On a haunting investigation
Haunted Burton - on film...
Those lovely people from the Burton Ghost Walks Organisation have produced a DVD "Haunted Burton". They claim that the town has over one hundred ghosts... Who would have known?
One person invited to take part in the making of the DVD was the well-known Spiritualist Medium Ian Doherty. This is his report of his involvement....
I was invited to the historic town of Burton with the view of partaking in the making of the DVD, Haunted Burton The Inside Story.
I had previously visited Burton as part of a paranormal team, and, as such, was very interested in having the opportunity to investigate further.
Burton has been embroiled in religious turmoil that has chequered its past; it is therefore no surprise to be confronted with the visage of religious persecution and hatred, along with religious intrigue against the king, in this case King James 1st.
I visited the Appleby, The Leopard Inn, the Royal Oak, the Coors Brewery and the Grail Court Hotel.
Filming occurred over several visits to Burton, always at a different location, the meeting place being the Grail Court Hotel, itself a haunted location, and from there to the night's filming location, though I was never privy to where this would be!
I can honestly say that the historic town of Burton is undoubtedly haunted, and in my opinion probably one of the most haunted towns in the country.
The DVD is available from the Burton Ghost Walks Organisation and East Staffs Tourism Office. For details - click on the weblinks to the right on this page
