Heartlands Ghost Haunted
Paranormal investigation inspires a whole week of activities at Cornwall’s newest visitor attraction and World Heritage Site Gateway
Strange audio recordings taken at Heartlands during a private paranormal investigation in the former tin mine last month have today been released to the public.
Investigators G.H.O.S.T.UK uncovered a number of electronic voice phenomena (EVP) and other strange noises after leaving recording equipment running in Robinson’s Shaft engine house, visitor centre, mining exhibitions and the Red River Cafe (once the Carpenter’s Workshop) at the 19 acre attraction.
Voices include a male stating “Go and ask them... where the keys?” in a strong Cornish accent, a male and female voice saying “Alright? Bobbin’ Big Head!” in the Red River Cafe and most alarmingly to the team, a male voice saying “Ghost is in there” in the Visitor Centre. Other noises included bangs, knocks, the sound of a horn in the engine house and the mentioning of names.
Heartlands contacted the investigators after staff and visitors had reported feeling uneasy in various areas of the heritage buildings, but were shocked at just how many EVPs were recorded.
Heartlands and G.H.O.S.T. UK have now released a YouTube clip of the original investigation and are inviting members of the public to take part in new paranormal explorations on two exclusive evenings – Saturday 27 October and Saturday 3 November 2012. With space limited to 30 on each night, visitors will discover more about techniques used by paranormal experts and mediums while taking part in their own investigation.
The paranormal evenings are part of a week of events at Heartlands Ghost Haunted which runs from 27 October – 4 November. Other activities include Spooky Disco for kids, a film screening of Scream the movie, pumpkin carving, have-a-go eerie archery, scary mask making and more.
Kate Turnbull, Marketing Manager of Heartlands said:
“After comments from visitors and staff about strange encounters in the heritage buildings, we decided to get a team in to check things out with some surprising results.
"There is something for everyone within our week of spooky activities, whether it’s attending a paranormal investigation, dressing up in a Scream mask and coming to our cinema night or bringing the children along for a bit of scary dancing at the spooky disco!”
