Local history / Ghost and hearsay.

  • 80% of people who signed up for war at this area never make it back.
  • Mine crash – 10 people were killed within the mine with 2 carriages running into each other. upon inspection the carries was fine and brakes worked perfectly, so its a mystery of why and how they crashed together.

  • frequent reports of male figures with  old overalls on carrying  a lamp. which has been known to terrify people out of no where, just comes from the darkness.

The Investigation 

We arrived on site at 8.00pm. and decided to take a scout around before we did the live stream investigation. we instantly went to the outside chapel, mostly everyone took an instant dislike to the area, a creepy vibe. although the site is a memorial to the soldiers “battle of Somme”

We left the church area to try find the swamp, which was a struggle as we didnt find it, we decided to go across the live train platform to see whats across there. and there was an instant feeling compared to the woodlands we just came from. it was a complete different vibe and look. everyone felt abit strange and said the area seems so DEAD.  back across the train track full with life, back on this side DEAD. trees dead, No bird sounds, no Winds, you could HEAR A PIN DROP.

with mins to spare till the live investigation, we felt this was the best area to start the stream.

The LIVE Starts

So we did a brief introduction to the live audience watching us on facebook.

We jumped right into an EVP session. since it was so quite, we asked a few questions and replayed the recording back to find a fly noise. but we cant remember a fly been around the recorder, we also then asked the live audience if they saw one. they said No. anyway didn’t think to much to it. then we heard footsteps like walking around us. we decided to try it again but this time i stood back so i could watch everyone’s feet and they could also watch me. this second attempt we didn’t get no footsteps sadly. but we are all sure we wasn’t walking around on the first session.

We then decided to move location and take a path we didnt take before, a path which takes us back to the camp area.. walking down the path we noticed a swamp like area. maybe it was the area of this legend. we decided to ask some questions to the Ghost box.

I dont think we got anything related to this area, and incident of the child’s spirit connected to the swamp. but we asked where do you want us to go, and a short time later it said MINE.

The LIVE Audience 

3 miners

the huge live audience who watch us every week are our second set of investigators and eyes, they sometimes will hear things we missed or see things we dont! and it was common that a few said we had people following us. 3 men following us around.

some people sent us pictures one of them is Lesley upon posting the image people believe that it is the spirit of 3 miners who lost their life’s

Through the investigation we had the word MINE said one more time. are they wanting attention or is it just random coincidences ?

On the sceptic side of things what could the picture be? “maybe paradolia where people are making patterns out of blurry pixels.

Can many people be so wrong? i will let you decide and this concludes our investigation feel free to watch the LIVE investigation here.
