It was a rainswept November night in Burslem when a group of fifty keen ghost hunters descended upon the famous Middleport Pottery Factory for a night of supernatural fun. Ably led by local Clairvoyant Helen Lawson, this was the first time in the factories illustrious history that the site had been made available for a paranormal investigation.
After a stiff drink to settle the nerves and a hot buffet to fuel us for the night ahead, we were divided into groups of twelve. We then took turns to investigate the Mould storeroom, administration offices and the traditional bottle kiln, using an array of specialist equipment and the help of several mediums.
A diverse range of activity was recorded across the three groups throughout the night, including the capture of several orbs on camera, registered readings on EMF meters and much more besides.
The groups were well managed and their numbers suited the pace of the tour. Each was afforded a comfortable amount of time to get a feel for each of the locations, and the small group size ensured that there was never too much noise/movement coming from those in attendance to distract from the investigation.
Middleport Pottery harbours an atmosphere positively charged with tangible history, and I believe it to be deserved of future investigation.
Helen and her team are a knowledgeable and friendly group, ensuring that each is made to feel not only welcome but at ease. I thoroughly enjoyed learning of the history of the factory and exploring it out of hours. Should you wish to attend a ghost hunt in future, Helen’s events come highly recommended.
