Does anybody know of any hauntings (indoor or outdoor) in or around Oldham? I'd love to spend the night somewhere either joining an investigation or just going by myself. I'm interested in all sorts of mysterious stuff, old roman roads, haunted battlefields, ghost sighting locations, local myths etc.

 I'm an ex Breeze Hill pupil.  Lived on the boundary of Lees and Waterhead for over 20 years.  Still drink in the Waterhead Mill Bottom when back home.

God I had rough pint in the Gardeners last week.  When I asked them to change it, they changed the barrel then sat down to do a crossword, forgetting to replace the pint.  I think I'll stick to the Bulls Head now:).

I don't know of any really recent cases in Oldham as I have not lived there for a long time now.  Are you new to investigating?

Yeah very new, as in 'not started yet' lol. I'm thinking of getting a metal detector, I've always been interested in history, roman times, ghosts, ufo's, mysteries etc & I'm going to actually do something with it now. Just been up to Castleshaw Fort for a mooch with the pooch, defo going to have a dig about up there.

It might be an idea to find a good group in the area to help you get into ghost investigating. I'm not sure that you would be allowed dig at Castleshaw, it is a site of archaeological interest.

Yeah I noticed earlier, you need permission to dig there. I've found where to ask though.
I've contacted a couple of groups I found on here :-) I've just bought a copy of 'Mystical Oldham', that might help me find some spooky locations :-)

You might want to consider joining a large organistaion such as ASSAP who could hlp you train to become an investigator and give you tips.
