Join us at the Peterborough Museum. This is a new location for Essex Ghost Hunters, and we cannot wait to investigate.
As always to give you the very best ghost hunting experience EGH will be working in teams of a maximum of 8 people with at least 2 Team leaders.
Peterborough Museum and Art Gallery has been a museum since 1931, but the building itself dates from 1816 and was the town house of newly-weds, Thomas and Charlotte Cooke. In 1856 the Priestgate mansion was sold to the 3rd Earl Fitzwilliam, who allowed it to be used as the city's first hospital, the Peterborough infirmary from 1857 until 1928.
Many of the original Georgian features can still be seen today, as can traces of its use as a hospital – The old operating theatre is set up with props to detail how it may have looked, but the original wall tiles and floor tiles remain.
The museum is reported to be very active and include a grey figure said to be a First World War soldier who died in the building in 1916 from his wounds received in France. A ghostly kitchen maid who fell to her death on the back stairs. Female visitors often report being pushed from behind. A dark male presence has been seen lurking around the period shop on the first floor a white lady is also sighted on the upper floor. Poltergeist activity has been reported in one of the ground floor rooms. Furniture is mysteriously moved overnight.
The Museum’s eerie ancient cellar has a particular reputation, where slamming doors, strange noises and a threatening male presence have been reported. Items have been thrown at some ghost hunters, and a hooded figure has been seen. Banging doors, ghostly footsteps and voices, unaccountable smells, mysterious lights and orbs have all been reported around the building.
