We return to our second spiritual home next February and we cannot wait!
Oak raven is situated in the beautiful village of Mitcheldean in Gloucestershire, surrounded by the haunted Forest of Dean- filming location of Harry Potter and other movies. 
The building we will be staying in was formerly Plump hill School, The school building dates back to 1878. The Plump Hill School was opened by the school board in 1878 with 151 places. More classrooms were added in 1890.The school closed in 1984, but operated as Plump Hill Environment centre until 2011. The site reopened as the Oakraven Field Centre in 2014.
We have stayed so many times and investigated this building and it’s surrounding forest thoroughly and can honestly say it is one of the most haunted & mysterious locations we have the privilege of knowing. 

Over the years we have had objects move in front of us, a shadow moving across and through a doorway  has been caught on camera, a heavy locked door has opened on request- which was amazing & terrifying at the same time! Several familiar voices have been heard on our portal and the word “mama” has been heard by several team & guests over the years with their own ears- no equipment being used! we have also recently,over the past year encountered a new phenomenon here, when using the portal we have often heard our own voices talking to us, opening a whole new range of questions. We have so many ghost stories about this beautifully haunted place…. But we want you to have your own!

Twilight is thrilled to bring you a brand NEW location in the heart of London, The Morpeth Arms!

Built in 1845 in Pimlico, The Morpeth served the prison guards of Millbank penitentiary and became a holding facility for prisoners awaiting deportation to Australia. The cells are still beneath the pub today and are rumoured to have secret tunnels that prisoners used to escape captivity. The Morpeth is a working pub, which overlooks the impressive & intimidating MI6 building on the north bank of the river.

In June of 1816 the first prisoners where admitted to Millbank penitentiary,during construction, these where all women. Male prisoners followed in the January. It was plagued with problems from the offset, being built on Marsh lands & old plague pits, it caused subsidence. The building was creaking & windows spontaneously shattered. In addition to problems with construction, the marshy lands where festered with disease, in 1882 a epidemic swept through the prison causing dysentery, scurvy & other disorders.  A decision was made to evacuate the building for several months, female prisoners where released & make prisoners where transferred.

There where other issues with the building, sound carried so prisoners could talk amongst each other in cells, there where so many corridors prison wardens where getting lost, on top of disease & subsidence, a new “model prison”, known as Pentonville, opened in 1842.  Millbank became a holding depot for prisoners awaiting deportation.  Around 4,000 people a year where condemned & transported to Australia  annually by 1850.

Millbank finally closed in 1890 after becoming a military prison for a short while.

Standing on site of Millbank now, is the gate modern, The Royal Army medical college, the Chelsea college of Art & design and most impressively, using original brickwork from the prison, The Millbank estate.

Twilights evening at the Morpeth will begin with a dinner in the spy room, an introduction to our team followed by an evening of paranormal investigation! You will also have the opportunity to investigate for yourself using our range of paranormal equipment.
menus for dinner will be sent 4 weeks before the event date due to seasonal changes.

The grand hotel, which now stand abandoned on the seafront, was built in 1895 by Edmond Park. The luxury hotel attracted England's wealthiest and most influential, but it was rumoured that Park held séances and strange occult rituals. Adding to his mystery and strange rumours, hemysteriously disappeared in 1899, never to be seen again. Many think that he was murdered in the hotel, cursing the property and his spirit has never left.

 

The building fell quiet for a couple of years, being purchased in 1899 by Thomas Baxter and John and Robert Fisher on 15th May 1899

Further misfortune beset The Park Hotel and due to bad publicity from a series of deaths the property was once again closed and repossessed by the Lancaster Bank in 1905.

Since 1905 the hotel has changed hands through several breweries from Tetleys - 1905 to Ind Coope -1970 and Allied Breweries - 1982. Through this time The Park Hotel has endured good and bad times, mishaps and mismanagement, problems and deaths.

Locals say a young soldier drowned in the sea and was brought back to the hotel, where he was pronounced dead. Emma Manson, who was murdered by her husband on the second floor and his body was found hanging in the tower. Another man took his life in the tower also, hanging himself from the outside. Lightning marks can be seen on the ceiling of the Observatory, where a green light used to be shone, ironically thought to ward off ghosts. . In total there are thought to have been 16 deaths on site.

 

When The Park was bought by its current owner, shrouds were found hanging from a ceiling and a human skull was found in a sink, indicating that maybe some occult or satanic worshipping may have taken place. Many stars of the stage would have stayed at The Park after performing at the nearby Morecambe Winter Gardens Theatre. Famous faces to have performed there are Laurel and Hardy, The Rolling Stones and George Formby

Built in the early 12th century, St Briavel’s was an important royal castle on the frontier with Wales and the administrative and judicial centre of the Forest of Dean – a royal hunting ground where the game was protected and the king alone allowed to hunt.

 

The castle was in royal possession by the 1160s and was rebuilt, with the small but impressive keep, by Henry II (r.1154–89). The Forest of Dean was important for another reason – it was one of the centres of the medieval iron industry, small scale by present day standards but a vital source of supply for the manufacture of weapons, especially crossbow bolts. The crossbow was the favourite weapon of the mercenaries who were employed in considerable numbers by Henry’s son, King John, who built a new hall (now vanished) and an elaborate chamber block at St Briavel’s.

In spite of this, John only visited St Briavel’s five times in the course of seventeen years, staying no more than eleven days altogether. John’s son, Henry III, also visited the castle from time to time, adding a small chapel to his father’s house. By this time the castle was functioning more as an administrative headquarters and workshop than a stronghold.

Under Edward I, thousands of crossbow bolts were produced at the castle in preparation for the king’s Welsh and Scottish campaigns. Edward took care to ensure that his arsenal was well protected. With the conquest of Wales completed by the end of the 15th century, the castle’s importance declined rapidly and unused buildings were demolished in 1680.

Edward I added a fine twin-towered gatehouse to St Briavel's in 1292. During his reign the castle was a crossbow bolt factory, using local Forest of Dean iron to produce weapons for his campaigns against the Welsh and Scots.

 

In the 18th and 19th century, the castle was re-discovered and became a prison. King John’s former bedroom, The Solar Room, was used as court room. One can still find a stone at the castle which shows marks of swords and axes. Yes, this stone was used to relieve people of their heads. The prison was closed due to many local riots. In the 20th century, the castle was completely renovated. In 1948, St. Briavels took on its new and current function: that of a youth hostel.   

 

Many years later the gatehouse became a prison where those accused of committing offences within the forest area were held while awaiting trial.

A number of prisoners’ inscriptions remain which testify to the unwholesomeness of the gaol. Fines were a profitable form of punishment – or mutilation, which served as a public reminder of the consequences of breaking the king’s law. Another form of punishment was the oubliette (which in french translates to “to forget”) The prisoners would be thrown in to a hole in the ground, the gate above them locked and covered up until the next prisoner had the same fate.

The keep collapsed in 1752, by which time the great hall had also been demolished, and the east tower collapsed in 1777 destroying the adjoining buildings.

The castle was still being used as a debtors’ prison until 1842. After centuries of neglect and decay, the surviving buildings were restored and rendered habitable at the turn of the 20th century.

 

Surrounding the castle is the very haunted Forest of Dean, well known for the witches that used to frequent the woods for healing ingredients & even healing waters at St Anthony’s well. A stunning location used for sets for films such as Harry Potter & Lord of the rings. The views from the castle are spectacular, over looking a large portion of the Forest. We are also close to the beautiful Tintern abbey.
