Para­nor­mal award for in­ves­ti­ga­tor

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEIGHBOURHOOD NEWS -

A para­nor­mal in­ves­ti­ga­tor from Burn­bank is cel­e­brat­ing after scoop­ing a top award.

David Bar­rett says he be­came fas­ci­nated in the para­nor­mal at an early age, and has con­tin­ued to study in the field over the years.

As re­ported in the Ad­ver­tiser, he was part of the Project Para­nor­mal team which took part in a tele­vised in­ves­ti­ga­tion at the Ap­ple­bank Inn in Larkhall.

The show rock­eted into the top 10 most watched pro­grammes on the Show­case chan­nel when it aired, with the lo­cal episode fo­cus­ing on the le­gend of the Black Lady of Larkhall.

David re­cently vis­ited the Paraforce event in Hol­land after be­ing in­vited to hold a lec­ture as a guest speaker.

And he was de­lighted to scoop two awards on his trip – one for best lec­ture and the other for Para­nor­mal Re­searcher Male 2018.

David said: “I en­joyed go­ing over to Hol­land as guest speaker as I live and breathe para­nor­mal 24/7. It felt good be­ing recog­nised for the work I put in to the para­nor­mal field.

“It was also great net­work­ing with fel­low in­ves­ti­ga­tors from around the world and find­ing out how they work. It was a good learn­ing curve watch­ing oth­ers and chat­ting about our ex­pe­ri­ences.”

David’s other ad­ven­tures in the field have taken him to di­verse lo­ca­tions such as Scot­land’s Se­cret Bunker, In­ver­aray Jail and Carn­sal­loch House in Scot­land; New­sham Park Hos­pi­tal, The Na­tional Emer­gency Ser­vices Mu­seum and Shrieve’s House in Eng­land; Leap Cas­tle in Ire­land and Cas­tle Bran, aka Drac­ula’s Cas­tle in Tran­syl­va­nia.

Since the Project Para­nor­mal show aired, he worked on a book, My Life As A Scot­tish Para­nor­mal In­ves­ti­ga­tor, which was re­leased through Ama­zon on Kin­dle and pa­per­back.
