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.

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.

Fort Amherst – 20th May 2016 – Steve

Friday, July 8th, 2016

Fort Amherst ghost hunt 20th May 2016
Chatham, Kent


Fort Amherst is one of our favourite venues as there is never a dull moment during the event. It is also one of the spookiest as long tunnels and underground rooms often are.

During the séance sessions that I held we were joined by a spirit called Christopher who was aged in his late 30s and an Army Sergeant from the Second World War era.

Whilst Christopher was able to push and manipulate people we also heard a lot of strange noises, doors banging and footsteps. This was all very odd as there wasn’t a slight breeze outside let alone a strong wind to slam a door.

During the final séance session many of the group, including me had numb or tingling toes. What this meant or what it was supposed to mean is unknown, maybe we’ll find out on a return visit to Fort Amherst later this year.

This was another excellent ghost hunt at the Fort with lots of paranormal activity felt and experienced by the guests.

Explosion Museum – 14th May 2016 – Steve

Explosion Museum ghost hunt 14th May 2016
Gosport, Hampshire


As a team we love visiting this venue, because we have so much space and buildings for us and our guests to investigate, because we have not used all the buildings for all the activities that we undertake yet.

Being that the group was a small group (which is normal in the summer months) we didn’t split the group and instead each team member held their session with everyone present.

The first session was my séance session, which I chose to hold in a building that I have used before; C Mag, an old magazine room (for storing explosives).

A male spirit by the name of Roger joined us, he was aged in his late 30s or early 40s and an older gent aged in his late 50s who was a Navy Officer and in uniform.

Both these spirits were able to push people and manipulate us with a little force, one guest spent most of the session being pushed forwards or pulled backwards. At one point just about everyone had been pushed to the floor.

The second session was a joint table tilting and Ouija board session. Both activities took a while before anything useful was encountered and the table tilting eventually got going after a lot of encouragement. There is an excerpt of this at

On the Ouija board we eventually had some contact with a slave or a person who was forced to work and a young boy called Timothy who was 15 or 16 years old and also working at Priddy’s Hard. (now the site of the Explosion Museum)

The third session we let the guests loose with our gadgets in the old Admin building, this is a popular building for this activity as the building is big enough to allow the guests to roam from room to room and they may encounter different spirits in different parts of the building.

The fourth session was a Human Pendulum session in the Grand Magazine where guests were able to ask spirit questions and feel the spirit move them.

After this session all guests were able to explore the buildings and carry out their own ghost hunt. During this time guests could borrow our ghost hunting equipment.

This was another excellent ghost hunt with some good personal paranormal evidence encountered by the guests in various parts of the site using a whole manner of different activities. We look forward to our return in August.

Rye Castle – 23rd April 2016 – Steve

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

Rye Castle ghost hunt 23rd April 2016
Rye, East Sussex


Rye Castle is a small venue which is why there are only a small amount of guests allowed for the ghost hunt, however on this evening a number of guests failed to turn up so the group was smaller than previous ghost hunts. This meant that the ghost hunt was more intimate for those who were present and the personal evidence that these guests encountered was brilliant.

We kept all the guests together since the group was about half the size it should have been and held three sessions.

The first session was a tech and gadget session in the main Keep where the guests we able to get basic yes and no answers to their questions as well as experiencing strange energy spikes on our meters.

The second session was a table tilting session in which we had some movement on the table and the third session was a séance session where we were joined by a male spirit aged in his 50s from the 1890s. He was called Anthony Dwight and he was a well-dressed gentlemen wearing a smart pin striped suit and had a pocket watch.

Anthony was able to move the majority of the guests by their arms and pull various people by their arms to the floor, which was all very amusing to us.

During the free session (when guests can venture off on their own) guests were coming back to us in the base room after being upstairs in the Keep or in the Woman’s Tower and reporting that something unusual happened to them. On all occasions they had thought there was someone else in the room with them, when in fact they had all been on their own (in pairs). One pair of guests reported that first they thought someone spoke to the them and then they heard the “woosh” of a lady’s dress as it passed them by.

All in all, a very interesting ghost hunt and we look forward to our return in September 2016.

Old Beneficiary School – 20th February 2016 – Steve

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Old Beneficiary School ghost hunt 20th February 2016
Portsmouth, Hampshire


This is an unusual building as we often have activity but not in relation to the building or its past use. This particular evening was no different. I was in the main theatre, the upstairs room for all my sessions.

The first group were joined by a Man who was reluctant to say anything, he wore a schoolboy type cap and was aged roughly in his early 30s. He seemed to be dressed in clothing associated with a summer party and he gave me the impression that he had something to do with importing fine spices into the country. There was also a woman called Grace who said that she washed the floors when this building was a school in 1890s. When we were near the back of the room there was a spirit here called Daniel who was a recent spirit, someone who had passed away recently, although he gave the year as 2006 and he took his own life in sad circumstances. He said he lived locally.

During the séance we experienced lots of movement, including arm movement, footfalls, noises and squeaks that could not be explained.

The second group once again experienced some movement in the séance, although not as much as the first group. Although we did experience some of the strange noises and footfalls like the first group.

The third group didn’t experience any movement at all, nor did we hear any odd noises.

We look forward to returning later in the year

Fort Borstal – 30th October 2015 – Steve

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 30th October 2015
Rochester, Kent


The séance sessions we were joined by a spirit called Antony (Tony) who was a Marine, aged in his early 30s and wore glasses for reading.

Tony was able to poke people and make some people including me get very hot during the séance. He was also able to move people, mostly by their arms, but also pushing and pulling the guests backwards. Many people experienced arm movement then a very heavy force would be applied to their shoulders which forced each person down towards the floor.

A number of times guests would be pushed and pulled towards the corners of the room and sometimes from opposite corners. This resulting in many people being tangled and twisted, sometime in painful or unusual positions that we could not figure out how to untangle ourselves. This was a very strange experience which wasn’t filmed on this particular night.

Odd smells were smelt by various people including myself, these smells were; pepper, sweet tobacco and other strange and unusual smells.

During a total darkness experiment people felt a spirit amongst us, some could see the outline of a person whilst others heard a young female voice, unfortunately whilst we heard the voice we couldn’t understand what was said.

This was an enjoyable ghost hunt with everyone experiencing paranormal activity.

Nothe Fort – 16th January 2016 – Steve

Nothe Fort ghost hunt 16th January 2016
Weymouth, Dorset


As a team we were really looking forward to this event as it has been a couple of years since we had been able to hold a ghost hunt at this huge Fort. The problem was that the fort could never find staff who were willing to work at the unsociable time required for a ghost hunt.

I chose a magazine room for my sessions

My first session we were joined by Toby a spirit from 1630s aged in his late 30s and Cecil, a Second World War soldier. Both spirits were able to manipulate people and move them in some way. During this time, we also heard some unexplained noises.

The second group also felt the presence of Cecil and some movement was felt by some guests.

The third group experienced lots of movement, most of it on command as well as strange horse related smells, many of which were not pleasant.

The fourth group we were joined by a Second World War Captain who didn’t give his name, although he was stationed in Weymouth during the war. This spirit was able to move everyone with ease, whether they wanted to be moved or not.

Many people in all groups felt hot and cold spots and heard strange noises, although this Fort is on a headland and some of these noises could have been caused by the wind, as the early part of the night was windy. It became still as the night progressed.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with all groups experiencing paranormal activity but unfortunately the Fort Management have cancelled all future events from all ghost hunting groups and companies based on an uneducated, ill-informed and close-minded opinion of the world of ghost hunting. Probably acquired from something the committee members watched on television, which is made for entertainment purposes. Not the real world of ghost hunting.

Fort Amherst – 29th January 2016 – Steve

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Fort Amherst ghost hunt 29th January 2016
Chatham, Kent


For this event I chose the Guardhouse for all my sessions

The first group experienced Thomas (spirit) downstairs who pushed some of the guests, upstairs there was a Captain and a Sergeant who seemed to only make noises (footsteps) upstairs when we were downstairs. Odd smells were smelt by many including some very unpleasant ones. Hot and cold spots were also detected but it was a windy cold night in Chatham.

The second group didn’t feel the same spirit energy as the first group, mainly because no one really asked for anything or even spoke. There were a few odd smells again but they were not as strong as the first group session.

The third group experienced lots of movement in the séance including pushing and pulling of different people and everyone experienced their arms being moved in some way or spirit pushing down on their shoulders. There were two spirits with us at the time George; a key holder to the building and Thomas who I met with the first group who said that he wanted to talk, although I have no idea what was meant by this statement as he didn’t say anything.

This was another excellent ghost hunt and as ever we look forward to returning later in the year.

Landguard Fort – 6th November 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Landguard Fort ghost hunt 6th November 2015
Felixstowe, Suffolk


Area: Guard House
Landguard Fort is one of my favourite venues, the fort is vast, with many areas to investigate, and the presence of spirits always felt around us.  When I initially arrived I walked around, and when entering into the ground floor tunnel complex I immediately felt the presence of spirit walking with me.

I chose to work in the Guard House, doing the Human Pendulum.  With my first group we had a male spirit connected to this area, and from the 1400’s.  He was from Finland and had travelled here with his family.  His parents were smugglers and he had learnt the trade from them, including how to build his own boat.  He had met a British lady, married her and had two children.  However, they had all died at sea.  They had been selling their produce on the seas, which consisted of food and clothes bought from the mainland, when other smugglers had wanted to take his wife, and they had all perished.  The spirit gave his name of Bob, he was very tall, over 6′, and had blond hair and blue eyes.  As the guests had been here before, and encountered a male spirit in the shower room, they wanted to investigate there, so off we went.  Again we did the human pendulum, and although no male spirit was there, a female spirit they had met before joined us. She was a foreign lady, and had not committed suicide as the guests previously thought, but in fact had been pushed.  She had been seen by one of the guests before in a different room, and she wanted us to go there now, which we did.  Whilst standing in that area quietly we all heard a noise like tapping metal.  On checking, this noise could have come from pipes on the ceiling being tapped, or a chair in the next room.  Then asking for the noise again we all heard a bang on the wooden door.
With my next group, whilst communicating to spirit with the human pendulum, a female spirit joined us.  She said she was the foreign lady from earlier, and again she was pushed.  She said her name was Maria.  The next spirit that came through was female and her friend.  However, when asking a little more about them, it seemed they were not connected to the fort or the area, and both passed within the last five years, and wanted to go the light.  I had some guests in the group that were sensitive to spirit and were feeling the same, so with their help we invited the two female spirits to pass over to the light.  However, with the communication starting again with spirit, we soon realised Maria had gone over, but her friend hadn’t.  After communicating with her for a short while we helped her pass over too.  Jules (guest) could feel someone touching her shoulder, who we believed to be the male spirit that had pushed the female spirit(s).  He didn’t want to go to the light.  Starting the pendulum again, Paula (guest) to my right was still feeling incredibly upset.  Although being sensitive to spirit, she had not been able to understand her experiences, and didn’t know why she kept seeing a young girl sitting on the floor, hugging her legs, upset and not looking up.  Paula was also aware of a nun with this girl too.  We decided to communicate with the girl first before offering to help send her over.  She was in her 20’s, was in prison for doing wrong, and had starved to death.

The nun had been her friend at the convent.  The girl’s name was Josephine, and Paula could see her now looking up, and feeling happy with us trying to help her.  So we then helped Josephine go to the light, however whilst doing this we all heard a loud female whistle.

With my last group the first spirit was male who had worked here during WW2, he was an engineer who had maintained the guns.  As we had guns in the room with us, three by the door, he confirmed he had maintained the first and third one.  The second spirit was a female who had worked at the fort during WW2 as a nurse.  She had passed of old age between 1950 – 2000.  She had been married but no children, she had miscarried more than once.  She was kind enough to show me what she looked like, auburn curly hair, wearing a blue and white floral dress, medium build and possibly around 5’6″ tall.  She was riding a bicycle with a basket on the front, through open fields/countryside in Suffolk.  She was from Ipswich.  She loved coming to the fort in spirit, and liked one of the male workers here.  That person has seen and felt her here.  She gave us her name as Susan, and asked the guests to find her in the shower area.  We then had a male spirit come through, from WW1 and connected to the fort.  He had fought in the Battle of the Somme, and had died there.  Whilst talking to this spirit we all heard a female noise/giggle.
We then finished that session by all the using the dowsing rods and pendulums I had brought, and with Lynn (guest) able to use the rods very well, I took the guests to the shower area to continue communicating with Susan.  I left them there, and later they told me that after talking to Susan for a while they moved down the tunnel to the next room, but returned when they heard a lot of noise coming from that area.  On looking they saw the plastic toy rat that had been hanging on the wall/shelf was now on the floor in the next room.
Fantastic night, with such lovely guests, and all having some amazing experiences!
