Wem Town Hall - Wem, Shropshire, England


Wem Town Hall
[Larger version here]

Built in 1905, the building that would eventually become the town hall of Wem, Shropshire, England, had many other jobs previous to that illustrious use... most notably, it had been a movie theatre around 1940, which is when the earliest report of a strange encounter within the building dates to. Ironically, the previous haunting of the building was basically unknown until a fire in the structure in 1995 became the starting point for a fake ghost photo; but in investigating that photo, researches ran across actual reported spooky occurences previous to the fire!

        The building was re-built after the fire, and in 2012 won a prestigious award for its new use as a community and arts center.
