Most Haunted Investigation (Their 2nd Visit To This Location)
Gordon Smith picks up on a murder. It is interesting he doesn’t understand the language of what he feels was a stone mason who was murdered. David Well’s picks up on the same feelings and senses he may well have been French. As previously mentioned French voices have been picked up on EVP.
A séance is held and when spoken to in French, by Richard Felix, the table responds with very positive movements.
While investigating Stuart has a stone thrown at him which is clearly caught on camera, and witnessed by Yvette & Karl.
Richard gets tapping responses when asking for any spirit to contact him in the cellar.
Noises from the rafters heard by Stuart, was this bats or paranormal activity?
Both Karl & Stuart hear a noise which can only be described a deep breath, which is clearly audibly recorded. Bangs on the stairs, slamming doors and more stones being thrown continue to scare Karl & Stuart.
Gordon picks up the name LEE, is this William Leigh who brought the estate in 1845 ?
Power failures co-inside, Yvette loose power on both a torch and a camera.
A further stone finally finds a target and hits Karl in the back of the neck.
Ciarán O’Keeffe later studies the footage to confirm the first thrown stone could not have been thrown by any of the crew!
