Join me as I head into the remote Northumberland countryside, and to former hunting lodge built in 1775 that stands in the largest man-made woodland in England at 250 square miles, famed for its dark skies.
But what would happen when my team and I stepped foot inside this 18th century castle? In this episode not only will I tell you all about the location and our investigation, but you’ll hear actual audio from the night itself.
Tonight, let us head to the darkest place in England, and ask the question, just how haunted is Kielder Castle?

This time I’m joined by Emma from the Weird Wiltshire blog as we continue to explore the mysteries of an unfinished mansion in Gloucestershire. We discuss why it was never finished, we attempt to separate fact from fiction when it comes to some of the darker tales surrounding the building, and Emma will tell us some more of the grand house’s ghost stories.
This week we ask once again, how haunted is Woodchester Mansion.

This time we head to Gloucestershire where we step foot inside a mansion dating from the mid-19th century that was constructed at great cost, but never finished when the builders left refusing the return. It has never been a home, well not for the living anyway, as it appears that the great house which was abandoned from the beginning is home to a number of spirits, some more darker and dangerous than the others.
Let’s find out all about this mysterious mansion as we ask just how haunted is Woodchester Mansion?

Let's begin a journey beneath the streets of England’s capital city and explore the world’s oldest underground railway. A railway system said to be home to the largest concentration of ghosts anywhere in Britain, and when you consider the thousands of accidental deaths and suicides that have occurred here in the 160 years since it first opened, as well as the cemeteries, plague pits, and crypts disturbed during the construction of the stations, it comes as little wonder.
This week, ensure you mind the gap as we ask just how haunted is the London Underground?

But what would happen when my team and I stepped foot inside this ancient inn? In this episode not only will I tell you all about the location and our investigation, but you’ll hear actual audio from the night itself.
 
Tonight, let's ask just how haunted is the Bedlam Theatre?

Let's head to the pub for a few stiff drinks to calm our nerves as we will take a look at an assortment of terrifying taverns, unnerving inns, and poltergeist-infested public houses.
This week we ask just how haunted are the pubs of Tyne and Wear?

Ep 62 - Dover Castle

Friday Nov 10, 2023

Friday Nov 10, 2023

Let us head to the south east of England, and in particular to a fortification that has defended the coastline for almost 1000 years. It has witnessed all manner of horrors and as a result is believed to be one of the most haunted castles in Britain. The ghost of a murdered drummer boy is still heard playing his drums on the battlements. The sights and sounds of World War 2 are heard in the secret tunnels that run beneath the castle. And I’ll tell you a terrified listener got the fright of her life following a paranormal investigation here just last year.
This week join me as we ask just how haunted is Dover Castle?

With the 5th of November coming this weekend, we are going to look at the short life of a man who has become immortalised in British history for a failed plot in 1605, which has led to the annual celebration of bonfire night, or Guy Fawke’s Night.
We will look at the life of Guy Fawkes and those places that he is said to haunt in death over 400 years after he was executed.
This week, with the unmistakable smell of bonfires and spent fireworks hanging in the air, let us explore the many haunts of the Gunpowder Plotter Guy Fawkes.

Happy Halloween!
Originally released for Patreons in March I hope you enjoy this very special episode.
Constructed upon a street with Roman origins, number 35 Stonegate was built in 1482 and has a fascinating history having been a publishing house, a psychic museum, a haunted house offering self-led tours and overnight paranormal investigations, and now it’s a clothes shop. Believed to be home to 14 spirits, this is one of the most haunted places in York, and one of the phantoms that call this place home is believed to be very, very dangerous indeed.
Would I encounter him, when I led my small team of ghost hunters inside this historic building after dark?
Let’s find out together.
Tonight, join me for a very special episode, as we head to one of the most haunted buildings in York, number 35 Stonegate.
