There 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. Past psychic reports have picked up a feeling of negative energy in many parts of the building including the bell tower, attic, the underground tunnels leading to the disused shooting range and the boiler room. The remainder of the paranormal activity out-with these areas has been reported as being positive although appearing to be physical in nature.
