On July 10th, 2007 the group
investigated St. Clether's Chapel in Cornwall. The first thing
they did after initially checking the place and looking around
was to leave a Digital Audio Recorder running in the small
building which was then left whilst the group went for a pre-investigation
To ensure that nobody ventured
near to the building a series of notices were put up advising
people that the chapel was closed. This, along with the fact
that no footsteps on the nearby gravel path, voices or opening
gates or doors were heard during the time that the recorder
was left running and that it was set up late in the evening
when people would have been at home having dinner, leads us
to believe that during the entire time that we were not there
the chapel was empty and did not have a single visitor.
The day was sunny and calm.
Therefore, logically, all that should have been recorded was
silence bar the odd bird song. However, when the recording
was played back there was anything but silence...
So, the question is, just what
is causing these loud, prominent knocks and bangs? There was
no wind, the doors were securely closed and there were no
visitors to the chapel whilst we were gone.
