Morpeth ghost hunting

THEY might believe in the Holy Ghost but members of the Morpeth Anglican Parish Council seem to have a different take on ghosts in their historic village.

In what has been described as “mean spirited” the council has asked Morpeth Ghost and History Tours owner Troy Murphie not to come onto the private grounds of St James’ Anglican Church – a request which has left his business dead and buried.

Mr Murphie, who has been conducting the tours for 2? years after receiving permission from the church’s former rector, said he was embarrassed and surprised when a person approached him during a Friday the 13th tour with 22 people and said he was no longer allowed on the property.

He said St James’ Church was an integral part of his tour where many of his clients had experienced paranormal activity and found the visit a tour highlight.

“Lately I have been getting the blame for things like people coming in on their own ghost hunting tours and hosting their own investigation nights in the local cemetery.”

      Sorry shared host, I should have added:
      It’s a pity when someone instigates a tour following the correct procedures then others jump on the bandwagon willy-nilly and spoil everything. This guy got the blame for their thoughtless behaviour.
