Newsham Park Abandoned Hospital is one of the scariest and haunted locations we have ever held a ghost hunt. This formidable building sets you on edge from the moment you first see it, towering out of the darkness. It only gets worse when you enter! The feeling of being watched by unseen eyes is spine tingling and then you hear the footsteps following you down every corridor, up every flight of stairs.
Full apparitions are common here and send people screaming in terror, banging, being touched or pushed or having your hair pulled are a regular occurrence. People have reported the feeling of being pushed down and feeling sick and left physically shaking in some areas of this location.
Why not try your luck in the laundry room where a dark shadow moves among the guests and affects many guests in so many different ways. Or how about the psychiatric ward where there is banging, footsteps, screaming, crying, shadows and apparitions to make sure you never go back in there. Experience the sadness and fear along the naughty boys corridor. There are so many areas to this huge haunted hospital, you will be spoiled for choice and with activity in abundance.
