Rye Castle – 28-4-2012

Rye Castle ghost hunt 28th April 2012

After our first ghost hunt at Rye Castle in September 2011, we were really looking forward to returning, since we had a lot of unexplainable and anomalous activity. This time we and the guests were not disappointed.

The weather certainly did not help the evenings proceedings, torrential rain battered Rye all night long. Since this was a small group I decided that because of the weather we would stay in one group throughout the evening.

The First session was held on the first floor of the tower, where there was a lot of KII EMF activity and through our electronic equipment, guests we able to ascertain that there were two energies present.

The first was a male energy, who was Dutch and from the 1880s. This energy was able to communicate with the guests through our equipment and answered many of their questions.

The second, who I could see, was another male energy called George Cooper. He was 23 years old when he passed and he told me that he frequently rode a motorcycle. He was dressed from the 1970s. He was about 5’10” in height and of a slim build. He had natural blonde hair and myself and a guest (Wendy) saw him pass between us, both of us saw his long blonde hair (shoulder length).

There was also another male energy present, an American Indian although I had no communication with him.

Towards the end of the session Wendy started to shake uncontrollably and quite violently, even when she sat down the shaking continued for some time. When we were leaving the room Wendy was literally stuck on the staircase, unable to move her legs. Wendy commented that it felt like the spirits were reluctant to let her go. I took two of us to get Wendy down to the ground floor. I suggested that Wendy leave the tower for a few minutes as this would dispel an further activity on Wendy from whatever spirit had caused this. When Wendy returned, nothing bad happened to her for the rest of the evening.

Our second session was held in the Women’s Tower (a smaller tower that once housed women and children prisoners). After about five minutes Marc had to leave as he said that he wasn’t feeling well and needed some air. Marc continued listening to us from the bottom of the tower. As Marc approached the door way to the court yard he reported seeing two orange lights outside the door. When he investigated this he could not work out how this was possible from any nearby property, as the walls surrounding the courtyard are at least 20 feet high and only about 10 feet from the entrance to the Women’s Tower. Considering that it was raining heavily a light source could have only been in the sky, but this too is extremely unlikely and thus this remains unexplained.

Both Carl and Ted (Volunteer Guide) commented that the wall that they had their backs to felt as if it was moving, which is rather unlikely, but both felt the same when standing in this area.

Once again there was some KII activity recorded and some communication via our equipment for the guests, although I have no details of this apart from the fact female and child energies were present. Carl who was standing in a corner said that he too wasn’t feeling well, although he told me afterwards that he just felt angry and wanted to hit me. Many of the guests then stood exactly where Carl had stood and some of the guests reported feeling the same, although when I stood in that spot I felt nothing. Many guests also reported that the room seemed to get darker in the corners.

During the period we were in this tower I was knocking on a metal filing cabinet for spirit to repeat or copy the knocks, many of which were heard in response. Marc however who was in the downstairs room heard the same noises, but he heard them as if they had been repeated on a wooden object. There wasn’t any wooden surfaces in this tower.

Many people heard strange noises outside in the courtyard, including Marc (who was closest). We also conducted a short session in the lower room of this tower, but other than noises and sounds heard from the courtyard nothing notable happened.

When guests proceeded into the courtyard many of them felt vulnerable and exposed, whilst others including me felt serene and pleasant energies. To me it seemed a very pleasant place to relax. Had it not been raining then we would have investigated this further.

Marc and Carl held a lone vigil in one of the cells, Ted who just opened the door for them and stood outside the cell did not feel well and was affected by this experience. Whilst Carl & Marc were here they heard audible sounds, although nothing was recorded on our equipment.

Our third session was split between the first floor of the main tower and the basement area, which had at one time been the town morgue. I was on the first floor with the majority of the guests, the rest were in the basement with Marc & Carl.

Those in the basement tried a scrying experiment with some startling results, all of those who participated didn’t like the results. There was also a strange humming sound heard in this area, Ted commented that he had never heard this sound before. Just before we left Ted and Marc re-checked this area and no sound or humming could be heard.

Also in the basement, those present could smell various scents, possibly formaldehyde, this periodically moved around the room got stronger in places and faded away. Audible tapping and knocking sounds were heard in the proximity of the ceiling of the basement, although the EVP experiment held here did not reveal anything.

I held a proper séance this time and a female energy called Janet Wansley came forward. She was in her early 20s and came across as being a housekeeper or someone who lived in this tower when it was a home. She had dark brown hair and piercing blue eyes, very similar to some Irish people. Many of the guests, especially Virginia noted Janet had a lovely warm energy and was very vibrant in her actions. Janet proceeded to physically touch guests and move our arms and push us forwards and backwards. At one point everyone was swaying from side to side.

I conducted various EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena experiments – a.k.a. ghost voice experiments) through the entire evening. Out of all the recordings six were definite ghost voices, the best three you can listen to at:-

Several photographs were taken but nothing strange or anomalous was reported by anyone.

Once again a very enjoyable and exciting investigation and one which we hope to return to later in the year as we would like to investigate the courtyard, hopefully next time it will not be raining.

Also in attendance with me were Marc & Carl who are experienced paranormal investigators.
