Join Haunted Discoveries UK as we carry out a ghost hunt and investigate the historic Erasmus Darwin House in Lichfield.
We at Haunted Discoveries UK like to employ both traditional and scientific methods of paranormal investigation. As a guest we will invite you to take part in active experiments including group and lone vigils, table tipping, and pendulums. You will also get the chance to investigate using some of our equipment, which include: spirit boxes, temperature guns, rem pods, dowsing rods, Alice software, and mel meters etc. Guests should be aware that we will not be using the Ouija Board on this investigation due to the preferences of the location.
Reported Activity: There have been many varied reports of paranormal occurrences throughout the building. Doors will often open and close without explanation, the sounds of children laughing and disembodied voices are heard with the sounds of people moving around and unexplainable knocking and banging sounds. Light anomalies have been witnessed along with temperature fluctuations and a distinctive odour of tobacco smoke has been reported.
The Erasmus Darwin House is a Grade I listed building and a writer’s house museum commemorating the life and achievements of Erasmus Darwin’s life. The grandfather of naturalist Charles Darwin was a renowned physician, scientist, inventor, poet and educationalist. The building has also previously served as a residence for cathedral officials and as a women’s shelter.
He purchased the house, which was a medieval half-timbered building, in 1758 and during the following year he converted it to a Georgian town house. His medical practice was based in his house for the next 20 years. He carried out his scientific experiments here (it is said he also carried out public dissections in the cellar), held meetings of the Lunar Society and planned the construction of the Trent and Mersey Canal. Famous faces he invited to his home include Josiah Wedgewood, Matthew Boulton, Benjamin Franklin and James Watt.
