Come and join Paranormal Pastimes on a paranormal investigation at Merley House Wimborne.We will be investigating this lovely building .. from the beautiful rooms upstairs to the very spooky cellars. You will be using a variety of equipment plus your own senses to see if you can capture evidence of the people that lived and worked in this house in years gone by. 
With a history of being a family home, being requisitioned by the War office, and its past links to the slave trade it is not surprising that staff at the House regularly report Ghostly Encounters and visitors to the house report seeing mysterious figures who just walk through walls!.

Merley House 18th century Georgian Manor House belonging to the Lords of Canford.

Ralph Willett purchased the estate and is responsible for the building of the larger and much grander house we see today.

Willett’s great enthusiasm for architecture led to the design of the three storey building, rendered on the north side in Portland stone, featuring three balconies and four ionic pilasters supporting the entablature. In 1772 two wings were added one of which contained the new library as Willetts vast collection had outgrown the existing library in the house. Unfortunately these two wings were demolished in the early 1800s following an auction of the books and paintings they housed by the then owner, John Willett.

Refreshments included throughout the Investigation. £30 per person

It is in these these underground chambers at Fort Widley that most of the paranormal activity is said to have been experienced. 

Ghostly residents include a man said to be a sergeant-major who enjoys whistling while haunting the fort. The old sergeants' mess is reported to be a very intimidating area to visit now. 

The keep of the fort is another area where there have been reports of ghostly footsteps and bangings are often heard. These are said to be made by a former prisoner, or possibly a prison guard. 

There are reports of the spirit of a little boy haunting the tunnels that run deep beneath the fort. It is said that he was a drummer and was being pursued along the parade ground by a superior officer, having been disobedient, and fell to his death down the spiral staircase. 

Rapid footsteps have been heard running along the tunnels and, apparently, he often plays games. 

Ghost hunters have detected a very dominant male spirit and say they feel a sense of foreboding when he approaches. He has been sighted walking with a lantern and peering over people as a 7ft (2.13m) tall dark shadow. 

A female spirit is said to be the wife of one of the married couples that resided at the fort or one of the prostitutes that came up to the fort to cater for the male occupants. 

The story says she was murdered there and her tormented spirit is always trying to flee her aggressor. It is also said that she looks after the spirits of the children found within the tunnels

On previous investigations attendees have experienced negative physical contact and voices of children within the tunnels.

Fort Widley is reportedly a most haunted venue with plenty of resident ghosts, Including the ghost of a little drummer boy that was killed after falling down a spiral staircase after being chased by an officer.... Will you hear the beating of his drum, his footsteps as he runs or his screams as he falls to his death. 

Visitors to the fort have also felt themselves being  followed by a tall, dark shadow figure with heavy footsteps. On occasions, he has been witnessed holding a lantern..... will he follow you ?? 

Or will you come face to face with the white lady that lingers in the shadows, who was thought to have been strangled by her husband.

Sightings have also been reported of Napoleonic soldiers and even a “ lady of the night “ at this huge venue 

These are just a few of the resident ghosts of Fort Widley

On previous investigations Paranormal Pastimes have witnessed shadows, voices and a very negative spirit 

Who will you encounter in the darkness ???

On previous investigations attendees have experienced negative physical contact and voices of children within the tunnels.

Torquay Museum
Sleepover Investigation
9pm to 7.00am   £48 Refreshments and  Light Breakfast Included 

9.00pm to 1am  Investigation Refreshments Included

Torquay Museum is a very atmospheric building (especially at night), which was purpose-built as a museum in 1874. It has a fascinating history, with around 350,000 amazing objects and artefacts, including Britain’s oldest human fossil, Devon’s only human mummy (a three year old boy who died 2,500 years ago), and Britain’s only Agatha Christie Gallery (including some of her personal effects). There are also man-made artefacts dating back from half a million years ago up to the Victorian era, and an impressive natural history collection.

During the past couple of years there have been a number of sightings and incidents, including two photos of “ghosts” taken in the Devon Farmhouse Gallery and Explorers Gallery (which have attracted national and international media coverage), fingerprints spontaneously appearing on the inside of the Museum’s mummy case (which hasn’t been opened for 10 years), sightings of an apparition walking through a bookcase in the Museum’s Library, footsteps and banging in unoccupied store rooms, and some interesting contacts via a Spirit Board.

Paranormal Pastimes will be doing Sleepover Investigations at this location, the night will include a member of Museum staff giving a torch-lit tour of the Museum. The Investigation will include a variety of equipment to encourage paranormal activity. Also a wide variety of objects from the Museum’s handling collection for use in psychometry sessions, the portal, SLS, spirit boards etc will be available through the Investigation.

Sleepover Investigations are ideal for Paranormal Investigators from outside of the area who don’t want the extra expense of having to pay for a B&B when travelling long distance to the Museum.
Refreshments will be included throughout the night.
Pastries, tea and coffee for breakfast also included.
Sleeping Bags not supplied, so please bring your own

Red Lion Pub Southampton 10th November 2018 £30

£30.00

Pay with PayPal or a debit/credit card

This is the second oldest pub in England 

The Red Lion  has seen many famous faces drink its ales in its 867 year history.

The building dates back to 1148, when the ruling the country was King Stephen.

The pub was a merchant house in the 12th century, but by far the most significant historical element is the main drinking area, which served as a court house during the reign of Henry V.

The building is very atmospheric.  Knight's armour looms over an authentic fireplace, overhead are original Tudor beams and the walls are lined with medieval weaponry.

The building is famous for the trial of three noblemen who conspired against Henry V in 1415. The gentlemen were found guilty and taken to the Bargate to face a grisly execution. This is one of the most famous trials in England's history and was also written about by William Shakespeare. The most notable ghost sightings have been of a procession of three men leaving the pub. The apparitions are thought to be the three condemned men walking to the gallows.

Staff and patrons repeatedly report experiencing paranormal activity which includes seeing apparitions, cold chills, knocking, banging, and feelings of being watched. The apparition an older woman, thought to be an ex-employee who fell down the stairs and died, is often seen behind the bar area,  described as being in her sixties and only visible above the knees, this spirit reportedly drifts through the bar area, 
Many séances have occurred here with various results. Electrical equipment often switches off and the whole place has a distinct ghostly feel. 

 It is said there are a total of 21 ghosts at this particular location.

 Come and join Paranormal Pastimes on an Investigation to see how many you encounter.

This Prison was extremely brutal. In the 17th and 18th Centuries the men, women and children who were imprisoned here existed in the most horrific conditions where they were left starving in packed, small pox infested cells.
This Prison has been the home to the most brutal Rapists and Murderers, whose evil energies still reside in the Prison long after Death.

Built in 1610 following on Act introduced by King James I, which stated that all counties had to have their own ‘House of Correction’; Shepton Mallet was the oldest working prison in the United Kingdom up until its closure at the end of March 2013.

The House of correction would hold men women and children together. Debtors, thieves, ‘misfits’, vagrants and people with mental health disorders were sentenced to long periods. There are very few records of the conditions inside, many people could not read and write and it was not considered necessary to keep a record of ‘matters of such distaste’. Conditions and favours by jailors resulted in promiscuous behaviour, lax discipline and drunken behaviour.

Primitive sanitation led to regular outbreaks of gaol fever, ulcers, jaundice, asthma, itch and venereal diseases. The only real medical aid was the local surgeon (doctor) being called in to pronounce a death. Following any deaths within the house of correction bodies were taken to an unconsecrated burial ground just outside the prison, the door in the wall on Frithfield lane still exists as do 9 unmarked graves within the grounds. It was common practice with British executions to bury prisoners in this way.

The prison has a long history of death sentences being carried out under methods including HDQ, hanged and by firing squad. The Hanging room which still exists, though has been used as office space for many years. Following the Monmouth Rebellion of 1642-1685 at least 12 Shepton men were HDQ for having sympathised with the rebels, their bowels were burned and their heads placed on poles around the town.

The last death sentence at Shepton Prison occurred in 1945 under military use. The last civilian hanged there was John Lincoln in 1926, for fatally shooting 25 year old Edward Richards in Trowbridge on 24th December 1925. The list of executioners used included Thomas and Albert Pierrepoint. The gallows were removed in 1967 after the return of the prison to civilian use in 1966.

The prison closed in 1930 due to under use; it held an average of just 51 prisoners. It re-opened in 1939 as a British military prison. It soon housed 300 men from all armed services, some being placed in huts in the prison yard. Between 1942-1945 it was run as an American military prison, housing 768 soldiers. At the end of 1944, it was guarded by 12 officers and 82 enlisted men. 18 American servicemen were executed, 16 hanged and 2 shot by firing squad.

It returned to British military use in September 1945, used primarily for servicemen due to be discharged after serving their sentence. Soldiers held there included the Kray twins who were serving out their national service after absconding, it was here they met Charlie Richardson.

Shepton Mallet prison is believed to have housed the Domesday book and Magna Carta, the HMS Victory logbooks and the Olive Branch Petition during the War. Over 300 documents were housed there at one point, some were moved (not including the Domesday book) when Bristol and Bath began being hit by German bombs – the documents were spread to different locations to reduce the risk of the entire collection being destroyed.
Please note - there is a reasonable amount of walking and stairs at this location
