Several accounts of paranormal activity have been reported here, including chilling disembodied voices throughout this historic site. On a previous visit, Haunted Evenings captured clear voices through the spirit box down in the tunnel as well as within one of the seven lime kilns that you can break off into. There’s been numerous reports from previous visitors stating a sense of uneasiness when they’ve entered certain areas of the main building. Shadow figures have also been sighted down in the workshop as well as items being displaced without explanation. With several areas to break off into, what will you experience when you head off into the darkness in small numbers?! Dare to join us on this one?!
Moira Furnace Museum
Moira Furnace was built in 1804 by the Earl of Moira, to take advantage of the local areas coal and iron. Now a protected Scheduled Monument, Moira Furnace is so well preserved due to it’s commercial failing in the 1800’s as a Furnace. Faults in it’s structural design meant the project was doomed from the start, as well as being an arduous place to work. Although the blast furnace that stands today was out of use by 1811, the site was still operational as an iron foundry for around 30 years. The building was converted into 4 small cottages for mine-workers in the 1820’s, with the last residents moving out in the 1970’s. It’s since been used by old rangers for the site and most recently, now the Moira Furnace Museum and Country Park.

Ghost Hunt Moira Furnace is an intriguing location, with adjacent spooky woodlands close by and outside lime kilns to investigate. The building that remains, consist of the imposing furnace stack and old bridge house building, which is now a museum.

Moira Furnace has gained a reputation as being haunted and the team did not leave disappointed. Fancy a stroll in the woods or time in the tunnel?

Event Review / Spoiler!
With so many areas inside and out for guests to break away off into to investigate, last nights Friday 13th was certainly an interesting night!
The main building area, usually out of bounds to the general public, produced some great EVP’s, with one Male spirit expressing that he was stood behind one of the guests. A later vigil in there, whilst carrying out a ouija board session, picked up on a couple of strong energies and the year 1938/9 was prevalent throughout the vigil, the spirit also took a shine to one of the Male guests!.
A “get out” was picked up down at the Lime Kilns with a few people, independently of each other, feeling the sensation of being pushed/swayed throughout separate vigils down there. The workshop at the top of the Furnace, showed signs of activity sporadically throughout the night, with temperature drops, movement devices triggering and a couple of indecipherable EVP’s, along with a strong smell of stale alcohol and flowers?!
Whilst some guests tried their hands at dowsing under the Furnace in the tunnel passageway, others tried communication techniques using a Ouija board in the Hastings area, once old cottages. A child was picked up in there on 2 vigils, who we believed had connections to the building.
We finished the night down in the forest area conducting a Human Pendulum and connected with a rather heavy energy who had been picked up earlier outside at the Lime Kilns.
Moira Furnace definitely is an interesting location and certainly warrants further investigation, it would be great to get to the bottom of who is up in the old Workshop!
Thank you to all the guests who were willing to get stuck in and helped bring forward the energy at Moira Furnace and to all the team who worked really hard to cover all the areas this location has to offer.
