Summary of events
This is our 3rd investigation at this amazing venue this year and as ever, it certainly didn’t let us down.
In July we attended and our Medium had a very difficult time, we contacted over a dozen spirits of which only a few were of a nice nature.
Numerous voices, footsteps and other unexplained noises were heard and recorded.
A few shadows and forms were seen moving around but sadly not on camera.
In August we had a very eventful investigation, we had our leading Medium join us along with the original and the whole event was dominated by 1 very nasty spirit refusing to leave our lead Medium alone. He is a trance medium with a great deal of experience but here was possibly the worse place he has ever worked as this spirit forced him into a trance on 4 occasions and on each, he couldn’t come out, we had to coax him round. The spirit was trying to use the medium to harm us. This event could easily fill a small book with details; however we shall concentrate on this recent investigation.
December 3rd investigation has to be the best yet!
We split into 3 groups. 1st vigil had group 3 in the 1st floor landing area bothered by a spirit called Michael, our medium communicated with him but surprisingly Ms D could see him standing in the doorway. He disappeared then hit our mediums crystal ball off its plinth onto the floor.
2nd vigil had Mr A1 being used in a trance by a boy trying to flee his nasty father who we later learned was the known spirit Michael. Mr A1 knew he was sensitive but being thrust straight into mediumship was a shock to us all.
3rd vigil found Mr D, Mr A2, Mr A1 and I – Kieron in the attic.
It was quiet but I knew something was near. We agreed to try an Ouija Board (with owner’s permission) we gathered all available protection within ourselves and asked our guides to protect us then opened the session. I must stress that this was not and should ever be taken lightly! This can be dangerous and should only used with experienced participants.
We immediately gained contact with a spirit feeding us false information and warnings of death etc etc. I seemed to just know it was Edward the main dominant spirit there and accused him of wasting our time, we know who he is and to step aside to let other spirits get through. What happened next should be a warning to anyone using the Ouija board!
We asked for a sign outside the board and we heard a deep kind of groan or yell.
I felt his presence rush across the attic towards us as did Mr A1 and the others felt a freezing blast of air hit us with force. I felt him at first right behind me, we continued then I felt him stand in the spot I was sitting, I felt overcome by a feeling I cannot explain but I think he was trying to get into me as if I could be used as a channel. This was getting unbearable and I then felt a terrible stabbing pain in my back, moments later the board spelt out stab & die! I felt my pain lift slightly, within 2 seconds Mr A1 was knocked over breaking a chair as he went and was unconscious then I felt all the pain and feelings return before I passed out. I remember being brought round and was weak and wobbly. We closed the Ouija session and thanked our guides for the protection under these rather difficult conditions. I was helped downstairs but was aware of him watching me and laughing. I think this horrible event has taken me to the next stage in my development towards mediumship. For the rest of the investigation I could tell when either Michael or Edward was near.
Mr A1 was used a number of times by James and we tried to get him over to the other side, however his Father Michael wouldn’t let him. He actually snatched James out of Mr A1 leaving him in pain as he felt he had been kicked in the ribs a number of times.
We had other incidents with the Ouija board and also recorded strange noises plus a few pics to accompany this article. We have still not analyzed all our footage yet but so far, it was a very eventful investigation.
We hope to return in January or February for some more scares!
