Farsight PRS and the Ganzfield Experiment

One of the first real experiments I tried on an investigation was the Ganzfield Experiment, excluding some of the more normal techniques of course. I wanted to try something newish, something that maybe wasn’t associated with an investigation that much and certainly something different. It wasn’t an attempt to make the team look and possibly feel a little silly, but that was a comical by-product. My first attempt at our first investigation was a bit of a failure, assisted by me bringing a screw fit light bulb for our bayonet lamp, but we soldiered on with poor results. With this in mind I wanted to re-vamp the experiment a little and put it out there for others to try, so we can all benefit and learn from the multiple results. Participant of the Ganzfield Telepathy Experiment

An Explanation

Used in the field of parapsychology to test people for extra-sensory perception (ESP), the Ganzfield Experiment (German for “entire field”) is uses homogeneous and unpatterned sensory stimulation to produce a kind of sensory deprivation.

Parapsychologists Dean Radin and Daryl Bem have said that Ganzfield Experiments have given results which deviate to a significant degree from random results, that they present strong evidence for the existence of telepathy. However, some critics such as Susan Blackmore and Ray Hyman have stated that these results are inconclusive calling for further study before they can be scientifically accepted. Such is the norm in the paranormal field though!

A Little History First

Wolfgang Metzger devised the technique back in the 1930’s during his investigation into the Gestalt theory. Then later in the 1970’s Charles Honorton decided to use the Ganzfield method to achieve a state of sensory deprivation in which it is believed that psi can work.

Since Honorton and Harper published the first full experiment in the Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research in 1974, the experiment remained a big part of Parapsychological research.

Typical Method

A ‘receiver’ is left in a room relaxed in comfort, with halved ping-pong balls (yes I am serious) over their eyes, with a red light shone on them. They also wear headphones playing white noise. In this state the ‘receiver’ is in the state of mild sensory deprivation for half an hour. At this time the ‘sender’ observes a randomly selected target and tries to mentally send the information to the ‘receiver’. The ‘receiver’ speaks out loud during the half hour, describing what they see. This is recorded by someone who is unaware of the target. Following this the ‘receiver’ is taken out of the Ganzfield state and given a set of targets, from which they must identify the one the ‘sender’ communicated to them.

Lab to Field Experiment

This is obviously a Lab based experiment built on a set environment with conditions that can be repeated to ensure it fits to the usual regime of science. However, as I am a paranormal investigator, I wish to change that slightly, probably incur some criticism and adapt it for paranormal field investigation. We are all familiar with the use of mediums on investigations or even those in your team who in your experience have tended to be slightly more sensitive to the locations you investigate. Well my aim is to adapt the Ganzfield Experiment to do just that within your investigation. Making one of your team a ‘receiver’, but this time hopefully from you and possibly spirits. Of course I am not claiming this is so, but just thought it would be an interesting experiment for paranormal teams to try. After all I could try it, but would have to repeat it many many times to assess it properly. Whereas if many teams try it an submit their results we can document it and see where it takes us. Its for us all to try !

What You Will Need

Right to ensure we are all doing this the same way you will need the following:-

  1. Halved Ping Pong Balls for your eyes, yes you will look silly and of course you can use a marker to draw pupils on the outside, so you look like that guy from ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’
  2. Head phones, connected to a device like an iPod (I use one, it works well) playing White Noise.
  3. Lamp with red light bulb, use to fill the room with red light, focus it on the ‘receiver’.
  4. Two Digital Voice Recorders – ensure that the date/time stamp matches on both.
  5. Two Video Camera – again making sure the date/time stamp is matching on both.
  6. A comfortable place for the receiver within the location you are investigating. A cold dungeon probably wont do although it would be quite atmospheric!

The Farsight Field Method

This is how I want to perform this experiment in the field whilst investigating a location, use it as one of your vigils I will!

  1. The ‘receiver’ is sat alone in a room/place at the location selected by the team which is comfortable within reason. The ‘receiver’ has halved ping pong balls over their eyes, ear phones playing white noise on and a red lamp shone in their face. They should relax alone in the room.
  2. At the ‘receivers’ location a digital voice recorder records close to them and a video camera records them visually.
  3. The rest of the team setup in another room as far away from the ‘receiver’ as possible to avoid any audio seepage.
  4. The rest of the team select one individual to call and ask questions, this person is the ‘sender’.
  5. A digital voice recorder is setup close to the ‘sender’ to record what they say.
  6. A video camera covers the groups movements. If you have more than one that would help to prove all are present and correct.
  7. Once settled and ready to go, the ‘sender’ starts by asking a series of questions directed at the ‘receiver’, asking them to answer. These questions should be simple like EVP questions, but in no particular order, so the ‘receiver’ is unaware of which questions are being asked!
  8. Then the ‘sender’ should utilise a photo from a selection of photo’s and try and mentally send the image to the ‘receiver’.
  9. Lastly, the ‘sender’ should ask any spirits present to communicate their answers to some basic EVP questions (asked by ‘sender’) to the ‘receiver’.
  10. If at any time during the experiment the ‘receiver’ feels they have some information in their head, no matter how random, they should say it out loud for the digital voice recorder and video camera to record.

Looking at the Results

This part is simple, you just compare the questions to the answers as they were recorded on the devices. Hence the time stamp being so important. What we are looking for is anything that seems to match up questions and answer wise. In addition any information the ‘receiver’ may get that can be supported some how. We have to bear in mind that they may pick up on things a bit like a medium and thus must be researched for supporting evidence.

I am interested in all of your results, so please let me know how you get on good or bad, and if you do get some odd results please please let me know.

You can either post your comments, thoughts or results on here or email them to me at ashley.knibb@farsightfiles.co.uk.

I look forward to hearing from you all..

Lastly, I don’t expect overnight results on this one, so it will be ongoing now until the end of 2010. I hope for Farsight PRS to put it to the test at our next investigation in October.

Remember though, Farsight Files is not just about the paranormal, its about those that investigate it…

Pre-Investigation Thoughts…

Tomorrow see’s my team head down south near to Bournemouth to investigate a little pub which has caught my interest in a very unique way. The case itself was brought to me by fellow investigator Aaron, who will be joining us tomorrow night. However, from our first initial visit to the pub I realised how different this case was going to be.

Landguard Fort – Case Notes

Landguard (40)

With the latest issue of Ghost Voices Magazine hitting a news agents near you, thought I should post something on my blog ‘all about it’!

We investigated Landguard Fort back in March of this year and with that I learnt a valuable lesson! If a location is predominantly outside with little heating, then at that time of year you’re gonna get pretty damn cold! However, putting that aside I think the investigation still went pretty well.  Landguard (111)

The Farsight Way

Whilst I wait to see the next Issue of Ghost Voices Magazine and our report on Landguard Fort, due out next week I think, I thought I would quickly run over our kind of approach to paranormal investigating here at Farsight PRS.

First up, top of the bill is always to investigate a location thoroughly and hopefully capture good evidence. By good, I mean supported video and audio, which we can’t explain away through logical explanations. This alone is harder than it sounds, actually I would go as far as saying its quite literally nearly impossible sometimes! Why ? I hear you shout ! Simply because we set ourselves such high standards that finding that piece of evidence becomes very hard. As a team we don’t generally jump to conclusions regarding certain scenario’s and often present logical reasonable explanations for oddities! However, this can sometimes present us with a paradox, to which a team divide can develop! A divide only in opinion and belief, which is why I like working with the guys I do! If everyone sat there stating every little thing as being paranormal without a good argument to support it, then I don’t think I would want to be a part of my own team, lol !

A Bit of an Update !

Well its been a busy few months that’s for sure ! In fact its not stopping as it seems the moment we get back from an investigation we are off on another one, hardly having the time to review footage and write the report! However, we will soldier on and do our best to deliver hoping you all enjoy reading the Ghost Voices Magazine articles and watching our online show Farsight Files. I know we have enjoyed making it!

Derby to Mid-Wales

As it had been a bit of a while since my last Blog entry, a very long while indeed, I thought it was best to get back on the ball and post something at least!

Since my trip to Derby I have been a tad on the busy side, with a visit to the Morcambe Winter Gardens Theatre with DHN, returned to Derby Royal Infirmary with DHN, investigated Landguard Fort with Farsight PRS, joined DHN at Peterborough Museum, investigated the Falstaff Experience, Peterborough Museum and Llywernog Silver-Lead Mine with Farsight PRS. Oh and my daughter Summer was born in May! So, all in all a busy time wouldn’t you say?

Derby Royal Infirmary with Phil Whyman’s Dead Haunted Nights

I am beginning to realise that in the paranormal field strange things do happen! However, this time round it came in the shape of an invite to join Aaron Hardy at the Derby Royal Infirmary for a nights investigation with Phil Whyman’s Dead Haunted Nights. An opportunity I didn’t want to pass up, after all who wouldn’t want to spend the night in an abandoned hospital!

A quick google of Derby Royal returned some loose historical connections with Florence Nightingale. Which in turn were obviously backed up by sightings of cloaked figures and shadows. Something there happens to be a lot of in hospitals, shadows that is. Having a few kids I have spent some nights in a hospital before an found myself in some dark abandoned corridors. Even in a working hospital the places can be very atmospheric.

Currently I don’t hold high expectations for this investigation as I tend to think its activity reports are probably based on the psychology of a dark quiet hospital in the dead of night, increased by the fact that the place has been abandoned. Its something I personally call the ‘haunted house effect’, which basically means, because the place is old, abandoned and kind of scary looking many assume its haunted. On entering a location with this expectation people can often mistake things and jump to conclusions.

Well the journey up the M1 went well and even though I was prepared for some Friday night traffic, it wasn’t too bad at all and I got to Derby with plenty of time to spare. Then Sat Nav decided it would be funny to take me to what looked like a large M&S store and head me in the wrong direct. After a small bit of re-negotiating, shouting at the Sat Nav, turning it off and going on instincts, I decided to call Aaron to ensure I was heading in the right direction. Ten minutes later I walked up and met Aaron and friends for the first time.

It wasn’t long before we wondered in to Derby Royal Infirmary, up some stairs and into must have used to be the restaurant. We all settled in and grabbed a drink, whilst the Dead Haunted Nights (DHN) Team setup and prepared to brief us on the location.

It wasn’t long before the DHN Team were ready and Phil Whyman headed up the intro to the investigation and the location. He quickly informed us about the Infirmary and moved onto the investigation kit he had brought along for us to borrow. The kit was a good selection of scientific and spiritual, making sure there was something for everyone to try. Something that Phil added which is constantly left out, is the fact that non of the equipment is proven to find ghosts or the paranormal. In fact he explained most wasn’t even designed for the paranormal, just adopted to it. Phil also added that even if you get an odd reading, say on the EMF Meter you should search out all other possibilities first. After all there could be a good reason which is far from paranormal. Reasoning which I always like to hear.

We then had a brief tour, which was a little disappointing, although I don’t think that was any reflection on the DHN Team as I think it was supposed to be led by a more local team. This was made evident as Phil and his team members seemed to be as confused to the content of the tour as we were.

Phil informed us of our groups and the area we would be in for our first vigil and sent us on our way! I have to admit now I had seen the location and a little on the way in I was itching to get to it.

First up for us was the A&E department, which I have to admit after a brief wander through the corridors to find it, the first thing that screamed to me was classic zombie or horror film! That wasn’t the reason for our visit though, we were there looking for some paranormal activity. Trying to ignore the atmosphere of the A&E Department we took a look around, explored the area a little. I grabbed a couple of EMF readings, but apart from some areas where there were obvious cabling the area was flat. We placed a few trigger objects and decided to attempt calling out in the resus area. Nothing of note happened during this, apart from hearing some noises. However, I have to rule them out as being paranormal as members of our team were walking around the area. Simon did pick up a glitch on the K2 meter as we walked through the main area, but again it was literally a brief moment when the LED’s lit up to yellow. We couldn’t make it reoccur and my own EMF meter picked nothing up. Time was called on the vigil after around 45 minutes and we returned to the restaurant area for refreshments and our next location from Phil.

It was then we found out two members of another team saw a face through the glass of a locked door down near the children’s ward, one of them being Sara Woodward part of the DHN Team. She described her as being middle-aged and just stood there staring through at them from the other side of the locked door. We had heard some of the commotion regarding this over the radio in our previous vigil, but not known what to make of it. Our third vigil would see us in that location and something to look forward to.

Next up was Ward 16, although it might have been 18! After all it was a large place late at night. Some of the team had a go with a ouija board, whilst myself Simon and Aaron had a wonder round. We tried a little EVP, but again it was a little flat. Simon did see a flash of light up one of the corridors, to which he ran at great speed to investigate. Once again though we were fumbled by the ‘was it, wasn’t it’ situation! There was someone down a connecting corridor taking photo’s with a reasonably powerful flash, so we couldn’t be sure if the light had travelled to us. We attempted to recreate the scenario with Aaron’s camera and were left thinking it could have been the camera, so in my mind that was debunked. Once again our vigil drew to a close and we returned to the restaurant for refreshments and chatter!

We headed off to the Children’s Ward, Barnum I think and for those of you that were there the code on the door please? Suffice to say we gained access with the four digit code, which I wont mention on here, just in case. Ah hell, its 1357! We settled in the main area of the ward to begin calling out, our concentration calmed following a brief Only Fools and Horses piece of entertainment thanks to a member of the team, focussing on contacting children. We even tried using trigger objects from the room to encourage contact, but nothing came through at the time. In the last ten or so minutes of the vigil I checked out the door where the woman had been seen. There didn’t seem to be anything there that could create the appearance of someone stood behind the door, no light or shadowing to that effect anyways. Which leaves the possibility of reflection, but this too is ruled out as I think Sara was close enough to recognise herself or someone directly behind her. Also, the apparition was witnessed by two people, just a shame it didn’t hang about to get its picture taken. I am beginning to think spirits don’t like their picture taken, but who does when they are not exactly looking their best. Myself and Aaron looked around a little more, whilst the others investigated the Gym area opposite the Children’s Ward, then we all headed back.

After some refreshments Phil joined us for out forth vigil in X-Ray 2. He kicked it off with some ouija board for some of the team and then left another DHN Team member to continue whilst he wondered around the area a little with us. After a little exploring and the others rejoining us we ended up towards the end of a corridor (one of many) near a large X-Ray room, which was still fitted with its equipment. As we split from Phil and he headed in the large X-Ray room, something appeared to have been thrown into the dark. A quick search with a torch revealed a plastic chair end on the floor which hadn’t been there before. We questioned Phil and co just to ensure that it wasn’t anything to do with them, to which he denied. In fact he was immediately serious and interested. So, I apologise if I seemed like I was implying anything, its just I am naturally sceptic of everyone and everything, to ensure something was paranormal. In fact he remained with us for a little while whilst we investigated further. We tried a little recreation to better discover what may have happened and we also tried throwing the piece of plastic into the dark asking for its return. I didn’t hear or see the phenomena reoccur though. With this vigil complete we returned for some well deserved coffee.

Finally was what DHN called freetime, which basically gave us all the opportunity to have a little free roam in the final 45 minutes and investigate or just explore the location. So our little group returned to the previous spot near the large X-Ray room to see if anything else could be found. Other than me scaring Simon half out of his skin by conducting a little experiment of my which involved throwing that piece of plastic, sorry Simon schoolboy error, there was nothing to report. However, something interesting did happen which was not paranormal, but proves simply how such a location in darkness and with reports of activity can easily fuel misconception or even create simple misunderstandings. If you visit a possibly haunted location you should with the mind set to investigate and chase those shadows that may confuse you. As we waited for freetime to end myself and Aaron walked around a little near to that previously mentioned X-Ray room, at one point we crossed a doorway and headed back to the rest of our little group. Anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes later some other guests of DHN came down with one of the DHN Team asking if we had just been up by the door, we responded ‘not just’, but offered the information that we had been up there around five minutes ago. One of the guests stated it was seconds ago and quickly ruled us out as a possibility for what they had seen. She left us believing she had seen some kind of apparition. The course of events also changed slightly as headed away from us. Shortly after freetime ended and we headed back to find out more about what the night had held for others.

Phil ran quickly through the evenings events and what had been witnessed or experienced by the other teams. Most of which seemed to be personal experiences similar to our own. The woman also mentioned the apparition she had seen, but now added a white shirt or doctors coat. Its funny how these things develop, but I am convinced she saw us and has now come to the conclusion she saw something more paranormal. The key here would have been to chase down what she saw, investigate and rule out the explainable before jumping to other conclusions. That’s what I would have done! However, not everyone wants to run down a dark corridor, especially if they are not too sure what it is they are chasing. In the woman’s defence, she said they did call out, but this shows simply how misunderstandings of even misconceptions of the paranormal can begin.

Derby Royal Infirmary was a really interesting location and from an investigators point of view I would love to take my team in there to investigate, but I fear a few things would stump me. The size of the place and ensuring we could focus on some actual hotspots, even just running a walk around investigation would be good. After all the location is fantastic. However, their rule that doesn’t allow you to take pictures or film, would mean that we couldn’t share any evidence or even just the investigation in the usual Farsight PRS manner. That’s something that puts me off. I am not sure if the rule is from the NHS or somewhere else, I know its not a DHN rule, but must put a slight downer on the location from a paranormal investigation point of view. All in all though an excellent location worth further investigation I think.

Many thanks to Phil and the Dead Haunted Nights Team for an excellent and enjoyable night. If your looking for a Ghost Hunt I would encourage you to check them out.

Finally, thank you Aaron for the invite and for presenting me with an investigation I couldn’t turn down. With and additional thanks to your group of friends for the hospitality too, no pun intended!

Enfield Royal British Legion – ISP Investigation !

Location History & Information

The Royal British Legion Club in Enfield has been a Legion Club since the 70’s. Before then it was an active Fire Station.
Members of staff at the club have made a few reports regarding certain areas of the building. Uneasy feelings, shadows, breaking glasses and moving doors are amongst these reports.

The staff also reported that it was possible that there had been three deaths on the premises. The first may have occurred back when the building was still being used as a Fire Station. We were told that possibly during a party in the upstairs staff quarters a woman drunkenly stumbled and fell head first down the pole opening and died from the fall. The second was believed to be that of a Fireman who was crushed to death by a tender. The final one was that of a Steward / Barman (former) who died of natural causes in the bar cellar on the ground floor.

Pre-Investigation Thoughts

As this was my first investigation with ISP I was apprehensive, but to be honest I was looking forward to it. Although I enjoyed the Paranormal Tour, I thought this might be slightly different. I know Jim and co would be using CCTV, camcorders, etc to investigate. I know that they also touch on the spiritual side of things and do a few things such as glass divination, but to be honest it’s the technical and debunking aspect of investigation I’m interested in.

The location on paper sounds quite good; it’s quite large and has quite a few different reports of activity in several locations. I was looking forward to helping out ISP and getting involved in their investigation.

However, I did have a few reservations regarding the location. I had tried to do a little research and had been unable to prove the deaths had occurred. Were these just stories which had grown and changed over time?

ISP Vigil One – The Loft

Once everything was setup and following a quick break we climbed the high ladder up into the loft space. We gathered in the main boarded area in the loft on the seats available. Even with the lights on movement around the loft is restricted to the boarded areas. With the lights off, walking around is simply dangerous. Luckily we had Jim and his torch to light the way.

Pic

Most of us remained seated, but Jim, Martin and Marc (the medium) headed over towards the opposite side of the loft. I think Marc was picking up on something, but not sure what! Jim followed Marc over, firstly lighting the way, but he was also armed with an IR thermometer. I don’t know why Martin went, possibly for the reason I should have gone and felt the need to take some pictures, but didn’t.

For a little while the three moved up and down the boards, Jim constantly checked the temperature with the IR thermometer. From time to time his light would come on, possibly for safety. None of us wanted to fall through the floor.

Marc confirmed he was picking something up, but was unclear to what. Jim reported some temperature fluctuations. Lofts are commonly draughty places with variable sources. Outside the building on that Saturday night the wind had already picked up. Personally I wouldn’t be able to rate these temperature variations as the environmental conditions were not controlled enough.

Without history any loft can appear spooky, particularly with its low light and low temperature. A female member of the staff stated she doesn’t like going up into the loft at all. It makes her feel uneasy and scared. Cliff picked up a name whilst we were in the loft, but I can’t remember what it was. He did mention ‘Carpentry’ or ‘Carpenter’.

This Vigil didn’t hold much for me though, no feelings or anything to myself that was unusual. Perhaps I have been up in too many dark lofts.

We then climbed down the ladder and took a break to lead us up to midnight, when the Legion closed.

ISP Meeting with the Legion Staff

Once the members had all gone home we headed downstairs to meet with the four staff members who wanted to join us for the evenings investigation.

The Legion Staff asked a few questions which Jim and Martin answered.

We then split into two groups, ‘Spiritualists’ and ‘Skeptics’ as Jim called them. However, Marc (the medium) joined our group, ‘Skeptics’. We headed upstairs to conduct our Vigil there.

ISP Vigil Two –The First Floor

Pic

We began by sitting around a table and quite literally calling out. It wasn’t long before Jim and Martin were off taking temperature readings and generally looking around the first floor.

Pic

We had already locked off the kitchen area. Jim and his team set a CCTV Camera with a motion detector and a voice activated digital recorder. We had been told that the kitchen swing door moved by itself. I think Jim’s aim was to try and capture this and establish if this was being caused by a natural means or that of the unknown.

The only thing we did pick up was some clicks or tapping on the digital recorder. We tried to recreate the noises, but the team then became split between it being the door or a tapping on the tea urn. A second check had some more taps and a lot of external noises from the street.

Pic

As it appeared that the activity was on a low we kind of eased off the investigation a little. Myself, Martin and Marc stood near to where the old fire man’s pole used to be. Jim and Ian stood at the opposite end of the room on the stage (near the CCTV screen). A final member of the team was looking around the back bar area. All of a sudden Jim asked if we heard something, specifying Jim asked if we heard someone say ‘hello’. None of us apart from Jim and Ian heard it. Ian grabbed his camcorder from the table in almost the middle of the room, which had been recording the whole time. Ian began to rewind it to see if he had caught anything. As he did so we talked amongst ourselves, double checking what we had said and what was heard. Ian found the location on the camcorder and played it, Jim instantly recognized it. Ian made it clearer by hooking it up to the nearby TV. It was as we listened to the recording that the theories on what was being said began. Initially it was thought to be ‘hello’, but it went from that to possibly being a name ‘Marlene’, the female member of staff thought it was an ‘old boy’ speaking.

ISP Vigil Three – The Ground Floor

Pic

Our team headed downstairs to conduct our Vigil in the Ground Floor Bar area. We started off with a little wandering around to get our bearings and a feel for the area. We then settled in one of the raised seating areas and talked a little. A couple of the team thought they heard some noises, but these could have easily been environmental. I took a few pictures and was reminded of ‘Flash Etiquette’.

Pic

Then Marc picked up on something, but yet again he didn’t feel as if it was a spirit, more of an energy. He moved from our location to the front of the Bar, but nothing seemed to come of it.
Pic

I decided to investigate behind the Bar and it wasn’t long before Ian (his camcorder) and Marc joined me. We entered the Cellar area and Marc conducted a mini Vigil in there. In the almost pitch black. I think he picked up on something once again, but again he didn’t specify or elaborate. After a short while trying to make contact we left it alone and returned to the raised area.

Pic

The rest of the Vigil was uneventful and it wasn’t long before we decided to call it a night and began to pack up.

Pic

We re-joined the group upstairs and switched the lights on. I helped collect the CCTV cameras and gather up the kit ready for our departure.

My Thoughts and Feelings on the Investigation

My personal feelings on the evening’s investigation, was that it was very different from the Paranormal Tour. It was interesting to see the team as they setup their equipment and done their best to cover the possible hotspots. It was also interesting to be a part of an actual investigation and discuss theories regarding the cause of certain phenomenon.

All in all an excellent experience, both educationally and personally.

Conclusions

Do I think Enfield Royal British Legion is haunted? My initial reaction is ‘no’, but saying that the recording places me right on the fence. If I hadn’t been in the room at the time and been there as it developed I may have disregarded the evidence. However, because I was there its credibility rates higher with me.

If, as we may believe the voice on the recording is a spirit. Not one of us, which we know it’s not, then the source is unexplainable. However, as a piece of evidence the circumstances under which it was obtained may slightly invalidate it. The reason for this is that it wasn’t a controlled environment that it was recorded in. Someone could easily explain it away as being one of us.

EVP by itself is difficult as a single piece of proof anyway. Ideally two types of evidence which validate each other are better, for example EVP with Video.

As we know though the paranormal doesn’t conform to laboratory conditions and likes to make it hard to obtain good evidence.

The Enfield Royal British Legion may not be haunted as such, but there could be something there. In my opinion this location requires further investigation. Hopefully we can then obtain further evidence.

Perhaps Marc’s theory regarding a kind of energy possibly related to some kind of bad luck, maybe what haunts the Legion.

Another part of this which needs looking into is the building history. Are the stories of the three deaths true and provable, or are they exaggerated accidents. I contacted the Police regarding the deaths, but they could not return any supporting reports. However, they did mention that some accidents which may have occurred whilst the Legion was a Fire Station may have been recorded by the Fire Service. Surely if a woman had fallen down the pole drunk and died, this at least would have been a matter for the local police.

I guess the jury is still out on this location and further investigation is required in my opinion.

As ever please feel free to let me know what you think, just drop me an email.
