   The Marlborough: A Mystery Still Unsolved

 

The Marlborough was a Hugh was an iron-built two-decked merchant sailing ship which disappeared in 1890. The ship spent its time at sea travelling between Britain and New Zealand. The ship made many successful voyages in its time and mainly carried wool and frozen meat! A few months after the ship left port in New Zealand in January 1890 carrying its usual cargo and 33 crew members, the Marlborough failed to arrive at its destination in Britain and was reported missing!
At the time many people thought that the Marlborough had been sunk has she passed through cape horn which is a hot spot for ship sinking icebergs! 23 years after the ship was last seen a Singapore newspaper claim that the Marlborough had been discovered near cape horn!

It’s here were the creepy mystery starts as the Marlborough was found shipped wrecked on an extremely craggy island. When a crew of another ship boarded they were horrified at what they found! There was said to be around 20 skeletons on board, what was believed to be the capital was found under the wheel, one was found alone on the ship bridge, some were found by the ladder leading below the deck, 3 were found in the ships hatch way and the rest were found in the ships mess room.
The skeletons are what makes this mystery creepy and strange as there were no signs of foul play and why the skeleton was spread all over the ship makes it weirder. Investigators believed that they must of all died at around the same time as if this wasn’t the case the people that were alive at the time wouldn’t have just left the bodies there to decompose and they would have moved them. Also, because they were scattered around the ship it isn’t believed that they were gathered by an attacker and killed. It is also a mystery Why the captain that was believed to be the skeleton found under the wheel was there in the first place.
Another thing, if the ship had just run a ground surely the crew would have just left the ship and gone onto land to try and survive?! So, why they were all dead! And the ship was missing for so long is a truly creepy mystery! The Marlborough’s sister ship the Dunedin also went missing in the same year and to this day has never been found! Strange eh?

Waverly Hills: Americas Most Haunted Hospital

 

Waverly hills sanatorium located in Louisville, Kentucky, USA, and is regarded as one of the most haunted location in the USA! Featured on almost every ghost hunting program in the US, Waverly has been subject to extensive investigation and on many occasions unearthing what most would say is proof of the existence of the paranormal!

Waverly first opened its door in 1910 and housed thousands of patients suffering from tuberculosis. Originally built to house 40-50 patients, Waverly ended up housing up to 400 patients at a time. Waverly had its doors open for over 50 years but due to a new revolutionary antibiotic which drastically eliminated tuberculosis and the hospital closed in 1962! Waverly re-opened a year later, but closed in 1980 as officials found out evidence of horrendous patient neglect! No one knows exactly how many people died at Waverly, but it is said that at least 6000! People died.

The patients of Waverly would often suffer terribly and must go through horrible treatments; Such as, electroshock therapy, experimental surgery and other cruel and unethical procedures. One of the more well-known and truly tragic cases is that of Mary Lee, a nurse that treat people with tuberculosis and ended up contracting the disease herself. Mary got pregnant to one of the doctors and was unwed the shame of all this was too much for her and she took her own life, by hanging herself in room 502. Mary laid undiscovered for a long time.

With Waverly’s cruel and sinister past there is no wonder why it is supposed to be one of Americas most haunted locations! With dozens of photos, videos and audio recording that apparently capture the image of sound of something paranormal, not to mention the countless eyewitness accounts. There is no doubt that Waverly has a very sad past, but does that sadness still reside there in the form of restless spirits? What are your thoughts?

Built between 1698 and 1704, the furnace formed part of a trade syndicate in Yorkshire centered on the Spencers of Cannon Hall. It operated until 1741 with Charcoal as fuel.
It is thought that the furnace operated again around 1790, using coke fuel, to produce gun casting.
Rockley Furnace made Cast Iron in the eighteenth century, using ores mined in the same valley and charcoal from the surrounding woodlands
This furnace was probably built about 1700, for by 1704 there would appear to have been two furnaces in the valley, the other having been started in 1652, 500 metres to the west.
Ghost Sightings
GHOSTLY FIGURES,ORBS,WEIRD LIGHTS.. BLUE LIGHTS SEEN FROM THE OLD ENGINE TOWER. STRANGE SMELLS. MISTS
Interesting enough lee,phil and john did a ITC here here last year and during this session witches and witchcraft was mentioned.
The graffiti here is new, there is antichrist signs on at least two of the walls, we are unsure if witchcraft or some kind of rituals may be taking place here at present. Some graffiti is even in triangles and the furnace itself would make it perfect for a such a place as it is also triangular in shape. Trees also seem to be marked red leading to the actual furnace from the tower……this is something we will be looking more into
