I arrived at Middleton Hall (Tamworth, UK) just before 9pm on the 26th August, 2016 and met up with the other prospective ‘ghost hunters’ just before going inside. After a short introduction from Yvette Fielding and her husband Karl Beattie from the UK TV show, ‘Most Haunted’, the event got under way. The hall itself dates back to medieval times and not surprisingly as soon as I stepped through the door, I felt a weird sensation, a kind of pressure on and around my head that told me something was up. Thankful that I was not alone, we split up into teams and the lights were all soon turned off so that the night’s vigil could begin.
Despite the eerie feeling of the building itself, surprisingly there was not a lot of activity during the first part of the evening, except for the flashing lights of some of the monitoring equipment indicating some kind of external presence. Over the years, there have been many reports of a male character haunting the building, mainly in the downstairs kitchen area, but also others claimed to have seen, or heard, a female as well in the upstairs corridors. Later this became apparent, as Yvette actually managed to make contact with the female and get her to repeat a tune via a series of taps or bangs. This made the hairs tingle on the back of your neck as the sounds were clearly not coming from any of us in the group but somewhere else unseen. Also, some questions were asked and replies given by knocking twice for yes or once for no.
Apparently, this woman disliked the man, who lived there with her, who she indicated was downstairs, as he liked to spend most of his time in the kitchen, which was where we headed next. As we walked in, another group were performing a séance and the glass was vigorously moving all over the place as they were communicating with this spirit. Thus, there was great expectation when we were standing there in the pitch dark waiting for him to do something, but somewhat disappointing he did not, except for one guy who felt as though he was being tapped on the back. Soon afterwards, it was 2am and time to end the evening’s affairs, which as I left I couldn’t help but think that it was too early as most likely a lot more would have happened if we’d stayed, especially if anyone had dared to chance on being there alone…

I am a writer of mainly horror fiction, but I sometimes veer slightly outside this genre from time-to-time, depending on the work. The idea being to take the reader into the realms of my imagination and hopefully create a fun ride. I have written eighteen books so far, all of which are available on amazon, and a few on other sites.
