Undisclosed location in Hampshire
On Saturday 13th September 2013, a few of the Twilight
Shadows Paranormal team had the privilege of taking part in an
investigation in Hampshire.
Maria, Andrew, Dave and I opted to start
our investigation in the theatre which was once a chapel.
We joined a few others in a séance. We did make contact with a
strong spirit who came through quite quickly. He said he liked us and
told us that his name was Louis. He said that he was 37 years old. He
said that he was killed at this building and he named a character
called Mully. Louis also mentioned a lady called Gill and another man
called Robert. He also mentioned vodka but he didn't really explain
why. Louis wanted to know why we investigated haunted places.
During our séance, something
was thrown which sounded like a coin. Louis said that Mr. Roberts
threw it at us. Louis told us that he wanted justice. He also
mentioned the word 'jilted' and then he left after saying 'Goodbye.'
We tried to find what was thrown at us but we couldn't find anything
which was like the sound we heard. We tried to encourage more
activity but nothing else happened.
We decided to go for a wander
along the corridors. We went to an area where men only would have
slept and we tried to encourage some
activity there. I did capture two light anomalies on the Camcorder
but nothing else. Andrew tried using his Spirit Box to see if we
could get any information through but again, there was no activity.
We relocated to another room
along the corridor. This had a totally different atmosphere and we
decided to try some table-tipping in there. I set up my Camcorder and
arranged a table for us to sit around. We had just started and my
Camcorder and infra-red torch switched themselves off. We 'called
out' to see if we could get any spirit activity going. It felt very
promising to begin with but again, nothing much happened in this room
which was very disappointing.
We decided to investigate the
mortuary. The mortuary was situated underneath what is now, the
coffee shop. We were warned that there is a horrible smell down there
which despite numerous attempts of painting and decorating (to mask
the smell) has done nothing to get rid of this horrible stench. As we
descended the steps, it smelt of rot and decay. There were four small
rooms inside the mortuary. I went into one of the rooms and tried
'calling out.' We didn't get much spirit activity but I did capture
numerous orbs on Camcorder. When we moved into the next room, the
same happened again, no audible activity but definite light
anomalies. We could also see orbs (on the closed circuit TV that the
other team had set up in the cafe) on the screen down in the
Our next room was one of the
class rooms on the second floor. We did not get any spirit activity
in this room at all.
To finish, we decided to
return to the theatre and sit quietly at the back while another team
were holding a séance. During this, I captured a lot of light
anomalies on Camcorder and witnessed the team having something thrown
at them like our team did in the beginning.
This building held such
promise for a paranormal investigation but in reality, it did not
deliver. We wondered if the fabric of this building had been altered
so much that there was very little left of the 'soul' of the former
building which in hindsight, is perhaps a good thing. The most active
area for us was the theatre and I was not surprised to learn that
this room is the least refashioned. Although this investigation was
spiritually disappointing, we are already looking forward to our next
