I know there are so many people who don’t get it, but one of my favourite hobbies of late is ghost hunting.
There are many reasons I have taken a liking to ghost hunting. It’s a great way of meeting like minded people. For those few hours, it doesn’t matter what job you do, where you live, whether you have children or how much make up you wear (especially as you spend so much time in the dark!). The youngest person could be 18 with no upper age limit.
Some people on ghost hunts identify as mediums or sensitives. Some have experienced strange things themselves. Others have been dragged along by someone else and others are just intrigued by the unknown.
For me it’s something I’ve always been interested in, and after my first proper ghost hunt at Fort Amherst in December 2018, I became hooked. I’ve lost count of how many I’ve done now but I honestly love it and don’t want to stop any time soon.
Another reason I enjoy it so much is that I get to see so many historical sites and buildings in a completely different way to most people. Whether it’s a fort or bunker built for a war, a theatre or a museum I find the history of these places fascinating.
I want to use this site to document some of the unusual photos I have taken on these nights. I’m not saying that they show ghosts or spirits, just that they are unexplained.
I’d like to say a big thank you to the groups I go out with regularly – you know who you are. Thank you for encouraging me to get involved and helping build my confidence. The people on these evenings play such a big part of my experiences and in helping me have anything to document and I’ll be forever grateful. Thank you!
