TO INVESTIGATIONS PAGE
Privilege nightclub a laptop dance club in Scarborough, Reports of a black shadow and stuff going missing. We had no knowledge of this before our investigation.
A four storey Georgian building,furthest we found in the records after investigation was 1795 then named The Plough Inn although there was much building work taken place in the area in the 1750's, also up until 1881 the Plough also had a Livery to the rear, Coach and Horses operated from the Plough Inn up to at least 1832, the coach was called the Prince Blucher and traveled to and from the Plough every morning except Sundays too Sheffield via Malton, York, Tadcaster, Leeds before arriving in Sheffield. The original building was much longer than the present one. As in 1881 the Plough Hotel as it had become known was under reconstruction, Scarborough born architect David Petch was responsible for the redesign.
We went along to do base line tests in the daytime.
Basement we got a reading of 3 on the E.M.F meter after Angie (our psychic) had said she could see a man lay in the corner in a drunken stupor, the rest of the cellar we get 0 readings for.
Bar Area, Dancefloor and Seating Areas we didn't get any readings in here although Angie said she could see a black shadow walking around, this was confirmed by Ant the owner. Angie also asked Ant why no-one would sit for long in a certain seat, Ant smiled and said people always feel strange in that seat and get up and move.
First Floor we went into the big kitchen and got no readings the same in the office, also there was a smaller kitchen once in there Angie had said there had been a lot of activity in here, she could hear banging she could also the black shadow in here aswell, she turned to Ant and told him it was the shadow that was responsible for leaving the fridge door open, Ant confirmed this happened a lot, we got a reading of 3 on E.M.F. On the same level was the changing rooms inside the E.M.F went to between a 3and4 in here Angie detected a spirit named Margaret known as Marg, she was a cleaner to this property at one time, she claimed it was her who made the girls makeup and other stuff go missing as she didn't like the room messy. Ant confirmed the girls always complained about makeup and other stuff disappearing.
Second Floor living area the whole level was clear except for one bedroom were once again the black shadow passed and went to the upper level of the building 0 readings on E.M.F.
Third Floor a disused part of the building containing 5 rooms all doors were still numbered from when it was a hotel, the shadow went into one room were our E.M.F went to a 4, it was believed this was the room a man named Jack had stayed, an alcoholic and a man with a mean nasty streak who disliked women, this man was the one who was seen as the black shadow.
Present for night investigation Angie and Mark, also present Ant the owner of Privilege and Kev the manager also several members of staff who we cant name.
On the night we started of placing a camcorder in the basement and a motion sensor, trigger objects in the changing rooms, trigger objects in the kitchen,
we went to the top floor were Angie had picked up on two spirit children in one of the rooms, A little boy called Thomas aged roughly at 5yrs and a girl called Sarah aged roughly at 7or8 yrs old.
Whilst holding the camcorder using nightshot we could see through the viewfinder a little girl with pigtails, inviting each of the staff to come and view the camcorder everyone claimed to be able to see the little girl.
We spent some more time up here going in each of the rooms, Ang turned to Kev and said that in one of the rooms a lady had lost her baby through a miscarriage and someone would experience a sadness in that room. When we entered that room, one female member of staff became emotional and said she actually felt like a chid had been lost in here.
We moved down a level everyone went into the living room except Ang, Ant and Kev who entered another room where all three witnessed a white glow in the shape of a figure, Mark was called in to take photos.
When we went down a level one of the trigger objects had moved in the changing room. Whilst we all stood and sat still talking in general, a coathanger on a rail started to sway from side to side rotating 90degrees everyone present witnessed this, on replaying the camcorder what is believed to be an Orb floated away from the coathanger as it stopped still.
After this Mark and Kev went to the ground floor where whilst talking both witnessed an outline of the man in the seat.
