Investigators: Ian, Kim, Paddy and Dave.
Using visual and scientific methods combined with spiritual theory we
were to investigate the alleged paranormal phenomena at this venue. We
had been to this venue any times now so we resorted to our tested method
of simple vigils with the option of conducting a séance had we
felt this was appropriate. All the normal equipment as above was deployed
around the vicinity of the vigil area.
We settled into our customary position seated in the area of the altar
as this is where we have had most of our best results previously. Dave
and Ian's camcorders were running as were Kim's, Dave's and Paddy's voice
recorders. This was to remain the case for the rest of the investigation.
No soon as we had sat down we had to call a halt as a vehicle approached
out location. We have to do this as we need to check if the vehicle park
and the occupants stay in the area of the church as this may affect or
confuse any results we may get. A good twenty five minutes pass before
we are certain the vehicle had gone and we took our seats again, Dave
began calling for anyone with us to join us and referred to previous results
we have had. Paddy added that we had a spare seat and anyone should feel
free to join us. The team continue to think they are hearing and seeing
things so Dave continues to call and other members of the team continue
We resumed our seats after a brief break and continued as before, initially
in silence listening out for the ambient noises of the church. It was
so quiet for some time that there was an air of anticipation that something
was building, so Dave started calling out with a full explanation of why
we were there and what we would like to see or hear, this was until another
car pulled up outside and torchlight was seen outside the building so
we had to abandon the session.
After a break and ensuring our visitors had gone we resumed our positions
we continued as before. Dave began to call aloud again once Paddy had
returned from investigating a noise that was heard. Dave asks for another
confirmation and continues questioning. After a long period of questioning
with no responses Ian took over the calling. After a prolonged period
with little or nothing to comment on, and considering the coldness that
had set in, it was decided to take a break.
Warmed (slightly) and refreshed we again returned again for what was going
to be our last session of the investigation. Ian began calling explaining
this and that the cold was getting to us and we wished somebody to provide
us with something to make the nights investigation worthwhile. With no
responses Dave had a go at doing the same. Alternate calling continued
until we became aware of a group of people on foot outside the building
so again had to halt what was to session. Regrouping for a brief while
it was not long after this that we decided to call and end to the session
and close of the investigation.
