Shire Hall – 24th January 2015

Shire Hall ghost hunt 24th January 2015
Hereford, Herefordshire

This was the second time that we have visited this venue, we would like to visit more frequently but Hereford is a four hour drive for us.

I held all three of my sessions in the cellar and every time we started with a séance. Spirit were quiet playful and a little mischievous, especially with a group of all girls. The male spirits had fun making them feel uncomfortable. This resulted in the first group being quite a lot more scared that subsequent groups but also this group had far more experiences and sensations with about half of the group feeling feint, one girl had to sit down as she virtually collapsed. All groups though felt the sensations of their arms being moved and being pushed, pulled, swayed and rocked by unseen hands.

I was joined on more than one occasion by two spirits, one called Tony (Antony) who was an old fashioned Bobby (Policeman) from the 1880’s. The other was a farmer type of person, probably a labourer although he never said anything apart from that he worked with pigs. He gave no name. Both these spirits joined me on every session in the cellar although they took turns trying to affect the guests.

Every group to the cellar saw shadows or lights that they could not explain. This cellar had windows at one end although this was an L shape corridor and the lights from outside did not shine through the main corridor, yet several guests saw shadows (as if someone walked across the corridor) and lights which looked like miniature shooting stars according to the people that saw them.

Two groups (the first two) both smelt something that they described as being disgusting, rotting meat was one description the other of decaying and dampness. Several people also smelt a sulphuric smell (rotten eggs) however this was not something that affected everyone as I and the people either side of me on both occasions smelt nothing out of the ordinary.

This was an excellent ghost hunt as all guests had some paranormal occurrences in different parts of the building. Many enjoyed the fact that after we had finished our controlled sessions we allowed the guests to wander around the building of their own accord whilst they held their own style ghost hunt and we also allowed them to borrow our equipment during this time.

Hopefully we will return next year

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt – 31-5-2014

Thursday, June 26th, 2014

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 31st May 2014
Colchester, Essex

This was our third visit to the Red Lion Hotel in 2014 and with different team members attending I was personally hoping for a different ghost hunt. My sessions however were much the same but to be honest I wasn’t expecting a change.

The cellar itself doesn’t change however the spirit that we have encountered here all seem to be from a particular period in history, this I find odd and unusual because there should be no reason for this.

The first group to the cellar we met a male spirit called George who was from the 1920s, very well dressed gentleman about 5’9” and aged in his 30s. Asking George to touch and move guests resulted in some very quick and unusual movements felt by the guests. Many of the guests were pushed in a circular motion or rocked gently from side to side. Some people were pushed down towards the floor and two guests found that their limbs didn’t work as expected, with one guest unable to move her knees and the other being made to lift one of her feet. This proved very funny with the people who weren’t being affected!

During the séance we all heard a number of noises that sounded unusual or unexplainable, considering I have held about twenty ghost hunts at the Red Lion Hotel, I know what most of the “normal” sounds are and what causes them. This sound however was different, it sounded very similar to someone opening a can of carbonated drink within the same room as us or discharging an old fashioned soda bottle. The soda bottle was more likely because the cellar had a few old bottles which were being sent for recycling, these old soda bottles had been in the cellar for many years, one of the members of staff said that they were in the cellar when they started working at the hotel, 16 years ago, was the spirit letting us know he was there by manipulating these?

The second group to the cellar we were joined by Michael a spirit who was 71 years old and someone that I have seen on several occasions, he is a very jovial character and likes to “play” but only with the right people. Unfortunately this group wasn’t the right group of people for this activity and whilst some people felt their arms being moved, others didn’t.

The third group to the cellar were the right people for Michael to play with and we were joined by Annabel who was wearing a Georgian style dress. Annabel was in her 20s. Plus George the spirit the first group met also joined us. Between the three spirits, although it was mostly Michael and George the guests were pushed, and pulled backwards, swayed and rocked as well as their arms being lifted and moved, mostly on command and several times the sensation and the feeling of being pulled down to the floor by our arms and hands.

This was another excellent ghost hunt with the majority of the guests having some form of paranormal encounter which they thoroughly enjoyed but couldn’t necessarily explain.

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 31-8-2013

Wednesday, October 23rd, 2013

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 31st August 2013
Rochester. Kent

Fort Borstal is a favourite location of so many of the GHE team and since every time we return to this venue similar yet different paranormal elements occur. We never really know what to expect!

On this particular evening we only split the group into two smaller groups, normally we would split the whole group into three but many of the GHE team were away on holiday. Which left the guests more free time to explore the Fort after our controlled sessions.

As ever, I chose the counterscarp galleries for my sessions, not least because similar paranormal activity happens within this tunnel complex and it is also the one area of the fort where no outside noise can infiltrate. It is also one of the most interesting areas of the fort.

The first group to this area the group apprehensively wandered down the long tunnel to the end rooms. We started a séance circle and after explaining what may happen (based on what has happened on previous ghost hunt) one male spirit energy approached the group. This particular spirit I have seen and felt many times at the Fort, so have other guests.

His name is Captain Daniel Bedford and he would have been quite a strict person, but he is able to easily touch and move people. After asking for him to gentle touch and move people in some way, the guest to my right felt her arms starting to lift and at the time she wondered whether it was me moving her arms. I then was able to prove beyond any doubt that it was in fact Captain Daniel who was moving our arms. The guest in question then became silent and was testing both me & Captain Daniel and asked for her arms to be moved in various ways, all in her head so that I could not hear what she asked for.

I asked Daniel to move around the circle and do this to other people, but unfortunately he was unable to do this unless I moved around the circle, which I did twice so that others could feel this strange sensation. After several guests felt their arms moving and asking for their arms to be moved in a particular way by Daniel we ended the séance and the guests started to wander throughout the counterscarp gallery with some of our electronic ghost hunting equipment. Many guests were able to have meaningful answers to their question via this equipment and those that held our KII (EMF) meters noticed a correlation between the high levels shown on the meters and the amount of communication that followed.

The second group to the counterscarp galleries were not as nervous as the first group, probably because they had just encountered spirit in another part of the Fort and had become accustomed to the dark and not quite so scared of the dark.

Captain Daniel was still present and he was able to do much the same to many of the guest’s arms, but this time I did not have to move around the circle, he was able to move people of his own free will. Daniel was also able to do more with this group of people and instead of just lifting and manipulating people’s arms he was able to push some people forwards and rock them backwards as well. Some guests were also swayed and gently rocked from side to side.

After we finished the séance, once again the guests wandered around the counterscarp galleries with our ghost hunting equipment and many guests had their questions answered by Capt. Daniel.

After the controlled sessions we always allow the guests to wander around this Fort freely to visit other areas of the Fort that we didn’t investigate during the ghost hunt. I joined two guests who were hopeful that they would both have some interesting evidence. For this part of the night I escorted them to an area which we don’t often use as part of the ghost hunt because it is extremely dangerous to get to and is a very small area; The World War Two command post.

Here there was a spirit called Timothy who tried to touch both guests and move them but it took a long time before they felt his energy.

Whilst here I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. Out of the six questions there were four answers, but unfortunately two of those we couldn’t decipher or understand what Timothy had said. The other two can be heard at:-


Once again an interesting ghost hunt and one which many guests were able to experience first-hand physical paranormal activity.

Rye Castle ghost hunt – 20-7-2013

Rye Castle Ypres Tower ghost hunt 20th July 2013
Rye, East Sussex

This was the first ghost hunt that we held at Rye Castle since the building work has been completed. The location has always been one of our favourites since activity has often been strange and unexplainable but this ghost hunt was exceptionally active.

My group started on the first floor of the Keep and within a matter of minutes after everyone had settled down we were joined by a male spirit energy called Marquis de Rocforte, who was French and aged in his mid-50s wearing a purple jacket (three quarter length) with brass buttons, white shirt, white stockings and black shoes with buckles, he also wore a hat similar to an Admiral Bicorn Hat. He looked to be an important person. We have since found out that this uniform would have been worn in the Napoleonic era by “Payeur Général de la Garde”.

There were also two children aged about 10 years old playing noughts and crosses in one of the cells.

Levels of KII (EMF – Electro Magnetic Fields) were also very high with sporadic spikes.

One of the guests (Audrey) was French so she started to ask questions in French and I relayed his answers, after several questions Marquis de Rocforte tipped his hat in a very Royal fashion. Audrey noted that her arm felt as if it was being held and many of the guests also noted that she was standing in an awkward way. Audrey also felt as if something was being pressed into her hand, like a coin.

Many guests could smell cannabis and near to Audrey the smell of stale alcohol could be smelt by some. The more we talked about the spirit energy the more the KII meter showed high levels of EMF. Another guest Michelle felt a touch on her shoulder whilst she was standing in one of the cells.

I decided to finish the session with a séance to try to get some of the other guests to feel the spirit energies, however the only person who seemed to be affected in a painful way was me, as my arms were moved into some very painful positions, other guests were gently swayed and pushed.

The second session, we would normally swap groups so that all the guests spend time with all of the team, but because the first group to the Woman’s Tower had experienced something unusual we decided not to swap the groups to see if my group felt the same sensations as the first. That way both groups were going into a new location “blind”.

As soon as we entered the Woman’s Tower it had a strange oppressive feeling, we have visited this location several times before but this was the first time I have felt this heavy feeling. Within a matter of minutes everyone in the group was either swaying or rocking gently. It didn’t seem to matter where people stood the feelings were the same. This has never happened here before. Some of the guests who were standing in front of the window (with their backs to the window) were pulled backwards towards the window, those guests who had a wall behind them were pulled backwards into the wall. It was a very strange sensation as this is the area that had recently undergone building work and the floor was perfectly level. I was standing near the door and on more than one occasion I was pushed into the door.

Quite early on in the session we all heard a “Whooo” sound, which because of the way the place is orientated this noise could not have come from outside the Ypres Tower grounds, it had to come from within the courtyard and no-one was in the courtyard.

I was describing a female spirit energy to the group who had just “popped her head in” her name was Daisy, approximately 40 years old who had piercing eyes although the left hand side of her face was disfigured (either by a stroke or a scar). Whilst I was describing her Carl (GHE team) suddenly exclaimed he had just seen a face, below is his account of what he saw.

I started to feel very strange, all the hairs on my arms and neck started to stand up and I had goose bumps on my arms. Then something caught my eye and my attention was drawn to the door. This is when the following event happened;

The room was nearly in total darkness with only a little light coming in through the window from the moon. As I looked in the direction of the doorway a women appeared at the doorway and took three steps in to the room and looked straight at me for a moment and then stepped back out of the doorway out of view. I was taken a little by surprise and couldn’t really talk for a moment and I was trying to get Steve’s attention and when I finally did, I stuttered that I had just seen a women walk into the room. After a moment I started to calm down and explained in more detail what I had seen.

The woman was about 5ft6 to 5ft8 in height and had very wild looking white hair. She had very gaunt face and you could clearly see her cheek bones sticking out, she had dark eyes which were set back in to her face, her expression on her face was very strange which scared me a little. She was wearing a white smock which was very dirty. The sleeves were short and it came down to her knees, it was all ripped and in tatters. The women had nothing on her feet and her skin was pale and dirty, her nails on both her fingers and feet were dirty and long. When she moved she did not make any sound. No one heard anyone or anything come up or down the stairs, which are normal so noisy is anyone moves on them. It was like looking at someone in daylight and she was so clear and solid.

I was a little shaky after the experience and took me several hours to recover fully. But with this in mind I can’t wait to go back and investigate again.

Just after Carl had seen this, noises could be heard on the staircase and footfalls outside on the gravel to which I stated to the group that it was so loud it must be a person. It was. It was one of the members of the other group who asked that I come with them as they had an issue with one of the guests that needed my urgent attention.

As I arrived back at the main Tower one of the guests was being carried out of the building by two people, she was totally oblivious to what was happening and erratically shaking with spasms and fits. This particular guest had something similar happen to her before at this location and on that occasion had to be manhandled out of the Tower, this time she had to be carried out. The guest was being affected by a particularly nasty spirit energy who in the past would have easily murdered women with one hand by strangling them. I decided that we need to move this guest further away from the Tower as the spirit energy was able to use the Tower as a source of energy, further away he would not be able to. The spirit gave me his name as Terry the Terrible, which obviously wasn’t his name. The guest kept repeating the name Frank, even when asked who she came with, the only name she uttered was Frank. All the time she was still shaking violently, although not as bad as when I first arrived on the scene. During this I was administering what I would call emergency healing to push the nasty energy out of the guest, which was working, but as always it takes time. Within 10 minutes the guest was fully back to normal although very shaken and dazed, probably wondering why she was outside on the grass. The guest described the sensation of what it felt like, which in her own words were “like being pushed down inside”. This is typical although thankfully not common of what it feels like when a nasty spirit energy pushes our own energies aside. This is something that I have come across before but thankfully not too often.

After this all groups had a break before we embarked on our free session, this is when we let our guests use our equipment and venture throughout the venue to hold their own ghost hunt.

I went back to the Woman’s Tower as my session was cut short and I wanted to see if the same spirit energies would do something. On entering the upper floor the now usual swaying and tipsy feeling returned and with the people present I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. All four recordings had spirit voices in them, but when this was analysed by our experts none of the words spoken could be understood, this is unusual because we can usually identify at least one word, but on this occasion we have four recordings with words, but we cannot understand any of the words. During the EVP experiment Jamie (Guest) had trouble speaking and she sounded completely out of breath, Carl felt unwell (as usual here) and had to leave. Marc (GHE team) who was downstairs heard some random noises which he thought was us, but we weren’t moving or making any noise. When asking for the spirits to make a noise everyone heard mumbling but could not decide on which direction the noise came from and then we all heard something drop, on investigating this, I found a small stone on the middle of a step of the staircase, which I am fairly sure wasn’t there before as I’m sure someone would have noticed it. I joined Marc downstairs to hear some of the noises he was hearing and those noises were odd but neither of us couldn’t decide where or what we were hearing. Jamie (Guest) & Ted (Museum staff) quickly joined us as they said it was too freaky upstairs.

A little while later I went back to the Women’s Tower and joined three guests, who had a spirit box (a device that scans the FM radio frequencies in reverse at 100ms) and were trying to get spirit to say something. As soon as I entered the room everyone clearly heard “Steve” on the spirit box.

Asking various questions some of which were answered correctly, some were not (especially the number questions e.g. how many people in room).

On asking whether the spirit energies would like leave, I requested that they say Bye or Goodbye on the spirit box, we all then heard “Good” “Bye” as two separate words, spoken in a female voice.

This ghost hunt was one of the most interesting we have had at this location as the activity seemed to be non-stop and every guest (some more than others) felt real paranormal activity or heard something that they could not explain. The sensations felt in the Women’s Tower were the same for both groups and everyone felt the same sensations and physical movements. Certainly one ghost hunt that we will remember for a long time.
