Landguard Fort – 9th April 2016 – Steve

Landguard Fort ghost hunt 9th April 2016
Felixstowe, Suffolk

landguard-fort

I forget how many times that we have investigated this fort however we enjoy every one as the activity and the experience is different every time. There are many rooms here, which I still haven’t investigated or even entered.

For all my sessions on this occasion I held them in the guardhouse at the entrance of the fort.

We were joined by a spirit called George who was a Second World War soldier at the fort but lived through the war years and passed away at the age of 55. Plus, there was an older spirit from 1830s, also a Soldier in the Army and held the rank of Major. This spirit did not give his name.

In all sessions the spirit was able to move and manipulate people and in many cases pushed people to the floor and held some of them on the floor, unable to get up on their own.

This was all very amusing which seem to heighten the activity and the experience of the guests with more people being manipulated as time wore on.

The videos of the séance sessions can be watched at: –

This was another excellent ghost hunt at the fort with many people experiencing paranormal activity and having their own paranormal evidence in the free session. We look forward to our return in October 2016.

Fort Amherst – 4th March 2016 – Kym

Tuesday, March 8th, 2016

Fort Amherst ghost hunt 4th March 2016
Chatham, Kent.

fort-amherst-003

Area: Lower Gun Floor
Ouija & Table Tipping

With my first group we had a female spirit called Olivia come through on the Ouija, who may have come through to the guests at a previous event elsewhere.  With the table we only had slight movement, so switched to glass, and they were able to communicate with a General connected to the fort.  Back on the Ouija a male soldier had come through, and kept spelling N and Z.  Asking if he could spell he said no.  So asking spirit to try and communicate through us, we worked with yes/no.  We got the word “hang”, spirit had hung someone for doing something bad to his wife.  We asked if his wife could spell, answered yes, and she stepped forward.  However, all we got was O and Z, asking if they were from Australia – yes.  We asked if the spirits would join us for some table tipping and they said yes, so we did just that.  We had a lot of movement with the table rocking and moving a lot.  We were also feeling a lot of coldness around us, and the feelings of being touched.

With my second group we had a female spirit come through on the Ouija, that may have been connected to the guests there.  I joined two guests on the table tipping, but only had slight movement so with the other guests finished on the Ouija, we all tried the table tipping again.  We did have some slight movement, but had a little more from the glasswork, however we couldn’t determine who the spirit was.

With my last group we tried the Ouija first, and immediately had a male soldier come through, however couldn’t quite determine his name, age or year.  We did ask if he liked what we were doing and he said no.  Simon (guest) thought he saw someone standing behind me, asking spirit to take the glass to where he was standing, the glass went to me.  We then switched to table tipping, and had some incredible movement, with the table rocking fast, tipping and twisting at random.  Moving across the room too.  We were also asking spirit to copy our taps on the table, which we did hear and feel back.

With the free session I joined guests on the Upper Gun Floor, who wanted to do a human pendulum.  The spirit that came through was female that seemed to be looking for someone.  She was killed by her father, was also pregnant by her father.  We asked if she wanted any help but she said no.  The guests all were amazed that spirit were able to move them to answer yes and no, saying quite an odd feeling.

A fun night, with evidence of spirit coming through, and a lovely group of guests who were all willing to join in and participate.

Landguard Fort – 6th November 2015 – Steve

Friday, February 26th, 2016

Landguard Fort ghost hunt 6th November 2015
Felixstowe, Suffolk

landguard-fort

For this evening I chose one of the magazine rooms near to the Caponier told hold my séances.

We were joined in this room by two Second World War Army soldiers; Georgie and Frank, both aged in their early 20s and both wanted to have fun.

The first group didn’t get much in the way of physical movement, although we could hear lots of strange noises and footsteps.

The second group experienced lots of movement including pushing people against the walls and pulling them by their arms to the floor. Once again some strange noises were heard but no footsteps.

The third group all experienced their arms being moved and some people were swayed, pushed and twisted as well as being pulled to the floor. We have no idea if there were strange noises or not in this group since we were all laughing so much.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with everyone experiencing some form of paranormal activity either during the séances or one of the other sessions.

Marwell Hall – 24th October 2015 – Steve

Marwell Hall ghost hunt 24th October 2015
Winchester, Hampshire

marwell-hall-close

This was our fourth time at this venue and we were hoping that some of the previous paranormal occurrences would happen again to corroborate those occurrences. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen as expected although we did have an excellent night.

My séance circles were held downstairs in one of the rear facing rooms and we were joined by a spirit called Richard, a First World War soldier who was wearing puttees, he was 56 years old.

A female spirit called Alice aged in her 40s and a Nanny aged in her 20s were also present. There were also a number of spirit children in the room. This is unusual as I normally do not pick up children due to my dislike of them.

The first group experienced lots of movement, pushing, twisting and unusually we all ended up facing outward, when we started all facing inward. We had no idea how this happened. Towards the end of the session we all heard a child’s trumpet sound.

The second group also experienced lots of movement, but not to the same extent, this time it was just people being pushed and pulled whilst standing.

The third group however experienced lots of movement with everyone being touched, pushed, pulled or swayed as well as being pulled down to the floor by their arms and hands.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with lots of paranormal activity experienced by all those present.

Fort Borstal – 17th October 2015 – Steve

Wednesday, February 24th, 2016

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 17th October 2015
Rochester, Kent

fort-borstal-front

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Landguard Fort – 30th January 2016 – Louise

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Landguard Fort ghost hunt 30th January 2016
Felixstowe, Suffolk

landguard-fort

Equipment: Tech and Gadgets

Started the sessions in an area with 3 adjoining rooms, in the first room a male and female energy came through on the ghost pro. The male went on to tell us that he was in his 30’s and worked at the fort as soldier. The female energy told us that she worked as a nurse looking after the soldiers when wounded. All of a sudden a cold sensation was felt on the face f one of the guests and he felt very light headed. As this occurred, the door that joined the two rooms slammed very loudly. We then moved into the second room where Sean (team) had set up the laser grid to face the door that slammed. All the guests said the witnessed the lights going out at the bottom of the door as if someone was standing in front of it.

The second session was amazing as we all gathered in the bigger room because as soon as we entered the room we could here the EDI machine (EMF, Thermometer and Geophone) going off. Also all the K2’s were going off in sequence throughout the whole session and the temperature dropped significantly. Asking spirit to slam the door again as it did in the first session, it did so and at the exact same time a guest got pushed forcefully from behind. Two guests the stood against the wall so they could see if anyone in anyway were slamming the door. As they stood against the wall both felt like they were being pulled into the wall, with one guest literally pinned against the wall unable to move.

In the third session there was very little activity, so it was decided that we all move to the communication room. Setting up the equipment all the K2’s went off in sequence but only going up to amber. Gareth (guest) decided with some other members of the group to go into one of the smaller rooms leading off from the gun room. The K2 immediately lit up to red and remained on red. It was then decided that they try and get one of the heavy information plaques to start to tip. Immediately upon asking spirit to join us and move the table it started to rock back and forth really forcefully slowly moving round the room in a circle. All the way through the session the K2 that I was holding, spirit constantly lit up taking the lights right up to red and holding them there.

Landguard Fort – 30th January 2016 – Steve

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Landguard Fort ghost hunt 30th January 2016
Felixstowe, Suffolk

landguard-fort

Landguard Fort is one of my personal favourite venues. I always look forward to going here and using a different room or area since the site is so vast with many rooms that we have yet to experience.

For this event I chose two of the rear facing gun rooms, I had never worked in these rooms before so thought it would be a good place to be for the night.

The first group experienced a Boer War Soldier (1880) who had murdered his wife because she had an affair and subsequent baby with another man.

This spirit touched and moved just about everyone in the séance circle with guests being pushed to the floor and having their arms moved on command. One guest was pushed to the floor and was unable to get up until we had closed the séance circle.

The second group didn’t seem to want anything to happen, the spirit was able to move and touch people within the séance circle although many of the guests didn’t ask the spirit to touch them, yet were disappointed when they didn’t get touched.

The third group had loads of activity and we were joined by a Policeman (a Bobby) from around 1900 who was able to push and drag people by their arms around the room. Many times one guest was pushed into an old fashioned bike, the sort that would have been used by such a Policeman.

There was also an American Soldier from the Second World War era present who wanted to move people as well. This particular spirit was the one responsible for pushing people to the floor.

This was an excellent ghost hunt and we will be returning later in year to experience more spiritual and paranormal behaviour.

Upnor Castle – 31st October 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

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

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

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

Chelmsford Museum ghost hunt – 27th June 2015

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Chelmsford Museum ghost hunt 27th June 2015
Chelmsford, Essex

This was our first ghost hunt at this museum, although I had visited earlier in the year to see if it was suitable and spirit energies present. I had envisaged that I would work in a particular area come the ghost hunt but as it turned out I didn’t use the area I thought I would.

To start the event we held a tech and equipment session in one of the larger upstairs rooms, this was also one of the cooler rooms as it was June and quite warm outside. We also gave out traditional ghost hunting equipment; dowsing rods and pendulums alongside more modern equipment like KII EMF readers and Ghost Meter Pro’s which are essentially communication devices.

The first group session I used what used to be a drawing room in the old Oaklands House and we were joined by two spirit energies, one a small boy about 7 or 8 years old who was called Scott, the other a Doctor from the early 1900’s called Timothy or Tim. Various people in the group were moved by Tim, however he didn’t touch two people for some reason, but everyone else had either their hands lifted and moved or they were rocked or pushed, sometimes quite quickly to the floor.

The second group session I started in the same room and after some minor spirit activity where some people in the group had their arms moved or felt spirit touch them I moved to another room to see if the spirits would do anything different. The room I chose several people felt unsteady on their feet and although I wasn’t being affected directly, every time I moved closer to those who were, I felt sick and dizzy. Two guests in particular felt themselves being forced towards the floor and once on the floor they were unable to get up. They both reported that they felt pinned down.

The third group session I started in the main hall, which incidentally is where I thought I would hold my sessions. The spirit that was around us and affecting everyone was a First World War Sergeant who didn’t really tell me his name, just what I assume was a nickname “Tinney”. He was about 6 foot in height, of slim build and had a typical moustache for the time period. He had been shot in the neck but survived. Asking the spirit to move people resulted in many people being pushed, swayed, twisted and moved all around the room and onto the floor. Many occasions the whole group except one person ended up on the floor, sometimes pushed against the walls, sometimes against people, sometimes on their own (relative to the rest of the group). This was a fun session for both the spirit and guests.

This was an enjoyable ghost hunt and a location that we look forward to returning in November 2015

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 28-3-2015

Sunday, April 5th, 2015

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 28th March 2015
Chatham, Kent

Fort Horsted holds a special interest for us as a team as this was one of the first indoor locations that we investigated plus it was also the venue that we joined the US Ghost Adventures crew and filmed with them in 2012.

As usual I picked a room that was furthest away from the base room for all my sessions. All the group sessions in this room we were joined by a spirit called Andrew, he was a Second World War spirit who was tasked to load the shells onto the cartridge and shell lifts.

The first session there was also a female spirit who I have seen before in this room, her name was Annie and she was a nurse, however all the movement was caused by Andrew. He was able to lift and move the majority of people’s arms, twist them but when anyone asked him to move their arms he obliged. He was also able to rock, sway and move people, pulling them down by their arms to the floor, although for once no-one ended up on the floor. (I usually ask for this, but didn’t on this occasion). He also manipulated some people backwards, pushing them beyond the centre of gravity, a bit like moves from “The Matrix” film!

The second group to this room also had their hands lifted but the activity was less than the first group because half the group failed to get involved, we always say in the opening talk if you want stuff to happen you have to get involved, if you stand in silence then nothing will happen and that is exactly what happened with half of the group. Although one guest felt something brush past him, he likened it to a person tugging on his jeans, similar to how a child might.

The third group to this room, probably had some of the most interesting movement out of all the groups. Nearly everyone had their hands lifted and moved, sometimes on command, sometimes not! People were pushed backwards and swayed, rocked and pushed. Several times my hands were pulled to the floor and then “wiped” on the shirt of another guest, much to our amusement. Other times they were lifted as high as the guest could stretch.

After visiting the whistling tunnel where not much happened with any group we went into a room upstairs which is the reverse of the Hanging room, this is a room where the cartridges and shells would have been lifted into and then carried to the guns on the top of the fort. I have visited this room in the past but never for any length of time, but it is weird in here, so I took each group here on our way back to the base room.

We were standing around the room and listening to the wind outside, a spirit called Cecil joined us and he seemed to have a deformed left leg, it looked like a birth defect rather than an injury, he was also a Second World War soldier and he made everyone feel light headed and unsteady on their feet as many people were swaying and rocking. Jason (GHE camera) had to move away from the stairs as it felt he was being pushed towards them.

The second group to this room, myself and another guest felt like our feet were stuck to the floor a bit like the feeling if they were set in concrete. Cecil was in this room although I’m not sure he was responsible for this feeling. Once again some people were swaying although this time no-one felt any sensations of dizziness apart from Jason (GHE camera), who seemed to “Zone out” and when I shook him (as it looked like he was asleep standing up) he seemed disorientated and confused and said that he felt he wasn’t in the room. Later in the evening this happened to another guest who visited this room. I asked several times for Cecil or any other spirit to make a noise, several times we heard knocks in response to what I asked, sometimes the knocks were heard before I finished talking. We will try to confirm these incident from the video that we recorded.

The third group in this room had some odd experiences, one lady couldn’t climb the steps so Jason (GHE camera) stayed with her at the bottom of the staircase. We could hear them talking at times. Once again people generally felt strange in the room and when I asked for noises to be made in the room we didn’t hear anything, then we all heard the sound of someone with heels on walk away, at first we thought it could be the lady with Jason, until someone pointed out that she wasn’t wearing heels or shoes that could make that noise, then we heard chatter. When we left the room and met up with them both, neither of them were wearing shoes that could have made the noise we heard. Unfortunately we will have nothing to back up this claim as Jason had the camera (which was off) and was downstairs at the time and the both of them heard nothing. The chatter also wasn’t them as they had already left to head back to the base room.

After we had held three controlled sessions we left the guests to go off on their own under guidance from us to do their own style ghost hunt or to investigate rooms on their own. During this time we allow the guests to borrow our ghost hunting equipment. We checked up on various groups of people throughout the night, although this was made more difficult because of the time change from GMT to BST!

Many guests went into the room we used for various session and some felt the same sensations that other did. Especially the “Zoning out” sensation and the feet stuck to the floor sensations in the mirror to the hanging room.

All in all this was an excellent ghost hunt with some great guests who thoroughly enjoyed their paranormal experiences at Fort Horsted. We’ll look forward to seeing them again at other venues.
