Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt – 28-3-2014

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt 28th March 2014
Sevenoaks, Kent

The walk up to the hill fort is always an interesting one and very physically demanding as it is very steep in places and the large two foot high steps don’t help. Everyone is always glad when they reach the top!

At the top it is just a small rise into the fort as the escarpment is the hardest but then as a Fort this is what made its position important.

At our first stop, which is a simple ‘T’ junction sometimes this is very active, however on this occasion it was mildly active with some strange noises being heard by everyone, but every time one of these noises was heard it was always behind me and I kept moving around so that I could hear the latest noise. Very frustrating but the noises sounded similar to someone approaching.

In this area the guests all had an electronic device and the communicators were very active , the EMF KII meters not so active and only one or two spikes were seen on these, but only when no-one was purposely looking at them!

At various times mumbling or voices could be heard but each time the actual direction could not be established.

There was a spirit with us who was in the Armed Forces as he was wearing a grey Great Coat, he was also holding a rolled up do lead, but I didn’t see or sense a dog with him. There was also a young female spirit, but she wouldn’t really communicate with us.

I set up the laser grid in this spot to try to see if the direction of the noises would correspond to something being seen, but once this was set up the noises stopped, as did the communication from the spirits.

From here we moved on to my favourite part of the wood, this is an area which so much has happened on previous investigations and I was hopeful that something visual would happen again since we were a small group.

I set up the laser grid on top of a bridleway post and pointed it uphill. Two military (Army) soldier spirits were around us, neither liked me, probably because of my passiveness nature but nevertheless wanted their presence to be felt and seen.

I also turned on my Spirit Box (a device that scans the FM radio band in reverse at 100ms) but unfortunately and probably due to the weather this seemed to pick up a lot more radio than I have experienced before and after asking several questions and not hearing anything but normal radio signals decided to turn it off. Whilst I was trying to turn it off one guest saw a white mist pass from the right to the left further down the path and asked me if I had a torch on at the time. Which I didn’t and neither did the people further down the path.

Whilst we were both standing in the dark we both heard footsteps approaching us from the path we had just walked down and then an icy cold blast which felt like someone had just opened a freezer in front of us. Stepping away from this particular spot it was comfortable and relatively warm but as soon as either of us walked closer to a particular spot we could both feel the coldness. There was no wind and the ambient temperature was about 7 degrees Celsius but the really cold spot was closer to freezing temperatures.

I decided to start a séance circle to see if the spirit would be able to move people, which they did almost immediately. Dan (guest) was pushed forwards and mainly pulled backwards and no matter what he tried to do the spirit just kept pulling him back. There was also some light arm movements but this came to an abrupt stop when Stuart noticed some of the lights in the laser grid had suddenly and without any warning just gone out as if something was blocking the light. I decided to close the séance circle so that we could all try to see it and just before I did Dan saw a white mist go from left to right, exactly in the same spot that Nikki had seen it earlier.

Several guests walked down the path to see if they could understand or see why the laser lights had just disappeared but could not, two of the guests walked to the same spot and both came back as they felt vulnerable, and those that stayed behind felt like we were being watched. As we all stood watching the laser grid several times different parts of the grid would fade to nothing and then come back whilst other lights, especially the centre light (which is brighter) would just disappear from view then re-emerge a few minutes later. Given where the grid was pointing the centre light was about 5 feet off the ground so an animal could not have been the cause.

When we moved to the final area near to the pond two spirit energies were near to us, one was a farm hand called Mickey who was in his late 20s and he was not interested in us but more interested in the other spirit who was trying to push Stuart into the pond. Stuart was fighting the movements and ended up having a very sore lower back pain but also he was swaying and moving in a strange circular movement as the spirit tried to push him. Fortunately for Stuart the spirit was unsuccessful!

All in all a great night and some excellent visual unexplainable paranormal occurrences, especially the mists seen in the laser grid and how some of the lights randomly just disappeared from view for no apparent reason. However this particular location has been a successful location on previous ghost hunts for seeing mists and shapes within the laser grid.

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt – 28-6-2013

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt 28th June 2013
Sevenoaks, Kent

This location we don’t often investigate, because the walk to get to the site is a very hard and strenuous uphill climb that takes the best part of 20 mins. However it is usually worth the effort as this was one of the first places that we had success using our laser grids outdoors and all guests saw something they could not explain.

The first session I stopped at a crossroad called five ways and after handing out some of our electronic equipment and explaining its use, the communication devices started to pick up on spirit energies and electronic communication commenced. No KII (EMF) energy was detected at this time.

However lots of guests and me saw shadows and lights within the woods that could not be explained as well as hearing voices and whispers which sounded very close to us.

We were joined by a spirit energy called Michael who was in his early 20s and was interested in Millie (guest) and made his presence known to her. There was also a male teenager spirit energy around us who was with his sister called Jessica, although they did not interact with us, just watched. There was also an old gent in his 70s that seemed to be approaching us, but he never arrived.

Many guests took photos and most had some pictures of orbs and light anomalies.

We moved from here on to another cross road and I set up the laser grid. We didn’t see anything anomalous in the laser grid, although when we stood within the light many guests commented that it felt like someone was watching us from the edge of the wood.

Whilst standing within the lights I saw a male spirit energy called Christopher, aged in his late 30s or early 40s who seemed to be interested in us and I asked for him to touch the guests. After we held out our hands he was able to touch some people’s hands and the guests felt that someone was holding their hand, some also felt tingling sensations, heat and a physical touch. Christopher told me that he had committed suicide after his son died in the 1830s. Some guests felt the child energy.

Other guests that were not standing with the majority of us saw shadows of people moving within the woods and voices that seem to draw them further away from us.

While still on this path I decided to conduct a séance to try to get the spirit to move or touch those guests which hadn’t felt anything. After asking for spirit to move us in some way, our arms were moved gently as well as various forms of pulling sensations, sometimes across the group and sometimes downwards. Sue (guest) said that she could taste a metallic taste, this is usually what blood tastes like. Debbie (guest) also felt her rib cage being twisted, she wasn’t moving but she felt that her ribs were being twisted to the left.

This was an interesting ghost hunt and many gets had a physical paranormal experience as everyone either felt spirit energy touch them or move them in some way.

No EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments were undertaken as the noise from cars on the main road could be clearly heard.

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt 5th April 2013
Sevenoaks, Kent

Oldbury Hill is always an interesting place because whilst it is close to the main road it is also so tranquil once within the confines of the Fort. A few days before this event the team members that were going to be present walked through here in the day to familiarise themselves with the paths. On this day we also found one of the Neolithic caves by accident.

After ascending the rather steep incline into the Fort we made our way to one of the more interesting crossroads.

After handing out some of our ghost hunting equipment to the guests and explaining its use, several large spikes of EMF (Electromagnetic fields) were showing up on our KII meters as well as some communication via that equipment. A guest told me that he could see a male spirit energy approximately late 50s wearing a grey RAF coat tied at the waist with twine. This spirit also had a dog with him, also on a twine or rope lead.

I was also aware of two other male spirit energies, one was about 22 years old and of a stocky build, the other was in his 50s wearing a large brown coat (Jonathon Creek style) and a flat cap.

After experimenting with a laser grid, as in the past this has proved to be very successful at this location, although nothing extraordinary was seen on this occasion, we moved to another part of the woods where activity is usually quite high.

Here I decided to hold a séance as this would be an ideal way to show all the guests that spirit energies were amongst us. I asked for the spirit who was named Alfred and aged in his late 30s to move the arms of the guests and to push people gently. Alfred proceeded to lift the arms of several guests and about three quarters of the guests felt some arm movement, although it took a while as we were a large group. Alfred was also able to push some of the guests, although Kayleigh who was standing on my left received most of the attention and was pushed and pulled throughout the séance.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt where the majority of the guests felt spirit energy move them in some way.

Oldbury Hill Fort – 5-10-2012

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt 5th October 2012
nr Sevenoaks, Kent

Oldbury Hill is a strange place, not least because many do not know that once you climb the escarpment you are in the old fort. Our ghost hunt was hampered by the heavy rain, but we do not cancel a ghost hunt due to rain because most of the time the trees will protect us from the rain.

After making my way to a familiar spot a male energy by the name of Peter came forward, he was about 26 years old and his was wearing what I would describe as peasant clothing. Whilst this energy was around many guests felt as if they were being watched. There was plenty of activity of his presence shown on our KII and communication devices with a couple of people reporting that they had seen shadows move further along the path.

On using the spirit box, Peter was able to use the device to say “Hello” and my name.

Unfortunately due to the rain we could not tell whether the noises that we were hearing were normal for the woods or whether these noises were made by spirit. The same was true of call outs and whistles, although there were some odd noises heard nearby. There was no point undertaking an EVP experiment as this too would have been fruitless because of the sound of the rain.

The second spot was on the edge of the fort, were once again there was high levels of KII EMF activity and good communication via our electronic equipment. I decided that this would be a good place to do a séance as the energies here were the sort of spirit that would move people.

During the séance there was a lot of arm movement and spirit were able to push people, sometimes on demand. The spirit that was responsible was called Jeffery and although he didn’t tell me much his was in his late 50s or early 60s and was a playful character who was more than willing to show the guests that he was near us by moving the guests.

I cannot say that this was an enjoyable ghost hunt, but this is solely due to the weather and the amount of walking at this venue is greater than many of our other outdoor events. This ghost hunt at this location will be repeated but not during the winter when the likelihood of bad weather is high.

Oldbury Hill Fort – 5-11-2011

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Oldbury Hill Fort 5th November

After losing sight of the main path and trekking up the embankment we walked into the woods and stopped at one of the many crossroads as the EMF Metre I was holding was showing high levels of spirit energy. I decided we would hold a séance at this spot.

Within a matter of minutes there were lots of child energies around, one made himself known to me, he was called Simon and was quite tall and about 12-13 years old. He was also skinny and stood about 5’4”. He wore a hessian shirt and what looked to be home-made shoes tied together with twine. This energy made Tony, Steve and Brett (guests) feel very cold. Everyone else heard many footfalls for all directions, but the majority we heard in the direction that we had just walked. When we were walking to this spot I commented to Sean that it felt like we were being followed and he agreed. Also during this séance some guests heard horse hooves and other noises which all sounded like someone creeping about in the woods.

A male energy also made himself known to me and he seemed to be from 1860s, he also gave me the impression that he was a technical man as he held plans and surveys. This energy called himself Peter and he was a strict man. Upon his arrival Steve, Tim and Kerry (guests) all heard footsteps behind them and also some strange lights. Noises we also heard behind Lynn (guest) and Sean that sounded like mumbling and whisperings.

During our EVP experiment some people heard horses hooves again and on playing back the recording two strange knocks we heard after a guest asked their question (this is still being analysed) which no-one heard during the EVP experiment.

After this I set up the laser grid and asked spirit to walk through the grid, the first time this happened the mist seemed to come towards us, much to the amazement of the guests, unfortunately I didn’t see it properly as I was talking to a guest at the time, but I did see the tell end of it. I also noted that no one was smoking at the time. Many shadows we also seen within the grid and guests walked into the grid to see if they could sense anything. However when they had all come back to the group we all saw another mist come from behind us “walk” into the grid and then “evaporate” about half way in the visible light.

From here we moved deeper into the woods and found ourselves standing in the Medieval cart tracks, whilst EMF activity was high here and at one point we all heard some whistling, spirit activity was generally quite low. We decided to split into two smaller groups and make our way back towards the cars.

My group stopped at a small outcrop of stones which was extremely high in spirit energy the EMF Metres was constantly on Red (the highest).

We started a séance here and a female energy called Lily immediately made herself known to me, she was about 40 years old and wore a simple dress, she had long brunette hair, her daughter appeared almost instantly and she had almost white blonde hair. I asked whether they would push the guests and they complied pushing the two Steve’s (guests) backwards, which they found very interesting as they were both facing downhill and this was unnatural, but it was also very forceful and neither of them knew when it was going to happen, this continued for a few minutes. There was also some gentle arm movement between Brett and Kerry and Tim and me. At one point Brett was pushed towards the two Steve’s and he also commented that he felt very relaxed and comfortable. We then moved the circle around just to see what would happen and almost instantly Tim and Kerry (who were now standing where the two Steve’s were previously standing) were pushed backwards and the two Steve’s were now being pushed forwards and backwards.

When I announced that we should be making our way back to the others a great sadness was felt, mainly from the spirits but unusually Brett felt very tearful and at one stage her was physically crying and as he said the spirit seemed reluctant for us to leave. Just as we were about to go Brett felt a touch on his shoulder which surprised him.

I then questioned whether the spirit should not be sent on, as they seemed very sad and I wondered whether they needed help in crossing over. We asked them many questions and they responded by lighting the EMF Metre. But the responses were inconclusive as they wanted to stay and were reluctant to cross over.

We conducted another EVP experiment during which many sounds were heard in the surrounding woodland and all in the direction of where these two energies were standing.

Our walk down the hill from here was uneventful and we were not too far from the other group.

A very enjoyable evening with a lot of physical activity and definitely a very interesting place which we intend to return to when the weather warms up.
