South Foreland Lighthouse ghost hunt – 29-6-2012

South Foreland Lighthouse ghost hunt – 29th June 2012

Last years ghost hunt at South Foreland lighthouse was excellent however the weather in October was a little bit windy so we were hoping for a better day for June 2012 and because of the tine of year we were able to see France with ease and much of the coastline of Kent as well as the infamous Goodwin Sands where many ships have sunk over the years.

Fortunately due to the location there weren’t any noises apart from an occasional announcement from Dover docks which was carried on the wind to interfere with our investigation.

After a brief history and tour of the building from the National Trust representative the majority of the group headed into the lower ground floor room, as this was the only room which was completely dark, however myself and Carl (team member) remained outside of this room as we were conducting a special EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. The difference being that both Carl & I were wearing our respective hearing amplification equipment which meant that whilst we could hear the other group clearly we could also conduct our own quiet recordings without interrupting the other group.

During this session many bangs and tapping sounds heard by both of us were heard. These all sounded like someone on the floor above us but no-one was on that floor. We also heard whispers and voices which once again sounded like someone above us. I however had the sensation that my shirt was being pulled out from behind me, but I did not sense any spirit present at that time, although the other group had asked the spirit with them to do something to either of us. (Their report will follow).

When the group had finished in the lower ground floor, myself & Carl ventured into that room, as soon as I took two steps into the room I felt an amazing amount of pain in my right knee, it felt like someone had just kicked my knee. The rest of the group found this very funny as they had asked the spirit that was present to do that to another guest. I had trouble walking for a couple of hours and it hurt every time I went up or down a step.

The second session was held in the Control room of the lighthouse; a female energy called Elizabeth came forward and told us that she lived in the lighthouse with her husband who was a keeper. During this session many bangs and knocking was heard by everyone. Marc (team member) went to investigate one of the knocks as it sounded like the outside door and although we were sure it was locked he went to check. As soon as he was outside the room he exclaimed to himself that it felt odd, although we could clearly here him. He later explained that the atmosphere on that part of the staircase felt strange and stagnant.

Our third session was once again split; some guests followed me into the lower ground floor and others onto the upper ground floor and control room. We were joined by a male energy called Timmy Sullivan who was about 17 or 18 years old and he presented himself as being a simple person. He had dark short hair and was very slim or skinny and about 5’9”. He gave the year of his passing as 1891.

Lots of audible noises were then heard by everyone present, some of the noises sounded like a clock (although there were no clocks in the room) and then just as I thanking Timmy for making a noise we all heard an extremely loud crack right behind me, what this was I have no idea, because nothing in the room was on (there were electrical meters and general lighthouse workings behind me). Tapping on the metallic objects in the room also were repeated back to us as were whistles.

One of the guests who was sitting in a chair felt uncomfortable, so she moved to the other side of the room. This corresponds with a male energy who had turned up, he was 55 years old and basically came in swearing at us, although I was the only person who could hear him, but the guests present felt the atmosphere change. Many more noises were heard including a very loud bang which occurred right in front of me. From this point on one of the team entered the room and sat in the chair that the female guest had sat in and within a few minutes he too wasn’t feeling well and had to leave the room. One of the female guest also left the room as she was frightened.

I then conducted a series of EVP experiments, during which a number of noises continued, mostly it sounded like someone tapping on the metallic objects in the room.

The best EVP can be heard at http://youtu.be/NSRt9pqrM50

Also during the experiment a guest asked a question but instead of an EVP a loud “tick” was heard, you can hear it at http://youtu.be/PCvRl_LuRfU The tick sound had no obvious explanation as nothing in the room had previously made this noise all night.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt with lots of activity. Many Thanks to Janet and the National Trust for making this event run smoothly.

Red Lion Hotel – 14-4-2012 Part 2

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

RED LION HOTEL

INVESTIGATION NOTES SATURDAY 14TH APRIL, 2012.

Notes arising from the group investigations carried out by Marc Weston of Rooms 7 and 10 respectively.

Room 7 – First Group

After an initial, short briefing on the kit provided and its usage and perceived benefits etc, protection for all present was administered and a re-iteration of “investigative protocols” given with regards photo flash and personal/environmental experiences, sensations etc

Within minutes of entering the room and “settling” the clients down, several complained of “seasickness” and “a feeling of disorientation”. This was attributed to the unlevel floor surfaces within the room, effectively creating a slope running away from the bathroom entrance doorway, the door remained closed throughout the vigil. All lighting was out and as much artificial, background light source reduced or minimised to the best of my ability.

From the outset, people were acknowledging temperature changes and fluctuations both apparent and actual within the room. Checks made with a laser beam type thermometer and monitored constantly via the MEL Meter actually indicated a rise in temperature when clients were suggesting that a temperature fall had occurred. A strange anomaly to say the least! This aspect featured throughout the night, associated with all groups in this particular room/area??

One lady requested I monitor her surrounding ambient body temperature, head to toe. At her forehead a reading eight (8) degrees Celsius higher, was recorded compared to her feet/ankle area, where she complained of a “blast of chilled air” No explanation could be identified for this effect. No windows or doors were nearby to create/cause draughts and attendees standing either side of her recorded no variations in temperature or other sensations whatsoever?

Shortly afterwards, guests sitting on the bed edge, adjacent to the wardrobe reported strange “sensations” emanating from the wardrobe itself. MW advised those present that previous vigils in this room had always had similar sensations originating and emanating from the wardrobe area and specifically the corner of the room adjacent.

Within seconds, two individual reports were made alleging the sight of a black mass, moving at low level, “growing” from the corner. Indeterminate in shape and form, several guests suggested that the black mass was indeed exhibiting a human form though this cannot be confirmed or corroborated.

The K2 EMF Meter, held by a guest sitting on the bed edge adjacent to the wardrobe and the corner of the room in question lit up simultaneously. MW attended with an MEL and registered a reading of 3.3 on the EMF Scale, concurring and corroborating that “unknown, unexplained, EMF activity” was indeed underway. Further inspection confirmed that no electrical circuitry or apparatus etc was present or evident in the immediate vicinity.

Simultaneous reports followed from a gentleman advising he was experiencing a “numbness and tingling sensation” throughout his body. He then complained of sharp pain in his chest area and specifically, beneath his lower rib cage lower right hand side as if experiencing a “hard prod by someone or something, maybe even an attempted stabbing?” This cause discomfort and “concern” for a few minutes, until the effect/sensation passed.

A suggestion by MW to utilise a laser grid, to ascertain possible “activity” in the area identified proved fruitless, as new batteries installed less than an hour previously failed immediately when the unit was activated. A guest who had brought his own laser grid pen along, offered to enable his unit to be used, subsequently to also advise that his batteries, too, had also completely depleted without any explanation.

The EMF Ghost Meter proved exceptionally popular with the guests and numerous contacts were recorded. Yes/No questions resulted in “confirmation” that the astral presence/spirit evident during the Q&A sessions was indeed Alice Millar and a gentleman called “Julian”?

A, EVP exercise was undertaken and participated in by all present. Data and resulting details are still not fully analysed and will be forwarded onwards accordingly once identified and properly categorised, etc. Playback immediately afterwards indicates some possible response data

With minimal, additional activity and photography, identifying various orbs, physical “sensations of touch” likened to “an insect or spider crawling on my face”  the vigil was terminated and all present relocated to Room 10.

Room 10 – First Group.

Guests had fewer places to sit in this room and immediately noted a far colder temperature in this room. MW pointed out the window was open and that the heating had been turned down.

Those seated on the double bed, almost immediately began reporting “vibration and movement within the bed itself and throughout its fabric” Photos taken simultaneously illustrated orb activity above and among the guests being affected by this “phenomenon”

Several attempts at using the scrying mirror were made but insufficient background light proved almost impossible. An alternative solution to utilise the large, mirror on the rear of the room entrance door proved better and those attempting to incite activity had little to report other than “strange sensations” and a sense of disorientation.

The connecting cupboard space between the adjoining room 9 was occupied by several guests with a white noise generator running in the background and guests armed with an EVP digital recorder to assist with question/answer sessions. This data is still to be downloaded and properly analysed.

Participants of this EVP activity reported feeling strange sensations throughout their time in the cupboard and “physical contact/ touching” which was totally unexplained?

Tapping/knocking was heard collectively to the rear of the double bed headboard, where the exposed, glass fronted wall surface, is situated. This was achieved by request from MW and also voluntarily, and without request.

Strange “noises” were apparent, emanating from the adjacent en suite bathroom area, but these were discounted, as previous investigation has established the position of a boiler room, at roof top level, adjacent to the bathroom as the accepted source of such activity.

Room 7 – Group Two

The second group to participate in a vigil in this room/area appeared to be more analytical and ken to engage in contacts via the EMF Ghost Meter. From the outset, all emphasis was placed on the area in the corner of the room and the adjacent wardrobe unit. I must add that nothing was said about the previous groups findings and activities at this juncture, yet independently, the second group identified with and voiced very similar thoughts about the corner area and the wardrobe.

K2 meter was indicating amber on the light scale for lengthy periods, supported once again by MEL readings and temperature monitoring in support of the vocal claims of various guests.

Several claims were made by guests sitting on the bed, on the opposite side to the corner area, of “breezes” and a blowing effect” on their hair/facial areas. MW checked and confirmed that the windows were unable to open at all and that there was simply no apparent physical reason or explicable, logical explanation for this effect.

From the outset with this group, the EMF Ghost Meter exhibited unusual and extraordinary performance, rarely seen previously, though a similar occurrence was recorded during the last investigation at this site. Intermittent and sporadic flashing of the meter lighting, in response to questions was evident. Contact was apparent almost continuously, even to the extent that during mobilisation between investigation room areas, the meter continued to remain engaged.

One particular guest appeared to engage with the meter in a “special” manner. Questions to the responding light indicated that once again Alice Millar was present and with us? Questioning, indicated that she had died carrying an unborn child, was exhibiting “distress” “anger” and “was seeking help and assistance” We were told that her child had not joined her in the spirit world?

Two guests embarked on a mission to resolve and help the contact in her plight and MW was asked to provide assistance with moving the spirit on towards the light and reunite the contact with her unborn child. MW explained that better and more professional personnel had engaged in similar endeavours though several centuries without success. Indications are that Alice Millar is totally “grounded” and will haunt the building for eternity.

The group were collectively convinced that something or someone was “hiding “ in the wardrobe. Attempts were even made to enter the unit and close the doors to seek better clarification, etc, on the situation. This was not possible. However, throughout their endeavours, those involved, achieved amber readings on the K” meter

One gentleman advised that he had experienced a strong sensation of “something rushing bay or past him, resulting in a tingling sensation throughout his body. MW commented that he too had similarly felt a “rush of activity” simultaneously, culminating in a tingling sensation throughout his body also and a strong feeling of nausea. This sensation has been experienced by MW in this room and this area, on previous vigils, with other groups.

Several members of the group attempted scrying in the cosmetic mirror on the side table but no major effects were noted or recorded, however, when MW engaged in this practice, within seconds, he withdrew, noting “distortion and a black, hollowing effect, surrounding his eyes in the mirror face”

Another gentleman reported a “tickling sensation” to the side of his head and neck, very gentle but deliberate. Some time later, in the Tudor Room, during debriefing, this same gentleman advised MW that immediately after this vigil, he had gone to the WC and noted in the mirror, his necklace had turned in a full 180 degree half circle. He always fastens the necklace with the clasp uppermost at the rear of his neck. Without him knowing or feeling anything, and without this ever having happened before, this had clearly happened simultaneously with the “tickling effect” he had encountered in Room 7, earlier.

Room 10 – Group Two

Within minutes of entering the room, and at the specific request of MW for spirit to assist with audible footsteps or similar, within this room, all present clearly witnessed and experienced five (5) distinct and very audible footsteps, which appeared to traverse the room from the entrance doorway to the bathroom door area, at a fast running pace.

Most astoundingly, was the obvious mechanical pressure arising from this activity which physically created movement and “springing” of the timber floor area, which shook, as each individual step was heard, and appeared also to move/increase as the rhythm and pattern of the developing phenomenon unfolded. Everyone was left speechless at this “contact”

MW immediately followed up with grateful thanks to spirit for accommodating his request and asked for it to be repeated. Immediately, a large, loud, single bang/noise was heard in the corner of the room by all present, once again causing a ghast of amazement. No further audible noises were recorded during this particular vigil.

Two separate couples entered the cupboard space, awash with white noise and armed with a digital voice recorder. No data has yet been analysed arising from these encounters.

One female guest, emerging from the cupboard,, complained of “something touching her neck” likening the touch to that of a female human hand. When questioned, she stated she found the experience “unpleasant”.

During debrief in the Tudor Room, this same female guest, whilst recounting her experiences to me, asked if I had just exhaled deeply? Her husband, standing behind her as she sat on a chair, also confirmed he too had heard a lengthy exhaling sound.

MW assured the couple that he had not done anything resembling what had been heard/encountered. This episode remains unexplained.

Room 7 – Group Three

Accompanied by Carl Hutchinson on this occasion, filming with IR equipment, the group entered the room and immediately noted the “oppressive” atmosphere apparent in the room. Several also advised they sensed a “blowing effect” or “draft” on their faces and heads. MW once again confirmed that no windows were presently open.

As MW commenced calling out, reports of hair and face touching resulted and the EMF Ghost Meter was actiove throughout and responding well to questions, specifically those aimed at Alice Millar, the purported source from previous vigils.

MW took photos randomly which illustrated several large orbs above guests seated on the four poster bed. Filming everything in real time, Carl gave an elated squeal of amazement as filamentous orb activity was identified and tracked moving across the heads of guests on the bed. Several examples of such activity were successfully recorded.

Carl assisted in requesting spirit “copy” noises made over several minutes, knocking, tapping and whistling were all included. On one single occasion, though the outgoing whistle was two tone and in two parts, a single, monotone response was heard by everyone present and hopefully captured on the camera footage arising from, this vigil?

Tapping, within the fabric of the flank wall, in the area adjacent to the closed bathroom door, was heard clearly and on several separate occasions. All at the request of both MW and Carl. All guests witnessed and noted this phenomenon.

An EVP exercise was undertaken and data remains to be downloaded and fully analysed. Initial playback to guests suggests some vocal response does appear to be present.

During the various phenomena encountered in this vigil. MW, monitoring with a MEL Meter, once again recorded levels as high as 3.3 simultaneously, two (2) K2 Meters indicated amber readings, all of this data collection is clearly recorded and evident on the film footage captured during the vigil.

Once again, the focus appeared to fall upon the wardrobe unit and the room corner previously identified by both earlier vigils and by other investigations of these premises earlier this year.

Room 10 – Group Three

Contact gained with the EMF Ghost Meter was maintained once again as the group relocated from room 7 to room 10 and the strange “behaviour” of the meter continued once again, as previously described.

Ironically, no similar, audible evidence or data appears to have been gathered on this occasion, despite the previous groups encounter and apparent success. Knocking was recorded however, on several occasions, emanating from behind the bed, head board, area.

An EVP exercise was conducted and data remains to be downloaded and analysed.

Photos taken, and film footage taken by Carl on IR Camera, need to be scrutinised, though initial observations did exhibit orb activity in the room over the bed head board as on previous occasions.

Vigils and EVP exercises within the cupboard space ensued, and Carl advised that he would join someone in this area and film accordingly. Minutes later, Carl emerged to advise that his battery power had completely and unexpectedly drained to zero despite full and complete charging!

Reports ensued of touching and feeling incidents once again within the confines of the cupboard space, and, on this occasion only, despite the presence of white noise being generated at floor level, “strange noises” were heard in the cupboard space?

Carl confirmed the above.

The vigil ended and a basic free for all, access all areas ensued for guests for which no feedback, formal recording or notation has been provided.
