Marwell Hall ghost hunt 24th October 2015
Winchester, Hampshire

marwell-hall-close

This was our fourth time at this venue and we were hoping that some of the previous paranormal occurrences would happen again to corroborate those occurrences. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen as expected although we did have an excellent night.

My séance circles were held downstairs in one of the rear facing rooms and we were joined by a spirit called Richard, a First World War soldier who was wearing puttees, he was 56 years old.

A female spirit called Alice aged in her 40s and a Nanny aged in her 20s were also present. There were also a number of spirit children in the room. This is unusual as I normally do not pick up children due to my dislike of them.

The first group experienced lots of movement, pushing, twisting and unusually we all ended up facing outward, when we started all facing inward. We had no idea how this happened. Towards the end of the session we all heard a child’s trumpet sound.

The second group also experienced lots of movement, but not to the same extent, this time it was just people being pushed and pulled whilst standing.

The third group however experienced lots of movement with everyone being touched, pushed, pulled or swayed as well as being pulled down to the floor by their arms and hands.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with lots of paranormal activity experienced by all those present.

Fort Borstal – 17th October 2015 – Steve

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 17th October 2015
Rochester, Kent

fort-borstal-front

All guests participated in the séance sessions with me in the Counterscarp Galleries.

The first group experienced lots of movement and everyone’s hands touched the floor several times as well as being twisted.

The spirit that was responsible for this was a First World War soldier that I have met before at the fort called Captain Daniel Bedford.

At the end of the session we all heard music that sounded like it was coming from within the counterscarp gallery.

The second group also experienced gentle arm movement, pushing and gentle swaying sensations.

The third group had lots of activity which started with gentle pushing and pulling back and swaying. Jazz (guest) was reluctant to feel spirit after other guests touched his chest with their hands so I moved beside them and Jazz and Gaya were moved gently and twirled. Toward the end of the session Jazz got touched on the back, like a poke.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with everyone having a paranormal experience.

True Crime Museum – 13th February 2016 – Kym

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

True Crime Museum 13th February 2016
Hastings, East Sussex

true-crime-museum

Human Pendulum
This was the first time we had visited the True Crime Museum, and we were all looking forward to the night very much.  Just looking around the museum and seeing the artefacts and stories was disturbing but fascinating.  Who would we talk to tonight?

With only a small amount of guests we kept the group together and each team member took turns to control a session.  Mine was the Human Pendulum, and we had three male spirits that came through, all knowing each other.  The first spirit was a soldier in his 30’s, had lived in Hastings and was married.  He had passed in the First World War, 1915, in water, with an explosion to his face.  Enemy fire from the Germans at the French Maginot Line.  It was very wet and muddy.  His two friends who were with him, who were medics, couldn’t save him.  Donna (guest) was in the circle at the time and she could visualise him with blond curly hair and blue eyes.  I asked all to clear their minds, and I asked spirit to tell us his name.  Donna had the name James, which was correct.  Myself and Kerry (team) had the names Bob and Eric, these were the names of his two friends.

The next spirit was his friend Eric, and confirmed he was with James when he died, he was a medic, and had passed in 1916.

Bob then came through, and again he was a medic and had died in 1916. Bob was married with two children.  His family were farmers, arable farming, in Hastings, but there were houses on his land now.

All three were childhood friends from Hastings.  All three were together when James had died but couldn’t save him.  When talking to James Kerry had felt a feeling on her face and nose, James confirmed there was an explosion on his face when he died.

Charlton House ghost hunt – 10th October 2015

Friday, October 23rd, 2015

Charlton House ghost hunt 10th October 2015
London

We have investigated Charlton House on a number of occasions and it is safe to say that we know that it is haunted and have many reoccurring incidents in various rooms of the house.

However every time we go there I try to investigate a different area or room and move the team around so that they can experience the different spirit energies.

This time around I chose the Library for my séance sessions and several spirits came to join us. We were joined in the first session by an Army Captain from the First World War, he didn’t give me his name but he was aged in his mid-30s. There was also a Priest present who was from a much later time period but he was not a happy fellow, but we really never discovered why he was so unhappy.

Various noises were heard within the room as well as people feeling their arms tingle and move, some people also felt cold spots that came and went but not consistent with a draft.

The second session we were joined by Dave a soldier also from the First World War, Dave was able to manipulate people much more than in the first session, with people being twisted and their legs moved, sometimes against their wishes.

Strange an odd noises were heard throughout this session some of the noises sounded like people walking on the upper mezzanine floor.

The third session we were once again joined by the Priest who was aged in his late-60s, this time around he was able to push and sway people by moving their arms. We were also joined by another soldier called Lincoln who was only able to make people feel tingly and slightly dizzy.

All in all this was a very enjoyable ghost hunt and we look forward to our last visit of 2015 at Charlton House on 20th November

Chelmsford Museum ghost hunt – 27th June 2015

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Chelmsford Museum ghost hunt 27th June 2015
Chelmsford, Essex

This was our first ghost hunt at this museum, although I had visited earlier in the year to see if it was suitable and spirit energies present. I had envisaged that I would work in a particular area come the ghost hunt but as it turned out I didn’t use the area I thought I would.

To start the event we held a tech and equipment session in one of the larger upstairs rooms, this was also one of the cooler rooms as it was June and quite warm outside. We also gave out traditional ghost hunting equipment; dowsing rods and pendulums alongside more modern equipment like KII EMF readers and Ghost Meter Pro’s which are essentially communication devices.

The first group session I used what used to be a drawing room in the old Oaklands House and we were joined by two spirit energies, one a small boy about 7 or 8 years old who was called Scott, the other a Doctor from the early 1900’s called Timothy or Tim. Various people in the group were moved by Tim, however he didn’t touch two people for some reason, but everyone else had either their hands lifted and moved or they were rocked or pushed, sometimes quite quickly to the floor.

The second group session I started in the same room and after some minor spirit activity where some people in the group had their arms moved or felt spirit touch them I moved to another room to see if the spirits would do anything different. The room I chose several people felt unsteady on their feet and although I wasn’t being affected directly, every time I moved closer to those who were, I felt sick and dizzy. Two guests in particular felt themselves being forced towards the floor and once on the floor they were unable to get up. They both reported that they felt pinned down.

The third group session I started in the main hall, which incidentally is where I thought I would hold my sessions. The spirit that was around us and affecting everyone was a First World War Sergeant who didn’t really tell me his name, just what I assume was a nickname “Tinney”. He was about 6 foot in height, of slim build and had a typical moustache for the time period. He had been shot in the neck but survived. Asking the spirit to move people resulted in many people being pushed, swayed, twisted and moved all around the room and onto the floor. Many occasions the whole group except one person ended up on the floor, sometimes pushed against the walls, sometimes against people, sometimes on their own (relative to the rest of the group). This was a fun session for both the spirit and guests.

This was an enjoyable ghost hunt and a location that we look forward to returning in November 2015

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 18-4-2014

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 18th April 2014
Rochester, Kent

This particular venue is a favourite with many of our team, the reason behind this is that we now know what areas of the Fort are the most active and can more or less guarantee some form of paranormal activity when in those particular areas. We look forward to every visit because this fort is very active, very haunted and although we know what to expect, we still get surprised by what happens to the guests.

As always I choose to hold my sessions in the Counterscarp galleries, not only is the area very interesting as it involves walking through a very long tunnel, but it is also the most physically demanding as the staircase goes underneath the dry moat. The level of activity here changes from one investigation to another although there are always similar experiences felt by the guests.

The first group we encountered a male spirit who I have met before in this particular part of the Fort. His name is Biffa or Bernard to his mum, aged in his 30s and another spirit called Justin, both it seems were prisoners who were put to work to build the fort in the late 1800s.

The séance session started with some gentle arm movement, mostly on the instructions of those who asked for it, those guests who didn’t say anything or encourage the spirit to move them remained stationary. Once those guests who were actively encouraging the spirit to move their arms they then asked for the spirit to move or push them. Within a matter of minutes several guests were being pushed, swayed or pulled backwards. Some people were also being moved in circular motions.

The second group to the Counterscarp galleries felt some movement but the majority of the guests wanted to ask questions and conduct their own ghost hunt and use their ghost hunting equipment. It transpired from their questions that the spirit that was present was also a prisoner who had murdered his mother, a dog and prostitutes of Rochester. This spirit died in prison.

On our way out several of us clearly heard footsteps behind us as we walked out of the tunnel and back to the main part of the fort.

The third group we were joined by a familiar spirit (to me) his name was Captain Daniel Bedford, a First World War soldier. Daniel started to move the hands and arms of the majority of guests which quickly transpired into twisting people’s arms together. Several times the people either side of me felt a weight in their arms which resulted in us being dragged down to the floor by our arms. Michelle (guest) said that she didn’t want to face the floor but no matter how many times she said this and resisted the sensation, she ended up on the floor!

Many people of the group were being pulled downwards by their arms, but once on the floor the movements continued and several guests and I were pulled backwards so that we were lying on the floor. This has happened before but never have so many people been involved, it was a chaotic scene with people not only on the floor but arms entwined and to the point where none of us had any idea how we could untangle ourselves and remain holding hands. The spirit however knew exactly how to untangle people, although this wasn’t a quick operation.

At the end of this séance session I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. The results of this will be published at a later date.

Unusually I decided to hold another séance with the intention this time of the spirit moving everyone in turn so that all the guests could feel and hopefully know that they were being moved by unseen hands rather than being pulled by someone they were holding hands with. Daniel complied with this and moved everyone in more gentle ways by pulling them backwards so that each person had to take a step back to avoid falling over. During this time and to avoid people being consciously aware that they were moving all the instructions to the spirit were asked by me as thoughts, therefore none of the guests knew who I was asking Daniel to move, the guests only knew it was them when they found themselves being moved!

At the end of our controlled sessions, we allow the guests to go to the areas that they want to, to conduct their own ghost hunt or to experience a particular area on their own. I joined a group in the Caponier during a Table Tilting & Ouija board session.

As soon as I entered the room I saw a spirit that I had not seen before. He was called Cecil, who was a well-spoken Second World War soldier who was busy moving a table at guest’s request.

I also joined in with the Ouija board which is something I don’t often do, because as I was explaining to the guests I ask questions about things I want to know the answer to, not what the spirit did when they were in a physical body nor anything to do with my life. I want to know the answers to questions which are more spiritual in nature. The spirit energy who was called Robert, another World War Two soldier answered by using the letters and numbers of the Ouija board. Below are the questions and answers.

Q: What colour is the sky in the spirit world?
A: Red.
Q: How many levels of the spirit world exist to your knowledge?
A: 3
Q: What is the largest animal in the spirit world?
A: Oup, a whale

After asking these I then asked the spirit to use the numbers as a scale of difficulty (0-9) for different activities that we ask of all spirit.
Glass work = 3, EVP = 7, Table tilting = 8, Ouija board = 3 or 4, Séances = 9, Manifestation or moving inanimate objects = 99

This was an excellent ghost hunt, with lots of people feeling, sensing and experiencing paranormal activity first hand and participating in paranormal experiments that they had not encountered before.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 18-5-2013

Friday, June 28th, 2013

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 18th May 2013
Chatham, Kent

Fort Horsted is one of our favourite locations, not least because we have investigated here numerous times and had some truly amazing results; it is always entertaining and amazing for one reason or another. This time was no different, although equally strange as no-one could have expected what turned out to be a first for us.

Everyone was split into two groups, which was somewhat larger than normal because one of our GHE team could not attend. However since we know the Fort extremely well this did not deter me & Carl from taking the guests to the most active areas. We also chose two areas that we the furthest from each other so that no noise from either group would affect the other.

The area that I chose is an area which we often hear and feel much the same sort of stuff time after time. We were joined by Annie a female nurse aged in her 20s from The First World War who was stationed at the Fort and a 1960s male spirit who was about 50 years old and quite grumpy.

I started with a séance, as this is the best way for the guests to get a physical experience. Arm movement started to occur quite quickly and usually on command, the guests could ask which way their arms should move in their heads and the spirit would comply. I also had several KII (EMF) meters in the room which also showed spiritual activity. Many whistles, bangs and mumbling voices were heard throughout the séance, which is actually quite normal in this area. One guest felt a touch on their head. When I suggested that guests hold out their hands in a particular area of the room so that Annie could touch them, those guests that participated could feel strange tingling sensations and that their hands were being squeezed and touched and in some cases people felt that their fingers were being pulled apart.

The second group to this area were also treated to the same spirit energies and once again lots of arm movement on command was felt by the guests, as well as lots of more physical movements some of which looked painful, especially as guests were moved in ways which they wouldn’t either choose to move or wouldn’t move as they know it would be painful.

We also moved to an upper room during this session and came across a spirit called Simon who was about 20 years old and smartly dressed. In this room we heard some odd sounds, which I likened to hearing a conversation that we couldn’t hear the words, just the sound of a conversation.

We advised the guests that after the controlled sessions they could venture off on their own, but many didn’t want to so essentially we carried on with controlled sessions and I joined a group doing a Ouija board experiment. The spirit energy was Welsh called something unpronounceable although was happy to be called Caddy. Caddy had difficulty in spelling although he was able to answer some simple Yes or No questions, but the majority of his responses just kept going to the letters G and O “GO”

I took a lot of guests, probably the majority to the Counterscarp Galleries, however very little happened because there were too many people making lots of noise, however one guest did hear her name being called out, which she thought was her friends, but they were with me and neither of them called out.

The stand out moment of the night didn’t happen with me, but happened with Carl in one of the magazine rooms, as the guests were randomly taking pictures, one of them thought that their picture contained a face, so then everyone in that group took a picture and many of them, not all, had photographed a face on the wall. Carl was keen to rule out Pareidolia so looked at the wall and rubbed any loose dust from the wall. Nothing could be seen when he stood in front of the wall, but when he stood back and some more photos were taken, the face could easily be seen and photographed. Below is the picture taken by the guest and we have circled the area to look at.

Face at Fort Horsted

Photo from ghost hunt taken by Hannah Bune

I too investigated this phenomenon and have several photographs and I don’t really have a credible explanation for this, as we have hundreds of photos and videos from this Fort and of this room and we have never seen anything like this. If indeed it is a pareidolia effect then surely we would be able to all see it all the time. Which was not the case on the night.

Several EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments were undertaken throughout the night, but unfortunately nothing audible, or clearly audible could be heard in the recordings. In all of the possible EVP’s, we can hear the start of a response, but the background noise or noise made by a guest talking or shuffling ruins the possible EVP. Which is a shame as we have had many great EVP’s recorded at Fort Horsted.

All in all this was a great ghost hunt, with lots of physical and unexplainable paranormal activity felt by the guests throughout the night.

Rowfant House ghost hunt – 6-4-2013

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

Rowfant House ghost hunt 6th April 2013
Crawley, West Sussex

Rowfant House is one of the secret gems of the countryside, once owned by a very important and influential family who let Winston Churchill stay during the Second World War and is now home to the Latvian Lutheran Church in England.

We had no idea what to expect at this ghost hunt as it was the first ghost hunt undertaken at this venue by anyone. We were not disappointed as activity seemed to happen all night long.

All the guests were split into three smaller groups which were headed by different members of the GHE team, I had commandeered a bedroom for my sessions as I felt that something terrible happened in this room. It was also the same room that Churchill used when he stayed at Rowfant House.

There were two spirit energies that were present all night with me, the first was Captain Terry McLoughlan, aged in his early 30s and was in what is now the RAF and from the First World War era. Terry was of slim build, about 5’10” in height with light brown hair. He was dressed in a very smart uniform. The second was Annabelle, aged in her early 20s with long brown hair wearing a dirty white dress. She suffered from Eczema and when I first noticed her she had a smell of ammonia about or associated with her.

The first group to enter this room felt some unusual cold spots and high levels of KII EMF energy along with some long conversations on our communication devices. Many guests smelt carbolic soap throughout the session.

During the séance some guests felt arm movement along with some pushing and swaying which was Terry making himself known. After the séance some guests sitting down felt tingling sensations and very heavy heads, others who were all sitting on the sofa felt very serene and relaxed. The person who was sitting in a chair favoured by Winston Churchill felt very depressed (they did not know at that time that it was Churchill’s chair, this I told them after the session had finished).

Many of the guests took photos during the session, some of which contained light anomalies or orbs.

The second group, in this room smelt soap once again, although two guests thought that it may have been bleach. During the session there were many strange flashes of light seen outside the windows, had it been thundery then I would have said it was lightening, but it wasn’t. Just after one of these flashes some guests thought they saw a face outside the window. It wasn’t a real person because we were on the first floor! However it remains unexplained what they saw.

Andy (guest) whilst sitting in a chair felt very important and I didn’t tell him until after the session finished that this was Churchill’s chair. Others who were sitting in the same seats as the first group felt the complete opposite (of the first group) many feeling uncomfortable and edgy. I felt very dizzy and I was sitting on the bed.

The third group had the most physical activity and during the séance, which included lots of arm movement, pushing and pulling the guests backwards and twisting arms behind people’s backs. One guest felt sick and had to leave the room. Many times our hands were moved in a circular motion, sometimes in mid-air and sometimes close to the floor, why remains a mystery. Jason (guest) and I were pulled by our arms to the floor. A third spirit energy came into the room towards the end of the session, he was a mischievous male energy who wanted to touch certain people in the group and many guests felt a cob web sensation around their face.

Once again some of us who were facing the window saw strange flashes of light outside, although we still have no explanation as to what could have caused this.

After the séance had finished I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice experiment. Many of the guests’ questions had some sort of response although we couldn’t work out what they all said.

The best results of this experiment can be heard at:-

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 29-3-2013

Friday, May 17th, 2013

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 29th March 2013
Rochester, Kent

Every time we return to Fort Borstal the event gets more interesting, more stuff happens to more people, this time around was no different, although this time the activity that happened wasn’t pleasant.

I usually hold my sessions in the counterscarp galleries because just getting there is a physical challenge in itself, 232 steps to be precise, but to me it is a really interesting area where paranormal occurrences are normal.

The first session there was a male spirit present called Capt Daniel Bedford, he is a spirit who I have often seen in the counterscarp galleries. He is a tall slim built First World War soldier who carries a crop and undoubtedly would have used this as part of his command style. The resulting séance started with people feeling a tingling sensation in their hands and arms, which progressed to their arms actually moving (which is what I asked for amongst other phenomena). After the majority of people felt their arms move, Daniel became braver with his actions and many people saw their own hands being rubbed across the chins of other guests and themselves. These actions also increased along with the phenomena of being pushed and pulled backwards which to some guests was unnerving as they had no idea when this would affect them. Many times various different people’s arms would fly across to hit Ross (guest) in the face, but fortunately every time he was able to duck and dive out of the way as I could feel or know when a lunge was coming. Cold spots were also felt by the guests, which in this particular fort is unusual because all the exterior holes are sealed and the weather outside has no impact on the conditions felt inside.

There was also another male spirit energy present, his name was David and he was a convict, he approached us with caution and did not interact although he did speak to me briefly. He was a Cockney and of a stocky build.

The second session that I undertook in the counterscarp galleries more or less started how the first finished. The same spirit energies were present and the séance started with arm movements almost immediately interspersed with pushing and pulling sensations, twisting and turning people into odd positions and dragging them downwards on to the floor. Once again many people felt cold spots and breezes which are unusual. Many people arms were moved in such a way that it looked like they were trying to be strangled by other people’s arms. Other guests were moved and pushed towards the wall. Several attempts were made to lunge at people, although once again I could feel it coming 1 or 2 seconds before the action took place and could warn whichever guest the action was intended for. However there was a moment when my attention was gravitated towards another young male spirit who should not have been there and needed help. He was a young (17 years old) male who passed away during a relatively recent (1997) motorcycle crash on a road not far from the Fort and whilst I was engaged with him and trying to help him a lunge of people’s arms hit one of my team members in the face (Kym) and then the second lunge which was more like a punch hit a guest in the shoulder.

During the séance Matt (guest) saw light orbs and another guest felt very aggressive, as I have met this guest on several of our ghost hunts I knew that this was not in his nature and I called an immediate end to the séance. The guest that felt aggressive asked me to come over to him as he “wasn’t feeling right” and I gave him some emergency healing to take away the aggression. As everyone was recovering from the active séance we could all hear a strange mumbling noise which included the sound of whistles and whispering. The whispering sound seem to come from further along the tunnel in the direction of the other counterscarp gallery.

When I asked whether the guests would like to walk down to those galleries some guests didn’t want to venture down there on their own! So we all went down to that area, although nothing was seen or heard once we arrived.

After these sessions the guests were allowed to wander freely, some but not many wanted to go back to the counterscarps and I joined a group in the Officer’s Mess area. Various spirits were encountered in this area, the majority looked to be female Nurses or Second World War clerks. Carl (GHE team member) who was sitting in a chair noticed that the chair was swaying and moving which he found odd although his instruments detected high levels of EMF and huge temperature fluctuations which coincided with the chair moving.

This was a very enjoyable ghost hunt where the majority of guests had a very unusual night and many paranormal occurrences. This was one of our more memorable ghost hunts at this location and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the experience, even those who were pushed to the floor or lunged at.

Several EVP’s (Electronic voice phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments were undertaken by the team but we have not had any confirmation from our experts of actual ghost voices.

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 1-3-2013

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 1st March 2013
Rochester, Kent

Once again the team were just as excited as the guests to return to Fort Borstal for the first of our visits to this magnificent fort in March, it was also the first of four Forts for the month of March.

This was our third visit this year and one thing that we have started to notice is that activity here happens to people in small groups of four or five people, any more than that and the activity is lessened.

As usual my area for the night was the counterscarp galleries since the majority of the team don’t like the staircase (200+ steps)

The first group we started in the left hand side of the galleries and almost immediately there were high levels of KII activity as well as some electronic communication. Various spirits were present including a couple of sergeants from The Second World War, a lady and a child.

Some guests felt touches on their legs and there was a strange breeze in the tunnels which was very unusual because there are no holes or gaps to the outside and once the door is closed (which it was) there should be no airflow within the complex.

Many guests and I also heard strange mumbling sounds and many guests were extremely jumpy in the dark, so much so that they didn’t want to do a séance, as that would have meant standing in the dark.

The second group to this area we started a séance almost immediately as I could see that the spirit were eager to show the guests what they could do. The spirit was called Captain Daniel, he looked to be a First World War soldier but he didn’t actually tell me.

Initially this started with lots of arm movement which then slowly progressed onto people hands being pushed into other people and poking them in the stomach. From this point as the spirit got more used to moving people he started to push people forwards and pull them backwards. Darren (guest) who was standing to my left felt that he was being held in place, as if someone was stood behind him, stopping him from moving. Darren felt this as well and kept looking behind him during the séance.

At the end of this session I held an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. There were many responses but the experts (independent Sound Engineers) and I couldn’t agree on the words being spoken, some of this was due to noise of the guests shuffling their feet or putting their hands in their pockets during the recording. The best one from this session can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/HDePzen8ZF0

After this experiment I let the guests wander throughout all the galleries with some of our electronic equipment. High levels of EMF energy (Electromagnetic Fields) were picked up on our KII meters as well as some levels of electronic communication.

The third group to the counterscarp galleries had the most activity, as we went straight into a séance and the same spirit (Captain Daniel) was present and eager to demonstrate his presence to the guests. Arm movement started immediately and progressed around the circle until just about everyone had their arms moved and then Daniel moved onto pushing guests forwards and pulling them back as well as swaying them from side to side. Some guests were pulled by their hands to the ground. When asking for certain people to be moved (pushed or pulled) this usually happened on command until the majority of guests had been manipulated in some way.

At the end of this session I held another EVP experiment, once again there were lots of responses but there was too much background noise (from people) that hampered the technical analysis, however the best ones can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/DMDCz0vxbpU

http://youtu.be/doino0rTRKA

Once again the guests were free to wander throughout the rest of galleries.

The rest of the night the guests were allowed to wander freely around the Fort to visit areas or activities they enjoyed the first time around with our equipment and to hold their own ghost hunt or do a solo vigil.

Once again the guests thoroughly enjoyed their ghost hunt with us and many had some very unusual paranormal experiences.
