Beware Room 10, It’s Haunted!

06 January 2017 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Poltergeist, Your True Encounters

TripAdvisor.com is a site to look for things to do and places to stay. The reviews can often be fun to read and sometimes, they can be very, very creepy too…..Here are some reviews of the Overland Hotel & Saloon in Nevada. It seems Room 10 may have a problem! I stayed in the room across from room 10. I could hear heavy breathing coming from the hallway so I opened the door to realize nobody was there – not a single soul in the corridor. I went to room 10 and because it was empty I thought why not? So I opened the door with anticipation. And I walked through the room. I felt a strange presence as I walked through to the bedroom. As if somebody was watching

Fish, Chips, and a Demon?

04 January 2017 | Ghost hunting, Haunted locations

If you have ever been to the City of Hull – the 2017 City of Culture, you may well have heard of Bob Carver’s fish and chips. Reputed to serve the best fish and chips in Hull and the local area, the firm has been around a long time – almost 130-years to be precise. I can vouch personally for their mushy peas. Back in 1973, Bob Carvers purchased a building off of Hessle Road to use as a food processing plant for the fish and chip business that has developed something of an evil reputation. The Fish and Chip business occupies only one floor of the four story building and people who have worked there have reported many strange occurrences. The other floors are unoccupied. The building used to

Remember The Alamo: The Lingering Ghost

27 December 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

During my last visit to the Alamo I saw a young man striding toward me looking like he knew where he was going. I watched him walk across the ruin and I thought he was a reenactor. He was over six feet, bearded and his hair was dark brown, slightly curling, and loose to his collar. He was dressed in very authentic-looking period costume. His rust-colored trousers were tucked into black, high boots that showed stirrup wear. He wore a wide belt of plain dark brown leather with a simple brass buckle. But it was his shirt that impressed me most. It was made of heavy, old-fashioned off-white broadcloth. It had a pointed collar and a placket in front, and the ties at the top of the placket were undone.

The Blue Orb From The War of Independence

15 December 2016 | Ghost hunting, Haunted locations, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

Last year, I went with parents to King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. I had never been there before, and I was excited to go. That area is known for having a bloody history, with a lot of battles from the war of Independence. For something to do we all decided to do a ghost tour. The tour guide began his story-telling. We walked on a little bit, and then we came upon an eerie looking graveyard that was next to a church. We were walking past the fence, and it was then that I noticed a blue circle hovering in front of one of the church windows. I stopped to take a look, thinking that it was a light coming from inside of the church. I was confused, because I instantly

The Figure In The Garden

13 December 2016 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your True Encounters

I was at Arlington Court in Devon, United Kingdom. Arlington Court is a beautiful old house and estate which belongs to the National Trust with very large grounds covering many hundreds of acres of gardens and woods with several lakes and a carriage museum. It really is an exciting trip. I was out on a walk with my wife and three young children last summer. This is at the old lake which is on the mile walk away from the house. I was looking at the children when I momentarily glanced away towards the lake. I then in a split second saw a young woman with blonde hair wearing a long pale blue dress looking out over the lake. Then she was gone. I looked back towards my wife who

Ghost Hunting at Elgin State Hospital Cemetery

05 December 2016 | Ghost hunting, Haunted locations, Shadow people, Your Stories, Your True Encounters

This is the story of a ghost hunting trip to the old abandoned Elgin Mental hospital cemetery. I first heard about it online, where I read stories of the former grounds keeper hearing chilling sounds and heard it said that there may be three bodies in every grave. For over 100 years, the hospital operated as the Illinois State Institution for the insane. The unwanted were sent there to die and many horrific experiments were performed during the early years of treating mental diseases. Over 1000 people are said to be buried in the cemetery and it has a long held reputation as being haunted. We initially had a hard time finding the place and we were about to give up when suddenly, we found it. Immediately, we could feel

“I will Kill You” – Mountain Ash Hospital Ghost Threatens A Ghost Hunter

28 November 2016 | Audible Activity, Evidence?, Haunted locations

Mountain Ash is a quiet Welsh mining town located near Caerphilly. The General hospital, a community hospital built partially using deductions from the Miner’s salaries, was closed in around 2012 with several others in the area, to make way for a new and larger hospital. Established in 1910, the hospital served several generations of locals in the area through birth to death. These days, the site has been heavily vandalized, stripped of metal, and its slate roof to now sit abandoned and forlorn in the valley. It’s only visitors these days are urban explorers and ghost hunters. The town has had its share of paranormal activity being the site of reported live fish falling from the sky in 1841! Like many abandoned hospitals, it’s own derelict hospital has gained a

Assaulted by a Ghost – A Living Hell

24 November 2016 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations, Your Stories

I’m female, married and fifty-one now, but when I was in my early thirties, single, and living alone, I lived at 5 Reabrook Road, Northfield, Birmingham, UK. The then Longbridge Car Plant was still there, built 1905 and demolished in 2005; it was literally just a two minute walk from my flat. Number 5, as several of the houses on that road and other roads were, I think, was originally built for the Plant workers and then converted to bedsit flats. I was on the ground floor and there was a woman living above me. My living room and bedroom were one room with the bathroom and kitchen separate. I had twenty-six pet mice and was up at 4 am six days a week for work at 5am. From the

The Black Eyed Girl of Cannock Chase

21 November 2016 | Black Eyed Kids, Haunted locations

Cannock Chase is a place many have described as tranquil or beautiful. A part of England where few would ever dream of finding anything out of the ordinary. It is a place of dog walkers, fishing and natural life. It also seems to be a place of unnatural death. There have been several terrifying accounts of black-eyed children in the area. And these accounts seem to be becoming more frequent… A mother and daughter were walking through Birches Valley when they heard the screams of a young child. By all accounts they couldn’t tell if it was a boy or a girl, but the child seemed to be in distress and sounded extremely close to them. The two of them turned and ran towards the source of the scream. They

Poltergeist Terror in South Shields…

18 November 2016 | Haunted locations, Poltergeist

As yesterday’s post was so popular with readers, we thought it would be interesting to share another famous poltergeist account to terrorize you and keep you awake all night. Poltergeist intrusions have always been some of the most fascinating cases in paranormal investigation. From the Enfield Haunting, the Amityville House through to the Monk of Pontefract, much of this activity is well known for being prankish, playful, and—although creepy—it is not particularly harmful. However, there are those cases in which a poltergeist will escalate its activities to a terrifying and intense level, running amok with ever more impressive displays of strength and power. One such case that has become one of the most incredibly potent poltergeist manifestations of all time was a spooky series of events surrounding a young family

The Statue of Virgin Mary That Caught A Thief

11 November 2016 | Haunted locations, Your Stories

Periodically, we read about religious icons that display some supposed supernatural, paranormal or downright miraculous activity. Statues that cry tears, open their eyes, move around, smile…. you must have read at least one such story? However, I promise you that you have never heard about the statue of the Virgin Mary that caught a thief…. Visitors to the Church of St. James the Greater in the old town of Prague may not actually notice the severed arm hanging from a meat hook as they enter the Church. After all, it isn’t actually the sort of relic you would expect in a Church. However, there is a 400-year old mummified arm hanging from a meathook as you enter the Church if you look carefully. How did it get there? The story

The Terror of Derbyshire’s Downton Abbey: Undead

04 November 2016 | Haunted houses, Haunted locations

If you love Downton Abbey, and you catch all the period dramas you can get your hands on… you may be sold on the idea of living in a Georgian mansion with servants, hunting meets and grand balls. You may even be planning a trip to visit one of the many beautiful estates that scatter the United Kingdom— Chatsworth, Caulke Abbey or even Buckingham Palace. However, if you are traveling through Derbyshire, you may happen to see the ruined shell of Sutton Scarsdale Hall above you as you drive on the freeway. You may be tempted to visit, and visit you can—it’s free. You will park in front of a great ruin and see its splendor and you will want to investigate. Go ahead, but you may want to keep
