Red Lion Hotel – 28th May 2016 – Kym

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 28th May 2016
Colchester, Essex

red-lion-hotel-01

Area: Rooms 6 & 7
Equipment: Scrying, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums & Glass Work
With all four groups we started with scrying and were all seeing similar images: older female, with wrinkles, one side of the face and eye dropping, a male with a goatee beard, and a wide grin, with a lip curl sometimes.  Would see shadows moving behind the reflection of people too.  With the rods & pendulums all were able to communicate with the spirits.
We then tried glass work, and had little movement on most groups, but one group we had the spirit of a male, who had died in this room (room 6) in the 1900’s from a sudden illness.  We asked if he had a message, responded with yes, asked if he needed help going to the light, again responded with yes, so we did our best to guide him.
With the first group doing glass work in room 7, myself and Karl & Charlie (guests) were feeling the energy of a spirit next to us.  It felt colder, static/tingly, and the air just felt thicker.  We moved in different places in the room, and the feelings were moving with us.

With one group (hen party) we also did the Human Pendulum in room 7, and had the spirit of a little boy with us.  He didn’t know his age or the year he passed.  He did die of an illness, some of his family did too.  He had lived here in this building, and had a sister.

With the free session I joined a group of guests wanting to try some table tipping, so we set up in the bar area.  The table started moving, very gently, then would lift up one side but do no more.  Whilst doing this I felt and saw what I though was someone walk behind me, when I looked no-one was there.  Two of the guests felt and saw the same.
A fantastic night at the Red Lion Hotel – we all love coming here.

True Crime Museum – 13th February 2016 – Steve

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

True Crime Museum 13th February 2016
Hastings, East Sussex

true-crime-museum

On this first ghost hunt (at this location) I thought I would aim for something that many wouldn’t; 13 people on the 13th February. It proved to be a good decision as we had lots of activity on Ouija board and table tilting as well as the séance held in part of the museum called the Death Chamber.

During the séance we had a number of spirit present, the two most prominent ones were an Army Captain and a Bobby (an old fashioned Policeman) both of whom were able to move us beyond what we thought possible. Some of the movements were painful, but were actually on command of what someone had asked for, not necessarily the people who were being moved!

The Ouija board had lots of communication as well as our electronic gadgets and dowsing rods and pendulums.

It was an interesting ghost hunt and a location we look forward to returning to in the summer.

Colchester Town Hall – 28th November 2015 – Louise

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 28th November 2015
Colchester, Essex

colchester-town-hall

Area: Kitchen and adjoining rooms
Equipment: Table tipping / dowsing rods

Session 1: group C
I started this session in the Kitchen area. Working on two tables it was decided that the group split into two smaller groups so there was an even number of guests on the table. I explained to the guests to put one hand lightly on the tables and I stood on the middle of the room and called spirit forward to come and move the tables in some way. Initially there was no movement, one of the tables then started to gently rock back and fourth but no more movement even with encouragement from the group. At this point the guests decided to split up and take the tables to separate rooms to see if the spirit activity would be stronger. One group had no movement at all from the table even with my encouragement and theirs. So I decided to try the group with the dowsing rods. After explaining how they work to the guests showing a movement for yes and a movement for no, they all began to get activity and all started to asks questions. A couple of spirits came through that of a little girl and male spirit in his 50’s. However no more information was received. In the other room the group had the table moving and the K2 that I had placed on the chair was lighting up. I asked spirit if they could possibly light the K2 up to amber and hold it there and it did so, a which point the table started tipping on to one leg and spinning round really fast. All the guests started laughing and the K2 lit right up to red. After some more encouragement from the guests the table started to walk and went out of the door and right along the corridor stopped for a while and then walked straight back into the room. As the activity from spirit was so great, I decided to ask the guests if they would like to move one of the bigger tables in the room. The table I can only describe as a long school dinner table. We all placed our hands on the table and immediately the table started to tremble. Vanessa and Marie (guests) called out to spirit to ask possibly if they would move the table for us instead of making it tremble. Then all of sudden taking us all by surprise it started rocking really forcefully back and fourth.

Session 2: Group A
This group were the VIP’s being looked after by Kym (Team). It was decided that we all start the session back in the Kitchen area. Again initially the tables didn’t move, so I asked the group to encourage spirit to move the tables to which they did. Both tables slowly started to move just gently rocking back and fourth. Kym (Team) then decided to take a group into another room. My group and I stayed on the table in the kitchen as it had really started to move. The guests asked spirit to show them more with table to prove that they could do more. A this point the table tipped up on to one leg spun round in an anti-clockwise direction and walked us out into the corridor and straight into the other room where all the activity had taken place on the first session. The table walked right up to Kym’s group and stopped. Both tables then stopped moving. But we noticed that the K2 was lighting right up to red. I asked spirit to take it back down to the green light which it did, then asked if they would take it back up to red if we moved into the kitchen area and move one of the big tables in there, it shot straight up to red. After placing our hands on the table and calling out to spirit the table completely spun round in a full circle. We could not believe that this was happening. The table then stopped and we could here taps, bangs and scraping noises coming from under the table and we could also feel the vibrations through our hands. One of the guests asked spirit if they could possibly do that again for us and it did so straight away. At this point I and one other guest saw a shadow figure pass by the doorway. We went to investigate and the temperature in the corridor had dropped significantly.

Session 3: Group B
This session was started in the Kitchen. Initially there was no response from spirit even with encouragement from the guests. The table then stated to move very slowly rocking then suddenly started to spin went up on to one leg and held this position. With encouragement from Janet (guest) the table started to walk out into the corridor and down the stairs. This amazed the guests, so as we were getting a lot of activity from spirit, Janet (guest) decided that we move on to one of the big tables that I can only describe as a school dinner table. The table immediately started to rock back and fourth forcefully. At the same time during the session a number of guests saw shadow figures walking along the corridor and disappearing into the other room.

Old Beneficiary School – 5th December 2015 – Louise

Old Beneficiary School ghost hunt 5th December 2015
Portsmouth, Hampshire

groundlings-theatre

Area: In front of the stage
Equipment: Table Tipping/ Ouija Board and Dowsing Rods

I started all the sessions on the Ouija board. Not everyone wanted to participate in this activity but all were more than happy to watch. The guests sat round the table and I asked spirit to step forward and come and communicate with us by moving the glass. Very little happened and the glass didn’t move despite all the encouragement to spirit to come and tell us their story. I told the guests to keep encouraging as I went to join two other guests that had started to work on the table tipping. Initially this was also very slow to start, but then the table began to gently rock from side to side. At this point a really cold sensation passed right through us as we heard a loud bang come from the wall right beside us. Jason (team) called out to spirit to make the again if that was them to make the noise again and straight away the noise was heard again but louder. With More encouragement from the guests on the table the table slid itself across the floor to the Ouija table and stopped.  As there was no movement from the glass the remaining guests decided to join us on the table. Shuffling noises and loud footsteps were heard coming from the on the stage and got us all a bit worried at this point. On investigation nothing was found but the footsteps carried on throughout the rest of the session. As there was now more energy on the table it started to rock back and fourth tipped on to one leg and spin us around. One of the guests asked spirit if they could walk the table to the door before we leave. To out surprise the table very gently started to walk towards the door. All encouraging spirit saying how well they were doing the table then walked very quickly and stopped very abruptly when it reached the door. Activity stopped at this point except that we thought we heard laughter of small children as we left the room.

Colchester Town Hall – 28th November 2015 (Kerry)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Town Hall ghost hunt 28th November 2015
Colchester, Essex

colchester-town-hall-front

The Mayor’s Parlour – Pendulums, Ouija, Writing Planchette

At the start of my first session we began by using the pendulums, and each guest had movement although some were taking longer to get going than others. Most of the guests established their yes and no directions and were communicating with spirit either out loud or in their heads.

We didn’t have much movement with the glass when doing Ouija, as it seemed spirit did not want to communicate in this way and kept moving the glass to goodbye.

We did however have a very successful session with the writing planchette, as it started moving more or less straight away, and was continuously doing so around the paper. We kept asking spirit to draw something for us or write their name or initial, and when we looked at what had been drawn, it looked like a bird. We also had a lot of activity on the ghost pros, and it was as though two different spirits were arguing with each other, as one kept contradicting the other. During this time, we started to hear taps on the table next to us where no one was sitting. I then asked spirit to copy my taps, to which it immediately did so. Guests were amazed by this, and a few of them also did some taps, to which spirit once again responded.

In another of my sessions spirit drew the letter J and the letter I with the writing planchette.

During my final session we contacted a spirit named Robert via the Ouija. He told us he was from 1865 and had a wife called Gill and a 6-year-old son, Anthony. He then told us that his son was strangled by a man called George, so Robert killed George and then killed himself by running under a horse and cart. He said that George was always with him tormenting him, and that they are both bad men. We asked Robert if he had a message for us, and he spelt out “will see you”. When asked if he meant he will see us in the cells downstairs, as this is where we were planning to go afterwards, he responded with yes.

At the end of the night we had a free session so we went down to the cells, and myself and Kym held a séance with the guests. Some of the guests including myself were being pushed slowly to the right and a couple of people’s arms were raised. We also heard some whistles, which sounded like they were coming from one of the cells.

Charlton House – 20th November 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Charlton House ghost hunt 20th November 2015
Greenwich, London

charlton-house

Area: Long Gallery
Equipment: Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Ouija

Having a quick walk around with Louise (team) I saw a dark shadow of a person on the stairs.  We continued upstairs and whilst setting up with Louise we both had an uneasy feeling in one of the upstairs room, and whilst trying some table tipping in that room a door started moving, when checking inside, seeing nothing, Louise closed the door and it was pulled shut with force from her hand.  Louise decided she wanted to work in that room, and as we went to leave we heard what sounded like one of the chairs moving across the carpet, but couldn’t see any chair, or table had been moved.  On leaving again we heard the same noise again, but again couldn’t see anything that had moved.  The third time whilst walking out we heard it again but again saw nothing different.

With my first group we started with a séance circle to invite the spirit to join us, and whilst doing this one of the guests noticed his torch (which was turned on) move on the table.  Starting with the Ouija we were hearing noises and creaks around us, but with no movement on the glass we tried with the dowsing rods & pendulums.  The guests were communicating with two spirits, a husband and wife who had lived here.  We tried to work out the year, but we all had different: 1550’s, 1800’s and 2000’s.  Alex saw a light/orb with his eyes, and was getting a lot of activity in the area he was standing, using his dowsing rods.

With my second group we were communicating with spirits using the rods & pendulums, and whilst using the Ouija we were seeing shadows and hearing noises in the room.  But with only a little movement with the glass, we went to explore the adjoining rooms.  We were all drawn to the top of the staircase, sensing a female spirit that may have been pushed here.

With the last group, we tried the Ouija at the top of the staircase and did get some slight movement, but not enough to communicate.  However, myself and Eve (guest) were getting a sharp stabbing pain to the back of our heads, felt very sore and burning.  Tom’s (guest) head torch had also started flashing, and to our surprise when we asked for the flashing to stop/start it would do so on command.

Upnor Castle – 31st October 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Upnor Castle ghost hunt 31st October 2015
Rochester, Kent.

The team had all been looking forward to this event most of the year – the last time I had been to Upnor Castle was nearly 10 years ago on a similar paranormal night.  It had not been visited since by any other paranormal group.  When we arrived, and on chatting to the staff, the spirit activity had increased considerably in the last week – were the spirits excited about our visit as much as us?
I started the night with Kerry in the tunnel doing a human pendulum.  The first spirit that came through was male, John, a British soldier and was murdered here in the 1600’s.  His brother was Peter, and later his mother Jane joined us.
With my second group again we had the spirit of John, but different from before.  Although he was a British soldier, he had died from typhoid.  We also had the spirit of a Dutch soldier who was captured and kept here as a prisoner.  He was a surgeon and operated on the Dutch prisoners.  When he died he was thrown in the River Medway.  He had fell in love with a Dutch woman here, however she had married a British soldier, but was murdered by her husband.
With the last group, who were all friends, several spirits came through but were mostly connected to the guests.

In the second half of the evening I was working in the Barracks Building, with the assistance of Wayne.  We were using dowsing rods and pendulums to communicate with the spirits.  The staff were keen to stay with us as this is where they had been experiencing lots of different things in the last week.  On entering the building and walking up the stairs, Wayne felt a could touch to his neck, which he also felt in the corner of the far upstairs room.  When using his pendulum to communicate with the spirit, it was a female energy here that had touched him.  I was with Sarah (staff) and were talking to a male spirit using dowsing rods.  He was a British Officer aged 25.  Sarah wanted to know his name, so we both asked spirit to try telling us.  I had the name Terry – short for Terrence – Sarah had the name Edward.  Spirit confirmed his name was Edward Terrence.  Edward also confirmed the experiences Sarah had had were all from him.  Also another member of staff had seen a spirit previously, had quickly drawn a sketch of what she had seen, and Edward confirmed that was him.  Whilst someone was sitting in a chair in the shop downstairs, she felt coldness on her lap as if someone was sitting there.  Sarah also whilst standing on a trap door at the top of stairs, felt it try and lift up under her feet.  On checking we could see it was impossible to lift up.  I stood there and twice I felt a vibration under my foot when nobody else was moving.  We could feel coldness in front of us too.  Wayne then went to get his Rem pod and placed it on the trap door, and several times it went off.  We tried to de-bunk it by moving/running on the stairs, opening/closing the door downstairs, but each time you had to do it with force to set the rem pod off, which we know no-one had done at that time.
An amazing night at Upnor Castle – can’t wait to return!

Fort Borstal – 30th October 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 30th October 2015
Rochester, Kent.

fort-borstal-front

Area: Caponier
Equipment: Rods, Pendulums, Ghost Pro, KII, SB7, Ovilus III, Mel Meter
Once everyone knew how to use the rods & pendulums (some were familiar to the equipment), we all communicated with the spirits there, of which were several.  We were feeling coldness around us, and felt like we were being touched too.  We also heard a loud male breath near us.  We then used the rest of the equipment, and felt there was a spirit in the corridor.  Every now and again he would come into the room, then venture back out to the corridor.  The Mel Meter showed the temp to be 13 degrees, and 0.4 to 0.5 mg.  We also had various words on the Ovilus, but nothing on the SB7.  With the second group again we had spirit communication using all the equipment.  On the Ovilus we had the following words: general – pat – fly – Africa – disaster.  Were we talking to the pilot that had come down here at the fort.  With the controlled sessions over I joined most of the guests and Trudi (team) back in the caponier doing Ouija and table tipping.  Both were very active, with the guests amazed by what they were able to experience.

Fort Horsted – 17th October 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 17th October 2015
Chatham, Kent.

fort_horsted_11

Area: Room 35
Equipment: Dowsing Rods, Pendulums
Group A – We started with a séance circle, and invited spirit to join us.  Many could feel the energy change around them when the spirits stepped close.  The guest to my right (Peter), his left arm started moving up, but very gently, and almost immediately went straight back down.  Guests were seeing lights flashing on the wall and people.  We moved around to see if others could see the same, and they were.  We were also seeing shadows around us too.  Sean (filming) was watching his torch on a shelf, and it kept disappearing from view.  He showed us all through the camera which we saw too.  Some were being pushed and pulled, and feeling cold spots around us too.  With not much more movement we tried the pendulums and rods.  We had a male spirit with us, he worked here and was military.  He said there were other spirits here with us.  With another team member saying that they had tried chair tipping in this room successfully before, we had a go.  Initially we divided the guests on two chairs.  I stood with one group touching a chair and immediately started feeling very dizzy.  I swapped with Dave (guest) and he felt the same.  But Peter & Leanne didn’t feel it when standing there.  The other chair was moving so we all switched to that one.  With all lightly touching the chair, it started moving.  Slowly it started lifting up.  It tried to spin around but fell down.  Tried again, but just lifted up.  Some tried pushing the chair back down and could feel resistance.

Group B – Started with the séance circle, and Colin (guest) to my right was getting pushed, pulled and twisted.  Cold spots were being felt by some around the circle.  We were also hearing noises/footsteps near us too.  With no more movement we did some dowsing and all had quite a lot of communication with spirit.  We were talking to a male spirit connected to the fort.  We tried some chair tipping but had no movement, so decided to go down the whistling tunnel nearby.  However just on entering we heard a whistle between us, thinking initially it was one of us whistling ourselves, but with clarification from everyone that they had not done it, we were quite happy to have heard it.

Group C – Starting with the séance circle many were being gently rocked to and fro.  Then some guests started having their arms moved up and down.  Asking them to ask spirit in their head to move their arms where they chose, they were amazed when spirit responded to their request every time.  Myself and guest to my left were both feeling a heavy weight on our shoulders, and started to be pushed down.  Others were being pushed down too.  Also a lot of laughter was expressed around the circle.  Some felt like they were being touched, and felt cold spots too.  We then tried some communication with spirit using the rods & pendulums, and spoke to male and female spirits.  We then went to the whistling tunnel, and again heard a whistle between us whilst entering.
In the free session I joined some guests in a new area, a long tunnel above Area 10.  Then I joined Kerry & guests in room 35 where they had been experiencing some fantastic Ouija & table tipping.  We then finished the night with some Ouija in area 10.
A fantastic night – fabulous guests – and an awesome venue!

Explosion Museum – 24th July 2015 (Kym)

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Explosion Museum ghost hunt 24th July 2015
Gosport, Hampshire

Area: Officers Admin Building
Equipment: Pendulums and Dowsing Rods

Group B – This was a lovely old untouched building, with a tremendous amount of atmosphere to it, and I wanted the guests to enjoy exploring and feeling the energies around them.  With Louise’s assistance we showed the guests how to use the rods & pendulums, establishing their yes & no’s, and then communicating with spirit.  We had a male spirit with us initially who worked here in the 1900’s.  The spirit said there were more than 10 spirits in this building with us.  Everyone then went off to explore, myself I ventured to the opposite end of the corridor into a small room and immediately felt like I was being punched in the stomach, not a physical feeling could just sense this.  I felt there were two men in here that had fought.  Louise joined me and said what she had picked up here: A male spirit called Arthur, worked in the building, died in the 1950’s age 41, was married with two children.  His wife had died during childbirth in her 30’s, his children are still alive.  He worked with his brother who also died here, they didn’t get on and fought alot, and a possible fight here.  Whilst on her own later Louise asked spirit to give her a sign, and she had pins & needles suddenly in her left hand.  We stayed for a short while talking to the spirits, I asked for the spirits name I was talking to and was given the name Peter, Louise said she was also given this but when asked if that was the spirits name her pendulum said no, I asked if I was talking to Arthur’s brother called Peter, and my pendulum said yes.  Peter also confirmed there was a fight in this room with his brother.  He was here 1925-1950, and died aged 47.

We joined the guests downstairs, and one guest said he felt uncomfortable in the bathroom and wouldn’t enter that room.  We went with him, and could feel the energy when entering that room.  It felt like a static energy all around us.  I sensed someone had been strangled here, and could feel pressure on my throat.  Louise was also picking up on the same.  All three of us could feel the energy, but also quite bizarrely we all felt it suddenly go at the same time.

Group A – Again we started in the large end room upstairs with showing the guests how to use the rods & pendulums.  We asked spirit what this room was used for and it was the recreation room.  Louise had connected with a female spirit called Mary, she had worked here, and died here, age 49 in 1944.  She worked here in the war as a maid/housekeeper.  She had not married and had no children.  A guest (Kim) joined her, and Louise asked her to see what she could find out from the spirit, and Kim got exactly the same, including the name Mary.  I was with the remaining guests who were initially picking up on the two brothers from earlier, and were surprised by the amount of energies in the room, with rods & pendulums spinning erratically.  We all then went downstairs, and could hear noises, at first thinking they were from upstairs, then realising they were in a room next to them, followed the noise.  They sensed they were talking to a mischievous male spirit.  Louise took Kim (guest) to the bathroom that we felt the energy in earlier, and with no knowledge from myself of Louise, Kim could feel the energy, could sense someone had been strangled, and by using her rods had confirmation that someone was murdered here by strangulation.

Area: Grand Magazine
Equipment: Ouija, Table Tipping, Writing Planchette

Group B – I had now moved to the Grand Magazine and started with five guests and myself on the ouija, and Louise with two guests trying table tipping.  The table started moving very gently at first, and establishing their yes & no found out they were talking to two children.  Then the table started moving with a lot more energy, and was able to confirm this was now a male spirit.  On the ouija we didn’t have any movement on the glass, but did feel the table move.  We did try asking spirit to move the table, but with no movement we switched to the writing planchette.  Although we didn’t get any drawings, the planchette did move up and down, and the guests were able to communicate with the spirit this way.  I did join the others on the table tipping, and asked spirit to lift the table up so we could all feel how strong the spirit was by trying to push the table back down, which was incredibly hard.  Two male guests tried the ouija and had some glass movement with the letters P D Q then the glass went to goodbye.  The five guests then tried some table tipping together and had some movement, whilst I joined the two ladies on the ouija.  We had a male spirit called Mark, from 1824 and was married with 4 children.  He didn’t work here, but did live here.

Group A – This group of guests had a lot of experience talking to spirit so didn’t really need our assistance, so initially Louise & I asked spirit to move a chair whilst we rested our hands on it.  And to our surprise the chair started rocking quite fast, and did twist slightly.  I then joined the guests as they had stopped the table tipping and were asking spirit to move the glass on the table for yes & no answers.  They were talking to a 13 year old boy, who worked on HMS Victory as a powder monkey.  He knew Nelson and was involved in battlement on the ship, and had died in combat on the ship, although it did not sink.  He was at the battle of Trafalgar.  He gave the year initially as 1850.  They were fighting the Spanish.  They were also able to establish the spirit’s name was William Henry.  We then switched to the ouija table and the spirit stayed with them.  Asking spirit to spell his name, he gave us William Henry.  Asking for his family name he spelt FUGR twice.  Asking if he meant Fergus – confirmed yes.  He also confirmed he was 13 years old, but the year was 1803.  He had 4 brothers and 1 sister.  He was the middle child.  His mother died in childbirth.  His father and other children fought too.  William died in an accident, a canon had backfired.

Some guests wanted to return to the Admin Building with the Ouija and when they came back said they had spoken to the female spirit Louise & Kim had spoken to earlier, and she confirmed her name was Mary Smith.  Also they took the Ouija in to the bathroom and spoke to the sprit(s) there and confirmed that a man was strangled there because he was gay.

Wow – what an amazing place – still didn’t explore everywhere so definitely looking forward to coming back!
