Red Lion Hotel – 27th January 2017 – Steve

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.

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 29th October 2015
Colchester, Essex

red-lion-hotel-01

The first two sessions were using kit and gadgets in the haunted bedrooms.

My séances sessions were held as usual in the cellar, the first group had the most activity and all hands were lifted and manipulated. The spirit responsible was called Henry, 46 years old and from 1810-12 when he was Hotel Manager.

The second group didn’t have as much movement although there was some swaying and rocking.

Towards the end of the night we were all in the Restaurant using a combination of Writing planchette and Ouija board and met a boy aged about 8 years old who was drawing various shapes and objects for the guests.

Another excellent ghost hunt and we hope to return in 2016

Landguard Fort ghost hunt – 10-11-2012

Friday, November 23rd, 2012

Landguard Fort Ghost Hunt, 10th November 2012
Felixstowe, Suffolk

This was our first visit to this venue. When we looked around the place it was in the height of the summer and a nice warm day, although spiritual activity was high on that day even though the place was full of tourists, so as a team we were really looking forward to this ghost hunt as the place has so much potential and it is a large venue with plenty of rooms for guests to investigate.

I had divided up the Fort into two areas for each team and during our initial walk the other members of my team couldn’t believe how much space was available and we knew that neither group would be disturbed by each other as we were far enough away from each other.

I had earmarked one particular area that I felt was going to be a good spot for any séance as even when I visited this on the site visit, it was a spooky place. This was the Caponier.

After letting the guests wander with our equipment for a few minutes in the very long tunnel, which had many rooms adjoining it I came across a male spirit called Christopher, he was a Second World War soldier (Army) who had fair skin, light coloured hair, of a slim build but about 6’ tall. Some of the guests were able to communicate with him via the gadgets. As we approached the Caponier the KII meters came alive, which led me to believe that a séance here would be very productive.

During the séance Christopher managed to move the guests arms, push and pull them and sway them from left to right and even move them in a strange circular motions.

The second group had already been accustomed to our equipment and were eager to set off in the warren of tunnels, however we immediately started at The Caponier with a séance to see what level of activity this group would have.

A male spirit by the name of Mr Bamford was present, this energy seemed to have no emotion and he was a stocky chap, square faced with dark hair. The KII meters were left around the room and showed little sign of life until the séance started, then were active throughout. The séance started with gentle pushing and arm movement, just about all the guests had their arms moved, then the spirit started to push people into awkward and painful positions, some guests were pushed into the walls of the Caponier. Many guests including myself felt a heavy pressure on shoulders and the top of our arms as well as in our backs, the spirit energy was pushing us all downwards. At one point I had to step of the circle to help guests and in doing so the weight I felt in my arms was passed onto the person standing on my right, he too felt the very uncomfortable pain on his shoulders, but this was not a downwards pressure but an upward one, which is a strange feeling. After I closed the séance the spirit energy departed.

After our controlled sessions we let the guests wander throughout the fort with any of our equipment, whilst we either accompanied them or let them investigate on their own. I spent a lot of time trying to find people as there were so many rooms and so few guests (compared to some of our other events). Whilst walking through the tunnel complex I heard a lot of bangs, metal clanking and other metallic sounds along with the sound of footsteps on a wooden floor, which was odd because all the floors were I stood were concrete. As it turned out I was alone in the tunnel complex, but didn’t know it until I had walked the whole tunnel.

I joined a few guests in the upstairs rooms of the keep, there were many female energies present here & I told the guests that if they knocked on the door they may hear a response. One of the rooms there was a female spirit called Mary, who was very smartly dressed, not military who was able to repeat knocks on command.

In one of the bath rooms I came across a male spirit called Terry who was a handyman from 1880s. Terry was able to interact with the guests through our equipment and although we cannot be sure but several times noises were heard within the bath room, unfortunately no-one could actually distinguish or agree what the sounds were e.g. wooden, metallic etc.

When walking upstairs through the gun rooms on my own I heard the sound of someone walking behind me, as I turned to talk to them, there was no one there! Guests who were in this area also heard similar sounds and one guest thought that a GHE team member had stood beside him, when he turned to speak, no-one was there!

Sean (GHE Paranormal Investigator) also heard the sound of “wet” footsteps behind him when walking on the upper levels and once again, no-one was there.

Some of the guests whilst walking in the tunnel felt a “do not approach” feeling, so badly that they came to find me to find out why. When I entered the tunnel and the surrounding magazine rooms I couldn’t sense any spirit energies and the guests admitted that it didn’t feel the same now that I was with them.

This ghost hunt was a brilliant one, as the level of paranormal activity felt by all the guests was high throughout the night. We as a team thoroughly enjoyed the Fort (and have booked more dates for 2013) as it was a pleasure to investigate a large venue where we could let our guests go anywhere they wanted without fear of any hazards. We are still analysing our video from this event but will publish any interesting clips on our YouTube channel as soon as we have finished the analysis.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt (2nd Report) 22-9-2012

Friday, October 12th, 2012

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 22nd September 2012
Chatham, Kent.

Group B – Hanging Room

As we climbed the stairs and entered the room, I felt there was someone standing in the corner on the left, the guest behind me felt the same.  Immediately we had spirit present on the K2’s and Ghost Pro’s.  I asked if the spirit had been with us at last week’s ghost hunt – answered yes.  We then established it was the French Soldier called Cuet.  He was a prisoner at Fort Horsted, and said he was killed in this room.  We also had another spirit on the Ghost Pro – a British Soldier from WWII.  Asking for spirit to make a noise, we heard a footstep.  Guest were also sensing spirit walking around them, with some guests being touched.  I asked for spirit to move some of the guests, and some said they had.  Dan to my right, myself, and Charlie to my left all felt they being pushed forward.  I had placed a ball and motion sensors at the top of the stairs, and although the ball didn’t move the sensors were activated several times.  Just as our session came to an end and torches were being turned on, I saw a someone standing against the wall to the left of the stairs with his arms folded, turning my torch on thinking it was a guest, no-one was there.  Explaining what I saw, Charlie (guest) said he had seen the same.  This was a first for me seeing spirit, and having someone else see the same confirmed I wasn’t imagining it.

Group C – Hanging Room

Again when entering the room we had K2 and Ghost Pro spirit activity immediately.  And after a short while of questioning we established we had the same spirit energies as before.  I was also able to find out the spirit I had seen before was the British Soldier.  We also noticed, we had two Ghost Pro’s in use and the British and French Soldiers always came through on the same one.  The British on one and the French spirit on the other.  Whilst standing in the room one guest started feeling sick and dizzy.  She swapped places with someone else and she started feeling the same, whilst the other guest was feeling better.  A third person stood in that area and again felt unwell.  We then noticed a warm area where spirit said they were standing, however on the opposite side of the room guests were feeling very cold behind them.  We asked spirit to make everyone feel cold, and those that were feeling warm started feeling cold.

Group A – Hanging Room

Again when entering the room we had K2 and Ghost Pro spirit activity immediately, confirming that the same two energies as before were with us.  When guests stood in a particular corner of the room they felt unwell, stepping away they felt much better.  After 45 minutes guests Graham & Adam wanted to be in the room alone, so I took the remaining guests to the opposite side of the fort.  As we were walking there one of the guests looked left into a room and felt an unfriendly male energy looking back at her, her ghost pro lit up and stayed lit up until we got to room 34.  We tried to establish who the spirit was but it was inconclusive.  Adam & Graham in the meantime had felt uneasy on their own, feeling very cold.  They threw a ball onto the floor, which moved, stopped, then started moving again.  When asking spirit on the Ghost Pro if they had moved the ball, the answer was yes.

Fort Horsted never disappoints, can’t wait to return.

Pilgrims Way Woods ghost hunt – 10-8-2012

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Pilgrims Way Woods ghost hunt – 10th August 2012

The last time that I investigated this particular woods was several months ago and I had forgotten how steep the hill is to get to the woods since there is no easy way to get to these woods from either end. After we made our way up the hill, (which gave everyone more exercise than they were anticipating) and onto the disused road of Pilgrims Way I started to explain what had occurred here before and what sort of things the guests could expect, as we (Ghost Hunt Events) do not intend to scare our customers and what we do isn’t designed to be scary, but nevertheless people might get scared because of the location.

After entering the woods and finding a suitable place to sit against a tree I gave the guests some of our kit (a KII meter and a ghost communicator) to allow them to see when spirit energies were close to them and so that they may ask questions that have a yes or no answer.

A female energy joined us, her name was Charlotte and she was aged in her late 50s or early 60s. It transpired from the questions the guests asked that she was not from Kent and had no children nor married. When I asked whether she was here because we were she answered “Yes”. Which isn’t a great surprise to me as this often happens, spirit not related to the location often visit just to participate in whatever we are doing. When people ask why the most common answer is because they can.

There was also a male energy present, although his name I couldn’t understand but it sounded similar to Frank but could have been Framke which might be Swedish? He was in his late 50s and a stocky build and was a farmer.

The guests also questioned this spirit for some time as well as Charlotte. During the periods of questioning there were high levels of KII activity, as if spirit were walking amongst us.

Some of the guests also took photographs at this time and some had photographed light anomalies or orbs, but nothing more interesting than this.

I tried using my SB7 (a Spirit box – which is a device that scans radio waves at 100ms in reverse, so any voices we hear on this we can be sure that it is not being broadcast.) There were possibly a number of names called out on this device and a possible “Hello” but unfortunately there was a lot of radio stations and the usual static was interspersed with lots of snippets of music.

I decided that we should hold a séance so that all the guests would hopefully feel the spirit energies and be affected in some way. Almost as soon as we started there was a very bright white light flash behind where we were standing, which lit up the woods. It was similar to a very powerful camera flash, although no-one took a photo (as we were all holding hands) and there is nothing nearby that could cause this. This was the only time all evening that we saw this.

A male energy came to join us, his name was Timothy. He was 22 years old wearing modern clothing, possibly from 1970s era. He was of a slim build and had ginger hair and fair skin. As I asked him to push the guests I heard him announce to me (no one else heard it) who he was attempting to move or manipulate.

First he pushed Tia (guest) gently from side to side and then in an anticlockwise circle movement, which Tia found a little odd. Timothy then moved on to Natalie (guest) and she too was pushed from side to side and then in the same anticlockwise pattern. As I could see him move around the group I knew exactly who was likely to be next but thought better of announcing it as it would be a greater surprise to the guest when it happened. Suddenly Dawn (guest) too felt as if she had lost her balance and fell backwards, like someone had bumped into her, which surprised her. Both Tia and Natalie were still be moved when Dawn again felt another jolt backwards.

Tia also was pushed forwards and backwards much to her amazement as she was trying to keep still but Timothy was having none of that!

As we were about to finish the séance we all heard a loud noise quite close to us, it sounded like someone had stood on a twig and it had snapped. Since there was no wind and no animal heard rustling this noise was unexpected and anomalous.

After the séance I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment, where I asked all the guests to think of a question to ask Timothy, the more personal a question the more likely the spirit will respond.

After the guests asked their respective question I played the recording back and during this I noted that some of the questions had answers, on the second play of the experiment I pointed out where I heard the possible answers and also we all heard a very distinct “Hello” after I said my name to Timothy. On analysis of this recording there is also another “Hello” after I ask my question which was not audible at the time. You can hear this at http://youtu.be/Uw1GeujsiBE

The guests questions also had answers and you can hear these at:-http://youtu.be/n0asdi283mI
http://youtu.be/b8jtpLLA0xo
http://youtu.be/9RbUHGoXxx0
http://youtu.be/GSUhJ7EXxwo
http://youtu.be/5EYyWiFEBGI

Considering there were 6 guests and myself this was a very successful EVP experiment, with only one person not having a response after their question.

This concluded our ghost hunt at Pilgrims Way Woods and this is one ghost hunt which will be repeated in the future mainly to see whether we get as many or similar clarity of EVPs as we don’t often get more than one or two per investigation.

Once again the guests thoroughly enjoyed their ghost hunt and we made the long walk back to the cars but thankfully the walk was all downhill.

Bicknor Church and Woods ghost hunt – 3-8-2012

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

Bicknor Church & Woods ghost hunt – 3rd August 2012

Every time we come here for a ghost hunt something different and interesting happens, either in the woods or near the church. This time however we had both.

Around the back of the church (in a field), which on previous occasions has been the scene of some very unusual and paranormal activity, we came across a female energy who would not tell us any personal information, but according to our communication devices we were standing on her grave.

Some unusual noises and whistles were also heard by the guests and the Ghost Hunt Events team.

Also whilst sat here we used the Ovulus and some words were heard in response to guests questions. There was also a very high level of KII activity as if the energy was walking to and fro from the church. Using our SB7 (a spirit box, which scans the radio frequencies in reverse at 100ms) we all heard “Hello” spoken.

Several of the questions asked were recorded for possible ghost voices (EVPs – Electronic Voice Phenomena) and there are some excellent spirit voices recorded. You can hear them at:-

http://youtu.be/G0NQOKG8l08
http://youtu.be/_V-TPbrk95s
http://youtu.be/9brjNSuRLVw

As we were walking away from the car park, Stuart & Donna (guests) heard a sound which made them catch up with the rest of us, Stuart described the sound as being a metallic clanking sound, not like keys, but something heavier.

We then made our way into the woods, which were as usual very quiet with a distinct lack of animal sounds, which makes hearing any noises that much easier. There was also no wind to speak of either.

After setting up a laser grid pointing along the path, many people noticed that some of the lights were being blocked as if someone was walking across the path. Many guests felt unstable on their feet and several complained of swaying which was unusual because the path is generally flat.

Also in this spot there were brief periods of high KII activity. Whilst Carl & Marc (Ghost Hunt Events team members) carried out an EVP experiment, I walked further down the path to find a particular spot which on a previous occasion proved to be a rather active place and one in which many of the guests present felt uncomfortable as well as very high levels of spiritual and ghostly activity.

After walking the guests to the spot that I had just come from we held a séance to try to get the spirit energies that were present to physically move the guests.

We were joined by two energies, one a male energy called Roy who was 67 year old and a local farmer and Francis who was female and about 30 years old.

Gentle arm movement was felt by Wendy, Lloyd, Bradley and Stuart (guests) and when I asked for the energies present to push some guests Andy, me, Lloyd and Bradley all felt some gentle pushing. Several of the guests also noted that they thought they could see shadows moving within the woods.

During the séance and afterwards Andy was being drawn to an area to the right of where we stood, he kept looking in that direction during the séance and after we finished he had the urge to go to that area. When he got there he felt cold (it was a warm night) and also nauseous. Andy then called me over to see if it was just him. It wasn’t. I too did not feel right in this spot and although I cannot describe exactly how I felt, my head did not feel right, like I had just been shaken violently.

At this point Andy had to leave as he was feeling ill, the nausea had got too much. The rest of the group came over and with the communication device we established that this particular spot had been the site of a murder. The energy that was causing all the feelings was a male energy about 14-16 years old and he had been strangled and his body buried in the woods. He did not, or was not able to give a year and the audio recording from this area revealed no voices. Unfortunately the feelings I felt had got the better of my and I too had to leave the area as I was feeling the same sensations that Andy felt. Just before I left the area Donna, Stuart & Wendy all had a metallic taste, which is usually the taste of blood, they too felt the coldness and we all heard voices and footfalls in the direction of the path. But since I had to leave none of them wanted to stay there!

Carl also decided that he would investigate the area, but after a few minutes he too came back and reported that he tasted blood and said that the area did not feel right.

We decided that this was probably a good time to stop the investigation and made our way back to the Church.

Once again a very active and enjoyable ghost hunt with plenty of activity and some very clear EVPs (ghost voices) recorded.

Rye Castle ghost hunt – 21-7-2012

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Rye Castle (Ypres Tower) ghost hunt – 21st July 2012

We have held two ghost hunts at Rye Castle in the past and each time the level of activity increases nothing could have prepared us for what happened on 21st July. It was truly exceptional what the guests experienced.

We started with two groups, one group going up to the upper level, the other to the basement level. My group on the upper level had within minutes much KII activity and plenty of communication via our electronic devices and since it was still relatively light outside the room felt safe and generally comfortable.

To give the guests an experience of the spirits that reside within the wall of the Tower I decided that it would be pertinent to hold a séance, as this is the best way to experience spiritual activity.

We were joined by a male energy called Tony, he was aged in his mid-40s and quite a stocky build since he was about 5’8” in height. He was wearing a white shirt and brown or tan trousers but what struck me as being odd is that he had very shiny black shoes. The shoes did not look like they belonged to him. Tony was a happy spirit and I felt he would have been quite a character when he was alive, as his facial expressions hid nothing. He had a round likeable face although slightly bald. He seemed to be have no reason to be in the tower. If he did he didn’t tell me.

During the séance circle Tony moved the guests arms on request and did exactly what they asked, even when the guests did not voice their request.

We were also joined by Agnes a female energy who remained non talkative from the start. She was well dressed and aged in her late 40s.

Lorraine (guest) could smell sick during the séance which made her feel uncomfortable and then she could taste it as well which nearly made her physically sick!

Ted (the Rye Castle Museum guide) could also smell manure as did some of the guests including Lorraine. Ted also smelt roses but only in a certain part of the room, Jeff (guest) too also smelled roses.

There was also a Policeman or Peeler present. He only gave me his surname as Constable Peace. He looked about 30 years old but did not talk to me, just looked on for the entire séance, which not only involved gentle arm movement but also some swaying and for Rachael (guest) some much more forceful movement.

During this time we could see light flashing through the floor which we assumed was the other group taking photographs, however light would not have reached us from where they were (in the basement) and when we asked them after the session had finished they did not take any photos on the ground floor, which had they done so we would have seen. The light we saw has no rational explanation as light cannot pass through solid objects.

 

After a short break both groups swapped locations.

Once again on the upper floor we had excellent communication via our electronic equipment but this time very little KII activity. The room also felt different and most people noticed this. Both Ted and I had no explanation for why this might be.

Once again we were joined very quickly by a young energy. His name was Timothy Spratt, his father was a local fisherman and his mother was imprisoned in the Tower. He was about 9 or 10 years old and was dressed in what I would call a school uniform and had blonde hair.

There were also two female energies present, possibly sisters as they looked alike, aged about 20 years old and they just stood by the display cabinets and some of the guests saw shadows in that area of the room.

Ted commented to me that he felt uncomfortable in one of the corners beside a cell. I could feel the spirit energy that was responsible, although he posed no threat to us at this time even though he wasn’t a particularly nice person.

Once again I started a séance circle so that these guests could experience spirit activity and hopefully get some physical movement.

The movement started gently with simple arm movements to the majority of the guests. Many of the guests were amazed at this as they did not expect anything to happen!

I noticed a male energy that seemed to appear from nowhere step really close to the circle, the other energies that were present all disappeared and the movement stopped briefly then started again but with more force. The male energy gave his name as Benjamin and he made Claire (guest) feel very uncomfortable. All Benjamin told me is that he was the energy that Ted felt in the room earlier and that he hated women and used to murder them for fun. He was imprisoned briefly in the Tower for murder. Benjamin tried to twist my hands and Shelly’s (guest) apart, as Shelly was standing next to Claire and Benjamin thought he could get to her that way.

Many guests also felt very cold when Benjamin was standing near them, this felt like the sort of cold felt when opening a freezer.

Teresa (guest) who was standing on my left felt movement around her ear and hair, several minutes later her earring “fell out”, which given the way earrings are attached could not have been an accident as everyone was holding hands and no one touched Teresa’s ear.

The energy Benjamin was making many of the guests feel uncomfortable and we could all feel a force which was pushing us downwards. Ted had moved from where he was sitting because he too didn’t feel well sitting in that spot and moved to the other side of the room.

Many guests felt sensations around the back of the necks and their hair, I too felt a restriction around my throat. Shelly also felt pains and touches in her sides.

Then I saw my guide, this is something which I don’t often see, which is just as well because every time I do it means I or someone in the circle is in danger. Within a matter of seconds, after I had told the guests what I had seen I was just about to say “He’s Gone” when everyone in the room felt a huge relief and we were all able to stand upright. The atmosphere in the room changed from its thick nature when we started to a light an airy nature. The guests could not believe what they had just experienced, especially Teresa who was a sceptic.

After another short break everyone headed out into the courtyard and Women’s Tower. In the top room we have experienced much activity before and as we started Carl (GHE team) stood in the corner of the room that he didn’t like and an area which many guests have felt odd or strange.

Marc (GHE team) and myself were calling out for spirit to make a noise or to whistle. Carl heard some responses although he was wearing an audio amplification device, the rest of us did not hear those sounds.

Once again some of the guests were feeling sick. I had warned them that this may happen, as it has every time we have visited the Women’s Tower. Marc using his Ovulus had the male energy Tony (from the earlier séance) telling us to go outside.

I decided that this was the best opportunity to do an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. Everyone asked a question to spirit and when we played it back we could all hear a response after one of the guests questions. On further analysis we had six spirit voices after a question but during the analysis only four of those could be understood; you can hear them at:-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4YqohaahzU
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-I-pALBZQ40
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zlAIbgzUgWs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GIX6Ho7_d0Y

Ted by this time wasn’t feeling well (again!) neither was Carl and both had to leave the room. Marc decided that it would probably be a good idea to hold a séance circle to build the energy and get the spirit energies to do something. After a short amount of time there were energies present and people were feeling strange and odd sensations. Marc then asked if they guests were OK, but Teresa failed to answer. Marc said that her could feel her “going” and I stepped in to place her in the middle of the circle as she did not respond to her name being called out. Once in the circle she came back straight away although she felt very tearful and insisted that she leave the room, so I escorted her outside, where she remained tearful and she explained that she felt the despair and the emotions of the spirit energies that were held there.

This was undoubtedly the most interesting ghost hunt and the most activity felt by the guests that we have held at Rye Castle and I suspect that the reason for this is that we are not allowed to go back until 2013 because the Museum is having some major repair work on the roof of the Women’s Tower and the building will be closed for many months.

All the guests and Ted thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as did we because the EVP’s that we recorded here are some of the clearest that we have recorded to date.

South Foreland Lighthouse ghost hunt – 29-6-2012

Friday, July 13th, 2012

South Foreland Lighthouse ghost hunt – 29th June 2012

Last years ghost hunt at South Foreland lighthouse was excellent however the weather in October was a little bit windy so we were hoping for a better day for June 2012 and because of the tine of year we were able to see France with ease and much of the coastline of Kent as well as the infamous Goodwin Sands where many ships have sunk over the years.

Fortunately due to the location there weren’t any noises apart from an occasional announcement from Dover docks which was carried on the wind to interfere with our investigation.

After a brief history and tour of the building from the National Trust representative the majority of the group headed into the lower ground floor room, as this was the only room which was completely dark, however myself and Carl (team member) remained outside of this room as we were conducting a special EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. The difference being that both Carl & I were wearing our respective hearing amplification equipment which meant that whilst we could hear the other group clearly we could also conduct our own quiet recordings without interrupting the other group.

During this session many bangs and tapping sounds heard by both of us were heard. These all sounded like someone on the floor above us but no-one was on that floor. We also heard whispers and voices which once again sounded like someone above us. I however had the sensation that my shirt was being pulled out from behind me, but I did not sense any spirit present at that time, although the other group had asked the spirit with them to do something to either of us. (Their report will follow).

When the group had finished in the lower ground floor, myself & Carl ventured into that room, as soon as I took two steps into the room I felt an amazing amount of pain in my right knee, it felt like someone had just kicked my knee. The rest of the group found this very funny as they had asked the spirit that was present to do that to another guest. I had trouble walking for a couple of hours and it hurt every time I went up or down a step.

The second session was held in the Control room of the lighthouse; a female energy called Elizabeth came forward and told us that she lived in the lighthouse with her husband who was a keeper. During this session many bangs and knocking was heard by everyone. Marc (team member) went to investigate one of the knocks as it sounded like the outside door and although we were sure it was locked he went to check. As soon as he was outside the room he exclaimed to himself that it felt odd, although we could clearly here him. He later explained that the atmosphere on that part of the staircase felt strange and stagnant.

Our third session was once again split; some guests followed me into the lower ground floor and others onto the upper ground floor and control room. We were joined by a male energy called Timmy Sullivan who was about 17 or 18 years old and he presented himself as being a simple person. He had dark short hair and was very slim or skinny and about 5’9”. He gave the year of his passing as 1891.

Lots of audible noises were then heard by everyone present, some of the noises sounded like a clock (although there were no clocks in the room) and then just as I thanking Timmy for making a noise we all heard an extremely loud crack right behind me, what this was I have no idea, because nothing in the room was on (there were electrical meters and general lighthouse workings behind me). Tapping on the metallic objects in the room also were repeated back to us as were whistles.

One of the guests who was sitting in a chair felt uncomfortable, so she moved to the other side of the room. This corresponds with a male energy who had turned up, he was 55 years old and basically came in swearing at us, although I was the only person who could hear him, but the guests present felt the atmosphere change. Many more noises were heard including a very loud bang which occurred right in front of me. From this point on one of the team entered the room and sat in the chair that the female guest had sat in and within a few minutes he too wasn’t feeling well and had to leave the room. One of the female guest also left the room as she was frightened.

I then conducted a series of EVP experiments, during which a number of noises continued, mostly it sounded like someone tapping on the metallic objects in the room.

The best EVP can be heard at http://youtu.be/NSRt9pqrM50

Also during the experiment a guest asked a question but instead of an EVP a loud “tick” was heard, you can hear it at http://youtu.be/PCvRl_LuRfU The tick sound had no obvious explanation as nothing in the room had previously made this noise all night.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt with lots of activity. Many Thanks to Janet and the National Trust for making this event run smoothly.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 9-6-2012 (Two)

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Fort Horsted Ghost Hunt – 9th June 2012

Having mustered group A MW and Kym set up vigil in area 10, commencing in the right hand side room as you enter the area. A ouija table, hand bell, singing bowl and candles had been installed prior to the guests arrival, and trigger objects set out in area 21 (a wooden cross, two old type florins, equivalent to 10p nowadays, and a small packet of old type cigarettes and an old matchbox). The group joined hands and embarked upon a séance/vigil, with Kym and MW calling out, assisted by Carl who was also responsible for video camera work. Several guests noted a distinct change in temperature, getting colder, with a “breeze” apparent on several occasions during this initial phase. MW picked up on a “presence”, female, and indications of a nursing connection. No name was evident. MW also reported sensing something behind him over his left hand shoulder, supported in this “feeling” by Lisa, who also reported a “tickling sensation on her face” likened to something crawling over her skin. She felt it was her hair, and constantly sought to adjust her fringe etc only to note that it was not her hair causing the effect at all. Several other guests indicated strange sensations on their respective personage, with leg/feet tingling, two independent cases of “something touching their lower leg areas”, someone reported having been touched from behind and several instances of swaying to and fro were noted.

Whistling was emitted several times by team/staff members and on at least two occasions all agreed that they had clearly heard a response, copying the original whistle pattern. A long, pronounced sigh was reported by one guest, emanating from above and behind the group. Requests to have spirit affect the candles revealed no change at all. At one point a long, high pitched “noise” became evident, though shortly afterwards, a passing, distant vehicle or motorbike engine could be heard, which may have attributed to the original anomaly, this was inconclusive.

During filming, and in tandem with MW announcing his “feeling” a presence moving about the outer area of the circle, Carl identified separate orb activity over and above/around MW and Lisa, this was clearly seen and recorded for further analysis. With several more instances of “strange feelings” and possible “contact” the circle was abandoned and the group moved across passage way to the ouija board area. Almost instantly, guests remarked on the falling temperature, however, MW and two other guests reported feeling extremely hot and sweaty, despite the coolness of the surroundings. Making provision for protection and ensuring that only the goodness and light were requested to come forward, a session ensued with some remarkable results. Shortly after commencing, Carl appeared to be in “distress” and MW asked if he needed assistance. Having encountered a “metallic taste” in his mouth he felt nauseous and in need of some fresh air. MW took over the camera and Carl left the building.

The board/glass indicated a presence, spelling out the name “GUGZ” which MW asked was perhaps a nickname, to which a pronounced and positive “YES” was the answer. Further questioning revealed a WW1 association/connection in the fort and a possible link with conscientious objectors, indicating that the spirit may well have been a guard or similar? MW indicated another presence within the room, a male and noted a name, but refrained from speaking until further table information was revealed. Spelling out the first three letters of the name when requested “PAR” MW interjected and advised the group that he had ;picked up on the name “PARKY” which immediately received a resounding ”YES” from the board. Pursuing the questioning, it was revealed that this link emanated from WWII with no connection whatsoever to the previous contact.

A lengthy and “informative” debate/conversation ensued culminating in a request from Kym for spirit to inscribe specific shapes and figures in the middle of the table. This was successfully achieved on three separate occasions with spirit providing a pronounced triangle shape, circle and a figure of eight in the midst of the table, amazing our guests somewhat.

Carl returned at this juncture, feeling much better, and MW, almost immediately, reported a total camera failure. Further checks revealed a drained battery supply to the video recorder, which minutes previously, had indicated almost three (3) hours further taping capacity. No explanation can be given for this strange anomaly, and both MW and Carl commented on the fact that this had never happened before at this venue? Guests, not actively involved in the Ouija were invited to “explore” the surrounding lighting tunnels, especially after MW reported a strong, cold breeze, emanating from one of the apertures, housing the candles, clearly affecting the flame. It should be noted here that the weather outside was still, calm and quite “warm and humid”, considering the recent gale force winds encountered in the locale. Other guests confirmed their having felt this “breeze” and noted a distinct fall in temperature simultaneously. MW reported the presence of a male spirit possibly called Ted who was moving around the room, but did not appear to engage with the guests via the board. When asked, Parky did refer to other spirits being present but could not define the number as requested, via the board. Pro Ghost Meter activity throughout the vigil was constant and regular though with the activity evident on the board, guests were not engaging with the meter so much, feeling more inclined to question and “communicate! with spirit via the Ouija board. KII EMF Meter activity was zero! The MEL Meter registered background, ambient readings no higher that 0.2mG Board activity declined until suddenly, and after several changes in guest involvement and participation, a new “contact” engaged with the group, at first tentatively, and with mixed, legible/credible messaging. However, in depth, specific, questioning, from two guests, confident that the letters being indicated were revealing details of a person that had passed, who knew one of those guests, proved fruitful. Scott Warner, an eighteen year old male, who died very suddenly, revealed himself through the board. Guarded questions from the two guests involved eventually did reveal factual evidence of this engagement, particularly the fact that this spirit had attained British, Judo Championship status, in his short lifetime. Clearly, the two guest involved, expressed emotional surprise, and after further engagement with the spirit, surprise at the clarity and information of the encounter both factually and personally. It transpires that Mark (guest) was a relative of this unfortunate young man and appeared convinced that he had indeed encountered the lads spirit.

Several times guests noted distinct cold spots within the immediate séance area. Throughout our time in area 10, constant, background mumbling could be heard, almost totally not connected with fellow investigators in the far off area 34. Checks indicated that there were no other people in the immediate area. Strange and general noises were apparent sporadically and “knocks/taps” were distinguishable at certain stages of the vigil. An EVP was undertaken in area 10 the details and data recorded still awaiting full analysis, though during, on site playback, there does appear to be some evidence of response/engagement at various points in the tape. Closing down the Ouija activity the group wandered through the tunnel towards the smoking area where several guests were invited to “explore” the area 21 lighting tunnels. MW broke off with several guests to visit the upper room in area 21 where trigger objects had been placed earlier in the evening. Guests were surprised to note that the wooden cross and one of the coins had indeed moved very slightly. During an encounter in the lighting tunnel, Matt and Simon heard footsteps behind them, accompanied by MW, and felt as if they were being followed very closely. Both guests were unnerved by this experience and asked to leave the area. A similar result ensued with Tom and Ryan. Upstairs, a brief EVP was undertaken and the results remain to be fully analysed.

The first session ended shortly afterwards and a refreshment break ensued.

The session with Group B, accompanied by the same staff/team members, went far more “quietly”. Area 10, the right hand side room, séance/hand holding session revealed very little activity with one female guest reporting feeling as if she were “swaying”, and Kym with guest to right were also being pushed backwards. Ouija activity in the adjacent room was extremely slow and subdued. However, once the glass began to move, the guests were led around the table, in a clockwise, circular motion, the glass actually spinning beneath their fingers. Messaging was indecipherable in the main with some words being evident but little meaningful or intelligent outcome being achieved. As the circular motion of the glass led the guests around the table, vibration and “wobbling” was reported by the guests. This increased, and strangely enough, appeared to be more intense, when female guests only requested activity on the board.

It was then decided the guests tried table tipping and whilst this was happening Kym filmed two orbs in the doorway.  Kym & Carl then moved into the corridor and twice heard whistling.  Kym returned to film the table being moved and felt a coldness to her right, described as a freezer door being opened.  Guests on the table in front felt this too. The table began to “shudder” and “shake”, faintly at first but building up gradually to a pronounced rocking and even an attempt to move the table across the floor surface. To illustrate the table movement more obviously, MW rested the hand bell on the table and during filming by Kym, the bell actually was made to ring clearly with the movement of the table by spirit.

Guests were clearly excited and surprised at this anomaly, and constantly sought to double check that there was no mechanical movement or false indications creating the activity of the table. MW encountered a strong and sudden headache at this juncture, which passed within ten minutes. Leaving the area 10 rooms behind, the group transited the tunnel once again, leading out into the open air and the smoking area.

After a short refreshment break, the final vigil began with a brief to enable guests an almost free range opportunity to engage in activities throughout the Fort. Paul, the “owner” assisted by taking small groups of guests to view the WWII graffiti areas. MW assisted guests in brief visits to area 21 again, area 34, where an EVP ensued, the data still to be analysed. Finally, a combined group visited area 26 where a laser grid was set up and calling out ensued.

Another EVP ensued and data will need to be reviewed. A hand holding séance, filmed by Sean, was undertaken with various anomalous results most interesting being two distinct “knocks or taps” from an adjacent wall. Very little else was reported or encountered by guests during the closing stages of the evening. A final and brief visit to the upper room in area 21, to check and retrieve the trigger objects revealed further slight movement to the cigarette box and the coin. MW also convened a brief EVP exercise whilst retrieving the goods the details of which still need analysing. The event finished at 0200 with guests appearing happy, contented and sufficiently satisfied with the event in general.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 9-6-2012 (One)

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 9th June 2012

It is always a fantastic experience for our guests and ourselves when we investigate Fort Horsted in Chatham, Kent. We have had some amazing experiences at the Fort and every time something new or different happens much to our delight. This time was no different.

After splitting the whole group into two smaller groups, both groups set off in opposite directions so that we knew that we could not hear each other and therefore any noises heard by either group was not our own doing. As the Fort is a horse shoe shape noise travels in the corridors very easily.

My first group set off to the furthest part of the Fort in an area which we have had some great experiences. All the guests had time to play with our equipment although there wasn’t a lot of KII activity. We did however have some very good activity on our communication device. I was aware of a male energy called Tomas (pronounced Thomas) although I could only see his face, he seemed to be of Mediterranean descent as he had olive skin, dark hair and dark eyes and rough shaven. He was about 30 years old and passed in the early 1980s. Although I do not know what his link with the Fort was. Tomas gave the majority of the people a push during the séance we held. Some guests also reported a sensation that they were being pushed downwards and felt a pressure on their shoulders. Tomas also moved the arms of myself, Donna, Steve and Kerry as we were all together and Stuart although felt no arm movement, did get pushed a lot.

Whilst the séance was taking place we all heard some very loud whispering and mumbling as well as the sound of footsteps approaching us. Paul (Business Development Manager) thought that the sound had to be a person and set off to investigate the sounds. He didn’t find anyone until he came across the other group, who were exactly where they were supposed to be. Therefore the noises we heard of people approaching are anomalous. I also set up a Geo phone (a device that visually shows noises) at the corner of a tunnel away from us but close enough so that if a noise was detected the lights on this device would light up so that we could see and hear the noise. This device lit up many times and some of the guests also reported seeing shadows and dark shapes move in the same corridor.

From here we moved into the very long and extremely dark tunnel which has proved to be eventful on previous occasions. This time though just about everyone felt an oppressive feeling that made them want to leave, but not on their own!

After short break I returned to this same area with the other group, once again there was little or no KII EMF activity but some good spirit communication from our electronic equipment. Many of the guests were very scared, not just because of the complete darkness but mainly because we heard very similar noises to our first session; mumblings, whispers and footsteps. A female energy called Alice made herself known to me. She was a Nurse in WWI, aged about 19 years old and was approximately 5’6” and had long brunette hair.

I suggested to some guests to put their hand out so that they could feel Alice, many reported pins and needles in their hands, although one guest actually felt a real touch which scared her witless. Other guests could also smell a fruity fragrance which they said did not smell like perfume. This has been reported before in this part of the Fort from our previous events. Many guests also felt cold spots and shivers which was not related to the weather as there was not a breeze within this part of the Fort. Taking the group into the long tunnel did not result in them feeling the same as the previous group. This time the atmosphere felt completely different.

After this session we allowed our guests to roam to some extent. They were able to go to any area of the Fort with us on a supervisory role. Many guests chose to go to the most interesting part of the Fort; the double casement.

I on the other hand took a small group of people to an area which a) has never been investigated before and b) it was an area that I wasn’t supposed to be in. Curiosity however led me here.

Since I have never been to this area before I did not know what to expect, although spirit joined us very quickly. A male energy whose name remains a mystery because he wouldn’t tell me approached us. He looked like a sailor not dissimilar to Captain Birdseye, however he was a carpenter who hand extremely large hands (he was generally quite a stocky built man) and smoked a pipe. When asking for this spirit to repeat a noise we were not disappointed, just about every noise we made we heard a response, although they were quiet responses we have recorded some of the whistles. We also heard footsteps from the staircase and other noises which sounded similar to stones being thrown.

We also heard several bangs and taps in response to our requests and a general mumbling sound, which due to where we were could not have been anyone else talking.

Whilst in this area I undertook several EVP recordings. The best is below and I commented at the time that I heard something, although not as clear as the recording.

Once again a very exciting and enjoyable ghost hunt and one which our guests thoroughly enjoyed although disappointed that we had to finish at 2.0am. The six hours according to most of the guests had just flown by.
