History of Wookey Hole Caves
20 miles from Bristol and Bath near to the Medieval town of Wells, lies Wookey Hole Caves, a series of limestone caverns on the edge of the Mendip Hills where the River Axe flows through. The caves are believed to date back approximately 45,000 years with archelogical evidence to suggest humans inhabited the caves in both the Stone and Iron Age. The full extent of the cave system is unknown but 25 chambers have so far been explored. Wookey Hole Caves was the first UK diving site in the 1930’s, around the same time as part of the cave system was opened as a public attraction.
History of Wookey Hole Mill
The 1086 Domesday Book records a (corn) Mill at Wookey Hole and by 1610, records show that this was then a paper-mill. The Victorian Mill that stands close to Wookey Hole Caves is now home to a museum which houses the old machinery that was once used to create paper out of old rags.
Ghosts | Paranormal Activity at Wookey Hole Caves
With so much history attached to Wookey Hole Caves, it is little wonder that with that, comes a mystery of the paranormal. With Pagan and Christian connections, the biggest legend associated with Wookey Hole Caves is that of a witch, aptly named the Wookey Witch. As legend goes, the witch was believed to have cursed a man from Glastonbury who later became a monk. The monk went in search of the witch, who was hiding in the dark crevises of the caves. In an attempt to break the curse, the monk splashed holy water on to the caves walls, which as legend goes, is believed to have then turned the witch into a stalagmite – which is present at the caves today. Whilst this most likely just an imaginative story, archaeologists did discover the full skeleton remains of a female which date back 1000 years.
The old Victorian Mill is said to be haunted by numerous former workers who sadly met a tragic end whilst operating the mill’s machinery. Visitors to Wookey have reported several ghostly sightings, one of a young girl seen in the basement and the mill grounds, another of an aggressive mentality unstable man has been sensed inside the mill.
The caves have also bore witness to tradegy. In 1949, the first ever cave diving death occured at Wookey Hole Caves. An experienced Diver known as Marriott lost contact with the line and sadly lost his life.

Ghost Hunt Wookey Hole Caves
Your Ghost Hunt Wookey Hole Caves event will start with a welcome introduction from the team before you will be split down into smaller groups ( all with your party) to explore the location for the night.
A small group vigil will take part in the Wookey Hole Caves, where we will attempt to gain contact with any spirits that still reside there. We will be using all the latest equipment, such as spirit boxes, EMF detectors, infrared cameras, thermal imaging cameras, temperature equipment and voice recorders. Guests will have the chance to use all this equipment as well as get involved with all the vigils. We may also mix things up with combining hi-tech equipment with more traditional methods.
Guests on the Ghost Hunt Wookey event will also get to investigate the old victorian papermill. Again, groups will be split down to ensure that the vigils are controlled which is better for capturing evidence.
Whilst we cannot guarantee what paranormal evidence will occur, what we can guarantee is that you will have a fun night in a fantastic location experiencing what it is like to be a ghost hunter. The team work hard to ensure everyone gets out what they want from the night, so whether this is your first time on a ghost hunt and just want to stand back and observe, or whether you want to take over and conduct your own sessions, the team will accommodate! This is your night and we want all our guests to feel comfortable, feel welcome and go away wanting more!
