Originally released for Patreons in July 2023 I hope you enjoy this very special episode.
A tourist attraction in the heart of one of the scariest cities anywhere on earth, offering frightening fun to families who enjoy ghoulish and gory stories told by actors made up as characters from this city’s dark past. When the public have gone home, and this intentionally creepy building is left empty and silence, could there be more to it than meets the eye? 
With rumours of strange lights appearing and blinking on command, strange knocks seeming to come in answer to questions, and even the apparitions of a caretaker and a young girl, it certainly seems this may be the case.
But what would I experience when my team and I investigated this building back in 2011?
Let's find out together when we spent some time after dark inside a building that is scary by design, and ask how haunted is the York Dungeon?

I continue by conversation with Richard Felix, and he tells me of an unbelievable occurrence he had at Halloween in front of a group of onlookers. This remarkable display of poltergeist activity was actually filmed by CCTV as well as one of those in attendance, so you can actually see it for yourself, as you’ll hear.
Join me and let’s ask together once again, just how haunted is Derby Gaol?

But what would happen when my team and I stepped foot inside this award-winning hotel after dark, and attempted to make contact with the ghosts that stalk the corridors and bedrooms of this grade I listed building, that Is believed to be the oldest continuously occupied house in the country.
Tonight, let us find out together as we ask the question, just how haunted is Grays Court?

Ep 77 - Flodden Field

Friday Apr 26, 2024

Friday Apr 26, 2024

This time you join me in the remote Northumberland countryside, and I literally mean join me, as I recorded this episode on location at the site of the bloodiest battle in the history of England. This loss of life, a little over 500 years ago, appears to have left its mark on this land, as the sights and sounds of battle, and of death, are experienced here all too often.
Let's ask together just how haunted is Flodden Field?

Sunday Apr 21, 2024


In the 20th Patreon bonus podcast you join me on location at a 14th century pele tower in Northumberland, constructed during uncertain times when England was at war with Scotland, and being so close to the border required this tower to be fortified.
But what would happen when, all alone, I stepped foot inside this tower? Would I hear the footsteps and voices heard here all too often, or perhaps I would be unfortunate enough to encounter the Preston Hound? Also you'll hear all about what happened to a listener when they visited during the summer of 2023.
So tonight, join me as together we ask, just how haunted is Preston Tower?

Originally released for Patreons in June 2023 I hope you enjoy this very special episode.
A grand estate built around a house built in 1693, and destroyed by fire in 1977 is said to be the haunt of shadowy figures belonging to those who knew the building so well in life. The stable block, added in 1811, is one of the more active areas. Why this is the case we’ll likely never know.
Phantom lights float around the house, and whispering is heard deep in the woodland. Dogs howl and bark within the grounds in the dead of night, and can be heard for miles around.
Would I encounter any of these phantoms when my team and I investigated this estate back in the spring of 2012?
Let's find out together.
Tonight, join me for a very special episode, as we return to Edinburgh and ask just how haunted is the Cammo Estate?
