23rd March 2012 unnamed pub ghost walk
Today the PSI group investigated a public house in Hull. The owners of the pub wish for it to remain anonymous for reasons that cannot be stated, but claim to have paranormal happenings.
The Landlord claimed that a key was thrown at him whilst he was working in the cellar. However, nobody was around that specific area at the time and suspiciously the key does not fit any lock on the premises.
, a member of the team sensed that the back of the room had an unusual atmosphere. She felt like there had been a fire at the property and the name ‘Charles’ came into her head, although she did not know what connection to the pub Charles had, when we quickly researched the pub we found that a Mr.Charles Jackson owned the pub in 1966.
Leaving this room we worked our way onto the ground floor to explore the stock room and existing cellar. Although the existing cellar was interesting the group was intrigued by the cellar that used to be. The landlord gave us permission to enter the underground cellar. We opened the hatch that led down to the cellar and entered it. The cellar was a small abandoned room which led to another room of the same size.
We were then told that they were two tunnels in the cellar, that ran across the back of the room; these tunnels were used by smugglers. The smugglers trafficked a lot of different things when they were in operation, from alcohol to food and even slaves.
When the séance was in progress a member of the group picked up thoughts and feelings of a woman and a child as did myself and others. However, no spirits wanted to come forward therefore we ended the séance and returned to the ground floor.
Meanwhile, a group of investigators where using a glass as a form of deviation to contact any spirits that wanted to come forward. The glass was lightly touched by the landlord, landlady and their son.
Over a period of time the glass began to move when requested and it became apparent that it was the landlord’s mother. They asked her a series of questions such as ‘Do you live here with us’ and did you throw the key? The mother replied no to living with them. However, when the question ‘do you visit us occasionally’ was asked she replied yes. The mother also admitted to throwing the key at the landlord.
