There are hundreds of teams all over the world. They all have different techniques, unique perspectives and individual points of views but we all have one thing in common…we all are looking for answers to the unknown. Today’s team spotlight comes to us from Lowestoft Suffolk, England. Here, this enchanting seaside town is shrouded in mystery.
Meet East Anglia Paranormal Investigations (EAPI). Founded in April 2013 by Founder, Gary Bradfield and Co-Founder Sharon Bradfield; EAPI investigates the Lowestoft and surrounding areas, from cemeteries, to public houses and even local folk tales like the “witch’s tree” in Lowestoft. The team consists of 11team members, Gary Bradfield, Sharon Bradfield, Manda Smith, Debbie Jones, Alex Collins, John Lyon-Mia, Chris Brookes, Mary Brookes, Robert McRoberts, Glenda Jones, and Karen Greenhorn Jaki.
Upon asking Gary more about himself and his team, this is what he had to say…
Me - What are your investigation methods?
Gary - We at E.A.P.I. do not pretend to know everything about paranormal phenomena, but together as a team we hope to learn more about the paranormal. Our approach is more on the skeptical side and strictly scientific.
Me - What was your first or favorite investigation?
Gary - I haven’t got one particular favorite as every investigation has its own expectations.
Me – What is your favorite pieces of equipment and why?
Gary - I get asked this question a lot and with all the available equipment out there now, I still prefer my 5 senses; vision, hearing, smell, taste, and touch.
Me – What is your favorite memory, either of a hunt, an event or an achievement you’ve made?
Gary - Becoming the founder of E.A.P.I. and working with a great team of people.
Me – What is something no other team knows about E.A.P.I?
Gary - We are in the latter stages and talks of having a second team, which will be at Diss Norfolk England - Co/Founder Manda Smith.
Me - What was your first experience?
Gary - My first experience was at the early age of 3 years old. I would play with a boy that was in the spirit world. I would even make my mum cook him a dinner because if she didn't, I wouldn't eat mine.
Me - What is your dream place to investigate?
Gary - I would have to say Pendle Hill or Edinburgh Vaults
Me – What is your best piece of advice to give?
Gary - NEVER work alone and always stay safe, otherwise the next EVP we pick up could be yours.
One last thing to add: E.A.P.I. Mission Statement
E.A.P.I. is the culmination of a group of people not only interested in capturing alleged paranormal occurrences such as ghosts, spirits, haunting and poltergeist activity, but we try to take steps to understand the cause. We were formed to seek out and investigate the spiritual world for proof of existence. Although we believe that a high percentage of paranormal activity can be explained as natural or psychological E.A.P.I. will remain open-minded to all possibilities. We don’t claim to be professional investigators or possess scientific knowledge of the realm. What we do claim is to provide evidence in the form of pictures, video and/or digital recordings, along with personal experiences. We at E.A.P.I. do not pretend to know everything about paranormal phenomena but together as a team we hope to learn more about the paranormal. Our approach is more on the skeptical side and strictly scientific. We strive to get you the proof and/or answers necessary to make you comfortable in your home or business. Combined with our personal knowledge, experiences, digital audio and video equipment, and measuring devices, we perform complete and thorough investigations of locations of suspected paranormal activity. We take your plight very seriously and will do whatever we can to help you diagnose and understand what your experiences mean. Every client comes first and you will be kept informed of any and all of our findings. We believe education is the best tool and we will involve you in the process in order to help you be better educated for now and the future. And we will always be available to help when needed.
