How I started my paranormal journey.

I would sit up late at night watching those old black and white horror shows. Then I was brave enough to move onto colour.
I was always interested in ghost stories, old legends and stories from our past.

Then my nan told me a story that would put me on my journey into the paranormal
It was about a headless man that walked a country lane next to my nan's childhood home. In fact, she had seen him herself.
I had always remembered the story and a few years ago, I found, quite by chance, a newspaper cutting about a murder in the area my nan lived. I researched my nan's story and found out the true facts.

I realised that I enjoyed researching as much as an investigation.
With this in mind, every area I visit, I research and you will be surprised what information can be found.
So thanks to my nan, I lead an exciting life as a paranormal investigater.

I would like to point out that I do take this very seiously.
I am out to prove, one way or the other, IS THERE ANOTHER LIFE WHEN WE PASS or is it just our imagination.

The Boot and Slipper, Wettenhall

The Boot and Slipper 18th November 2006
Wettenhall, Nr Winsford


This is a black and white 17th century building, which has now been extended. It was first known as The Boot and Slipper but was changed to The Royal Oak during the late 1870's to 1880's. It was then changed back to The Boot and Slipper.

Part of the pub used to be a house and one of the old landlords(Ray) lived in the house with his family while working the pub.


Male ghost number 1 ... he wears a flat dark cap, black waistcoat and seen with a dog.

Male ghost number 2 ... he is average heoght, about 70-75 years old, dressed in the 30's and 40's era with a black waistcoat or jacket and is bald.

Male ghost number 3 ... he has dark hair, aged about 60 years old, dressed in 50's style with black trousers, open shirt and mulit coloured paisley waistcoat.

People have reported seeing Raymond Harding(ex landlord Ray). He is dressed as male ghost 3. He is fondly remembered by many of the old regulars.

Voices have been heard in both male and female.

Loud bangs and thuds heard.

The large wooden chopping board in the kitchen has thrown itself across the room and smashed into the fridge.

A bottle was heard smashing on the floor when the pub was locked up and landlord and landlady were upstairs. They went to look and it was a whisky bottle lying on the floor(Ray's fav drink).

Doors open and close.

Staff have heard their names called out when no one else is about.

We started our investigation at 11pm with myself, Phil, Kath andJoan (the landlady) and Trudy (barmaid from the pub) and took the base temp readings for the pub. These were between 21 and 25. But as we measured the EMF readings by the bar, through the archway in the small diningroom and the door leading back into the bar, our readings were going through the roof. But normal everywhere else. I would like to point out that we did check for electric cables and there wasnt any. I took several photos but all I got were orbs (maybe dust).

By 12.15am, it was noticed that the door leading from the small diningroom to the new extension was open. This door had been closed tighty but as we examined it, it had been locked whilst ajar, and we could no longer close the door. Keys were needed to unlock this before we could close it again. How had this happened? Kath's torch and her infa red stopped working. We also heard knocking sounds. I felt a cold blast up my back.

Kath and I stayed in the small diningroom and Phil, landlady and Joan(barmaid) went out. We heard the same door rattling and banging, as though someone was messing about with it. At 12.50am, the same door opened slightly, again no one was about. Kath and I heard what sounded like a cat, but it may have come from outside.

By 1.30am, we were all sitting together in the small dininfroom. We were talking about the history and activity in the building. All off a sudden the EMF reader went off and a bright goldish light was seen above our table as we were talking about Ray. The sound of HA HA was heard as we were talking about the whisky bottle. The archway would catch a cold breeze every now and again. The laptop(which was recording and filming the archway) caught quite a few orbs in this area during the whole night.

We finished at 3am.

It was a very interesting evening. The archway and the door opening, along with the sound of laughter ment to me that this building was worth a second visit.
