The Haunting of the Colwell Shopping Centre
You’ll find the Colwell Shopping Centre situated along School Street in the Dorset seaside town of Weymouth.
The small shopping centre dates back to the mid-1980’s.
It was built on the site of the former Weymouth Royal Hospital.
Colwell Shopping Centre is reputed to be haunted.
Former traders reported that they would often find that their stock and display items would have been re-arranged during the night when they opened their stores in the morning.
One trader actually found his goods had been put on the floor in a circle formation!
Fire alarms would often go off for no apparent reason and on a few occasions traders who were working late at the centre would hear the phantom sounds of somebody sobbing and moaning.
