Event description

Description


Paranation have limited places and invite you to join us for an evening of paranormal investigating at Brighton Old Police Cells Museum, Brighton, dating back to the 1830's. Original prisoner graffiti adorns the cell walls and there has been a long standing history of hauntings.


You will have full access to both cell blocks downstairs, together with the sub-basement area.


A location that takes on a sinister feel after dark, join us as we investigate this eerie location.



History

The location housed the Brighton Borough main police station from 1830 to 1967.

The Museum is situated below the Town Hall. The Town Hall was built in 1832 on the ground which in the 13th century was the market garden tended by monks, forming part of St Bartholomews Priory.

The venue is now a museum which houses a unique collection of trunchions and tipstaves, one of the largest in the country.

The collection was made by Alderman Caffyn and is on permanent loan to the museum from the Sussex police authority.


Activity

A truly spine chilling location and we can't begin to list the many accounts of activity we have witnessed here. Here are just a few:


• Reported to be predominantly haunted by a Chief Constable murdered by a prisoner in 1844
• One cell is claimed to be particularly haunted

• Troubled souls that were incarcerated in the cells and detention areas, most likely to have been abused by early policing methods

• The spectral figure of a man clad in dark attire has been seen down in the cellars

• The apparition of a man in a long dark coat and top hat appear from the area of the old cells in the 1980's
• Ghostly monks butchered by the French in 1514 are also said to reside in the basement

• The spectre of a repulsive hag-like figure wearing a long flowing gown has also been seen

• We may also come across chattering of old councillors who have been chatting away there for the best part of two centuries

• Charles Dickens also gave readings to packed audiences here
