Haunted Shed

The Haunted Shed by A Kasady

This was an interesting little investigation. We received a call from a family from the north of England claiming that there was a spirit haunting their garden shed! Far be it for the team to ignore the pleas of a distressed family myself and the teams spiritualist medium Annabel Keogh jumped into a car and made our way to this supposed shed of terror!

The family claim that they often find things of theirs missing from the shed only to turn up a few days later in a different place to where it was originally stored. They also say that they have woken in the night to hear banging coming from the shed AND awoke to find the light going switching on and off. The final straw came when their 6-year-old daughter claimed to have seen an old man looking out of the shed window at her while she was playing in the garden. The family could take no more and called us.

Haunting AnnI decided that as the investigation was in such a small location that it was only Annabel and myself that were needed. We turned up at the house questioned the family about any other happenings that may have occurred in other parts of the house but there were none. All the paranormal phenomena seemed to be directed straight at the shed.

This was something I had never come across before in the previous three years of the team’s existence so I was genuinely excited by what we might find during this ‘low key’ investigation.

I only brought the bear minimum of equipment with me. I decided that there would be no point in bringing along the temperature reader as this was going to be a cold night of November and due to there being electrical wiring in the shed the EMF reader would be rendered useless.

I set up a small video camera just outside the shed and hand another handheld on me. Annabel had the digital camera and was taking the stills photographs. Aside from a couple of small orbs nothing was caught on the stills to my disappointment.

Annabel began her reading and as soon as she began I thought I heard what sounded like a small ‘thump’ coming from the corner of the shed. I placed a Dictaphone in that corner should we pick any more sounds emanating from that area.

Annabel began asking the spirit for his name and why he was in this shed and hadn’t moved on. The spirit told Annabel that his name was Albert and he was the owner of the house before this family had moved in. He had suffered a stroke and died whilst working in his shed. He also Annabel that the shed was where he would spend most of his time pottering away; his shed was his pride and joy and when he passed on he decided that’s where he wanted to stay.

Haunted Shed ArronAs I stood there taking down all the information that Annabel was coming out with I felt what could only be described as a small gust of air blowing across my face. Now this could be attributed to the cold winds that were blowing outside if it hadn’t been for Annabel telling me that Alb had just brushed past me before I had a chance to mention anything.

It seemed Albert was sorry if he had scared the family at all but he was happy being in his shed and always liked to see the family having fun in the garden. He asked Annabel to see if it was okay if he could stay in the shed and promised he would try and not scare the family anymore.

Whilst I was recording Annabel with the handheld I picked up a small light anomaly that seemed to float around her head and then disappear. I called out to Albert to try and do that again and amazingly he did! I was pleased by this as it had all been recorded on camera. We asked him to move to some of the tools in the shed for us but alas nothing seemed to happen. We spent a few more hours around the shed apart from a few more orbs nothing. There also seemed to be nothing we managed to pick up on the Dictaphone aside from our own voices.

I informed the family of our findings and also told them about Albert’s request. They seemed happy to know what was exactly going on and agreed that as long as Albert was happy where he was and that he was no danger then they were more than happy to let Albert stay.

All in all not the most active of locations but certainly one of the more cheerful stories that I have been able to write about.

In many cases, human psychology plays a major role in ghost sightings. In chilling situations where ghosts are associated with a natural animal response may make the hair rise which could be mistaken for a chill. Illusions can be created by one by seeing an eerie figure. According to a poll conducted in 2005 by the Gallup Organization, about 32% of Americans believe in the existence of ghosts. Such a definition always makes it difficult to explain about the ghosts that tend to answer questions and those which foretell the future etc. Ghosts are often associated with haunting, which is, according to the Parapsychological Association, "the more or less regular occurrence of paranormal phenomena associated with a particular locality (especially a building) and usually attributed to the activities of a discarnate entity; the phenomena may include apparitions, poltergeist disturbances, cold drafts, sounds of steps and voices, and various odours. This definition is used commonly among all! There have been several doubts regarding the existence of the ghost and disputes too whether ghosts are just imaginations or part of objective existence.
