Revealed! Is your county one of the most haunted in Britain?

Revealed! Is your county one of the most haunted in Britain?


Posted 31st Oct 2018

In celebration of the spookiest night of the year, we take a look at the 11,900 reported cases of paranormal activity to find the most haunted counties in the UK…

 

Every county has a paranormal hotspot. It could be an old abandoned house, or a spooky hospital – either way the whole county knows about it! 

But how does your county's paranormal activity measure up to the rest of the UK? Well, as tonight marks the scariest night of the year, we thought we'd team up with Sell House Fast to celebrate everything that goes bump in the night and make our very own list of the UK's most haunted counties.

Coming in at the number one spot with 685 reports is Yorkshire. With accounts of trolls and headless highwaymen, Yorkshire is definitely the place to be tonight if you want a freaky sighting!

Next is Greater London, with 622 sightings, followed by Lancashire (548), Essex (479) and Sussex (427). However, if you want to grab a glimpse of monks, cursed giants, and bloody foot prints, then head to the Solent region!

Bad (or good!) news for the Isle of Wight residents though. With just 76 sightings reported, it looks like you'll have to head elsewhere for a chance of spotting some surreal scenes.
