The Hauntings of Colchester Police Station
Colchester Police Station situated in the town centre is built on an ancient graveyard that dates back to AD 5.
Many believe that this is why so much paranormal activity has been reported over the years within the station.
Many people have noticed an eerie presence in the ID parade corridor, smelt strange odours and have reported being touched by an unknown entity.
Some scared witnesses have even seen a ghostly grey phantom near the boiler room!
A mischievous poltergeist seems to be present in the kitchen.
Kitchen implements are mysteriously moved around and sometimes even hidden from view only to reappear in another location later on.

FEATURED HAUNTED HOTEL: The Arnos Manor Hotel
Along the Bath Road in Bristol you’ll find the Arnos Manor Hotel.
The hotel was first built as a private home for the business merchant William Reeve in 1760.
It was once a girl’s school which was run by nuns and it’s the ghost of one of these nuns that is said to haunt the hotel today.
Local legend says that a nun had committed suicide because she fell pregnant.
To hide the scandal, the other nuns bricked up her body behind a wall at the hotel.
During the Second World War the hotel was bombed by the German Luftwaffe.
The workmen who were sent in to repair the bomb damage area of the hotel uncovered a female skeleton.
Apparently, to avoid delay, the workmen just buried the bones elsewhere within the building!
Since then, poltergeist activity has taken place throughout the hotel.
Terrified guests have also witnessed a ghostly brown figure within the hotel especially within Room 160.
Guests have heard a female voice calling their name and have felt a figure pinning them down whilst they’ve slept in Room 160.
