A team of ghost hunters who spent a week investigating paranormal activity in Chester have revealed details of some of their terrifying experiences.
The Haunted Hunts team spent much time in the city centre filming the second series of their Amazon Prime show The Haunted Hunts – Civitas Spirituum where they investigated several landmark locations in Chester and hearing from locals who have experienced bizarre encounters.
They set out to find the answer to one question: Is Chester truly the city of spirits?
The six part series sees them investigating sites like Ye Olde Kings Head pub where they attempt to gather evidence that the building is haunted, and are left amazed as they witness poltergeist activity in the room that a 17th century sword was discovered during a refurbishment of the building in the 1930s.
In another episode they visit the Pied Bull, Chester’s oldest coaching inn, where they encounter some of the strangest paranormal activity they have ever encountered, including capturing the disembodied voice of a young girl in the cellar.
And the team also meet a ‘mystery woman’ thought to be Chester Ghost Tour Guide Mary Ann Cameron, who tells them about paranormal activity on Chester’s historic Rows.
Using thermal imaging and full spectrum cameras in an attempt to document it, the team are ‘completely shocked’ to capture what they describe as ‘one of the best pieces of evidence we have ever captured on camera.’
Other haunts in the series include The George & Dragon pub, a trip to Rowton, which was the scene of one of the bloodiest battles of the English civil war, and the Dewa Roman Experience museum.
Lead investigator Danny Moss told CheshireLive: “We are a paranormal team best known for the Sky series ‘Search for the Truth’ and the first series of The Haunted Hunts – Behind the Shadows where we travel around the most haunted locations in the country.
“But we decided this series would be based on a different type of haunting. We wanted to charge it up and move away from the ‘darker’ side of things and focus on British historical cities – and there really is no better place than Chester – obviously this is one of the most haunted places in the UK.”
The Haunted Hunts – Civitas Spirituum is scheduled to air on Amazon Prime on Thursday, March 5.
