What gives Cambridge such a special place in the study of the paranormal? One of the most significant factors is that the Society for Psychical Research originated here. The SPR is Britain's leading organisation for research into the paranormal. The Society was founded in 1882 and its first President was Henry Sidgwick, Professor of Moral Philosophy at Trinity College. Sidgwick's principal colleagues in the SPR were Frederick William Henry Myers and Edmund Gurney, other Fellows of Trinity. Another factor is that Cambridge University itself is an extremely haunted location with phenomena reported from any number of colleges including : Girton, Sidney Sussex, Emmanuel, Corpus Christie and Peterhouse. Cambridge is also home to Abbey House, a mansion in Barnwell, which, at one time was regarded as the most haunted house in England, long before Essex's Borley Rectory claimed that particular accolade. 'Fenland', that vast area of reclaimed marshland in Cambridgeshire, is a most mysterious corner of England. Ely Cathedral is notorious for its ghostly monks and Oliver Cromwell's former home in Ely has regularly featured in the press with its stories of the unexplained. Wicken Fen is well known - for its spectral black dog. Wisbech, capital of the Fens, has featured in a well-documented investigation into poltergeist activity, at Hannath Hall. Peterborough Museum continues to fascinate paranormal researchers and it is thought by some to be the most active contemporary haunted site in the entire county. A must have for anyone with an interest in the paranormal.
