Join Paranormal Research York as we exclusively investigate this amazing 650 year old building on the edge of York’s famous Shambles.
We keep our guest list small, to ensure you experience all this venue has to offer, therefore we are limiting this event to only 8 tickets, so book early! (deposit options are available, see below for details).
12 Newgate – Our brand new venue is the quaint, historic and haunted location known fondly in York as Sandwitches Café. It stands in Newgate, a stones throw from the historic Shambles, Shambles Market and Patrick Pool.
Prominent since the Middle Ages, Newgate is in the heart of York. The building dates back to 1337 when Newgate was known as Le Newgate. It is reputed to be the second oldest house in York, built in the churchyard of St Sampson’s Church. Originally it formed part of a number of houses in a block that ran 130ft in length. The building has been a family home since it was built with the ground floor used as a shop.
Ghostly sightings – The owners have told us about some strange sightings within the building and they have told us the top floor is very haunted. The owners and staff have seen dark shapes move around the top floor, things have been moved when no-one is in the building and footsteps and noises are heard. During our initial investigations we connected with the spirit of a man who told us his passing was not peaceful, a woman who doesn’t like the building when it is busy and a few other spirits who happily made themselves known.
This building has never before been investigated. Join us as we start to unravel the stories that this 650 year old building is starting to tell. Spaces are limited.
