Red Lion Hotel – 27th January 2017 – Steve

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 27th January 2017
Colchester, Essex

It is a rare occasion when I feel threatened or intimidated by spirit, but this particular event in room 7 there was an unpleasant atmosphere. The group that I took in here for a séance started out as lacklustre in energy although the spirit was present he gave his name as Brian and that he passed away in the 1980s. He said he was a local man who often visited the Red Lion Hotel. He didn’t give any other information, but he looked to be in his early 50s. Brian could move some of the guest’s arms and push and pull people by their arms. He was able to pull most of the group to the floor in the second group.
Suddenly, the spirit showed us his true nature. I saw what I can only describe as a “dirty old man”, one of the guests looked in the same direction as I did and promptly screamed as she saw something sitting in the chair and it scared her.
As it turned out Brian was a nasty man who would bring you girls and boys back to his room at the hotel, he was never challenged or arrested for his crimes although he didn’t say how he passed away.
The atmosphere that was in this room scared me and most of the guests. No-one really wanted to spend any time in this room, many guests wanted to leave the room immediately but I wanted the spirit to react or say something on my voice recorder. (Nothing was heard from the spirit during the recording).
Whilst this was a fascinating experience for me, as I have been a professional ghost hunter for 13 years but this is probably only the second time in all those years where I too didn’t feel comfortable in a haunted bedroom.
The rest of the ghost hunt was a good night with the scrying being exciting for some of the guests as strange photos were taken in the room.

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt – 18th April 2015

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 18th April 2015
Colchester, Essex

This was our second investigation in Colchester of the week as we had been at The Town Hall the night before and were hoping that the spirits would make themselves known in the Hotel.

We split everyone into 4 groups and each group headed off to a different area with different team members. I chose the cellar as always because some things happen here which do not happen anywhere else in the hotel.

There was only really one spirit in the cellar, his name was Michael and he was a Dray man (he delivered ale and beer from the local brewery). He fell to his death at The Red Lion hotel (although it wasn’t called that then) in 1833 by falling down the keg drop and breaking his neck.

This wasn’t the only spirit that made an appearance although Michael was the most prominent or the strongest energy. There were also other male spirits who lurked in the background and a couple of female spirits who made themselves known to different people.

All but the last group to the cellar there was lots of arm movement on command, with the arms of people being lifted when they thought nothing was going to happen to them, people being pushed and swayed on their feet much to their surprise and amazement. Some of the guests saw what they thought were people lurking in the shadows, or people watching them.

Plus every so often one of the grates of the keg drop is loose so when people on the high street walked on it, it made a very loud bang. This didn’t help with people’s nerves, especially when they were standing closer to it!

There were also many strange noises and whispers heard by some people but not everyone, although those that heard the sounds could not always say in which direction the sound came from.

In the second group there was a male guest who said that he felt petrified, he didn’t know why but he was afraid of something, this was apparently very uncharacteristic of him as he usually wasn’t scared of anything. After the session had ended he went outside and when he came back in he felt fine.

The last group didn’t want to be moved and every time someone walked on the grate several people screamed and jumped. However another male guest in this group during the course of the séance started acting in an aggressive manner and when I looked at him he didn’t look himself and looked very angry and had the face of someone who wanted to fight. He also reported that he felt very cold and at one point unable to stand properly. I felt that had the conditions have been right he (the guest) would have gone into a trance to allow the spirit to talk, however I also felt that it wasn’t safe to do so. After I placed this guest in the centre of the circle he regained his normal look and stance and told me what he felt, although he didn’t know why he felt so aggressive.

We have held numerous ghost hunts at the Red Lion Hotel and I have held many séances in the cellar, but never has a person felt aggressive for no reason or been affected by spirit in this way, let alone two people in different groups behaving in similar ways.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt that many people had paranormal encounters and experiences that they weren’t expecting.

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.

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor Ghost Hunt – 12-7-2013

Friday, August 9th, 2013

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 12th July 2013
Toys Hill, Kent

This location is one of the strangest we do, simply because there is no “normal” experience. Every time we come here, things that happened on previous occasions fail to occur, instead something else that we have not encountered before happens.

After making our way to the area where the house once stood and handing out some of our electronic equipment, the guests roamed around. Various contacts were made and there were some usual communication with different spirits. Some were workers from the old house, others were more random, plus various children.

After I had seen three spirits, all female, and maids walk past towards the terraces, I too walked in this direction and although I lost sight of them when near the terraces another male spirit called Simon de Verre stepped forward. He was lurking in the shadows and was stood behind a guest that was seated on a bench. When I informed the guest, she instantly moved away from the bench. Another guest however sat in the same spot and they too noticed that the atmosphere was different. As more people ventured into this area, me and Jason (guest) were being gently swayed and pushed. Each of us held out our hands to try to feel the spirit and whilst we didn’t feel what I would have expected to feel, we noticed that each of our hands were moving in a “breathing” motion. Gently in and out much like someone breathing. Another guest (Sue) felt a pressure on her throat when she was in this area on her own and she also relayed to me what she saw, which looked similar to a cook carrying something.

After many photographs were taken, where some had some strange mists although no orbs or light anomalies we moved into the woods.

Here we formed a séance circle and I encouraged spirits to come forward and touch people or move them. It took a while, but eventually a male spirit aged in his mid-60s and looking rather frazzled or worn out started to affect guests by gently moved their arms. This moved onto gently pushing people and then abruptly stopped. The reason for this was another younger male energy had walked towards us and unusually I could not see any detail, although I knew he was in his early 20s and quite muscular. This particular energy walked around the circle, making people feel uncomfortable. Sam (guest) felt unusually scared and afraid to look behind her. There were some odd sounds coming from that direction, although they sounded more like animals than anything else to me. Then as quickly as he arrived, this particular energy left and the old gent came back. Once again people started to sway and when I asked for him to push or pull people, he did so almost immediately with about half the guests feeling a pulling back sensation, which usually happened quickly and without any warning, which surprised them.

After the séance I turned on my spirit box (a device that scans the FM radio band in reverse at 100ms) and when asking for the spirit to say one of our names, we first heard a faint “Charlotte” and then a very clear “Jason”. Charlotte was not a name of a guest, but Jason was. I then asked for the spirit to tell me how many of us were standing here, or the day of the week. After a short interlude we heard 12. There were 11 of us, although as someone pointed out, with the male spirit this could have been 12 if he was counting himself. Plus it was also the 12th day of July. I did ask some more questions, but sadly no intelligent responses were heard.

Once again an unusual ghost hunt with everyone getting some form of paranormal activity, either by touch, feelings or answering their questions via our electronic equipment.

Pilgrims Way Woods ghost hunt – 10-8-2012

Pilgrims Way Woods ghost hunt – 10th August 2012

The last time that I investigated this particular woods was several months ago and I had forgotten how steep the hill is to get to the woods since there is no easy way to get to these woods from either end. After we made our way up the hill, (which gave everyone more exercise than they were anticipating) and onto the disused road of Pilgrims Way I started to explain what had occurred here before and what sort of things the guests could expect, as we (Ghost Hunt Events) do not intend to scare our customers and what we do isn’t designed to be scary, but nevertheless people might get scared because of the location.

After entering the woods and finding a suitable place to sit against a tree I gave the guests some of our kit (a KII meter and a ghost communicator) to allow them to see when spirit energies were close to them and so that they may ask questions that have a yes or no answer.

A female energy joined us, her name was Charlotte and she was aged in her late 50s or early 60s. It transpired from the questions the guests asked that she was not from Kent and had no children nor married. When I asked whether she was here because we were she answered “Yes”. Which isn’t a great surprise to me as this often happens, spirit not related to the location often visit just to participate in whatever we are doing. When people ask why the most common answer is because they can.

There was also a male energy present, although his name I couldn’t understand but it sounded similar to Frank but could have been Framke which might be Swedish? He was in his late 50s and a stocky build and was a farmer.

The guests also questioned this spirit for some time as well as Charlotte. During the periods of questioning there were high levels of KII activity, as if spirit were walking amongst us.

Some of the guests also took photographs at this time and some had photographed light anomalies or orbs, but nothing more interesting than this.

I tried using my SB7 (a Spirit box – which is a device that scans radio waves at 100ms in reverse, so any voices we hear on this we can be sure that it is not being broadcast.) There were possibly a number of names called out on this device and a possible “Hello” but unfortunately there was a lot of radio stations and the usual static was interspersed with lots of snippets of music.

I decided that we should hold a séance so that all the guests would hopefully feel the spirit energies and be affected in some way. Almost as soon as we started there was a very bright white light flash behind where we were standing, which lit up the woods. It was similar to a very powerful camera flash, although no-one took a photo (as we were all holding hands) and there is nothing nearby that could cause this. This was the only time all evening that we saw this.

A male energy came to join us, his name was Timothy. He was 22 years old wearing modern clothing, possibly from 1970s era. He was of a slim build and had ginger hair and fair skin. As I asked him to push the guests I heard him announce to me (no one else heard it) who he was attempting to move or manipulate.

First he pushed Tia (guest) gently from side to side and then in an anticlockwise circle movement, which Tia found a little odd. Timothy then moved on to Natalie (guest) and she too was pushed from side to side and then in the same anticlockwise pattern. As I could see him move around the group I knew exactly who was likely to be next but thought better of announcing it as it would be a greater surprise to the guest when it happened. Suddenly Dawn (guest) too felt as if she had lost her balance and fell backwards, like someone had bumped into her, which surprised her. Both Tia and Natalie were still be moved when Dawn again felt another jolt backwards.

Tia also was pushed forwards and backwards much to her amazement as she was trying to keep still but Timothy was having none of that!

As we were about to finish the séance we all heard a loud noise quite close to us, it sounded like someone had stood on a twig and it had snapped. Since there was no wind and no animal heard rustling this noise was unexpected and anomalous.

After the séance I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment, where I asked all the guests to think of a question to ask Timothy, the more personal a question the more likely the spirit will respond.

After the guests asked their respective question I played the recording back and during this I noted that some of the questions had answers, on the second play of the experiment I pointed out where I heard the possible answers and also we all heard a very distinct “Hello” after I said my name to Timothy. On analysis of this recording there is also another “Hello” after I ask my question which was not audible at the time. You can hear this at http://youtu.be/Uw1GeujsiBE

The guests questions also had answers and you can hear these at:-http://youtu.be/n0asdi283mI
http://youtu.be/b8jtpLLA0xo
http://youtu.be/9RbUHGoXxx0
http://youtu.be/GSUhJ7EXxwo
http://youtu.be/5EYyWiFEBGI

Considering there were 6 guests and myself this was a very successful EVP experiment, with only one person not having a response after their question.

This concluded our ghost hunt at Pilgrims Way Woods and this is one ghost hunt which will be repeated in the future mainly to see whether we get as many or similar clarity of EVPs as we don’t often get more than one or two per investigation.

Once again the guests thoroughly enjoyed their ghost hunt and we made the long walk back to the cars but thankfully the walk was all downhill.

Wychling woods ghost hunt – 13-7-2012

Wychling Woods ghost hunt – 13th July 2012

Wychling woods (Kent) is known for its weirdness, strange things happen here, every time we have been in the woods, odd and strange things have happened either to the guests one by one, or to the whole group en mass.

We may have been tempting fate to be here on Friday 13th, but that only counts if you are superstitious! We aren’t.

Our first session was in a familiar part of the woods, this area has in the past been very productive and many paranormal occurrences have taken place. This evening was no different. We started by just calling out for spirit to step forward, there was a high level of KII activity and plenty of communication from spirit via our communication device. Whilst this was going on one guest (who has been on various ghost hunts many times) jumped and exclaimed that he had just heard a footstep beside him, no-one else heard it. As we continued strange whistles were heard, sometimes in response to our whistles but many were not. Then out of the blue we all heard footsteps approaching from deeper in the woods, which given the nature of these woods (it is very thick with trees) it seemed very unlikely especially since we saw no torch light and the sound of these footsteps only lasted for about 30 seconds.

From this point on many of the guests were feeling frightened and on edge and the smallest amount of noise made them all jumpy. All of the guests huddled, whereas I moved freely around them, not feeling at all scared and without a torch (as I have very good night vision). All of the guests said that they all felt spooked and that they had the feeling that something was about to happen, many guests also reported that they felt watched and all reported at different times the feeling of their jackets or legs being touched.

We continued, and I started my SB7 (Spirit box) which is a device that scans radio waves at 100ms in reverse, so any voices we hear on this we can be sure that it is not being broadcast. Asking for the spirit energies present to use the device to say their name or any of the guests names. Within a few minutes we all heard two of the guests name spoken clearly via the device.

This did not help any of the guests feel more relaxed and whilst very little happened of a paranormal nature all the guests were now standing back to back as they were all feeling on edge and all commented that they felt a sense of dread. As I moved closer to them I too could feel a slight feeling of being watched although not of the same intensity.

After a few minutes all the guests exclaimed that this strange feeling just lifted and they all felt comfortable in the woods. What caused this feeling I could not tell.

Our second session was on the other side of the woods in an area which has previously been another area of much paranormal activity, although since my last visit I had some problems locating it as the path had overgrown with weeds, after much stomping about I finally found the right area.

Here we were met by a female energy called Elizabeth who was aged in her late 20s and she told me she was a Land Girl during the Second World War. Elizabeth also answered many questions via our communication devices although very little was audible on the SB7. KII activity however was very high. There was little photographic evidence from the night, apart from in this area where several light anomalies (spirit orbs) were photographed.

Light Anomaly in Wychling Woods

Once again an unusual ghost hunt, but one where even the guests who had thought they had experienced everything on a ghost hunt felt like it was their first time ghost hunting.
