The Trouble and Strife The Ghost Hunter’s WIFE! For better or worse, for richer or poorer, till ghost hunt do us part.

“Why don’t you come along tonight?” Lee said “it will be a good night” my husband, aka better-half, spouse & hubby Lee Roberts, owner of Haunted Events UK, (get the plug in, he said) had been trying to get me to go on a ghost investigation with him on a couple of occasions since he had started a private ghost group with a few friends and family Called ‘TAPIT’ (The Ashfield Paranormal Investigation Team). I would always find an excuse whether it be ‘I can’t sorry I’m working’ which to be fair was a good excuse because I work as a full time Nurse, or ‘I’m washing my hair’ or ‘I’ve got a headache’ (oh sorry, wrong excuse). Truth be told I’m quite a sceptical person, even more

so when it came down to ghosthunting. After months of begging, Lee asked me again and it just so happened that a) I wasn’t at work, b) I wasn’t washing my hair and c) I didn’t have a headache, guess what, something happened that night, nothing paranormal that I can remember but I was hooked. Whilst remaining fairly sceptical, the more ghost hunts I went on, the more I began to believe that there was something out there, was it a ghost, was it my imagination, was it paranormal, was it senses working overtime? I don’t think anyone will ever know to be honest. The things I have heard and seen during investigations has definitely opened my eyes and made me question my sceptical eye.

My favourite ghost investigation so far has to be at Inveraray Jail, up in Argyll & Bute, Scotland, a stunning location which had a really spooky and eerie atmosphere. Myself and a coinvestigator were sat inside an empty dark prison at around 2am. This cell, dating back to the 19th century would have been home to prisoners of all ages and possibly they’d have suffered torture and ultimately died in this cell. For most of the time we sat in complete silence, listening for any noises, occasionally asking out for any spirits to give us a sign that they were with us, to use our energies and “do something”. During one of those call outs we heard keys rattling, I swear on my life, as if a prison guard was walking down the corridors

where the cells were. Then we heard beds creaking in the cells next to us and from time to time we both saw shadows in the corner of the cell that we were sat in. Freaky and very scary, however my sceptical outlook kept saying it’s 2am, I am tired, it’s dark, my eyes are playing tricks on me. BUT I GUESS WE’LL NEVER KNOW!! It was a really great location though and would encourage anyone who is visiting Scotland to take a look. I would love to go again in the future to see if the shadows still lurk and keys still rattle!! One last plug, check out hubby’s page on Facebook,
