About Us

South Wales Paranormal Research

was launched on Friday 31st October 2003!

About us

SWPR is based in Wales and we undertake to investigate reports of apparitions, hauntings and other spontaneous paranormal phenomena. We do not have any pre-conceived opinions about the nature of such phenomena and enter all investigations with a fully open minded attitude.

We are based in South Wales, but we do not restrict our investigations only to that area, although the focus of our work is promoting the paranormal heritage in the principality. SWPR hopes to be able to play an important role in not only preserving this rich heritage, but also making it as accessible as possible for those of all ages and abilities to enjoy to its fullest extent. We maintain links with other groups with an interest in paranormal investigation throughout the UK, and we would encourage you to get in touch with us, either as a potential member, or to establish a contact between your group and ours.

We have a growing membership base within SWPR and strive to provide a good service to them at all times. We aim to provide a number of paranormal events for members to take part in, and provide opportunities for them to undertake training as an SWPR investigator. We undertake to assist our members to develop their interest in the subject and enable them to play a bigger part within the group, offering a number of opportunities for them to play a key role in the overall development of the SWPR.

SWPR has also undertaken to support national charitable organisations such as Childline Cymru, The Cystic Fibrosis Trust, and Ty Hafan by offering our skills, knowledge and time to assist them to set up fundraising events.

Please Note:

It is important to point out that SWPR are not “ghostbusters”, in that we do not claim or attempt to rid places of the phenomena reported. Our aims are to investigate, assess and collate reported paranormal activity. We can reassure people or provide a greater understanding, or refer them to other agencies that can assist them.
