A magnificent Grade 1 listed building in north Newbury. We are super excited to bring you a ghost hunt at Shaw House.

Shaw House was completed in 1581 by Thomas Dolman, a member of a successful family who had made their fortune from the cloth industry in Newbury.


Haunted by family members and a number ghosts Shaw House has centuries of layers to uncover. From mysterious lights in the upper rooms, sounds of battle, a grey lady and ghostly screams, the ghostly activity is in abundance.

Event Plan

The evening will begin with an introductory talk. We will then hold short demonstrations on how to use our equipment, which will be yours to use throughout the evening. (No one will be expected to use equipment against their will, we respect the wishes of others).

We will then proceed with a lit walk around.

After gathering our large range of equipment, we will investigate for ghostly activity. Trigger objects and paranormal experiments will be set up in various parts. We can divide into groups for night vigils, and the very brave are welcome to explore in smaller groups!!

Regular comfort breaks will be taken which will give the groups an opportunity to discuss any paranormal activity found.

Where To Meet

A member of staff will be at the venue entrance to guide you to the base hub.

What to Bring

Please wear comfortable shoes and dress warm and casual. Please bring a torch, as sometimes we are in the pitch black.

Feel free to bring any equipment you wish, such as voice recorders, camcorders, cameras, or anything you feel would help you with the investigation. Any personal belongings are brought entirely at your own risk. We encourage our guests to carry out their own experiments if they wish.


Free light refreshments will be available throughout the evening.
