Richard Felix - Paranormal Historian

Richard Felix has been haunted by ghosts since the age of four, but he does not see dead people. He is frightened of ghosts! He still is .So what makes a man who is so frightened of ghosts look for them.

Richards’ passion for life has always been history, especially military history with a special interest in disasters e.g. The Charge of the Light Brigade, The Alamo, Custers Last Stand, and the Titanic. Richard is a great believer that ghosts and history go together and firmly believes that ghosts exist—he has seen one,  heard one, travelled with one, but still remains firmly on the fence and remains sceptical about most ghostly occurrences. At least eight out of ten  can be explained, it is the remaining two you need to worry about.

In 1992 Richard opened The Derby Heritage Centre. (a Tudor Grammar School) with ghosts and thus started the origins of  the now world famous Derby Ghost Walk

Richard  specialises in ghost tours around the U.K. and Ireland and has personally taken in excess of  a quarter of a million people on a ghost tour.

Twelve years ago he opened the haunted Derby Gaol ; scene of the last Hanging, Drawing and Quartering in England.

Ten years ago he embarked on the Ghost Tour of Great Britain. Visiting every county and recorded onto D.V.D’s their haunted tales. Richard has now created over

fifty of these D.V.D’s The success of these has resulted in them being put into book format which are selling throughout Great Britain.

The knowledge and expertise gathered by Richard over many years drew him to the attention of the T.V. and radio media and he has appeared on many paranormal programmes. Four years ago he became the Paranormal Historian on the world acclaimed T.V. programme  Most Haunted.—he has now completed ninety nine programmes (six in America) and twenty  lives.

Richard is now currently working on a New T.V. show which will explore all aspects of the paranormal.

Richards ’passion and enthusiasm for ghosts and history have put him at the forefront of the quest to prove beyond all doubt that ghosts really do exist and there is  life after death.

Richard lives with his wife Julia, sons Edward and William ,dogs Bingham Charlie and Brock , cats Custer and Crocket  on a  haunted medieval moated site in rural Derbyshire.

For many years Richard has delivered lectures and talks to W I’s Rotary Clubs and after dinner speeches. His specialised subjects are ---- The Paranormal, (What is a Ghost)

Murder Crime and Punishment. Executions ,the Charge of The Light Brigade, Bonnie Prince Charlie , Mary Queen of Scots, Derby the Cross Roads of History. Royal Murders, Bloodstained Britain.

Richard’s new book “What is a ghost” is very controversial and deals with the realities of ghosts  rather than the Scooby Doo side of things.
