Site History & Hauntings


It is believed that the original hauntings were linked to what was dubbed 'the black monk', one that had been hanged for rape back during the time of Henry 8th. The house now sits upon that land and the spirit seemed to attach itsellf to the property and the original tenants (the Pritchards) during the 60's & 70's.


A previoius solo investigation of 30 East Drive began with a tour from Carol, the neighbour.  Carol was very generous with her time and stories during the tour and was interesting to listen to.


During the tour we experienced 3 events:  



1. Upstairs in the son's bedroom we had a domino thrown as we were exiting.  I was running a periscope live feed at the time and managed to capture where the domino had landed.  However, i hadn't seen which direction it came from.


2. As we descended the stairs another domino was thrown.  Again we couldn't trace where this came from but found it at the base of the stairs, along with a third domino that we didn't notice on the way upstairs.


3. Whilst shut inside the coal shed, my tech engineer and Carol were in the doorway to the kitchen when I suddenly heard comotion.  Exiting the coal shed I made it into the kitchen to find a small plastic yellow ball rolling along the floor, having heard it bounce moments before this.  Again I was periscoping and caught the audio and some video of this but was too late to see where this had come from.
