2: Monmouth Shire Hall The Shire Hall in Monmouth (just down the road from the Savoy Theatre) is one of the most paranormally active places I’ve ever been to. It played host to the famous Chartist trials in the 1830’s. My friends Jack, Sarah and myself carried out an investigation in 2013, and experienced a lot of activity. Down in the cells, where the Chartist prisoners were kept before being transported, we heard heavy footsteps coming from above us, we’ve also heard disembodied voices, and once left a gate shut only to return a few minutes later to find it open. I think this place is massively underrated, so I would highly recommend it! Down in the cells we heard footsteps coming from the courtroom above us.

1: The Skirrid Inn The Skirrid Inn in Abergavenny is the oldest inn in Wales, built in 1110. It’s also reported to be not only one of the most haunted places in Wales, but in the whole of the UK. The inn is famous for playing host to 180 hangings of criminals over the years. A rope remains on the staircase where these hangings took place. I’ve chosen this location as my favourite, firstly, because this was my first overnight investigation, in November 2010, at the age of just 15. But most importantly, I think this place is genuinely haunted! There are 3 bedrooms, and Room 1 is said to be the most active. During our overnight stay we turned the lights off and sat on the floor to do a séance; when we turned the lights on, we realised that two cupboard doors had been opened while we were sat down. What most impressed us that night is this picture taken from a member of the group. Look at the right hand side, it looks like a hooded figure stood in the doorway…. - 180 criminals have been here
