Join Haunted Evenings for a ghost hunt experience at this tucked away haunted site that is Wortley Top Forge near Sheffield in Yorkshire. Enjoy an evening of exploring the whole building which includes the old cottage and workshops….

Wortley Top Forge is an old favourite of ours and we’re thrilled to be heading back! From the roaring open fire that greets you in the main original downstairs cottage area to the old main forge area with its original iron-works (which is cold and incredibly eerie in the dark!), there’s plenty of room to split down into small groups to carry out an evening of paranormal investigating. The Blacksmith and Joiners workshop at the rear of the site stretches over two floors, separate from the main building and is an ideal area to carry out some lock down experiments, we’ve had  some intense moments in there!. The period cottage area has a strange feeling and a real sense of stepping back in time, the perfect place to have a go at more traditional vigils. In the main forge area, try your hand at using the hand held equipment to see what we can capture, last time we were left speechless at what occurred!.

History of Wortley Top Forge | Sheffield

Now an Industrial Museum, Wortley Top Forge is known to be the oldest surviving heavy Iron Forge in the world. This former finery forge and iron-works holds a history dating back to 1640. Many rooms here to investigate, including the main forge area, period cottage, ground and first floor, the Blacksmiths workshop, Joiners workshop and Foundry area. All these date back to the 16th and 17th Century. We will also explore the outside areas to see what we can unearth from the paranormal world.

Paranormal Activity at Wortley Top Forge

On our first investigation at Wortley Top Forge, we did not leave disappointed and it has left us wanting to go back!. We experienced plenty of paranormal activity here from strong EVP’s in the Forge Area with many of our equipment being triggered on command. Whilst conducting spirit board vigils, we picked up on a spirit who was connected to the building and was able to provide information that we were able to verify – love it when that happens!. The separate workshop area provided us with some strange activity and again was active. What will happen when we return?!…Have a go at using all the latest equipment and test your bravery by wandering off with the kit and sensing first hand, just what ghost hunting in a haunted location really feels like!

Event Review / Spoiler!

BLOG : JUNE 10th 2017

Another lovely evening last night investigating the Wortley Top Forge Museum nr Sheffield. Guests experienced activity in the old cottage where an audible groan was heard , temperature changes were picked up on command and a great response (again on command) through our movement detectors on the stairs in the old rear workshop. Voices captured on our recorders may not have been clear tonight but we believe we captured a “get out” and a “leave here”. During the ouija board session in the old cottage, guests picked up on a spirit connected to the building as well as a personal connection . The night was made so enjoyable by such an enthusiastic bunch of guests. It was lovely to meet you all and thank you for making it such a memorable night.

BLOG : MARCH 10th 2017

A big thank you to Friday nights guests and to the team who investigated the Wortley Top Forge Museum nr Sheffield. Here’s a summary of the haunted evening!……

10.03.17 – This was the teams 3rd visit to this hidden gem north of Sheffield. On arrival, guests were given a lowdown on the history attached to this building before it was lights out in all areas.

Trigger objects were set up in the old workshop and soon into vigil one, guests experienced some strange occurrences, with one guest siting what he believed was someone at the window, with another guest sensing a shadow in the same upstairs area. Whoever may have been in there appeared to set off our movement device (that we’d placed on the stairs) on command – with an EVP capture asking us to “Get Out”.

The Ouija board vigil was set upstairs and seemed fairly quiet until we conducted an EVP session and captured a voice which said “get out of my house”. We were, at the time, in the old cottage area of the location. It wasn’t until session 3 that activity occurred with the glass moving. At the same time, down in the oldest part of the location (The old Forge area), an absolutely phenomenal interaction occurred when 4 of our K2 devices were set off simultaneously, on and off, on command, for about 10 minutes. We believed we were making contact with several spirits and the energy in that session was very impressive. Of course we tried to debunk the EMF spikes and couldn’t. What we got was further validation from spirit when we asked “Are you effecting the green lights around us, yes or no?” and received an incredibly clear “Yes, a lot”! A great ending to another night here at Wortley Top Forge.
