The dark shadowy corridors, industrial machinery and huge drying sheds makes this location creepy even in daylight. In the height of production Bursledon Brickworks near Southampton was producing 32 million bricks a year and provided extensive local employment for around 180 people but then in the Twentieth Century the old brickworks fell into a state of dereliction and were in danger of disappearing altogether.
For those working in the Brickworks, life was hard; long days starting at 7am in 40 degree heat. Many men could not even last a week. We know young children would have been used for some of the nimble work amongst the machinery, and we have recorded EVPs of children's voices. Investigators may have even sighted previous workers in the many shadows of the steam engine machinery. Join us as we attempt to find out who still remains at this amazing location from all those years ago.
Join Dark Encounters as we carry out a comprehensive paranormal investigation of the site. You will get to investigate for yourselves; setting up experiments, carrying out the experiments and recording your observations. So whether it is a lone vigil in a dark corridor, EVP experiments in one of the kilns, or Dowsing experiments in the Drying Sheds you will be in the heart of the action. At the beginning of your evening you will have a briefing on ghost hunting techniques and the plan for the evening. Then you will split into smaller groups to carry out the investigation. The teams will be led by experienced investigators who will guide you to the correct areas and how to set up the experiments. There will be regular refreshment breaks and then at the end of the evening all teams will have a debriefing as we report the evidence recorded. We will be looking for correlations of phenomena between the groups and previous investigations we have carried out at the location - all recorded in the Casebook of Dark Encounters from 20 years.
