Havering’s haunted past explored

Residents can find out about the spirits linked to Romford at a ghost walk.

Havering Museum in High Street, Romford is holding the walk on Tuesday October 23 starting off at the tourist office in South Street, Romford at 6.30pm.

On Thursday October 25, the museum’s project manager Ellen Owen will be sharing stories behind the museum’s current haunted Havering and beyond exhibition, which features Rainham Hall, Bretons Manor, Upminster Golf Club and three local pubs which do have a few ‘spooky’ stories and she explores people’s belief in angels.

The ghostly theme is set to continue on November 22 with a special military ghost talk at the museum.

The talk features RAF Hornchurch, current day activity across old UK airbases and frontline stories.

Ellen said “The Haunted Havering exhibition is excellent and not only looks at paranormal activity of today but Havering’s eccentrics and historic tales of witchcraft and folklore.

“The ghosts, spirits and angel section is very intriguing and thanks to Upminster Golf Club and Luke Norris, local medium, we have a great opportunity to explore the topic of ‘orbs’ which are balls of energy which spirits travel in. This is truly a very unique and creative exhibition.”

All tickets are �5.00 and can be obtained by telephoning 01708 766571 or e-mailing hmmarketing@btconnect.com. Tickets can also be brought direct from the museum Wednesday to Friday 12:00 – 17:00 and 11:00 to 17:00 on Saturdays.
