Event Blog / Spoiler!



Concluding our weekend in Hull, the team headed to Fort Paull which was built in 1861 and during it’s time, served as a central ammunitions store during WWI. Now home to the last remaining Blackburn Beverley (transport plane), guests had the chance to investigate several pockets of this large outdoor site, including spending time inside the plane and an old Berliner train carriage!


EVP’s (Electronic Voice Phenomenon). Throughout each vigil, several recordings captured spirit voices which at least indicated that energy was around us in all areas, however, most recordings were indecipherable on the night, almost like we were tapping into their distant conversations. On reviewing all recordings, 3 EVP’s stand out as being particularly interesting, all captured during the equipment vigil for group 1. The first, which was captured in the plane, sounds like a possible faint “I’d like to fly the plane”. Unbeknownst to the team member who captured the EVP, on our initial walk-round, another team member had picked up on just one spirit energy in the plane which he sensed was an engineer. Was this the voice captured by the engineer wishing he could fly this giant transport carrier?!.
One of 2 further EVP’s was captured during the same vigil for group 1 over in the old train carriage. As a team member asks if any spirits can see us and therefore count how many of us were on the train, there is a spirit voice captured afterwards that we think says “you’re not meant to be near them” (listen in below). Whilst another appears to say “stay off the track”. Neither were heard on initial playback.
Several other not so clear EVP’s were captured, one which starts unclear but continues with “they’ll help you”, captured during group 3’s Ouija board session after the group were struggling to get enough energy forward to move the glass and a “Yes I am” (which a few guests confirmed they could hear on playback) whilst sat on the train carriage during group 3’s last vigil (we’d asked if the spirit was a passenger).

Equipment : 2 out of 3 of our planned experiments focused on the use of equipment. Vigil 1, held down in the medical area of the Fort Paull Museum, reported back REMpod action (which detects a strong shift in magnetic field, often a sign of a spirit presence) at the same time as one of the guests reported seeing a shadow – amazing!
It wasn’t then until the last 10 minutes of the event that a further REMpod kicked into life on a table close to the train carriage entrance during group 3’s vigil. Having sat dormant for all of the experiment, the REMpod sparked into life almost like someone had entered the carriage and sat down!
K2’s lined up on the upper level of the aircraft carrier lit up during vigil 1 for group 2 and a mel meter held by one of the guests in group 1 during time on the plane, detected another shift in energy on the internal ladder steps which could also not be explained.

Traditional – some groups tried their hands at dowsing rods but our main traditional experiment was focused around glass divination (the ouija board). Very little was reported back about location spirits but for 2 of the 3 vigils, strong personal connections were experienced.

Whilst the plummeting temperatures challenged everyone’s energy levels, Fort Paull offered up activity to the “bitter” end!

Thank you to all that attended last nights investigation and got stuck in to the various experiments.
