Eden Camp Museum - Haunted History
Malton, North Yorkshire
The Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum is located on the former camp, which consists of 33 huts, part of a prison camp that was constructed in 1942 to house Italian prisoners. From 1944 the Italian prisoners were moved on and made way for the increasing numbers of captured and surrendering Germans who were held at the camp over the next four years.
After the last of the German prisoners were sent back to their defeated homeland, Eden Camp was used as an agricultural holiday camp and by the 1950s was being used as a storage facility, before becoming abandoned. In the mid-80s local business man, Stan Johnson, bought the derelict and overgrown site and went about turning it into a modern history theme museum, charting every aspect of WWII with each hut having a different theme from the rise of Hitler and the Germany Nazi party to its eventual destruction.
The museum stands as a monument to an emotive past and with so many people visiting, it wasn't long before tales of strange occurrences were being witnessed. Dark shadows slowly moving from hut to hut, disembodied voices in the dead of night and objects moving on their own accord have all been reported.
