The Yarborough Hotel in Grimsby was built in 1851 by the Earl of Yarborough.
The Earl was the chairman of the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincolnshire Railway Company who recognised there would an increase in trade in Grimsby when the new railway linked it into the growing network.
The hotel, now a J.D. Wetherspoons pub, is perhaps best known as the location of the Yarborough Riot. During the political riots, it is through that voters were kidnapped and held in the hotel.
P.P. Paranormal, a team of experienced paranormal investigators based in North Lincolnshire, contacted the Yarborough Hotel manager Nathan Gregory with a request to investigate the hotel as they believed it was haunted.
Nathan Gregory agreed to the request as he was well aware of a number of customers have reported unexplained phenomena. He, himself, told local newspaper This is Grimbsy that he feels less comfortable in some parts of the building than in others.
Sean Blyth, who co-ordinated for PP Paranormal also features in the newspaper video was able to reveal that an orb was caught on camera during a séance. A figure dressed in a white shirt and apparently wearing glasses is easily visible during the night time filming but who PP Paranormal cannot account for.
In Pure Spirit
Have you seen the This is Grimsby video? Is there any chance that the unknown man in the frame could be a ghost? A ghost with glasses that reflect light? Or is this just another instance of the spirits of more modern persona having a very different reaction to paranormal investigators and cameras?

I work in the hotel as when ever I go down to the cellar I always feel uncomptable and like somebody is watching me, people who I work with have seen a little girl screaming and things moving, I thought I'd research it on the Internet because I am/was a skeptic but now I wish I never looked.
