8: Savoy Theatre, Monmouth The Savoy Theatre in Monmouth is the oldest working theatre in Wales, built in the mid 1800’s. In October 2014 I joined South Bristol Paranormal on an investigation. We didn’t get much investigation time at this place, but it’s a place I wouldn’t mind going back to, to experience more! Whilst sat in the stalls overlooking the stage, we played 1940’s music to try and encourage some activity. It wasn’t long before something heavy got thrown from the stage into our direction, but after looking around on the floor and between the seats, we found nothing. I also took this strange picture…. There was no light coming from the stage, and no torch light shining onto it, so I have no idea of what this strange blue light could be…

7: Hellfire Caves High Wycombe’s Hellfire Caves have an interesting history, home to the antics of the notorious 18th century Hellfire Club and their extravagant parties and satanic rituals. On an investigation here in November I often felt like I was being watched whilst walking through these caves. It’s an eerily quiet place, but this makes it somewhat relaxing. In the banqueting hall where the parties took place, our group re-enacted one of the club’s rituals by walking round in a circle anti-clockwise and chanting their motto “do what thou wilt”. It was at this point that a member of our group said he saw a man watching us from the other side of the room.

6: St Briavels Castle St Briavels Castle near Tintern is a great location for ghost hunters as not only is it a medieval castle, but it’s also a youth hostel! The castle rooms are all equipped with bunk beds. You can even stay in the prison room, which has several hundredyear-old graffiti still remaining on the walls, and the oubliette room, where prisoners would have been thrown down a hole and left to die. Not everyone can say they’ve slept in a castle! My only regret from our night spent here in the summer of 2014 is the fact that I chose not to sleep in one of the most active rooms, such as the oubliette room, where guests have had their bed covers ripped off them. If I ever return, I may take up this challenge!
