EP64 The Evil Spirit Strikes Back: When paranormal activity destroys a Welsh home, is it the work of a poltergeist, a curse, or just local lore? Find out on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast

Can poltergeist activity really destroy a building, or is it just local lore?
When objects started moving of their own accord on a Welsh farm, it was assumed an evil spirit was at work.
But following a botched exorcism there was no stopping its destruction, which including first destroying the contents of a building, followed by the building itself.
Could this all have been the work of a single poltergeist, or was there something else at work? A local folk tale claims the property is cursed and, with the curse seemingly coming true, many assumed that it was more than a coincidence.
