A pair of paranormal investigators have opened up about their search for the supernatural in Surrey.
While most people spend evenings curled up on the sofa, Graham Grimes, 45, and his partner Hazel Richardson, 25, like to get out and about searching for the paranormal.
For the last year-and-a-half the couple, of Surrey Towers in Addlestone , have been testing their nerves by trying to find locations across the county where there is alleged evidence of ghosts.
“We had a couple of cameras and just decided to go out and do it,” said Graham, who works as a delivery driver when not ghost hunting.
“We’ve got digital cameras, we’ve got a spirit box, which is like a radio, and we’ve got Electromagnetic Field (EMF) meters.”
The ghost hunter added that on their travels around Surrey they have found strong evidence of ghosts in certain areas.
“The place that probably sticks out in the mind the most is Waverley Abbey in Farnham ,” Graham said. “We had things appearing on pictures, we had sensors going off. That was the strongest evidence we found.
“ Reigate Fort and Sandhills were also quite busy, as was Monks Walk, a path which runs between Thorpe Park.”
Far from being scared at the prospect of stumbling across their very own Surrey Haunting, Graham and Hazel, who works as an escort for children travelling to special needs schools, are positively excited when they find evidence of ghosts.
“It’s just a feeling you get, like somebody is watching us,” Graham said.
“We don’t really feel scared if we find something, it’s more excitement.”
The pair, who go ghost hunting with friends from time to time, have set up a Facebook group called Surrey Supernatural Investigations, where people can find out more about the supernatural and post their own investigations.
“We might go to a place once and then go back a couple of weeks later if we don’t find anything,” added Graham.
“People have actually suggested places for us to try.
“There was a place over near Basingstoke called The Holy Ghost Ruins, which was good.”
