Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 30/7/2011

Monday, August 1st, 2011

After leaving the car park we walked deep into the woods and began a séance on a familiar path (to me). My K2 EMF (Electromagnetic Force detector) metre was showing everyone that there were energies present so after everyone had finished taking photographs we held the first séance. Within a few minutes a male energy by the name of Timothy stepped forward and began to give the guests physical evidence. Timothy was about 5’9″ and of slim build, with dark short hair.  He seemed to feel at home in the woods. He started by gently swaying Kerry (guest) to my left and moving the arms of Sandra (guest) to my right. Timothy proceeded around the circle but not everyone wanted to experience physical movement, so Timothy came back to Kerry and pushed her some more, much to Kerry’s amusement. During this session there were many noises of rustling and other normal woodland animals, but every time many of the guests were rattled by these noises.
After the séance had finished I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) experiment to try to capture timothy’s voice. Unfortunately the results of this EVP experiment are inconclusive, there were some noises and possible voices but they are too quiet to analyse further.
The guests at this stage took many photographs, several of them captured bright spirit orbs.
From here we walked a little further into the woods, once again a familiar place to me. After taking several photos we formed another séance circle. Almost Immediately Timothy had followed us down the path and was starting to sway the people he swayed before. Although there was another male energy who slowly came forward, his name was Drake (which I assumed was his Surname) he was approximately 62 years old, about 5’7″ he had a very haggard looking face and was mostly bald, but had a little grey hair at the back. He seemed to be a fist fighter or prize fighter. Drake was a very strong male energy and he quickly started making people sway and rock, which was very similar to The Weebles (a TV show from the 1980s, the tag line of “Weebles Wobble but they don’t fall down!”) as I commented on this at the time. Even one of the guests who initially didn’t want to be moved or pushed ended up standing beside me and because I knew she would not be frightened if she was moved, spirit obliged and moved her arm gently and held it in a position that would have hurt if we tried to do this of our own accord.
From the next EVP experiment that I conducted there were several noises which when they are fully investigated may prove to be spirit voices, however one example was very clear in the initial response, the spirit in question did say something after answering the guest question but as yet we cannot work out exactly what is said. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_baAVqDzhdc

From here we walked a little further down the path (I have never walked this far) the K2 metre was lit up like a Christmas tree and I immediately asked that the spirit(s) in question make a whistling noise, almost immediately we all heard two definite whistles, this did not sound like any animal I’ve ever heard so I asked again. This time the guests heard the whistle but I didn’t. I noticed that every time I asked the lights on the K2 metre went to the lowest light and when I asked my question, almost immediately the lights were pulsating, as if the spirit were letting us know that they had completed their quest. On the third attempt I also recorded this with my digital voice recorder and although we didn’t hear anything at the time, the lights on the K2 flashed away. Upon inspection of the recording you can clearly hear three definite whistles. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C3moM54VpFs

I also asked the spirit in question to make other noises and we all heard various noises, mostly what sounded like someone walking through the woods, although when a torch was shone in those directions nothing was seen and no animal ran away or made any noise. But because we were in a wood those noises could not confirm spiritual activity.
After the display on the EMF subsided I decided it was time to make our way back to the cars, however as we were approaching the main path I decided to step into a small part of the woodland which on previous occasions has made the guests feel strange and one in which they have seen shadows and movement. Within a matter of minutes everyone was not feeling too great, they all said that whilst they could see something they couldn’t be sure it wasn’t their eyes playing tricks, but they all felt the same; vulnerable and slightly on edge, as if they were expecting something but they didn’t know what.

All in all a very enjoyable ghost hunt in Pluckley Screaming woods with some excellent physical evidence experienced by the guests and the whistling noises were absolutely brilliant and also a first for me to record the unusual sound of a spirit whistling.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 23-7-2011

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Pluckley Screaming Woods – 23rd July – Private Ghost Hunt

After walking deep into the woods we stopped at a familiar path (to me), one which has surpassed all our expectations on previous visits to Pluckley woods.

Using my EMF (K2) Metre to show the guests that spirit energy was around, I waited until the energies were close to us before starting a séance.

The first séance a female spirit by the name of Natasha (Tash) stepped forward, she was in her late 20s and about 5’5″ in height. She had long ginger hair and fair skin and was wearing a white dress. She gave me the impression that she was from the 1860s and she was a farmer’s daughter. Almost immediately Nicky (guest) was being gently rocked and mine and Tabitha’s (guest) arms were being moved. After several minutes of Nicky being gently pushed the energy moved around the circle and gave Tabitha the same treatment. A male energy made himself known to me, he was called Tom McBride, aged in his 50s and was about 6′ tall. He was Tash’s father and a well-built gentleman with a very square looking face and what I would call salt & pepper hair colour. Between the two energies they began to firmly push or pull various people although both Laura’s (guests) had very little movement at this time.

During this séance various rustling noises were heard and Tabitha kept looking over her shoulder as she thought she could hear some foot falls of people approaching.

At the end of this session I conducted an EVP experiment and then everyone started taking photos, some of these pictures feature in our Ghostly Gallery http://www.ghosthuntevents.co.uk/gallery.asp

After a short break we proceeded to walk deeper into the woods, to another location which has proved to be active on our other Pluckley ghost evenings.
At this location I suggested that we conduct a séance first to build up the energy and then use a Ouija board.

A male spirit who was aged in his late teens eventually stepped forward, he seemed quite shy and had the appearance of someone who lived rough. His name was David and once he gained confidence he was able to quite forcibly move Laura (who was on my left) with ease. He also moved everyone’s arms and at one point when Tabitha was feeling itchy our arms moved to where the itch was, much to the amazement of Tabitha. At this location many noises were heard, one particular noise which was not paranormal in any way was a cub fox or small mammal calling out, it was a very persistent squeak. During the séance however we all heard a growling noise, which is something that I have not experienced in these woods before, this growling was very close to us and mainly scared everyone. When I left the circle to search for the source of the noise it stopped. Also during the séance various cold spots were noted by some people whereas the person standing next to them noticed nothing. After all movements ceased I decided to set up the Ouija board.

Very quickly an energy came forward and started communicating with us, he was very capable in the use of a Ouija board and knew exactly what to do (which is fairly rare). As he was spelling his Christian name, Nicky told everyone that she knew what it was and to her amazement she was correct. His name was Frank Tanner who lived on the Isle of Man, he was 27 years old when he passed in 1960 and he committed suicide by jumping into a path of a train (on the mainland). His suicide was due to money concerns. He was married to Rita and had 4 daughters. During this session we all heard a noise which we had no heard all evening and when asked Frank said it were he who was making the noise. I asked him to make the same noise again and although quite quiet we all heard the noise.

I asked Frank a question that I have been meaning to ask spirit on a Ouija board for some time. The question was ‘What were you doing immediately prior to this?’ His response was sailing and when I asked where, he gave no answer, in fact he basically told us he couldn’t answer and it was a secret, or something that we do not need to know until it is our turn. It was all very interesting.

After we had finished the Ouija board Tabitha said she could hear a faint whistle or flute, most of the other guests also heard this, but I only heard the last incarnation of this sound. Strangely the direction of this sound was the same direction that we heard the female scream from our March (2011) event and we were in more or less the same spot in the woods.

On the way park to the car park I stopped in a different part of the wood, this part seems to watch you and generally people feel very vulnerable here. Quite quickly the EMF Metre showed us that there was indeed spirit energy about and I suggested holding a séance. Since no torch was on it was extremely dark and Laura (to my right) seemed to have longer hair than she actually had, Nicky and Tabitha also commented on this. Nicky also said that I looked much broader in the shoulders and had an ‘Afro’ hairstyle. At one point Laura felt that I was looking into her face and quite close. I hadn’t moved. A male energy was responsible for the rather violent movements felt by Nicky & Tabitha. He seemed an angry man who was intent on causing trouble, he was aged in his late 20s and came across as a mischievous person. During this séance I had become deaf in one ear, which was not nice since everyone else could hear foot falls and rustling, I could hear it but since deaf in one ear could not locate which direction the sound was coming from. After a short while I suggested we end the séance since the energy had generally stopped moving people and not much else was happening.

Another excellent ghost hunt in Pluckley Screaming Woods, which rarely fails to deliver spiritual activity in some form, although I have noticed that smaller groups here generally get much better results.

Bronze Age Barrow ghost hunt – 2-7-2011

Tuesday, July 19th, 2011

Bronze Age Barrow – 2nd July 2011

When I came to this location in the day time to research it and to see if it is a suitable location for a ghost hunt it looked like a peaceful place, one where people would come to think or relax. I also know from experience that although a place may seem to be calm and peaceful during the day, by night quite often the place has a completely different atmosphere. This is exactly what happened here.

When I came in the daytime a spirit energy by the name of Frederick stepped forward, the odd thing about him was that he was holding an Orange although he was dressed in clothing from about 1200-1300s. I asked him why and he said “I like oranges”. I asked him where he got the orange, since in those days it was an exotic fruit, he told me that he was a Medway trader and had brought the fruit in via a ship. He also explained that many people lived in settlements near to this funerary monument.

On the night of the ghost hunt and after making our way along the footpath to the woods, (which was a very long path) we arrived at the woodland site. The Bronze Age Barrow is situated in a clearing, but it is surprising in the dark that the clearing was quite hard to find.

After the usual photo taking exercise and EVP recording taken by more than one person we held a séance on the North side of the burial site. Within a few minutes a female energy by the name of Bethany had joined us, she was aged about 22 and had light coloured hair (possibly blonde). Bethany began to make various people unsteady on their feet, including me. Then she proceeded to move the arms of some of the guests and then pushing the people themselves, mainly Laura (guest) and Debbie (guest). During this séance Marc (guest) , Steve (guest), Scott (guest) and I all heard foot falls or footsteps in the woods immediately behind me. Although we couldn’t see anything because it was dark. However Nat (guest), Kym (guest) and Scott all said that they could see shadows moving in the woods behind me because they were facing that direction and their eyes had adjusted to the light levels.

We all heard various noises that we not common to these woods as we had spent 15-20mins at the start of the evening listening and making notes of the noises which the wind made in the trees. The noises we heard sounded more like people shuffling in the undergrowth or whispering and mumbling.

Steve (guest) felt that there was a male energy in the woods behind him, he thought that this energy was Danish or Scandinavian and that he was a trader. Steve also thought that this energy was responsible for the noises heard in that part of the woods and the shadows seen by the other guests. When I decided to break the séance, both Marc and Steve headed for that part of the woods and although the rest could make out their outlines we could not see them. Marc at one point asked what Steve had said to him, but Steve was closer to us than Marc and there is no way Marc could have known that. But Marc received a reply from whoever the spirit was standing beside him!

Various Orb photos were captured by guests as well as me. These can be seen in our Ghostly Gallery http://www.ghosthuntevents.co.uk/ghost_gallery.asp

No audible EVPs were captured. We did capture some EVPs but we cannot clean them up enough to determine what is being said.

As we were leaving the woods, both Marc & Steve were leading the group and had EVP and EMF metres. Bethany had joined them as they were leaving and they were recording her responses. I was at the back of the group taking photos and also doing my own EVP recordings. As it is not uncommon that when leaving an area Spirit follow us out, either to say goodbye or good riddance!

We stopped in the picnic area which was approximately half way to the car park and proceeded to use a Ouija board and conduct another EVP experiment. The spirit that communicated on the Ouija board gave much information although I have not been able to verify any of it.

All in all another successful ghost hunt with the guests experiencing many forms of spirit communications and seeing various unexplainable lights and shadows plus the physical evidence.

Perry Wood ghost hunt 16-7-2011

Perry Wood ghost hunt – 16th July 2011

I was very hopeful for Perry Wood ghost hunt, because it would be the third time I have investigated there and the last time was brilliant. However not all ghost hunts can be guaranteed to be brilliant, and this was one such occasion. It didn’t help that it was a clear sky and the full moon shone very brightly through the trees, this made it very light and most of the paths were lit up that we didn’t need torches. It is never scary when it is light!

Nevertheless spirit did join us at the top of the first hill it was a male energy called Billy and he passed over in 1960s. He was a chubby man (a lorry or coach driver) and suffered a heart attack. Billy proceeded to move the hands of some of the guests and make his presence known to the others by making it very cold beside them. Whilst we were holding the séance a loud crack was heard behind the group, but as it was so light we could see that there was nothing there. Whether this was spirit or not remains a mystery although we heard no more noises throughout the evening.

After much photo taking and some small amount of activity on the EMF Metres we proceeded to walk to the lookout point. It was a very eerie walk not because it was scary but because it was the complete opposite, it was so light, but so quiet and still. That is unusual because the previous occasions I can remember hearing animals and distant traffic.

Spirit energy here was quite impressive and orbs were captured in many photos along with strange mists. At one point Graham who had taken several orb photos reported that his camera was now not working, the camera card just stopped working (even two days after the card does not work, which is a mystery because camera cards are supposed to last a lifetime. A new card in the camera works fine).

On the walk back to the car park I stopped just as we were about to descend the steep hill as I had just seen a flash of light (white) in the trees to my right. Instinctively I took some photos and the photo that I took looks like cigarette smoke in it, but no one was smoking and one of the guests commented that they could smell cigarette smoke. The second photo is full of a mist formation that is so dense I have no idea what it is. Some of the guests suggested that it could be breath (as it was quite cold) so we tried to re-create that effect but to no avail. Whether this was active spirit or not I don’t know, as I did not sense any spirit at this point in the woods.

On balance this ghost hunt wasn’t as good as some of the recent ghost hunts, but equally they can’t all be brilliant, as we would not be able to distinguish a brilliant one from a mediocre one.

Wychling Church & Woods ghost hunt

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Wychling woods – 15th July 2011 – Private Ghost Hunt

After spending an entire afternoon trying to find the church in Wychling, I thought this would be a great venue to investigate with a small group and because of the Kent show that was taking place at Detling, this venue would be a good replacement.

We did not need to create a séance circle as the level of energy was extremely high and within a matter of minutes our K2 metres were showing that energies we all around. We took many photographs, some had orbs in them whilst others had strange mists, which cannot be explained, as although it wasn’t a calm night the wind was not too bad, but certainly it was not still enough for mists to form. At one point we heard some foot falls which could have been the local wildlife, however I would have expected to see large animals but the woods are too dense for a large animal to navigate those woods. Both guests saw some green lights, which could not have been car lights or local farms; however we didn’t establish what they could have been. During a session when I was using my sound amplifier I could distinctly hear a music box, (like a jewellery music box) albeit quite faintly, but the volume did not increase or decrease with the wind (this I would have thought would happen if the sound was carried on the wind). The source of this is unknown as it stopped as abruptly as it started. Both guests also noted that when someone took a photo and an orb was captured that there seemed to be a cold spot nearby.

We found a clearing and I asked spirit to come and join us, both of our K2 Metres jumped to life and were flashing in unison with a lot of vigour. I sensed that we were joined by a male energy by the name of Mark and he was about 22 years old and broadly built. He was carrying a satchel with him that contained rabbits. I did not establish whether he was a game keeper or a poacher. Our respective EMF Metres were still flashing in unison and during this period I carried out EVP experiments. Then I noticed that another male energy had joined us, this turned out to be Mark’s brother Brendon who was aged about 18. Both these energies were giving all guests some slight movement, but the majority of their energy was expelled making our EMF Metres lights flash. When I looked up from the ground I saw another physical face in our little circle and this made me jump and swear, as I wasn’t expecting to see a physical face looking back at me, as I took a step back to recompose myself the two male energies backed off. I wonder whether I had scared them?!

After a short while I became aware that a female energy had joined us, she was wearing horse riding gear and although this is timeless I had the impression that she was from the 1950s. Once again our EMF Metres jumped back into life and this female energy told me her name was Anne-Marie. Lots of questions were asked as we conducted EVP experiments. At one point I held out my right hand with the EMF Metre and my arm was pushed backwards with such force it was if it were attracted by a spiritual magnet. All the while the lights on my EMF were flashing in unison with the EMF Metre of my guests.

When Anne-Marie left us the atmosphere changed and we all started to hear strange noises in the woods, these were either coming from right in front of us, or directly behind us. These woods were not the sort of woods that a person could easily navigate, you would need a good torch to see and because of the undergrowth anyone approaching would make a lot of noise. But the noises we heard didn’t sound like a person moving in the woods, they were just random cracks and groans.

At one point one of the guests said that they were feeling strange, as if a cold energy was behind them, as they had felt a cold sensation on their back. I at this point did not sense anything behind the person although I knew it didn’t feel right, so I asked my guide to step forward and instantly I could see the spirit responsible. It was a male spirit by the name of Frank and he was wearing a dog collar and was either a reverend or bishop and he was putting all his weight down the shoulders of the guest, so much so that his legs began to buckle under the strain. My guide immediately stood in between the spirit and the guest and once the guest was feeling normal, my guide escorted Frank elsewhere.

As we were deciding whether to move or not we all saw various coloured lights in the trees, blue, orange, red and white. One of the guests thought they had seen two red eyes, but when our torches were on none of these lights could have come from anything in front of us as the wood was so thick and dense. We then made our way back to the car as it had been a great investigation site and one that deserves further investigation when there is less undergrowth to wade through.

Guildhall and Court Room (Sandwich) – 9/7/2011

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Sandwich Guildhall and Court Room

This was one event which I had been anticipating for months, as I was hoping to try a little table rapping in the Court room, as undoubtedly there must have been quite a lot of gavel banging when the court was in session. It had been used as a court for 400 years so there should have been quite a few sentences.
My group were not disappointed with the amount of noises encountered, although I had not intended to split the group, but because Sandwich is rather a noisy place at night with the pubs opposite The Guildhall having Karaoke competitions. I had to at least try to limit the amount of noise from within the building.
We all started with a Séance in the council chamber room, the energies in here were quite subdued but the people who were facing the door, could see some unusual lights and shadows from that direction. That was the oldest part of the building. Spirit had stepped forward and began to make many people, mostly the men feel very uneasy on their feet. I just had no ability to stand still, neither did the person on my left (he wants to remain anonymous and not have his name mentioned in the report, therefore we’ll call him Bob). The male energy who stepped forward kept showing me his watch, the importance of this took several hours to work out. This male energy was approximately 5’8″ in height and wore a very smart black & white suit, although he was wearing knee breeches and a highly polished buckle shoes. He also showed me that he carried a silver pocket watch, this was attached to his waistcoat via a chain. He gave me the impression that he was of some importance although not a mayor. He gave his name as Thomas and the year of 1880. There was also a shy female energy present who just looked in on us from time to time, I did not get a name for her. However two of the guests did, Bob had Poppy in his head and Kym had Polly in hers.
It was at this juncture that I decided to split the group into two smaller groups, as the Guildhall is a big enough place for groups to work without interfering with each other.
My group headed into the Mayor’s Parlour room. I asked that any spirit present could make a noise in the room, within a matter of seconds noises started in the corner of the room behind me. I asked that the spirit identify themselves and it was Thomas who stepped forward. When the town clock struck the hour, the clock in the room was approximately 3 minutes slower. I had informed the group that I thought it was Thomas who went around the building setting the clocks by his pocket watch, which he was very proud of. Bob at this point made a joke that if it was Thomas, he was 3 minutes out. This angered Thomas and the noises that were then heard by everyone increased, not only in frequency but also in volume. At one point I thought the other group was walking past the door to our room. I was about to ask them to be quiet as it seemed a lot of noise for 5 people. However when I opened the door, all the noise ceased and to top it off there wasn’t anyone near the door or in fact anywhere in the corridor. I couldn’t even hear the other group from just outside the door to the room we were in.
After a break we all headed into the Court room, as the room was big enough and if there were any spirit taps then I wanted everyone to hear it & I could rule out any noise heard within the building, as we were all in one place. It took a while but a male energy made himself known to me, he was standing in the dock, beside Bob. I asked that this energy make some noise to prove that he was present, I tapped three times on the table in front of me and we all heard three distinctive taps next to Bob. Although Bob could not work out where exactly the taps were coming from. This energy gave his name as Jerome and that he was wrongly accused of sheep rustling, his fate and punishment was not given to me. But he was very happy to make some noises for us more or less on command.
The next session I decided that I would like to go back into the Mayor’s Parlour because the pubs had now quietened down and we may get more audible sounds. We did get some more taps & raps, but they were not as good as this first time. The other group had decided to move out of the room next door to ours (The Coroner’s Court), so we moved into there. A boy aged 8-9 stepped forward and gave his name as Samuel, I asked why he was here on his own. He informed me that his father worked in the building and his was here with him. Samuel was wearing his school uniform, grey shirt, blue jacket, blue cap, shorts and he was wearing brown shoes. He informed that these were indoor shoes (I can relate to that because I too attended a school where we had brown shoes for indoors, black shoes for outdoors).
Once again the clock in this room also chimed three minutes after the town clock. Bob once again commented that all the clocks were wrong. Thomas then explained to me that they were right and that the clocks in The Guildhall were right because they weren’t supposed to be the same as those outside The Guildhall. Whether this is true or not I have no idea.
On asking the spirit energies to make a noise they promptly made a loud tap between Bob and I, it was very good as the sound came from inside the table. [This is something that I am interested in and would like to conduct more research on, as table rapping is a very rare phenomena]

There was an empty seat between Kym and Bob and at one point it sounded like someone had sat down on the seat between these two people. I became aware of another male energy called Philip Gedridge who had been strangled. Aged 37 who was dressed in a jean shirt and jean trousers. Just as the outside clock was chiming again we all heard a shuffle of people, but during the shuffle both Bob & I heard a male growl, but before we could ask for spirit to do this again the other group came into this room. Whether the noise was caused by Spirit or whether it is a floorboard we do not know.
Although this wasn’t the kind of ghost hunt that offered physical evidence for the guests it was certainly the place where auditory noises were heard. I would certainly like to go back in the winter months when the noise from the town is likely to be minimal.
Although we tried lots of audio recordings, so far nothing exceptional has been recorded.

Hucking Estate (private ghost hunt) 8-7-2011

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Hucking Estate – 8th July 2011
It has been several months since I walked around Hucking Estate in the daytime, however with a lot of these places it all looks rather different in the dark. The irony is that I had not planned on going to this venue, we had planned on Thurnham Castle but with the possibility of rain I decided it would be better coming to Hucking Estate because there would be some shelter from the rain. That proved to be a very wise decision as it rained almost all night, however this did not detract from what was an amazing ghost hunt.
Whilst holding a séance in one of the wooded areas a male energy by the name of Matias stepped forward. Aged in his early 20s approximately 5’10” in height with the starting of a beard and moustache and wearing a white granddad shirt and brown trousers. This energy looked to be a farmhand from 1870s – 1880s. Both Graham’s and my EMF were going absolutely nuts as if spirit were rushing to see what we were doing and then backing off. During the séance we all heard some random noises, at one time it sounded like footfalls or horses. (There were no large animals in this wood, nor in the adjacent fields). Various lights were also seen in the trees, usually behind me and at one stage everyone saw human shaped shadows in the immediate vicinity. Bearing in mind it was raining quite heavily, the likelihood was rather slim (as you could not walk through these woods without a torch or without making a lot of noise). At one point Debbie & Scott were extremely scared so much so the little séance circle now resembled a group of penguins (all huddled together).
I decided that after a short amount of time that we could drop hands, as it became apparent that the energy wasn’t going to give people any physical evidence and that everyone was rather anxious of the shadows and noises being seen & heard. It seemed the sensible option.
Scott placed a one pence piece and two, two pence pieces on a broken branch, as I called out to spirit to either remove them or replace them with different coins. I also picked up a large stick & threw it into the woods in the hope that spirit would throw it back. Whilst I was doing this Scott & Debbie were watching the coins. I had somehow managed to miss all the trees and could not quite believe this and was searching for my torch, Scott and Debbie both had just looked up (from the coins) for a moment and when they returned to look at the branch all the coins had gone, much to their amazement. However Scott & Laura found two of the coins, both were covered by the leaves on the ground, not really what you would expect if they had just fallen off. One of the two pence pieces could not be found at all.
It was still raining heavily and I wanted to get to a particular part of the wood which felt spooky when I first recced the area, however everyone in the group including me now had no idea which way we came unto the wood nor which way was the right direction, so I headed for what I thought was the right direction, which turned out to be the wrong one and although this wooded area is quite small compared to the whole Estate I was disorientated and lost. Needless to say we made our way around the woods until I came across a path I recognised by which time we were all somewhat soaked.
After walking around for about an hour Scott said he would like to go back to where he had left the coins, so I headed in that direction and this time the same area had a different feel to it. It was still raining but the atmosphere was not as scary as the first time and a male energy in his early 50s came to join us. He gave me the impression that he had passed over in the 1940s or 1950s and that he was a land owner. Since everyone wanted to use the dowsing rods and pendulums I began showing how to use them when I noticed this energy was near us. Graham twice thought he saw this energy whilst he was taking photos.
This energy came and stood right in front of Graham who was holding his K2 (EMF) metre and I asked the spirit to make the lights dance. Which he did with some amazing results. K2 metres have 5 lights (green, light green, yellow, orange & red). The red light is not supposed to come on before the orange for instance, they are supposed to come on in order, but this energy was able to make the green and yellow lights come on more or less randomly.
During this time I was aware that there seem to be mumbling in the woods, as if I was hearing part of a conversation, Debbie & Scott too heard this, which unnerved them.
Since everyone was now a little jumpy and after some frantic photo taking, I decided to conduct an EVP experiment, when this was played back at the time, we all thought we could hear a response after Debbie’s question, but after I have spent time trying to hear what it could be I am no further to understanding what the spirit response is. However there was a clear response by spirit after Scott’s question although it doesn’t explain what happened to the coins. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ec2S_wG2bGg

Everyone was now ready for a nice warm cup of coffee, so we decided to make our way out of the woods for the second time, but this too proved just as hard the second time around as I was once again disorientated and had no idea which way was the right way, basically everyone walked in different directions until the pathway was found. Whilst walking back across the open fields to the car park, both Debbie & Graham were feeling very anxious and had the feeling that they were being watched. This feeling only subsided when we were about 50 yards away from the cars.
Hucking Estate woods is a very strange place, one of the scariest locations in Kent, definitely more scary than Pluckley with a higher level of spirit energy. I cannot wait to return to this location when it isn’t raining.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 25/6/2011

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt

After the long walk into the main part of the woods, we decided to split the group up, with 7 people in each group.

My group staying on one of the scariest and active paths, where after explaining what was going to happen we held a séance.
The energy that stepped forward was called Desmond, he was in his early 20s, about 22 years old and he stood about 6′ tall. He looked like a farm hand or a farmer. He wasn’t very communicative although had the impression that he had passed over relatively recently.
I asked the energy to step forward and give all the guests some personal evidence. This started with me and then Julie to my left, she was being pushed and pulled like a puppet, as she had no control over which direction she would be moved next I then asked Julie to ask in her head which direction she would like to be pushed. Desmond then proceeded to move her. After a 5 or 10 minutes I asked Desmond to move onto the next person, who was Carole and he pushed her forward, I said the same thing to Carole, to ask in her head, then Sean, Kym and Ellen and finally Debra. Everyone hold some gentle pushing and pulling. There were also some gentle arm movements, but these were very few and far between.
During this period we all heard some woodland sounds, but what I cannot be sure of were the lights that we saw, as the other group were much further away and out of sight, yet throughout our séance we could all see some lights like torches. The other group confirmed that they did not leave their torches on all the time.
After the séance I conducted an EVP experiment, there were several EVPs that were captured, however the best one is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=An4-_xq0sYc

Before moving off everyone took some photos and a number of Orbs were captured, some of these photos can be seen in our ghostly gallery www.ghosthuntevents.co.uk/ghost_gallery.asp
We then made our way down the path to join the others, after exchanging notes the other group once again went further down the path, we stayed where they had been. After a while another male energy joined us, he was a big man, about 5’7″ in height and weighing about 20 stone, to me he looked very similar to the character Ted Bovis from Hi-De-Hi. This energy did not reveal his name at the time, as he seemed very reluctant to speak to me. A little arm movement occurred, but nothing like the first energy. At around 1.30am we all heard church bells, which was unusual because we have not heard church bells at that hour on previous visits to Pluckley woods and I very much doubt any church bells would be ring at 1.30 in the morning. The other group later confirmed that they had heard the bells at that time, but did not hear them before then. There were also some lights and shadows seen behind me in the woods, this is a very thick part of the woods and it would be impossible for someone to walk in that part without the aid of a torch.
I then conducted another EVP experiment, a few EVPs were captured, once again the best is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1vbnNwUf8A
At this point the other group came back to join us and whilst we were standing around talking another group of people that we had seen approaching joined us. These were casual ghost hunters but what I found strange is that they had no proper torches and seemed mostly scared and they had ventured into the deepest woodland with no idea where they were and more importantly no idea how to get back to the car park.
On our way out of the woods we stopped in a thicker part of the woods, as this area was recommended to us by The Royal Marines 40 Commando that accompanied us back in April as they too heard some weird sounds at this location.
Lynn sensed a female energy was around her part of the circle, however I could not sense this energy and after a while I did sense a male energy who looked scary although I suspect he wasn’t that bad. He was however about 6’5″ and very muscular and he had an evil looking face. During this séance a group of real people wondered by. The female energy that Lynn had sensed seemed scared of the male energy that I sensed. He made his way around the circle but very little movement was apparent.
Once again another excellent evening, where everyone in my group had some physical evidence, photographic evidence captured on their own cameras and some EVPs. What more could you ask for.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 11-6-2011 Lynn

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

I took my group to tunnel 11 (the Cave). We decided to go into one of the side rooms as light was still coming through the main tunnel.
We started with a séance circle, straight away a gentlemen came through who gave me his name Ted, he was about 65-70 years old about 6′ tall, silver/grey hair, he appeared to be very smartly dressed in a brown suit with a hat, he was also carrying a briefcase an old brown leather one. I asked what he was doing here he informed he was to do with the war but not a serviceman, (Anne then informed me he was a civil servant) Ted confirmed this to me. It became very dark in the archway the appeared to be 3 soldiers only one gave his name Jeff. I was asking the guests how they were all feeling and everyone felt uncomfortable as it was so dark I asked if the energies around us could give us some proof they were there. Some of the guest arms started to move upwards, Tess at this stage said she did not want this to happen to her, everyone was pleased when this happened. A female called Evelyn popped in to say hello, everyone was getting some physical proof throughout the séance.

After a short break I conducted an EVP recording and went back into the main tunnel. We decided to leave a torch on as it was too dark. As soon as we went into this tunnel I said to Sean “Hey Stu let’s get started” (I am unsure why I said this as I have known Sean for a number of years), as I looked down the tunnel a young spirit lad came walking up he said he was Stu, I asked spirit to give us some proof they were there and again Anne’s arm went up in the air as well as Lee and mine.
Another male energy came in behind me he told me his name was Terry; he was newly passed over and said he wanted help, I asked my guide to come forward to help take him over. There were some strange noises in this part they sounded like footsteps, everyone heard them but we had no idea where they came from.
After a short break of teas and coffees we were ready to tackle our next area. We were going into where Steve’s group had been, and all felt hyped up.
Straight away we lit a candle so we had some form of light we joined hands and started, Tess became a bit agitated and kept trying to pull away from the circle Sean kept a firm grip on her, both of us saw a male energy in the door where we had come from, again I asked sprit to move someone, Richard and Mark were very quiet. There appeared to be lots of soldiers standing against the wall behind Lee and myself and Richard kept shuffling and standing very straight and putting his feet together Richard said he was unaware that he was doing this, we had lots of arm movements, we asked the soldiers to come forward and talk to us, they were very reluctant to do this, we all heard what sounded like running down the tunnel. Mark started with the standing up tall, and being gently swayed, it was all very strange, after another short break I conducted another EVP experiment, everyone was very pleased to leave this area as we all felt on edge.
Our last port of call was with the rest of the group we split into 2 groups but at each end of the tunnel, I was left with just Lee, Mark, Richard and Sean, I can honestly say we did not stay here long as we all felt very uncomfortable nothing happened but we were pleased to leave.
An excellent investigation and one which I look forward to returning to.

Perry Wood (private group) Ghost Hunt – 24/6/2011

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

Perry Wood – 24th June 2011
After leaving the car park in the rain we made our way up the hill to where I have felt that it was the spookiest.

We started taking photos etc. but although some shots had orbs in them it is perfectly reasonable that some of the orbs captured could be rain droplets, however I categorise them that if an orb looks flat then it is more likely to be rain, pollen or an insect. If however it is 3D or looks more spherical then I believe these orbs to be of a spiritual nature.

Next we held a séance as my K2 metre was showing that there was indeed spiritual activity, I could already sense the energy, but I thought that it would be better to hold a séance so that the energy could make himself known to the group (Graham, Debbie, Laura & Scott). The male energy stood approximately 6’3″ in height, about 47-50 years old had dark brown or black short hair, a neatly trimmed beard and was of slim build by the name of Geoffrey. He wore a smart Green/Olive short sleeved shirt, with a black tie and had the air of authority about him. There was also a female energy present, she was in her early 20s and called Lerren, but she seemed shy and did not want to communicate.

During the séance Geoffrey started to move Laura and my hands very slowly and then twisted them until it hurt. The energy made his way around the circle trying to manipulate each person or to make them feel something. This largely proved unsuccessful, although there were little pushes or movements. Then the energy decided to do something different and make people to feel sick. He started with Laura who suddenly felt ill and nauseous. Laura said she needed to sit down as she thought she was tired, but as soon as she left the circle she felt fine. Within a matter of minutes everyone was feeling that same sickly feeling with the exception of me, but then as if a switch was turned on I too felt a strange sickness. I likened it to having a hangover and that throaty sickly feeling where you know you’ll feel better after being sick. Since this wasn’t a pleasant feeling I told the energy to stop that immediately. However shortly after this lights were seen by everyone quite close to the circle and further afield. Debbie & Scott saw lights on their own hands, Graham saw them in the distance, as did Laura who was sitting down. I didn’t see anything.

Then Graham thought he saw a real person behind Debbie as it looked solid, I decided to break the circle so that we could check and it turned out that it would have been impossible for a person to have been standing where Graham had seen something as the person would have had to have been 15′ tall, as the path slopes downwards. Various lights and humanoid shapes were then seen by Debbie, Scott and I and the whole group became very jumpy. As Scott pointed out some of the lights looked like a laser pointer or a laser target point others looked like a very bright torch. During this time we heard no-one approach or torches and since it was still raining that was unlikely.

Several photos were taken at this time and strange mists were captured, odd coloured orbs and at one point Debbie asked what she thought was Scott a question (it was a tree) but more worryingly she got an answer.

After we had calmed down we walked to the lookout point and although it seemed quite spiritually quiet there seemed to be a female energy that wanted to show her energy. As she stood just to me right I held my hand out and immediately felt her warmth. It seemed as if heat was rising from the ground, but the energy wanted to pull my hand downwards. I asked everyone else to put their hands where mine were and everyone felt the heat and the pressure. Then I asked the energy to do something, but without telling the group what I had asked for. Shortly afterwards Scott started to feel this and it became visibly apparent. Then I told everyone and they all confirmed that they too had felt the same but thought they were doing themselves. I had asked the energy to close their hands to make a fist.

When we were walking back towards the car park Graham commented that as soon as we walked from the relative openness of the lookout & what used to be a mill he felt anxious as we entered the wooded area where all the strangeness happened earlier.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves with the activity that had taken place and everyone had some personal evidence of some kind.
