Day 1Walking from the SUSU Café towardsand through Southampton Commonwhen the zombies turned up! We rantowards the Lake trying to escape,thinking we could lose them in thewater but this turns out to be notsuch a great idea as it soon becomesapparent they don’t need to breathe.They can walk under water! Ourescape route back to the SUSU Caféis cut off, we move on through thewoods where we managed to outrunthe zombies for a few hours as theymoved very slowly.Rachel’s behaving a bit peculiar…
Day 2 – Day 7 Rachel chases us the whole way to the pub - The Cowherds, we escape and manage to barricade ourselves in by using the broken up furniture to bar up the windows and the doors. We stay safe, the place is abandoned, we find food supplies, water and more furniture to break and defend ourselves with. We use the balcony to set off the fireworks found in the basement hoping to get help from outside. Zombies stop and stare. After 5 days, the zombies cannot be held back. We hide the supplies inside, set off more fireworks and carrying whatever we could, try to escape towards the city.
Creeping out, we find Rachel has been hiding under the stairs at the back. She is fullyturned and we need to distract her to escape.We use home made petrol bombs totry and distract her hoping this wouldwork the same as fireworks.
Day 8We run, looking fora safe place to hide and wait out the infection, hopingthe supplies would last.We find a radio and listen out forsporadic messages from other survivors.
Day 9We find Southampton abandoned… Palmerston Park is eerily quiet and we move on quickly
We find ournext base – theSouthampton Day 10City Walls –BargateGateway
Day 11We are safe but plan for getting more supplies and fighting off the zombie attacksTwo more survivors join us, we split into two groups; one holding the Bargate andthe other will recapture The Cowherd Pub to save the remaining supplies.We abandon;• Café SUSU – starting destination, large amount of people a lot of students already infected. And a lot of places for zombies to hide.• Southampton Common Lake – first attack, zombies can walk underwater.• Palmerston park – we ran through here but as there was so much open space there was no where to hide from the zombies.• Bargate shopping centre – we watched this when manning our fort, the zombies were climbing all over the building’s and had taken full control of the surrounding area. We hold and defend; • Cowherds – the destination where was stayed safe for 5 days till the zombies managed to break through our defences. • Southampton City Wall –Bargate – we than used this destination for two days as we managed to break in and observe the zombies movements from the top of the fort.
We learn it is best to travel at night so the fireworks could have the full affect.We run everywhere as the zombies could only travel at 2- 3 mph.
