Two investigations have been carried out in the past five years. The groups set up various methods of tracking and recording any unusual activity and set up a series of visits to each room, so see if any spirits were present. One of the most convincing findings came from the Nursery. An EMF (Electro Magnetic Frequency) reader was used to monitor any changes of energy in the room, as questions were asked aloud. In a specific spot, near a doll on a chair in the centre of the room, the meter produced very high spikes. EMF readers can be affected by the energy from radios, electric cables and mobile phones. But it was confirmed there were none of these in that area. When the group returned later that evening to repeat the experiment, there was no change to the energy readings.
Draw your own conclusions
It’s now up to you to decide whether you think Arlington Court may be haunted. If you visit on a bright summer’s day, with sunlight streaming through the windows, it can be difficult to believe there may be anything in these stories. But visit on a damp October day, when the murky light barely penetrates the shadows and you may form a different opinion.
