The Infamous Pontefract Poltergeist House

Join Haunted rooms for an overnight ghost hunt at the home of Europe’s most famous poltergeist.

From the outside, number 30 East Drive in Pontefract looks like any other house on the street. It is a modest 3-bedroom semi-detached council house circa the 1950s. However, it has a sinister side hiding within.

This house is the domain of a somewhat evil entity who has come to be known affectionately as ‘Fred’ or sometimes ‘The Black Monk’ or the Pontefract poltergeist. He is believed to be the most violent poltergeist in Europe, and he has been making his presence known for more than fifty years!

What to Bring

What to Bring?

You’re welcome to bring your own equipment, though we will be providing paranormal equipment to use.

Sleeping: If you are choosing to sleep, you will need to bring your own camp beds and bedding with you.

The investigation will be in darkness so please bring a torch with you.

Although snacks and drinks are provided, you’re welcome to bring your own. There are also facilities to make both hot and cold drinks, which are provided also.

And of course, bring your phone/camera with you, the more pictures we have the better chance we have of capturing something!

Other than that, just yourself and an open mind!

What to Expect

What to Expect

On your ghost hunt with Haunted Rooms, you will have full exclusive access to this location.

Together with our friendly team of investigators, you will join others on structured vigils, where you’ll have the chance to use some paranormal equipment and join in on group vigils such as Ouija board sessions, and seance.

Our event starts at 9.00 pm but you can arrive at the earliest 8.30 pm. Structured investigations will end around 2 am, at which point you will have the opportunity to investigate this location on your own using the techniques and information you have been provided with.

The sleepover option is included with your booking, so it’s recommended you bring your own bedding and camp beds with you.

You will have the chance to look around the home before the event to familiarise yourself with its layout.

Shortly before the event kicks off, we’ll run you through a quick induction and safety briefing, followed by a short talk and introduction from our team. You’ll then split into smaller groups with your family and/or friends if you’ve come together, and we’ll begin our vigils for the night!

If you have your own paranormal equipment we encourage you to bring it, if not we can provide them free of charge.

Snacks, refreshments, and treats will be provided at intervals throughout the night, and we’ll have facilities to make hot and cold drinks too.

We do endeavour to have mediums and sensitives with us for every event, although circumstances out of our control can sometimes prevent this. Anybody that has sensitive abilities we encourage you to come forward, as it only increases the energy and enjoyment for all in attendance.

To get the most from the evening we encourage you to try your hand at as many things as you can, and if you’re feeling particularly brave you should give a lone vigil a try, as well as joining in with our table tipping experiments as we try to commune with the spirits and ghosts of the building.
