Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 1-11-2013 (Jo)

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 1st November 2013

On this event I spent the evening in room 36 and The Whistling Tunnel, using various different electronic devices, taking four groups separately. In all sessions we began with a short 5 minute circle to build energy in the room.

Group 1: Although we had some information given to us via the ghost pro ( a device in which yes/no question may be asked, and spirit can flash the light accordingly to answer, e.g. one flash for yes, two for no), this was by far a more audible session. As a group we all heard footsteps coming towards us and a strange dragging noise in the tunnel leading to the room, which could not be explained however hard we tried! There were also some strange dark shadows in the door way, which most of the group witnessed.

Group 2: This session was very similar to the previous one, much the same information on the ghost pro, a male spirit who had worked at the Fort during WW2, a very private man, not wanting to say to much about himself. Also the spirit of what seemed to be a lady cleaning, we all heard something that sounded like a woman humming a tune during this time.

As well as the ghost pro, we also used a device called Ovilus 3, which allows spirit to use their energy to create a word. Strangely enough spirit told us Dirty (relevant to the lady cleaning possibly?) Spirit also used the word Soldiers, on more than one occasion. After a while we moved from 36 around to the whistling tunnel, where the entire group again witnessed shadows and heard footsteps coming towards us. We also saw many flashing lights at either end of the tunnel.

Group 3: This was the quietest session of the night, although some flashes on the ghost pro and slight k2 activity, there was not really much to report.

Group 4: I had a group of young lads in my last session of the night, and I have to be honest, I thought the worst, that maybe they were a bunch of jokers. How wrong was I! They spotted a stack of plastic chairs in the room and wanted to sit down, so I suggested we sat around in a circle quietly and see what happens. Once we had made ourselves “comfortable” we began to ask out. I had a Mel meter (an all in one temperature Gauge, EMF and rem pod) on the side, about 6ft away form everybody. I asked spirit to walk toward the Mel meter and set the rem pod (lights up and alarms when the energy field is interrupted) off. This happened immediately, and then when asked for again a few minutes later, the same happened. Since I have owned this piece of equipment, it is the first time it had happened, so I was impressed!

Again we all heard footsteps in the tunnel, but this time, spirit did the amount of footsteps we asked for. During this time we had the Ovilus 3 on in the back ground. It said 6, followed immediately by 6 footsteps. Almost as if spirit was now telling us what he was going to do! Throughout the session, there were large temperature fluctuations, and whistles repeated when asked for. All in all, a very interesting hour!

Pluckley Woods ghost hunt – 7-4-2013

Pluckley Screaming Woods 7th April 2013
Pluckley, Kent

Pluckley is a great place to go ghost hunting, but you need quiet and because of the popularity of Pluckley amongst local teenagers it is hard to find times when it will be quiet, fortunately for us this was one of those days.

Our first stop was a usual place for me and spirit energies often pass along this path. As I was explaining how to use the various different items of our ghost hunting kit high levels were seen on our KII meters although one of the communication devices wasn’t working how it was supposed to, whether this was the device itself or spirit interfering with it, we’ll never know.

A female energy approached the group cautiously although when she did come close enough she was happy to communicate via the electronic equipment, but not keen to divulge information about herself.

After a while I held a séance as there was a male spirit energy present. Although he wouldn’t tell me his name, he was in his late 50s, quite stocky build and had large sideburns and smartly dressed. This energy was able to move the arms of some of the guests and push and pull one of two of the guests. During the séance some odd noises were heard by the guests and me. These noises were not animal sounds, but more like the sort of noise a person would make walking through the undergrowth as the footfalls were sometimes quite loud.

The second location I was using my spirit box (a device that plays snippets of radio stations, running at 100ms and scanning the FM radio bands in reverse) We all heard “Hi”, “Hello” and “Me” but none of the questions asked got a definite response.

Whist we were listening to the spirit box several guests saw some red lights in the trees not on the path, which is a fairly common sight. As a guest and I were turning around to look back at the spirit box, we both saw strange white lights further along the path, these lights were much bigger than torch light and at the time it looked like car lights, which would be impossible because of where we were in the woods. However we all walked in the direction of the lights to investigate.

When we got to the end of the path, where it turned left and right and we didn’t see anything that could cause the strange white lights I decided to turn on the laser grid as this has proved to be successful in past ghost hunts. There were two spirit energies that approached us, a brother and sister, wearing no shoes and dressed in what some would describe as being “peasant clothing” and although they didn’t show up in the laser grid I approached them with a guest and asked that the spirit energies touch the guest. The guest felt tingling sensations in their hands and as their hand was held out they could feel the spirit energies touch their hands. Several other guests also came over to join us to feel the same sensations.

From here we moved back into the woods and into a much more dense part of the woodland. We were joined by Simon, a male spirit energy who was about 5’7” in height, with blonde hair and fair skin. He was quite muscular and 24 years old. He was from the 1950s.

We were all standing in a circle and I asked him to touch some of the guests, one guest in particular felt a tingling sensation around her face, neck and head as Simon said he would touch this guest. Many of the female guests stated that they had sore backs and all said that it felt much more comfortable when slightly bent over. This sensation has been reported in this particular part of the woods before on past ghost hunts, but it only seems to affect female guests.

Once again a productive ghost hunt with all of the guests feeling some form of physical spiritual and paranormal activity.

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt – 1-2-2013

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 1st February 2013
Toys Hill, Kent

This location often surprises us as the best activity has been seen/felt by small groups of people however sometimes (it has happened before) many people in the group have had a paranormal experience, this was one of those times.

We started on the site of the old manor house, this has in the past been very active and on this night it was one of the more active times that I can remember.

After handing out some KII metres and our electronic communication devices things started to happen. Spirit energies were detectable on the KII and various spirits started communicating. I had the feeling that we were joined by a Maid and a Groundsman of the former house.

Many guests saw lights in the nearby woodland very low to the ground and some saw shadows which seem to move as people walked towards the woodlands to take a closer look.

As a group of us were just talking about previous guests’ experiences I noticed a male energy who looked to be a head butler or someone of importance approach us. He was about 55 years old, quite tall at about 5’9” and very well dressed in a three piece suit. He also had a full well trimmed beard and gave me the date at 1914. This particular spirit who wanted to remain nameless provided the guests with lots of answers to their questions and when asked to touch or move people some guests reported feeling a light brushing sensation, as if someone had just walked passed them. Some guests also felt a warming sensation behind their knees. One guest was sure that she felt a physical touch on her back. Other guests reported the feeling of a dog had just brushed past them.

From here we moved into the woodland as there is a particular area which seems to be more active than the rest of the woods. After walking through an extremely muddy section I stopped by a familiar tree and told the guests that this is the area where we would very shortly be holding a séance. After explained what is likely to happen during the séance an older male spirit approximately 70 years old wandered near to us, he seemed grumpy and called me “a daft old bugger”. Just as I was telling this spirit where to go I noticed another much younger male spirit energy approach, this spirit I have seen here before.

His name was Edward and he is in his mid-20s and every time I seem him he is wearing a grey pinned stripped suit with a bowler hat. He seems to have something to do with finance or accountancy, although he never really answers that question.

Asking Edward to move the guests’ arms, he did so very willingly and soon the majority of people had their arms moved. I also asked Edward if he were able to push or sway people and within a matter of minutes many guests were being pushed or pulled backwards much to their surprise.

Once again some people felt a warming sensation on the back of their legs, especially around their knees, whether this coincided with me asking for Edward to push people I don’t know. At one point when asking for Edward to do the same thing to everyone, my side of the circle (about two people either side of me) were all pushed at the same time towards the centre of the circle and then rapidly pulled backwards. This was a very strange sensation. After this Edward decided that some people should be pushed more forcefully or pushed to the ground, however it was a bit muddy and none of us really wanted to touch the ground, it took all our strength to resist.

After this rather physical séance I decided to conclude this session, but asked all the guests to think of a question to ask Edward, the questions and his answers were recorded and out of the nine people present there were seven responses, however only five could be easily understood.

You can hear these at:-

During the séance many guests including me heard the sound of cough, like someone clearly their throat to get attention, although I didn’t see anyone nor heard any footfalls that could explain this sound, it remains anomalous.

As we were leaving the woodland there continued lots of KII EMF activity and lots of communication via electronic equipment.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and one that many guests enjoyed especially because of the physical nature of the séance and the excellent EVPs that were recorded.

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor – 3-11-2012

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 3rd November 2012

Toys Hill, Kent

We often find that this time of year is a better outdoor ghost hunt as there isn’t much noise outside, obviously being the weekend before Guy Fawkes we were treated to some interesting firework displays!

Our first session was under the trees where the manor house would have stood, this in the past has been the scene of quite a lot of activity and as usual there were high levels of EMF energy shown on our KII meters as well as some good communication via our other electronic equipment.

Some of the guests saw lights in the trees as well as shadows, these were not fireworks or car lights as they were too low to the ground. The shadows were unexplained although I have seen similar when holding previous ghost hunts at this location.

A couple of guests who had stayed with me under the trees (the rest had wandered off) felt a brush on their legs, they said that it had felt like a dog had brushed past them. This has also been reported here and one previous ghost hunt, we all heard the sound of a dog approaching.

After wandering deeper into the woods I stopped at a familiar area, as this has been the scene of so much activity on previous ghost hunts and held a séance here.

A male spirit energy called Daniel joined us, he gave his age as early 20s and the year as 1911. Daniel was easily able to move many of the guests arms, push them and generally sway them on the spot. Several guests also reported the feeling of people pulled downwards, and some were physically pulled downwards by their arms.

Dave (guest) was firstly pushed backwards, although I had noticed that he stood in front of a tree when we started and I am fairly sure he thought the same tree was behind him, but due to all the movement felt by the other guests, the tree was no longer directly behind Dave. So when he was pushed backwards he didn’t resist as he thought the tree would stop him from falling over, but he just missed the tree and fell over!

When Dave finally stood back up Daniel continued to push Dave until he fell face first into the mud which gave us all a good laugh! Whilst all this was going on some of the guests on the other side of the séance circle could hear footfalls and shadows behind them and asked that Carl (GHE Team member) go to investigate. As Carl was now opposite me and I could clearly see him, on my side of the circle we too heard the sound of footfalls behind us and the sound of twigs snapping, like someone had walked over the sticks. We also heard some heavy sounds, like something dropping from the trees or something heavy being dropped, but considering it wasn’t windy the source of this noise remains a mystery.

After we finished the Séance I turned on my Spirit Box (a device that scans the FM radio frequencies in reverse at 100ms) and then asking for spirit to say our names. Several times we heard the name “Carl” and “Tom” (Tom was one of the guests) and “Hartnoll” (Tom’s surname) plus “Tommy” and “Donna” (another guest). During this time there was high levels of EMF energy which could be seen by the guests on our KII meters.

After leaving this area of the woods and heading back to the site of the old Manor I held an EVP (Electronic voice phenomena) experiment to record ghost voices. There were many unexplained noises in the recording and several possible EVPs but only one which could easily be understood. You can hear that one at

Once again a very good ghost hunt and one in which many of the guests felt spirit energy in the form of a physical sensation, plus the added bonus of hearing their names called out on the Spirit Box.

Toys Hill & Weardale Manor – 17-8-2012

Toys Hill & Weardale Manor ghost hunt – 17th August 2012

We haven’t had a lot of luck with the weather at this venue in 2012. First time it was -10 degrees Celsius back in February, then in April it was just before a thunderstorm, June it was a thunderstorm so fourth time lucky and this was well worth waiting for.

We started in the remains of the manor, gave the guests lots of our kit to investigate with and let them roam around. Many guests reported seeing shadows and lights within the near distance trees. I generally stayed put and various groups of people reported different activity in all directions, but the one thing they all commented on was the fact that all felt watched.

A male energy by the name of Philip approached, he was a gardener when there was a house at this place, he tipped his hat to me and some of the guests felt his presence.

Steve (guest) felt a light touch on his back and the sound of a dog, panting during the phase when the spirit Philip was around.

Many guests also reported hearing voices, whispering and whistles in one particular place. Four guests (Andy, Wendy, Marie & Shelley) all heard these sounds as well as the sound of a children’s music box. I then went over to the part to have a look and was met by a Frenchman spirit called Alain. He was about 55 years old and dressed in a smart black suit which had a silver pocket watch attached. He gave me the impression he was from 1900s.

The guests that had some of our equipment all had high levels of activity displayed on the various meters.

From here we decided to move into the woods to hold a séance, as the last time this proved very successful but due to the heavy rain it was not as enjoyable as it could have been.

Once again after finding a suitable spot there were high levels of activity shown on our KII meters and on our ghost communicators.

Within a few minutes of us starting a séance a male energy aged in his early 30s approached us, his name was Roger and he was wearing a white shirt and grey trousers and it was impossible to associate him with a period of time, although he wasn’t wearing a tie or hat.

Roger was very capable of moving people in various ways and generally pushed and pulled most of the group, starting gently and then as his confidence grew the level of movement increased and some people, especially Phil and Lisa, were manoeuvred into some rather uncomfortable positions.

Cold spots were also reported by the guests, mainly behind me as the temperature was a steady 20 degrees Celsius most of the night, these cold spots were felt behind four or five people and it felt like stepping into a freezer.

During the séance Andy felt a stick hit his legs and since Carl (GHE Team member) was outside the circle and at the time on the opposite side of Andy went to investigate although Carl could not see a stick anywhere near Andy. After the séance finished Andy found the stick about 14 inches in front of him.

After the séance finished, which I concluded after most people apart from two had either felt arm movement or had been pushed by Roger, some of the guests wandered deeper into the woods as they thought they heard voices and noises whilst the séance was taking place. The rest of the guests made their way out of the woods.

However those that stayed listening in the woods were soon returning because they heard footfalls in the woods and since no torch light was seen, this scared them.

We made our way back to the site of the manor house and conducted an EVP, although when we played the recording back very few anomalies were heard, however once we analysed them we discovered there were quite a few responses, although not all could be interpreted.

The best ones can be heard at:-

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and a very productive one with many paranormal occurrences taking place.

After we had enjoyed a cup of coffee back at the car park and just before we were about to leave, Carl (team member) saw a “shadow” behind me and exclaimed that it looked too real to be a spirit and so the four of us who were there turned on all our torches to try to see what this was. To our amazement there was a young male (real person, wearing a blue shirt, black top and trousers and had glasses with curly black hair) standing very close to the hedge on the way out of the car park and even when I blinded this person with my torch he failed to move, but just looked down to the ground. All of us decided that this was a very good time to leave as he was probably drunk. As we were driving out of the car park we noticed this same person lying down on the grass beside the road which was really strange.
