Requests for Information

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.

If you’d like to respond to any of these queries, please contact us.


Ghost App Reference Page

We’re looking to set up a page that will collate various resources regarding the many Ghost Apps people use to intentionally fake ghost photos. The aim is to provide a quick reference point to which anyone can contribute and use.  These can be existing sites or pages, where to find out about the latest releases, or indeed any useful information regarding them.


Big Cat Lookout

In June 2015, there was a further sighting of a big black cat, some four feet long by the A66. As such, OWNE have a request: has anyone had any sightings of any ‘odd’ creatures? This could be anything from a panther, to something more exotic. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any information of interest.


Haunted Airfields

One of our associates is looking to do some research into haunted airfields or locations related to military history.  If you have stories or locations locally or maybe nationally that may be of interest, please get in touch.


Hylton Castle

One of the region’s most famous ‘hauntings’ is that of the Cauld Lad of Hylton. Hylton Castle is located in North Hylton, Sunderland. Has anyone experienced anything unexplained in or around the castle? If so, please get in touch!


Castle Keep, Newcastle upon Tyne

OWNE are currently trying to trace the earliest reported ghostly sightings in Castle Keep, Newcastle upon Tyne. At the moment, the earliest we can find is from 1991/2. If anyone knows of any written accounts earlier than this period please get in touch.
