Beaumanor

Beaumanor Hall, Leicestershire

Beaumanor Hall is situated on the on the edge of Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire, the history of the estate can be traced back to the Norman conquest in 1066 and since has been owned by several influential and noble families.

Over the years the various owners of the Beaumanor estate have been closely associated with the throne of England. The most infamous owner was Lord Leonard Grey, uncle to Lady Jane Grey.

In 1595 the famous Leicestershire Herrick family bought the estate and set about its renovation. Over the next 344 years of ownership, the Herrick’s redeveloped the hall, which houses a vast labyrinth of cellars, sweeping oak staircase and servants attic accommodation and numerous estate buildings.

William Herrick VII (1794-1876) bought the bed that is reputed to have been King Richard III bed from the Blue Boar Inn in Leicestershire and fashioned a room around it, He married Sophia Christie, 37 years his junior in 1862. William died in the bar room in the arms of his wife, following a riding accident, Sophia out lived him by a further 40 years and eventually died in 1915.

During World War II the hall was requisitioned by the War Office and used as a training center then solely as a Military Intelligence Listening Station, this was top-secret work helped break the German Enigma Code and brought the end of the war to a quicker end. Information about this work is still restricted.

There have been numerous sightings and reported paranormal activity throughout the hall and estate. People have reported hearing footsteps and doors opening only to find no one there. A Victorian lady has been sighted in the grounds and a male entity in the cellar. Whilst visiting the site we experienced a female called Martha saying Hello in the cellars, a male presence following us in the attic and light phenomena captured on the camera.

Derby silk mills

Derby Silk Mill

History

Built between 1717 & 1721 for the Lombe brothers, Derby’s Silk Mill stands on the site of the world’s first factory beside the River Derwent. Originally built to house machines for twisting silk together to make threads, the design of the machines was copied by John Lombe during a period of time he spent working in Italy within the Italian Silk Industry – quite possibly a first example of industrial espionage!  These new machines were capable of producing far greater quantities of silk than traditional spinsters that worked in their homes, on spinning wheels. Factory spinning such as this would have become serious competition for the Italians. In 1722, Lombe died in mysterious circumstances. It is widely believed that Lombe was poisoned by an Italian as vengeance for stealing their trade secrets!

Paranormal Activity

Ghostly children are among the spectres witnessed here as children as young as seven years old would have worked long arduous shifts at the mill. With stories of poisoning, spies, murder, suicide and child labour, not to mention the building catching fire twice, it is not surprising that this location is full of paranormal activity!

What will you be doing?

Guests will have the opportunity to use a comprehensive range of paranormal investigative equipment such as dousing rods, EMF meters (K2), ‘Ghost Boxes’ (record voice phenomena) as well as participate in vigils, séances,table tipping and the use of Ouija Board. You will be guided by our medium along with the Haunted Heritage team, but also encouraged to take the lead in the vigils and participate in small groups so that everyone is actively involved.

Oak House – West Bromwich

This wonderful building timbered buildings has been dated back to 1590 however there are no records of who built of owned the house until 1634 with the arrival of William Turton from Dudley, a local Mill owner.

Various generations of the Turton family lived here up until 1768 with many of them passing away in the back parlour during the 1600’s.

A document has been unearthed and transcribed that details a thorny legal squabble between William Turtons heirs and some dastardly dealings by John Turton, one of Williams’s sons, which ripped the family apart causing great despair.

In 1768 the ownership of the property passed to a William Whyley and remained in the Whyley family until 1837, following a succession of owners Reuben Farley purchased the property.

Alderman Reuben Farley was one of the borough’s greatest citizens and became Mayor of West Bromwich. He purchased the Oak House in 1891 with the intention of making it his private residence, however his third wife Harriett refused to live there…….for whatever reason.

Reuben was resolved to present it to the town as a museum, which was for ally open in 1898.

With over 400 years of history and generation upon generation living here there is no wonder that this building holds on to so much paranormal activity.

From strong apparitions seen in daylight through to disembodied voices being heard, objects moved, visitors being touched, strong emotional experiences , the presence of children and a strong presence of a past master of the house watching you.
This is a high quality paranormal venue

Group members will have the opportunity to use a comprehensive range of paranormal investigative equipment such as dousing rods, EMF meters, ‘Ghost Boxes’ (record voice phenomena) as well as participate in séances, glass divination and table tipping sessions.

Gresley Old Hall, Swadlincote

Gresley Old Hall is a 16th Century, Grade II listed building reputed to have been built in 1556 for Sir Christopher Alleyn out of the materials of the demolished Gresley Priory which date back to the 1100’s. The house in its present form was built in 1734, replacing the original hall constructed in 1556. The current house has an array of floors, some of which have not been touched since the 19th Century and in the top most attics Victorian graffiti can still be seen on the lime wash walls. Over the years the rural setting of the hall has changed as land has been sold off and the Hall was bought by the Coal Board in 1953 to make it into a Minors Welfare which opened in 1964.
This location is a popular site for paranormal investigators due to its intriguing past. An apparition of a lady, said to be the ghost of a maid that burned to death by a fire, has been witnessed. There have been reports of noises of people who have worked there, hair has been pulled and people have been touched. The middle floor has 6 back to bare eerie rooms to investigate. With the land holding so much history and reports of activity captured in every room, there is little question that this makes for a gem of a spooky location.
Group members will have the opportunity to use a comprehensive range of paranormal investigative equipment such as dousing rods, EMF meters, ‘Ghost Boxes’ (record voice phenomena) as well as participate in séances, glass divination and table tipping sessions.

Donington Manor House

Just on the western tip of Coalville in Leicestershire, is a typical little lane with a few Victorian terraced houses. A short distance along is Donington Le Heath Manor House, one of the oldest houses in England! It is believed that Robert De Herle bought the land and had the house built between 1258 & 1295. For nearly 700 years the house remained a family dwelling. In the early part of the 16th Century, the house was modernised. Around this period the house may have been owned by the Digby family. Sir Everard Digby achieved notoriety as one of the conspirators in the Gunpowder Plot; he was a close friend of Guy Fawkes. In 1963 the house was purchased by Leicestershire County Council and the building was restored and opened to the public in 1973 as a museum.
There are ghosts at Donington Le Heath Manor House. A housemaid has been seen flitting about and also a man of 17th Century appearance with a tall brimmed hat, thought to be the shade of Sir Everard Digby. During one of our events we captured our famous EVP (electronic voice phenomenon), moments after leaving King Dick’s bedroom, home of the bed that Richard III, the last Plantagenet King of England slept in on his way to the Battle of Bosworth in 1485. Our EVP hit headline news across the world! You can hear this recording on our YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4GkgTFBPWk
Donington Le Heath manor House is steeped in history. It is charming and quaint whilst being remarkably eerie. The house, barn and gardens offer a range of exciting and different paranormal experiences. Group members will have the opportunity to use a comprehensive range of paranormal investigative equipment such as dousing rods, EMF meters, ‘Ghost Boxes’ (record voice phenomena) as well as participate in séances, glass divination and table tipping sessions. All of our paranormal events to date at Donington Le Heath have been hugely successful with activity getting stronger every time we visit!

Drakelow

Drakelow Tunnels

Drakelow Tunnels in Kidderminster, Worcestershire are a 285,000 sq. ft. desolate network of tunnels that were formerly a top secret underground military complex .The tunnels were built in 1941 and used to manufacture machine parts during WWII. In 1961, the British Government converted half of the tunnels into a top secret facility and amongst 12 other facilities across the UK, formed a network of highly classified nuclear bunkers that were to be used in the event of a Nuclear War. In 1993, the Ministry of Defence deemed the facility surplus to requirements and the entire complex was decommissioned and sold. Today, the tunnels are in the process of being restored back to their original condition in order to become the largest Cold War Museum in the UK.

During construction and running of this facility, six people were said to have died from fatal human error. Throughout the years there have been many reports of activity, including a mischievous spirit who pulls hair, moves objects and touches people. It is also believed that during the sites decommission it was used as a place for satanic worship.

The amount of activity that has been reported here is startling. Many paranormal groups have investigated and this building leaves you in no doubt that there are spirits and ghosts within. Full body apparitions have been seen and tormented cries have also been heard. And not to mention Poltergeist activity.A place not to be missed.

Haunted Heritage guests will have the opportunity to carry out vigils and séances in the most active areas of the tunnels, including Ouija Board, Glass Deviation and Table Tipping experiments. You will be guided by our medium along with the Haunted Heritage team, but also encouraged to take the lead in the vigils and participate in small groups so that everyone is actively involved. The latest paranormal ‘detection’ equipment will be available for customers to use for themselves. This paranormal evening is not for the faint-hearted! Refreshments will be served throughout the evening.

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM! Derby Museum & Art Gallery

Located on The Strand within the Cathedral Quarter of Derby is Derby’s premier Museum and Art Gallery.

Step through the unassuming doorway of a 1960’s building on the corner of The Strand and Cheapside and you step inside centuries of history….and paranormal activity.

Opened in June 1879 this Victorian building housed a vast collection, donated by Derby’s finest citizens, leading philosophers and wealthy benefactors.

The building has been extended several times to accommodate its ever growing collection and now houses Natural History, Military, Fine Art, Archaeology and Ancient Egyptian collections…yes there are Mummies here too.

As experienced paranormal investigators we know that all objects tell a story and can retain energy, here you will be surrounded by residual energy, lots of it.

During our initial walk through we encountered ‘very’ strong areas of energy, experienced physical discomfort, lots of K2 activity and something followed us throughout the building.

The Haunted Heritage Team are experienced museum ambassadors and paranormal investigators whose roots are deeply entrenched in the midlands history and working within museums. For us having the opportunity to work in a venue like this is like coming home…and the energies and entities we are picking up want their stories to be heard…loud and clear.

This is going to be very interesting and exclusive investigating who knows what will happen when the doors are locked and the lights go out.

This is a Haunted Heritage exclusive venue.

Group members will have the opportunity to use a comprehensive range of paranormal investigative equipment such as dousing rods, EMF meters, ‘Ghost Boxes’ (record voice phenomena) as well as participate in séances, glass divination and table tipping sessions.

Strelley Hall – Nottingham

The area called Strelley in Nottinghamshire can trace its history back to the Doomsday book 1086. The Queen Anne style Hall we see today has been built on the foundations of possibly a castle or fortified medieval manor house.
The medieval house did burn down and evidence still remains on the property.

The property was owned by the De Strelley family who can trace their ancestry back to William the Conquerer.
The De Strelleys never featured prominently in national occurrences but Sir Samson De Strelley did so locally, he was from knightly stock but did not behave so, he took and did what he wanted to whom he chose. He was a close associate of King John, which may well have influenced his appalling behaviour.
The manor remained in the Strelley family until 1678 when Nicolas Strelley gambled it all away. He put a curse on gambling at Strelley and is still believed to haunt the hall today.
The estate passed to Ralph Edge and remained in the Edge family until 1978 when the last surviving member of the family died Emily Mary Edge who was only permitted to use the hall as long as she was not married.
This beautiful building has housed many owners and servants and bore witness to periods of violence, desperation, loss and loneliness. Each area has a story to tell from the Panelled Room, Castle Room down into the tunnels and dungeons.
With so much history and reports of activity captured in every room, there is little question that this makes for a gem of a spooky location.
Group members will have the opportunity to use a comprehensive range of paranormal investigative equipment such as dousing rods, EMF meters, ‘Ghost Boxes’ (record voice phenomena) as well as participate in séances, glass divination and table tipping sessions.
