The Ragged School London Overnight Ghost Hunt

The Ragged School London Overnight Ghost Hunt – Saturday 8th January 2011

Thomas Barnardo gave up his medical training and in 1867 opened his first “ragged school” where poor children aged 5 – 10 years could gain a free basic education have Breakfast ,Dinner and help them to find their first job when they left the school once their education had ceased.

Country’s ‘most haunted’ manor fails to sell at auction

Wymering Manor failed to reach its reserve price at auction in London

A spooky manor house believed to be one of Britain’s most haunted properties failed to sell at auction yesterday.
Wymering Manor has been put up for sale by Portsmouth City Council.

It went under the hammer at the Grand Connaught Rooms in Central London.

But bidders failed to reach the £400,000 reserve the city council put on the property.

Auctioneer Jeremy Lamb, of Andrews & Robertson, said: ‘It hasn’t sold under the hammer.

‘We had some bids but they didn’t meet the reserve. Around £400,000 was what they were looking for.’

The city council says it will now attempt to sell the property privately.

The Grade II* listed manor is thought to be the oldest house in Portsmouth and is mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book.

It has been used as a vicarage, monastery and home and its current structure dates back to the late 16th century.

Prospective buyers would need to spend at least £150,000 to restore the dilapidated property to its former glory after decades of neglect.

The building has seen much-documented spooky activity. Paranormal investigators claim to have sensed the presence of between 20 to 30 spirits in the home, including those of children laughing and whispering. Burly security guards have even refused to work alone at night there.

Portsmouth City Council first tried to sell the property in 2006 but could not find a buyer.

This saw the formation of Friends of Old Wymering – a campaign group that wants the manor to be renovated and brought back into use.

The group’s chairwoman Janet Hird said: ‘It’s a shame it didn’t sell. This increases the uncertainty about what’s going to happen with Wymering Manor. We were hoping a new owner would come in and we could discuss their plans for the building with them.

‘I think it’s obvious the council will continue to try and sell Wymering Manor – it costs them a lot of money every month and it’s probably cost them quite a lot to put it up for auction.

‘It’s disappointing for the council and for everyone in Portsmouth that this building hasn’t sold.’

Principal valuer at Portsmouth City Council, Jeff Hutchins, said: ‘Wymering Manor was not sold at auction as its reserve price was not met. We still hope to sell the property and will now speak to the underbidder and a number of other interested parties.’

Galleries of Justice Ghost hunt Saturday 22nd January 2011 with Dusk Till Dawn Events

Galleries Of Justice Nottingham Overnight Ghost Hunt

Galleries Of Justice Nottingham Overnight Ghost Hunt – Saturday 22nd January 2011

The Galleries of Justice in Nottingham which has recently been voted as having the most Poltergeist activity in the UK 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.

This is a fantastic location and one that should not  be missed join Dusk Till Dawn Events for an entire nights investigation.
You will have full use of ghost hunting equipment during the Event and take part in Vigils and Psychic Experiments.
The Night will be hosted by experienced paranormal investigator(s)and Psychic/Clairvoyant medium(s) with the experience to place you in area’s that could encourage spectral activity!

GHOST HUNTERS REPORT…..

DUSK TILL DAWN EVENTS AT DUDLEY CASTLE Friday 17TH SEPTEMBER 2010
SUPPER EVENT

MEDIUMS : SUE AND MICHAEL TREANOR

HOST : SUE TREANOR

The guests arrived at about 7pm and were guided up to the Queen Mary Suite, one of the Castle’s restaurants.

After their meal Michael and I did a mediumship demonstration for them, in which they were given personal messages. I read their auras and Michael did a psychometry demo (which means reading the energy from personal belongings).

After they had a ghost walk with the Castle’s caretaker for the evening, Alex, they had about half an hour to explore the castle for themselves and use some of the ghost hunting equipment provided by Dusk Till Dawn.

Then we got on to the real meat of the evening! The vigils !

I took the chequered room, Michael took the Zodiac room (both rooms in the Museum) as we had done a recci beforehand and decided these were the most active areas – and boy were we right!

In the Zodiac room, I had the guests form a circle and did a simple exercise to get the energy flowing. Then we started “calling out” – asking spirit to interact with us and maybe touch someone or show themselves. We didn’t have to wait long for the action to start!

Many people saw (or felt) the shadowy figure of a hooded man moving around the outside of the circle. The man to my left looked like he had a white, pointy beard – similar to those worn in the tudor period.  Then, in the passageway which lead out of the room, some of us saw a bright light – like a torch being switched on and then off again. This phenomena happened again a little later, but this time the light was not quite so bright – maybe the energy had been used up with the brightness of the previous light! In the centre of the circle, once again several people (including Andy, the sceptic in the group!) thought they saw a white, milky energy moving around in small circles, and twinkling lights also moving in the same direction.

In the Zodiac room, a monk was seen and a lady felt like she was being pushed down to her knees in front of him. Several people also felt the presence of an executioner-type figure and actually saw a black energy in front of their face – as if an axe was falling in front of them.

The final vigil took place in the undercroft of the castle, where we all definitely heard the voices of women and men outside and footsteps on the gravel – even though we were the only people in the castle and we were all in one room!

A couple of times during the night, people screamed in fear and we all felt our heartbeats racing away for a few moments!

I must point out that all these phenomena were investigated at the time, every hypothesis we could think of was examined, and we could not explain anything that I have mentioned in this blog – other than it may have been paranormal.

If you fancy doing an overnight investigation or a ghost hunt supper with Dusk till Dawn events, please log on to www.dusktilldawnevents.co.uk – the spirits will be waiting for you………….

Oxford Castle Overnight Ghost Hunt with Barrie John – Saturday 12th December 2009

galofjusDo you have nerves of steel to take part in an Overnight Ghost Hunt at the terrifying Oxford Castle?

Join Dusk Till Dawn Events on an all night investigation with Celebrity Medium Barrie John from Most Haunted.

celebrity_medium_barrie_john_dusk_till_dawn_eventsBarrie John was Guest Medium for series 10 on Most Haunted for living TV as he investigated Oxford Castle along side Yvette Fielding,Karl Beattie and The Most Haunted Team.

Dusk Till Dawn Events have access to Oxford Castle and all its haunted areas including the castle mound – the place of execution for four hundred years!

Oxford Castle is a very imposing Georgian building with a Saxon St George’s Tower and is thought to be one of the most haunted buildings in the country. Throughout its dark and foreboding history, the Castle has served time as a royal residence, a centre of justice and as the county Gaol, hidden from public view behind an impenetrable five metre high stone wall until its closure in 1996.

There have been many reports of paranormal activity at the Oxford Castle site including:

* The Murderer Mary Blandy was tried and hanged at Oxford in 1752, her ghost has been see a number of times walking the Castle Mound
* In the 1970s a group of inmates held a seance in one of the cells sparking poltergeist activity, in the end of priest was called to conduct an exorcism
* A strange white mist has been witnessed rising up a flight of stairs, two prison guards watched in horror as it faded in front of their eyes.
* In the past the Castle has been used as a film set including for the film “The Italian Job”. More recently during filming, a group of film extras heard unidentifiable shouts and screams echoing around the main buildings. On at least two occasions there has been unexplained physical damage to various items stored at the prison.
* Security guards have long been uneasy doing the rounds at night and the most terrifying apparition was spotted by one guard and his dog on a nightly patrol. The dog stopped and growled while its master saw two black figures in front of him, days later the dog died of fright!

May be you will discover the truth behind the Oxford Castle curse (the Black Assize of 1577) when several hundred people died within the space of five weeks and of the terrible conditions endured by the prisoners and of great escapes!

Don’t miss out on the chance to experience the confines of the 18th century Debtors Tower and prison D – wing and the very dark and chilling atmosphere of the 900 year old underground Crypt not forgetting the climb to the Saxon St George’s Tower which is now open to Dusk Till Dawn Events.
