Paranormal Investigator Exposed Part 2 – The Aftermath!!!

What a insane couple of days its been here at paranormal magazine, we recently lit the news of a possible investigator that fakes activity, with enough proof to convince myself, and many others within the paranormal field. .. “we say possible because you may be yet to read this article and make up your mind on weather its fake or not”

Before exposing this person we did know it would be a HARD Ride for everyone… “i can see MR T, has passion and it would have been very hard for him also”

Truth be told i didn’t want to publish these next findings… but certain individuals have been saying “MR steer has been Quite” and like im hiding away.. WRONG.. i have been very vocal about everything put to me.. its just a shame not everyone would come to me to put any questions forward… So here goes the next mile stones.. and i am truly sorry..

So upon posting the news of this investigator, this is what happened..

Mr t Replied with this 

Do and say what you want I will never fake anything and all you’ve circled on my video is the pattern in the carpet. You have no proof what so ever. I’ve always been as true as I can be on my videos and by circling nothing you look like the idiot that you are mate. Also may I add that using my name and sharing my videos publicly without my consent is against the law and I will be taking it further legally against the person named Lee Steer. 👍🏻
He then later replied with this..
Mr T:
Here’s the mark on my carpet that’s supposedly a wire lmao. All Lee has done is zoom and edit the image 😂😂😂
Tom Buckmaster's photo.
Our Images: 
Mr t:
This is my stairs this is exactly where the ball was. All I will say now is Lee looks a prat and has been proved wrong. He’s been destroyed publicly and will continue to get abuse from my followers until he apologies for outing me as something I’m not
Lee SteerBe carfull Tom that looks like a threat..
So MR t eventually replied with an answer for what the image “could be” but for me the image doesn’t match” it still leaves loads of questions about the original video.  He fasty went onto name calling “idiot” and threatening with law suites, then also threatens me with non stop abuse until i apologise “does this seem like someone who is guilty or Innocent ?
Possible More Evidence: Now for a few people this isn’t enough evidence to call a fake. For me.. it is. from looking at the video.. and pictures in my opinion i would say it is fake.. Now to give some more pictures about a different video yet again in his home…

Submitted by a watcher: If you count the lines from the bottom stair in pic is the eight line from right were you will see line going up to leg closer, “this is on another video”

Neil Cook's photo.
This is even clearly seen at 4m 20 bears left leg Tom Buckmaster Watch This At 4:20 Teddys Left Leg, On Our Right. Large Screen Turn On HD Play Back. you see fur move on leg at 420 on large screen in hd

We then offered MR T a lie detector Test to prove this is infact real evidence and not faked.
This was declined.
Now considering all of the evidence i have seen on the pictures, videos, there is no doubt in my mind that we have seen faked paranormal acitivty.. sorry to say it but i will stand by what i say… that is my opinion and thats the last i will say on this matter.. hopefully this is more content to make “more” people make up their minds on weather this is fake or real!
now i think this debate may continue but i personally have seen enough to convince myself and i know many others have..
We Consider This Case Closed..
Feel free to debate the case, But we will stick with out original statements based on the evidence we have seen.
i really do feel there was enough evidence out there to make peoples mind up, all they have to do is read and research, so i apologise again for another article.
Thanks for reading.
And please DO NOT FAKE. because we will not hold back to expose Anyone…

Never Investigated By Any Other Paranormal Team And Is Exclusive Only To The Uk Ghost Hunts Team.

Many Unexplained Figures And Noises Have Been Said To Roam The Hall Over The Years As Uk Ghost Hunts And Guests Will Now Investigate This Great Location

The Endcliffe estate can be traced back to 1333 when John de Elcliffe was awarded a financial grant, at that time the estate extended considerably and took in land between the Porter and Sheaf valleys. It is believed that the first Endcliffe Hall was built in the reign of George II (1727 – 1760) although Sheffield historian J. Edward Vickers says there may have been an earlier building on the site. The hall was owned from 1818 by the merchant William Hodgson and included 50 acres of land and cost £6,700. The hall later passed to Henry Wilkinson, a Sheffield silversmith before being bought by John Brown in August 1860.

Brown had previously lived at the large seven bedroomed house of Shirle Hill in Cherry Tree Road, Nether Edge and entertained the Prime Minister Lord Palmerston there in 1862. However Brown was looking for a more impressive structure to entertain his visitors and wanted a building that was “…. specially adapted for dispensing hospitalities on a scale worthy of such distinguished visitors”. Brown’s first action on acquiring the building was to pull the old hall down and replace it with the current building which cost £100,000 to build with a further £60,000 spent on the furnishings. Brown was determined to use Sheffield craftsmen during the work on the hall and in addition to the architects Flockton & Abbot he employed local firms such as John Jebson Smith (staircases), Longden & Co. (kitchen stoves), Messrs Craven (ornamental plasterwork), William Gibson (carpentry), Mr Pitt (plumbing and glazing) and John and Joseph Rogers (decorating).

Such was the rarity of such a fine building being erected in Sheffield at that time, that when the hall was finished it was opened to the public for three days attracting huge crowds and much praise with the Sheffield Telegraph calling it, “the public advantage of personal munificence” in its edition of 24 May 1865. After the death of his wife in 1881, Brown gradually withdrew from public life, his health deteriorated and he spent increasing amounts of time in southern England. John Brown left Endcliffe Hall for the last time in 1892 and sold Endcliffe Hall for £26,000 in 1895 (a year before his death) to Barber Brothers and Wortley for building development. The development never took place and various plans were proposed for the future of the hall, which in the interim hosted exhibitions and dances.

St John’s House Museum is a historic house located in Warwick, just east of the town centre, in Warwickshire, England.

It is now a museum, run by Warwickshire County Council, and has had a varied history spanning almost 400 years. To the side of the house is a small garden belonging to St John’s and to the rear is the large St. Nicholas’ Park.

The existing building is not the first on the site. The first recorded one was a hospital dedicated to St John the Baptist which was founded at some time during the 12th century the reign of Henry II. John was a popular choice of dedication during this period and served the double purpose of giving casual overnight boarding and foods to poor travellers, and for ongoing help for the local poor and ill.

After changing hands during the monastic dissolution the building was altered almost beyond recognition in 1626 and transformed into the current building. In 1788, George Greville, 2nd Earl of Warwick purchased the property and it stayed in the family until1960. During this period, in 1815 it was turned from a family residence into a private school

In the 1960s, the property was passed from the Earls of Warwick to Warwickshire County Council who turned it into a museum which it still remains. The ground floor is composed of social history exhibits and a re-creation of the school that occupied the building. On the first floor is a museum dedicated to the history of the Royal Warwickshire Fusiliers.

Ordsall Hall is a historic house and a former stately home in Ordsall, an area of Salford, in Greater Manchester, England. It dates back more than 750 years, although the oldest surviving parts of the present hall were built in the 15th century.

 

Ordsall Hall is a formerly moated Tudor mansion, the oldest parts of which were built during the 15th century, although there has been a house on the site for over 750 years. David de Hulton is recorded as the owner of the original hall, in 1251. The manor of Ordsall came into the Vicky Grantpossession of the Radclyffe family in about 1335, but it was not until 1354 that Sir John Radclyffe established his right of inheritance.

A view of the west side of the west wing, with the Great Hall in the middle

During the 1340s Sir John Radclyffe campaigned with Edward III in France, distinguishing himself at the battles of Caen, Crècy and Calais. As a reward for his service, the king allowed Sir John to take some Flemish weavers back to his Ordsall estate, where he built cottages for them to live in. English weaving skills at that time were poor, and textiles from Manchester were considered to be of particularly poor quality, so the Flemish weavers were employed in instructing the local weavers. They also started up a silk weaving industry, the foundation for Manchester’s later cotton industry.

The Dutch humanist and theologian Erasmus stayed at Ordsall Hall in 1499, and described it thus:

The original cruck hall was replaced by the present Great Hall in 1512, after Sir Alexander Radclyffe was appointed High Sheriff of Lancashire. The hall is typical of others built at that time in the northwest of England, although it is one of the largest, and is unusual for the period in having no wall fireplace. The hall has an elaborate roof structure, as in the similar Rufford Old Hall. There is a slightly later small room above the large oriel bay, which may be an early addition as at Samlesbury Hall.

Other alterations and additions were made during the 17th century, including a modest brick house added onto the west end in 1639, perhaps intended as a home for Sir Alexander’s bailiff, as he himself no longer used the hall as his main residence by that time. The house was built at 90° to the timber-framed building, to which it was later joined. During the Civil War Sir Alexander, as a Royalist, was imprisoned and suffered financial hardship. Reduced means eventually forced his heir, John Radclyffe, into selling the hall to Colonel John Birch in 1662, thus ending more than 300 years of his family’s occupation

SMETHWICK BATHS GHOST HUNT 26h July 2014

Smethwick Swimming Centre, previously known as Thimblemill Baths, has gone through many interesting changes, had famous faces pass through its doors and also survived the Second World War. Opened on the 30th March 1933 and designed by Chester Button and Roland Fletcher, the art deco features of the building were inspired by the high arched roof of aircraft hangers in France. In turn these features were derived from the Scandinavian timber construction of the Breslau exhibition pavilion in the early 1920s. Other similar designs can also be found at the Royal Horticultural Hall in London. Person0 Available

Location: Smethwick, Birmingham
Date: Saturday 26h July 2014

During WWII, the vast network of underground tunnels and cellars which lie beneath the complex were used as an air raid shelter; posters and drawings from that time can still be seen to this day. There was also a U.S. Air Force base just around the corner from the baths and it is thought that they would have made use of this underground space too.

Paranormal activity is rife at this venue and so plentiful that there just isn’t room to detail all of it here. However, without a doubt, the most haunted part of the building is underground, in the aforementioned network of tunnels and cellars which are both creepy and disorientating before any mention of the supernatural is even made.

Apparitions in this area include a man in a green boiler suit, two gentlemen apparently engaged in a frantic chase, a black American Airman and even a horse, to name but a few. The phantom equine may seem out of place until one learns that this particular part of the cellars was built on/underneath a moated farm.

 
The underground room once used as a morgue apparently plays host to a spirit of a man with long hair and beard, who has shown himself on several occasions. Meanwhile, in the air raid shelter, strange blue lights have been seen and often members of staff will enter this area to find pyramids of stones that have been neatly built on the floor. A small boy has been sensed in here and many paranormal investigations have picked up on a girl who goes by the name of Emily. In recent years an escape tunnel was discovered which now runs underneath a block of flats. One resident of these flats has regularly seen a little girl in her home and it is thought likely that this is the ghost of Emily too.

During some refurbishment work in one of the tunnels, a workman kept complaining about a group of children who were running about and making a lot of noise, and despite the management’s reassurance that there was no way any children could be down there, he would not be convinced. Another workman, upon appearing at the manager’s door breathless and white as a sheet, described how he had been working in the cellars when he looked up to see the ghostly face of a little boy staring back at him through a hole in the wall.

However, while the tunnels and cellars are certainly very active, they do not have an exclusive claim to the paranormal activity within the building. In the changing rooms upstairs, the lights are on a motion sensor, yet after-hours they often switch on in sequence, as if someone is walking around, despite the doors being locked. Footsteps are also heard emanating from this area in similar circumstances, and wet footprints have appeared hours after the last visitor has left, leaving staff members utterly baffled.

We really have only touched the surface here in terms of the paranormal activity experienced on a regular basis at Smethwick Baths. It is certainly one of the more unusual venues we have seen on our travels, which makes us confident that you will be as eager to investigate it as we are!

KELVEDON HATCH SECRET NUCLEAR BUNKER GHOST HUNT 2014 june 2014

In the middle of a field, in the heart of Essex, sits an innocuous looking bungalow. However, until fairly recently, very few people knew that underneath this cottage lies a vast underground bunker, in which up to 600 people could live during the aftermath of a nuclear war. As the bunker lies only 25 miles from London, it is thought that the Prime Minister and his cabinet may very well have been whisked there in the event of the dreaded nuclear attack.

Kelveden Hatch Ghost hunt

Location: Kelvedon, Essex
Date: Saturday 21st June 2014
Time: 9pm – 3am
Cost: £39 Per Person

Kelvedon Hatch bunker 2014

Originally built at the height of the cold war in 1952-53 as part of the ROTOR air defence project (an elaborate radar system designed to counter possible attack by Soviet bombers), the role of the building changed over the years to a Home Office ‘Regional Seat of Government’ (SOC) and then in its later years to a ‘Regional Government Head Quarters’ (RGHQ). The RSG/RGHQ would have been tasked with organising the survival of the population and ensuring successful continuation of government operations in the event of a nuclear attack. It was maintained as an emergency RGHQ until 1992 when the nuclear threat was seen as diminished. The site was sold back to the family who owned the land originally and is now a Cold War museum, retaining many features from its former life.

Since becoming a museum, Kelvedon Hatch Nuclear Bunker (the ‘Secret’ part of its title no longer makes much sense seeing as it has its own website and brown tourist signposts in the area!) has become notorious as a haunted location, appearing on Living TV’s ‘Most Haunted’ as well as other programmes and has been the focus of many paranormal investigations.

It may seem unfeasible that a building which was never actually used for its intended purpose would be haunted. However, there is a story that during the construction of the bunker’s walls (10ft wide and 100ft deep), concrete was being poured day and night. One morning the day shift found the foreman’s hat floating on the wet concrete and the man in question nowhere to be found and never to be seen again – the assumption being that he was accidentally buried within the walls. During its first incarnation from 1952 until the late 60s, lots of people would have spent a great deal of time in the bunker, guards were positioned there 24/7 and there were regular drills which involved staff remaining underground for up to two weeks. Are some of these staff returning after death to continue their duties? Additionally, the bunker is built very close to a Roman burial site and early Bronze age site, which may also go some way to explaining the strange phenomena occurring within the building.

Several apparitions roam the complex, including a grey figure who moves from room to room. Witnesses have described it as taking the form of an ‘unusually tall elderly lady’. As well as an RAF officer who has been spotted on several occasions, more than one person has had the frightening experience of meeting with a woman in uniform who angrily instructs them to leave the building. Similarly, one visitor during the day was walking through the dormitory when he was told to ‘go back’ by a disembodied voice, leaving him rather shaken as there was no-one else in the area at all.

The sick bay, complete with cardboard coffins (easier to store as they fold up!), seems to be one of the paranormal hotspots. Dark shadows are seen flitting back and forth and many mediums have sensed a malevolent presence which may be responsible for the feelings of dread and foreboding which many people experience in this area. Some have even gone as far as to describe this sinister entity as being demonic in nature. It has to be presumed that if such a negative force exists then it has to originate from long before the bunker existed.

Other activity in the nuclear bunker includes the throwing of stones by unseen hands and the sound of loud crashes and bangs emanating from empty rooms in the middle of the night. Strange lights and mists have been seen to materialise from thin air, a strange growling sound has been heard and an unexplained foul odour has appeared more than once during previous ghost-hunts at the location.

DRAKELOW TUNNELS 22nd March, £35.00

Venue Description

The Drakelow Tunnels are a former underground military complex beneath the Kingsford    Country Park north of Kidderminster, Worcestershire, covering 250,000 sq ft. The    tunnels, which have a total length of 3.5 miles, have a very interesting past and    are a historical monument to the military history of the United Kingdom.
Designed by Sir Alexander Gibb & Partners, the Drakelow Tunnel Complex (originally called    “Drakelow Underground Dispersal Factory”) was excavated during World War II in sandstone hills near the village of Kinver and the town of Kidderminster. It was originally  constructed as a shadow factory for the Rover car company who were at the time manufacturing  engines for the Bristol Aeroplane Company.

It was also intended to supply components to Rover’s main shadow factories at Acocks Green and Solihull, to supply spare parts, and to act as a backup facility if either of the main shadow factories was damaged    by enemy action. The tunnels contained dormitories, storage areas, workshops, electrical equipment, toilets, offices, a BBC studio, a GPO Telephones communications facility and other facilities.
During the 1950’s and the growing Cold War, the site was initially used by the Ministry of Supply for storage. Then around 1958 part of the site was    developed by the Home Office as a Regional Seat of Government (RSG9). It was publicly exposed in a demonstration held there by the West Midlands Committee of 100 in the    summer of 1963. Under later Home Defence schemes the bunker was designated a Sub-Regional  Control (SRC), Sub-Regional Headquarters (SRHQ) and finally Regional Government Headquarters    (RGHQ). The site was greatly modernised in the early 1980’s, only a small portion of the site was designated for use. New blast doors were fitted in place of the previous    wooden factory doors and the interior of the site was refurbished in the areas forward of tunnel 4.
It is claimed that during construction workers were crushed to death    by collapsing tunnels and accidents with dumper trucks. Reports of experiments gone    wrong, and people stationed there taking their own lives. Many mediums have picked    up on a deadly demon’s presence down by the old theatre.
