Fort Borstal – 12th November 2016 – Kym

Monday, January 23rd, 2017

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 12th November 2016
Rochester, Kent

Very atmospheric tonight with low mist on this dark night, making the fort look just that little bit more spooky.  We started with our first groups with Sean doing Kit in the Counterscarp Gallery, and myself doing Ouija and Glass Work in the Cartridge Store.  In Sean’s sessions they noticed a blue halo around the Edi Meter, and white flashes in the corner of a room, and the pendulums were very active with guests enjoying how fast they were rotating, and changing direction when requesting.  In my first sessions with glass work and ouija we spoke to a female aged over 50 in the 1940′ or 1960’s, did not like men, had possibly been raped and had a child.  She had not passed over as she still visits her daughter and grand-children.  She lived in Rochester when alive.  Her name was Ellie (short for Eleanor) and had committed suicide here at the fort.  We were feeling like we were being touched, and hearing unexplained noises.  We did finish with a glass work session near the entrance, and the spirit with us said he was Sergeant Andrews.  His energy was incredibly strong and said he would join us later.

With our next sessions Sean was doing Table Tipping in the Caponier, and I was in the Officers Mess doing a Séance Circle and Human Pendulum.  In Sean’s sessions the Table Tipping was incredible with the table tipping, spinning and walking around the room.  They did have an odd smell of fruit, saw a mist and heard a scurry on the floor – no animals located!  They did also tap on the table and heard taps back twice.  With myself we had some movement in the séance circle’s, and felt coldness and tingles on our hands when being moved,  but had more results from the pendulums.  We had Sergeant Andrews with us again, he had been killed in battle on the Somme by a German soldier, and did not have a grave.  He was not married and had no children.  He liked both men and women.  We also had the spirit of a woman who had worked at the fort as a chef.  She had been hurt by Sgt Andrews, and had hung herself.  We asked if she had a message for us – yes – “Be aware of men!”

Upnor Castle – 31st October 2015 – Steve

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Upnor Castle ghost hunt 31st October 2015
Rochester, Kent

upnor-castle

This was our highlight of the year, the Halloween event at a venue that doesn’t get investigated very often. The last ghost hunt held here was 6 years ago.

The event was slightly different than our usual ghost hunts because we could not let people explore the venue by themselves as the staff wanted to put the lights on every time someone wanted to move around the site. Therefore, we held 6 different sessions with all members of the GHE team holding a session.

My séance sessions were in the 2nd set of sessions in the Gatehouse. All session we had spirit join us and all sessions there was some movement from the spirit touching people, pushing them and raising their arms but the first group and the third group had the better paranormal experience with the majority of people touched, pushed and moved.

The spirits responsible were a Priest with the first group, who was not happy with us and tried to pull people apart to break the circle. When that didn’t work he pushed people to the floor and kept them there. Many guests could smell a fire or burning ropes. This was confirmed by the staff that this building had suffered from a fire in its past.

The other spirit who was with us was called Chris, he was an engineer aged in his late 50s and from 1810 period of time. He was a clock engineer and spent time repairing clocks. Whether he worked on the one at Upnor remains unanswered.

This was a great ghost hunt with all the guests having a paranormal encounter and lots of paranormal activity was experienced by all those who took part.

We hope to return to this venue in the near future

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 13th November 2015
Rochester, Kent

fort-borstal-front

This event was a little different since there were a small amount of guests we did not spilt the group and instead everybody participated in every activity.

The first activity was a Human Pendulum, followed by a Table tilting and Ouija board session and finally my session; a séance

We were joined by a well-built chap who did not give his name. He was able to push and twist people as well as lift and move their arms on command. Some people were pushed and pulled to the floor and against the walls.

Fort Borstal – 30th October 2015 – Steve

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 30th October 2015
Rochester, Kent

fort-borstal-front

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.

Fort Borstal – 17th October 2015 – Steve

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 17th October 2015
Rochester, Kent

fort-borstal-front

All guests participated in the séance sessions with me in the Counterscarp Galleries.

The first group experienced lots of movement and everyone’s hands touched the floor several times as well as being twisted.

The spirit that was responsible for this was a First World War soldier that I have met before at the fort called Captain Daniel Bedford.

At the end of the session we all heard music that sounded like it was coming from within the counterscarp gallery.

The second group also experienced gentle arm movement, pushing and gentle swaying sensations.

The third group had lots of activity which started with gentle pushing and pulling back and swaying. Jazz (guest) was reluctant to feel spirit after other guests touched his chest with their hands so I moved beside them and Jazz and Gaya were moved gently and twirled. Toward the end of the session Jazz got touched on the back, like a poke.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with everyone having a paranormal experience.

Upnor Castle – 31st October 2015 (Louise)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Upnor Castle Halloween ghost hunt 31st October 2015
Rochester, Kent.

Area: North Tower
Equipment: Tables for table tipping

Upon arrival we were shown around the Castle. It was decided that I worked in the North Tower top floor as I felt this area to be really active.

Session 1 – Group B
I started the session by splitting the group in to two smaller groups so we had people on both tables. Initially none of the tables moved. I called out to spirit if they would come and move the tables in some way. Both tables then started gently rocking from side to side. Jeff (guest) encouraged spirit to see if they cold move the table in some other way. After a while the table tipped up on to two legs and held this position for some time. With more encouragement from Julie (guest) the table then tipped on to one leg and started to spin round in a clockwise direction. Meanwhile the guests on the other table had also got their table to spin and carry out random movements. It was then decided that we ask spirit to communicate through the table by tipping it right for a yes answer and left for a no answer. Through the tables we started talking to two male spirits who confirmed they were both soldiers. They went on to tell us that they didn’t get on together and one was angry with the other for a dispute that happened during their time at war.

Session 2 – Group C
This group immediately arranged themselves into two smaller groups so we had an equal number of people around each table. I asked spirit to step forward and start to move the tables for me please. At this point both of the tables started to gently rock from side to side. I was not on any of the tables at this time and the guests could not believe what was happening. This group was full of encouragement and laughter which made spirit move both of the tables very well. Both tables together at the same time both tipped up on to two legs and held their positions for some time. With encouragement from myself and the guests both tables then just started carrying out random movements and spinning very fast making it hard for the guests to keep up with the speed. One of the tables then went on to walk towards the door much to the guest’s amazement.

Session 3 – Group A
Again I asked the guests to split up so an equal amount of people were on each table. I asked spirit to step forward and once again move the tables. Initially none of the tables moved. Then without warning one of the tables just tilted to the side very fast and held this position. Encouragement from the group asking spirit if they could move the table for them in some other way, it suddenly tipped up on to one leg and spun round in a clockwise direction very fast. Some of the guests were not convinced that someone in the group was moving the table, so I asked each guests just to lightly put one finger on the table and still encourage spirit to move the table. To their amazement the table again started to spin even with us all just having one finger on the table.  On the other table the guests had managed to encourage spirit also to move their table to which it has spun round and started walking off towards the door.

This event was very interesting as it was our first visit to Upnor Castle. I was very happy with the evidence that we got from the sessions and I can’t wait to visit this venue again

Fort Borstal – 13th November 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 13th November 2015
Rochester, Kent

fort-borstal-front

With my group tonight I was doing the Human Pendulum, and the first spirit that joined us was a female spirit who had worked here at the fort in the Second World War.  Her husband was also stationed here, who was with her in spirit.  They had both passed away from old age.

The next spirit that joined us was a male friend of the previous female spirit, and he shared some details of his life here at the fort.

The final spirit that joined us was a female, however had wanted to be a man, to give her the opportunity for better employment.  She initially said she had joined the marines, but also said yes to being in the navy and a fisherman.  She said she was from the 1700’s and had passed before she was twenty.  The guest standing in the middle was Anita, and when we stopped she had been hearing an old war song in her head, with the name Polly in it.  To myself and Louise’s (team) surprise we had both had the name Polly in our head throughout.  Was this the name of the spirit, or did she just like singing that song.  We asked the spirit to join us in the Ouija session, so we could find out some more details about her.

We also wanted to try an experiment, I wrote a word in my notepad, and asked spirit to copy this word on the Ouija when asked.  This word was not shown to anyone.  However, when we did ask spirit to copy this word later on, with the spirits confirming they knew the word, they were unable to copy it on the Ouija until we had asked several times, and re-shown the word to spirit.

Also, throughout the pendulum session we were all hearing noises and footsteps around us, and some guests felt like they were being touched.

Upnor Castle – 31st October 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Upnor Castle ghost hunt 31st October 2015
Rochester, Kent.

The team had all been looking forward to this event most of the year – the last time I had been to Upnor Castle was nearly 10 years ago on a similar paranormal night.  It had not been visited since by any other paranormal group.  When we arrived, and on chatting to the staff, the spirit activity had increased considerably in the last week – were the spirits excited about our visit as much as us?
I started the night with Kerry in the tunnel doing a human pendulum.  The first spirit that came through was male, John, a British soldier and was murdered here in the 1600’s.  His brother was Peter, and later his mother Jane joined us.
With my second group again we had the spirit of John, but different from before.  Although he was a British soldier, he had died from typhoid.  We also had the spirit of a Dutch soldier who was captured and kept here as a prisoner.  He was a surgeon and operated on the Dutch prisoners.  When he died he was thrown in the River Medway.  He had fell in love with a Dutch woman here, however she had married a British soldier, but was murdered by her husband.
With the last group, who were all friends, several spirits came through but were mostly connected to the guests.

In the second half of the evening I was working in the Barracks Building, with the assistance of Wayne.  We were using dowsing rods and pendulums to communicate with the spirits.  The staff were keen to stay with us as this is where they had been experiencing lots of different things in the last week.  On entering the building and walking up the stairs, Wayne felt a could touch to his neck, which he also felt in the corner of the far upstairs room.  When using his pendulum to communicate with the spirit, it was a female energy here that had touched him.  I was with Sarah (staff) and were talking to a male spirit using dowsing rods.  He was a British Officer aged 25.  Sarah wanted to know his name, so we both asked spirit to try telling us.  I had the name Terry – short for Terrence – Sarah had the name Edward.  Spirit confirmed his name was Edward Terrence.  Edward also confirmed the experiences Sarah had had were all from him.  Also another member of staff had seen a spirit previously, had quickly drawn a sketch of what she had seen, and Edward confirmed that was him.  Whilst someone was sitting in a chair in the shop downstairs, she felt coldness on her lap as if someone was sitting there.  Sarah also whilst standing on a trap door at the top of stairs, felt it try and lift up under her feet.  On checking we could see it was impossible to lift up.  I stood there and twice I felt a vibration under my foot when nobody else was moving.  We could feel coldness in front of us too.  Wayne then went to get his Rem pod and placed it on the trap door, and several times it went off.  We tried to de-bunk it by moving/running on the stairs, opening/closing the door downstairs, but each time you had to do it with force to set the rem pod off, which we know no-one had done at that time.
An amazing night at Upnor Castle – can’t wait to return!

Fort Borstal – 30th October 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 30th October 2015
Rochester, Kent.

fort-borstal-front

Area: Caponier
Equipment: Rods, Pendulums, Ghost Pro, KII, SB7, Ovilus III, Mel Meter
Once everyone knew how to use the rods & pendulums (some were familiar to the equipment), we all communicated with the spirits there, of which were several.  We were feeling coldness around us, and felt like we were being touched too.  We also heard a loud male breath near us.  We then used the rest of the equipment, and felt there was a spirit in the corridor.  Every now and again he would come into the room, then venture back out to the corridor.  The Mel Meter showed the temp to be 13 degrees, and 0.4 to 0.5 mg.  We also had various words on the Ovilus, but nothing on the SB7.  With the second group again we had spirit communication using all the equipment.  On the Ovilus we had the following words: general – pat – fly – Africa – disaster.  Were we talking to the pilot that had come down here at the fort.  With the controlled sessions over I joined most of the guests and Trudi (team) back in the caponier doing Ouija and table tipping.  Both were very active, with the guests amazed by what they were able to experience.

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 18th July 2015

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 18th July 2015
Rochester, Kent

This event was a little different than our normal events because we had a group solely for our VIP Privilege guests (http://www.ghosthuntevents.co.uk/vip.php)

The VIP’s started with me first as I held a séance in the Caponier. I have started to move the team around into different areas at this Fort because too often we as team members stick to certain or favourite rooms, so on events that we visit regularly the team will generally be working in different areas than previous times.

During the séances in the Caponier we were joined by two male spirits, one called Cecil who was stationed here in the Second World War as a gunner with the Territorial Army, City of Rochester battalion. Their job was to man the anti-aircraft guns at the Fort and help protect Chatham Docks. The other spirit was called Philip and he was a British pilot who crash landed between Fort Borstal and the now non-existent Fort Bridgewood. Philip did not die from his injuries although he suffered terrible burns to his left side.

During the séances guests were moved by their arms around the room, pulled to the floor, pushed against the walls and had their arms raised as high as they could stretch. Many people also felt that they were swaying although they did not notice at first and it took the people standing next to them to tell them. Cold spots that moved around the room were common, although this particular room is open to the elements (there is no door) but it was warmer outside than inside.

After we finished our controlled sessions guests were allowed to venture off on their own to hold their own ghost hunt and to use our equipment to do so. Many guests had strange and paranormal occurrences whilst investigating on their own.

All in all this was an excellent ghost hunt and the VIP’s were asked what they enjoyed about the night, these videos are on our YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqWQMrZeI7VRO5B3eXYak5UiQTRDsxxTU

There are also videos from this event which can be watched at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqWQMrZeI7VRKmh9-tC08BWVcTeIMsv9u
