Hi guys.  I have been away researching in Wales for the last week but I would like to welcome all our newest members to the website and thank you all for posting on the forum.  It may take me a while to get up to date with the posts and that will have to wait until I am more sober :).

Research: This is Ian's

Research: This is Ian's Euphemism for spending the week in as many Welsh pubs as possible - preferably haunted of course. :-) I could make a joke about spirits, however.....Did you get any good photos Ian?

Dan, you know me so well

Dan, you know me so well :)  Yes I got loads of photographs..........of haunted pubs :).  I have been collecting stories and histories from around Snowdonia but I was ventured out into Powys, Shropshire and got to visit some of my favourite locations like Devils Bridge.  I'll be sticking a few bits and pieces up each week.

Thanks

 I love this site. However it has made me realise how little I know. Not being from Britain doesn't help though. 

Wow,how do I get a job like yours? Sounds great.

Speaking of haunted pubs, I

Speaking of haunted pubs, I heard a while back that The Bear Inn at Bisley, Gloucester had a couple of stories attached to it. I don't know any details and there's nothing on their website sadly, so it could just be hear-say. Still, here's the link if you're interested, http://www.bisleybear.co.uk/content/view/22/44/

Hi Someonestoleshell,

Hi Someonestoleshell, I wish this was my day job :)  Maybe one day I will be able to do this full time.  Maybe make the site into a book.

Thanks for the heads up about the Bisley Bear, I'll see what I can find out.  This website is an ever growing database, I doubt we'll ever get every ghost, UFO, legend etc on the site, but we'll keep trying.

You should make a CDrom like

You should make a CDrom like the Megalithic Portal site has.  Searchable database, pic and maps where appropriate.  They charge less for people upgrading to the latest version.

Hi Seannachaidh, welcome to

Hi Seannachaidh, welcome to Mysterious Britain & Ireland and thank you for posting.  A CDrom is a good idea and one I think look into more closely.  It would make a great addition to a book as well.
