Paranation are delighted to bring you an evening of paranormal investigation at The Bursledon Brickworks which is the last surviving example of a steam-powered brickworks in Britain
Bursledon employed up to 180 people ranging from boys as young as 8 to men in their 60s. The works would have been dark and cold, heated only by the kilns and it is reported that a number of workers died here whilst earning their livelihood.
The Brickworks was founded in 1897 by the Ashby family, whose innovations in machinery and kiln design and implementation of mass production methods enabled the site to produce more than 20 million bricks a year at peak production.
The Brickworks was closed in 1974 due to a reduction in the clay quality and supply. The site was purchased by the Hampshire Buildings Preservation Trust and was awarded listed status. The buildings on the northern side have been replaced by the NATS, Air Traffic Control Centre, but the southern site still remains.
We have never investigated the brickworks before but the following has been reported activity at this amazing location include:
Sound of voices
Knocking on demand
The presence of dark figures
Odd lights have been seen
A worker fell asleep in the kiln as a result of seeking out warmth and became locked in, dying the following day when the kiln was lit. Maybe his ghost haunts the brickworks?
Steeped in history I'm sure this haunted venue will be an evening we won't forget again in a hurry!!
The evening will consist of a short introductory talk and demonstrations of our equipment, which you will be able to use throughout the evening, refreshments and comfort break. Smoking is permitted outside in the designated area. We will then proceed with a lit walk around the museum.
Our paranormal investigating will then commence with various paranormal experiments, group vigils, smaller vigils for the brave, throughout the evening.
Where To Meet
There will be a team member at the front welcoming guests.
