Paranormal Research York
Who are we?
PRY are a team made up of experienced and professional paranormal investigators who are local or live in York and have come together to investigate predominantly in the city of York. We are your one-stop-shop for all things paranormal in York. Local to York, we are able to access a whole range of haunted locations in and around the city and research our findings to go with the legends that other teams may not be able to access.
York is one of the most haunted cities in Europe with roots in Iron Age settlements among the oak forests and access to a major river system. Because of this, Romans and Vikings used it as a major stronghold in the region and then as time progressed it became a sought after city by Kings and Queens of England and Scotland. Add to that the wealth of old and modern places to visit and the spirits connected to the city such as Dick Turpin and Guy Fawkes, it is little wonder that we believe York offers so much to the paranormal world.
The Team ethics
As a team we never knowingly offer false evidence. We have a mix of believers and non-believers in the team and we will always seek the logical explanation first. We have a team Medium who is at every investigation, the Medium uses various skills and techniques to communicate with spirit with some excellent results. We research every aspect of the place we investigate and are able to build complex time lines with real evidence of what or who was around that place and will provide detailed reports to our hosts or clients who use our services.
Clare Louise Bryant
Founder, Researcher and Events Manager
I am Clare and I am the Founder of Paranormal Research York, affectionately known as PRY. I am York born and bred and I have been involved in paranormal teams in York and Yorkshire for many years and the paranormal world fascinates me. I am the Events Manager and Researcher and I have a deep passion for history, especially local history and this involves looking for new venues to investigate and then cross-referencing facts from several sources for our events. I have had a lot of self-proof of paranormal activity, but I will always look for the obvious answers first and fitting in with the team ethos, I will never fake any activity to succeed. I will mostly be found with my head in a book or at one of York’s many libraries, researching!
Business Development Manager and Team Medium
I have been involved with spirit for most of my life with a strong interest in the paranormal. I am experienced as a Medium working in paranormal teams using my skills and experience to help guests have the best experience they can while they are with us. I believe that spirits have a story to tell and at PRY we give them that voice through various means. As a team, we understand that we are unlikely to provide definitive proof of life after death to the world; however, we will never stop trying. I also believe that people find their own proof and that is well worth what we do! As a team I also believe that we need to be accurate and truthful in everything we do. I would never want to fake anything to succeed.
Always the tec guy sceptic, until 8 years into my journey, sat alone in the dark, 2am Chillingham Castle, up walks this apparition and stands watching me, full on believer since. My new mission is to help others to believe, if not in ghosts but to experience the strange things happening around investigations. I am a guest investigator for PRY and will attend as many investigations as I can
Hey I’m Ange, team newbie. I got into paranormal investigating because as a child I experienced lots of strange things, which fuelled my interest. These days I’m still cynical about my experiences, but working as part of the investigation team we can together come some way in searching for the truth and debunking the rest as best we can
