People are always interested in haunted places so RiPA brings to you listings of haunted places.  Simples :)

Haunted England: A - L

Posted by Atticus on Tuesday, September 8, 2009 Under: UK

This listing is by no means exhaustive but here is a listing of some of the more well known haunted places in England:

RiPA have investigated many places across the UK.
But still we await that holy grail of evidence.
Listed below are some places that RiPA have done throughout the years and some that it would like to do.

A lot of alleged haunted places in the UK now tend to charge quite a hefty fee for letting you in. This is due to such programs as 'Most Haunted' and the like.
It is a pity for serious research groups too for not every organization and a backing fund to help this science.

So just bare that in mind when arranging an investigation.
Prices could range from £20 per head to £700 flat payment for 8 hrs. And as always, no ghost is guaranteed!
