I Have always been interested in the paranormal due to experiences i have had in my life but not interested in a way it takes over my life.

I remember when i was young and all the other kids used to take story books out or read them in the school library and i used to hunt out the ghost story and haunting books, Anyway below are a few more of my favorite apparent haunted locations from around my local district of Derbyshire.

Please feel free to comment with your own personal Experiences


Several reported sightings of a woman in the kitchen area of places a child in the fireplace before vanishing. Ghostly figures have also been seen in the under chambers and a man and woman wearing a scarf standing together before vanishing.

Horns Bridge

Approaching chesterfield from juction 29 you pass under a railway bridge which is a north/south link originally built about 1838. The brick wall of the bridge is the scene for the strange occurrences many people have seen the figure of a man walking through into the wall (People i know personally) These occurrences have happened during daylight and nighttime.
