AS part of the News investigations of all that is strange in Belper, reporters also spoke to a team of ghost tracking experts who know a thing or two about haunted Belper buildings.

The Derby Ghost Hunters formed in 2005 and regularly hold seances and nights in old buildings around the Derby area.

Once in late 2009 founder Anthony Walker Endsor and his team spent a night researching the former Herbert Strutts School, now the Strutts Centre on Derby Road.

And the team got more than they bargained for.

Anthony remembers: “We all heard a loud scream, but we were all on a tea break at that time.

“We went round and through the school to see if we could find anybody. We couldn’t find anything, there was no-on there.

“Later one of the crew heard a female voice whisper to them.

“But it was strange, there were only men there!”
