Parnell School investigation recordings

While investigating this building we sometimes would hear what we thought was a woman speaking. While some team members (who were not in the room at the times these were recorded) insisted this was someone’s stomach, those who were there insisted that it was not. I find it interesting that the noise does seem to respond to our questions. – Barbara

And another at a different investigation (same room as the other voices)


Boarding School noises

This noise was captured during a communication session on the second floor of an old boarding school we were investigating. It was clearly heard by the investigators in the room at the time and the sounds seemed to start at one end of the building, move towards us and past us. This was heard on the second floor which was unused and empty with no furniture or anything heavy which could have possibly made that noise. Strangely the two investigators who were in the room directly below where the other investigators were heard nothing at all.

Auckland Girl’s School Investigations: Various voices and knocking 2016 – 2018

During 2016 – 2018, the team were lucky enough to be granted unlimited access to research inside a historical Auckland girl’s school. In the two years of access we had, we conducted over 20 research visits, many of them full overnight stays. During a few of these sessions we would allow our followers to join in by starting a Facebook Live feed. This idea proved vfry useful, as those followers could watch and listen with, and for us. Certainly a big help in covering alot of area with so many eyes and ears monitoring.

During one session, our Live Feed followers commented they could hear what sounded like children playing. Laughing and giggling as they would in a school situation. The sounds were heard  whilst the live feed phone camera was positioned on a tripod in an old unused bathroom on the uptairs level. When one of the team went upstairs to sit in the batroom to see if we too could hear it (we couldnt hear it with our ears at the time), it was heard, but only electronically through headphones and not with the ears.  This was all happening arouna 2am in the morning.; a time when the chances of it actually being a crowd of children out playing wouldve been very slim. Again, the sounds were not heard with our ears, so could not have been coming from inside or outside. We post the audio captures here for you to listen to and form your own opinions.

Private Investigation: Westgate

This clip was actually recorded during a private investigation of a house at Westgate. We were talking to the client outside. The house was in a rural situation with no other houses around it. A woman apparently says something, however there was no woman there. – Barbara

School’s out! ….or is it?

While investigating at an abandoned school some of the team heard two loud thumps during a communication session held on the second floor of the building. You hear the thumps and then an investigator who was in the hallway outside the room where three investigators were calls out to see if we had also heard the noise. These thumps were so loud and deliberate we wondered if someone was having us on and was banging the wall in a nearby room so we immediately rechecked the outside fire escapes and then went through every room in the building to make sure there was not an intruder. Strangely these bangs were only heard on the second floor and two investigators who had been in the room directly below heard nothing at all. We had many sessions at this school which included checking the attic and never found any evidence of possums or rodents.

Puhinui Homestead man talks about a pump

One in particular is really intriguing as it sounds like Mark Wallbank speaking and saying something about pumps, however Mark had left the building over an hour beforehand. This man’s voice was captured during one of our many research sessions at Puhinui House at the Howick village. The investigation was a duo with only Barbara and Karen present at the time. They were downstairs and had left the audio recorder upstairs. A man’s voice clearly asks “What about the pumps?” or something along those lines. The voice seems to be quite close to the audio recorder. It is interesting to note that the pump that had originally been at the house had been imported from England and that it was at that time state-of-the-art and the owner had been immensely proud of it. I can offer no explanation for that voice as at the time there were only two female investigators in the building. – Barbara

Get out

This voice was captured during a Haunted Auckland visit to Spookers with “The Edge” radio hosts. A room that had been previously closed up was opened so that the radio presenter could sleep the night there. A voice seems to whisper “Get Out” as we look into the room….
