Colchester Town Hall – 5th November 2016 – Kym

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 5th November 2016
Colchester, Essex

The town hall in Colchester is a fantastic venue, many areas to explore from the basement to council chambers and offices, to the flat on the top floor, with a lot of interaction from spirit.

I was on the top floor doing a séance circle and human pendulum, and we started of with the circle and having some gentle movement for some, a bit more energetic for others.  When we did the pendulum we were able to communicate with spirit, and found out that initially we were talking to a male spirit, then we had a 13 year old girl who was his daughter.  Her name was Sarah, and she and her mother were witches.  She was brought to Colchester to be burned at the stake, and her father was the one that started the fire.  Some people in the circle were feeling heat, others were feeling coldness.  We had asked spirit to make a noise in the room, and just as we were finishing there was a very loud bang on a table leaning up against a wall, which made many jump!

With my second group we had a little movement in the séance circle, but then switched to the pendulum.  The spirit that was with us had come with the group from the previous table tipping session.  Gareth (team) had been with that group too and had joined us.  The spirit was Charlie age 56/57 and had worked as a prison guard at the town hall.  One guest wanted to know how he passed, so I asked everyone to clear their minds, and I asked Charlie to give the last feeling/pain he had before he passed.  One guest felt a pain in their chest, and yes Charlie had passed with a heart attack.  Charlie had passed in 1923, and had fought in France in WW1.  He was married with three children, but had a fallen in love with an English nurse whilst at war.  She had died there and Charlie was heart broken.  He did come home to his family, and did tell his wife of his sadness.  The next spirit that joined us was someone from our kit session at the start of the evening.  We had the following information come through on the Ovilus: Jim Murphy shoot, and the spirit that was with us was Jim Murphy.  He had shot someone, then he had been shot in the head.  He had passed age 28.  We felt this energy was very strong so switched back to a seance circle, and asked the spirit of Jim to move us.  Initially we had some very gentle arm movement, then noticing some were being pushed/pulled down to the floor, I asked spirit to push everyone down, and yes we were all pushed down to the floor!  When I asked spirit to move us all back and step away as our session had finished, we all returned to our original positions.

A fantastic night, with all the guests interacting with the spirits brilliantly, and therefore all having some lovely personal experiences.

Colchester Town Hall – 28th November 2015 – Louise

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 28th November 2015
Colchester, Essex

colchester-town-hall

Area: Kitchen and adjoining rooms
Equipment: Table tipping / dowsing rods

Session 1: group C
I started this session in the Kitchen area. Working on two tables it was decided that the group split into two smaller groups so there was an even number of guests on the table. I explained to the guests to put one hand lightly on the tables and I stood on the middle of the room and called spirit forward to come and move the tables in some way. Initially there was no movement, one of the tables then started to gently rock back and fourth but no more movement even with encouragement from the group. At this point the guests decided to split up and take the tables to separate rooms to see if the spirit activity would be stronger. One group had no movement at all from the table even with my encouragement and theirs. So I decided to try the group with the dowsing rods. After explaining how they work to the guests showing a movement for yes and a movement for no, they all began to get activity and all started to asks questions. A couple of spirits came through that of a little girl and male spirit in his 50’s. However no more information was received. In the other room the group had the table moving and the K2 that I had placed on the chair was lighting up. I asked spirit if they could possibly light the K2 up to amber and hold it there and it did so, a which point the table started tipping on to one leg and spinning round really fast. All the guests started laughing and the K2 lit right up to red. After some more encouragement from the guests the table started to walk and went out of the door and right along the corridor stopped for a while and then walked straight back into the room. As the activity from spirit was so great, I decided to ask the guests if they would like to move one of the bigger tables in the room. The table I can only describe as a long school dinner table. We all placed our hands on the table and immediately the table started to tremble. Vanessa and Marie (guests) called out to spirit to ask possibly if they would move the table for us instead of making it tremble. Then all of sudden taking us all by surprise it started rocking really forcefully back and fourth.

Session 2: Group A
This group were the VIP’s being looked after by Kym (Team). It was decided that we all start the session back in the Kitchen area. Again initially the tables didn’t move, so I asked the group to encourage spirit to move the tables to which they did. Both tables slowly started to move just gently rocking back and fourth. Kym (Team) then decided to take a group into another room. My group and I stayed on the table in the kitchen as it had really started to move. The guests asked spirit to show them more with table to prove that they could do more. A this point the table tipped up on to one leg spun round in an anti-clockwise direction and walked us out into the corridor and straight into the other room where all the activity had taken place on the first session. The table walked right up to Kym’s group and stopped. Both tables then stopped moving. But we noticed that the K2 was lighting right up to red. I asked spirit to take it back down to the green light which it did, then asked if they would take it back up to red if we moved into the kitchen area and move one of the big tables in there, it shot straight up to red. After placing our hands on the table and calling out to spirit the table completely spun round in a full circle. We could not believe that this was happening. The table then stopped and we could here taps, bangs and scraping noises coming from under the table and we could also feel the vibrations through our hands. One of the guests asked spirit if they could possibly do that again for us and it did so straight away. At this point I and one other guest saw a shadow figure pass by the doorway. We went to investigate and the temperature in the corridor had dropped significantly.

Session 3: Group B
This session was started in the Kitchen. Initially there was no response from spirit even with encouragement from the guests. The table then stated to move very slowly rocking then suddenly started to spin went up on to one leg and held this position. With encouragement from Janet (guest) the table started to walk out into the corridor and down the stairs. This amazed the guests, so as we were getting a lot of activity from spirit, Janet (guest) decided that we move on to one of the big tables that I can only describe as a school dinner table. The table immediately started to rock back and fourth forcefully. At the same time during the session a number of guests saw shadow figures walking along the corridor and disappearing into the other room.

Town Hall ghost hunt 28th November 2015
Colchester, Essex

colchester-town-hall-front

The Mayor’s Parlour – Pendulums, Ouija, Writing Planchette

At the start of my first session we began by using the pendulums, and each guest had movement although some were taking longer to get going than others. Most of the guests established their yes and no directions and were communicating with spirit either out loud or in their heads.

We didn’t have much movement with the glass when doing Ouija, as it seemed spirit did not want to communicate in this way and kept moving the glass to goodbye.

We did however have a very successful session with the writing planchette, as it started moving more or less straight away, and was continuously doing so around the paper. We kept asking spirit to draw something for us or write their name or initial, and when we looked at what had been drawn, it looked like a bird. We also had a lot of activity on the ghost pros, and it was as though two different spirits were arguing with each other, as one kept contradicting the other. During this time, we started to hear taps on the table next to us where no one was sitting. I then asked spirit to copy my taps, to which it immediately did so. Guests were amazed by this, and a few of them also did some taps, to which spirit once again responded.

In another of my sessions spirit drew the letter J and the letter I with the writing planchette.

During my final session we contacted a spirit named Robert via the Ouija. He told us he was from 1865 and had a wife called Gill and a 6-year-old son, Anthony. He then told us that his son was strangled by a man called George, so Robert killed George and then killed himself by running under a horse and cart. He said that George was always with him tormenting him, and that they are both bad men. We asked Robert if he had a message for us, and he spelt out “will see you”. When asked if he meant he will see us in the cells downstairs, as this is where we were planning to go afterwards, he responded with yes.

At the end of the night we had a free session so we went down to the cells, and myself and Kym held a séance with the guests. Some of the guests including myself were being pushed slowly to the right and a couple of people’s arms were raised. We also heard some whistles, which sounded like they were coming from one of the cells.

Colchester Town Hall – 17th April 2015 (Kym)

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 17th April 2015
Colchester, Essex

Area: Council Chambers
Equipment: Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Tech Equipment

Group C – We started by using the rods & pendulums, everyone chose one and started getting movement.  Once they had established their yes & no movements, they were able to ask the spirits some questions.  We had male & female spirits with us.  Marc (guest) whilst sitting in the mayor’s chair saw a large black shadow in one corner of the room, he placed a KII there but didn’t see any lights go on.  It wasn’t until I was talking to Edward (guest) later, he had felt a coldness next to him at the same time, in the same place as Marc had seen the shadow.  But when Marc had put the KII there it had disappeared.  Karen (guest) wanted to go to the Upper Gallery, and whilst there had a female spirit with her.  Just before I left her on her own there, I had the name Catherine given to me, asking spirit if that was her name using the Ghost Pro, it confirmed yes.  I left Karen talking to the spirit with her pendulum & ghost pro and she was able to find out the spirit had been murdered here by her husband, who had also killed their children.  She was an older woman with grey hair, with a hat wearing a black dress.  When Karen came down, Marc & Helen went to the balcony and whilst there they were asking spirit to touch them.  They started to realise both were being touched at the same time in the same place each time.  They also had the spirit box with them and asked the question “how many persons were in this room” and they clearly heard the number seven – there were seven of us.

Group A – Again started by showing the guests how to use the rods & pendulums, and most had movement.  Some had a male spirit, another had a small female child, possibly aged around 5 or 6.  We could feel her warm energy between us, around our hip height.  We both sensed she had long blond straight hair, she confirmed this by answering yes on the pendulum.  When using the spirit box we had alot of words come through, but none clear enough.  We were all hearing something different each time.  Steve (guest) was standing by the door using rods, and was sensing a mayor with him.  Asking if that was the shadow that was seen in the earlier session, the rods answered yes.  The rods also pointed to where we need to look to see him again, which was the same place seen earlier.  Steve had also felt a touch a moment before.  We did keep looking in that area hoping to see the shadow again, but unfortunately no.

Group B – Using the rods & pendulums again to start, lots had movement, all were able to communicate with spirit, some had male, others had female.  When using the equipment we did have some relavant words on the Ovilus, but had many more words on the Spirit Box: the name Bob & Stephen for the name of the spirits, no guests names said when asked but did say the number of people in the room correctly twice – ten.  People were seeing shadows in various places in the room, and one guest saw a shadow behind me at the same time I felt someone shaking my chair I was sitting on.
After the last controlled session finished I stayed with another team member Louise and did some glasswork.  The glass started moving, and after establishing our yes & no positions, the spirit confirmed he was the mayor from earlier.  Surprisingly we felt the table shake whilst the glass was moving.  This was a very large heavy table and we found it difficult to move ourselves.  We did ask the spirit to take the glass to where he was standing which he did.  We were also hearing noises and footsteps around us.  I could also feel someone touching my hair.

The Town Hall at Colchester is an amazing building, very active with spirit, and one I cannot wait to return.

Colchester Town Hall – 17th April 2015 (Kerry)

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 17th April 2015
Colchester, Essex

The Mayor’s Parlour
Ouija/Table tilting

Session 1 – Group B

The group were split so that half were on the Ouija and half doing table tilting.
With the first group, the glass took a very long time to move, but eventually it moved to the letters T and R. When asked if this was spirit’s initials, the glass then moved to Yes. Then the glass moved to numbers 2 and 3, and the glass confirmed that spirit’s age was 23 by once again moving to Yes. The group continued asking more questions to try and gain more information, but unfortunately there was no more movement on the glass after this.
The group on the other table had just slight rocking initially, then the table tilted up on one side. However, despite our best efforts to encourage spirit to move the table more or to spin it, unfortunately there wasn’t much more movement apart from gentle rocking and the occasional tilt.
We then swapped over and once again on the Ouija the glass didn’t move, but guests kept feeling coldness and touches on their arms. I also felt like I was touched on my left hand. One guest said they felt hands on their shoulders and another felt a push on their back.
When the other group tried the table tilting, they had movement straight away, with rocking and spinning, and at one point the table was spinning so fast that one of the guests fell onto the floor! He got back up to carry on and the table continued to spin and twist. When I asked spirit to walk the table across the room, it proceeded to do so, stopped halfway, and there was no more movement after that. During this session I felt a touch on my right cheek and also on my left leg below the knee.
On leaving the room a few of the guests explained feeling a static sensation all over which lasted for some time.

Session 2 – Group C

The guests said they would prefer to do glass work rather than Ouija, so we went and sat at another table in the room with just the glass on it, and tried to get spirit to come forward and move the glass. Unfortunately after trying for some time, the glass didn’t move so I suggested trying the writing planchette. Once again, despite our best efforts, there was still no movement. The guests then decided to try the Ouija, and after a while the glass started to move. We connected with a 12-year-old girl, and when we asked for a name the glass moved to the letters A,S, and K. We kept asking questions to try and get some more information, but the glass stopped moving, and it seemed the spirit had gone.
There was some very good table tilting experienced by everyone during this session. There was very gentle movement to start with, and it gradually picked up speed as the table continued to tilt and rock. It took a lot of encouragement to get the table to spin, as if spirit didn’t know how to do it. The table seemed to move fairly cautiously at first, with the movements gradually getting stronger, and eventually the table was spinning quite fast, to the amazement of the guests.

Session 3 – Group A

We tried table tilting first, and as soon as we placed our hands on it, the table started to move. Slowly at first, then it started rocking and spinning. It eventually started walking across the room. We decided to try and ask spirit some questions using the table, so we established our yes and no directions and discovered that we had a male spirit with us, who was in his seventies and used to be a Mayor.
The group then decided to try some glass work, and a male spirit came through who seemed to be connected to guest Steve Downs in some way. We asked spirit to draw his initial on the table with the glass and he drew a D. We soon found out his name was Daniel, in his thirties, had four children, and was Eastern European. He said he was connected to Steve on his grandfather’s side, but Steve couldn’t think where the connection could be, so would have to check on it with other members of his family.

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 17th April 2015
Colchester, Essex

This was our third visit to this magnificent building and we were hoping that the activity that we had encountered on previous visits would return, we were not disappointed.

Each team member chose a room that they wanted to work in for the night, I chose the flat above the Moot Hall to hold séances.

All sessions my groups were joined by Christopher, a RAF airman, about 5’9” and of slim build, aged in his early 30s but looked older due to effects of war.

The first group we were also joined Daisy, a local farmer’s daughter from 1400s. Daisy was aged in her early 20s and wore a white dress and something that looked like hessian tied together around her feet for shoes.

On asking for the spirit to interact with us the first group had their arms and legs moved, many a time people’s arms were twisted and some of the group were pulled by their hands to the floor. One or two of the people on the floor were unable to get up. They said that it felt as if someone was sitting on them or holding them down.

After moving into another room someone in the group thought that another person had walked past the outside of the window. Bearing in mind we were on the top floor of the building this seemed unlikely!

Throughout this session many people felt cold air blown across their face and odd noises which when I asked where the noises came from everyone could not agree on a location.

The second group also felt the touches of Christopher but they were nothing like the activity experienced by the first group, this was mainly due to the fact that people in the group didn’t encourage or ask the spirits to do anything.

The third group had much more activity with people’s arms being moved, being pushed and swayed plus some of the guests were also pulled down towards the floor. Although this time no-one was held down on the floor but the guests could still feel the pressure.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with many guests having a paranormal experience or something happen to them which they could not explain.

We as a team look forward to returning later in the year for another investigation
