Skyfall’s Ghost Town

In the Summer of 2011, we had a series about ghost towns from around the world. I wrote a story about a ghost town which actually takes up an entire island. Hashima Island, off the coast of Japan, was once the home to thousands of workers who were employed by Mitsubishi Corporation as coal miners. This year, the island is featured in the latest James Bond film Skyfall as the hide out for Silva and where Bond is taken to meet him for the first time.

Paranormal Activity Detected at Heartlands

There are fears that Cornwall’s newest visitor attraction and World Heritage Site Gateway could be haunted.

Strange audio recordings taken at Heartlands during a private paranormal investigation in the former tin mine last month have today been released to the public.

Investigators G.H.O.S.T. UK uncovered a number of electronic voice phenomena (EVP) and other strange noises after leaving recording equipment running in Robinson’s Shaft engine house, visitor centre, mining exhibitions and the Red River Cafe (once the carpenter’s workshop) at the 19-acre attraction.
