The Lincs Paranormal Research Team was founded in 2003. During this period we have spent time in locations around Lincolnshire and further afield in the UK, our aim isn't to prove or disprove the existence of ghosts, hauntings or paranormal activity - we are merely here to gather any information towards furthering our research.
As a collective we are objective in our approach to everything we set out to achieve, the moment you allow yourselves to let your own beliefs taint the research, you might as well give up as you're not doing your job. We will remain open minded on most things.
There are more details on us individually below and you can find out a few bits more in the FAQs section.
She currently works at the University of Lincoln. In her spare time she enjoys skating and belongs to the Lincolnshire Bombers Roller Girls, an all-female roller derby team. "I adore animals and would have a house-full if I could; at the moment I just have a pet tortoise called Leela."
Amy joined the group in late Summer 2008, "I have been fascinated by the paranormal for as long as I can remember; it was possibly influenced by my sister's interest in ghost stories. I have yet to experience anything myself but she insists that she witnessed some unusual events while we were growing up."
"I believe strongly that there is something after we die, not the traditional concept of Heaven and Hell but some other state of being. I tend to believe that the body and spirit are two separate things and that the body is simply a vessel that ages and dies allowing the spirit to move on; perhaps to another realm or maybe into another 'vessel' or body"
Amy is open minded to the paranormal but would best describe herself as healthily sceptical; "Most things tend to have a rational explanation. Having said that, I find the paranormal fascinating and would love to witness something that cannot be explained away."
Garry lives in Lincoln and spent many years travelling up and down the country with various bands that he was in, "I've been in loads of bands and worked with some top musicians through the years, it's been hell!"
He has been self employed twice and now works in partnership with Lincs County Council. Again, he got interested in the paranormal at an early age, "I've always had an interest in the paranormal subject for as long as I can remember and hearing stories from family and friends made me even more interested in finding out what was really happening. It's one of those subjects that intrigues a lot of people and I'm no different in that respect" "I'm a fence sitter where this subject is concerned, something is going on but whether or not it's the dead causing these things to happen is debatable. I do lean towards the idea that 'ghosts' are recordings from the past, how these recordings are made etc is another thing up for debate but it would explain why a lot of unconnected people see the same things happening in certain places at different times. I also think that a lot of times people are left way too open to suggestion and convince themselves that something is what it isn't."
Garry founded the group in 2003 after helping out various other groups and individuals, He hopes to come up with some sort of evidence one way or the other with this group, "If it means debunking things on the way then fair enough. I know we'll always remain honest and will never resort to any fakery or that sort of thing as there'd be no point, we'd only be fooling ourselves in the long run." "I've had a few weird things happen during investigations I've taken part in, but again it's left open to interpretation on whether they really were genuine paranormal happenings or not."
Being in the group has changed his views slightly, "I suppose I'm leaning further and further onto the sceptical side, I'll still remain open minded on it though, as you never know...one day maybe eh?"
