touch of evil

Karen Fray, 37, from Evesham, Worcestershire The unused and empty room had a creepy atmosphere. As a medium who’s investigated haunted buildings for two years, I’m used to strange events. But even so, I felt unusually on edge as I set up the spirit board in the deserted room in the cellars of Smethwick Baths, in Birmingham. There was a heavy presence in the place, I could sense it very clearly - and that was before I’d invited in the spirit world. As I made sure everything was in place on the table ready for the séance, I felt a firm pinch to my bottom. Immediately, I whipped round and spoke to the person nearest to me. ‘Did you just pinch my bottom?’ I asked Daisy, feeling slightly annoyed. Daisy was one of the other…

a history of hurt

Back home, I showed my husband the bruise, which was already fading. Eddie was just as shocked as me. ‘Oh my God,’ he gasped. ‘I can’t believe anything in spirit had the strength to do that.’ ‘Spirits certainly can hurt the living,’ I replied grimly. The building was hiding a dark secret Later, I learned some of the dark history of the baths. The place is teeming with ghosts, from Emily the 8-year-old spirit girl who whispers in visitors’ ears to a man in a boiler suit. During World War II, the baths were used by the military. Rumour has it that a woman was ganged-raped by six military men in the cellar where the séance was held. I’d been sensing the presence of one of these men. At the time, a warden was in the…

the history of smethwick baths

The art deco Smethwick Baths opened to the public on 30th March 1933. During World War II, the baths became important to the war effort as the building functioned as an air raid shelter and a morgue. The subways and cellars, now disused, that stretch underneath the baths were used to hide the public during bombing raids. Posters from the war period can still be seen today in the cellars along with drawings on the wall. After the war finished, the baths took on a new and exciting life. From April to September the main pool was open for public swimming. But from October to March, the pool was emptied, taking two days to drain. Once empty, the area was boarded off with a sprung maple floor for ballroom dances and live music…

did you know?

In 2015, the ‘ghost of a rapist’ terrorised the local community of Makande, Zimbabwe. At least 25 women, some of them pregnant, claimed to have woken up to have found a shadowy, faceless man sitting on a stool in their bedroom, who then assaulted them. One victim said, ‘It all seemed real. You could feel it. The challenge was that one’s mouth was muzzled by an unimaginable force.’ Although half the community in Makande believed these were attacks were demonic, the other half thought it was the work of a serial rapist. Fortunately, the attacks ended as abruptly as they’d begun.…

play safe

Karen Fray’s experience of being touched by a ghost is unusual, but incidents of physical contact can happen if you’re using a spirit board or taking part in a seance. If you’re in either of these situations, then you’ve opened yourself up to the spirit world and have given presences ‘permission’ to make contact. However, physical touching is overstepping the mark. If the ‘touching’ is inappropriate, as it was in Karen’s case, you need to close down the communication with spirit immediately. Boundaries and respect are important. Just because you’ve asked the spirit to make contact doesn’t give them free reign to touch you. There are, however, some precautions you can take before working with a spirit board to reduce the risk of an unsettling experience. But bear in mind, you can never…
