A solider believed to be called James or Jack is said to haunt the barracks and paranormal groups have reported him to have an eye for women. It is said that if he is attracted to the woman he has a habit of grabbing and inappropriately touching them. If it a woman that he finds less attractive he is said to try to scare them and physically push them. He is said to only interact with female investigators and believes himself to be superior to other men and will ignore and not react to their requests.

The Hive, 19 Market Place, Winsford, CW73DA

Our chosen venue is situated in the heart of Winsford town and has always been a local hostelry providing our community with a place to go and enjoy an ale or two with friends. The building was first occupied in 1767 and opened its doors as The Cock Inn. Situated in an area of the marketplace known as ‘lady of the night’ it was a drinks establishment for the men and travellers of Winsford. In 1780, The Cock Inn changed its name to The Royal Oak, then in 1975 - some of you may remember - it became The Bees Knees. It changed to Chasers, De Bees and to the present day…THE HIVE. The history of the building is what makes it of such interest to paranormal investigators. Footsteps have been heard, and the cellar and upstairs rooms are particularly active. The occupants of the building, over the years, have many a story to tell. We won’t be telling you these stories so those of you who are sensitive to the paranormal will have the opportunity to share with us anything you see, feel, hear or sense and we might be able to validate them with what we know of the buildings history.

Graiseley Old Hall, Carlton Road, Wolverhampton WV30LP

'The house that cries' This ancient house in Wolverhampton has many chilling stories to tell. During our ghost hunt within the walls of 'The House That Cries' you will have the opportunity to investigate the centuries old rooms, sinister cellars and foreboding servants quarters. Little is known of the history of Graisley Old Hall until the 16th century but evidence shows that the property was in existence in 1377. In the 17th century one of Oliver Cromwell's justices of the peace lost the ownership of the house as he used it to pay off a gambling debt. The old former hall gained it`s name as the house that cries back in the 1980s by a Midlands Newspaper, This was because strange mysterious pools of water would appear in this old hall with no logical explanation. This old haunted house has been on the receiving end of whispers moans and groans for many years. The owners who reside on the opposite end of the hall have experienced poltergeist activity on many occasions. Heavy footsteps have been heard here, along with many guests seeing an apparition of what appears to be a boy by the fireplace in the main sitting room. Door handles have been seen turning and moving by unforeseen hands, doors heard banging or rattling. Are you ready to step out of your comfort zone ? We have secured two evenings in 2023 25th March 2023 22nd July 2023 £35 pp including drinks, snacks throughout the evening , use of the investigation equipment, time with experienced investigators and lots of experiments. please feel free to bring your own cameras, recording devices etc. Its your night lets make it a good one !

Shibden Hall, Halifax

We are very excited to be able to carry out an event at the home of 'Gentleman Jack', the home of the fabulous Anne Lister The hall was owned by the Lister family from 1615 until 1933, when the death of John Lister led to it being donated to the Halifax Corporation and opened as a folk museum. Its most famous occupant was Anne Lister who inherited the estate in 1826 following the death of her uncle James. During her tenure she made extensive alteration to the building and grounds but further improvements were curtailed by her death from the plague on her travels in Russia in 1840. Experiences include encounters at dawn with a nebulous black shape moving overhead and on several occasions the smell of pipe-smoke in the cellar and tower, thought to be an echo of the last occupant Dr. John Lister, a noted antiquarian and inveterate pipe-smoker. There are also reports of a former curator who witnessed the spectre of a cat pass straight through her office wall; the ghost of a girl drowned in a nearby pond, who only appears in summer; and finally the manifestation of a headless coachman who drives around the grounds by night in a distinctive yellow-liveried coach made for Lord Lonsdale in the 18th Century and now on display at the Hall. For £40pp you will have access to experienced paranormal investigators, numerous equipment and experiments, full access to Shibden Hall, drinks and snacks all evening from 7pm - 1am
