Some of our most haunted experiences

During a late night walk through the cemetery with two local reporters from a liverpool publication lead investigator John Leahy was returning to the group after conducting a lone vigil near to the Huskison monument, both reporters asked who the other person was walking across the grassy area between the trees, they where shocked to discover that he was alone all the time.

Location - Croxteth Hall, Liverpool

In the wine cellar of the hall lead investigator Chris Guyers captured on video a door opening and closing at request.

Location - St Catherines asylum, Doncaster

Activity experienced - Poltergeist activity

In the top floor corridor of the asylum are a series of individual asylum inmate rooms, these rooms are currently used for storing medical records and are locked with padlocks on the outside of the door, while discussing the evenings events a door handle approximately 1 mtr from us was moving up and down as though a person inside was trying to get out.

Location - Croxteth Hall, Liverpool

Investigators present - John Leahy, Chris Guyers

Activity experienced - Sounds of footsteps and doors opening and closing

Prior to a public event at the hall we arrived early to set up our equipment, two security guards left us in the hub area to go up to the first floor and turn on some lights, on their return they asked if we had been up to the top floor as they had heard noises above them, we explained that we had not left the room so we decided to go up to the first floor, while there we heard the sound of footsteps and doors opening on the floor above us, on inspection we found the upper floor empty, on our return to the hub we where told that a third security guard in the security lodge had witnessed glowing balls of light on the security cameras following us along the corridor.
