Landguard Fort ghost hunt – 10-11-2012

Landguard Fort Ghost Hunt, 10th November 2012
Felixstowe, Suffolk

This was our first visit to this venue. When we looked around the place it was in the height of the summer and a nice warm day, although spiritual activity was high on that day even though the place was full of tourists, so as a team we were really looking forward to this ghost hunt as the place has so much potential and it is a large venue with plenty of rooms for guests to investigate.

I had divided up the Fort into two areas for each team and during our initial walk the other members of my team couldn’t believe how much space was available and we knew that neither group would be disturbed by each other as we were far enough away from each other.

I had earmarked one particular area that I felt was going to be a good spot for any séance as even when I visited this on the site visit, it was a spooky place. This was the Caponier.

After letting the guests wander with our equipment for a few minutes in the very long tunnel, which had many rooms adjoining it I came across a male spirit called Christopher, he was a Second World War soldier (Army) who had fair skin, light coloured hair, of a slim build but about 6’ tall. Some of the guests were able to communicate with him via the gadgets. As we approached the Caponier the KII meters came alive, which led me to believe that a séance here would be very productive.

During the séance Christopher managed to move the guests arms, push and pull them and sway them from left to right and even move them in a strange circular motions.

The second group had already been accustomed to our equipment and were eager to set off in the warren of tunnels, however we immediately started at The Caponier with a séance to see what level of activity this group would have.

A male spirit by the name of Mr Bamford was present, this energy seemed to have no emotion and he was a stocky chap, square faced with dark hair. The KII meters were left around the room and showed little sign of life until the séance started, then were active throughout. The séance started with gentle pushing and arm movement, just about all the guests had their arms moved, then the spirit started to push people into awkward and painful positions, some guests were pushed into the walls of the Caponier. Many guests including myself felt a heavy pressure on shoulders and the top of our arms as well as in our backs, the spirit energy was pushing us all downwards. At one point I had to step of the circle to help guests and in doing so the weight I felt in my arms was passed onto the person standing on my right, he too felt the very uncomfortable pain on his shoulders, but this was not a downwards pressure but an upward one, which is a strange feeling. After I closed the séance the spirit energy departed.

After our controlled sessions we let the guests wander throughout the fort with any of our equipment, whilst we either accompanied them or let them investigate on their own. I spent a lot of time trying to find people as there were so many rooms and so few guests (compared to some of our other events). Whilst walking through the tunnel complex I heard a lot of bangs, metal clanking and other metallic sounds along with the sound of footsteps on a wooden floor, which was odd because all the floors were I stood were concrete. As it turned out I was alone in the tunnel complex, but didn’t know it until I had walked the whole tunnel.

I joined a few guests in the upstairs rooms of the keep, there were many female energies present here & I told the guests that if they knocked on the door they may hear a response. One of the rooms there was a female spirit called Mary, who was very smartly dressed, not military who was able to repeat knocks on command.

In one of the bath rooms I came across a male spirit called Terry who was a handyman from 1880s. Terry was able to interact with the guests through our equipment and although we cannot be sure but several times noises were heard within the bath room, unfortunately no-one could actually distinguish or agree what the sounds were e.g. wooden, metallic etc.

When walking upstairs through the gun rooms on my own I heard the sound of someone walking behind me, as I turned to talk to them, there was no one there! Guests who were in this area also heard similar sounds and one guest thought that a GHE team member had stood beside him, when he turned to speak, no-one was there!

Sean (GHE Paranormal Investigator) also heard the sound of “wet” footsteps behind him when walking on the upper levels and once again, no-one was there.

Some of the guests whilst walking in the tunnel felt a “do not approach” feeling, so badly that they came to find me to find out why. When I entered the tunnel and the surrounding magazine rooms I couldn’t sense any spirit energies and the guests admitted that it didn’t feel the same now that I was with them.

This ghost hunt was a brilliant one, as the level of paranormal activity felt by all the guests was high throughout the night. We as a team thoroughly enjoyed the Fort (and have booked more dates for 2013) as it was a pleasure to investigate a large venue where we could let our guests go anywhere they wanted without fear of any hazards. We are still analysing our video from this event but will publish any interesting clips on our YouTube channel as soon as we have finished the analysis.
