The Seance - Ryton Masonic Lodge

Gateshead

SOLD OUT

 

Saturday 21st July, 2018

9.30pm - 1.30am

£27 Each

 

This amazing building dates back hundreds of years and was once a grand Manor House to the 1st Mayor of Newcastle which sat on a huge piece of land. It has an adjoining house which is believed to have once been the the servants quarters. In 1920, twenty six Ryton Masonic Brethren met to discuss the formation of a new lodge. It was to be named Ryton Holy Cross Lodge after Ryton Holy Cross Church which had been built 700 years earlier in 1220. Those Brethren were to become the founder members. And it is still used by the Masons to this day.

. It's believed the current owner won't enter the building alone as ghostly sightings are reported and the feeling of uneasiness. Staff are said to have caught photos of orbs entering the room then disappearing through the wall.  A story of a murder on the stair well which was covered up as a accident leads us to believe this is a unsettled spirit trying to communicate with the living. And a further death of a mason by accident  in the corridor, is this the spirit seen wandering upstairs ?

I've done a couple of investigations with Pitch Black now and would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting an interesting experience. They make you feel comfortable in surroundings you wouldn't usually find yourself in. I'm looking forward to doing more hunts with them.

I stayed at the park hotel in Morecambe last night with the pitch black investigation team. This was my first ever time doing anything like this, I was apprehensive and a bit sceptical but all I can say is what an amazing night. The whole team were fantastic, very welcoming, helpful, informative and well organised. During the investigation we had access to all the equipment and were encouraged to take lead on call outs, Ouija board (which was a real eye opener for me) and all other aspects of the investigation. I would like to thank all the other guests who were in my group, you all played a part in making my experience a memorable one. I'm not going to mention the things I witnessed and experienced (and believe me there was a lot) as I feel the best thing I can say is "book up with this team and see for yourself" as I have came away with a lot to think about. Well done and thank you to the pitch black investigation team, all your hard work and effort paid off (I will definitely see you all again)

We had a brilliant night at East Drive, Pontefract last night. The team were very welcoming and professional. We had a great laugh as well as the serious stuff. We had noises, lights, a bunch of keys swinging on their own for about 10 minutes, a random ball being slung over the banister in slow motion, a heavy propped up mirror tipping over and a grand finale of a child's pushchair, a doll and a ball being slung down the stairs!

It was a fantastic night. Thankyou to Carrie and the team-we'll definitely be booking again �
