Peo­ple who come and stay have said they see a lit­tle girl around the house Sir Trevor Gar­land

THE owner of The Oaks home­stead, at Plump­ton, is con­sid­er­ing call­ing in the ghost­busters again as para­nor­mal ac­tiv­ity is at an all­time high at the his­toric prop­erty.

Sir Trevor Gar­land, the for­mer Solomon Is­lands hon­orary con­sul-gen­eral in Sydney, is a con­fessed scep­tic, but says the ac­tiv­ity is wor­ri­some.

The Western Sydney Para­nor­mal Re­search (WSPR) first vis­ited The Oaks in 2012, and Sir Trevor said he would like to have the team back to in­ves­ti­gate again.

“I have been hear­ing foot­steps around the house again re­cently – it would be good to have the team out to in­ves­ti­gate again,” he said.

“I hear foot­steps ev­ery now and then and when I go to look there is noth­ing there. Peo­ple who come and stay have said they see a lit­tle girl around the house.

“There was a lit­tle girl who orig­i­nally lived in the home and her grave is on the grounds.”

The Hy­atts Rd prop­erty orig­i­nally cov­ered more than 14.5ha and is be­lieved to have been built by hard­ware business owner Wil­liam Gold­ing in 1895.

Sir Trevor bought the prop­erty al­most 14 years ago af­ter he moved from in­ner Sydney.

WSPR ini­tially in­ves­ti­gated the prop­erty in 2012 and came to some chill­ing con- clu­sions. A WSPR spokes­woman said the prop­erty had its fair share of para­nor­mal re­port­ings over the years.

“Ev­ery­thing from full­body ap­pari­tions, au­di­ble phe­nom­ena voices and names be­ing called, as well as phys­i­cal phe­nom­ena,” she said.

“Many peo­ple, in­clud­ing the wit­nesses that we in­ter­viewed, have re­ported see­ing the ap­pari­tion of a young girl. Wit­nesses have also re­ported see­ing the fig­ure of an el­derly lady look­ing out from the sec­ond-storey win­dows of the house.”

One of the rooms on the lower floor of the prop­erty is said to be par­tic­u­larly “haunted”.

“Many wit­nesses have also re­ported a sense of fear and anx­i­ety in a cou­ple of the rooms, how­ever, one room in par­tic­u­lar, lo­cated on the lower floor of the house ...,” the spokes­woman said.

“Many, many peo­ple have re­ported the same sense of loss of bal­ance within this room. In state­ments, wit­nesses re­port the sense of ‘be­ing on a rock­ing boat’ in this room.”
