Welcome to OWNE

Otherworld North East (OWNE) is a not-for-profit investigation and research association whose aim is to collate and examine the physical evidence for ghosts and other alleged paranormal occurrences with an objective eye. OWNE is not an entertainment-based business, and do not run commercial ghost walks, nights or other similar events: we are not ghost-hunters, instead we simply seek to examine any physical evidence brought forward that is commonly perceived to belong to alleged supernatural phenomena.

Study area
Our main study area is the North East of England (County Durham, Tyne and Wear, Northumberland and Teesside) though we will consider investigating in other geographical areas (and have done in the past, including Cumbria, Edinburgh and North Wales).
Field of interest
Whilst the main focus of OWNE is to study alleged ghost sightings and associated phenomena, we do have a wide focus of interest that covers elements such as cryptozoology, parapsychology, exobiology, xenoarchaeology and more 'down to earth' disciplines such as archaeology, local history, psychology and physiology.

Safety first
There is a frightening propensity for many paranormal investigation groups to put themselves forward as pseudo-counsellors - more still that push supernatural or paranormal causes instead of physical ones. Type in 'symptoms of a haunting' into your favourite search engine to see some prime examples. When a person's physical or mental health is at risk, looking to paranormal agencies is dangerous and immoral. Why look to paranormal groups for aid? Safety first, seek real help!
