Box Pusher

Location: Telford - Wellington Indoor Market
Type: Poltergeist
Date / Time: May 2013
Further Comments: CCTV footage caught a pile of boxes falling unaided, some declaring that the supernatural was at work (and others declaring they were just poorly stacked).


 
 


Crockery goes Crash

Location: Wem - The Woods farm
Type: Poltergeist
Date / Time: 1883
Further Comments: Plates would throw themselves onto the floor, loaves of bread 'attacked' people, and, most disturbingly, the baby's cradle caught fire, with the infant in it.


 
 


Little Girl

Location: Wem - Town Hall
Type: Other
Date / Time: 1995
Further Comments: Photographed by Tony O'Rahilly during the fire that engulfed the town hall, the girl can be seen in the flames - an impossible position for a living person. Months after the blaze, builders continued to report a ghostly figure on the site. However, an old postcard came to light in 2010 which shows a young girl identical to the ghost in the photo, proving that the original photograph was a composite image (ie hoax).


 
 


Trapped Bandits

Location: Wenlock Edge - Ippikin's Rock
Type: Legend
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: A rockslide here trapped a band of brigands and their loot in a cave. If you stand on the rocks holding them and say 'Ippikin, Ippikin, keep away with your long chin', the leader of the gang appears and tries to kill you.


 
 


Pianist

Location: Whitchurch - Civic Centre
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Twentieth century
Further Comments: The phantom notes of a piano were heard for several nights, drifting from the unmanned civic centre. An investigation failed to find the cause of the noise.


 
 


Voice of a Girl

Location: Whitchurch - Old Eagles
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: 17 June 2005
Further Comments: While the building was being investigated by a paranormal group, the voice of a young girl in the main cellar was recorded on video via CCTV.


 
 


Small Children

Location: Whittington - Whittington Castle
Type: Haunting Manifestation
Date / Time: Unknown
Further Comments: Seen peaking out from the gatehouse windows, these children are never found when looked for.
