Investigate paranormal activity and witchcraft at Creswell Crags

Posted onPosted on 19th Oct

Caves, witches and bones can be explored this Halloween at Creswell Crags, from Monday 24th to Sunday 30th October.

From Monday 24th to Friday 28th October there is pumpkin carving.

On Saturday 29th October visitors can join Derby Paranormal in Robin Hood’s Cave as they conduct a series of Paranormal Investigations.

A spokesman for the Crags said: “There have long been tales of ghostly apparitions on the Lake, of visitors feeling a presence, seeing unexplained lights or hearing noises deep in the cave.  Did local people think evil lurked in the cave, and try to keep it inside?  Did they think the cave was an entrance to the underworld?

“This Halloween we’ll see whether a paranormal investigation can shed any light on the mystery – or maybe raise even more questions.”

On Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October Witch Marks Tours will have an even spookier twist. Travel back to a time of superstition and witchcraft and discover the 17th Century secrets of Robin Hood Cave.

A guide will lead visitors into the gorge and around the cave, describing their world of plague, fear, and poverty, and explain why they carved protective symbols into the rock all those years ago.

During the Twilight Zone Witch Marks Tour a guide will delve deeper into the world of Witch Marks, and discover the horrors of the time and place that shaped their creation.

On Sunday 30th October a monthly Stone Age Storytime in ‘Mother Grundy’s Parlour’ will be a fun hour of Halloween stories!  Children aged 5 – 11 will be led on a special Halloween journey through story and picture books with resident Stone Age storyteller, Simon, in the cave of Mother Grundy’s Parlour.
