Colchester Town Hall – 17th April 2015 (Kym)

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 17th April 2015
Colchester, Essex

Area: Council Chambers
Equipment: Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Tech Equipment

Group C – We started by using the rods & pendulums, everyone chose one and started getting movement.  Once they had established their yes & no movements, they were able to ask the spirits some questions.  We had male & female spirits with us.  Marc (guest) whilst sitting in the mayor’s chair saw a large black shadow in one corner of the room, he placed a KII there but didn’t see any lights go on.  It wasn’t until I was talking to Edward (guest) later, he had felt a coldness next to him at the same time, in the same place as Marc had seen the shadow.  But when Marc had put the KII there it had disappeared.  Karen (guest) wanted to go to the Upper Gallery, and whilst there had a female spirit with her.  Just before I left her on her own there, I had the name Catherine given to me, asking spirit if that was her name using the Ghost Pro, it confirmed yes.  I left Karen talking to the spirit with her pendulum & ghost pro and she was able to find out the spirit had been murdered here by her husband, who had also killed their children.  She was an older woman with grey hair, with a hat wearing a black dress.  When Karen came down, Marc & Helen went to the balcony and whilst there they were asking spirit to touch them.  They started to realise both were being touched at the same time in the same place each time.  They also had the spirit box with them and asked the question “how many persons were in this room” and they clearly heard the number seven – there were seven of us.

Group A – Again started by showing the guests how to use the rods & pendulums, and most had movement.  Some had a male spirit, another had a small female child, possibly aged around 5 or 6.  We could feel her warm energy between us, around our hip height.  We both sensed she had long blond straight hair, she confirmed this by answering yes on the pendulum.  When using the spirit box we had alot of words come through, but none clear enough.  We were all hearing something different each time.  Steve (guest) was standing by the door using rods, and was sensing a mayor with him.  Asking if that was the shadow that was seen in the earlier session, the rods answered yes.  The rods also pointed to where we need to look to see him again, which was the same place seen earlier.  Steve had also felt a touch a moment before.  We did keep looking in that area hoping to see the shadow again, but unfortunately no.

Group B – Using the rods & pendulums again to start, lots had movement, all were able to communicate with spirit, some had male, others had female.  When using the equipment we did have some relavant words on the Ovilus, but had many more words on the Spirit Box: the name Bob & Stephen for the name of the spirits, no guests names said when asked but did say the number of people in the room correctly twice – ten.  People were seeing shadows in various places in the room, and one guest saw a shadow behind me at the same time I felt someone shaking my chair I was sitting on.
After the last controlled session finished I stayed with another team member Louise and did some glasswork.  The glass started moving, and after establishing our yes & no positions, the spirit confirmed he was the mayor from earlier.  Surprisingly we felt the table shake whilst the glass was moving.  This was a very large heavy table and we found it difficult to move ourselves.  We did ask the spirit to take the glass to where he was standing which he did.  We were also hearing noises and footsteps around us.  I could also feel someone touching my hair.

The Town Hall at Colchester is an amazing building, very active with spirit, and one I cannot wait to return.

Colchester Town Hall – 17th April 2015 (Kerry)

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 17th April 2015
Colchester, Essex

The Mayor’s Parlour
Ouija/Table tilting

Session 1 – Group B

The group were split so that half were on the Ouija and half doing table tilting.
With the first group, the glass took a very long time to move, but eventually it moved to the letters T and R. When asked if this was spirit’s initials, the glass then moved to Yes. Then the glass moved to numbers 2 and 3, and the glass confirmed that spirit’s age was 23 by once again moving to Yes. The group continued asking more questions to try and gain more information, but unfortunately there was no more movement on the glass after this.
The group on the other table had just slight rocking initially, then the table tilted up on one side. However, despite our best efforts to encourage spirit to move the table more or to spin it, unfortunately there wasn’t much more movement apart from gentle rocking and the occasional tilt.
We then swapped over and once again on the Ouija the glass didn’t move, but guests kept feeling coldness and touches on their arms. I also felt like I was touched on my left hand. One guest said they felt hands on their shoulders and another felt a push on their back.
When the other group tried the table tilting, they had movement straight away, with rocking and spinning, and at one point the table was spinning so fast that one of the guests fell onto the floor! He got back up to carry on and the table continued to spin and twist. When I asked spirit to walk the table across the room, it proceeded to do so, stopped halfway, and there was no more movement after that. During this session I felt a touch on my right cheek and also on my left leg below the knee.
On leaving the room a few of the guests explained feeling a static sensation all over which lasted for some time.

Session 2 – Group C

The guests said they would prefer to do glass work rather than Ouija, so we went and sat at another table in the room with just the glass on it, and tried to get spirit to come forward and move the glass. Unfortunately after trying for some time, the glass didn’t move so I suggested trying the writing planchette. Once again, despite our best efforts, there was still no movement. The guests then decided to try the Ouija, and after a while the glass started to move. We connected with a 12-year-old girl, and when we asked for a name the glass moved to the letters A,S, and K. We kept asking questions to try and get some more information, but the glass stopped moving, and it seemed the spirit had gone.
There was some very good table tilting experienced by everyone during this session. There was very gentle movement to start with, and it gradually picked up speed as the table continued to tilt and rock. It took a lot of encouragement to get the table to spin, as if spirit didn’t know how to do it. The table seemed to move fairly cautiously at first, with the movements gradually getting stronger, and eventually the table was spinning quite fast, to the amazement of the guests.

Session 3 – Group A

We tried table tilting first, and as soon as we placed our hands on it, the table started to move. Slowly at first, then it started rocking and spinning. It eventually started walking across the room. We decided to try and ask spirit some questions using the table, so we established our yes and no directions and discovered that we had a male spirit with us, who was in his seventies and used to be a Mayor.
The group then decided to try some glass work, and a male spirit came through who seemed to be connected to guest Steve Downs in some way. We asked spirit to draw his initial on the table with the glass and he drew a D. We soon found out his name was Daniel, in his thirties, had four children, and was Eastern European. He said he was connected to Steve on his grandfather’s side, but Steve couldn’t think where the connection could be, so would have to check on it with other members of his family.

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 17th April 2015
Colchester, Essex

This was our third visit to this magnificent building and we were hoping that the activity that we had encountered on previous visits would return, we were not disappointed.

Each team member chose a room that they wanted to work in for the night, I chose the flat above the Moot Hall to hold séances.

All sessions my groups were joined by Christopher, a RAF airman, about 5’9” and of slim build, aged in his early 30s but looked older due to effects of war.

The first group we were also joined Daisy, a local farmer’s daughter from 1400s. Daisy was aged in her early 20s and wore a white dress and something that looked like hessian tied together around her feet for shoes.

On asking for the spirit to interact with us the first group had their arms and legs moved, many a time people’s arms were twisted and some of the group were pulled by their hands to the floor. One or two of the people on the floor were unable to get up. They said that it felt as if someone was sitting on them or holding them down.

After moving into another room someone in the group thought that another person had walked past the outside of the window. Bearing in mind we were on the top floor of the building this seemed unlikely!

Throughout this session many people felt cold air blown across their face and odd noises which when I asked where the noises came from everyone could not agree on a location.

The second group also felt the touches of Christopher but they were nothing like the activity experienced by the first group, this was mainly due to the fact that people in the group didn’t encourage or ask the spirits to do anything.

The third group had much more activity with people’s arms being moved, being pushed and swayed plus some of the guests were also pulled down towards the floor. Although this time no-one was held down on the floor but the guests could still feel the pressure.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with many guests having a paranormal experience or something happen to them which they could not explain.

We as a team look forward to returning later in the year for another investigation
