Rye Castle ghost hunt – 26-4-2014

Rye Castle ghost hunt 26th April 2014
Rye, East Sussex

Rye Castle is one of those special places, were it seems innocuous during the day time, but at night things aren’t quite what people expect. That’s why we like it!

Normally all guests are split into two groups, one group in the Women’s Tower, the rest with me in the main Keep, but this time we held a larger séance in the main keep first.

We were joined by Charles, a provincial bobby (countryside) who wore a large cape and carried a storm lantern and Clive who was a local petty criminal aged in his early 30s, wearing a white granddad shirt and green woollen trousers.

The séance started with gentle arm movement, which is what I asked for and then spirit took this to another level by twisting our arms with other people and pushing people off balance. Many of the guests who asked to be moved, touched or pushed got their wish come true as spirit was able to move everyone eventually by pushing them forward and pulling the guests backwards.

At the end of the séance a familiar feeling was felt by everyone in the room, this is something that we have witnessed a few times before, but this feeling is getting more frequent. It is the feeling of being unstable when standing up, after a while all guests had to hold on to something or lean on something as standing unaided felt odd and many reported that if they didn’t they had the sensation that they would fall over.

Anyone who was standing near to the front window felt the sensation of being pulled into the wall, whether this had anything to do with the general sensation in the room remains a mystery.

Half of the guests stayed with me the rest headed into the Woman’s Tower, those with me went into the mortuary part of the tower, and this is now the lower part of the tower.

Some unusual noises were heard, although we all heard them we couldn’t explain what it actually sounded like, the noises were just plain odd.

Whilst I was talking to the guests a World War Two soldier joined us and it would seem just to listen to what was said because he didn’t interact with us. Going upstairs to the main keep into one of the old cells we met a fairly short male spirit his name aptly was Dicky who had been persecuted for killing a chicken. The guests in this cell were able to feel his presence.

Going into the Woman’s Tower one guest reported feeling a tightening sensation around her neck and throat and feeling dizzy. When I stood in the same spot I too felt much the same although the sensation of being dizzy was more prominent. As the session progressed the sensation of feeling dizzy, unsteady and general swaying became more pronounced.

There were two spirits present, one a young female spirit aged in her late teens and a male spirit who took a dislike for me. Whilst we were here in the tower we heard a strange breathing noise, like someone who had difficulty trying to breathe or someone taking their last breath. When I asked for the spirit to touch or move people Katie (guest) felt nauseous. When we were in the lower part of the tower we all heard footsteps on the concrete steps leading to the upstairs and walking across the floor above us, we were the only people in the tower at the time and the tower doesn’t adjoin anything.

At the end of the evening all the guests were in the keep whilst Ted, the museum guide was locking the Woman’s Tower and we were watching on the CCTV. There was a chain that when put in place across the room seemed to sway, nothing unusual in this, but it took a very long time to stop swaying and then when it nearly stopped, it started swaying again. We wondered whether this was due to Ted shutting the door and creating a draft, but as we watched the swaying get more pronounced Ted walked into the Keep. This continued for at least 5 more minutes before coming to rest.

Once again a great night and our first for 2014 at Rye Castle, hopefully the rest of our ghost hunts at Rye will be just as active.

Rye Castle ghost hunt – 21-7-2012

Rye Castle (Ypres Tower) ghost hunt – 21st July 2012

We have held two ghost hunts at Rye Castle in the past and each time the level of activity increases nothing could have prepared us for what happened on 21st July. It was truly exceptional what the guests experienced.

We started with two groups, one group going up to the upper level, the other to the basement level. My group on the upper level had within minutes much KII activity and plenty of communication via our electronic devices and since it was still relatively light outside the room felt safe and generally comfortable.

To give the guests an experience of the spirits that reside within the wall of the Tower I decided that it would be pertinent to hold a séance, as this is the best way to experience spiritual activity.

We were joined by a male energy called Tony, he was aged in his mid-40s and quite a stocky build since he was about 5’8” in height. He was wearing a white shirt and brown or tan trousers but what struck me as being odd is that he had very shiny black shoes. The shoes did not look like they belonged to him. Tony was a happy spirit and I felt he would have been quite a character when he was alive, as his facial expressions hid nothing. He had a round likeable face although slightly bald. He seemed to be have no reason to be in the tower. If he did he didn’t tell me.

During the séance circle Tony moved the guests arms on request and did exactly what they asked, even when the guests did not voice their request.

We were also joined by Agnes a female energy who remained non talkative from the start. She was well dressed and aged in her late 40s.

Lorraine (guest) could smell sick during the séance which made her feel uncomfortable and then she could taste it as well which nearly made her physically sick!

Ted (the Rye Castle Museum guide) could also smell manure as did some of the guests including Lorraine. Ted also smelt roses but only in a certain part of the room, Jeff (guest) too also smelled roses.

There was also a Policeman or Peeler present. He only gave me his surname as Constable Peace. He looked about 30 years old but did not talk to me, just looked on for the entire séance, which not only involved gentle arm movement but also some swaying and for Rachael (guest) some much more forceful movement.

During this time we could see light flashing through the floor which we assumed was the other group taking photographs, however light would not have reached us from where they were (in the basement) and when we asked them after the session had finished they did not take any photos on the ground floor, which had they done so we would have seen. The light we saw has no rational explanation as light cannot pass through solid objects.

 

After a short break both groups swapped locations.

Once again on the upper floor we had excellent communication via our electronic equipment but this time very little KII activity. The room also felt different and most people noticed this. Both Ted and I had no explanation for why this might be.

Once again we were joined very quickly by a young energy. His name was Timothy Spratt, his father was a local fisherman and his mother was imprisoned in the Tower. He was about 9 or 10 years old and was dressed in what I would call a school uniform and had blonde hair.

There were also two female energies present, possibly sisters as they looked alike, aged about 20 years old and they just stood by the display cabinets and some of the guests saw shadows in that area of the room.

Ted commented to me that he felt uncomfortable in one of the corners beside a cell. I could feel the spirit energy that was responsible, although he posed no threat to us at this time even though he wasn’t a particularly nice person.

Once again I started a séance circle so that these guests could experience spirit activity and hopefully get some physical movement.

The movement started gently with simple arm movements to the majority of the guests. Many of the guests were amazed at this as they did not expect anything to happen!

I noticed a male energy that seemed to appear from nowhere step really close to the circle, the other energies that were present all disappeared and the movement stopped briefly then started again but with more force. The male energy gave his name as Benjamin and he made Claire (guest) feel very uncomfortable. All Benjamin told me is that he was the energy that Ted felt in the room earlier and that he hated women and used to murder them for fun. He was imprisoned briefly in the Tower for murder. Benjamin tried to twist my hands and Shelly’s (guest) apart, as Shelly was standing next to Claire and Benjamin thought he could get to her that way.

Many guests also felt very cold when Benjamin was standing near them, this felt like the sort of cold felt when opening a freezer.

Teresa (guest) who was standing on my left felt movement around her ear and hair, several minutes later her earring “fell out”, which given the way earrings are attached could not have been an accident as everyone was holding hands and no one touched Teresa’s ear.

The energy Benjamin was making many of the guests feel uncomfortable and we could all feel a force which was pushing us downwards. Ted had moved from where he was sitting because he too didn’t feel well sitting in that spot and moved to the other side of the room.

Many guests felt sensations around the back of the necks and their hair, I too felt a restriction around my throat. Shelly also felt pains and touches in her sides.

Then I saw my guide, this is something which I don’t often see, which is just as well because every time I do it means I or someone in the circle is in danger. Within a matter of seconds, after I had told the guests what I had seen I was just about to say “He’s Gone” when everyone in the room felt a huge relief and we were all able to stand upright. The atmosphere in the room changed from its thick nature when we started to a light an airy nature. The guests could not believe what they had just experienced, especially Teresa who was a sceptic.

After another short break everyone headed out into the courtyard and Women’s Tower. In the top room we have experienced much activity before and as we started Carl (GHE team) stood in the corner of the room that he didn’t like and an area which many guests have felt odd or strange.

Marc (GHE team) and myself were calling out for spirit to make a noise or to whistle. Carl heard some responses although he was wearing an audio amplification device, the rest of us did not hear those sounds.

Once again some of the guests were feeling sick. I had warned them that this may happen, as it has every time we have visited the Women’s Tower. Marc using his Ovulus had the male energy Tony (from the earlier séance) telling us to go outside.

I decided that this was the best opportunity to do an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. Everyone asked a question to spirit and when we played it back we could all hear a response after one of the guests questions. On further analysis we had six spirit voices after a question but during the analysis only four of those could be understood; you can hear them at:-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4YqohaahzU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I-pALBZQ40
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlAIbgzUgWs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIX6Ho7_d0Y

Ted by this time wasn’t feeling well (again!) neither was Carl and both had to leave the room. Marc decided that it would probably be a good idea to hold a séance circle to build the energy and get the spirit energies to do something. After a short amount of time there were energies present and people were feeling strange and odd sensations. Marc then asked if they guests were OK, but Teresa failed to answer. Marc said that her could feel her “going” and I stepped in to place her in the middle of the circle as she did not respond to her name being called out. Once in the circle she came back straight away although she felt very tearful and insisted that she leave the room, so I escorted her outside, where she remained tearful and she explained that she felt the despair and the emotions of the spirit energies that were held there.

This was undoubtedly the most interesting ghost hunt and the most activity felt by the guests that we have held at Rye Castle and I suspect that the reason for this is that we are not allowed to go back until 2013 because the Museum is having some major repair work on the roof of the Women’s Tower and the building will be closed for many months.

All the guests and Ted thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as did we because the EVP’s that we recorded here are some of the clearest that we have recorded to date.

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:-

http://youtu.be/E9j6-qNXG5A
http://youtu.be/PJ8KbdbcWaQ
http://youtu.be/-N86IH7YUx8

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.

Red Lion hotel hen night 9-3-2012

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Hen night ghost hunt at the Red Lion Hotel, Colchester – 9th March 2012.

As a team we were thoroughly looking forward to returning to the Red Lion as it was a brilliant ghost hunt the first time around, this time we were hoping for more of the same. We also came prepared with more of our kit, this time four infra-red remote cameras, which our guests can control throughout the night.

Colchester is a very interesting place, not least because about 30mins before we started a group walked by outside dressed as Cavaliers, random and strange!

The Hen party group had not done anything like this before and my introductory talk didn’t help matters when I told them that we would be predominately in the dark, some guests became scared at this.

However once we spilt into two groups, one heading for the haunted bedrooms, the other into the Parliamentary Restaurant and bar. Each group had a range of electronic kit, namely K2 metres and our ghost communicators, alongside some of our less technical kit, bouncy led balls.

After a while a young male energy 8-9 years old made himself known to me, he was dressed in a smart suit with knee length trousers, not a school uniform and he was from the 1850s and as I said at the time he would have grown up to be a gentleman as he was from a well to do family.

I also sensed another male energy who I met on our last visit, he was a grumpy old bugger as I put it. He mainly stayed near to the bar or public toilet entrance. The guests enjoyed their time communicating with the energy. The energy however didn’t like me the first time and he surely didn’t like me this time. The energy was about 70 years old, fairly short wearing a flat cap and smoking a pipe. Whilst Michelle was communicating with him and asking him to touch her, another guest who was in the restaurant felt a touch on her elbow. During Michelle’s questions I recorded some audio and a very clear EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena, a.k.a. ghost voice) was recorded.

http://youtu.be/Rw3oXpq-Ffs

One of the guests proclaimed his name was Robert. When asked if this was true the communicator responded with a “Yes” answer. The guest in question (Julie) stated that the energy held her hand when we were in the restaurant and that it was a pleasant experience for her. Although at this point Julie was rather tearful.

We also started using the writing planchette and some writing did occur, although the results were not conclusive. All the while Michelle was communicating to the spirit via our ghost communicator.

Our communicator device also flashed quite a lot which we have never seen before. The energy asked if I would move further away, which I duly complied with.

The energy also stood very close to Michelle and during this time our camera was out of focus, as soon as the energy stepped away from Michelle the camera refocused. Although when the energy returned and stood beside another guest (also Michelle) the camera went out of focus again.

Many guests saw a shadow within the restaurant which due to the lighting could have only come from within the restaurant (as the lights were outside on the wall) at the same time everyone heard a sound, although we have no idea what it could have been. Also one of our motion sensors was set off when no-one was near it.

Many guests commented that they felt uncomfortable in the ladies toilet, this seems to be a recurring feature of the ghost hunts that we have undertaken at the Red Lion hotel.

After a short break we headed for the cellar, which is one of the most interesting cellars I have encountered. On speaking to the manager he hold us that there is reputed to be a tunnel which goes to the Castle from these cellar, whether this is true or not remains a mystery.

As usual when a person walk heavily on the gratings outside the noise reverberates throughout the cellar, and when this happens all the guests jump!

A male energy was fairly quick to join us, his name was Archie de Marquis and he proceeded to give the guests some sense of his presence in the form of gentle touching and moving the guests arms.

Many guests felt pins and needles in their arms, cobweb sensations around their faces and numbness throughout their arms.

All in all a very enjoyable evening for the guests and us.

Rye Castle ghost hunt – 17-9-2011

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

Rye Castle (Ypres Tower & Women’s Tower) Ghost Hunt – 17th September 2011

When I first had a look around this venue in the day time, as I do with all the venues, I felt that there was something different about it, something that I couldn’t put my finger on, or even describe, but I knew it was going to be good and a good ghost hunt. Fortunately I wasn’t wrong, it was a brilliant venue with loads of atmosphere and some useful evidence recorded. Since we were limited in numbers, which as it turns out was definitely a good thing, the evidence we all saw, felt and heard was second to none.

The whole group was split into two smaller groups, I headed up to the top floor of the tower whilst the other headed over to the Women’s Tower (their report is separate)

Whilst Ted (our host and volunteer guide for the evening) was giving us a brief outline of the history of the tower and its usage over the years, I could distinctly smell gunpowder, which at the time I attributed to the Museum, it was only later that I told Ted and he confirmed that there was nothing in the Museum that should have smelt of gunpowder.

It didn’t take long from when we started a séance circle for a male energy to step forward, his name was Percival from 1730s he was about 20yrs old 5’7″ in height and was a prison warden or someone who guarded people. He wore a red jacket with a single set of buttons down the front and was wearing a navy blue cap with a gold trim adorned with a badge, not dissimilar to a modern French Gendarme (Policeman). He also wore a belt which had many keys attached and about 12 pieces of white cord like material hanging from his belt. (I have no idea what these are).

He instantly started to push and pull various people in the group and move various peoples arms, our EMF metres were on the outside of the circle and began flashing up to the maximum almost instantly. At one stage everyone heard what sounded like someone moving some heavy piece of furniture on the ground floor, but then Ted (who was sitting in the room) began to investigate and we then heard several more bangs and came to the conclusion that it was fireworks, however the first noise sounded more like it was in the building, but we cannot rule out the fireworks.

Whilst everyone was being rocked or pushed in the circle another energy stepped closer, just behind Graham, which came as no great surprise to him as he was already feeling something behind him. This energy was female, a rather shy girl about 17 years old, but touched Graham’s neck and back several times which made Graham quietly surprised and a bit jumpy, as she didn’t affect any other guest. During this time a spirit energy (I’m not sure who) touched my upper arm, as if they were trying to squeeze past me. Louise also had an energy who was touching her hair and head, Louise described it as if someone was running their fingers through her hair, like a head massage.

I became aware that behind Sean there was yet another male energy but he wasn’t a nice energy, not because of any malice, but he was just unhappy or grumpy and wanted anyone near him to feel the same. He was a very tall man about 6’7″ in height, roughly aged about 35 and wore a basic white shirt with blue strips. He didn’t really say much, just grunts and groans. He did however make the person who stood in front of him feel strange and would exert massive pressure onto them, as if he were pushing them down from the shoulders. He also had this strange coldness about him as the temperature at this end of the room felt much colder than anywhere else. Ted even came over and felt the difference in temperature from inside the circle to the temperature outside the circle and he confirmed there was definitely a real difference. We had begun to rotate the circle, so that everyone could stand in the cold spot and experience that energy, whilst we were doing this Louise exclaimed that she had just heard a women walk behind her, she knew it was a woman because of the sound of the clothing. But it wasn’t a physical person, as Ted (who was the only person not in the séance circle) was sitting on a bench on the other side of the room. This was another female energy, a lady of the night dressed in a maroon/purple dress, who just passed us by.

This room proved to be very useful and gave us many experiences.

After a short break, we swapped locations with the other team, the Women’s tower is a very small tower with an upstairs room and a downstairs room. We headed upstairs, almost instantly a female energy came forward she called herself Maam and she described herself as First Yeomantry, she took an instant dislike to Sean and proceeded to inflict some pain on him. Everyone else was being pushed and gently rocked. The atmosphere however changed almost instantly and I felt an ebergy standing behind me, he was a tall man, about 6’2″ called John Chevalier/Chevaux and he seemed to be the person who cleaned up human excrement. Although I could feel his energy all around me, I was generally feeling fine, I had a headache but nothing more. Then Sean said that my nose looked very different, much bigger and knobbly, Graham also noticed that my face seemed to change, it had become more rounded and fatter. I could obviously not see this, but nevertheless I could feel some odd sensations around my forehead, nose, cheek bones and chin. Most of the group could see that my features were changing and at one point many could not look at me because I was scaring them! Nevertheless I was still sounding like myself (I don’t often do trance, as it scares the guests) so I voluntarily stepped into the centre of the circle to get rid of this energy. He then moved behind Graham and started to do the same thing. I exited the circle and stood alone outside to lure him away from the guests and to give some protection to Graham, but in that short amount of time Graham was feeling dizzy, drained and as he described it, the feeling the day after a heavy drinking session. (Not quite with it as well!). When I re-joined the circle I almost jumped, as I saw in a physical way the back of the spirit energy John walk past me, past Debbie and through the wall behind Graham. This made me jump, because I wasn’t expecting to see this.

After this episode we were about to take a quick break but a child energy arrived and began to twirl Debbie, like a musical box, to and fro for a few minutes. I could not describe her, as I couldn’t see her properly, all I know is that she was about 8 or 9 years old and liked Debbie.

After our little break, we walked into the ground floor room of the Women’s Tower, Debbie who had stayed outside came rushing in, as she said she had heard someone walking on the gravel (no one could get into the yard as the gate was locked, the only people who could have entered the garden were the other group). Graham then decided he would investigate and he too after a few minutes came rushing back in as he had also heard the same noise. I then investigated but did not hear anything until I had turned my back and had just entered the ground floor room.

I started recording with my Audio recorder to see if those noises that we could all hear (from time to time) could be recorded, but alas none of the recordings have any sounds of footsteps or the sound of someone walking on gravel.

However during this period we tried various EVP (ghost voice) recordings and some tapping experiments. At the time we all heard the taps, but like the footsteps, nothing can be heard on the recordings. The EVP experiment on the other hand was very successful, out of the 20 or so recordings there are about 4 really good examples. Two of which are:-

One of the strangest phenomena’s of the night is the lack of photographs, usually in very active places we have untold amount of photographs, with orbs, mists and other anomalies, however this venue out of the five people taking photos only four of us have anything unexplained and the odd thing is that three of us only have one orb photo each.

A very enjoyable night for all that attended and a location that I would like to return to in 2012, as this venue is perfect for a small group.

We would like to thank Peter from the Rye Museum Association for allowing us to investigate Rye Castle (Ypres Tower) and Ted who watched the proceedings on the night.

Rye Castle ghost hunt 2nd Group – 17-9-2011

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

 Kym, Lynn, Lee & Amy

Investigation 1 ~ We started with a séance circle upstairs in the Women’s Tower calling out to spirit to come forward. Immediately we had a young girl called Megan with her two year old brother Toby. She said they shouldn’t be there, did nothing wrong. We sensed Megan would sing and read to her brother. Then we heard a very loud bang next to us, which we felt came from someone banging the large storage box in the room. Nobody was capable of doing it, we were all holding hands, and nobody had moved. After we had all recovered we asked out who had made that noise, and sensed a ‘Lady of the Night’ present, her name was Rula. She wasn’t nice to look at, whiskers on her chin and a wart. When asked who’d want to pay for that, she replied with, someone had to. We continued to hear noises around the room, and a sigh. We then dropped hands, and Lynn took her necklace off to use as a pendulum. This was moved in different ways, vibrating and bending in the middle, very unusual. Shortly after this the EMF lights were lighting up, and a tap on the closed door was heard. We then left the room, and on leaving the downstairs room we heard a tap on the wood.

Investigation 2 ~ We started with a séance circle in the upstairs of the museum. We sensed a male energy, who came forward and started moving us, swaying us in different directions. He looked scruffy, dirty and not nice. Then Lynn got pushed to the ground, and being unable to get back up we broke the circle to recover. We then repositioned ourselves and asked the spirit to give his name, but all we got was you can call me ‘sir’. We sensed he was the big boss and would beat and rape the prisoners. We felt cold spots, and when checking the temperature after it was 17 degrees initially, rising back up to 21 degrees as we watched. During the séance Lee was standing very straight and said he felt very angry. Lynn was also feeling the same. Lights were also seen in the room.

Investigation 3 ~ We went to the walled garden hoping to hear footsteps on the gravel as the earlier group had, but unfortunately nothing.

We all had a fantastic night, and can’t wait to return.

Thurnham Castle Ghost Hunt – 4/6/2011

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

When this event was planned it was March not too warm and very windy, hence why it was planned for June, however on the night it was very windy not very warm and with a threatening thunderstorm that fortunately didn’t spoil our evening.

We started with our picnic in what was the Gatehouse, as this was the least windiest place. We then climbed up to the mound for two reasons, one to look at the amazing view and two to watch the lightening from the passing thunderstorm.

From here we started the ghost hunt, as just behind the mound there was a very active spot, the reasons for this are unknown, but when we held a séance a male energy called Terry or Tel joined us, he was a solider from the Second World War, a Colour Sergeant. He stood approximately 5’11” and of medium build and was well presented. He proceeded to push Lynn and myself, but just on the right hand side until Lynn fell over. He then moved on to me but I was fighting to stand up, but remained upright, he then moved on to Kym and proceeded to push her downwards on the right hand side.

I then conducted an EVP experiment, the results are still being analysed but there are responses from spirit, but whether we can cut out the background noise of the wind remains to be seen.

During this time some people took photos, including me but as yet nothing exceptional has been noticed.

We then moved back into what was the main courtyard underneath some trees, which is always a good place to stand in a thunderstorm [sic].

From here we held another séance and Lynn sensed that a male energy was with us, she thought he may have been Scottish as he was wearing a kilt and his footwear was like a hessian cloth wrapped around his foot and tied together with twine in the shape of a boot. During this séance we all heard various noises but because the wind was quite strong and the trees were rattling (with the wind) we cannot rule out that these noises are fairly normal.

Another male energy stepped forward by the name of Godfrey he seemed to be a fun loving chap and kept showing me various battles he fought in. The amount of physical evidence was quite thin on the ground mainly because the group felt nervous standing under trees when there was a thunderstorm in the distance. The thunderstorm was quite close to us although I did not hear any thunder; the lightening however at times was very bright which we were all keen to watch.

Several photos were taken here and one or two contained bright orbs or light anomalies. These are on our Gallery page.

Our final EVP experiment took place whilst we were around the wall that once surrounded the castle, not least because it was sheltered here. There are at least two EVPs that have been captured however only one can the experts agree what is being said.
