Back in the mid 90s, one of the first ghost hunting groups I joined wanted to investigate this park that was believed to be the most haunted place in the city. There were stories told for decades of ghosts, moving shadows, strange lights, and other unearthly events occurring. The nights we spent there yielded nothing, but taught the valuable lesson of patience as the paranormal will not be active at your convenience. There are a few locations on the planet where the forces of the supernatural are said to never stop occurring and each night becomes a terror. In the second installment of the most haunted places on earth series, we look into the Ancient Ram Inn.

In the village, of Wotton-under-Eedge, Gloucestershire, UK, lays the Bed and Breakfast the Ancient Ram Inn. The building is believed to be built in the 1150, once owned by the St. Mary's Church to serve has the priest's residence. The property has gone through many hands, but is currently privately own by Mr. Humphries who purchase the place back in 1968. The Ancient Ram Inn has been dubbed the most haunted building in the UK and in the world. If the nightly paranormal activity don't scare you then its history should.

The building has been claimed to be built on an ancient Pagan burial ground which remains me of a few of those haunted stories in the US that start with native burial site. The history becomes even darker once learning of the legends surrounding the Ancient Ram Inn. Tales of past inhabitants murdered in their own beds, a witch that was burnt at the stake and rituals of dark magic performed. Human sacrifice and Devil worship are believed to had happened in the past as Mr. Humphries found skeleton remains and daggers within his home.

Since the building became a Bed and Breakfast, many reported of paranormal activity. Guests claiming be awaken at night by unearthly screams of women or children crying. Accounts given of seeing shadowy figures, orbs appearing, and the apparitions of knights and monks along. There are allegations of individuals to been pushed, hit or pulled out their beds by unseen forces causing a few incidents of guests running off terrorized in the middle of the night. The owner says he had similar experiences since taking ownership of the inn and to this day is still assaulted by those entities.

Over the past two decades many paranormal groups have come to Ancient Ram Inn to investigate the supernatural inhabiting the place. Many had claimed to capture EVPs of tormented ghosts, filmed moving orbs, communicated with the spirits and warned of the presence of demonic forces. Also, I would like to mention skeptics have too spent the night at the inn and found nothing paranormal about it. They alleged that all paranormal claims are made up to stir up business. Haunted or hoax, determine that for yourself by spending night at the Ancient Ram Inn.

In every city, there is a place that local residents have come to known of. Whether its home, office, abandon building or a park everyone has heard the rumors of it being haunted. The story begins with a murder, suicide or some tragic death then decades later tales circulated of the paranormal activity within the area. Some would believe, while others would scoff but everyone knows of the place. In a three part series, I wish to share the stories of several locations on earth whose haunted history has now become global known by first starting with Poveglia Island.

Poveglia is small 17 acre island located in the Venetian Lagoon between the cities of Venice and Lido in northern Italy. In the past few decades the island has taken upon the reputation of being one of the most haunted locations on earth. Poveglia holds may tales of paranormal activity occurring going back for centuries. Local residents refuse to set foot on the island believing they would be cursed by those haunting it.

History of Povelgia is a dark one surrounded in death. There are beliefs that the Romans had used it to isolate victims of the plague and the mental ill. The first recorded settlement of the island was in 460 AD of people fleeing the invading barbarians on the main land. Over the centuries, Poveglian was the scene for many battles as people sought to raid or control it. During the Middle Ages, the island was designated as a quarantine area and burial site for those who contracted the Black Death.

Over the next few centuries, Poveglia served as a fort, storage of shipment good s and continued as an isolating station for those infected with the plague. In the 1920s, the island was setup as a hospital for the mentally ill and elderly. Soon, stories started to emerge of patients encountering ghosts along with accounts of being possessed. There is a legend of doctor who conducted medical experiments on the hospital's residents that was driven insane by the spirits to committing suicide. In 1968, the facility was closed and abandoned.

Today the island has been deemed as one of the most haunted places on the planet. Historical researchers estimate more than 100,000 died on Povelgia in its history and many of those souls are believed still reside there. Locals avoid going onto the island along with fishermen steer clear of its waters has a few had caught human remains in their nets. The few paranormal investigators that braved Povelgia had reported encountering alot paranormal activity with calms of being attack by unseen forces. In 2014, the Italian government sold the island to developer in hopes the island could be made into a resort. Currently, rumors on the internet have said that the workers sent to survey the island had an experience and refuse to return.

While Jaxerback I not going to argue with you on the existence of demons or paranormal as I know first hnad experience is required to changes one mind. It funny as at one time I had such the skeptical view of the world till past events shattered it. Based off your statement on this site I going to assume your experience with anything paranormal has been limited or none or maybe even ignored. Just hope those views last you for life as there are elements in this world some individuals should never become aware of.

You could rename it or reclassify it but wouldn't change what it is. A demon or negative energy you will still have a supernatural entity wanting to hurt you.

In every society and culture from around the world, there is a legend of a supernatural dog known as the hellhound. The creature is described to be a large canine with dark black fur, razor sharp teeth and glowing red eyes along with possessing the ability to appear and vanish in a blink of an eye. In some legends the hellhound is said to be from the underworld guarding graveyards and entry ways to the world of the dead. While in other folklore, these dogs hunted down the souls of the condemned and why many believed that to see or hear one is a bad omen as death would follow. Over the years, I have read many of these tales about hellhounds and there is one I wish to tell which takes place during World War one.

In 1914, British and German forces would engage what would be known as the Battle of Mons. Both sides suffered heavy causalities as neither could gain ground in the battlefield it led into trench warfare. The British and Germans over the next few years would engage each other with artillery, machine guns, snipers and even to hand to hand. The area between the two forces would become known as No Man's Land that was a barren wasteland. This is where the story of Hellhound of Mons was born. The tale was told by a Canadian war veteran, named F.J. Newhouse that was published by the Ada Evening News form Oklahoma and was later picked up by other news media.

The story begins in the early days of the Battle of Mons, when men of the London Fusiliers were ordered patrol the perimeter of no man's land. The patrol never returned and was assumed they had died by enemy fire until their bodies were discovered several days later. The corpses' necks were found to be ripped out as there were large teeth marks around the wounds. Some time later, soldiers reported hearing a horrifying howl one night making even the most battle harden men to shiver in fear.

As the war continues, men sent to patrol no man's land would be found to be attacked by a large creature. There were reports from the front line where British soldier would hear that unearthly howl follow by the cries and screams of terror of the Germans. The few troops on sentry duty gave accounts of witnessing a large, gray or black hound prowling in the shadows of no man's land. In some versions of this story captured German soldiers gave similar testimony of encountering some strange beast that was killing off their own man. This hound continued to terrorize the battlefield for two years until one day the attacks, sightings and howling all stopped.

In such stories one would expect the hellhound to be supernatural, but Newhouse gave a different origins to the creature. According to the war veteran, the canine was the result of a German military experiment to producing a living weapon. Newhouse mentioned that a German scientist by the name of Dr. Gottlieb Hochmuller had been searching in the mental asylums for a madman with a hatred for England. Once that person was found, the doctor surgically removed his brain and inserted into the skull of a large Siberian wolf. The creature was trained then released into no man's land to rain death and terror upon the British troops, yet the no one fore seen it would eventually turn on the Germans. Newhouse claims the experiment was outlined in papers written by Dr. Hochuller that were discovered after the war.

Now many believe the story of the Hound of Mons is a fabrication as there are no historical or military documents to back Hewhouse's account. Also, the medical technology to successfully remove a human brain and implanted into a different species doesn't exist today or even back then. The fact is dogs have been used in wars through out history. In World War one, canines were used as messengers and guard dogs. If the Hound of Mons was true, some theorize that soldiers many have been assaulted or killed by feral or German attack dogs. Just as most legends, this tale will continue to be told and remains a mystery.

I remember as a kid watching an old movie based on Jules Verne Journey to the Center of the Earth and became fascinated by the idea of another world existing within the world. As a grew, I discovered the concept of an underworld lies not only with works of fictions but also in conspiracy theories, religion and legends. Over the years I read what I could on this subject from the hollow earth theory to underground civilizations. There was this one interesting story I came across told more than 800 years ago about two green children who emerged from the earth that I would like to share.

The legends takes place back in the 12th century within the Suffolk village of Woolpit, England near Bury St. Edmunds. During harvest time, local villagers were working in the fields when two young children emerged from dug ditches to trap wolves. A boy and a girl, with green tinged skin, worn strange clothing made from unfamiliar material and spoke an unknown language. They were found wandered around bewildered by the villagers who aken the two back to town.

The children were taken to the house of local landowner Sir Richard de Calne where for several days they refused to eat anything that was brought. Eventually, the villagers discovered the two would eat the local harvested beans and would survive on this food for a few months to later acquired a taste for bread. The legends goes on to say as time passed on, the boy became greatly ill and died while the girl continue to grow into a young woman. She adjusted to life within the village, became baptized, learned the language and gradually her skin lost its green color. Some accounts of the myth tell that the woman taken the name of 'Agnes Barre' and married a royal official.

What made this legend extraordinary was the account the girl gave to her origins once she could be understood after learning the language. She told that her and the boy were brother and sister, and came from the land of Saint Martin. In her homeland there was no sun, but it was perpetual twilight. The people were also green as she and the brother. She recounts that one day they were looking after their father's livestock in the fields and stumbled across a cavern. There were the loud sound of bells which they decided to check out and entered into the cave where they wandered through the darkness for some time. Eventually they exited the cavern, but were immediately blinded by the glaring sunlight. After some time, they recovered and attempted to locate the mouth of the cave they exited, yet instead were found by the villagers.

The story was recorded by two 12th century chroniclers - Ralph of Coggestall , an abbot of a Cistercian monastery at Coggeshall and William of Newburgh an English historian and canon at the Augustinian Newburgh Priory. This legend continues to be told and referenced over the centuries even to this day. There have been many explanations given to solving the origins of green children of Woolpit. One thought that has been around since the legend was first told is the siblings were actually from an underground world. An alternative theory suggests the children were aliens from another planet or dimension. A more practical idea has been the two were orphan suffering from a disease causing a strange pigmentation in the skin. A simpler explanation could be the legend is nothing more than another fabricated fairy tale as other similar stories of green children later followed.
