Bicknor Church and Woods ghost hunt – 3-8-2012

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

Bicknor Church & Woods ghost hunt – 3rd August 2012

Every time we come here for a ghost hunt something different and interesting happens, either in the woods or near the church. This time however we had both.

Around the back of the church (in a field), which on previous occasions has been the scene of some very unusual and paranormal activity, we came across a female energy who would not tell us any personal information, but according to our communication devices we were standing on her grave.

Some unusual noises and whistles were also heard by the guests and the Ghost Hunt Events team.

Also whilst sat here we used the Ovulus and some words were heard in response to guests questions. There was also a very high level of KII activity as if the energy was walking to and fro from the church. Using our SB7 (a spirit box, which scans the radio frequencies in reverse at 100ms) we all heard “Hello” spoken.

Several of the questions asked were recorded for possible ghost voices (EVPs – Electronic Voice Phenomena) and there are some excellent spirit voices recorded. You can hear them at:-

As we were walking away from the car park, Stuart & Donna (guests) heard a sound which made them catch up with the rest of us, Stuart described the sound as being a metallic clanking sound, not like keys, but something heavier.

We then made our way into the woods, which were as usual very quiet with a distinct lack of animal sounds, which makes hearing any noises that much easier. There was also no wind to speak of either.

After setting up a laser grid pointing along the path, many people noticed that some of the lights were being blocked as if someone was walking across the path. Many guests felt unstable on their feet and several complained of swaying which was unusual because the path is generally flat.

Also in this spot there were brief periods of high KII activity. Whilst Carl & Marc (Ghost Hunt Events team members) carried out an EVP experiment, I walked further down the path to find a particular spot which on a previous occasion proved to be a rather active place and one in which many of the guests present felt uncomfortable as well as very high levels of spiritual and ghostly activity.

After walking the guests to the spot that I had just come from we held a séance to try to get the spirit energies that were present to physically move the guests.

We were joined by two energies, one a male energy called Roy who was 67 year old and a local farmer and Francis who was female and about 30 years old.

Gentle arm movement was felt by Wendy, Lloyd, Bradley and Stuart (guests) and when I asked for the energies present to push some guests Andy, me, Lloyd and Bradley all felt some gentle pushing. Several of the guests also noted that they thought they could see shadows moving within the woods.

During the séance and afterwards Andy was being drawn to an area to the right of where we stood, he kept looking in that direction during the séance and after we finished he had the urge to go to that area. When he got there he felt cold (it was a warm night) and also nauseous. Andy then called me over to see if it was just him. It wasn’t. I too did not feel right in this spot and although I cannot describe exactly how I felt, my head did not feel right, like I had just been shaken violently.

At this point Andy had to leave as he was feeling ill, the nausea had got too much. The rest of the group came over and with the communication device we established that this particular spot had been the site of a murder. The energy that was causing all the feelings was a male energy about 14-16 years old and he had been strangled and his body buried in the woods. He did not, or was not able to give a year and the audio recording from this area revealed no voices. Unfortunately the feelings I felt had got the better of my and I too had to leave the area as I was feeling the same sensations that Andy felt. Just before I left the area Donna, Stuart & Wendy all had a metallic taste, which is usually the taste of blood, they too felt the coldness and we all heard voices and footfalls in the direction of the path. But since I had to leave none of them wanted to stay there!

Carl also decided that he would investigate the area, but after a few minutes he too came back and reported that he tasted blood and said that the area did not feel right.

We decided that this was probably a good time to stop the investigation and made our way back to the Church.

Once again a very active and enjoyable ghost hunt with plenty of activity and some very clear EVPs (ghost voices) recorded.

The Lowndes Arms ghost hunt – 14-7-2012

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

The Lowndes Arms, Whaddon, Buckinghamshire – 14th July 2012

We were invited to investigate The Lowndes Arms by the Landlord & Landlady as they had many paranormal occurrences happen within the pub. The Landlord had seen a figure in the bar as had the Chef had some of his knives thrown and items move about the kitchen.  The Sun newspaper was also going to be in attendance in the evening to watch and participate in the ghost hunt.

We arrived mid-afternoon as we had brought just about all our kit to investigate this pub and had many hours of set up to do. As we were relaxing in the garden a couple of patrons were talking to us and they too had seen a figure whilst eating their lunch in the bar just a few hours earlier.

We started our base line readings at 8.30pm to establish what the pub was like before any spiritual activity took place. It is normal that before we start to place objects around a building and start to monitor any paranormal activities that the level of activity is lower, these readings in all the upstairs rooms were all within acceptable limits and nothing unusual was spotted or recorded. Temperature was about 21 degrees Celsius in all the rooms and 0.5mG (milli Gauss) of electrical activity.

We had setup six remote cameras which could be controlled and viewed from an area within the main bar and at the beginning of the night no-one seemed interested in what we were doing, however as soon as we turned on the monitors the whole bar was now either watching our screens or talking about ghosts!

From 10.11pm until 12.30am many orbs (light anomalies) and spiritual activity was recorded on our remote cameras, we had motion sensors placed upstairs and for no obvious reason these were being set off. Our KII Meters were showing high levels of activity and our MEL Meters recorded spikes. The majority of the team spent time upstairs within the environment to record and witness any spiritual activity and this ranged from; hearing footsteps of a wooden floor (the corridors were carpeted), hearing whistles, feelings of dread and despair, huge temperature drops and participating in some glass movement across a table. Some of the strangeness that we witnessed, including the EVP’s (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voices) can been seen at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL80BF45357295B4AE&feature=view_all

A strange photograph was also taken by us (see below). What we find odd is that the left hand side of the picture is in focus whilst the right hand side isn’t. We cannot find an explanation for this.

We started our séance circle with the reporter from The Sun at 1.30am in the biggest room upstairs, this room was directly over the bar. Almost instantly we were joined by a female energy called Angela who was 47 years old and she told me that she was a School Mistress from 1870s and worked in the local school. She was a very strict person and called us “Naughty little boys”.

During this séance there was some very gentle arm movement and some slight pushing felt by those present. We were also joined by two children spirit energies who I had spotted on my initial site visit several weeks earlier, although they did not enter the room, they stayed in the corridor.

We were also joined by a male energy called Timmy who was about 62 years old and a fairly portly gentleman and 5’6” in height. He was a local farm worker and passed away in 1917 in a farming incident. He told me that he was using a new piece of farm machinery and had been “pulled in”. He was a happy fellow and it was his energy that was responsible for the gentle movement of our séance circle.

During this séance I conducted an EVP experiment and many spirit voices were recorded after each person, however some of these voices could not be interpreted by our experts. The clearest recordings can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/OIkyPKbqxYg
http://youtu.be/9QQBVF5o0_8
http://youtu.be/lRW1q-uV6Ww
http://youtu.be/1McAtT2SZrI
http://youtu.be/KL5t1oHlf_E

The séance consisted of; Lee (the Reporter), Suzy (the Landlady), Sean (GHE Team), Kym (GHE Team), Marc (GHE Team) and myself. Also present in the room was Alex (The Sun Cameraman), Mike (The Sun Photographer) and Carl (GHE Cameraman)

We then had a quick break and then resumed the ghost hunt in two groups. The Landlord Jeff had joined us and Lee, Jeff, Sean and I started a Ouija board session. Kym, Carl & Marc went back upstairs to the large room to conduct their own vigil.

There was slight movement on the Ouija board but nothing very impressive as the spirit energy that came forward could not spell. However during this session we all heard various whistling noises. Sean contacted (via Walkie Talkie) the other group to check whether the whistling that we were hearing was them, but the sound of them whistling and what we had heard were different. The group upstairs also heard whistling and “screams” that we did not hear and although this was recorded by Carl none of these whistles or scream could be heard on the recording, but strangely the audio from the camera could clearly hear us downstairs.

Whilst we were trying to get the spirit energy on the Ouija table to spell their name we could all hear a breathing sound, Sean commented that had it been windy then he would have assumed that it was the wind, but it was a still night, there was no wind. Jeff commented that this noise was normal, although he had no idea what was causing it. To me the noise sounded like someone was asleep in the corner of the room and although we searched for the cause of the sound, nothing could be found. This was mainly due to the fact that it sounded different in different areas of the building, those in the bar thought it came from the restaurant area, whilst those in the restaurant though it came from the bar. Jeff confirmed that no electrical equipment was on that would make this noise. The only electrical equipment which was turned on was in the cellar but we could all clearly hear the cooler above the sound of whatever it was we were hearing. However what was strange is that when we became aware of the sound it lasted for about 10 minutes and then stopped and we did not hear it for the rest of the night.

The group upstairs heard many knocking sounds, taps, whistles and screams but none of this was recorded on any of our equipment. They also commented that at various time the motion sensor lights came on, yet on inspection of the remote camera recordings the motion sensors were not activated.

The ghost hunt finished at about 2.30am.

This was a very interesting ghost hunt as it is unusual that we have the time or the space to set up our remote camera system and monitor it for six hours. We feel that based on the evidence that we recorded it would be worth a re-visit later in the year to ascertain whether the phenomena that we witnessed is recurring paranormal activity or a one-off. We recorded over 27 hours of video and have numerous examples of light anomalies (spirit orbs) and other unexplainable activity recorded during the ghost hunt.

Pluckley Screaming Woods – 27-4-2012 (Paranormal Investigator)

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 27th April 2012

Arriving at one of the recognised spots, deep within the woods, where paranormal activity and past investigations have occurred, we briefed the guests on the basic use of various pieces of equipment, associated with “ghost hunting”.

The night was probably the quietest and stillest ever encountered without a breath of wind and clear, starlit sky with the beginnings of the new moon cycle. All in all, these conditions present an excellent opportunity to procure EVP recordings and remain totally aware of the surrounding environment. All that could be heard from the outset were the calls of owls in the distance!

Embarking on the “investigation” trail, several members of the group, armed with KII EMF Meters, Pro Ghost Meters, and similar equipment, noted readings from the outset, ranging from a mere 0.2 milligauss )mG) on the MEL Meter to a constant red light reading, simultaneously, on three separate KII meters.

These readings were of particular importance as there is absolutely no possibility of any background Electro Magnetic Field influence arising from electrically generated apparatus or power lines etc, so far into the woods themselves.

The Ovilus PX unit, a piece of kit specifically designed in the USA for “digitally dowsing” the surrounding atmosphere and environment, containing a pre supplied, vocabulary of approximately three thousand words, was also being utilised by members of the group.

Enabling spirit or astral presences, to “communicate” via this digital vocabulary, using full words, or even phonetically, the unit offers a great opportunity to support and substantiate other evidence gathered from equipment being used in tandem.

An excellent example of this liaison, on this particular vigil, was highlighted when the Pro Ghost Meter identified a “contact” and subsequent questioning by the guests, seeking a simple yes/no response. Establishing the name of the contact as “Tom” and the possibility that this contact was a highwayman, originally from the Leeds/York area, the Ovilus produced words such as “horses”, “York”, “Tom” and more.

Strangely enough, on this occasion, a PSB-7 unit, scanning white noise frequencies a short distance away, also blurted out the name “Tom” simultaneously! Coincidence or not, the resulting information and responses proved convincing to our guests who continued to make intermittent contact with “Tom” throughout the course of the vigil in this spot.

Most surprising of all, whilst using the Ovilus PX, the surname of two of the guests was called out from the unit clearly astounding all present! There is no explanation for this anomalous happening.

Grouping together for an hand held vigil and séance, myself and Carl remained outside of the Circle and moved off, approximately three to four hundred yards in another direction.

Carrying out several EVP’s, calling out as we walked, the resulting data appears to hold little of interest. Simultaneously, photographs were taken with no apparent anomalous results.

During the séance, we all clearly heard cows mooing in the distance, a strange occurrence to record, as the possibility of hearing this, so far into the woods, with any surrounding fields far too far away, is extremely unlikely, in view of the stillness of the night, absolutely no wind whatsoever and total quietness.

The sound ceased as quickly as it had started and was not recorded further for the remainder of the vigil.

I broke away with a small group (mother, daughter Sydney, father, and their son, who remained in the background and did not appear to want to participate,) and engaged in a very short EVP. As the recording was replayed on the spot, clear, class A audible whispering, of a female voice, could be heard saying “Aah! It’s Cold” and then almost immediately afterwards, “men are in the village”. Subsequent downloading and analysis of this EVP has resulted in some heated debate of the content and has now been posted on the GHE website.

Whilst the guests were taken to other areas within the woods, and calling out, EVP and photography continued, there does not appear to be anything further of any major interest from my perspective resulting, though my colleagues and, perhaps the guests, may well have provided something in the interim?

Red Lion Hotel – 14-4-2012 Part 2

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

RED LION HOTEL

INVESTIGATION NOTES SATURDAY 14TH APRIL, 2012.

Notes arising from the group investigations carried out by Marc Weston of Rooms 7 and 10 respectively.

Room 7 – First Group

After an initial, short briefing on the kit provided and its usage and perceived benefits etc, protection for all present was administered and a re-iteration of “investigative protocols” given with regards photo flash and personal/environmental experiences, sensations etc

Within minutes of entering the room and “settling” the clients down, several complained of “seasickness” and “a feeling of disorientation”. This was attributed to the unlevel floor surfaces within the room, effectively creating a slope running away from the bathroom entrance doorway, the door remained closed throughout the vigil. All lighting was out and as much artificial, background light source reduced or minimised to the best of my ability.

From the outset, people were acknowledging temperature changes and fluctuations both apparent and actual within the room. Checks made with a laser beam type thermometer and monitored constantly via the MEL Meter actually indicated a rise in temperature when clients were suggesting that a temperature fall had occurred. A strange anomaly to say the least! This aspect featured throughout the night, associated with all groups in this particular room/area??

One lady requested I monitor her surrounding ambient body temperature, head to toe. At her forehead a reading eight (8) degrees Celsius higher, was recorded compared to her feet/ankle area, where she complained of a “blast of chilled air” No explanation could be identified for this effect. No windows or doors were nearby to create/cause draughts and attendees standing either side of her recorded no variations in temperature or other sensations whatsoever?

Shortly afterwards, guests sitting on the bed edge, adjacent to the wardrobe reported strange “sensations” emanating from the wardrobe itself. MW advised those present that previous vigils in this room had always had similar sensations originating and emanating from the wardrobe area and specifically the corner of the room adjacent.

Within seconds, two individual reports were made alleging the sight of a black mass, moving at low level, “growing” from the corner. Indeterminate in shape and form, several guests suggested that the black mass was indeed exhibiting a human form though this cannot be confirmed or corroborated.

The K2 EMF Meter, held by a guest sitting on the bed edge adjacent to the wardrobe and the corner of the room in question lit up simultaneously. MW attended with an MEL and registered a reading of 3.3 on the EMF Scale, concurring and corroborating that “unknown, unexplained, EMF activity” was indeed underway. Further inspection confirmed that no electrical circuitry or apparatus etc was present or evident in the immediate vicinity.

Simultaneous reports followed from a gentleman advising he was experiencing a “numbness and tingling sensation” throughout his body. He then complained of sharp pain in his chest area and specifically, beneath his lower rib cage lower right hand side as if experiencing a “hard prod by someone or something, maybe even an attempted stabbing?” This cause discomfort and “concern” for a few minutes, until the effect/sensation passed.

A suggestion by MW to utilise a laser grid, to ascertain possible “activity” in the area identified proved fruitless, as new batteries installed less than an hour previously failed immediately when the unit was activated. A guest who had brought his own laser grid pen along, offered to enable his unit to be used, subsequently to also advise that his batteries, too, had also completely depleted without any explanation.

The EMF Ghost Meter proved exceptionally popular with the guests and numerous contacts were recorded. Yes/No questions resulted in “confirmation” that the astral presence/spirit evident during the Q&A sessions was indeed Alice Millar and a gentleman called “Julian”?

A, EVP exercise was undertaken and participated in by all present. Data and resulting details are still not fully analysed and will be forwarded onwards accordingly once identified and properly categorised, etc. Playback immediately afterwards indicates some possible response data

With minimal, additional activity and photography, identifying various orbs, physical “sensations of touch” likened to “an insect or spider crawling on my face”  the vigil was terminated and all present relocated to Room 10.

Room 10 – First Group.

Guests had fewer places to sit in this room and immediately noted a far colder temperature in this room. MW pointed out the window was open and that the heating had been turned down.

Those seated on the double bed, almost immediately began reporting “vibration and movement within the bed itself and throughout its fabric” Photos taken simultaneously illustrated orb activity above and among the guests being affected by this “phenomenon”

Several attempts at using the scrying mirror were made but insufficient background light proved almost impossible. An alternative solution to utilise the large, mirror on the rear of the room entrance door proved better and those attempting to incite activity had little to report other than “strange sensations” and a sense of disorientation.

The connecting cupboard space between the adjoining room 9 was occupied by several guests with a white noise generator running in the background and guests armed with an EVP digital recorder to assist with question/answer sessions. This data is still to be downloaded and properly analysed.

Participants of this EVP activity reported feeling strange sensations throughout their time in the cupboard and “physical contact/ touching” which was totally unexplained?

Tapping/knocking was heard collectively to the rear of the double bed headboard, where the exposed, glass fronted wall surface, is situated. This was achieved by request from MW and also voluntarily, and without request.

Strange “noises” were apparent, emanating from the adjacent en suite bathroom area, but these were discounted, as previous investigation has established the position of a boiler room, at roof top level, adjacent to the bathroom as the accepted source of such activity.

Room 7 – Group Two

The second group to participate in a vigil in this room/area appeared to be more analytical and ken to engage in contacts via the EMF Ghost Meter. From the outset, all emphasis was placed on the area in the corner of the room and the adjacent wardrobe unit. I must add that nothing was said about the previous groups findings and activities at this juncture, yet independently, the second group identified with and voiced very similar thoughts about the corner area and the wardrobe.

K2 meter was indicating amber on the light scale for lengthy periods, supported once again by MEL readings and temperature monitoring in support of the vocal claims of various guests.

Several claims were made by guests sitting on the bed, on the opposite side to the corner area, of “breezes” and a blowing effect” on their hair/facial areas. MW checked and confirmed that the windows were unable to open at all and that there was simply no apparent physical reason or explicable, logical explanation for this effect.

From the outset with this group, the EMF Ghost Meter exhibited unusual and extraordinary performance, rarely seen previously, though a similar occurrence was recorded during the last investigation at this site. Intermittent and sporadic flashing of the meter lighting, in response to questions was evident. Contact was apparent almost continuously, even to the extent that during mobilisation between investigation room areas, the meter continued to remain engaged.

One particular guest appeared to engage with the meter in a “special” manner. Questions to the responding light indicated that once again Alice Millar was present and with us? Questioning, indicated that she had died carrying an unborn child, was exhibiting “distress” “anger” and “was seeking help and assistance” We were told that her child had not joined her in the spirit world?

Two guests embarked on a mission to resolve and help the contact in her plight and MW was asked to provide assistance with moving the spirit on towards the light and reunite the contact with her unborn child. MW explained that better and more professional personnel had engaged in similar endeavours though several centuries without success. Indications are that Alice Millar is totally “grounded” and will haunt the building for eternity.

The group were collectively convinced that something or someone was “hiding “ in the wardrobe. Attempts were even made to enter the unit and close the doors to seek better clarification, etc, on the situation. This was not possible. However, throughout their endeavours, those involved, achieved amber readings on the K” meter

One gentleman advised that he had experienced a strong sensation of “something rushing bay or past him, resulting in a tingling sensation throughout his body. MW commented that he too had similarly felt a “rush of activity” simultaneously, culminating in a tingling sensation throughout his body also and a strong feeling of nausea. This sensation has been experienced by MW in this room and this area, on previous vigils, with other groups.

Several members of the group attempted scrying in the cosmetic mirror on the side table but no major effects were noted or recorded, however, when MW engaged in this practice, within seconds, he withdrew, noting “distortion and a black, hollowing effect, surrounding his eyes in the mirror face”

Another gentleman reported a “tickling sensation” to the side of his head and neck, very gentle but deliberate. Some time later, in the Tudor Room, during debriefing, this same gentleman advised MW that immediately after this vigil, he had gone to the WC and noted in the mirror, his necklace had turned in a full 180 degree half circle. He always fastens the necklace with the clasp uppermost at the rear of his neck. Without him knowing or feeling anything, and without this ever having happened before, this had clearly happened simultaneously with the “tickling effect” he had encountered in Room 7, earlier.

Room 10 – Group Two

Within minutes of entering the room, and at the specific request of MW for spirit to assist with audible footsteps or similar, within this room, all present clearly witnessed and experienced five (5) distinct and very audible footsteps, which appeared to traverse the room from the entrance doorway to the bathroom door area, at a fast running pace.

Most astoundingly, was the obvious mechanical pressure arising from this activity which physically created movement and “springing” of the timber floor area, which shook, as each individual step was heard, and appeared also to move/increase as the rhythm and pattern of the developing phenomenon unfolded. Everyone was left speechless at this “contact”

MW immediately followed up with grateful thanks to spirit for accommodating his request and asked for it to be repeated. Immediately, a large, loud, single bang/noise was heard in the corner of the room by all present, once again causing a ghast of amazement. No further audible noises were recorded during this particular vigil.

Two separate couples entered the cupboard space, awash with white noise and armed with a digital voice recorder. No data has yet been analysed arising from these encounters.

One female guest, emerging from the cupboard,, complained of “something touching her neck” likening the touch to that of a female human hand. When questioned, she stated she found the experience “unpleasant”.

During debrief in the Tudor Room, this same female guest, whilst recounting her experiences to me, asked if I had just exhaled deeply? Her husband, standing behind her as she sat on a chair, also confirmed he too had heard a lengthy exhaling sound.

MW assured the couple that he had not done anything resembling what had been heard/encountered. This episode remains unexplained.

Room 7 – Group Three

Accompanied by Carl Hutchinson on this occasion, filming with IR equipment, the group entered the room and immediately noted the “oppressive” atmosphere apparent in the room. Several also advised they sensed a “blowing effect” or “draft” on their faces and heads. MW once again confirmed that no windows were presently open.

As MW commenced calling out, reports of hair and face touching resulted and the EMF Ghost Meter was actiove throughout and responding well to questions, specifically those aimed at Alice Millar, the purported source from previous vigils.

MW took photos randomly which illustrated several large orbs above guests seated on the four poster bed. Filming everything in real time, Carl gave an elated squeal of amazement as filamentous orb activity was identified and tracked moving across the heads of guests on the bed. Several examples of such activity were successfully recorded.

Carl assisted in requesting spirit “copy” noises made over several minutes, knocking, tapping and whistling were all included. On one single occasion, though the outgoing whistle was two tone and in two parts, a single, monotone response was heard by everyone present and hopefully captured on the camera footage arising from, this vigil?

Tapping, within the fabric of the flank wall, in the area adjacent to the closed bathroom door, was heard clearly and on several separate occasions. All at the request of both MW and Carl. All guests witnessed and noted this phenomenon.

An EVP exercise was undertaken and data remains to be downloaded and fully analysed. Initial playback to guests suggests some vocal response does appear to be present.

During the various phenomena encountered in this vigil. MW, monitoring with a MEL Meter, once again recorded levels as high as 3.3 simultaneously, two (2) K2 Meters indicated amber readings, all of this data collection is clearly recorded and evident on the film footage captured during the vigil.

Once again, the focus appeared to fall upon the wardrobe unit and the room corner previously identified by both earlier vigils and by other investigations of these premises earlier this year.

Room 10 – Group Three

Contact gained with the EMF Ghost Meter was maintained once again as the group relocated from room 7 to room 10 and the strange “behaviour” of the meter continued once again, as previously described.

Ironically, no similar, audible evidence or data appears to have been gathered on this occasion, despite the previous groups encounter and apparent success. Knocking was recorded however, on several occasions, emanating from behind the bed, head board, area.

An EVP exercise was conducted and data remains to be downloaded and analysed.

Photos taken, and film footage taken by Carl on IR Camera, need to be scrutinised, though initial observations did exhibit orb activity in the room over the bed head board as on previous occasions.

Vigils and EVP exercises within the cupboard space ensued, and Carl advised that he would join someone in this area and film accordingly. Minutes later, Carl emerged to advise that his battery power had completely and unexpectedly drained to zero despite full and complete charging!

Reports ensued of touching and feeling incidents once again within the confines of the cupboard space, and, on this occasion only, despite the presence of white noise being generated at floor level, “strange noises” were heard in the cupboard space?

Carl confirmed the above.

The vigil ended and a basic free for all, access all areas ensued for guests for which no feedback, formal recording or notation has been provided.

Red Lion Hotel – 14/4/2012 – Part 1

Wednesday, April 25th, 2012

RED LION GHOSTHUNT – 14th APRIL 2012

WOW – what an amazing night with so many experiences for everyone;

1.  Group B
For my first group for the evening we started standing in the Bar & Restaurant, and immediately the EMF lit up showing spirit present.  We started hearing noises so sat down at tables to reduce our sounds and asked out to spirit to copy our taps.  As this seemed inconclusive we started a séance circle.  Some guests felt they were being pushed or pulled including myself.  Using the EMF to answer our questions all we could determine was it was a female energy.  Sean was filming and had to return to base for a new battery (which should not happen as it was a new battery) and immediately the guests started to feel movement, sensations and coldness.  A guest opposite me saw a shadow move in front of her, and myself and another guest started feeling a tightness in the chest and difficulty breathing.  I then started feeling very lightheaded and thought I was going to faint.  After unsuccessfully being put in the circle to recover I had to step away from the circle.  Feeling much better I observed the guests within the circle and guests were continuing to feel unusual sensations and coldness.

2. Group C
For my second group of the evening we remained in the Bar & Restaurant.  Again we had spirit showing us they were present by lighting the EMF.  We tried a séance circle but as nothing was happening we broke hands and moved to different areas.  We had little movement on the Ouija Board so tried glass movement on a table.  Four guests sat around a square table with their fingers placed lightly on an upturned glass.  By asking questions on the EMF we determined this was a male energy and immediately he started moving the glass around the table.  Guests were asking the spirit to draw shapes (ie. square, zig zag & triangle) on the table and move the glass to specified areas on the table which the spirit did.  The glass was moving around the table very fast.  We also asked spirit to twist the glass so fingers were tangled up, to which spirit did.  Whilst this was happening Carl who was filming started feeling sick and dizzy and asked me to continue filming whilst he stepped away.

3. Group A
Just before we started, my third group had heard a breath in their ears whilst in the Tudor Room on break so we decided to start in this room.  We started with a séance circle and immediately we had spirit present.  I felt like someone was holding my lower arm and asked spirit to do this to others or move my arm but had nothing more.  We then decided to try glass movement on a table, and it wasn’t until all the guests had put their fingers on the glass did it move.  I kept my finger off the glass, and all the other guests took it in turns to do this with the glass still moving, however often the glass would move to the person without their finger on the glass and wait until they had done so. We asked for shapes to be drawn which spirit did (ie. squares, triangles, zig zags & the number 8).  We then specified to spirit different sides of the table as a yes & no, and asked spirit questions.  We determined the spirit was female, a teenager, had brown hair & blue eyes, lived in Colchester but had never been to the Red Lion Hotel.  She had passed over within the last 100 years.  She liked having her hair made pretty.  She had no friends but had brothers and sisters.  Whilst asking her what things she liked to do, many of the answers being no, we asked if she liked dancing, with this question the glass flew so fast to no it went off the table and smashed on the floor.  We got another glass and apologised for upsetting her.  We then asked if she wasn’t able to dance and it went to no. We then asked if she liked to draw and she said yes.  One of the guests asked if her name was ‘Alice’ (a known spirit of the Red Lion) and as the glass moved to no I had the name Polly in my head, I asked spirit if this was her name and got yes.  We asked Polly if we should go to the Bar, replying yes.  We moved to the bar area and tried the writing planchet, a device similar to a Ouija Board allowing the spirit to draw.  With this Polly was able to draw a picture of a house for the guests to take home, along with a heart and a kiss.  We then tried the glass moving again and whilst we were starting this I was telling the guests of a previous event where the glass was being moved along the edge of the table, around the corners and underneath the table, and amazingly Polly attempted this.  She managed to move the glass around the whole of the rectangular table on the edge, even trying to move the glass under the table.  We thanked Polly for her fantastic efforts and finished for the evening. An amazing night – a fantastic venue – one of which I can’t wait to return to.

Bicknor Church & Woods ghost hunt 2-3-2012

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

Bicknor Woods ghost hunt 2nd March 2012

When we arrived at the church there was evidently a group of people in the church yard trying to experience ghostly activity or their own paranormal investigation, so instead of annoying them, we made our way down to the woods, which are far more active than the churchyard.

The evening was virtually perfect in my book for ghost hunting, thick fog and no moonlight, it made the woods seem even more dark and spooky than normal.

After walking for about 10 minutes I stopped where I recognised some of the trees from one of our previous excursions and we held a séance.

A male energy by the name of Roger joined us and he came across as being a flamboyant or theatrical type of person, as he was wearing what I call a flowing shirt, baggy and made of rich material. He looked very similar in appearance to Russell Brand!

Roger however told me that he was a carpenter and worked in Chatham during the 1870s and he was 27 years old. Roger was a fun loving spirit energy and he proved this by manipulating Russ (guest) and my arms and generally making people laugh as he made his way around the circle.

Another male energy joined us, a farmer 70 years of old who first told me his name was Gerald and then Geoffrey, whether this was his full name I do not know. Although in the following EVP experiment he did clarify.

Both the spirit energies physically moved guests, Russ was pushed into Kim and Simon was pushed forward much to his surprise.

Simon also commented that he saw red sparkles of light further along the path and behind me during the séance.

After the séance I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) or ghost voice experiment. Usually we get maybe one or two possible EVPs from this experiment but on this occasion I recorded eight questions and six had some response, four of which could be very easily understood. The second one below is probably the clearest EVP I have ever recorded.

After walking a little further along the path I decided to divert from the main path and into the woodlands beside some very old trees, it was a similar patch of ground that the very first time I came here that strange things happened during that investigation. Strange things happened on this one too.

After attempting to use my laser grid, which although was interesting, didn’t prove to be very useful as the fog and mist distorted the laser, or rather the mist highlighted the beam from source to whatever the beam hit, it looked like a giant spiders web.

We formed another séance circle, Roger from the first séance came back and this time he was smoking a pipe. There was also another male energy called Tom or Thomas who was from 1500s and he told me that he was a settler and lived nearby to these woods. His clothing seemed to be all homemade and held together with twine.

First of all the spirits started to move everybody’s hands and arms and gave some guests a gentle push forward or pulled them backwards, then Russ exclaimed that Adam (guest) face looked whiter than normal, admittedly he was wearing all black clothing, but his face did seem to have changed to those who were opposite him. Russ even commented that he could see defined features on Adam which were not Adam’s. Several of the guests also saw red and white lights in the distance which were generally behind me and Adam, not torch lights but small pin pricks of light. Shadows were also seen behind me.

At one point Russ thought he saw someone poke their head out from behind a tree; however this could have been some branches that were attached to the tree. There were many noises heard by everyone, these noises sounded like footfalls rather than animal sounds.

Adam decided that he would leave the circle, and as soon as he did then the movement felt by all the guests increased dramatically, guests were pushed over and across the circle and the majority of peoples arms were raised to the same level.

When I announced that we were leaving the woods and asked spirit to do something memorable as a finale, the spirit activity surged and suddenly we were all being moved in some way, some guests were pushed on to the ground, unable to get up of their own accord and then as soon as we have composed ourselves we were pushed to the point that everyone got tangled up in some sort of ghostly game of twister!

Guests saw green lights against the church when we were standing beside the road and some guests noticed that a strange coldness seemed to come from the direction of the church.

Once again this was a very interesting ghost hunt and one which the spirits seem to enjoy as much as we did, the level of activity felt by the guests is probably greater at this venue than any other of our outdoor ghost hunts.

Barham Court Ghost Hunt – 15-10-2011

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Barham Court is a strange place, because it has been converted into offices you would be wrong to believe that this place held no spiritual activity, in fact it is a very active place, but not in the offices which would have been the living areas of this mansion. It is strangely active in the corridors and what are now the public areas of the building.

We started our first session in the basement, however whilst it felt active there seemed to be no signs of activity on the EMF metres I had and some of my guests, we then proceeded to go up to the top floor where in one of the offices a male energy made himself known to me. His name was Edward or as he preferred Ted and he stood approximately 5’9” in height and wore the most horrendous Tartan suit I have ever seen anyone wear, it seemed unusually bright and it did not help matters that he also looked like a mad professor with wild grey hair. I found it very difficult to take him seriously. However after about 10 minutes very little spiritual activity had been heard, seen or felt we decided to go down a floor.

On the landing a male energy stepped forward he was a Doctor who treated patients in WWII, as Barham Court was used as a hospital during both wars. His name was David and although he was aware of our presence he seemed reluctant to engage with us at first. However as the night progressed he “popped in” more frequently. Also on the landing there were two children running up and down, a boy named George and his sister called Cecile or Celia, both were aged about 6-7 years old. Whilst holding a vigil here were heard many strange noises, it felt and sounded like people approaching or rushing up and down the main staircase. Many guests photographed Orbs and light anomalies on their cameras. The stairs and the landing was without question the most active and many cold spots were felt by all. I became aware of a maid who was standing on the staircase and whilst most of us were standing at the top of the stairs I clearly heard a male voice say “I have nothing” which I thought was strange and asked who of the group said such a thing, but according to everyone no-one had said anything as they were at the time listening for footsteps, which could be heard.

After a short break we proceeded to split up and various people investigated either on their own or in small groups, with Ouija boards and EMF metres. Many of the guests reported that during most of the night the EMF metres hardly reacted at all, however one group who were on the staircase landing had some very unusual EMF activity, the lights pulsed through each light individually, which is supposed to be impossible. I stayed on the ground floor and started to use a glass to communicate with a 9 and a half year old boy whose English name was Simon and his real name was Simian. He had dark brown hair and was wearing what could be described as a school uniform, with grey shorts and socks and black shoes. He gave me the impression that his father was convalescing at Barham Court and he was accompanying him. He also gave the impression he had something to do with mending watches. Through the glass Simon told us that he passed with Rickets or Polio and he had something wrong with his legs, he was born with it and that he had been kicked in the head by a horse whilst he was at Barham Court.

During this period many people heard footsteps outside on the main corridor and shadows which passed by the lights from the corridor, yet on every single inspection no-one could see anyone who could have caused the shadows or the footsteps. We all heard the sound of mumbling, which seemed to be coming from the next room, however as soon as the door to our room was opened the noise stopped. It could not have been the wind because it wasn’t a windy night. It was still. Also whilst we were in this room and whilst Simon was communicating through the glass many guests and myself heard taps or knocks on the floor and walls, which we could find no reason or source for. Everyone reported different directions when we heard the taps and knocks yet we were all sitting within about 8 feet of one another.

Whilst some people were outside they all reported that flashes of light were seen (like a camera flash) in rooms that we had no access to and whistling which also had no explanation. Many guests had the sensation that Barham Court housed lots of children, like a school, although no-one knows whether this is true or not.

A very interesting Ghost Hunt and a place which we may return to investigate further, as the spirit seemed very reluctant to step forward immediately, they seemed to want to inspect us first before committing to communication with us. It was like they needed to decide whether we were trustworthy before they would communicate.

Rye Castle ghost hunt 2nd Group – 17-9-2011

Saturday, September 24th, 2011

 Kym, Lynn, Lee & Amy

Investigation 1 ~ We started with a séance circle upstairs in the Women’s Tower calling out to spirit to come forward. Immediately we had a young girl called Megan with her two year old brother Toby. She said they shouldn’t be there, did nothing wrong. We sensed Megan would sing and read to her brother. Then we heard a very loud bang next to us, which we felt came from someone banging the large storage box in the room. Nobody was capable of doing it, we were all holding hands, and nobody had moved. After we had all recovered we asked out who had made that noise, and sensed a ‘Lady of the Night’ present, her name was Rula. She wasn’t nice to look at, whiskers on her chin and a wart. When asked who’d want to pay for that, she replied with, someone had to. We continued to hear noises around the room, and a sigh. We then dropped hands, and Lynn took her necklace off to use as a pendulum. This was moved in different ways, vibrating and bending in the middle, very unusual. Shortly after this the EMF lights were lighting up, and a tap on the closed door was heard. We then left the room, and on leaving the downstairs room we heard a tap on the wood.

Investigation 2 ~ We started with a séance circle in the upstairs of the museum. We sensed a male energy, who came forward and started moving us, swaying us in different directions. He looked scruffy, dirty and not nice. Then Lynn got pushed to the ground, and being unable to get back up we broke the circle to recover. We then repositioned ourselves and asked the spirit to give his name, but all we got was you can call me ‘sir’. We sensed he was the big boss and would beat and rape the prisoners. We felt cold spots, and when checking the temperature after it was 17 degrees initially, rising back up to 21 degrees as we watched. During the séance Lee was standing very straight and said he felt very angry. Lynn was also feeling the same. Lights were also seen in the room.

Investigation 3 ~ We went to the walled garden hoping to hear footsteps on the gravel as the earlier group had, but unfortunately nothing.

We all had a fantastic night, and can’t wait to return.

Deal Rifle club ghost hunt – 27-8-2011

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Deal Rifle Club ghost hunt – 27-8-2011
When I was approached by a member of this club to “have a look” I wasn’t expecting much, because of the nature of the place (they shoot guns) I wasn’t expecting spirit to be very active. I was wrong, this is an active place and we certainly were not disappointed throughout the investigation.
This venue is probably the smallest I have ever investigated, basically there are two rooms. The club room for teas and coffees and the shooting lanes. The rifle range room is 25 yards long, so there was space. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I certainly did not expect to have the activity that occurred.
We started with a séance in the rifle range, I became aware of a young male energy who was dressed as a WWII soldier although his uniform looked different from UK soldiers and when he gave me his name it became apparent that his was Swedish, unfortunately I cannot remember who to spell his name it was quite long and unpronounceable in English. The soldier was about 5’6” in height and he started moving the hands of Justine, me and Christine. At the same time Andy was also being moved gently.
Lynn picked up on another male energy, he was in his early 60s and I could see him dressed in a plain blue boiler suit, Lynn got the name Bert. Bert started by gently moving the arms of John & Lynn. Whilst this was happening Justine and myself heard what sounded like footsteps, at one point we heard a metal clank and then about 7-10 footsteps. Everyone heard this and John asked whether we had shut the outside door, because it sounded like someone had entered the building and walked down the passageway. (Which was adjacent to the room we occupied)
We asked if it were Bert who was making the noise (1 tap for no, 2 taps for yes) and we all heard two taps. Lynn asked many more times for Bert to tap, which he did, some were more audible than others, but generally everyone heard those taps. During this I (and others) heard metal sounding taps coming from the far end of the room. The pellet collectors and baffles were metal, however we could not establish what was making these noises at the time because of the noises which were coming from the wall that separates the corridor and the rifle range.
Whilst all this was going on some of the guests were more vocal than others and I had noticed that Marc who would usually have said something, especially about the noises, remained very silent. After asking him if he was OK for about the third time and having no response I decided that he may have been in trouble, so I proceeded to stand behind him holding the arms of the people who were next to him, thus placing him effectively in the middle of the circle. Marc then immediately stated that he was OK. However afterwards he explained to me that although he was aware of what was going on he could not respond at the time, he also felt that his chest was tightening from the back and his legs had just locked up. Below is how Marc described the feeling in his own words.
“I felt as if the whole of my back, shoulders, neck, head and legs were being “forcibly pressured” horizontally and downwards from my shoulders, whilst experiencing a strange tingling sensation’ likened only to a mass pins and needles effect, in all of the aforementioned areas, almost rendering me paralysed! I felt cold and squeezed and experienced the sensation of a difficulty in breathing. At the point I realised you were standing behind me, forcibly parting my hands from those of my neighbours in the closed circle,I began to recover my senses and total awareness of my surroundings. I felt the presence of a female, nothing malevolent or oppressive, who sought merely to experience the sensations of my physical being. I have encountered this once before but with slightly different results and it was a male entity on that occasion. I have suffered no after effects whatsoever.”
Many guests experienced cold spots, the room was effectively sealed against drafts. It was the amount and volume of the tapping however that made all of us generally speechless, because at first these sounded distant, no-one could be sure which direction they were coming from. But as the taps became louder they seem to originate from the separating wall.
I asked Bert (the spirit) to tap twice in quick succession and then we would leave him alone and take a break. Almost instantly we all heard two very loud taps.

 

After a coffee break, we all assembled back in the rifle range, although I wasn’t expecting spirit to top the experience, but nevertheless we tried various experiments. I had set up my laser grid, in the hope that if spirit could walk in the room the laser light would be affected and I had placed my two EMF (Electromagnetic Force) Metres at the lower end of the room. Marc also had his EMF closer to the shooting area. Just after setting up the laser grid the laser seemed to twinkle, it isn’t supposed to do this, although looking at a laser is not a good idea, but it seemed as if the laser light was fluctuating, which it shouldn’t because the batteries were new and no one was holding the device.
A female energy had joined the group and the group were generally asking questions and getting some responses, but nothing like what happened in the first session. However Marc threw some of his flashing LED balls in the hope that spirit would throw them back. But as Marc and I became aware that where the pellet collectors were situated was generally where we were hearing some odd tapping sounds. When Marc and I were standing close to the baffles we both heard many taps, although later Sean came down to the same area and he noted that it sounded like the plastic lights. I however still believe that some of the noises were the lights but some were definitely metallic in nature. Since Sean was filming and I was recording with my audio recorder I am hoping that I can isolate and compare the two noises to see if the early sounds were those of the lights or metal. What I don’t really understand is why the lights would be making a noise (like cooling down) because they were not turned on all evening.
Marc recorded that there was quite a large temperature difference between the two ends of the room. Where we were hearing noises was 16 degrees Celsius and a few minutes prior to this activity the temperature was 19.3 degrees Celsius. There was no obvious reason for this sudden drop in temperature.
After this some people tried using a Ouija board with some mixed results and I was using a writing planchette. We had a female energy come through who couldn’t spell or write, but she could draw, through some careful question asking I managed to ascertain that she passed in 1749 and was killed at 37 years old due to her own brother, she was married with children. She was able to draw squares, circles and basic shapes and when each one of us on the board imagined or drew a shape that the others could not see the spirit responded by repeating the shape on the paper.
All in all this was a surprisingly good ghost hunt with hopefully some useful evidence captured (the camera footage & EVP recordings have not yet been fully analysed). But one which would be good to repeat just to see if the tapping sounds occurred again.

Wychling Woods ghost hunt – 26-8-2011

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Wychling Woods ghost hunt – 26-8-2011
This was a private event for more than one purpose, but generally this is one of the scariest places in Kent. I have conducted two ghost hunts here and both times it has been amazing.
We started the evening in what I would call the scary location, after some varied photo taking by the guests and some orbs captured we started a séance circle to try to get spirit to move people and give them personal evidence.
Within a few minutes a male energy stepped forward, he was in his early 20s, of slim build and stood approximately 5’9” in height. This energy was reluctant to give his name, but he started by moving the hands of Mia (guest) and me and then shortly after Mia and Chloe (guest). Mia at this point I think it is fair to say was somewhat freaked out and generally really scared, although in my opinion there was nothing to be scared of, but then I do this all the time.

Mia could not believe that both her arms were being gently moved.

The male energy then moved around the circle, and many people commented that they could see lights, which could not have come from the road as the woodland is too thick for light to shine through the trees.
Graeme (guest) had what he called a sick stomach, but he stated that it felt tight like he was about to be sick. No one else had experienced this pain. Then the level of spiritual activity increased, a level of which I haven’t seen for some time. Mia’s alarm (on her phone) was ringing, which she stated at the time she didn’t set, because she knew she was going to be doing this ghost hunt.
Scott and Debbie (guests) both felt something brush past their faces. However Scott is 6’ in height and Debbie is about 5’ in height and therefore it could not have been a branch of a tree, as there were no branches that could have brushed past their faces at this height.
Graham (guest) and I were being pushed forward with such force that the only course of action was to step forward, it was at this point that Debbie broke the circle because she felt the brush past her face which she said really scared her.
As I said to everyone, “let’s drop hands” I reached down to my utility belt to find my torch, when I noticed that my belt had come undone. It was if it happened at that moment, because this utility belt has a special clip, where to undo it you have to use both hands to press the top & bottom catches and press the button in the middle. I heard no noise (it clicks when undone) and more importantly this belt carries all my equipment and is quite heavy it would have normally dropped to the floor, but on this occasion it didn’t. Very strange.
When Mia checked her alarm had been set to 23:23, which not only is an odd time, but she swore she did not set it. Was this spirit activity?
After conducting an EVP experiment and more photo taking and exploring this part of the woods, we moved to an odd area, the ground here feels (by walking on it) made up, something recently buried or a hole filled in.
Once again we held a séance circle and asked for spirit energy to step forward, within a few minutes three brothers stepped forward, they were of slim build and gave their name as Taylor (which I assume is their surname).

They gave me the impression that all three passed away in a farming accident, something to do with a thrashing machine, the year they gave was 1927.
It didn’t take long for these energies to start on the group and Graeme, Mia and I felt a massive pressure on our shoulders and our arms that wanted to drag us downwards. At first the energy was centred on me, but as we were all double bent it was hard to say who was feeling the most as we were all trying to fight back because none of us wanted to fall in the mud, but the energy was very strong. After a couple of tries, we managed to lift ourselves up.

However this was short lived, because the next wave of pressure we were heading downwards again, this time Chloe was involved. After about 15 minutes we were able to stand up once again. Then the spirits decided they were going to move our arms and the four of us who were pushed now were moving our arms. When I torch light came on, the rest of the group found this to be very entertaining. Once again Graeme, Scott, Sean, Kym & Graham (guests) all had stomach pains, the four of us who had been moved had no pain. Laura (guest) who was standing outside the circle heard lots of noises, according to her some of those noises sounded like someone walking through the woods, however no one ever arrived and it would be very difficult to walk through these woods without a torch.

Laura thought that there was someone standing beside her, until she called out the name of the person (Toby) and he answered several people abreast away from Laura. Many noises were also heard by most of us, some were odd, others very unusual considering it weren’t windy or raining, but there were several knocking sounds.
Mia also reported that her hair had been tugged and then without any warning she was pushed backwards with such force that Sean and I had to hold on very tight otherwise she would have fallen over. However the spirits were determined that she was going to fall and eventually Sean and I could not hold her anymore and we had slipped in the mud and she fell over.
This was a great ghost hunt and it is unfortunate that a public event could not be held here, because I firmly believe this is one of the scariest locations that I have ever investigated and I cannot wait to return some day.
