History of Sheffield’s Fire & Police Museum
The building, that now houses the newly appointed National Emergency services Museum ( national status achieved 2014), had stood derelict for years and was built for the Victorian Police Fire Brigade in September 1900. The building was used for both functions until 1929 when the Fire Brigade relocated. During Word War II, the police cells were reconfigured to enlarge them enough to create a secure location for the Police forces telecommunication system. From 1965-1980 the building stood empty after the Police force also relocated. The building became derelict, with broken windows and left in a horrid state, until the building was acquired by firefighters from South Yorkshire who used the building to display artifacts from the services history. The Museum opened its doors to the public in 1983.
Paranormal Activity at Sheffield’s Haunted Museum
Plenty of paranormal activity has been reported here at the Fire & Police Museum and Haunted Evenings fancy taking all their extensive paranormal equipment with a load of budding ghost hunters to investigate for themselves what actual haunted happenings occur here. It’s been recorded that ghostly sightings have occured throughout the building, hotspots allegedly are the bottom of the stairs where a full bodied apparition was seen as well as voices heard in the cellars and upstairs rooms. With so many artefacts housed in the museum, its highly likely that spirits haunting the building are attached to memorabilia that is displayed here. It’s also been reported that a strong negative spirit still resides in the building. What will we find when we investgate here?..
