Halloween buffet and ghost hunt at The Mallard. October 26th 2024

Sold out

The building that we know today as The Harvester, in Hemel Hempstead, started it's life as a posting house, according to census records dating back to 1851. These would be houses or, in this case an inn, where horses were kept that could be rented out. They would be used as post offices are today, to distribute the mail. Back in 1861 it was known as The Railway Hotel and had provisions to stable 7 horse. Between 1855 and 1912, the census records show us that it was run by various generations of the Dunning family.


We were invited here for an investigation, after some of the current staff had experienced strange goings on within the building, the most frequent one being the hand dryer in the ladies toilets turning itself on late at night when the restaurant was being locked up. There was also a recording of someone, in the carpark, walking about and then disappearing, on the cctv footage. Our last investigation proved the building to be very active with lots of emf meters going off, ouija board work and seeing someone's hair being tugged!
