The History -
As you approach this building and contemplate the 4 floors with which this investigation will consist of fear will start to set in and that’s even before you enter the front door.
Floor 1 has a purpose built base room, toilets and kit area. The rest of the building is made up of offices, warehouse spare and attics.
Built in the early 1800#s to service the brewing industry in Burton the Block has seen quite a lot of history in its time. Housing both British and American troops during the 1940’s as part of the ongoing war effort.
It is rumoured that there were just over 3000 troops held here before a big operation ... who will you encounter? ......
There have been may reported incidents of paranormal activity within the building. Including people being pushed, children being both heard and seen. Lights smashing without any reason and footsteps being heard around the building.
It was a cold night with outside air temperature of 1 -
The second floor was two large open warehouse space that had chipboard building erected for the air soft gamers. There was also barrel and other items scattered around the areas. Above these areas was the loft area, again this was split into two separate areas. At one end there was a room called the red store.
Vigil One -
We formed a circle and conducted a watch and wait. It this time we had No responses to any of our questions, No activity on the K2 and no spikes on the Mel Meter. We heard no Tapping or anything else that we could not explain as the wind or influences from outside.
Vigil Two -
After a few minutes with no responses I called out to the spirits to give us a sign that they were with us. As soon as I started to talk the white mag light turn itself on. We ask for the spirits to turn off the light and also made sure that no one was near to the torch. The spirits turned the light off as soon as we requested it. We then asked for them to turn on the blue torch which they did and they turned this off at our request. We then asked for them to turn on the blue light if they were male and the white light if they were female. The blue light was turned on. We then asked the spirit to move towards the REM pod located just outside the door. This had no response apart from the the Mag lights being turned on.
We tried a few experiments in this room including rolling marbles across the floor and asking the spirits to roll back, talking to us but this had no responses. We did however have lots of taps when nobody was moving. We can see on the video evidence that there is nobody moving when some of the taps take place. We did however find that when you stepped on on of the BB pellets and crushed them that you get the same tapping noise.

Vigil Seven -
Hazel and another guest also thought they had seen a shadow figure walk directly in front of the video camera as the light was blocked out. I have studied the video at the point when Hazel mentions this and was not able to find any evidence on the video but we did have some light anomalies on the video. See video below.
We also had taps on a wall that Hazel was sat with her back to. This was done when I asked them to tap on that wall. We had this happen a few times on request. The biggest bang of the night came on an old oil drum, this scared three members of the group that were stood near it. There reaction can be seen on the video below. After studying the video I cant see how any of them could have banged the drum to make the bang as loud without being seen on the video. We have no explanation as to how or why this happened that we could put down as natural or man made.
This ended another fantastic night with spooky nights. While the night had active periods and very quite periods, was freezing cold it was a great investigation.
