(air raid siren screaming) (machine guns popping and people screaming) (eerie music) We enter this world knowing only life yet death always occurs. Using some of the most up-to-date scientific equipment we endeavour to gather evidence that there is life after death. These are our investigations into the mysterious ways of the paranormal. Whatever you’ve seen whatever you’ve heard whatever you believe there is more to this world. There is the Ghost Dimension. Hello and welcome, this cosy social club in Liverpool has more going on here than the acts performing on this stage. It has a ghost who doesn’t seem to be shy about putting on a show for members of the club. This is Walton Social Club and this is Ghost Dimension. The location we are investigating tonight has survived the devastating bomb attacks of World War II and it still stands proud to this very day. The street that the club is on was bombed during the Second Word War and it’s believed that there were many tragic casualties from the bombing raid. Many people lost their lives during the war including both women and children and some of those casualties would have found themselves here in the safety of the club. This club has been in existence since 1906 but was originally a house dating back to around 1875 which would have had one of its local wealthy ship magnets as its owner. Perhaps someone from that tragic time still comes in visitation searching for a long lost friend or family member, and perhaps even just for the entertainment. There has been a man witnessed in various areas of this building and appears to show himself as a ghostly solid entity. A young boy was once witnessed having a conversation with this man by a couple of relatives and they swear they couldn’t see anyone. Yet the boy seemed to be having a very interesting chat with a ghostly man. (eerie calling) Is he one of the previous members at this location or someone else? What we need to find out is what his connection is to the club. They bombed this all yeah like, nowadays concrete buildings are only designed really to last 50 to 60 years so this one being 200 years old you’re bound to have creaking in the floor boards, a bit of spoiling inside the concrete which means like it’s basically expanding and breaking off. That could explain some knocks and bangs when people aren’t around and yeah, so with the age it’s bound to happen but I s’pose there are incidences where people have heard something that’s, I suppose you could say not really made by the building but I s’pose if you don’t have an understanding of it it could seem a lot more creepier than it actually is. Many locations where people consume alcohol appear to have a ghostly tale or two. But could all of them be true? With someone’s who’s drunk, you have to take their facts with a pinch of salt. The same things with kids, you have to take them with a pinch of salt because you don’t know if your can 100% believe believe it. If it was a sober adult who gave me, who said I seem something I’d be a bit more like, okay I suppose you need to look into that claim a little bit more. So what’s on the bill tonight? Could we see the gentlemen that the young boy talked to or will we catch anything moving. Whatever happens tonight we hope that the spirit will be sociable towards us and give us a show to remember. Walton Social Club, fantastic looking building. It’s very American, looks very American do you not recon? It does, and it also to me, looks like it wouldn’t look strange in a Harry Potter set. That is true. It looks like it just came straight out of one. That’s true, what do you think when you first walked in? When I first walk into this building you know that it’s never been investigated before by anybody because it screams haunted at ya. Yeah, it does.
It does, and I feel as we investigate tonight in this cosy building, maybe just maybe we may come into contact with one of the spirits that’s reported to haunt here. There’s children’s spirits, there’s old spirits, there’s all sorts of different types of spirits as well as the ones behind the bar. Yeah, there is and it’s, you know, it’s fantastic, the fact that it’s never been investigated before it opens the floodgates to those spirits coming through– It does because we’ll open the intrigue, what is it, what’s this gadget, never seen anything like it before. Exactly, well this road was bombed wasn’t it? Yeah.
In World War II. And one possibly. So those spirits that were killed you know, they could walk in and they could not even know they’re dead. Well that’s true because this place was a house before. It was yeah. So we don’t know who’s been here before, only that it’s over 100 years old. Yeah. There’s history, not just in this location but the entire area. Exactly, so you know, I think we’re in for a good night. I think we are too. Already I can hear noises coming from over there. Let’s go and investigate then. So I think we should go and grab the equipment and get on.
Let’s do it, come on then. Ghost Dimension. Walton Social Club has multiple reported hauntings and no paranormal investigation has ever taken place here. So will our presence and experiments tonight entice its ghostly residents to make contact? So this is a place where lots and lots of people have come since it’s been a social club. People have come, they’ve died, not necessarily here but still maybe wanting to come back to where they’ve got fond memories so somebody that died last week could still be coming here, doesn’t have to be way back in history, it could just be you know, a few days, a few weeks, a few months ago. And they’re just coming back to where they’ve enjoyed themselves. With the club never being investigated before we split onto each level to maximise our chances of capturing something paranormal. Can you affect my equipment over there on that table? Oh, already noise in here. There is a ticking clock, I think it’s there. Yeah, there’s a ticking clock somewhere, oh there it is. So if you hear tick, tick, tick, tick, that’s what it is, it’s nothing paranormal. Can you affect my REM Pod, no sorry not my REM Pod, my REM Pod’s over there. Can you affect my K2 metre? Now apparently there was man and he was called Stan, and he used to used sit over here where the REM Pod is and he passed away. Stan, are you here? Wow, what was that okay. That came from over here. Did I get the chair wrong, was it over here? Somewhere around here? Stan the man are you there? Right got a load of equipment, I’m gonna get this set up first and then I’ll get the investigation of this basement started. (single long beeping sound) What the hell was that? I heard, I literally heard something there. On review of the footage from this documentary we appear to have to caught the following voice which seems to be vocalising itself and asking me to leave, but in a disrespectful manner, and if you’re easily offended please mute your sound now and look away. I get the investigation off this basement started. (muffled vocalising) I get the investigation of this basement started. (muffled vocalising) At this point of the investigation it was all clear who made this disembodied voice, and perhaps our presence had heightened the activity of some of the ghostly spirits residing here. Hi heard, I literally heard something there. It came from down here. (footsteps clacking on stairs) I’ll put this equipment down on this table just while I check. Hello, is anybody there? No way, I heard something down here. (water running) Okay so I am in the function room of Walton Social Club in Liverpool and we have a few pieces of kit out that there’s a REM there. There’s a REM over on the stage and an EDI metre. I’ve also got a voice recorder with me so, and I’ll turn that off. We shall try for EVP. Now we’ve just been given a lot more information and apparently stuff’s happened in here. Somebody’s been seen moving around the building moving a gentleman. And once upon a time there were a lot of snooker tables in here and apparently when some guys were playing snooker one of them was just about to bend down and take the shot and they saw a man sat in a chair up here somewhere and he had come out of nowhere and it was enough to freak the guys out and when other people came up to check out who this fellow was he was gone. So it’s a bit of a mystery as to who he was. So we’re gonna see if we can find out. Okay, must admit this part of the bar has a different feel. I don’t know if it’s because more people have walked through it, maybe because when it was a house obviously this would have been the, wow. Our plan appeared to be working. With every area of the location covered it was forcing whatever was haunting here out of hiding and straight into our investigation. Maybe because when it was a house obviously this would have been the (banging) woo, (banging) woo You’re bound to have creaking in the floorboards a bit of spoil inside the concrete which means like it’s basically expanding and breakin’ off. With Devante believing the noises could be created by the building itself was what I just heard paranormal or natural? Whatever it was I couldn’t wait to find out more. What the hell was that? It was noise coming from up there then. Okay, yeah, well, like I was saying before when this was a house this would have been like the main living quarters. So whether there’s a different feel because it’s seen more spirits, it seen more personalities along the years, you know, witnessed, it’s witnessed two world wars so there’s people potentially comin’ in that’s injured and died in here. There’s probably some don’t even know that they’re passed one, and that’s what happened here, it’d be interested to find out tonight. I stand here and I gonna call out. Okay can you finish this knock? (knuckles wrapping on wood) Now I’m gonna get the equipment locked off and there’s a voice I’ve heard already. I’m gonna get the equipment set up and see if anything happens. We’ve got REM Pods and I’ve got the Ovilus The REM Pods are here, I’ll get these settled right now. I’m gonna rest this camera here while I set these up. I’ve gotta get this one over here on the floor, so if anything comes through this door I’m gonna get action on the REM Pod. It’s got its own magnetic field and that’ll alarm. We’ve got another one which I’m gonna pop on the stairs which I will put over here. I’ll just get the aerial out. If anything comes near, through the stairs or down the stairs that’s gonna alarm. I’ve also got the Ovilus and if you switch the Ovilus on we’ll stick that over here. That can be manipulated by spirits. If anybody is here and wants to communicate with us they can communicate via the Ovilus and manipulate the words onto the screen. I’m gonna flick the camera into infra red, and start the investigation. Just wanna try this seeing as my voice recorder isn’t working. I’m just gonna see if maybe captured an audio on the camera. If there’s anybody here at all, (machine clicking) and there you go, thank you. Thank you so much, I just got the chills. Can you step away from that now please? Oh, gosh, well I’ve got seriously bad chills. Really feels electric in here. Can you step away from that please? It’s really good, I’m glad you know how to use it now but I’d like you to move away from it you would? Okay just thought I heard somebody behind me. Ghost Dimension. It was becoming clear that the could be something lurking in the shadows at Walton Social Club. And Paul had communication directly with the REM Pods. But who or what was starting to make contact with our team? (machine clicking) Shine a light, aww, I just got ice cold down my back then. Oh, it felt like somebody has run a freezing cold hand down my back. It’s absolutely ice. I’m gonna gonna move that EDI mixer ’cause I’m pretty sure the temperature’s gonna be even colder over here. And that REM just stopped for a second, and just see what we’ve got going there. So I got the 59.1 at the moment, fluctuating. Thank you, wow that was very weird. That was really really weird. It’s absolutely Baltic in here. Tell me your name, affect my equipment. Can you affect this piece of equipment in my hand? It goes green for good and red for bad. The periscope had instantly reacted to my question, however it wasn’t until the edit we could actually hear a female voice that appears to say yes as the light comes on. Can you affect this piece of equipment in my hand? It goes green for good. Can you affect this piece of equipment in my hand? It goes green for good. Perhaps this was one of the regular patrons who frequented this location or indeed could it be one of the many souls who lost their lives during the war and still visited this building to this very day. It’s nothing by good and that’s what I like. I comin’ into a place and feeling the good. I just need to find out how you passed, was it a bomb? Yeah, I asked when I said bomb there was a clear bang. Are you a female? Okay is anybody in here? That’s with me, around, wooooow! That sounded like the door here. (door handle clacking) it’s not opening, maybe it’s locked. If that was you then, that just did that noise can you use your voice or speak through the (synthesised vocalising) Veronica, thank you I was gonna say speak through this device, Veronica. Is your name Veronica, am I dealing with a Veronica? (muffled vocalising) Although, although Veronica although. What are you trying to tell me Veronica? I’ve never ever had the word Veronica ever come through the Ovilus so I’m believing that it could be a spirit manipulating this device. Perhaps Veronica was the same spirit Bec’s was encountering upstairs. Seems to be moving all over of this basement. There’s things making noises and sounds. I heard like a mmmmmm then. There was a hmmmmm. If that’s you that’s down here with me making these noises, make something move in front of the camera, show yourself to me and give me a sign you are here. Light one of these devices. If your name’s Veronica come forward Veronica. I now would start to communicate with another spirit who seemed to have died in the war. Was this spirit connected in any way to Veronica? Is your name Thomas, Thomas, or Arthur? The reason why I’m asking Thomas or Arthur was because when I found out it was a 16 year old boy who died in the war those were the two names that came into mind and Paul’s always saying if a name comes in the mind say it. Thomas, Arthur, were you friends? Wow, okay. Can you knock on something as well as this equipment going off, can you knock? Yes, after three, a massive bang. One, two, three. Bigger, we’ll just spin the camera round. A bigger bang guys, I want a bigger bang. A bit more evidence. I’m gonna go back over here. Come on we want more evidence, we want more bangs. Hello, Thomas, Arthur, Arthur. Yet again as I feel I’m in direct contact with a spirit entity. As I call him by name one appears to respond with what I believe is a reply of, hello. Arthur. Arthur. Arthur. I believe that Arthur and Veronica could have known each other in life and it was clear they are still together in the after life. All I can say is you know when you’re cold but it’s cold to the bone, you’re that cold it actually goes down to your bone. So the temperature can be steady and ambient in one place but you are freezing and that’s how it feels at the moment. That is not giving me a justifiable indication of how cold it is right now. Because that, would say it’s not that cold at 59.0 to .1 when it’s absolutely ooh! I just heard a voice. It sounded like somebody was agreeing with me ’cause it was like, mmm. I hope the audio caught that then. Are you the gentleman that’s been seen in this room? If you are can you set that device off again if you’re the man that’s been seen by different people. Did you scare a couple of young men off There’s the handle. (door handle clacking) It’s not opening that’s all. Oh my god there is so much going on here. Audible noises, this has now said squeeze. This is just immense. I wouldn’t have expected the amount of responses down here that we’ve got already. What the hell, stick that there. That was down there by the bay drop. Can you make that noise again if that was you? Can you tap on one of those things, maybe the taps on the this which looks like a sink. Can you tap on that sink? Tap on that sink again. Sure I heard it then. Is anybody here? There seems to be, I’m just gonna have to turn my light off and I walk over here, seems to be some sort of something beyond this wall. There’s a lot of, I don’t know what that is that. There’s a tunnel behind the wall. There’s something else beyond this wall. Okay really, now’s to find out what that was in minute. (synthesised voice vocalising) Hug he said and then highway. Wow, okay I just saw that and we just missed it on the camera. That handle, I’m telling you it moved, it moved. That handle moved man, okay. That was over there and it moved. Ghost Dimension. Half way through and it’s not disappointing. The equipment is going off. Yeah, knocks, bangs.
Noises. Yeah. Things that we can’t yet explain. There’s nothing here that should be setting of any of the equipment, especially the Ovilus device, that shouldn’t be going off with these words. And these things seem to be relevant to this location. Yeah, I agree, and also as we’re walking around this location do you not think it’s got a look of the Winchester Mansion? It has hasn’t it?
Hasn’t it? From the outside.
The outside, yeah. And the inside is very much what you would expect to see there, it’s strange. Strange, I’ve been thinking about that as we were walking around and as I’ve been investigating different rooms and stuff. It’s quite cool. It really is quite good. But the investigation side of this place, because we’ve sparked the interest of the spirits it definitely coming out to check out what we’re doing. Yeah. And to see if there’s any way they can interact with our equipment. Maybe it’s because the first time this place has ever been investigated and these spirits don’t know what this stuff is. Maybe they don’t know they’re dead. And maybe that’s the reason that the checkin’ us out because ey yeah, what are you doing? What’s the camera doing? So many spirits have come through here and travelled around, especially this room. Yeah, it’s quite interesting. They’re coming round and they’re passed. Well yeah apparently that over there that’s the widow’s corner and then they passed around and they end up in the corner over there and that’s when they know their time’s up basically. It’s quite funny, funny little story. Quirky little place isn’t it? It is and we’ve so much to investigate should we head back off. Yes definitely, like it, let’s do it right now. Come on. As the activity appears to be forced out with our presence fully around the building we split back into lone vigils and attempt to make further contact with the spirits haunting here. So I have taken upstairs of the Social Club. I’ve got a REM on the stage which just before I started filming and I put it down went over there to put the other REM up which I’ll show you now. It went off on the stage. The other REM is here, I don’t wanna get too close ’cause it’ll go off, the other REM’s there and I also have with me an Ovilus which I’m just gonna put it on and it’ll say dictionary mode. [Synthesised Voice] Dictionary mode. And we’ll get going. I’m gonna spin you around so you can see what I can see. What the hell was that? Once again within moments of starting the investigation a clear audible voice is captured on the camera audio. I’m gonna spin you around so you can see what I can see. (muffled synthesised noise) What the hell was that? What I can see. (muffled synthesised noise) What the hell was that? What I can see. (muffled synthesised noise) What the hell was that? Was this the voice of someone sobbing from losing a loved one during the war and would they make even further contact as the night continues. A voice that went oooooo like a ghost, like what you’d expect a ghost to do. Was that you, are you connected to the highway? (muffled synthesised noise) What the hell? Hole, the hole in the wall, can you see that? Let’s have a look. Sheee, are you from the hole in the wall and is your name Veronica? Are you in here Veronica? It’s just back isn’t it, the door doesn’t move. As soon as I went over to that hole in the wall. (muffled synthesised noise) Loud it said. Soon as I went over to the hole in the wall it all seemed to just like, go, like mad. Maybe (muffled speaking) maybe there was something connected to that hole in wall that’s around here. So now I’m now in the main bar area of the Social Club. It’s pitch black in here. I’ll just give you a little tour of the place. I’ll turn this around so you can see what’s going on. Let’s see how it looks, been a lot of stuff reported in here including the sighting of a man in that doorway by a young boy. Somebody seen walking through a wall there. Speakers that have moved from the area all the way over there, so a lot of different reports down here. So we’ve got REMs out, we’ve got an Electroscope and we’ve got the GFO. (muffled synthesised noise) Now there goes the REM right on queue. Thank you, thank you for that, wow, that was a good start. And that’s the door where someone has been seen, oh hell. Okay I’m gonna put the Ovilus on the table. (muffled synthesised noise) Tree? Over here, I’m gonna spin you around. Over here I heard like a beeper noise. If it happens again I’ll communicate, ’cause, Hello? It sounds like it’s behind me on the stage actually. Hello? (gasps) It’s like a whimpering every time. (muffled synthesised noise) Sent, are you sending me a message, is that what you’re saying, you’re whimpering you’re trying to communicate with me? What’s wrong, what happened here? That’s weird. If you can make a. (muffled synthesised noise) If you can make a noise with your mouth, wide. If you can make a noise like that you can maybe sound a word out, maybe your name? (muffled synthesised noise) That was a device, was the REM. Is that you, did you alarm that device on the stairs? I heard a device go off. Was you that alarmed that, at that moment? This is going mad, I’m telling you every time I go towards that wall at the bottom it’s not happy, it’s not happy. This is like there is somebody for sure like unhappy about us being inside of this building. Hello, ah look, there’s more. (muffled synthesised noise) Moment, some moments here, there’s another basement but it’s gotta be in the building next to it. Is there anybody here, anybody at all? Can’t see where I’m going. Please let me know. (muffled synthesised noise) Thank you, thank you, can step away from that now please? Thank you. Paul’s REM Pods have started to alarm in the exact same areas where paranormal activity has been reported previously. And what even more interesting was that whatever was controlling the REM Pod appeared to be intelligent and responded to his questions. Please let me know, (muffled synthesised noise) Thank you, thank you, can you step away from that now please, thank you. What was this intelligent spirit attempting to say while communicating to Paul? Are you the gentleman that’s been seen moving through walls and standing in doorways telling people to get out? Are you that same person? I just heard a noise over there somewhere, I just wanna, everything’s reversed. I’ll have to spin the screen round but over there by the toilets, I’ve just heard a noise. I’m gonna put the red light on so I can see where I’m going. Just heard a noise. Showing it as nobody hiding back there. Can you tell me your name again? Okay, I have just, I’ve just heard the name Amber. (muffled synthesised noise) Climb, I climbed the stairs before and when I climbed the stairs I said I was out of breath. Were you listening to me? I did a VT in this room before and I climbed up the stairs and I stood on the stage and I said, oof, I’m out of breath. Did you hear me say that I climbed the stairs and now I’m out of breath? Yes! It’s a really, really, really weird place this. And it’s all gone a bit weird right now. Bit freaky and a bit weird. I’m not happy it, I’m not having it, it’s like something wants to come out and go ghraaah and get me. No way, there, down there again. If that’s you can you do it one more time for me? I’m here, can you make a noise over there please? Show yourself if you’re a child come over, I’m not here to harm you, I’m here to make contact. Can you come towards me? Can you move something, move a chair? (muffled synthesised noise) Affect the equipment, short, well that’s just plain rude. I may be short. Can you affect something around me? Affect the REM Pod on the stage? There it is. Can you affect this REM Pod after three? One,
(single mechanical click) You really want me to go, do you not like women? Is that what you, ooh looks like there was someone behind me then. Are you behind me? Now we’ll have really strange is that the Ovilus has stopped, there’s been no words. Something seems to be haunting inside of this location and we believe that there are many untold stories still to tell at Walton Social Club. We shall defend our island whatever the costs may be. We shall fight on the beaches we shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the trench. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender.
