their ancient ceremonies here, particularly at Halloween.

The spirits and ghosts who haunt this location

There are a number of ‘dominant’ spirits said to be active in the property: an archer from the time of Henry VIII; a serial murderer from the 18th century; a little girl who was a pickpocket in the tavern; a Catholic gentleman from the time of the reformation and a justice of the peace who used his power to run an extortion ring with threats, violence and trumped up charges. There are also sightings of the parliamentary soldiers (although it is more common to experience their injuries); the victims of the serial murderer; children and animals. During certain times of year a dark hooded figure with red glowing eyes, who is said to be a very ancient spirit, stands back and watches.

With cobbled court yards, hidden Priest Holes and Secret Chambers this Location is steeped in history and not one for the faint hearted……..

“Many people have lived and died in The Shrieve’s House since the house was built in the mid-1250s. But for some reason, the people who died there seem to hang around as ghosts. If you want to see/feel/smell a ghost then go there because it is probably the most haunted house in England” (Terry Deary, author)
