Ghost hunter school at haunted castle
From Lakeland Radio in the U.K.:
A new school for ghost hunters is being launched at a Lake District spot that is reputed to be one of the country’s most haunted buildings. Dr Jason Braithwaite wants to teach people the genuine scientific skills needed to investigate ‘haunted’ houses, in a two-day course at Muncaster Castle.More information at the Muncaster Castle site.
Muncaster is one of Britain's most haunted castles. Paranormal researchers often come to the Castle to seek rational explanations of the strange happenings, without success. Many tales revolve around Tom Fool, a powerful force at Muncaster. Tom is rarely seen, but his spirit continues to play tricks on people at Muncaster. Hauntings often occur in The Tapestry Room. Visitors complain of the disturbed nights, hear footsteps outside the the room, see the door handle turning, and the door opening although nobody is there. A child is frequently heard crying towards the window end of the room, and sometimes a lady heard singing, comforting a sick child. Visitors have also felt cold in the room for no apparent reason.
