Welcome

Welcome to my site!

I hope to create a list of known locations that claim to be haunted. I use the word ‘claim’ as i am a bit of a skeptic with an interest in this subject. I am not here to say something exists or doesn’t, I am only listing the locations and allowing you to make up your mind.

I have no formal qualifications and other than a few minor incidents, I can’t claim to know a lot about this subject. The locations i have/will be posting are from doing research on the internet in my own time or from TV shows that i have watched.

Who knows, you may find a site near you that you can investigate yourself and draw your own conclusions!
