I am relating this story which was told to me to by a witness who was described the events. He was not the only witness to the event. I have discussed
the matter with one other witness who confirmed the story.
These strange events occurred in late 1985, at the what was then the Pineapple Pub (which was closed down in May 1985). The public house is located
in Norwich, Norfolk, UK. FYI:www.norfolkpubs.co.uk...
There were a group of teenagers, who entered the closed premise of the public house, looking for alcohol, cigarettes and the like. Eventually they
reach the bar area of the pub. To there surprise, there were still coats, handbags, drinks left of the table, some of the drinks were half empty, and
behind the bar the till, and the "shorts" and beer pumps were still intact. The witnesses stated that the bar and tables were covered in a thin
layer of dust. They also stated that it seemed like everybody left in a hurry. Further all of the witnesses felt something was watching them, and was
curious as to why they were there.
One of the witnessed said, lets get all the stuff..being money, crisps, and "fags" as he put it. They then made the decision, since they believed
the building would be empty, to explore and go upstairs to see what else they could find.
This is when the disturbing events occurred. They left the main bar area via a "swinging door" which lead upstairs. As soon as the last person went
through the door, they all heard thudding sounds..about 5 or 6, rapid one after the other. Upon turning around, they noticed the tips of some kind of
blade were sticking through the door, they just went through. They were very shocked by this, then they started hearing noises come was the bar area
(there was a kitchen area just behind the bar). They went back through this door, and there were "kitchen or chef knifes sticking in the door!", (it
was believed some other kids were messing around just to get rid of them, even though they didn't find anyone). They checked out the area in the bar
and then the kitchen...nothing was found. They decided to still have a look around. As they started to go up stairs, the last one in the queue so to
speak noticed a "blackboard" right by the swing door in the hallway that lead to the stairs. There was "scribbled" writing on the board which read
"your going to die". This had an effect on this witness.
After searching the rooms up stairs, which contained clothes, beds etc., one of them decided that it might be worth the effort to search the attic as
well, as long as they were there. They all eventually managed to find and enter the attic via a ladder. Up in the attic to their surprise, was a lot
of dead birds (pigeons etc.) And the smell was horrendous. There wasn't much up in the attic, but they noticed some kind of opening in the roof. They
explored further by exiting the build via this opening (maybe due to what had occurred down stairs?). The last person to exit via this opening, felt a
"very strong grip" on the bottom of his leg, trying to pull him down, it took all the remaining witnesses to pull him up. He was obviously very
scared at this point.
They managed to get to the ground, via outside drainage pipes. After they left the grounds, two of the witnesses, looked back at the building, and
both of them, could see a little girl in a upstairs window, dressed in what looked like "Victorian clothing" with a "diabolical grin" on her face.
And the most strangest thing she (?) had very red eyes! The witnesses both felt very strongly at this point, the feeling that this little girl "knew
who they were". After this incident that ran away from the building.
The witness who related this story too me, did some background research on the history of the area. He found out, that the grounds were on the
outside of the city walls, and this is where in time past a leper colony existed at that location. Further that there was also workhouse on that, or
very near the site at some point.
I myself, cannot, confirm, deny or provide any further insight into these events..make up your own mind.
