Nottingham site ranked among most haunted in UK Nottingham site ranked among most haunted in UK Paranormal enthusiasts have revealed the UK's most haunted locations for 2019 with Nottinghamshire bagging two spooky spots on the nationwide list. Spanning the creepiest corners of the country including pubs, hospitals, houses, castles, prisons and forests, the top 100 places were ranked in order of numbers of reports of paranormal activity, unique ghosts count and the longevity of the haunting. Nottinghamshire has claimed two new entries this year with Kelham Hall, in Newark, charting at No. 72 thanks to claims of doors slamming on their own, disembodied footsteps and objects moving of their own accord. In at No. 29 is Nottingham's Haunted Museum, in Mapperley Opened last summer by paranormal enthusiasts Steve and Marie Wesson, the couple have already witnessed a ghostly groping and supernatural sightings of spectres inside what was once a popular picturehouse. Artefacts within the museum include a fridge that was once used to chill the dead from the morgue of Denbigh Asylum in Wales and an instrument used to summon Satan called the Devil's Guitar, which came all the way from Iraq. The number one spot on the list was awarded to Chillingham Castle, in Alnwick, where during renovations the skeleton of a boy with blue clothes was found inside a three-meter thick wall. The bones on his fingers were worn away from his attempts at scratching at the wall in a desperate bid for freedom.
