Thank you for your post and experiences, there were disagreement regarding the haunting due to the pressure given by the media, indeed there was a
time when the SPR wanted the whole thing stopped due to the publicity, but if you go to page one and read Guy Playfair's obituary link you will find
it mentioned that in 1981-82 a special committee for the SPR was set up to again view the evidence, they concluded that paranormal incidents had
occurred in the house.
Events regarding Enfield Poltergeist below:-
The children suffered badly during the publicity, being spat at when in school, but loved the attention of the investigators, thus occasionally tried
pranks, but we always found them out and wasn't recorded as paranormal phenomenon.
It must be said that we as investigators, didn't have the amount of equipment that is used today, video recorders and cameras were hugely expensive in
1977 and had just become available to the general public, however the BBC did visit but found that all their equipment didn't work!!!!!
I saw a great deal of phenomenon but never saw Janet levitating.
Now there are films out about this, so i should explain which one is nearest to the truth!
There isn't any doubt that Conjuring 2 is very entertaining, but the house never had a cellar, the wasn't any ghostly nun, crosses didn't turn upside
down and Ed and Lorraine Warren were only in Enfield for a day, so virtually unconnected as this investigation went on for over a year, link
The most accurate drama is called "The Enfield Haunting", for tv by Sky Living, try to see it, however Guy Playfair was never flung against a wall and
obviously there were no cctv cameras operating in the house in 1977.
Usually i don't like haunted house pranks, however just before the screening of the Enfield Haunting, they played a trick on estate agents, it is very
funny, i have to giggle, it is on link below:-
