The museum is now home to many old fire engines and police memorabillia so it is no surprise with so many artifacts that some spirits may still be still attached to them.
Artefacts housed here include items from the devastation of the twin towers in New York.
The most famous spirit residing at this amazing haunted place, is that of a former prisoner called Cain, on most ghost hunts Cain usually enjoys communicating with the living but he is known to have a more sinister side. On many occasions he has been known to throw the glass breaking it, during glass divination experiments on some ghost hunting nights.He is renowned for making his presence felt, especially to women, he makes it quite obvious he resents anyone daring to enter his cell.
On a previous visit we encountered in one vigil a group of ghost hunters were using a Frank's box, when they asked for the scanner to stop on 999, as they felt it appropriate considering their surroundings. The spirits of this building that is said to be rich in spectral shenanigans duly obliged, (a photo of the Franks box displaying 999 is on the photo gallery of the Simply Ghost Nights web site), not only once but twice this occurred to our startled and stunned ghost hunters.
Another paranormal phenomena occurred with the Franks box, when one of our intrepid ghost hunters said that she was going to sit down, the song by the band James, 'Sit down next to me', was heard from this ever more startling piece of ghost hunting equipment.
A full bodied apparition was seen walking at the bottom of the stairs, and when our ghost hunters went to investigate if it was a fellow ghost hunter, in the passing seconds when they arrived at the stairs there was no one in the vicinity what so ever.
Disembodied voices were heard in the cellars, and the upper floor too, table tipping and glass divination was experienced in the majority of vigils also, K2 spikes were witnessed on request in the cells after Ian one of the ghost hunters called out for them.
There is also the reports of an alleged demon... which has been spotted lurking in recent years sending chills through the visitors and staff alike.
