Ghost Hunt Abandoned Mill Wigan


The Mill Ghost Hunt WIGAN

Join Haunted Evenings this Halloween at this new haunted discovery! Haunted Evenings were the very first company to investigate here in April 2017 so you will be one of the very first to be entering this sprawling 4 storey abandoned Victorian Mill in Wigan, Greater Manchester. With so many reports of paranormal activity, from full apparitions, strange shadows, mists and lights, to footsteps and a sense of being watched, we’ll be arming you with all the latest equipment, along side conducting more traditional vigils to see whether we can capture any of this evidence on the night.  An intense night of ghost hunting awaits but a fun  Halloween themed night to boot! What will you experience on your haunted evening?!

Reported Paranormal Activity at The Mill

Long hours and a lack of health and safety practices at The Mill tragically led to many accidents, some fatal – a likely attribute to the strange happenings that have been experienced here over the years. Even when still operated as a cotton mill, workers used to comment about ghosts being amongst them as they worked the machinery, with one machinist observing her cotton reels being moved without explanation in front of her. The workers used to joke that it was ghost children playing around the mill floors. In the 1950’s a man lost his life from a tragic accident. It has been written about that his apparition has been seen standing in doorways, whilst others have reported ghostly faces of children staring at them from the windows.  More recently, since the closure of The Mill, staff and security, along with local paranormal enthusiasts, have sighted strange lights and mists, with a sense of unease as they walk the building. Working conditions are likely the cause for all the paranormal activities that have been experienced here. What evidence will YOU capture?…
