The Bristol Spirit Lodge project was founded in October 2006, with the building of a wooden garden shed.  The first séance was held in that building early in February 2007.  The experiment initially began as a personal experiment to discover to my satisfaction whether or not there is any likely truth in the potential reality of continuing consciousness following physical death. 
Since then, a house move enabled the provision of a séance room within my home. Between 2006 and 2020 over three thousand seances have been hosted within the Lodge environment and a truly amazing plethora of evidential physical mediumship and related spiritually effected phenomena has become witnessed by myself, supporting attendees and guest sitters alike.  Also, as a result of witness interest several similar circles have been founded both in UK and abroad. 

As self-motivated regular attendance is considered to be of paramount importance within the Lodge group, at no time has any attendance fee been requested.  This practise also ensures that there has never been any financial incentive involved within the experiments. 

In March 2020 the Covid lockdown caused the Lodge seance room to close. Currently, periodic seances are being held with just a few people present.
