[REDACTED] Address:

Report #851 – Personal Experience Report by Erin Kirby

The second set of tours for [REDACTED] at [REDACTED] began at 7:30 PM.

I went as a sweeper for two tours led by Alan.

Due to the amount of people, it was difficult to isolate any activity at the time within the main building.

After Alan’s second tour, the two of us decided to head to the Caretaker’s house due to earlier reports of it being active as well as having less foot traffic. While there, I thought I heard what sounded like footsteps coming from the second floor.
We also both heard what sounded like a vocalization coming from the dining and kitchen area.

Later, during teardown, Richard looked into the occurrence, along with Brad and Alan, and we all determined that the sounds I heard were due to a rattling window pane from the wind.

The vocalization does not appear to have an explanation.

Report #855 – Datalogger Analysis by Brad Bradley

Tablet, 2nd floor, [REDACTED] side
– Magnetometer indicated multiple small deflections on all axes over the entire surveillance period. These were not indicated by the magnetometer in the EDI. This could be due to a lack of sensitivity of the EDI magnetometer.

Phone, 2nd floor, cottage
– Accelerometer indicated 3 large deflections on all three axes and do not match readings taken when doors were slammed by us upon entering and exiting the cottage.
