The latest news from The Dorset Paranormal Research Team...



Recently, we had the opportunity to conduct background research at the Dorset County Museum in Dorchester.


We are currently working with the team ducumenting accounts and advising whenever the opportunity arises.


Click here to visit the Dorset County Museum website.

We are presently working in an advisory capacity with the volunteers at Nothe Fort in Weymouth, having commenced the Winter 2017 season of working with and looking after event teams that visit the fort.


Paranormal researcher, David Goulden also hosted the 2015 'Halloween Suppers' events including two nights of great food, paranormal discussion and a Q&A session.


We look forward to continued involvement with the team for many years to come.

The Ancient Ram Inn, Gloucestershire | Research

Recently some of our team were invited to break the Dorset border and spend the night at The Ancient Ram Inn, Wotton-under-Edge in Gloucestershire.


Rightfully described as a national treasure it is the archetypal spooky crooked house with all of the appropriate fixtures and fittings, that over the years have helped generate a folklore of its own. A location worthy of a lot more than just the odd thrilling night out.


We feel it deserves more focused and rational study into the paranormal claims that continue to surround and enhance its legend.


Maybe a dedicated period of research by The Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena or The Society for Psychical Research would be worthwhile in the future.
