The Paranormal Database is a serious ongoing project to quantitatively document as many locations with paranormal / cryptozoological interest as possible, region by region, in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the Channel Islands. One hundred and three areas are currently covered, now totaling over 11,000 entries, with frequent additions and current stories continuously updated. This is not a 'paranormal tourism' site - many of these places are private, and as such, the owner's privacy should be considered paramount.
