Brookes Paranormal is a family Paranormal Team based in Nottingham, that delves into Britain’s historical past and investigates

Britain’s most haunted locations, in search of the afterlife.

We’ve been interested in the Paranormal field for well over a decade, ever since Most Haunted hit our screens back in 2002. Whether you love them or hate them, it’s what got us into the Paranormal. We began investigating for ourselves over a year ago, in October of 2016. Since then, we’ve experienced plenty of unexplained phenomena and have learned so much about communicating and collecting evidence of the paranormal. We started collecting our own equipment around April 2017 and have since gone on to own a variety of EMF meters, ITC instruments, Night Vision Camcorders and more. In June 2017, we started documenting our investigations and made episodic-like videos for our family and followers to watch and discuss. As of December 2017, Brookes Paranormal announced that we will be hosting our own public ghost hunts (Non-Profit Organization) throughout 2018, and possibly into the future. We have numerous events happening in 2018, including a Halloween Night Special at an old medieval pub. Currently we have investigated over 25 locations and will continue to investigate more locations as we progress onward. Who knows, we might be investigating with you.

Energy can neither be created nor destroyed, so where does it go when we die? There are more things in this Heaven and Earth, than we can possibly imagine in our philosophy.

fort widley ghost hunting hunt paranormal investigation


It is in these these underground chambers at Fort Widley that most of the paranormal activity is said to have been experienced.

Ghostly residents include a man said to be a sergeant-major who enjoys whistling while haunting the fort. The old sergeants’ mess is reported to be a very intimidating area to visit now.

The keep of the fort is another area where there have been reports of ghostly footsteps and bangings are often heard. These are said to be made by a former prisoner, or possibly a prison guard.

There are reports of the spirit of a little boy haunting the tunnels that run deep beneath the fort. It is said that he was a drummer and was being pursued along the parade ground by a superior officer, having been disobedient, and fell to his death down the spiral staircase.

Rapid footsteps have been heard running along the tunnels and, apparently, he often plays games.

Ghost hunters have detected a very dominant male spirit and say they feel a sense of foreboding when he approaches. He has been sighted walking with a lantern and peering over people as a 7ft (2.13m) tall dark shadow.

A female spirit is said to be the wife of one of the married couples that resided at the fort or one of the prostitutes that came up to the fort to cater for the male occupants.

The story says she was murdered there and her tormented spirit is always trying to flee her aggressor. It is also said that she looks after the spirits of the children found within the tunnels.


Thanks to for providing the following footage taken using a camcorder an infrared setup from our ghost hunting store,

Filming at night in tunnels is very challenging as light dissipates into the infinite darkness of the tunnel.  Positioning the IR illuminator to get the best footage is essential, so we always suggest aiming the IR uo a little or to the side so that the light bounces off the tunnel walls.

This clip is part of a 20 minute video taken by Paranormal Pastimes with an IR camera from Whilst hearing the children’s voices two of the team searched the tunnels and above ground but could find no one.
