Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt 28th March 2014
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.
