Supernatural sites in the UK Corfe Castle

The UK Daily Star Online provided a look at some haunted locations around Britain. I also had the pleasure of visiting England and you can read about my encounters with the ghosts there in my book "Ghosts of England on a Medium's Vacation," available on Amazon.  Here's today's haunt:  
Corfe Castle
Towering over the Dorset countryside, the ruins of Corfe Castle casts a formidable shadow over the surrounding fields.
The castle dates back to the Norman era of English history and in the 60s it gained a spooky reputation.
Park and Resorts said the most recent sighting was in 1967 “when a local man reported that he had seen a woman in white in the village of Corfe”.
She is, of course, believed to be linked to the castle itself and legend goes the woman in white is the spirit of a female who betrayed the Royalist family to the Roundheads during the English Civil War.
You can read about MY encounters with some of England's ghosts in my book "GHOSTS OF ENGLAND ON A MEDIUM'S VACATION by Rob Gutro:

What happens when a medium goes on vacation? Can a medium simply switch off their ability at will? Well…not exactly. Rob Gutro is a medium/author/paranormal investigator and a scientist who has written 4 books about his encounters with human and animal ghosts and spirits. In this book, you will read about his experiences on two separate trips to the United Kingdom. England’s rich history and many epic battles have caused an over-abundance of residual emotional energy. Everywhere he traveled, he had a paranormal experience. He explored royal palaces and spent the night in haunted castles. He encountered the ghosts of historical figures including a queen, a prince, and a nobleman; and several ghosts even shared their pain of death experience with him. On one occasion, the doppelganger of a loved one provided directions when he became lost while driving in the countryside due to a malfunctioning GPS.
But not all of his encounters were of the human variety: there was also a very special visit from a canine ghost. This book is intended to be more than just a collection of personal ghost stories. In addition to relating my ghostly encounters, he has also included a short narrative history of the places where the experiences occurred. After all, knowing the history of a place is key to understanding why a ghost has decided to stay behind. So, join Rob as he relates his encounters with the ghosts of England. Rob has written 4 other books about the paranormal, two about people (Ghosts and Spirits and Lessons Learned From Talking to the Dead) and 2 about pets (Pets and the Afterlife and Pets and the Afterlife 2). The books are available in paperback and e-book on

Haunted Trails #9 - Warm Springs Canyon Road, California

The Travel Channel covered haunted trails in the U.S. and this is the ninth installment!

Warm Springs Canyon Road, California

This extreme 16-mile hike in Death Valley National Park is not for the faint of heart, and not just because of extremely hot temperatures and abandoned homes along the route. Despite the pleasant-sounding name, Warm Springs Canyon Road leads to Barker Ranch—the former hideout of the infamous Manson Family. Charles Manson and his followers lived at the ranch for a period of time in the late ‘60s while on the run following the tragic Los Angeles murders of Sharon Tate and six others.

SECOND HAUNTED SPOT ON THE TRAIL - Manson and company was eventually captured at Barker, where he purportedly killed more people, although the bodies have never been found. A fire destroyed Barker Ranch in 2009, so now only the shell remains. Hikers who are brave enough are allowed to camp on the grounds, and some reported hearing screams, the feeling of being watched and smelling decomposing bodies.

BUFFALO, NY NEWS: Ghost Hunter Plunges 20 Feet in Paranormal Investigation Gone Wrong

As a paranormal investigator, the first rule of investigating anyplace is to get permission to enter. Abandoned places can be dangerous. There could be weak floors, asbestos, black mold, rats or crumbling walls to name a few things. In the case of this ghost investigator, they went to a place that they shouldn't have gone, and there was an accident.

Ghost hunt ends in fall through roof at Central Terminal 
 Matt Glynn, Buffalo News  August 1, 2021 

A ghost hunter was injured in a fall at the Central Terminal on Saturday night, July 31. 

Buffalo police said two individuals – a man and a woman – were ghost hunting without permission at the terminal when the 35-year-old Kenmore woman fell through a substation roof near the back of the property. She fell about 15 to 20 feet, police said.

Ferry-Fillmore District officers and other emergency personnel responded to a rescue call just after 10:30 p.m. The woman was transported by ambulance to Erie County Medical Center, where she was treated for multiple injuries. The man with her was not injured, police said.

Police said no charges have been filed in the incident.

The Central Terminal has drawn the attention of ghost hunters – for authorized visits – before. The "Ghost Hunters" TV series once broadcast a six-hour live program from the former train station, and the nonprofit which runs the building has hosted ghost tours.

Paranormal Question of the Day: Are Some Places likely to be more Haunted than others?

 Here's today's Paranormal question from Chris.

 Q:  I understand that running water and some characteristics will allow sprits and ghosts to manifest so not really thinking about those places,but, are some places more likely to be haunted than others? I understand haunting can take place anywhere but do ghosts tend to congregate?

A: Yes, running water provides a non-stop energy source that enables ghosts to be strong enough to communicate more often than usual.  - More commonly haunted places would be where battles or murders occurred, or where many people stayed, like hotels, hospitals or prisons. Chances are that there would be at least one person in those places that would opt to stay behind as a ghost.

Haunted Trails #7 - Norton Creek Trail, North Carolina

The Travel Channel covered haunted trails in the U.S. and this is the seventh installment!

Norton Creek Trail, North Carolina

While the Appalachian Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains is the most famous, and has its own share of creepy tales, the Norton Creek Trail is more notorious. Two legends are strongly associated with it: The first revolves around a settler killed by American Indians while searching for his lost daughter. On the plus side, he’s considered a benevolent spirit who helps guide lost hikers out of the woods. The other ghost isn’t so friendly. Cherokee legend warns about a witchy spirit aptly named Spearfinger, who lures children into the woods and eats their livers with her razor sharp finger. Oh, and did we mention that there’s a large number of cemeteries near Fontana Lake, which is also along Norton Creek Trail?

In the news - Entire California ghost town wiped out by the Dixie Fire

 Although not paranormal, investigators often like to visit abandoned towns in the U.S. West, known as Ghost Towns. In the news today, however, one ghost town in California was consumed by fire. Here's the story from the San Francisco Gate news.

Entire California ghost town wiped out by the Dixie Fire

San Francisco Gate News, Aug. 5, 2021

A historic Northern California ghost town in the Sierra foothills has been decimated by the giant, still-raging Dixie Fire.

The state-designated historical landmark has been abandoned now for half a century, and last week the 250,000-acre Dixie Fire left its historic buildings in ashes, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. (SFGATE and the San Francisco Chronicle are both owned by Hearst but operate independently of each other).

Among the casualties is the Kellogg House that was lived in until the 1970s. Built in 1852 with lumber from the sawmill at Rich Bar, the property sat above the roaring gold camp in the Feather River Canyon. Gone too is the mining outpost, the remaining homesteads and the historic cemetery.

While the stories told by miners of an actual lake of gold were apocryphal, the town was a hugely successful during its boom in the 1850s. As with so many California gold towns, along with the riches came the vice and criminality. The Feather River Bulletin once wrote of the riotous scene there in 1850: "Upon hearing of the new strike at Rich Bar those in the Middle Fork area packed up their shirts, trousers, pans and cups and struggled northwest across the mountains in search of a dream.

"They swarmed over the Sierra mountains by the thousands, every color and nationality, and every sort of character, from low-down, thieving, conniving scallywags; to prim, proper, upstanding citizens."

According to the local museum, the town reportedly pulled $23 million in gold out of the ground and river in its first few decades, before its inevitable decline when the gold ran dry.

Last year, new owners Ivan Coffman and Kurt Brock purchased the 1,200-square-foot Kellogg House and had plans to restore it and even mine again. The fire has left them with an unsure future, and they are still currently under evacuation orders, reports the Chronicle.

The Dixie Fire began July 13, likely due to a tree falling on PG&E power lines near the town of Paradise (which was destroyed in 2018 in the Camp Fire, also ignited by a faulty PG&E transmission line). It has burned 274,139 acres and is currently 35% contained, according to Cal Fire.
