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.
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?..

Event Review / Spoiler!
Where to start, where to start?!
What an absolute pleasure last nights investigation was! To be able to spend the evening in what felt like a tardis of Victorian history all laid out over several areas, police cells, corridors, the old bedrooms and former fire station canteen….the list goes on! – it was the building that kept on giving! Perfect for splitting off into isolated zones, each vigil taking on a different feel and providing a variety of evidence – our time here flew and the team left all agreeing we need to return!!
Highlights of the evening:
Spending time in the old 1900’s police cells was naturally going to form part of our investigation and in this area, including the former stable block beyond, guests took part in an equipment vigil.
During one vigil, a couple of our devices started to indicate shifts in temperature and movement which prompted an EVP session. A faint “help” was heard on playback so in a later question, we asked again if they wanted help. The EVP we got in response was indeed a further “help” but much louder and clearer than the first. Down in the end cell, a further EVP said “help him”. When we asked for the number of the cell, we received the response “seven” (the only numbered response throughout the session) and on saying goodbye, we heard a “thank you very much”! All this from a cell that apparently reports a negative energy….all food for thought!
Ouija board sessions for 2 out of the 3 groups were similar in as much as the glass moved quite strongly but the information given didn’t make much sense. A child spirit was picked up in the Police Station office area and on the ground floor fire station, a male spirit who spelt the word “crew” came through.
Upstairs above the fire station, guests were free to roam the old fire brigades former communal areas (old function/ dining room) as well as the upper level which had several rooms off, all once bedrooms for the Fire Brigade before they moved out in 1924. Whilst some guests didnt experience much goings on, for others, growls were heard as well as K2 meters going off on command. Whilst the level of activity varied throughout this zone and much was about being in the right place at the right time, it was nevertheless a challenge to spend time alone up there!
On behalf of all of the team, thank you to all the guests who came out last night to spend a haunted evening with us in this cracking Sheffield location. We hope you all enjoyed your time here as much as we did and all got home safely.
Thank you for the feedback!
