Ghost hunters are back in town
PARANORMAL investigators have returned to Britain’s ‘most haunted high street’ after a series of spooky happenings.
The Lancashire Paranormal Investigation team examined Boutique 23 on Warner Street in Accrington and tried to communicate with spirits by using devices on the floor.
Donna Greenwood, who runs the shop, said they learned more about the history of the street and its former occupants.
She said: “They explained that Warner Street was really old and had extreme energy because of the triple lay lines that run under and outside the boutique.
“I did learn some interesting facts about the people that used to live on the street like ‘Preaching Polly’ who was a Methodist preacher and used to tell the drunken men to get home to their wives and children.
“There was ‘Oyster Jonny’ who sold oysters at the bottom of Warner Street and ‘Toffee Ben’ had a shop selling toffee and rock.
“I’m still a little sceptical but I did hear tapping, muffled noises and cold chills so if there are any spirits still here then I’m more than happy to share my boutique with them as long as I can’t see them.”
