Newhaven Fort – 18th March 2017 – Steve

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Newhaven Fort ghost hunt 18th March 2017
Newhaven, East Sussex

Newhaven Fort is a new venue for us in 2017, and after a site visit back in January I was really looking forward to the event itself.

I started both my sessions in the Laboratory, in both sessions we were joined by spirit, the strongest spirit was a chap called Stanley, a Second World War soldier aged in his mid-40s who could lift peoples’ hands and arms, push people and pull people backward off their feet.

The second session the spirits were less forthcoming but nevertheless they were still able to move us.
After both sessions, I asked everyone to think of a question to ask spirit and recorded their questions and a gap after each question for spirit to respond in the hope of recording a spirit voice (a.k.a. EVP – Electronic Voice Phenomena). At the time of writing, the audio files are still being analysed.

After the second session, I asked questions via a spirit box in the hope of hearing a spirit voice but unfortunately none were forthcoming.

The East Bastion and Caponier were strange places to be and many guests wandered (quite quickly!) through them, on several occasions footsteps and other noises we heard behind the person exploring and whilst this area is known for ghostly whistles, none were heard.

We are looking forward to our return to this fort in October 2017.

Old Forde House – 11th March 2017 – Steve

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Old Forde House ghost hunt 11th March 2017
Newton Abbot, Devon


When we are walking around the venue deciding on which team member is going to be in which room we all heard noises, voices and footsteps. This made Carol (the night custodian) very nervous, but to us this is reasonably normal and created the right kind of mood for the evening that awaited us.

The room that I chose for my sessions used to be a bedroom (upstairs at the end of the house) and on all three sessions spirit joined us.

The first session was a male spirit called Richard, who was in his early 30s. He was a footman for the house and said that he was here in 1855.
He could lift peoples’ arms and move people in just about any way anyone asked him to do. However most of the movements were pulling people by their arms or pushing them to the floor. This was very amusing for everyone.

The second session there was a female spirit called Miss Bossingham, she was dressed in an Edwardian dress and she carried a parasol. There was also a male spirit called Clive who was a golfer (dressed in golfing attire) from the 1920s and every so often another male spirit who was an Army Officer from the First World War just kept popping in.

With all these spirits there was no noticeable movement, the spirits just wanted to be noticed it seemed.

The third session we were joined by Richard (from the first session) and Miss Bossingham and Clive (from the second session). After a slow start, there was lots of arm movement, touching and pulling people to the floor.

This was a very enjoyable ghost hunt with lots of paranormal activity reported by the guests. We are looking forward to our return visit in September.

Sandford Mill – 25th February 2017 – Kym

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Sandford Mill ghost hunt 25th February 2017
Chelmsford, Essex

Area: Museum/Marconi Buildings
Kit & Human Pendulum

With each group, I explained how to use the equipment ie. Ghost Pro’s, KII’s, Dowsing Rods and Pendulums.  Once understood we all explored the area’s and used our devices to communicate with spirit.  We were also using the Ovilus, Edi, Static Detector and Bear.  In our first group, we had positive interaction with all the equipment, with the temperature increasing when the bear said ” is it getting hot in here”, the lights on the bear going off detecting spirit presence, at the same time the Edi and Static Detector would light up.  Upstairs some guests had stood their big heavy torch on a table, and the torch fell over when no-one was near.  In our last group whilst using the kit we had the spirit of a girl age 6 called Sophie.  She was drawn to the teddy, and many times lit the teddy up, especially when we asked her to step near or touch it.

Whilst doing the human pendulum, in the first group we had the spirit of Michael Andrews with us, age 26 from 1856.  He was murdered, had been pushed in the river by a supposed friend, because of jealousy, and had drowned.  Sarah (guest) whilst in the middle had a bad head pain.  We asked Michael if he had hurt his head, and he said yes.  Michael had worked here in the corn mill.  He was not too tall, shorter than James (guest) and had blond hair.  We were hearing unexplained noises/bangs around us.  And Matt (guest) was feeling coldness around him a few times.

In the second group, we had the spirit of a boy called Thomas aged under 10.  His daddy had worked here in the water mill, and he had come to work with his dad.  When he had grown up he had done a different job, had got married and had children.  He showed himself to us as the age he was when connected to this building.  He was blond with blue eyes.
In the third group Michael returned to explain why his ‘friend’ had pushed him in the river.  Michael had been dating his sister, and his friend had not been happy about it.

A fantastic night with lots of interaction with the spirits, all of us experiencing something, the guests enjoying the connections they had made.  It was great to see the guests being able to pick up on the spirits, their feelings, their names, and how they may have looked.  For me when Thomas came through as a 10-year-old boy, but had not died then, and had grown to be an adult, that was a first for me.  I love being surprised.

Red Lion Hotel – 27th January 2017 – Kym

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 27th January 2017
Colchester, Essex

Area: Tudor Room
Equipment: Dowsing Rods & Pendulums, Glass Work and Human Pendulum
With my first group we started with the rods & pendulums, and all were able to communicate with various male & female spirits.  We then switched to the human pendulum and some of the spirits continued to talk with us, the first being a male who had worked here.  He had died within the last 100 years aged over 70.  He was married with children.  Louise (guest) suddenly had back pain and wanted to go into the circle next to find out why.  The spirit confirmed this was his pain when he passed.  He had fallen and hurt his back and died, it was an accident.  I felt someone touch my back, spirit confirmed that was him.  We asked spirit to tell us his name, and immediately Louise said “John” in a male voice.  When we asked her after, she had no recollection of saying that.  Louise had also seen visions; the spirit had been outside this window on a ladder cleaning when he fell.  We then tried glasswork, initially we had John for a while.  Then we had a spirit that said they knew Caroline (guest).  Asking all the obvious questions drew a blank, then Caroline remembered seeing a solid white shadow earlier in this room.  Spirit confirmed that was them, however did not give us any more information.  Then the glass started moving a lot stronger, and it felt familiar to me – this was “Alice”.  She did not wish to communicate any further, just seem to revel in moving the glass with a lot of energy around the table.  Moving the glass how we asked, and even surprising us by rotating the glass all around the edge of the round table very fast.

With my second group, we again had communication with the spirits by using the rods & pendulums, then the human pendulum.  First, we had the male spirit of Peter who had died of TB.  Then we had the spirit of Philip Robert who was in the military.  He had been very young when he joined the arm and had lied about his age.  He had fought in WW1 at the Somme.  He had returned mentally scarred from war but had recovered.  After the war, he had worked in an office in the South.  He had passed in the (1940s) forties age around 30.  Stuart (guest) suddenly had a pain in his back.  I asked spirit to make that pain stronger which it did.  Then once we had acknowledged it, we asked spirit to take the pain away, and to Stuart’s surprise it immediately went.
Again a fantastic night at the Red Lion.

Red Lion Hotel – 27th January 2017 – Steve

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 27th January 2017
Colchester, Essex

It is a rare occasion when I feel threatened or intimidated by spirit, but this particular event in room 7 there was an unpleasant atmosphere. The group that I took in here for a séance started out as lacklustre in energy although the spirit was present he gave his name as Brian and that he passed away in the 1980s. He said he was a local man who often visited the Red Lion Hotel. He didn’t give any other information, but he looked to be in his early 50s. Brian could move some of the guest’s arms and push and pull people by their arms. He was able to pull most of the group to the floor in the second group.
Suddenly, the spirit showed us his true nature. I saw what I can only describe as a “dirty old man”, one of the guests looked in the same direction as I did and promptly screamed as she saw something sitting in the chair and it scared her.
As it turned out Brian was a nasty man who would bring you girls and boys back to his room at the hotel, he was never challenged or arrested for his crimes although he didn’t say how he passed away.
The atmosphere that was in this room scared me and most of the guests. No-one really wanted to spend any time in this room, many guests wanted to leave the room immediately but I wanted the spirit to react or say something on my voice recorder. (Nothing was heard from the spirit during the recording).
Whilst this was a fascinating experience for me, as I have been a professional ghost hunter for 13 years but this is probably only the second time in all those years where I too didn’t feel comfortable in a haunted bedroom.
The rest of the ghost hunt was a good night with the scrying being exciting for some of the guests as strange photos were taken in the room.

Fort Borstal – 12th November 2016 – Kym

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 12th November 2016
Rochester, Kent

Very atmospheric tonight with low mist on this dark night, making the fort look just that little bit more spooky.  We started with our first groups with Sean doing Kit in the Counterscarp Gallery, and myself doing Ouija and Glass Work in the Cartridge Store.  In Sean’s sessions they noticed a blue halo around the Edi Meter, and white flashes in the corner of a room, and the pendulums were very active with guests enjoying how fast they were rotating, and changing direction when requesting.  In my first sessions with glass work and ouija we spoke to a female aged over 50 in the 1940′ or 1960’s, did not like men, had possibly been raped and had a child.  She had not passed over as she still visits her daughter and grand-children.  She lived in Rochester when alive.  Her name was Ellie (short for Eleanor) and had committed suicide here at the fort.  We were feeling like we were being touched, and hearing unexplained noises.  We did finish with a glass work session near the entrance, and the spirit with us said he was Sergeant Andrews.  His energy was incredibly strong and said he would join us later.

With our next sessions Sean was doing Table Tipping in the Caponier, and I was in the Officers Mess doing a Séance Circle and Human Pendulum.  In Sean’s sessions the Table Tipping was incredible with the table tipping, spinning and walking around the room.  They did have an odd smell of fruit, saw a mist and heard a scurry on the floor – no animals located!  They did also tap on the table and heard taps back twice.  With myself we had some movement in the séance circle’s, and felt coldness and tingles on our hands when being moved,  but had more results from the pendulums.  We had Sergeant Andrews with us again, he had been killed in battle on the Somme by a German soldier, and did not have a grave.  He was not married and had no children.  He liked both men and women.  We also had the spirit of a woman who had worked at the fort as a chef.  She had been hurt by Sgt Andrews, and had hung herself.  We asked if she had a message for us – yes – “Be aware of men!”

Colchester Town Hall – 5th November 2016 – Kym

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 5th November 2016
Colchester, Essex

The town hall in Colchester is a fantastic venue, many areas to explore from the basement to council chambers and offices, to the flat on the top floor, with a lot of interaction from spirit.

I was on the top floor doing a séance circle and human pendulum, and we started of with the circle and having some gentle movement for some, a bit more energetic for others.  When we did the pendulum we were able to communicate with spirit, and found out that initially we were talking to a male spirit, then we had a 13 year old girl who was his daughter.  Her name was Sarah, and she and her mother were witches.  She was brought to Colchester to be burned at the stake, and her father was the one that started the fire.  Some people in the circle were feeling heat, others were feeling coldness.  We had asked spirit to make a noise in the room, and just as we were finishing there was a very loud bang on a table leaning up against a wall, which made many jump!

With my second group we had a little movement in the séance circle, but then switched to the pendulum.  The spirit that was with us had come with the group from the previous table tipping session.  Gareth (team) had been with that group too and had joined us.  The spirit was Charlie age 56/57 and had worked as a prison guard at the town hall.  One guest wanted to know how he passed, so I asked everyone to clear their minds, and I asked Charlie to give the last feeling/pain he had before he passed.  One guest felt a pain in their chest, and yes Charlie had passed with a heart attack.  Charlie had passed in 1923, and had fought in France in WW1.  He was married with three children, but had a fallen in love with an English nurse whilst at war.  She had died there and Charlie was heart broken.  He did come home to his family, and did tell his wife of his sadness.  The next spirit that joined us was someone from our kit session at the start of the evening.  We had the following information come through on the Ovilus: Jim Murphy shoot, and the spirit that was with us was Jim Murphy.  He had shot someone, then he had been shot in the head.  He had passed age 28.  We felt this energy was very strong so switched back to a seance circle, and asked the spirit of Jim to move us.  Initially we had some very gentle arm movement, then noticing some were being pushed/pulled down to the floor, I asked spirit to push everyone down, and yes we were all pushed down to the floor!  When I asked spirit to move us all back and step away as our session had finished, we all returned to our original positions.

A fantastic night, with all the guests interacting with the spirits brilliantly, and therefore all having some lovely personal experiences.

Red Lion Hotel – 1st October 2016 – Kym

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 1st October 2016
Colchester, Essex

Area: Cellar
Equipment: Table Tipping, Dowsing Rods & Pendulums
With all my groups, we started by using the dowsing rods & pendulums, and everyone could communicate with spirit, and some were feeling the presence of spirit too.  We would often ask spirit to point the rods to where they were standing, and we could back that up by feeling their presence.  One time we would move around the area, still sensing the spirit behind us and the rods would continue to move with us.  With the Table Tipping we were all getting some movement, with my first and last group we did ask spirit to copy our taps and whistles, and both times we had a response back.  One guest also felt a cold touch to his face from where we heard the whistle.  In my last group, we asked spirit to rotate all the pendulums clockwise if he wanted to join us for table tipping, and to our surprise they all did.  Whilst table tipping in that last session we asked spirit to walk the table to where he was standing, of which it did, and in that area the guests could feel coldness there.  With such a strong response on the table, using yes & no movements, we could communicate with the spirit.  At one point Janet (guest) asked a question that the spirit did not like (did you murder someone?) and the table walked rapidly to her taking her very much by surprise!  We continued to communicate with this spirit into the free session, and with Mike’s (guest) knowledge on the history of Colchester, we established this spirit was a Parliamentarian Soldier who fought in the 1648 Colchester Siege.  He felt responsible for the murder of his troops he sent to fight.  At this point, everyone felt an immense sadness.  We asked if he had passed to the other side, he answered no.  We asked if he needed help to pass over, and the table rocked to yes and no.  At this point we asked the spirit to go to the light, do not be frightened, and you will not be judged.  And immediately we all felt his presence go.  Thank you to Group A for sharing that experience with me – very special.

Sandford Mill – 17th September 2016 – Kym

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Sandford Mill ghost hunt 17th September 2016
Chelmsford, Essex

Area: Barn
Ouija & Table Tipping
With our first group we had gently rocking with the table in the main area and the classroom, but not much more.  We could feel the energies of the spirit(s) around us.  With the Ouija we had the spirit of Gert with us.  She was 12 years old and took a dislike to our camera person Jason.  She said he reminded her of her gov (governer).  Jason thought he felt someone touch his bum, when he asked if it was her she spelt “YUK”.  When Jason asked if she died of a heart attack she spelt “STUPID”.  She then spelt “JASON” and moved the glass to goodbye, telling him to go as she stayed with us.  We asked what year she was from and had “45”.  Wasn’t sure what century though.
With the second group we had very little information on the Ouija: Stuart 1935 & Christine 1956.  With the Table Tipping there was some movement in the classroom, but when we moved to the main room there was a lot more movement.  The table was being moved by a female, however there was the presence of a male spirit in the room who she didn’t like.  She was a working girl and he was her boss.  We were feeling his presence by coldness, tingles and also headaches. We felt they were from the 1800’s.  The table moved a lot, but would stop when we felt him move closer.  However with a lot of encouragement from those on the table we was able to experience some brilliant table moving.
With our last group we had the spirit of Desmond from 1945.  He said he was a code breaker and a spy, and had a connection with Bletchley Park, and possibly the buildings here.  The table was moving a lot also, with many spins and walking around the hall.  The more we encouraged spirit, the move movement we had.
In my free session I joined Gareth on his Tech Session in the Water Filtration Building.  After handing out equipment, explaining how things worked, everyone went of to explore this very large building.  We did come across one spirit called James Wright “Jimmy”. He was age 40 – 50 yrs, and had worked here.  He had fallen over some railings into a tank.  Gareth was feeling a sudden pain in his lower back, when we asked sprit to take the pain away it immediately went.  Jimmy confirmed this was his pain when he fell.  He also said he had died 6.5 hours later and was buried in the grounds.  Gareth had had the word compound on the Ovilus earlier, and Jimmy confirmed that was where he was secretly buried.  But amazingly for me I saw a ball of mist move down towards us then move back away.  Then a few minutes later saw it again.  We asked Jimmy if that was him and he said yes.  We could also feel his energy around us too.  On the Ovilus I had the word “cough”, and a little while later we all heard a cough but it was none of us.
A brilliant night at Sandford Mill – cannot wait to return.

Red Lion Hotel – 28th May 2016 – Kym

Friday, July 8th, 2016

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

red-lion-hotel-01

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

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

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