What I found interesting with this sample was the fact the recorder was twenty feet away yet a voice can be heard at the end of the medium speaking which triggers 'voice pop' - a phenomena only caused with a projected sound next to the microphones such as this voice sample which causes the distinctive 'pop'. The words can be heard from 15 seconds. There is no other explanation except an unseen voice triggering the microphone pop.
This next EVP is of a child which says 'do you want to come out to play'. The full apparition of a child was seem in the 1970's by the previous owner of the Hall 'Irene Francis' who stated the clearly defined shape of a child was seen running through a wall in the old dining room, the area the child ran into was once a doorway which had been walled up many years before. I found this EVP and the EVP that followed remarkable given I was in the room and no one was speaking except the male medium.
Despite the earlier EVP recording of a female saying 'help me', the later EVP's of children appears to be very light hearted, clearly spirit children don't go to bed early!. The situation with this sample is it's close to the end of the seance, however a female guest at the table states she is feeling unwell with nausea. Only she and the medium spoke at this point but a child can be heard laughing immediately after the guest said yes to the question was she feeling nausea. What follows is what sounds like children playing, the words are inaudible but clearly children. There is a difference between the voices of the female guest and the male medium. No other people spoke throughout this seance and none of the EVP sample linked here could be heard at the time. The female guest recovered from her sudden nausea a few minutes later.
The venue is of course steeped in history but has always been a family residence therefore it felt warm and inviting. I did witness a number of paranormal events during my seven hours there which included being pushed in the back in a bedroom. I asked the other team members to take a photo due to feeling a constant pressure behind me, the following photo was taken at this time which shows a mist not seen during that time and appears to be a shape of a cat.
The investigation was was in a controlled environment and all the samples of EVP were recorded by myself, no one else was involved with them. I can assure you that no one was more surprised than I was when I heard the voices that were certainly not heard when the recordings were made.
I have to conclude that with this investigation 90% of the EVP's were interacting with human speaking, either the Medium or the poor lass who felt ill during the seance. This completely rules out my own theory of the fabric retaining data and more of a 'spirit hands on'. There may well be some substance in my other theory of 'spirit time slices' and 'other multiple dimensions' allowing a spirit(s) to cross in our own dimension for brief periods before travelling back. I recorded all the EVP in a controlled area which was free of unwanted noises and in the early hours.
Wincham Hall can be considered as active, paranormal activity yes, haunted it may well be.
