‘Haunted ruins’ of eerie church in UK still used for ‘witchcraft’ to this day

The "haunted" ruins of an eerie churchyard in the UK are still apparently used for acts of witchcraft to this day.

A scene of executions between 1570 to 1609, the grounds of St Peter's Church, Essex, played host to the grim killings of those believed to be practising sorcery.

Some 53 accused witches were hanged following trial in Essex.

The mediaeval building is believed to still be in use by those practising witchcraft today, EssexLive reported. It is also thought to be haunted

St Peter's church was destroyed by a fire of unknown origin in 1971 and left beyond repair. It had been given Grade II listed status in 1966.

As the ruins still remain, a church to replace it was built in Alresford town a few years later, Essex Ghost Hunters say.

Whilst the haunted history isn’t clear, the ruins are a big attraction for paranormal investigators.

Paranormal teams have reported discovering spirits. Some of these ghosts are said to be "happy for people to explore" the ruins, while some are said to be not too keen.

Similarly, paranormal investigators recently claimed to have captured ghosts "opening doors on command" and asking if they're friends on video after visiting one of the most haunted hotels in the UK.

Afterlife Paranormal spent the night at Castle Bromwich Hall, built between 1557 and 1585 in Birmingham, which is supposedly haunted.

Video footage from the visit, which has been shared to social media, shows door "opening on command" near the boardroom of the Grade-l listed property.

While many may have found ways to dismiss that, a device known as a spirit box was heard saying "Are we friends?" just moments before.
