We tried out the newly built chain pub (Farmhouse inns) Wingfield Farm just off the roundabout as you exit the Humber Bridge into Hessle.
They offer a carvery every day of the week for around a fiver, but on a Sunday it increases to around £8. Continue reading Food Review // Wingfield Farm

Simply Ghosts // Ghost Hunts & Paranormal Hunting Event at The Old Funeral Parlour

funeral.00_jpg_srzGhost Hunts & Paranormal Hunting Events at The Old Funeral Parlour, Hull, Humberside, 19th June 2015

This former Funeral Parlour is a must for any ghost hunter with a chequered history, the funeral parlour, embalming room and mortuary are still left have been left as they were for over 30 years. The Annison building has the look of the Amityville House of Horrors, so hopefully we will find some strange and wonderful things there.
The Old Annison building is reputedly said to be the most haunted building in Hull with a colourful past the building used to house the City of Hull Mounted Police before becoming a funeral parlour. The upstairs of the former funeral parlour includes the embalming room and mortuary all intact as they were when it closed over 30 years ago. Although the ground floor is now occupied by the Late Night Pharmacy whose staff say they are too terrified to venture upstairs alone.

Staff have informed us that they feel nervous when alone upstairs in the old funeral parlour and many are too frightened to go upstairs alone. With reported poltergeist activity and incarnate voices been heard the Annison building is not for the feint hearted.

It was said to be the last place the victim of an infamous Victorian murder was seen alive. Dubbed Hull’s most haunted place, the Annison building at the junction of Witham and Great Union Street was also the home of a funeral parlour for more than 100 years.

The building was reputed to be the last place tragic Mary Jane Langley was seen alive before her throat was slit in 1891 and her killer has never been found and the murder of Mary Jane is one of Hull’s greatest unsolved mysteries and her forlorn body was found dead in a ditch in Long Lane, Preston on July 30, 1891. It was said that a bungled  police investigation led to a line-up of infamous suspects including champion boxer John Rennard but no one was ever charged and the murder still remains one of Hull’s great unexplained mysteries.fp1

Another main suspect in the Mary Jane murder case was a certain Frederick Bailey Deeming, a monstrous and heinous serial criminal and murderer who had already murdered his first wife and four children before burying them under the floorboards of his house in Merseyside. Deeming who was serving time under one of his forty aliases in Hull jail was coincidentally released shortly before Mary Jane’s murder.

With a macabre history the former funeral parlour is a must for any brave ghost hunter.

take part in séances and use all the latest ghost hunting equipment such as K2 meters, Franks box, motion sensors, sound enhancers, infra red camera’s, and much more as we search for ghostly communication from the other side.

Tickets are priced at £39.00 per person and can be bought via the website or over the phone on 0843 289 1215.
