The Hauntings of RAF West Raynham

RAF West Raynham is a former RAF station which is located two miles west of the village of West Raynham.

It was opened in 1930 and was used during the Second World War by RAF Bomber Command who lost eighty six aircraft during the conflict.

The station was closed in 1996 and eventually sold in 2006.

Recently, planning permission has been granted for a solar farm to be built on the site.

Now if you’re a Most Haunted fan then you’ll know that the team did a seven night live investigation of RAF West Raynham called The Silent Town back in 2010 during a very cold week in January.

They investigated the Control Tower, the Armoury, Hangar 3, the Guard’s House, the Chapel, the Sergeant’s Mess, Base HQ, the Officer’s Mess and the Hospital.

And if you watched the live programs then you’ll remember that the whole sight is very active and a ghost hunter’s dream.

The Officer’s Mess is said to be haunted by a Polish pilot who was killed during the Second World War.

His ghostly apparition is mostly seen in Room 7 but has also been seen in the Dining Room.

On one occasion, an American Officer’s wife got the shock of her life when the ghostly Polish pilot walk straight through her and then disappeared through the wall of Room 7!

The social area of the Armoury is said to be haunted by a mechanic who sadly committed suicide in the building…

He’s ghostly apparition has been seen by terrified witnesses hanging from the rafters!

The Control Room is said to be haunted by a poltergeist who’s has been known to thrown objects at unwitting visitors.

A black shadowy figure who’s believed to be a murder victim is often witnessed in the Chapel…

The ghost is said to be very aggressive towards unwelcomed visitors of the base!

Scared witnesses have also reported seeing a green ghostly figure in the bar area of Sergeant’s Mess.

The Hospital, the Fire Station, Hanger 3, Base HQ and the Guard’s building have all had reports of paranormal activity taking place within them…

Terrified witnesses have heard eerie phantom screams coming from the hospital whilst many people have seem mysterious lights coming from the fire station when it should be empty.

It safe to say, that RAF West Raynham is one heck of an eerie place!
