[Experience] Activity When Not Searching

The HouseBetween the years of 2010 & 2012, I took a little break from paranormal research and Investigation. I had a fair few other topics I was heavily searching into which I felt were so much larger than the continued searching for spirit on location.

17th Jan 2015There have been many reports of past paranormal activity at The Pearce Institute in Glasgow. The apparition of a ghostly woman has been witnessed walking across the foyer for example. Lights have been reported in and around the location, as well as a tap that switches on by itself. The presence of a man has been reported in the main hall on a number of occasions. On one occasion, the caretaker reported hearing organ music coming from the hall, but the organ was in a decommissioned state and couldn’t be played!

Another apparition of a woman has been witnessed on the balcony above the main hall. The current caretaker has reported witnessing doors opening by themselves and often reports a feeling of uneasiness.
