A paranormal expert says she has been left shocked after experiencing a ghostly encounter on a visit to a haunted Derbyshire hall.

Charlene Lowe Kemp, 32, was visiting the Old Gresley Hall in Swadlincote, after hearing of its troubled past.

She says the hall, which dates back to the 15th century, was built from the materials and on the site of the old Gresley Priory which dates from the 12th century.

She adds that the hall has previously been haunted by monks, children and a maid, thought to have lived and died there over the years.

Previous visitors to the site have reported an “unkind” man and a woman appearing several times.

She said: “We went to Old Gresley Hall, it was a few weeks ago now, but we’ve investigated there before.

“It is one of those buildings where something always seems to happen that makes you question whether there is an afterlife.

“This particular night, there were only four of us there, and we were investigating the second floor.

“We were doing an EVP session, and the bear in front of the chair was flashing, as if it were being touched.”

Charlene, along with fellow ghost-hunters Simon Wilson, Amy Sirdifield and Pat Cuper, conducted the EVP session which uses a machine to identify electronic recordings and interprets them as voices and communication from paranormal spirits.



Charlene, and her fellow investigators, made the spooky discovery in one of Derbyshire's most haunted buildings.

After streaming the session on Facebook, Charlene reviewed the footage and noticed it looked like something had been thrown in the air.

She adds that she, and her team of other investigators, did not expect such a haunting reaction to occur.

She added: “There was a fly going round us at the time, so when we initially heard a drop, we thought it was the fly that had flown into something.

“But it felt too strong to have been a fly, so on reviewing the footage you can see something comes in and is like thrown over.

“You hear a thud on the floor and it’s very loud. We finished off in there and had heard walking at the back of the room as well.

“We went upstairs and had a ball fly off the table as well, which is really quite rare to have that kind of activity in one night.

“It’s definitely one of the most haunted places we’ve ever investigated as a team, and I’ve been investigating for eight years.”

Charlene, from Nottingham, says that during the eight years she has been investigating paranormal activity, she has been spoken to by ghosts and has been hit by objects being thrown at her.

The team are now planning on going back to the hall to try and get some more footage of the paranormal activity that they witnessed.

“We do this as a hobby and it’s kind of stemmed from having experiences when we were younger, and then acting on that to try and see more.

“It kind of intrigues us more than scares us.

“We’ll be going back to see if we can recreate it for one, and seeing if we can capture anything remotely similar.”
