Research and Investigation

Cryptozoology



North East Folklore is full with tales of mystery animals, unidentified species and even vanishing creatures whose presence or nature cannot be explained. OWNE would like to hear from people who have either witnessed or heard tales of a creature believed to be an animal but that could not be explained. Please get in touch if you have any details of such creatures and would like to share your experiences or have heard of tales involving a local mystery animal.

Spontaneous Cases



Alleged paranormal phenomena can often manifest without warning in day-to-day life. The root cause of these phenomena are more times than not purely mundane and often man-made, but with misinterpretation of events sometimes leading people to suspect  supernatural or paranormal intervention.

Look to the Skies



The North East of England has a rich history of Unidentified Flying Object sightings and all of the phenomena allegedly linked with visits from another world. If you have an experience or tale to share, please get in touch!

Archive Journals

OWNE currently have 5 archived journals available for download or online perusal on Joomag.



Reporting desk

The aim of the Reporting Desk is to collate people’s anomalous, spooky, strange, paranormal or unexplained experiences. This could be events or experiences which might fall under categories such as ghosts, poltergeists, psychic experiences, precognitive dreams, synchronicities, UFOs, cryptozoology, time slips, or indeed anything that is considered in a similar vein.The reporting desk can also be submitted as an anonymous report.

Anomalies explained

The Anomalies Explained project is the production of ongoing research and experimentation into photography, specifically the photographic anomalies often encountered during investigations and experiments.


Speaking to the Dead

This is one of our longest running projects which remarkably has yet to get any responses. The Speaking to the Dead Project aims to test (and publish the results of said test) spiritual mediums and those claiming similar abilities. We're also looking at testing equipment and items said to have the same ability. Are you a medium who would like to be tested?


Open Access Science and Paranormal Research

Excerpt: “If Open Access to research is beneficial, and raising standards when it comes to amateur paranormal investigation groups is also beneficial, then - In addition to other scientific bodies - should respected psychical or paranormal groups such as the Society for Psychical Research follow suit and make their previous and current research publicly available for anyone interested in learning from it?


This section deals with issues and information requests from the team directly to website readers. In here, we'll ask questions that we hope members of the public may be able to answer or contribute to. Website users may also request that we pose a question on this page.

OWNE undertake both desktop research and fieldwork into unexplained reports. We are under no obligation to publish our results on this website, and in fact have a duty of care in most circumstances to keep findings private.
