There's a ghost in the house - spooky sightings in Redditch go online

Redditch Editorial 7th Feb, 2019   0

GHOSTS walking through the town centre, spirits captured outside the old Cafe Mambo – Clem Dallaway has been gathering evidence of supernatural activity in Redditch for years.

And now the Abbeydale resident is looking to make a documentary series on the spooky happenings around the town.

“I have been running a website for a long time but this year I thought I’d do something a bit different,” said the 42-year-old.

“With the help of my wife Sam, who will be narrating, I will be uploading a YouTube video every few weeks.”

Each video, with a length of around ten minutes, will be based on a particular area in Redditch known by some for its paranormal activity.

“Most ghost sightings by locals occur in the town centre, Ipsley or Woodrow,” said Clem.

“It will be interesting to see people’s reactions when we look into the history of it all.”

A frequent sighting according to Clem is that of ghostly monks walking around the town centre and an old lady near the Ecumenical Centre on Evesham Walk.

“The Congregational Church was demolished in the 70s to make way for the Kingfisher Shopping Centre.

“It had a cemetery outside and that’s why some people believe ghosts still roam the area.”

The first episode of his YouTube series will be ‘Ipsley’ and will include four different ghost stories from the area.

You can watch it this weekend by following his YouTube channel ‘Ghosts of Redditch’.
