£35 per Ticket

Ripon%20Prison%20and%20Police%20Museum 2929821_a96d5f9e

The Ripon Prison — originally known as Ripon Liberty Prison — dates back to the 17th century. The current building was the prison site from around 1816 – 1878.

 

Several researchers reported a spirit called “George.” He’s described as a warder, not an inmate.

 

Another spirit is called Mary, Meg, or Margaret. She’s too young to have been a prisoner, unless she was there with her mother. In past centuries, babies and very young children might be in a cell with their mothers, particularly if there was no one else to take care of the child.

 

Some of the Most reported activity includes..

•Footsteps where no one can be seen

•EMF spikes, including some that respond to yes/no questions

•A screw (prison machine) that turns by itself and makes loud metal-on-metal noises.

•Physical manifestations, such as objects moving on their own, including table tipping.

The Village Mansfield Ghost Hunt

 

Saturday 12th June 2021

 

9pm till 2am

 

£30 per person

175The_Village1

There has been many sightings at The Village.  

Some of the ghosts that have been picked up here are a Mr Merryweather who was the owner of the Malt Houses until his death in 1835. He has been seen in the Village by volunteers who were painting here before its reopening in 2013. The CCTV footage shows nobody was there but they all swore that they saw the figure of a man.

Many psychics have also picked up on the name Merryweather which was not well documented. There has also been mention of the name Catherine who has been picked up on by many groups during investigations here. She is thought to have been murdered at The Village along with her child. Many people have heard the sounds of a baby crying in the lower rooms.

 

There is also a piano which plays on its own, the owners say that this piano was there when they purchased the building.

 

One other group of spirits who appear to stick together are said to be those of prisoners who were held captive in secret rooms here. These males seem to be very unhappy and often make their presence felt during ghost hunts at The Village.

The Black Swan Inn , York

 

Saturday 28th November

 

9pm till 2am

 

£45 Per Ticket with Buffet Included

 

** Limited to 25 Guests **

about-2

Join us as we return to The Black Swan In York . We have the entire building including the hotel bedrooms for the whole evening with free buffet is included.

 

The pub, like many in York, is as interesting below ground as it is above. It dates back to the 15th century, when it was a private house, with alterations and additions been made in the following two centuries. Prior to the present building, a medieval inn had stood on the site and remains may well still be beneath the pub.

 

It was built for William Bowes, a merchant and Sheriff of York in

1417, who also became Lord Mayor in 1428.

 

Various ghostly sightings have occurred...............

 

There is a ghost of the gentleman in a bowler hat who appears to be impatiently waiting for someone at the bar - eventually his apparition slowly fades away.

 

Another ghost can be seen sitting staring into the fire in the bar. It is the ghost of a particularly beautiful young woman thought to be a jilted bride. It is said that should a man stare into her face he will die in ecstasy.

 

There are several other ghosts who appear regularly. A small boy, known affectionately to the staff as Matthew, is frequently seen in the bar and passageway. He is dressed in Victorian style clothes and is reportedly a pickpocket, which might explain the disappearance of various items kept behind the bar.

 

A rumoured highwayman, who we know as Jack, appears regularly in the kitchen, dressed in riding boots and a long black cloak. Interestingly, the kitchen was built over the original stable yard. He can also be heard singing along to Irish folk songs in the corner of the bar late at night.

 

A less frequent ghostly visitor is a large black cat wandering around the pub. This ghost causes confusion among staff and frequent customers alike as it bears a strong resemblance to Salem, the pubs resident feline.

 

The chair by the fire is reputedly cursed and it is said that should anyone sit in it a curse will fall upon them. We recommend standing.

 

There have been regular sightings of a pair of legs disappearing up the stairs leading to the landlord’s flat. We believe the landlord may have to be legless himself to dare to sleep there!

Housed in one of the most impressive Victorian buildings in Leeds, the Thackray Medical Museum is truly unique and is the only museum of its kind in the North of England.

 

There are said to be many ghosts that haunt this former mental hospital and workhouse and with such a terrifying history it is not surprising. The building itself is vast and has many investigation areas including a pitch black 'theatre' room and an authentic Victorian Street.

 

By day Thackray Medical Museum is a reincarnation of life in Victorian Leeds where visitors walk through a reproduction of slum streets complete with authentic sights, sounds and smells and are invited to follow the lives, ailments and treatments of eight Victorian characters, making the choices that determine their survival amongst the rats, fleas and bedbugs. Pain, Pus and Blood describes surgery before anaesthesia, and how pain relief progressed and having a Baby focuses on developments in safety for childbirth.

 

Dare you join Spookseekers for this eerie Investigation!

** Limited to 25 Guests **

Heskin Hall has many reports of paranormal activity and it’s no wonder having been a centre of activity in the English Civil War with several battles taking place nearby, Lancashire saw some of the bloodiest fighting in the country; there is history of executions and murder. Two ghosts are said to haunt the hall – that of a young Roman Catholic girl who was hanged by a priest as proof of his conversion to Protestantism, however this did not convince Cromwell’s soldiers and so they hung the priest on the same spot. Will you encounter the spirits of these lost souls on your ghost hunt at Heskin Hall?

 

Being a centre for antiques at this current day there are many creepy artefacts all over the building including clowns and Annabelle-like dolls, there have been reports of these items being moved, footsteps and doors closing when no one is around.

 

The last owners of Heskin Hall, Lord and Lady Lilford had guests flee in terror after witnessing ghostly activity in the hall. Staff members to this day have reported various strange occurrences in the hall, with one witnessing a plate completely fly off from a solid wood dresser in plain sight and smash on the floor, yet all the other crockery on the dresser did not move.
