This was a small separate tunnel with a deep shaft at the end, we were able to stand over this shaft as it was covered in metal grid flooring, we were informed that this shaft went approx 200 mtrs down.
To get to this area we had a little ride on a cart, to the amusement of the team. At the entrance to the tunnel John R felt great pressure and a crushing feeling
but didn’t think it was linked to a cave-in. David again started calling out and again we all introduced ourselves to any possible spirit. David also tried knocking and asking them to copy.
John R picked up on the name Andrew or Andrews (possible first name or surname) and then a Benjamin. A rumbling sound was heard a couple of times coming from a lower shaft.
Julie's voice recorder suddenly started playing the previous vigil, she had not touched any of the buttons, she could not turn it off, only by removing the batteries did it stop. When replacing them the recorder was fine.
We then did a human pendulum with Caroline in the middle of the circle. Debbie got the name Tom or Thomas. John W also got the name Henry. Various questions were asked, Karen asked if there were others that had died with this spirit, the reply was yes, also that they did not pass over straight away. Debbie noticed that Caroline’s face appeared to be changing and becoming older.
When asked Caroline said she was sensing that they were frightened. John R then enquired if the workers were taken down in a bucket/cage type system, and were told most probably. It then transpired that there had been an accident involving this when the cabling/chain of the winch broke which sent men tumbling down the shaft, John R thought it was what he was picking up at the entrance to the tunnel.
In a paranormal sense the evening had been a quiet one and not as active as hoped. Nevertheless an enjoyable night was had by all. Hopefully a return would be recommended in the future.
Many thanks and our appreciation must go to the expert cavers/rescue team for making it an enjoyable experience all of which was done in their spare time. We hope you enjoyed it too.
