Rye Castle ghost hunt – 27th September 2014

Rye Castle ghost hunt 27th September 2014
Rye, East Sussex

As usual I headed to the first floor of the Keep with half of the guests, the other half were in the Women’s Tower.

The séance that I held started well with lots of arm movement however this didn’t progress into anything else, normally I would expect the level of physical activity to increase to push and pull people, but this didn’t happen. Some of the guests ventured into the Cells in the corners of the room.  In one was a female spirit energy that had lost her child (baby) whilst imprisoned.

Many of the guests felt their ring finger being pulled and those guests who stood by the main window didn’t feel comfortable.

At various times some guests smelt lavender and something they described as an “old” smell. When I stood by them I could smell pipe tobacco.

Within the cell many people felt an odd or strange sensation in their hands, which I had hoped would result in someone being touched but alas this didn’t happen.

The second group was predominantly female and this brought a different type of spirit to the room during the séance.

Lots of movement was felt by the guests, with Courtney (guest) being bent backwards over the map table and having her arms and shoulders stroked by other hands of the guests.

Other guests were twisted like ballet dancers and generally moved and pushed or pulled. Once again Ted felt uncomfortable and had to move within the room. Although this time I could see why as the spirit energy had changed from an affectionate gentleman who liked “good times” to a gentle female spirit energy who called herself by many names until she chose Maggie as the name that we should use to call her. For whatever reason Courtney then felt emotional for this spirit.

A little later in one of the Cells another spirit energy was present and was able to touch people’s hands, I wondered whether this was the same spirit that had made the other group’s hands feel odd. However Courtney felt her bum pinched.

Once again another enjoyable ghost hunt with lots of paranormal activity felt and experienced by the guests.

Landguard Fort ghost hunt – 11-4-2014

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Landguard Fort ghost hunt 11th April 2014
Felixstowe, Suffolk

Landguard Fort is one of our favourite locations that we always look forward to the event as there are so many rooms within the fort, many of which we haven’t tried anything paranormal. However on this particular evening we had split the whole group into four smaller groups and each group was as far away from each other as possible so that we shouldn’t have any noise interference.

Each of my sessions I chose a different room within the same area so that I would remember each group and the activity, mainly for writing this report, but to also try to use more rooms within the fort.

The first room I chose was one of the magazine rooms, I have held séances in this room before and after a slow start the spirit started to interact with us. The spirit was called Philip aged in his early to mid-20s, a boiler repair man from the 1960s. Philip first started to move some people’s hands and arms with eventually the majority of the guests feeling the sensation. Philip was able to use our hands to stroke the shoulders of other people in the circle and in some cases the faces of two particular guests.

The second group I took to the Caponier. This is always a cold place because it is semi-open to the elements and the wind can blow through the shooting apertures. We were joined quite quickly with a spirit called Thomas, aged in his early 20s, who had passed in a motorcycle road traffic accident in the 1980s. He told me that he left behind a wife and two children. He was wearing a white T shirt and jeans. Thomas quickly was able to move the majority of the guest’s arms which some guests found fascinating. Other guests who did not have much arm movement were pulled backwards; usually this happened as a surprise and quite quickly, especially to Angela and Lyndsey (guests).

During this séance I had the sensation of smelling Silver Nitrate which I know from my professional photography days, however this is not used in the photography business anymore and it has a distinctive smell. On asking the guests if they could smell anything, they all replied ‘no’. I then asked if any of the guests had used Silver Nitrate recently, one person said yes, and she had used it a few days before the event, she works in the medical profession. Silver Nitrate is not commonly used in any industry and certainly not handled by many because it is toxic and corrosive.

The third group I took to a different magazine room, this was in the second grouping of magazine rooms and an area which I have never held a séance before nor an area which any of our team have investigated before. We were joined almost immediately by a male spirit called Cedric who was about 65 years old. Whilst I asked for him to move our arms and hands, little happened at first although when people’s hands started to move, most found this surprising and a sensation which they couldn’t believe or understand. Many people questioning the person they were standing beside say “is that you moving”, the response every time was “no, I thought it was you”. This unnerved a lot of the group. Several others felt an unusual pain in the back of their knees, throbbing arm pain and in the case of one person a static buzzing sensation in his chest. Several of the female guests felt odd sensations in their legs and lower back when their arms were moving, no-one could really describe the sensation although they all agreed it was unusual and something they had never felt before.

The fourth group I took to some of the older areas of the fort, still a magazine room but these rooms in this particular part of the fort were probably the original armament rooms from 1880. We were joined by another boiler repair man, Charlie and a female spirit briefly joined us. Charlie was able to lift the hands and arms of everyone, as well as drag us down to the floor by our hands and used my hands to rub some of the dirt on the floor onto a guest’s boots.

I also took this group to the Caponier were I encountered Thomas earlier to see if he was still around. He was and he happily pulled the guests backwards much to their surprise, it was one of those sensations that at first it was a little scary because no-one knew who was going to be moved, but once it happened a couple of times each guest wanted more movement.

After we finished our four sessions, each group had then spent time with all of our team doing different activities and we then allowed the guests to conduct their own ghost hunt or to go into rooms that we had not used. I suggested to a group to go up onto the first floor to a room where I have seen and heard some odd things.

This group were asking for knocks to be repeated, but instead of knocks the door promptly slammed, which freaked them out as it was not at all windy and there was no obvious explanation of why the door slammed.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with lots of paranormal activity experienced by the guests and we look forward to returning to Landguard Fort later this year.

Fort Borstal Paranormal Investigation – 15-2-2014

Saturday, March 8th, 2014

Fort Borstal Paranormal Investigation 15th February 2014
Rochester, Kent

We arrived early to set up camera’s in the Officers Mess area.  This is a long corridor with six rooms, probably used for army personnel to work & rest.  Room 1 was set up to watch the four cameras.  We had cameras set up in room’s 4, 5 & 6, and one looking down the corridor.  The only equipment we had to use was hearing enhancers and electronic voice recorders.  Our aim was to gather evidence.

Group A sat watching the camera’s with Kerry, whilst I took Group B into the rooms.  In room 4 only myself was swayed back & forward.  Room 5 not too much, but one guest stayed in there whilst we moved to room 6.  That guest shortly joined us as he heard shuffling next to him, and an intake of breath as if someone was about to speak.  He had no hearing enhancers on.  The last room felt very different, all females being pushed/pulled/swayed.  Felt a lot colder in this room, was feeling cold spots, and one guest felt a cold touch on their hand.  Tingling feelings on head and face too.  Guests didn’t like the far right corner, feeling very uncomfortable whilst standing there.

After 30 mins we swapped – Kerry took Group A and they experienced swaying in rooms 4 & 6, although only myself and Kerry in room 4.  Someone heard whispering with the hearing enhancers on.  Another guest was touched on their leg.  Again this group didn’t like the far right corner in room 6.

After a short break we took Groups C & D.  I took Group C first and again we were experiencing swaying in room 4.  In room 5 I was sure I saw a male spirit standing in the far left corner, others were feeling uncomfortable in this room.  I then saw a shadow move a few feet away from that corner.  Time was approx 22.45 – not sure whether our camera was facing that way.  In room 6 many of the guests were swaying.

Jo then took group D first to room 6 – a loud noise was heard by someone with the hearing enhancers on.  When in room 5 they felt uncomfortable in this room.  In room 4 many were swaying again.

Whilst we were watching the cameras in room 1, the room suddenly felt extremely cold, starting with our backs, then eventually all over.

I then had Groups A & B again, and this time the focus was on EVP’s.  Jo took group A and one guest whilst standing in the front right corner of room 6 was feeling very sick.  When someone stood in the far right corner they felt static around them.  Also Jo & guests being swayed and pushed in this room again.  Whilst playing back their first EVP in room 4 someone asked “did you die here” and they were sure they heard a male “yes”.

I then took Group B, and when playing back our first EVP in room 4, we were sure we heard a male whisper after Justin’s (guest) question.  In room 5 before we started the EVP Lee (guest) whistled out asking spirit to copy.  No reply was heard but I suggested Lee do this again on the EVP, which he did.  Whilst playing it back we heard two whistles before Lee asked his question.  However, whilst wearing the hearing enhancers Lee heard a whistle after his question/whistle request, but on playing back again it was not heard, concluded Lee may have heard the whistle in ‘real time’ not on the recording.  We moved to room 6 and Karen (guest) was shoved back three times, she asked spirit for more, saying “is that all you can do”, but received no more.  However, she was the last person to leave that area when we finished, and whilst walking out she thought someone was walking alongside her, she looked but no-one there.  She had the feeling the spirit was escorting out.

Myself and Kerry took Group’s C & D for the final session of the night, however with both groups feeling tired, each time EVP’s were recorded, nobody could be serious and kept laughing.

A brilliant night – great fun and lots of very different experiences.

Pluckley Woods ghost hunt – 7-4-2013

Pluckley Screaming Woods 7th April 2013
Pluckley, Kent

Pluckley is a great place to go ghost hunting, but you need quiet and because of the popularity of Pluckley amongst local teenagers it is hard to find times when it will be quiet, fortunately for us this was one of those days.

Our first stop was a usual place for me and spirit energies often pass along this path. As I was explaining how to use the various different items of our ghost hunting kit high levels were seen on our KII meters although one of the communication devices wasn’t working how it was supposed to, whether this was the device itself or spirit interfering with it, we’ll never know.

A female energy approached the group cautiously although when she did come close enough she was happy to communicate via the electronic equipment, but not keen to divulge information about herself.

After a while I held a séance as there was a male spirit energy present. Although he wouldn’t tell me his name, he was in his late 50s, quite stocky build and had large sideburns and smartly dressed. This energy was able to move the arms of some of the guests and push and pull one of two of the guests. During the séance some odd noises were heard by the guests and me. These noises were not animal sounds, but more like the sort of noise a person would make walking through the undergrowth as the footfalls were sometimes quite loud.

The second location I was using my spirit box (a device that plays snippets of radio stations, running at 100ms and scanning the FM radio bands in reverse) We all heard “Hi”, “Hello” and “Me” but none of the questions asked got a definite response.

Whist we were listening to the spirit box several guests saw some red lights in the trees not on the path, which is a fairly common sight. As a guest and I were turning around to look back at the spirit box, we both saw strange white lights further along the path, these lights were much bigger than torch light and at the time it looked like car lights, which would be impossible because of where we were in the woods. However we all walked in the direction of the lights to investigate.

When we got to the end of the path, where it turned left and right and we didn’t see anything that could cause the strange white lights I decided to turn on the laser grid as this has proved to be successful in past ghost hunts. There were two spirit energies that approached us, a brother and sister, wearing no shoes and dressed in what some would describe as being “peasant clothing” and although they didn’t show up in the laser grid I approached them with a guest and asked that the spirit energies touch the guest. The guest felt tingling sensations in their hands and as their hand was held out they could feel the spirit energies touch their hands. Several other guests also came over to join us to feel the same sensations.

From here we moved back into the woods and into a much more dense part of the woodland. We were joined by Simon, a male spirit energy who was about 5’7” in height, with blonde hair and fair skin. He was quite muscular and 24 years old. He was from the 1950s.

We were all standing in a circle and I asked him to touch some of the guests, one guest in particular felt a tingling sensation around her face, neck and head as Simon said he would touch this guest. Many of the female guests stated that they had sore backs and all said that it felt much more comfortable when slightly bent over. This sensation has been reported in this particular part of the woods before on past ghost hunts, but it only seems to affect female guests.

Once again a productive ghost hunt with all of the guests feeling some form of physical spiritual and paranormal activity.
