Newhaven Fort – 18th March 2017 – Steve

Newhaven Fort ghost hunt 18th March 2017
Newhaven, East Sussex

Newhaven Fort is a new venue for us in 2017, and after a site visit back in January I was really looking forward to the event itself.

I started both my sessions in the Laboratory, in both sessions we were joined by spirit, the strongest spirit was a chap called Stanley, a Second World War soldier aged in his mid-40s who could lift peoples’ hands and arms, push people and pull people backward off their feet.

The second session the spirits were less forthcoming but nevertheless they were still able to move us.
After both sessions, I asked everyone to think of a question to ask spirit and recorded their questions and a gap after each question for spirit to respond in the hope of recording a spirit voice (a.k.a. EVP – Electronic Voice Phenomena). At the time of writing, the audio files are still being analysed.

After the second session, I asked questions via a spirit box in the hope of hearing a spirit voice but unfortunately none were forthcoming.

The East Bastion and Caponier were strange places to be and many guests wandered (quite quickly!) through them, on several occasions footsteps and other noises we heard behind the person exploring and whilst this area is known for ghostly whistles, none were heard.

We are looking forward to our return to this fort in October 2017.

Old Forde House – 11th March 2017 – Steve

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Old Forde House ghost hunt 11th March 2017
Newton Abbot, Devon

When we are walking around the venue deciding on which team member is going to be in which room we all heard noises, voices and footsteps. This made Carol (the night custodian) very nervous, but to us this is reasonably normal and created the right kind of mood for the evening that awaited us.

The room that I chose for my sessions used to be a bedroom (upstairs at the end of the house) and on all three sessions spirit joined us.

The first session was a male spirit called Richard, who was in his early 30s. He was a footman for the house and said that he was here in 1855.
He could lift peoples’ arms and move people in just about any way anyone asked him to do. However most of the movements were pulling people by their arms or pushing them to the floor. This was very amusing for everyone.

The second session there was a female spirit called Miss Bossingham, she was dressed in an Edwardian dress and she carried a parasol. There was also a male spirit called Clive who was a golfer (dressed in golfing attire) from the 1920s and every so often another male spirit who was an Army Officer from the First World War just kept popping in.

With all these spirits there was no noticeable movement, the spirits just wanted to be noticed it seemed.

The third session we were joined by Richard (from the first session) and Miss Bossingham and Clive (from the second session). After a slow start, there was lots of arm movement, touching and pulling people to the floor.

This was a very enjoyable ghost hunt with lots of paranormal activity reported by the guests. We are looking forward to our return visit in September.

Red Lion Hotel – 27th January 2017 – Steve

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 27th January 2017
Colchester, Essex

It is a rare occasion when I feel threatened or intimidated by spirit, but this particular event in room 7 there was an unpleasant atmosphere. The group that I took in here for a séance started out as lacklustre in energy although the spirit was present he gave his name as Brian and that he passed away in the 1980s. He said he was a local man who often visited the Red Lion Hotel. He didn’t give any other information, but he looked to be in his early 50s. Brian could move some of the guest’s arms and push and pull people by their arms. He was able to pull most of the group to the floor in the second group.
Suddenly, the spirit showed us his true nature. I saw what I can only describe as a “dirty old man”, one of the guests looked in the same direction as I did and promptly screamed as she saw something sitting in the chair and it scared her.
As it turned out Brian was a nasty man who would bring you girls and boys back to his room at the hotel, he was never challenged or arrested for his crimes although he didn’t say how he passed away.
The atmosphere that was in this room scared me and most of the guests. No-one really wanted to spend any time in this room, many guests wanted to leave the room immediately but I wanted the spirit to react or say something on my voice recorder. (Nothing was heard from the spirit during the recording).
Whilst this was a fascinating experience for me, as I have been a professional ghost hunter for 13 years but this is probably only the second time in all those years where I too didn’t feel comfortable in a haunted bedroom.
The rest of the ghost hunt was a good night with the scrying being exciting for some of the guests as strange photos were taken in the room.

Colchester Town Hall – 5th November 2016 – Kym

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 5th November 2016
Colchester, Essex

The town hall in Colchester is a fantastic venue, many areas to explore from the basement to council chambers and offices, to the flat on the top floor, with a lot of interaction from spirit.

I was on the top floor doing a séance circle and human pendulum, and we started of with the circle and having some gentle movement for some, a bit more energetic for others.  When we did the pendulum we were able to communicate with spirit, and found out that initially we were talking to a male spirit, then we had a 13 year old girl who was his daughter.  Her name was Sarah, and she and her mother were witches.  She was brought to Colchester to be burned at the stake, and her father was the one that started the fire.  Some people in the circle were feeling heat, others were feeling coldness.  We had asked spirit to make a noise in the room, and just as we were finishing there was a very loud bang on a table leaning up against a wall, which made many jump!

With my second group we had a little movement in the séance circle, but then switched to the pendulum.  The spirit that was with us had come with the group from the previous table tipping session.  Gareth (team) had been with that group too and had joined us.  The spirit was Charlie age 56/57 and had worked as a prison guard at the town hall.  One guest wanted to know how he passed, so I asked everyone to clear their minds, and I asked Charlie to give the last feeling/pain he had before he passed.  One guest felt a pain in their chest, and yes Charlie had passed with a heart attack.  Charlie had passed in 1923, and had fought in France in WW1.  He was married with three children, but had a fallen in love with an English nurse whilst at war.  She had died there and Charlie was heart broken.  He did come home to his family, and did tell his wife of his sadness.  The next spirit that joined us was someone from our kit session at the start of the evening.  We had the following information come through on the Ovilus: Jim Murphy shoot, and the spirit that was with us was Jim Murphy.  He had shot someone, then he had been shot in the head.  He had passed age 28.  We felt this energy was very strong so switched back to a seance circle, and asked the spirit of Jim to move us.  Initially we had some very gentle arm movement, then noticing some were being pushed/pulled down to the floor, I asked spirit to push everyone down, and yes we were all pushed down to the floor!  When I asked spirit to move us all back and step away as our session had finished, we all returned to our original positions.

A fantastic night, with all the guests interacting with the spirits brilliantly, and therefore all having some lovely personal experiences.

Fort Amherst – 20th May 2016 – Steve

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Fort Amherst ghost hunt 20th May 2016
Chatham, Kent


Fort Amherst is one of our favourite venues as there is never a dull moment during the event. It is also one of the spookiest as long tunnels and underground rooms often are.

During the séance sessions that I held we were joined by a spirit called Christopher who was aged in his late 30s and an Army Sergeant from the Second World War era.

Whilst Christopher was able to push and manipulate people we also heard a lot of strange noises, doors banging and footsteps. This was all very odd as there wasn’t a slight breeze outside let alone a strong wind to slam a door.

During the final séance session many of the group, including me had numb or tingling toes. What this meant or what it was supposed to mean is unknown, maybe we’ll find out on a return visit to Fort Amherst later this year.

This was another excellent ghost hunt at the Fort with lots of paranormal activity felt and experienced by the guests.

Explosion Museum – 14th May 2016 – Steve

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Explosion Museum ghost hunt 14th May 2016
Gosport, Hampshire


As a team we love visiting this venue, because we have so much space and buildings for us and our guests to investigate, because we have not used all the buildings for all the activities that we undertake yet.

Being that the group was a small group (which is normal in the summer months) we didn’t split the group and instead each team member held their session with everyone present.

The first session was my séance session, which I chose to hold in a building that I have used before; C Mag, an old magazine room (for storing explosives).

A male spirit by the name of Roger joined us, he was aged in his late 30s or early 40s and an older gent aged in his late 50s who was a Navy Officer and in uniform.

Both these spirits were able to push people and manipulate us with a little force, one guest spent most of the session being pushed forwards or pulled backwards. At one point just about everyone had been pushed to the floor.

The second session was a joint table tilting and Ouija board session. Both activities took a while before anything useful was encountered and the table tilting eventually got going after a lot of encouragement. There is an excerpt of this at

On the Ouija board we eventually had some contact with a slave or a person who was forced to work and a young boy called Timothy who was 15 or 16 years old and also working at Priddy’s Hard. (now the site of the Explosion Museum)

The third session we let the guests loose with our gadgets in the old Admin building, this is a popular building for this activity as the building is big enough to allow the guests to roam from room to room and they may encounter different spirits in different parts of the building.

The fourth session was a Human Pendulum session in the Grand Magazine where guests were able to ask spirit questions and feel the spirit move them.

After this session all guests were able to explore the buildings and carry out their own ghost hunt. During this time guests could borrow our ghost hunting equipment.

This was another excellent ghost hunt with some good personal paranormal evidence encountered by the guests in various parts of the site using a whole manner of different activities. We look forward to our return in August.

True Crime Museum – 4th June 2016 – Steve

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

True Crime Museum ghost hunt 4th June 2016
Hastings, East Sussex


The True Crime Museum is an odd place, hence why we hold ghost hunts here, but our first event in February didn’t reveal anything unusual or menacing. This time though, is a different story.

This was in many ways, one of the strangest ghost hunts that I have ever undertaken. There were only a few guests, which may explain why it happened but the team were all affected by spirit at one point or another. Some of us were only affected once in a minor way, whilst others were affected all night.

We started the ghost hunt with a séance in the aptly named “Death Chamber”, the idea behind this was to build the energy that would last throughout the rest of the evening.

It all started well, with two brother spirits who joined us, starting to move guests by their hands and arms and as happened on our previous visit in February, the spirits tried to pull people backwards over the railings. The two male energies were Royal Mail post men from the year 1900, only one gave his name as David Webb.

Sue (team) was picking up on a smell of horses and was telling us about what she was sensing, when she announced that she wasn’t feeling right. So I made my way over to remove her from the circle. After she came out she explained that she became dizzy and didn’t feel right. Emma (guest) during this time also had dropped her head and was unresponsive to us calling her name. As Sue and myself made our way to Emma, she collapsed on the floor. I decided that closing the séance circle was the safest thing to do.

When then took a break so that those that were affected could recover.

After a tea break we continued with a table tilting session which was something sporadic, one minute the table was walking and moving, next it was stationary followed by some more movement. At one point this table was walking between the two rooms (the two rooms were linked by a small tunnel) which was interesting in itself.

After a short break we handed out equipment to the guests (and instructed them on how to use them) and let them wander around the museum, communicating and asking questions of the spirit.

I had just walked back into another room to collect another piece of kit, when Louise (team) came out of the “Death Chamber” and looked at me in an odd way, it was more of a surprised look. When I spoke to Louise and asked if she was alright it became clear that she wasn’t as her eyes were glazed over and she was unresponsive. It was necessary that Louise should exit the venue as the spirit that had more control over her than she did herself. It took three of us to remove her from the Museum and she was kicking and fighting with us that she didn’t want to leave, although gave no reason as to why.

After she was outside she couldn’t remember anything that had happened and only remembered going into the “Death Chamber” with a KII (EMF Meter).

As I walked back into the Museum on my own I could feel a malicious spirit energy present, although didn’t pay much attention to him as I was heading to see how the guests were getting on. At this time, I felt disorientated, dizzy and lost.  As I stood there I was aware of these feelings but unable to do much about it and then whatever had stopped me, had gone away and I was able to move again, although I had no idea what I was doing or going to do, so I returned to the base room.

Jason (team) also felt a sensation of being confused and disorientated once in the “Death Chamber” during the séance and at other times throughout the evening.

Guests continued to communicate with spirit and had a long conversation with a spirit using a Ouija board which revealed truths about what had happened on the night. Unfortunately, I wasn’t present so don’t know the full details. Louise during this time was still recovering as she felt weak.

Once we left the venue everyone felt OK, albeit tired.

Watch the edited highlights videos:- – Séance – Table Tilting

All in all, this was a very unusual ghost hunt with some strange activity felt by various people including guests and team.

We look forward to returning in July

Rye Castle – 23rd April 2016 – Steve

Rye Castle ghost hunt 23rd April 2016
Rye, East Sussex


Rye Castle is a small venue which is why there are only a small amount of guests allowed for the ghost hunt, however on this evening a number of guests failed to turn up so the group was smaller than previous ghost hunts. This meant that the ghost hunt was more intimate for those who were present and the personal evidence that these guests encountered was brilliant.

We kept all the guests together since the group was about half the size it should have been and held three sessions.

The first session was a tech and gadget session in the main Keep where the guests we able to get basic yes and no answers to their questions as well as experiencing strange energy spikes on our meters.

The second session was a table tilting session in which we had some movement on the table and the third session was a séance session where we were joined by a male spirit aged in his 50s from the 1890s. He was called Anthony Dwight and he was a well-dressed gentlemen wearing a smart pin striped suit and had a pocket watch.

Anthony was able to move the majority of the guests by their arms and pull various people by their arms to the floor, which was all very amusing to us.

During the free session (when guests can venture off on their own) guests were coming back to us in the base room after being upstairs in the Keep or in the Woman’s Tower and reporting that something unusual happened to them. On all occasions they had thought there was someone else in the room with them, when in fact they had all been on their own (in pairs). One pair of guests reported that first they thought someone spoke to the them and then they heard the “woosh” of a lady’s dress as it passed them by.

All in all, a very interesting ghost hunt and we look forward to our return in September 2016.

Landguard Fort – 9th April 2016 – Steve

Landguard Fort ghost hunt 9th April 2016
Felixstowe, Suffolk


I forget how many times that we have investigated this fort however we enjoy every one as the activity and the experience is different every time. There are many rooms here, which I still haven’t investigated or even entered.

For all my sessions on this occasion I held them in the guardhouse at the entrance of the fort.

We were joined by a spirit called George who was a Second World War soldier at the fort but lived through the war years and passed away at the age of 55. Plus, there was an older spirit from 1830s, also a Soldier in the Army and held the rank of Major. This spirit did not give his name.

In all sessions the spirit was able to move and manipulate people and in many cases pushed people to the floor and held some of them on the floor, unable to get up on their own.

This was all very amusing which seem to heighten the activity and the experience of the guests with more people being manipulated as time wore on.

The videos of the séance sessions can be watched at: –

This was another excellent ghost hunt at the fort with many people experiencing paranormal activity and having their own paranormal evidence in the free session. We look forward to our return in October 2016.

Oliver Cromwell’s House – 2nd April 2016 – Steve

Tuesday, May 24th, 2016

Oliver Cromwell’s House 2nd April 2016
Ely, Cambridgeshire


Having visited this haunted house before we were looking forward to another visit to see if similar activity occurred.

All of my séance sessions were held in the study and the bedroom.

We were joined firstly by a spirit called Antony who was in his 40s and from 1850s era. In most sessions Antony was able to move and manipulate people and pull them to the floor as well as move the bedclothes. Those who saw the bedclothes move were genuinely surprised, although it only happened in the first session. Other sessions people were just pushed and moved and had their arms lifted. Although in the third session people were pushed towards the door.

In the study we met a spirit called Thomas who at one time lived in the house, around 1890 and a more modern spirit from 1986 who passed away just outside the house as he was involved in a motorcycle crash.

Some of the guests who sat in the chair in one corner of the room felt uneasy, whilst others who stood in another corner became more uneasy with time. Many people in all groups felt dizzy or had headaches throughout these sessions which was unexplainable.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with many people in the free session experimenting with scrying in an upstairs room and getting some amazing personal evidence.

We look forward to returning in 2017.
