Has Joe Exotic been to Bedburn?

I do not know the answer to the above question but taking an educated guess here. I am guessing it is “no”. However, as lockdown insanity sets in, I have taken some time to dust off some old case files, update reports and get them out there in internet land. In the hope that people will come forward with similar experiences.

Monkeys, Buses and Frozen Chickens (making an ass out of you)

I’ve been struggling to get to sleep of late. More so than usual. So, there’s times I’m watching late night/early morning TV. Primetime for paranormal TV shows apparently. Ok I’ll admit it right off the bat. I’ve been watching them. So sue me. Better than infomercials about mattresses and kitchen appliances. Marginally…

Welcome back to OWNE Online (May 2020)

On the 26th April 2003, I found myself driving up the A1 in Northumberland, heading for my first ghost investigation. I’d had an interest in oddities and ‘things that go bump in the night’ since my teens, but after that first investigation at Chillingham Castle with UK Ghost Investigators, I was hooked. In May of that same year the first incarnation of the Otherworld North East website went online… and now, 17 years later this new version is hitting the Interweb.

been put forward to explain the experience for over 100 years. This article will briefly look
at the definition of déjà vu and some background. We will look at some of the more
paranormal explanations before moving to some more scientific explanations.

Long Exposure Photography

This article deals with digital long exposure photography: put simply, this process takes place by the camera taking the photograph over a long (relatively) period of time. If objects remain stationary during this period, they are produced as sharp, ‘solid’ images. If however, that object moves, it will become a transparent image. So how does this happen? Simple!

Solo Vigils: Have they any Value?

This type of investigative technique is usually associated with paranormal TV shows or commercial groups rather than with evidence based investigations. I propose the solo vigil is too fraught with methodological flaws to be considered a valid data collection technique. There are two main issues from an investigative perspective, one psychological and one methodological.

The Hexham Heads

The Hexham Heads

Hexham is a market town in Northumberland with a rich and varied history spanning several millennia. The legend of the Hexham heads began in 1972 when two young boys from the Robson family were playing in their garden and dug up two ancient artefacts: small stone heads about the size of small orange.

Why correlation is not causation, and why it matters.

It has often been reported on investigations that certain events or measurements seem to happen in conjunction with haunting type experiences or at locations where these experiences are said to occur. A change in EMF readings, temperature drops, seemingly whispered voices, knocks, bangs and a feeling of being touched are commonly reported. Additionally, it is also common to research the history related to the location. This becomes especially salient if it reveals tragedy or deaths during its habitation or occupation.
