This Halloween, I wanted to return here. Since our last visit, things have moved around, voices and footsteps heard.. Our first visit was taken up with the legend of the George Thomas Bellyse Cooper. With the research that we carried out after our investigation, we needed to investigate this building with fresh eyes.
This investigation was not going to take all night, we were only here for a few hours but we didnt want to miss this oppunity to come back to this fantastic building
The weather was cold and windy.
We started just after 8pm with a walkround, just so we could plan our investigation and to remind us of the layout of the building. We had been joined by two other people from the house. As we walked round, we heard footsteps, voices, music, a cupboard door opening and stones were thrown by us.
We started to set up our equipment just before 9pm. Phil has brought with him a new experiment. This was sent up on the 2nd floor and faced down the corridor. This experiment was to see if a spirit walked through this corridor, the light image would change. In a way, we would be able to see the shape of the spirit. This was recorded at all times on Phil's camcorder. We left this running as we headed into the cellar.
Me and Nicola stayed in this room, Phil had gone into another room down the corridor and the two other guys had moved into the room next door to us. We heard heard a stone landing on the floor. We couldnt tell if it had fell from somewhere or it had been thrown.
It had been such a shame that due to the weather, we couldnt finish the investigation. We hadnt planned to stay all night but a couple more hours would have been nice.
We did heard music, footsteps and voices. And we couldnt deciede if the stone had been thrown or just fell from perhapes the ceiling. But what was weird was the house. Even though the weather was bad outside, the inside of the house was too quite.
