The Buffalo Centre, Blyth
The exciting prospect of the Buffalo Centre is a sheer lack of information regarding the history of this building. We do know it dates back to the 17th Century when it began as an old coaching inn when Blyth was a very small riverside village.
The Buffalo is then listed as a public house/inn until the middle of the 1970s when it was converted into a community centre for the people of Cowpen.
Today, this fantastic building hosts a number of community projects. Outside in the courtyard you can still find the original coaching stables and will be used in part for our investigations.
The surrounding town of Blyth is steeped in history. Dating back to the 13th Century Blyth stands on the River Blyth which runs into The North Sea via its Quayside.
During the 18th Century Blyth expanded thanks to its mining and shipping industry. Unfortunately this declined in the latter part of the 20th century but still remains a bustling market town.
Shadows and entities have been spotted on both floors. A young boy has been spotted running through the hallways, whilst a man only described as dark has been reported to follow people around the building.
Poltergeist activity had been reported as chairs have been heard moving in rooms when no-one is present.
