Investigations and Evidence
Investigating an expansive array of locations from small privately-owned establishments to large stately historic buildings with the aid of spiritual methods and a selection of scientific equipment to validate any environmental variations. By keeping groups to a reasonable size which limits noise pollution allowing for better investigations and more able to hear activity such as footsteps, physical movement or audible disembodied voices. Every member that attends a night is a valued part of the investigation and help to validate or debunk experiences that may occur. We record every investigation on video recorded with handheld camcorders, CCTV and audio recorders which is sifted through for evidence and historical ties to validate evidence captured that is incorporated into reports that are supplied to the venue and shared with our members on our website as interactive reports
Over the years we have experienced many things of which the most common have proved to be doors closing, the sound of footsteps when all the team have been accountable for. Disembodied voices have been clearly heard as well as many voices of children and older age groups and accents have also been captured as electronic voice phenomena recorded on audio recorders not only in response to investigators but also when left in locked of areas. Members have been affected, suddenly feeling increasingly sick, angry and emotional.
By using both spiritual and scientific means we try to use one to corroborate the other and often refer to researched history after investigations to confirm evidence, with surprising results.
Ghostly figures have also been recorded on digital cameras along with our thermal imaging camera as
shown in this picture.
The pale blue image of a ghostly figure viewed as pale blue due to icy cold temperature whereas a living person would be viewed in yellows, red and orange as just captured on the left on the left.
This figure had been sensed standing and watching the team, however it was not witnessed with the naked eye
and only showed up on the thermal camera.
Shadow figures are often encountered on one occasion one was captured in a photograph that was taken.
Below a dark wearing a helmet can clearly be seen in a photo taken without flash, next to it is the same picture
taken with flash.
Notice how the head angle is more tilted in the second photo.
Many images can be debunked as falling temperatures creating mists of cold air, bugs and dust creating orbs, hair strands close the camera lenses creating anomalies.
More than just an investigative group Haunted Devon are an ever-expanding group of friends from all walks of life with just as varied beliefs and ideas from total believers in life after death, total sceptics and those amongst us with a more scientific approach considering the theory of entanglement and looking to quantum physics for answers but all sharing their passion to gather evidence. Social nights such as BBQ nights in the heart of Dartmoor, investigations with buffets and of course the Christmas buffet investigation all much enjoyed.
Here is a picture of the Haunted Devon team on the first paranormal investigating of Bitton House, Teignmouth.
