Is this Shropshire airfield haunted? Paranormal investigation group are heading to find out

An investigation group will descend on Sleap Airfield, near Wem, in the hope of contacting the spirits of airmen who died in tragic crashes at the site.

Paranormal Friends is returning to the airfield which starred in the recent ITV series Home Fires.

The return visit follows a successful first visit earlier this month where contact was supposedly made with the ‘after-life’, according to the group.
Group co-founder Veronica Extance said she can’t wait to see what further communication the group can make.

She said: “Due to the recorded and tragic history of the location we were keen to see what activity we might encounter and when we started hearing certain reports we couldn’t wait to get stuck in.

“We were not to be disappointed.

“For a first ever investigation we seemed to encounter a lot of potential paranormal activity.

“This ranged from big changes in temperatures, electro-magnetic fields and sound recordings using a spirit box radio scanner and voice recorders.

“This is being analysed at the moment but it has some excellent communication going on.

“Footsteps were clearly heard on the ground floor when everybody was on the first floor in the control tower and vice versa during two vigils.

“This just could not be explained away.”

The group will investigate the museum which contains artefacts recovered from fatal accidents and the control tower where two tragedies struck in quick succession in 1943.

Within weeks of each other, two Armstrong Whitworth Whitleys – twin-engined light/medium bombers – swung off the runway and hit the control tower, killing many of the crew and those working in the tower.

Now paranormal enthusiasts have the chance to take part in the investigation at the airfield, which is now the home of Shropshire Aero Club.

The group will use a combination of scientific and spiritual experiments including Victorian séances, K2 metres and glass divination.

The investigation will take place on March 4 next year between 9pm and 2am.

Tickets to join will cost £25 and places are limited. To book a place visit
