A Chester hotel room with a ‘haunted’ doll is so eerie that visitors must sign off on the fright before being allowed in.
Ye Olde Kings Head on Lower Bridge Street is home to the infamous Grace doll in a glass case within its walls. To get anywhere near her requires one to be an experienced paranormal investigator, and even then they must sign a waiver before proceeding any further.
After the recent arrival of Grace doll – proclaimed by Danny Moss, a paranormal investigator involved with My Haunted Hotel at Ye Olde Kings Head – to be Britain’s most haunted item, a unique security camera was implemented to monitor it 24/7.
He stated: “Since the start of this year, we’ve had multiple individuals reporting immense difficulty while staying in room eight. Interestingly enough, it appears to leave a more pronounced impact on males than females.”
Entering this area can be an unwelcoming experience for men, inducing a feeling of unease. It’s become increasingly difficult to stay even just three minutes in there; it is almost impossible for any man to remain longer than that.
