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.

Kit’s Coty (private ghost hunt) 1-7-2011

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

We walked down the road to the Countless Stones (A.K.A) Little Kit’s Coty, after a lot of photo taking, some with a lot of strangeness captured in them we then proceeded to hold a ghost hunt, we started with a séance and a female energy who was called Maud something, the weird thing is she did confirm her name at the name it was like Derridge, but none of us could remember her name after the séance was over.
She told me that she was 74 years old and married to Henry who was ten years her younger and that she “entertained” gentlemen in a building that was two doors down the road from the Town Hall in Maidstone. She gave the year as 1795 although once again no one can remember what that date was for. She told me at the time, I told the group and then we all forgot the information, very strange.
She proceeded to push Debbie, then Graham and I. Laura & Scott did not feel anything at the time, but Scott’s shoulder became sore and he left the circle. Debbie was pushed very strongly to the point where either Graham & I were going to fall with her or she had to correct her footing. Maud proceeded to push and pull both Graham and Debbie at will. I had the impression that Maud was not her real name, more of a “Stage Name”. She was about 5′ in height and looked younger than her years. Her husband Henry was a man with some authority and he gave me the impression that he wa a school teacher.
After conducting an EVP experiment, we began the long walk up to Kit’s Coty, stopping once or twice on the path, various lights were seen here.
We captured one EVP http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QReP1kGuXkw
Once at Kit’s Coty it felt very calm and spiritually quiet, which is something I have not had before at this location. After taking several pictures we all captured some orbs.
I suggested that we go back on the path and hold a séance as that area seemed more active. Within a matter of minutes a male energy stepped forward and overshadowed me, I know this because whilst he was doing whatever he was trying to do I went completely blind. As if someone had just turned the lights out. I then asked the energy do it to someone else and Graham was shocked at how dark it became. He summed it up as follows; it was if my eyes were like a dimmer switch and someone was slowly turning it down, however when it was dark it then went black, the darkness seemed blacker than black. During this period there were a number of noises that were heard including a male sounding whistle that occurred just behind Scott and some other random noises all were unexplained a they did not sound like animals.
After we finished the Séance we started walking up the path and we all saw a white-ish light ahead of us. I said “Oh that’s a sign” and no-one took any more notice, however we walked for several minutes before I realised it was a lot further than I remembered and Graham asked “Where’s the sign”. There was no sign nor anything that could have reflected light and it could not have been a car because we were 20 feet below the road.
All in all another interesting ghost hunt.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 25/6/2011

Saturday, July 2nd, 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.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 11/6/2011

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

When I walked around Fort Horsted during the initial meeting, I thought that the first event was going to be excellent, however on the night my expectations were surpassed as the ghost hunt wasn’t just great it was exceptional!

We split into two groups and my group headed towards the left hand flank armoury room (not sure what its proper name is) and even though it was still light outside, in this room with the torches off it was as black as it could be, you literally couldn’t see you hand in front of your face, let alone anyone else.

There was a glimmer of light entering the room from the passage way, but this too was fading as the sun set.

We started with a séance and after talking people through the various safety measures, i.e. what I would do if someone was feeling unwell etc. I asked spirit to come and join us. A male energy by the name of Mark stepped forward, he was a scruffy looking person with Black hair and a long beard and he was dressed in hippy fatigues, he gave the year of his passing as 1976 and he was in his early 30s. Mark proceeded to lift the arms of myself, Charlie (guest), Rob (guest) and Laura (guest) at first and then proceeded around the circle giving everyone some form of movement, although Rob and I had probably the most movement. Many of the guest commented that I looked like a giant in the little amount of light that was entering the room, apparently my shadow looked twice as big as me. Rob commented many times that he thought that I was looking at him, when in fact I wasn’t, this was the energy Mark who was between us looking at Rob. During this session we all heard various female voices, as if someone was approaching and the footsteps, but no one ever arrived, the other group were as far away from us as possible and they were in the mirror image room on the other side of the Fort. There was no-one else on site. Yet we also heard mumbling and other random noises which we could not account for.

After the Séance I conducted an EVP experiment, the results of which are too quiet for us to hear, even when amplified I (and the experts) can hear something, but we cannot amplify it enough to decipher what is said. However there is one example which was good enough. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Fx1NW44B4A

After this session we took various photographs down the long corridor and along the corridor and steps that were out of bounds. (The reason why it was out of bounds was because of the war time graffiti that was written in pencil on the walls and if brushed by a coat this graffiti would be lost forever) Many Orbs were captured by just about everyone who took a photo down these corridors (the best examples can be found in our ghostly gallery) We then made our way back in the hope that the food had arrived, which it had.

The second session I decided to go to the area/room in which the other group had just come from (and they went to the area that we had come from). These rooms are identical and mirror images of each other on both sides of the Fort. As we entered the room people were looking for cave spiders and taking photographs etc. and then I suggested we hold a séance, everyone stopped moving, but the strange thing is, we were standing in a mirror image of the order we stood in the last place. That was a little bizarre and no-one could figure out how that happened because we were all wandering about and just stopped in those positions.

Even before I had started a Male energy stepped forward, he seemed to be a very strong energy. He was a well presented British solider, a Captain from the First World War, of slim build, 6′ tall with short cropped black hair with a very neat moustache and when I asked his name, he told me “call me Tarzan”.

Tarzan started pushing and manipulating Charlie, gentle pushes and then as the energy got more confident, stronger movements. At one stage Tarzan pushed Charlie and twisted him so that he was facing Tabitha, which surprised Charlie, as he came on this event as a sceptic. Tarzan then moved on to Tabitha and pushed her with ease much to Tabitha’s amazement. The energy had some trouble moving the next three people (Nicky, Kym & Laura) however they all spoke of feeling dizzy and that their stomachs were turning, as if the spirit were trying to move them from the inside out. However Rob was no trouble to move and at one point I asked Tarzan to either push or pull Rob so that it would be impossible for him to stand up without falling over. Tarzan happily complied and pulled Rob back so much that I and Laura had to hold him up to stop Rob from falling over. Rob was very impressed with this.

During this séance I had noticed another male energy, quite a large man wearing a white T shirt and boiler suit trousers, with a flat cap, roughly aged in his late 50s or early 60s, peering in from the opposite room, however this energy seemed reluctant to step forward or to enter the room that we were in. Although Tabitha commented that she felt that there was someone watching from the other room. Tabitha also commented that she thought my torch (which was left on outside the room) was moving or rocking. I do not know if this was the case because the torch was the only form of light, and it could have been a trick of the eyes. After this séance we made our way along the corridor for people to take photographs, and then made our way back to the hub of the Fort.

The third session, I decided that since the counterscarp galleries was a nasty and steep staircase that everyone would go there in one group. Once there we decided that we would split into our groups and we headed for the right hand side of the galleries. Within a matter of minutes a Second World War male energy made himself known to me, he was average build and about 5’6″ in height and had a very mischievous nature called Gerry. He started moving people’s arms, starting with Tabitha’s and mine and then gradually working his way around the circle. The he called out “Jefferson give me a hand” and another male energy joined us. From this moment, everyone was moved and then without any warning Tabitha started to laugh uncontrollably about absolutely nothing, she had no control over it, much to our amusement. Then Nicky started laughing for no reason, then Laura and finally Kym. The energies tried to make Charlie laugh but all that they achieved was making him smile a lot. At one point I heard one of the energies say “Oh Okey Cokey” and then everyone’s hands were being manipulated, as if we were doing the Okey Cokey. This proved very successful and much to everyone’s amazement and amusement.

Towards the end of this session a couple of people including myself smelt wet hay or straw, similar to a wet horse smell. Considering it wasn’t raining I have no idea what could have caused that smell, especially as it just came from nowhere.

I finished this session with another EVP experiment and the results of this are still being analysed although we have identified four spirit comments. (These will be added to the website when we have cleaned them up enough to hear the proper responses)

This was our first of hopefully many encounters at Fort Horsted and it was thoroughly brilliant, I for one cannot wait to return, as there are so many areas which we did not have time to visit or experience the energies that may have been there. A truly amazing ghost hunt.

Thurnham Castle Ghost Hunt – 4/6/2011

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ghost Voice captured

Kings Wood Ghost Hunt – 21/5/2011

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

We started the evening with a delightful picnic just inside the woods, we couldn’t find the picnic tables, as they are painted black and the trees have grown since I was last here.
After the picnic we started the evening with a Ouija board. A male energy by the name of Peter was communicating with those around the board. He didn’t give much detail about himself as he seemed to be annoyed that were there or he just couldn’t be bothered to answer the questions. He was a tall gentleman, about 5′ 11″ or 6′ in height of slim build, with balding hair aged in his early 60s he also had a much reddened and an angular face.

After this we headed into the woods, at our first location, which was the area used in 1st World War as a launching area for barrage balloons, we came across another male energy by the name of Ezekiel who was Jewish, in his early 20s, about 5’10” in height. He proceeded to give everyone some physical evidence by pushing them. He pushed Mel (guest) until she was bent over. During this time Mel, Debbie (guest) & Lynn all smelt a very sweet perfume smell. Chris (guest) and I didn’t smell anything. At one point an unwelcome energy tried to gain the confidence of Lynn, but fortunately this energy was unsuccessful. I then conducted an EVP experiment, on inspection there were no spirit voices captured.

After this we walked further into the woods, and both Chris and I captured some orb photographs. The best of these have been loaded onto our Ghostly Gallery [http://www.ghosthuntevents.co.uk/ghost_gallery.asp]

We stopped on a particular path, which when Lynn & I came here back in early April during the day we both felt uneasy and Lynn kept looking behind her, even though we both knew that there was no one behind us. The area that we had chosen to stop was the main settlement area when these woods were heavily inhabited.
Firstly a female energy who was a well-covered lady, who was wearing a blue and white striped dress with a white pinny, her hair was dark and tied back into a bun. She was about 5’4″. She seemed to be a farmer’s wife; she gently gave everyone some physical evidence in the form of gentle arm movements and gentle rocking. Then I noticed a male energy had joined us. He was a fairly stocky gentleman, about 5′ 8″ and he was the female energy’s husband. He carried with him a shepherds hook or staff and was wearing light brown or beige shirt, dark brown trousers and what looked like homemade boots. He was a very strong energy and he manipulated everyone in the circle by pushing them backwards, nearly to the point of falling over. Afterwards I conducted another EVP experiment, when I played back the recording at the time we could all hear there was a response after Lynn’s question. The result of that can be heard at [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gUWSz-0gDzY]

During this session we all heard what was definitely an animal sound, but none of us could identify the animal. It sounded like a very loud cricket. As it turned out this is the sound of a Nightjar bird.

After a long walk back to the cars for tea and coffee, everyone was tired from the walking, but had thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
