    My Ghost Survey

    As some of you may know, I've been working on a big ghost survey since 2000, trying to ascertain just how haunted the UK is. My results are at www.paullee.com/ghosts/survey.php Coupled with this is another smaller survey on which I determined how much venues charge for access. So if you're...

    London Ghost Books (And Other British Ghost Books)

    Spinning off from the London Underground thread, where we have been discussing books...I wonder if anyone can recommend a couple of books about ghosts/haunting in London that I can buy? I have in mind: One which has some easily digestible "anecdotes"/interesting stories. And one which is more...

    Anniversary Ghosts?

    A random musing. On one of the other threads I noticed someone speculating whether some ghost or spirit in a particular instance might be appearing on the anniversary of her death or other significant date. The idea is certainly a well established one. "It was 30 years ago tonight!" But what...

    Ghosts In The Line Of Duty: Firefighters / Firemen / Fire Stations

    It appears the main ghost is some kind of camera issue and the second one is just shapes in the shadows. I've attached the picture but it is a photo saved as a gif so there is a lot of artefacting but you can clearly see the main 'ghost' (to crunch the size down I have sved it as a .jpg - it...

    Different Types Of ‘Ghost’

    I believe what we call ghosts are not one thing but many. There are spirits that visit and history being played back. I also have a theory that sometimes we see through time or to a different reality we shouldn’t see. That the reality we know is many layers. For example animals and children I...

    Ghost Tales From Everyday People

    I am 60 this year, and I have been amazed just how many rational people have admitted they have either seen or felt a ghost. I got to talk intimately with men and women when I was a nurse and carer, so perhaps they felt they could confide in someone who would give them a sympathetic ear. I...

    Haunted Hotels & Hotel Ghost Encounters (IHTM)

    Josh Covington In late November of 1999, my wife and I were on holiday in the United Kingdom. She had always dreamed of going to Scotland and I had always wanted to see the Salisbury Cathedral and Hadrian's Wall. Oddly, the only day it rained was the day we stopped at Hadrian's Wall in...

    Carry On Fortean

    Anybody here a fan of the Carry On series? Are they considered fun and witty or just one step above Benny Hill or what? I've only seen two, Carry On Screaming and Carry On Up The Jungle, but I thought both were pretty fun. But I know some things that are funny are pretty universally liked...

    I remeber a film from the early-mid eighties but can't quite remember it's name, can anyone help? It was based around an internal US flight which crashed through some sort of flaw, killing I'm not sure how many including the pilot. Bits salvaged from the plane were transplanted into others...
