My interest in the paranormal started in my mid teens when I became very interested in photographs of the unknown and spirit communication.
Throughout my working life I have worked in haunted buildings, which always intrigued me.
Whilst working at a museum in Leicestershire in 2004, on my first day, I was told about the many ghostly phenomena, which blighted the site and was informed to never enter certain buildings alone. An excellent first day on the job. I had some amazing paranormal experiences at this venue (poltergeists, spirit rushing through me and large objects moving without any rational explanation).
My role within the museum service expanded which gave me access to additional venues, which conveniently also had reported paranormal activity. With time I developed an interest linking the paranormal activity at historical sites to the social history of the site and its ancestors. I never anticipated that this interest would be the foundation to what would later become Haunted Heritage.
My primary focus today is researching venues and looking for the connections, I have also developed a keen interest in researching the Witches of Leicestershire.
I am not a qualified historian, but I am enthusiastic and passionate about local heritage and aim to trigger people’s interest in these venues by bringing historical stories to life during investigations.
For those who say they don’t like history…if you like ghosts stories, think again.
Favorite venue – was Snibston Discovery Museum whilst it stood & 1620 Manor House.
I have been interested in anything paranormal for the last 30 years. I met my friend and co-owner Michele by a chance meeting 9 years ago whilst working for the local council.
I love working in the paranormal industry. Why? Because I can see, hear and talk to ghosts. This may be difficult for some people to believe or comprehend but for me, it has been a natural and normal part of my life from a young age. I have had many experiences in my career with unexplained paranormal events. I’ve been grabbed, pushed, scratched, I’ve heard voices from empty rooms, etc.
So what do Haunted Heritage do?
Well the clue is in the name, we investigate haunted locations. Most people have some intrigue or interest in the paranormal. The question I often get asked is what qualities do you need to be a paranormal investigator? The most important quality is strength- mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In addition, patience is paramount. Investigating haunted locations can be one of the most exciting things you will ever do, alternatively it can also be challenging in that it can take a long time to capture even the tiniest piece of evidence. But I wouldn’t change it for anything.
There are so many things that happen behind the scenes that contribute to the success of Haunted Heritage. Running a paranormal investigation company is not just about looking for ghosts! The administration, marketing, financial management, operational planning and delivery is a demanding role and of course travelling around the country with Michele looking at new venues and building professional relationships… the list is endless… for all of that, it’s the best job EVER.
I have always loved the subject of the paranormal since childhood and have had numerous odd experiences over the years but as a ghost hunter I am a bit of a newbie, going on my first event in July 2017.
Since that first night at Beaumanor Hall and seeing an unbelievable table tipping session I was hooked and joined the team only 6 months later. My knowledge of the paranormal and historical venues as increased tremendously. You will always find me taking down notes during an investigation and I do have a special interest in table tipping.
I thoroughly enjoy being part of the Haunted Heritage team I have had the opportunity to visit some amazing places.
My favourite venues at Beaumanor Hall and Matlock Pavilion.
I have had an interest in the paranormal and the unknown since I was a teenager. I have seen an apparition once but interestingly it wasn’t on an investigation, but where I work. I enjoy using the electronic equipment to communicate with spirit but I do enjoy using dowsing rods and pendulums, and I am a firm believer in using your own senses to pick up on sprit. I love the heritage aspect of our investigations as I enjoy discovering about the people who lived and worked in the wonderful buildings that we get to investigate. Carrying out research on a property after an investigation has revealed some amazing coincidences, which I find fascinating.
I joined the Haunted Heritage Team in 2014 after being a customer with them from when they began in 2011.
Favourite venue the 1620 Manor House.
I cannot recall a time when I was not interested in the paranormal, even in my childhood. However, my interest really escalated when I worked in an extremely active building and thereafter I was well and truly hooked on learning more about the spiritual and paranormal worlds.
For many years I have, and still do, attend spiritualist churches and centres in Leicestershire. Alongside this I then decided to look into paranormal investigations. Which is what eventually brought me to Haunted Heritage. I began as a guest in 2011 attending many events and eventually joined this very respectful and professional team 3 years later.
Although I have worked on many paranormal investigations, I now confine myself to Ghost Walks and Haunted Heritage sister company Spirit World events such as the Psychic Nights and Development Workshops.
My favourite venue is Bradgate Park and the 1620 Manor House.
Hi my name is Jamie and I am a new team member with Haunted Heritage, 2019.
I have had an interest in the paranormal for quite a while and in 2018 I went on my first ghost hunt to Beaumanor Hall with my family and had an incredible night. Since then I have been totally hooked.
I have a passion for tech and one of my roles within the Haunted Heritage team is to keep the customers updated with reviews on the latest apps. Tried, tested and recommended by me.
I have a love of history especially WWII and my favourite venue is Beaumanor Hall, Leicestershire its provenance as a listening station and connections with Bletchley Park during WWII is incredible. A bit of Leicestershire history not many people are aware of.
