Ghost hun­ters are back in town

Accrington Observer - - WILDLIFE -

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.”
