You've Tried the Rest....Now Investigate with the Best!
Back in 2001 the acclaimed paranormal investigator and researcher, David Scanlan, decided to establish the Hampshire Ghost Club after a life long interest in the paranormal.
Initially David wanted to join an already established local group but all he found was commercial groups that were more interested in taking peoples money and exposing them to some rather dubious alleged 'paranormal experiences'. So with this in mind he decided to set up a paranormal investigation and research society that would focus on the gathering of potential evidence, in a logical and scientific manner, that would prove or disprove that ghosts exist.
Over our time investigating the paranormal the Hampshire Ghost Club is pleased to have not strayed from their initial approach to capturing evidence & data in a logical and scientific fashion. We have had the priviledge of investigating some of the UK's most haunted venues, compiled analytical studies of exisiting data and conducted research not only into ghosts and haunted houses but also spiritualism, mediumship, Ouija Boards and Table Tilting. We have also assisted University students with media projects, research studies and broadcasting oppurtunities.
One of our proudest moments have been the investigations and open door policy instigated by David when he was resident at Wymering Manor. Because of the work undertaken by the Hampshire Ghost Club and the positive publicity the group created we have firmly put Wymering Manor on the Most Haunted House's Famous List which helped save this incredibly historic house from demolition.
We have featured in the media with appearances on Most Haunted, ITV Television, BBC Radio, Independant Radio, Meridian TV, Portsmouth TV, Net Talk Radio, Beyond Magazine, Hampshire Life Magazine, Paranormal Magazine and many many more publications.
All our investigators are volunteers and we investigate simply because we want to understand the often complex and confusing world of the paranormal. Our members come from a wide range of backgrounds and we welcome sceptics and believers alike. All we ask for is an open mind.
The Hampshire Ghost Club has come a long way in its history....long may it continue!
