Steve Mera had been investigating paranormal phenomena for many years, and had never seen anything that shook him to his very foundations. All that changed in 1996, when he was called in with his team to look into the bizarre occurrences taking place at a small bungalow in Rochdale, Manchester, England.

Rochdale: the Northern Enfield
Mysterious water rains down from the ceiling of a post-war Manchester bungalow. Sounds of ghostly footsteps and coughs, strange smells, objects moving of their own accord. This is the true story of the poltergeist activity that plagued a UK family in the mid-1990s
The case was investigated by Steve Mera (of the Manchester Association of Paranormal Investigators & Training) who worked with the family at their home during the heatwave of 1996. Jenny was approached to write the book of the incident after Steve had read the Mammoth Mountain Poltergeist (also available from Amazon and Audible). Steve provided the original case files and testimonies and then collaborated with Jenny Ashford who wrote their story in a factual but more accessible format.
This is a short audiobook (clocking in at just under 2 hours long) that I managed to finish in a single day during my commute to work and back.In a similar manner to Mammoth Mountain, the final chapter compares the event to similar poltergeist outbreaks across the world.
