The manor, said to be one of Britain's most haunted houses, is up for auction this month and is expected to fetch around 375,000. Prospective buyers should be aware that they will need to spend at least 150,000 to restore it to its former glory. Nerves of steel would also be an advantage.

Where it states "For official use only" - gently rub a white wax candle over the area indicated.

Hey,

I lived at wymering manor for just over a year looking after it. I actually left the manor just a few months ago before it was returned to Portsmouth council. In that time me and my team (UKPRS) did an indepth paranormal investigation on the manor to see if it is haunted.

We did have amazing results and it was the best year or so of my life. The place is amazing and needs some serious restoration work. I think we all hope the new owners will continue to allow paranormal investigations which it has become famous for.

I never experienced in the nuns in the hallway but we did have the burglar alarm refuse to set because of an intruder, a picture come off the wall and land across the balcony, a bed shake during the night, doors come open (and they were heavy) and woken up at 4am for nearly 4 months every day.

Anything video taped at all? Did you set up cams?

Your ad hominem connotes your sciolism. Now that is some funny commentary.

If I had the money, I think I'd be tempted to. It definitely has the "creepy" vibe to it, but it does seem rather charming to a degree. It would be fun to visit and check out, nonetheless.

Hey!

Thanks for the welcome! Yes we did a lot of investigating whilst we were there (pretty much every day of the 14 months I was there). In that time we also had a lot of other paranormal groups who hired the bulding for ghost hunts in there.

We did set up cameras and left them over night as well as dictaphones and motion sensors to try and catch something, we did have some videos which we have put on line with banging noises and things, but to be fair there was a lot of furniture stored in the manor when i was there so could have been something like that moving.

Aren't all the homes in Britain haunted? How does one define most haunted? Is there a vote, or is it ghosts per meter2?

And finally, anyone who uses the terms "irregardless", " a whole 'nother" or "all of the sudden", shall be sent to a work camp!
