Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 19-10-2013

Tuesday, December 3rd, 2013

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 19th October 2013
Chatham, Kent

Fort Horsted is one of our favourite ghost hunting venues and paranormal activity usually happens to various people in the whole group, rarely does so much activity happen to everyone in the same room, but on this particular occasion everyone who entered one of the most interesting areas of the Fort, known at the Fort as area 26 had much the same activity, albeit with some variations but generally everyone had some form of physical paranormal activity that they either couldn’t explain or once it happened the guests wanted it to happen more frequently.

As always we split the whole group of people into smaller groups and after a short historical briefing and a health & safety talk, a quick coffee and or cigarette we head off in our respective groups to start the ghost hunt.

Within the area known as 26, which is a wonderful [sic] 180 steps down and 30 up into the counterscarp galleries I picked one of the rooms which we have had lots of activity before and started a séance circle. To me is the best way that I can demonstrate the active spirits energy in a physical way so that I can “prove” that the spirits are real.

The first group to this area were all quite chatty until I asked that spirit step forward and touch and move people and at first everyone fell silent, then as I noticed a spirit come towards us, he started to move my hands and then others in the group. The spirit was called Gerald Clarke, he was a Second World War soldier, a Private first class from some rifle regiment and he told me (later in the evening) that he trained to be a sniper. He was about 24 years old, 5’9” in height and of slight build. He was wearing his “Going out” uniform. This is a special uniform that would only be worn when the soldiers were out and about in a town or when they were not on duty or in active service. He also sported a pipe, but I forgot to mention this until Jason (GHE team & camera) and others started to smell sweet tobacco smells.

Gerald firstly moved people hands and arms and slowly became more confident and started to touch people’s heads and strangely ears, although the person that this happened to first didn’t like her ears being touched!

Many people in the group we asking (in their heads) that Gerald move their arms in a particular direction, although Gerald had his own ideas and rarely actually did what anyone asked until they asked in a polite way. Many people were also pulled down to the floor very quickly (by their hands and arms) and once on the floor Gerald continued to move them and dragged their hands across the floor to the other side of the circle.

As Gerald became more proficient at moving people there was one moment when everyone apart from one person was on the floor, mostly in a bit of a heap because some people had been dragged down on top of other people who were already on the floor.

During the whole session we all heard some odd and strange noises, some of those noises sounded like footsteps whilst other sounded like stones being thrown, (we have had stones thrown at people in this room before on previous ghost hunts) however we did not investigate the noises because we were usually on the floor or moving towards the floor when these noises occurred.

The Second group to this area started much the same way, people being silent but as soon as I saw Gerald, I explained to the guests what I could see people generally relaxed and once again gentle arm movement started but quickly turned into more meaningful movements. There was also another male spirit, Justin who I believe I have met before at the fort, although he didn’t do anything physical to the guests apart from stand near or behind them to make people feel uncomfortable.

After moving various people within this group, Gerald quickly moved on to swaying and gently pushing people with some guests commenting that they felt like they were on a boat or had just got off a boat.

Some guests felt a physical touch, usually on their backs or in the ribs and considering we were all holding hands as part of the séance it could not have been anyone physical.

This time though as people asked (in their heads) for their arms to be moved in a particular direction, Gerald complied and did exactly what every person asked of him. After many of the guests were moved in some way Gerald moved on to his speciality and that seemed to be pulling people to the floor, which is exactly what happened to me first and when I stood up others were being pulled down. Gerald however had now managed to understand how to move people and wasn’t happy just pulling people to the floor, he now managed to push and pull people in different directions by their arms and move people into strange positions and when anyone asked that they be moved Gerald always picked on one particular guest to move them first before moving the person that asked to be moved, this was very amusing to watch, but unfortunately this session was not filmed by us.

The Third group to this area started in the same manner as all the other sessions, gentle arm movement, usually just lifting someone’s arms so that they realised it wasn’t them and then very quickly (probably because Gerald now understood how to move us) moved on to pulling people in strange ways. This session was much like the first session as Gerald moved various people’s arms to touch other people’s faces, chins, chests and legs, which became very embarrassing.

After just about everyone had been either; touched, pushed or moved in some way Gerald very quickly moved on to pulling people’s arms across the group so that we either had to move or fall over. Justin (the other male spirit) also made an appearance although this time would not really enter the room and staying the same place throughout much of the time. I could see and hear him laughing a lot.

Most of this session the physical nature of the event meant that generally we were all moved and hands were being moved in all directions from just about everyone, it was very similar to a modern game of Twister although this was in virtual darkness!

Many times my hands were pulled to the floor and dragged across the floor, which was actually quite painful, although I was the only person to spend time on the floor, which I suppose made a change, because the other two groups this was a usual occurrence.

As this session progressed several whistles were heard, but unfortunately we were all making a noise or talking when this happened and none of us had any idea where the noises came from, although the noises all sounded like it came from within the Fort rather than the dry moat.

After our controlled session we always allow the guests to wander quite freely to different areas of the Fort, usually with one of the GHE team in toe because of the various dangers at this fort. I joined a group of four guests in an area that they had not visited during our controlled sessions and we came across a familiar (to me) female spirit energy. Her name was Annie and she had been a Nurse at the Fort. One guest asked that she touch his hand and although he felt no proper or physical touch, he did feel a strange tingling sensation in his hand and arm. This is a normal sensation as Annie has previously made guests feel the same when they have been in this area.

This was an exceptionally physical ghost hunt as everyone felt some kind of physical paranormal activity, whether they wanted to feel it or not! Obviously many of the guests who experienced the dragging across the floor or pulled to the floor didn’t want to return to this area and spent the free time doing that so they ventured off to different areas to try to communicate with the spirit with some of our electronic gadgets. Many guests reported some interesting communication and everyone left happy as they had all experienced something that they didn’t expect and realised that actually it wasn’t as scary as they thought it was going to be.

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt – 14-6-2013

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 14th June 2013
Toys Hill, Kent

This night was one of the few times that it wasn’t windy or cold at Toys Hill and it was actually a very pleasant evening to be ghost hunting.

Gathered around the site of the old house I handed out various electronic gadgets so that the guests could communicate with the spirits, almost immediately after I had handed them out and explained what each does and after all guests turned off their phones, all the KII (EMF) meters lit up showing that spirit energies were amongst us. It took a while for the communication devices to get a contact, but once they did the activity built and the level of activity intensified. One particular guest felt a touch on her shoulder, which when she told the rest of the group, many of the other guests also said they felt something similar, but dismissed it at the time.

As I was wondering around checking up on the guests who had wandered in all directions, I came across a spirit boy about 10 years old called William, who was attempting to interact with the ghost hunters, but was having difficulty. His mother Catherine had numerous time communicated with the guests but she was encouraging her son to do the same. Many guests also felt tugs on their clothing, which was attributed to William as he tried to get people’s attention.

Whilst I was stood overlooking the terraces talking to another group of guests I could see another male spirit called Geoffrey, he looked like a butler and he was about 40 years old, quite broad shouldered and spoke very well. A guest was standing more or less next to him and she was busy taking photographs and when she turned in the direction that the spirit energy was stood she had many strange photographs, as did the people standing next to me who were also taking photos. The photos looking like they had wisps of mist in them, but given where we were standing (on a hill) mist was very unlikely as it looked like a very clear evening.

As we headed into the woods to conduct a séance, I noticed a male spirit energy followed us from a crossroad, his name was Thomas and he was an engineer who lived in the local vicinity. Once we formed a circle and after I explained the dos and don’ts I asked Thomas to move peoples arms, which he did almost immediately which some guests found unnerving. I then asked for him to push and pull people and this too also spooked the guests especially as some people were being pushed into others, usually quite randomly and with such force that the guests were not able to restrict their movements and just fell into other people, this was very amusing to watch. As the session continued Thomas was able to move more people and move them that they had to step forwards and back to stop themselves falling over. During this session some footfall sounds were heard behind us, which was deeper into the woods and no torch lights were seen and I find it difficult to believe that someone would be walking without a torch in those woods since there are lots of roots from the trees covering the ground and it is very easy to trip over.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and one in which many of the guests had their own paranormal experience.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 8-6-2013

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 8th June 2013
Chatham, Kent

As a team we always look forward to our ghost hunts at Fort Horsted, as many of us have had some very unique experiences as well as our guests. We were also hoping that some of the things that happened during out previous visit on 18th May would happen again. The full investigation team were also in attendance so we have some video footage of the nights’ activities.

I started in my favourite area of the fort, it is also the furthest walk through some of the spookiest tunnels.

We were joined by a female spirit energy who I have seen before at this fort, and a male spirit energy who I have not seen before. The female spirit was called Annie, a nurse. The male spirit called Christopher was aged in his mid-30s about 5’9” in height and quite chubby.

The session started with some communication via our electronic devices, although no discernible activity was seen on our KII (EMF) meters. After starting a séance to prove to the guests that the spirit were indeed with us, I asked for people arms to be moved, which seemed to take a while, but once it started the spirits were able to easily move peoples arms, which the guests found perplexing and slightly scary. The arms of the guests were moved on command and at various times pointed to different people as well as pulling some people down by their arms. Throughout this session lots of strange banging sounds were heard by everyone and many guests saw shadows in the door way and the corridor beyond. I also asked that people be swayed or pushed by the spirits and it didn’t take long before many people felt like they were on a boat and Adam (guest) got pulled backwards a lot. I finished the session early because another male energy came into the room and he wasn’t a nice person. The only information I could get out of him was his name; Tom.

After the séance I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment and although there were lots of possible ghost voices in the recordings, only two have been confirmed by our experts. You can hear these at:-

http://youtu.be/eT8QBSBBw4w
http://youtu.be/7YYveHUQ1Ik

The Second group, I also brought to this same area and once again both Annie & Christopher were both present, the nasty male energy thankfully was not.

Once again after I asked for arm movement, the spirit obliged and very quickly started to move everyone that they could, however there was also some strangeness to this as many people had their chins rubbed by the hands of other guests, why I don’t really know. Also when asking for the spirit to push or pull people many guests felt the same sensations as the first. We all felt the pulling down sensation although it was not as strong as what happened to the first group.

The Third group that ventured here had much the same activity although Nick (guest) had more activity than anyone else as the spirit energies took a liking to him and pushed, pulled and swayed him throughout the session. We were also joined by a third spirit energy called David; a Second World War soldier in his late 20s.

Once again a very active and exciting ghost hunt with the guests getting lots of paranormal experiences.

Pluckley Screaming Woods – 26-5-2013

Wednesday, July 17th, 2013

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 26th May 2013
Pluckley, Kent.

Our Pluckley ghost hunts are very popular which is why this particular event was held on a Sunday, albeit a Bank Holiday weekend in the hope that it wouldn’t be busy either in Pluckley or the woods, however there were a large number of people in the car park when we arrived and were leaving after spending a couple of hours getting muddy walking around the woods. By the time we started they had all left the woods, but we could still hear them shouting in the car park.

However as we walked deeper into the woods, thankfully we could hear less of their shouting and screaming. After stopping in the middle of the woods, which is where I normally start and after handing out some of our portable ghost hunting equipment the spirit energies started to make themselves known. Firstly by lighting up our KII (EMF) meters and then using the communication devices so that the guests could ask questions and get responses. Many people also took photos at this time and some of their photos contained some strange anomalies, namely mists. Light anomalies or orbs we ignore in the woods because it is probable that they are caused by an environmental issue; like pollen, moisture or insects. A male spirit called Thomas, aged 34 years old joined us briefly and some guests were able to use the electronic equipment to ask him questions.

From here we moved onto another active spot, in fact it is the spot where I and previous guests have heard a strange female scream, which is probably how the woods got its name.

At this location we were joined by a familiar male spirit to me, his name is Philip and he passed away in a motorcycle accident near to the woods in the 1960s. I asked Philip to move the arms of the guests when we were holding the séance, which he was able to do with ease. One of the guests was Spanish and did not understand any English, so it was quite a surprise to him when his hands started to move. Other guests including myself found this quite interesting because this particular person didn’t understand English then he could not have known what I was asking the spirit to do to him and others, which proved to the guests that it wasn’t mind over matter. Lots of guests also felt swaying motions and being pulled backwards into a sort of limbo position! Many guests were also touched (by the arms of other guests) on limbs that were recovering i.e. broken arms, shoulders, ribs etc.

At the end of this séance session I held an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment.

Unfortunately most of the questions contained too much background noise like coughing, whispering and general shuffles to hear any spirit response, however one question had a clear answer from Philip. This can be heard at http://youtu.be/exyvd-NVyI0

From here we moved onto another active spot within the woods, the particular area is a much more spooky part of the woods, the trees have grown in an odd way, which many guests say they look spooky and that the trees seem to watch!

Turning on my spirit box (a device that’s scans the FM radio frequencies in reverse at 100ms) and asking for the spirit present to say someone’s name it didn’t take long before we heard “Steve” plus some other names, although none of those were guests names. But we did hear the words “Go” and “Now”. With this the guests wanted to leave this particular part of the woods as that had spooked them out. Just as we were about to leave the area, two guests (a mother and her son) both heard a voice say “Jesus” however no-one else heard this, nor any noise that could be interpreted as a voice. This is something that happens frequently in this part of the woods, people have often heard voices or noises that no-one else hears.

This was an enjoyable ghost hunt and one in which many guests had some form of paranormal activity that they couldn’t explain happen to them.

Fort Borstal private ghost hunt – 2-2-2013

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

Fort Borstal private ghost hunt 2nd February 2013
Rochester, Kent

This was a special ghost hunt for a Hen party as they wanted something scarier than a hotel, they couldn’t have picked a better location as the very nature of this Fort is meant to be hidden and the owners maintain that.

The best evidence to be had at this location is when there are very few people in a particular part, but because this group wanted to stay together (to start with) we all headed off to the old Officer’s Mess area.

After we gave the majority of the guests some of our kit to enable them to detect the spirit energies that were present, whilst I and Carl (a colleague) filmed them we noticed that any small amount of noise made the guests a bit jumpy, bearing in mind of course that we were in virtual darkness.

There were some extremely high levels of EMF detected and shown on our KII meters and the ghost communicator devices were also busy during this time. Many of the guests were asking the usual types of questions although several times someone asked whether the spirits would like us to leave and every time the answer was “Yes”.

Other guests felt some light touches and lights were seen in the room and after a while once everyone had got used to the dark I decided to hold a séance. The spirit energies that were present; two prisoners Timothy & Jeremy from the 1880s were able to move some people’s arms and also gently push some people, not to the point of falling over, but enough for them to know that it wasn’t them losing their balance.

After a short break the guests all went off with the other two members of my team; Marc & Jo to use Ouija boards and to do some table tilting whilst Carl & myself went off to a separate area to do some EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments and to test some new hearing enhancement kit.

Once the guests came back from this session we then let them decide what they wanted to do & where they wanted to go. Most of the guests wanted to go to the counterscarp galleries as this was the only area in which they hadn’t visited during the first two sessions, so the whole group was split into two groups and I took the first group to the galleries.

As soon as we arrived in the area and after the guests wandered throughout the galleries I decided the best way the guests could experience spirit activity was to hold a séance. Captain Daniel Bedford was the spirit energy that was keen to demonstrate his abilities. He was about 6’3” in his late 20s and of a slim build. He seemed to be a very strict man and angry that he had passed away during the First World War, he considered himself too young.

Throughout the séance Daniel was able to manipulate the guests’ arms as well as push them forward and pull them backwards. He was also able to twist people and pull them down onto the floor. Some guests tried to resist this movement but the spirit energy was far greater than their strength and eventually all guests were moved, some pinned against a wall.

At the end of this séance I conducted an EVP experiment the best results can be heard at:-
http://youtu.be/prEBSLiGhzo
http://youtu.be/4oqhNyUcmXg
http://youtu.be/5fdvZiJM_nQ

The second group to this area were also treated to some unusual arm movement by Daniel although this time and with these guests many felt pains in their knees and this was before any pushing and pulling had started. Many guests in this group were also swayed and twisted and eventually the same types of movements were felt by this group as well and even though there were more people in this group than the first once again many people were pushing against a wall, resisting the force turned out to be futile as the spirit energy just wanted us against a wall, once we were moved to the wall the pressure felt in peoples arms and legs just dissipated away.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and one which everyone present are unlikely to forget as this was one of the most physical ghost hunts at Fort Borstal that we have undertaken.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 16-12-2012

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 16th December 2012
Pluckley, Kent

The weather forecast for this evening was mixed, with some rain due in the early part of the night but more importantly that when we were due to be in the woods no rain was forecast. This was rather important because the pathways at this time of year are very muddy, let alone with the extra water from rain.

I started the ghost hunt in my usual place, as it is a very active area and guests always feel something on this path, sometimes they also see paranormal occurrences and take some very interesting photos.

We were joined by Philip a male spirit energy who passed away locally in a motorcycle accident, this particular spirit energy I have seen on a number of occasions. There was also a female spirit energy although she seemed shy and didn’t want to communicate with me. However there was lots of activity on our KII meters and on our communication equipment.

During the séance some people wanted to remain outside the circle, which was not a problem although this did not stop the spirit energies affecting them.

Several of the guests in the séance circle felt spirit move their arms and push them gently.

After I finished the séance, Perry (guest) wanted to be pushed as he was being affected throughout the séance even though he wasn’t in the circle. I placed my hand lightly on his shoulder and the spirit energies pushed and pulled him, which he found surprising.

Our second location (after venturing through more mud) we had lots more communication via our electronic equipment and lots of activity on our KII meters.

I set up the laser grid, but nothing was seen in this. I also turned on my SB7 (a spirit box, which scans the FM radio stations in reverse at 100ms) and we heard the name “Philip” plus “Hi”, “Hello” and some other names, none of which were the names of people present (which is what I asked for).

Unfortunately this session was then brought to an abrupt halt as it started to rain and we started to make our way toward the cars, just in case the rain didn’t pass then we would be nearer the cars than stuck in the woods, which weren’t offering much protection from the elements.

Fortunately by the time we had walked onto what is my final area of the woods the rain had stopped and we could continue with the ghost hunt. Once again there were lots of activity on our KII meters and lots more communication on the electronic equipment.

I noticed that we were being watched by a strict female energy, she was aged in her late 40s and gave me the impression of being a school mistress. Perry was drawn to a particular area of the woods, so we all followed.

Several guests took some photos in this location because it felt odd to them, to me it felt very active. Many of the guests had some very interesting mist photos at this point as well as some “weirdness” to them. One guest said that the spirits name was Geoffrey, (which it was and the electronic communication equipment confirmed it) but the fact that she had got it right she found scary. Perry also felt a physical touch on his shoulder and at first thought it was me, but when he turned his torch on, he could see that I was nowhere near him and neither was anyone else.

At this time I conducted an EVP (electronic voice phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment and there were many responses but only one that is clear to understand. This can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/geIXF5dMhi4

As we were walking out of the woodland, some guests heard the sound of a metallic clink, which they described as being similar to the sound a blacksmith would make when hammering out horse shoes.

This was a good ghost hunt with quite a lot of physical and auditory paranormal activity witnessed by the guests and fortunately the weather did not hamper the ghost hunt.

Fort Borstal ghost hunt, Rochester – 20-10-2012

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 20th October 2012
Fort Borstal, Rochester, Kent

Fort Borstal is one of those sites as a Ghost Hunt company we never thought we would be able to investigate, because it is privately owned. However we were nicely surprised after the owners contacted us wanting to know whether we would be interested in investigating their Fort.

Considering this is one of the five that was built especially to protect Chatham and we already investigate Fort Horsted (which is the largest) we were very keen to see what this Fort had in terms of spiritual activity. We were not disappointed.

The approach to this Fort is strange, not least because of the lack of lighting and it certainly looks a scary place upon arrival and as my team said to me, very atmospheric.

For this ghost hunt we had three distinctly different areas to investigate; The Caponier, which as the worst staircase in the world to navigate, 92 steps down (and back up!), The Officers Mess, which was a secret area even to those soldiers stationed there in The Second World War and a third underground Caponier.

My area for the night was the main Caponier (with the wonderful staircase [sic])

The first group had varying degrees of activity on our electronic equipment; some spikes of KII activity and some communication, but I thought it would be better to hold a séance since this particular place doesn’t get any people visiting and the energy levels would naturally be low.

A male energy by the name of Thomas came forward, he told me that he was a Colour Sergeant (Sergeant Major) in the Army. He was about 6’2” aged in his 20s and of stocky build and he was wearing civilian clothing (a blue shirt). He also gave me the impression that he was a funny character and had a wicked sense of humour. The was also another male energy present; Dave a private. Both were from the Second World War era.

During the séance many voices, mumbling and footsteps were heard, although given where the other two groups were, no person on site could have been responsible for these noises.

Both Thomas and Dave treated most of the guests to some gentle arm movement as they in turn went from one person to another to manipulate them.

At the end of the séance I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. Due to the natural echo because of the long tunnels cancelling out the background noise was quite difficult, as was listening for ghost voices, however the clearest and most audible from this session can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/9euwDXfViZc

The Second group I took to the other end of the Caponier (as it is a double Caponier).  Almost immediately there was good communication from our electronic equipment but no KII spikes. During the resulting séance a WWII Soldier by the name of Jeremy came forward and was able to move some of the guests arms. There was also a female energy present, aged about 20 years old and called Isabelle. During the séance we heard lots of noises, some in the tunnels and one very loud sound that came from the dry moat, this sounded like wood being banged (an impact sound). Several whistles we also heard, although when we heard them no-one could say in which direction the sound came from.

The Third group I took to the same area as the first group, although very little happened because the group were busy laughing and joking with each other and paying little interest to the reason why we were there i.e. ghost hunting.

The strangest sound that we heard was the sound of footfalls, as if someone was approaching but given the staircase and the fact that it was dark, we would have easily seen someone approach, as they would have needed a torch to navigate the staircase.

After we finished our controlled part of the night, we let the guests (under supervision) return to any area which they enjoyed or wanted to experience again in a smaller group or on their own.

I spent some time with another member of my team in the Officer’s Mess just for about 10 minutes or so but during those 10 minutes the both of us heard; a door slam (there are no doors to slam), lots of footsteps, knocking sounds and female voices. We also did several EVP recordings as there was a male energy present who seemed to be of great importance. This energy didn’t like either of us being there and made us feel uncomfortable. Carl who was listening with sound enhancement equipment heard some responses when I asked whether this spirit energy was from Yorkshire. Carl heard “go” “leave” and some laughing.

I too also heard sounds but couldn’t hear any words although I did have a strange chemical taste in my mouth. We both also saw some strange lights further along the corridor.

On analysing our EVP recordings the following results can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/CZe02y2bBJw
http://youtu.be/ad4R00PIaHE

After this the remaining guests joined us in this area to experience the same feelings that we had both just felt. Although the uncomfortable feeling had dissipated, probably due to the fact that any area isn’t scary when there are lots of people about, we did hear some noises, taps, knocking, whistles and some loud bangs.

However one of the guests did capture a strange photograph, which seems to have the shape of a person at the end of the corridor. Both the photographs below are copyrighted to Emma Coyle.

All in all a very enjoyable ghost hunt, especially since we were the first ghost hunting company to investigate Fort Borstal, hopefully future visits to this location we will have more activity experienced by us and our guests.

Bicknor Woods ghost hunt – 19-10-2012

Thursday, October 25th, 2012

Bicknor Woods ghost hunt 19th October 2012

After making our way into the woods, which considering it had been raining all day were unsurprisingly very wet. The witty banter of the guests stopped when the majority of the group screamed when a bird flapped through the trees, this made me smile because this happens every time.

I stopped on the path in the first active location, gave the guests some of our electronic equipment and then we waited for about 10 minutes before a male energy approached us. His name was Timothy Tregar and he was 23 years of slim build and had short brown hair. The guests then asked questions which were answered via the electronic equipment and we were able to establish that he was waiting for his wife and that he worked with ships in Chatham. Although he didn’t give me the exact year of his passing he seemed to be from the late 1890s. Whilst the questioning was going on one of the guests exclaimed that they felt a hand touch them on their back which made them all jumpy!

I decided that this would be the best place to hold a séance since Timothy was walking amongst the group and our KII meters were picking this up.

Within a matter of minutes Timothy was able to move the hands of some of the guests, many found this strange and odd as they were not expecting this type of movement. I then asked if Timothy could push or rock the guests. Almost immediately a group of three girls all swayed to their right and as Timothy made his way around the group several people were either pushed or swayed and after a few minutes everyone was being pushed in some way. Many of the guests reported that they felt like they were on a boat. Some of the guests during this time felt woozy or a little nauseous.

After we completed the séance I set up the laser grid and although nothing notable was seen in the grid I did see another male energy approaching us. His name was Jeffery and was approximately 55 years old and of a stocky build, mostly bald and had a full beard. He gave me the impression due to his smart clothing (a three piece black pin stripe suit) that he was a man of importance.

Once again some of the guests felt a touch or as if someone had brushed past them which made the majority (an 18th birthday party group) all huddle together. I then asked for the spirits to make a noise and many noises were heard, some admittedly could have been normal for the woods however there were some exceptions, like a loud whistle which sounded like the sort of whistle someone would do to call a dog. However given that it was about midnight and no one was walking in these woods this too made a few guests jump. Shortly after this some foot falls were heard behind everyone, which also made them jump & scream.

After using my Spirit Box to no avail we moved further down the path. Both Timothy & Jeffery followed us. We stopped at a place where there was much KII activity and once again the two spirits were using our communication device to talk to us. I asked on several occasions for them to make a noise and just about every time a noise was heard very close to where we were standing. One noise sounded like someone standing on a twig and snapping it, but given that the group were very still after all the other noises this once again made the majority scream and run away from the sound!

Strange and heavy foot falls were also heard in this spot along with shuffling noises, all of which made everyone feel very uneasy.

As I was standing towards the back of the group, as I too had heard the noises and was keen to see whether it was related to an animal, although in my opinion the sound was too loud for a rabbit, fox or badger, I noticed two spirit energies come towards us in a hesitant manner they were a shy pair of siblings, roughly about 14-16 years old, the older of the two was called Rachael and her brother was very shy but would not tell me his name. They asked for my help as they were lost so I immediately held a rescue and they were collected by what looked like their Mother.

After all of the noises many of the guests were ready to leave the woods as they had spent the last hour or so being scared. As I turned to them to explain that we were leaving the woods, there was a strange rustling or movement in the immediate area which scared just about everyone as this sounded like someone crashing through the undergrowth towards us, but when torches were pointed in that direction nothing was seen or heard.

Due to the fact that there was the sound of raindrops falling on leaves all of the night and it could have been raining whilst we were in the woods I did not do an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) experiment as the sound of the rain drops would have been all that we would hear and equally because of the rain no photos were taken throughout the night.

This was a very enjoyable ghost hunt and one in which all the guests either heard or felt physical activity.

Pluckley Woods ghost hunt – 21-9-2012

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 21st September 2012
Pluckley, Kent

It is always a pleasure to investigate Pluckley Woods as the amount of paranormal activity we encounter during the night is always interesting, sometimes scary and usually surprising. This occasion was no different.

As we made our way to my favourite part of the woods, this is a place where so much has happened on past ghost hunts, I noticed that a spirit energy was already following us, much to the surprise of the guests as those at the back felt that they were being watched and followed. The spirit energy that was following us was a Bobbie (Policeman) from late 19th Century.

Once we were where I wanted to be, we gave the guests a collection of our equipment including KII meters and our ghost communication devices so that the guests could interact with the spirit energies present.

There was a male energy aged about 35 who was eager to talk through these devices to the guests and the guests were able to get many answers to why he was with us. After many guests took photographs, some had some unusual mist formations and plenty of orbs. I decided that we should hold a séance to encourage the spirit energies to interact with the guests.

We were joined by a female energy called Lizzie, she was approximately about 40 years old and was able after a while to move the arms of several of the guests, mostly on command. Many of the guests also experienced gentle pushing and swaying and many guest commented that it felt like they were on a boat. During this time many cold spots were felt by the guests and although we were outside, these cold spots were much colder than the ambient air temperature and felt similar to putting a hand inside a freezer.

During this time colleagues of mine stayed outside of the séance circle taking photographs, listening for footfalls and noises and generally monitoring the area. The photograph below is one of the many taken and although it is out of focus it is taken under IR light, which will only illuminate for about 10 feet in complete darkness. The female which is in the distance on the right hand side of the picture should not have been illuminated, not only that but we don’t believe this was one of our guests nor have any explanation of the positioning of the person, since we were standing on a generally flat path. This photo therefore at this time remains anomalous.

Our second stop a little further along the path we set up a laser grid but nothing was seen by anyone in this grid. There were however lots of strange footfall noises which sounded like someone was walking around us, this too is unlikely without the aid of a torch as the woods here are very dense and the ground very uneven. There were lots of periods where there was high levels of EMF energy recorded and shown on our KII meters.

In this area, which has been a very active area in the past I decided that we would hold an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. Out of the 10 people present who participated there were two good ghost voices recorded. You can hear them at:-

Our third area of investigation is in an area that I like to call the spooky woods, as the trees here are much older and higher and on previous occasions we have had lots of things happen to guests.

Once again a laser grid was set up and some of the guests were seeing strange things within the grid; shadows and other lights mainly. I was standing further along the path and could see a male spirit energy approaching, trying to sneak up on us in a way. His name was Alfred or Alfie to his friends, which was strange because a guest also standing with me was called Alfie. The spirit Alfie was aged roughly in his early 60s and was wearing a British Army uniform from the Second World War era. I asked those guests who were standing with me to put their hands out to see if they could feel a difference when the spirit walked into their hands. Many guests reported that they felt a warm sensation in the middle of their palms and tingling or pins & needle sensation in their fingers. Some guests also felt that their fingers were being separated and stretched.

During this time Alfie (guest) felt his jacket being touched and moved, as he described it being like someone had just brushed part him.

After a while the spirit energy carried on and walked past us. We returned to looking into the laser grid and some guests also walked into the grid to see if it made any difference to their senses apart from the ability not to see where the path was. During this the rest of us could hear footfalls and other noises to the right of us and some whistles and knocks were also heard in this direction.

Once again another successful and active ghost hunt with many gets getting a physical experience from the spirit energies that we encountered throughout the evening.

Toys Hill & Weardale Manor – 17-8-2012

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Toys Hill & Weardale Manor ghost hunt – 17th August 2012

We haven’t had a lot of luck with the weather at this venue in 2012. First time it was -10 degrees Celsius back in February, then in April it was just before a thunderstorm, June it was a thunderstorm so fourth time lucky and this was well worth waiting for.

We started in the remains of the manor, gave the guests lots of our kit to investigate with and let them roam around. Many guests reported seeing shadows and lights within the near distance trees. I generally stayed put and various groups of people reported different activity in all directions, but the one thing they all commented on was the fact that all felt watched.

A male energy by the name of Philip approached, he was a gardener when there was a house at this place, he tipped his hat to me and some of the guests felt his presence.

Steve (guest) felt a light touch on his back and the sound of a dog, panting during the phase when the spirit Philip was around.

Many guests also reported hearing voices, whispering and whistles in one particular place. Four guests (Andy, Wendy, Marie & Shelley) all heard these sounds as well as the sound of a children’s music box. I then went over to the part to have a look and was met by a Frenchman spirit called Alain. He was about 55 years old and dressed in a smart black suit which had a silver pocket watch attached. He gave me the impression he was from 1900s.

The guests that had some of our equipment all had high levels of activity displayed on the various meters.

From here we decided to move into the woods to hold a séance, as the last time this proved very successful but due to the heavy rain it was not as enjoyable as it could have been.

Once again after finding a suitable spot there were high levels of activity shown on our KII meters and on our ghost communicators.

Within a few minutes of us starting a séance a male energy aged in his early 30s approached us, his name was Roger and he was wearing a white shirt and grey trousers and it was impossible to associate him with a period of time, although he wasn’t wearing a tie or hat.

Roger was very capable of moving people in various ways and generally pushed and pulled most of the group, starting gently and then as his confidence grew the level of movement increased and some people, especially Phil and Lisa, were manoeuvred into some rather uncomfortable positions.

Cold spots were also reported by the guests, mainly behind me as the temperature was a steady 20 degrees Celsius most of the night, these cold spots were felt behind four or five people and it felt like stepping into a freezer.

During the séance Andy felt a stick hit his legs and since Carl (GHE Team member) was outside the circle and at the time on the opposite side of Andy went to investigate although Carl could not see a stick anywhere near Andy. After the séance finished Andy found the stick about 14 inches in front of him.

After the séance finished, which I concluded after most people apart from two had either felt arm movement or had been pushed by Roger, some of the guests wandered deeper into the woods as they thought they heard voices and noises whilst the séance was taking place. The rest of the guests made their way out of the woods.

However those that stayed listening in the woods were soon returning because they heard footfalls in the woods and since no torch light was seen, this scared them.

We made our way back to the site of the manor house and conducted an EVP, although when we played the recording back very few anomalies were heard, however once we analysed them we discovered there were quite a few responses, although not all could be interpreted.

The best ones can be heard at:-

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and a very productive one with many paranormal occurrences taking place.

After we had enjoyed a cup of coffee back at the car park and just before we were about to leave, Carl (team member) saw a “shadow” behind me and exclaimed that it looked too real to be a spirit and so the four of us who were there turned on all our torches to try to see what this was. To our amazement there was a young male (real person, wearing a blue shirt, black top and trousers and had glasses with curly black hair) standing very close to the hedge on the way out of the car park and even when I blinded this person with my torch he failed to move, but just looked down to the ground. All of us decided that this was a very good time to leave as he was probably drunk. As we were driving out of the car park we noticed this same person lying down on the grass beside the road which was really strange.
