History

Join us on an evening to investigate the River Studio in Compton Lodge in Winsor Road previously Fishers Road (before the by-pass went through), Totton.

The Oddfellows Hall was opened in 1903 according to the current date stone on the building and later became the Totton Picture House and continues to throw up mysteries to its origins and presence. 

Recent ghostly figure sighting of a man have lead to increasing interest to the paranormal activity at Compton Lodge. There’s always a presence in the building felt by staff and customers on a regular basis. Things get moved, lights turning themselves off and keys go missing.

Dr Iain Lightfoot reports “Unearthing Mysteries at Compton Lodge, Totton: A Night of Paranormal Investigation

Most haunted building in Totton, Southampton – What are the secrets of this building, what is making these things happen?

We know Compton Lodge was reopened as an Oddfellows Hall in 1903 but its story has been lost in time. A picture from an old book found said it is “an old Methodist Chapel (now the Christian Centre)” but the date stone on that building says 1855.

The building was used as a cinema for silent films in the 1920’s and rumoured as being used for weapon storage during the war to store engine parts for Spitfires… what else will we discover?

Mysterious Oddfellows book

In 2020 an employee was going through a cupboard in a new part of the extension of the building in the down stairs kitchen where she found a book of an Investment Ledger belonging to the Oddfellows dating back to 1914. 

The fact the building was completely derelict and redeveloped in 2010 makes this discovery even more baffling/curious and the previous owner knew nothing about it?

An energetic clearance of the building was done around this time due to a procession of bad luck but is something back?

Oddfellows, Totton 

For a time, fraternal and friendly societies like the Odd Fellows were suppressed in England. Membership became a criminal offence, and such organizations were driven underground and forced to use codes, passwords, special handshakes and similar mechanisms.

Paranormal

Rumbridge Street, Totton Paranormal activity

There is no shortage of paranormal activity in the Rumbridge Street area with power surcharges cutting out mains power on a regular basis.

Rumbridge Street hauntings; apparently, a small boy died in a fire at the house many years ago. On a number of occasions, a small blonde boy would briefly appear in the house to different family members.

One day, the chap walked into a room and it appeared to be full of smoke, except that it quickly disappeared and there was no smell or obvious to where it came from.
