Thousands of people walk Clevedon Pier’s planks each year, but have you ever witnessed any ghostly goings on there?

Visitors and fishermen at the pier have long claimed to have seen a ghostly figure at the end of the pier, while tales of women’s voices have also been told.

But is there any truth to the rumours?

Well, five years ago Bristol and UK Supernatural carried out a paranormal investigation to get to the bottom of the spooky stories.

While searching the area, the group came across what is known as a level two spirit – a being which can make physical contact and interact with people and objects – belonging to a doctor called Jimmie.

Claire Stevens, founder of Bristol and UK Supernatural, said in her findings: “After sending in the mediums and cross referencing with an earlier visit we can confirm that there is definitely a spirit at the fourth lamp post up on the right hand side of the pier.

“When doing an electronic sweep of the area, we were given the words doctor, balloon and Jimmie.

“After further investigation around this area, we found that the plaque underneath the lamp post (balloon) is that of a doctor, James Dunn.

“The team agreed that we had found the right person and so we sat down in that spot and did a voice recorder electronic voice phenomenon (EVP) session.

“We have played back and filtered the recording, but at this stage nothing was recorded apart from our own voices and waves underneath the pier.

“When doing the EVP session a strange object did appear above the seat and was witnessed by both myself and another team member.

“What I will say is that after probing the area it seemed that the spirit became agitated with our presence, and equipment started to drain power.

“We decided then that it was best to leave it alone.”

The team then moved to the top of the pier where it discovered the words break and Monday, while a signal was also sensed from the neighbouring Royal Pier Hotel.

The findings concluded: “In all, the team all concurred that there was definitely paranormal activity on the pier, however the extent of its intelligence can only be established with further investigation.”
