Berkeley Ghosts to be Investigated



For Immediate Release




Berkeley Ghosts to be Investigated



Have you ever wanted to take part in an overnight investigation into the paranormal? Looking for ghosts, spirits and the unexpected in an atmospheric historic setting?

Well now you can join a public event looking for the Ghosts of Berkeley, in a 400 year old building in Berkeley, Gloucestershire, accompanied by historians and mediums to interpret what we can see and possibly some of what we can’t!


The Chantry – a 400 year old building on a site with history dating back to prehistoric times -is hosting a paranormal investigation on Saturday 26th November. The evening will start at 8pm and go through until 2am, well beyond the witching hour, commencing with a history tour of the grounds and buildings before teaming up with the mediums who will attempt to interpret any message that come through, while various experiments are set up. A professional photographer will be covering the event


Recently staff at The Chantry, which houses the museum dedicated to Dr Edward Jenner, has been documenting activity and ghost sightings from staff and visitors alike adding to the many spooky stories told about the building that have been passed on by previous occupants.


The evening is being run and hosted by Copper Phoenix, a heritage consultancy company. Managing Director Tim Davies said There have been some interesting happenings over the years here and previous events have had some bizarre and unexplained activity. We’re looking forward to it!


The history of the site covers Roman occupation, an Anglo-Saxon nunnery, the Normans and a Civil War Battlefield, so plenty of potential for restless spirits. Sarah Parker, the Museum Director said: As a science museum we keep an open mind on the existence of ghosts, but we’re as interested as anyone to see if anything transpires

Tickets cost £25 for the evening and more information can be found on the museum website, www.jennermuseum.com , calling             01453 810631       or emailing info@edwardjenner.co.uk(Over 18s only)
