The last vigil in back bar. We all sat quietly waiting
for something to happen. Lily said that she saw a Parrot
in a cage on the bar. Gaz (Ivanhoe)thought he heard
a large bird. He, Joe, and a few others thought they
saw some movement towards the end of the bar. Brenda
said that she could see a young woman walking around
the bar from one side to the other. She described this
woman as being between 20 and 30 years of age, about
5'2'' to 5'5'' , light - mid brown hair, pale complexion,
not plump but 'well covered', possibly of Irish descent
or with an Irish name, a kind of a bar maid or similar.
Felt she couldn't get her breath, lungs had filled up,
and she had collapsed, passed quickly. Smelt something
like cooking fat, burnt flesh. Felt something to do
with a fire but not the building being on fire. Brenda
also picked up on an elderly man stood at the front
|The landlord said that a
serving girl in her 20's had collapsed suddenly one
night after the pub closed and fell into the open fire
and died. Her spirit has been sighted on several occasions
and the locals call her 'Aunt Sally'.
We concluded that although there is a lot of activity
in the pub, generally there is a very good atmosphere.
Any spirits there seem to be ones that have been happy
there or those that have left their imprint on time.
Either way the building is a very safe and good place
to live and work.
|A very intresting place well worth
visiting again (we have been back several times
for different landlords).
|Investigation 14th January 2005 Ball
Inn Sheffield full investigation.
Investigation team Mick, Mike, Brenda, Gaz, Richard, Cheryl,
Katy, David, Pen, Gaz(Ivan) and Joe.
When we first entered the property myself and Gaz went
around the property taking temperatures and Emf readings
(Base line tests)
We decided to split up into two groups Group one being
Mick, Brenda, Pen , Joe , Gaz (Ivan), Eileen, Richard (landlord)
and his wife Amy. Group two being Richard, Cheryl, Gaz,
Katy, David, and Mike
Trigger objects were setup on each floor and a EVP setup
in the bar area.
Team one was to go down stairs in the cellar and team two
was to take the upstairs.
Around 12am Team 1 in the cellar first part of the night
was sat in a vigil. On investigation of the film footage
various orbs were found to be seen. I informed the Landlord
and his wife about what we were going to be doing and what
equipment we used. During the vigil the beer pumps started
which spooked most of the people. Brenda picked up on a
little girl playing in the cellar the little girl was from
the Victorian era because of the way she was dressed. During
this time the temperature dropped around 4 deg the little
girl was around 6 or 7 years of age. Again the video camera
would go out of focus as if trying to focus on things we
cannot see. She also picked up on a tall man with a leather
type apron who was working with a large metal type shutter
device that slided up and down. Believed to be a fire or
furnace. Brenda also picked up on a young woman with stomach
problems (dysentery) named Sybil aged around 18 or 19 possibly
pregnant. Gaz (Ivan told us later he was getting a strange
sensation in his legs). Also a smells of burning or cooking
something possibly burning flesh was witnessed in the cellar.
The little girl is believed to be the daughter of the man
working the cellar, not thought to be wealthy people as
the little girl was wearing old type boots and hand me down
Upstairs a old lady was picked up on with arthritis. We
decided to sit in a circle and pick up on any spirits present.
While in the circle a old lady was picked up with a cancer
condition. Brenda also picked up on another young woman
this one being more recent to todays history. This person
was thought to have committed suicide by hanging her self,
thought to be around the 1930's. Richard could not recall
anyone ever being told about this incident but later research
we found this to be correct. The girl had dark hair not
that pretty around 30 year old believe to still pace around
upstairs. Believed to have died on the original staircase.
Brenda also picked up on other entities down stairs. Orbs
also witnessed up stairs.
The last hour of the investigation was conducted by all
members in the back bar room.
2 REPORT FOR FRIDAY 14TH JANUARY
THE BALL INN, GRIMESTHORPE, SHEFFIELD
TEAM 2( MIKE,GAZ,RICHARD,CHERYL KATIE AND DAVE.)
Team 2 started their investigation at a little after 12
midnight and proceeded to their investigation areas on the
upstairs floor of the house (above the bar.) Trigger items
had been set into place in the upstairs and downstairs areas
prior to the investigation. The upstairs investigation took
place in 3 rooms, the 2 living rooms (previously 1 room
but had a partitioning wall put in.) and also a smaller
room to the rear which had an ironing board in. Firstly
the whole team scouted around the whole area taking photos,
emf readings and some video footage. At this point Mike
remarked to Richard that he was feeling somebody had been
hung although not in the area where they were. After looking
around they broke into 3 smaller groups to cover all 3 rooms.
There was a stronger sense of presence in the larger living
room area, although no uneasy or eerie presence was felt(this
does not mean there was no presence here just that in this
case the presence was a happy and playful one as not all
spirit experiences are scary or unnerving.) Although the
whole team did not experience any great disturbances in
the upper area, there was a presence felt by Mike in the
smaller room where the ironing board was. Mike felt the
presence of a small girl with shoulder length dark hair
although this wasn't an uncomfortable experience, Mike felt
that she did not want to be in the room but wanted her presence
to be known. The name of Catherine was given. The team joined
together from the 3 smaller groups to again check all rooms.
The whole team on two occasions experienced interference
and beeping on the walkie talkies they were carrying, (they
checked with the other team who had also experienced problems
with their equipment and had definitely not tried to contact
them). At 1-30am team 2 proceeded down stairs to change
with team 1 and investigate the lower cellar areas. From
the moment they entered the cellar areas there was a much
stronger sense of presence and again this was not a uneasy
presence. The small room towards the bottom corner of the
cellar containing the boiler was the first place they experienced
activity. Mike felt a coldness around himself in the corner
of the room which was also experienced by Gary. The Emf
meter Mike was carrying was going crazy with activity around
him, (it has to be said that in this room there was strong
readings of Emf in the ceiling and floor of this room due
to electrics and piping but at the time of activity around
Mike he was not near any of the wires or pipes). Photos
of the area were taken which will be studied and results
posted. The next activity was witnessed by Dave and Mike
as they walked through the downstairs corridor leading to
the barrel room, there was a sound of someone behind them
and a brushing against the wall. When the whole team joined
up again in the barrel room they experienced the most activity.
They experienced lots of movement around the entrance and
doorway to the barrel room, also various team members felt
a brushing against them, there was a distinctive sound of
breathing heard by all the team members, this sound was
not created by any of the team members. Once more during
their investigation downstairs there was activity on the
walkie talkies. They all experienced an unpleasant smell
of either sewerage or excrement...Mike also experienced
a smell of burning meat similar to burning pork.
Afterwards Richard (the manager) confirmed that the spirit
of an elderly man had been seen at the bar. He also said
that a serving girl in her 20's had collapsed suddenly one
night after the pub closed and fell into the open fire and
died. Her spirit has been sighted on several occasions and
the locals call her 'Aunt Sally'.
We concluded that although there is a lot of activity in
the pub, generally there is a very good atmosphere. Any
spirits there seem to be ones that have been happy there
or those that have left their imprint on time. Either way
the building is a very safe and good place to live and work.
The Base line tests shows no change in conditions in any
room except for temperature drop due to the heating being
turned off. Nothing found on the EVP and ony one of the
trigger objects moved which was in the cellar.
(Trigger objects were 2 coins on a piece of paper drawn
around and checked for movement after the investigation).
|This was a very friendly Pub with very friendly Hosts BIG
THANK YOU TO RICHARD AND AMY.
