Usually I don’t post many news items that involve individual paranormal investigators or groups unless they have captured something interesting, but in this case I wanted to point out this story as it someone within the community doing something for a charitable cause.

Thomas Warrington from Sleaford will spend 24 hours in a haunted nuclear bunker from the 1950’s to raise money for Cancer Research UK in May of this year.

The bunker, which is one hundred and twenty-five feet below ground was decommissioned in the 1990’s and now is used for historical tours. The bunker can be entered from a passageway from the cottage that sits above it in Essex.

Warrington seems to be excited about the opportunity as well, judging from his statements about the upcoming charity event:

British Believe in Ghosts More Then God

We previously reported on a study that involved both the United States and the U.K. that stated that half of those surveyed in both regions believed in ghosts and the paranormal.

Recently a similar analysis has arisen that focuses on British people that identify as part of the Christian religion and the results while not too shocking do show a change in the belief systems in the Western world.

The analysis was published on YouGov on March 26th and focused on YouGov profiles of twelve-thousand users who identify with the Christian religion and a control group of Thirty-nine-thousand British subjects to represent the overall population.

Results are rather interesting as there seems to be in the data a definite push away from traditional religion as well as showing a sample of how the British feel about ghosts and other paranormal activity, in relation to one of the largest Western faiths.

Late last year the United States Postal service revealed that they will be producing a Halloween set of forever stamps featuring photographs of four carved pumpkins in the spirit of the Fall holiday.

This week they released word that the stamps would make their debut in self proclaimed ‘Halloween Capital of the World,’ Anoka,  Minnesota, which celebrates the holiday with events like large parades, a fitness walk and a house decorating contest.

Choosing Anoka might have been a no brainer for the Postal Service, as the town has an interesting history with the holiday that has gone on for almost one hundred years…

The Daily Post recently published an article online which tells the tale of Paul Rowland, a paranormal investigator who seems to have been witness to many strange events going on at Plas Teg, a Jacobean house in Pontblyddyn, Wales.

In the past Rowland claims to have captured the images of two ghost children on the infamous property which has been the subject of much exposure and debate including being featured on Extreme Ghost Stories and Most Haunted, including their Halloween event in 2007.

Plas Teg even had a visit from the pop  group Girls Aloud in 2006 for the television special Ghost Hunting With…Girls Aloud.

Although Plas Teg is considered one of the most haunted locations in Wales, if not the world, recently it added another notch on it’s paranormal belt when Rowland claimed to have captured the audio of a barking ghost dog during a seance held at Plas Teg.

Halloween_scared_phone_callThe Daily Star reported that four-hundred and sixteen people called Manchester’s emergency ‘999’ phone line to reports ghost sightings in the last five years.

Although it only gave a brief glimpse into the calls themselves they are jam packed with spirits from homicidal ghosts, to a picture of a little ghost girl and a woman who claimed someone turned her son into a witch.

Sounds more like 666 then 999 to me.

WW2 Factory

In the Pall Mall area of Liverpool, several WW2 era bombs were found in an abandoned factory while demolition makes way for the North Point renovation project.

Although that story is interesting enough in its own right, an urban explorer who goes by the name of Toc66 later went into the disused factory before it was demolished and snapped a series of pictures, which were later published online by the Liverpool Echo.

Echo readers online began to comment that besides getting a glimpse at history and a location that was also recently in the local news, they could see objects of a more ghostly origin as well.

Facebook user Randy Topacio posted some interesting pictures to his account on March 10th of this year while in Intramuros, a historical district in Manila, Philippines. Besides being the former capital when the area was part of the Spanish Empire, it also is known as the walled city, due to the defense walls built in the 16th century.

Intramuros is actually Spanish for ‘within the walls.’

Topacio was standing on one of these walls when he took a series of interesting photographs he speculates could actually be images of the ghosts of a Spanish soldier and a group of nuns.
