Rye Castle ghost hunt – 21-7-2012

Rye Castle (Ypres Tower) ghost hunt – 21st July 2012

We have held two ghost hunts at Rye Castle in the past and each time the level of activity increases nothing could have prepared us for what happened on 21st July. It was truly exceptional what the guests experienced.

We started with two groups, one group going up to the upper level, the other to the basement level. My group on the upper level had within minutes much KII activity and plenty of communication via our electronic devices and since it was still relatively light outside the room felt safe and generally comfortable.

To give the guests an experience of the spirits that reside within the wall of the Tower I decided that it would be pertinent to hold a séance, as this is the best way to experience spiritual activity.

We were joined by a male energy called Tony, he was aged in his mid-40s and quite a stocky build since he was about 5’8” in height. He was wearing a white shirt and brown or tan trousers but what struck me as being odd is that he had very shiny black shoes. The shoes did not look like they belonged to him. Tony was a happy spirit and I felt he would have been quite a character when he was alive, as his facial expressions hid nothing. He had a round likeable face although slightly bald. He seemed to be have no reason to be in the tower. If he did he didn’t tell me.

During the séance circle Tony moved the guests arms on request and did exactly what they asked, even when the guests did not voice their request.

We were also joined by Agnes a female energy who remained non talkative from the start. She was well dressed and aged in her late 40s.

Lorraine (guest) could smell sick during the séance which made her feel uncomfortable and then she could taste it as well which nearly made her physically sick!

Ted (the Rye Castle Museum guide) could also smell manure as did some of the guests including Lorraine. Ted also smelt roses but only in a certain part of the room, Jeff (guest) too also smelled roses.

There was also a Policeman or Peeler present. He only gave me his surname as Constable Peace. He looked about 30 years old but did not talk to me, just looked on for the entire séance, which not only involved gentle arm movement but also some swaying and for Rachael (guest) some much more forceful movement.

During this time we could see light flashing through the floor which we assumed was the other group taking photographs, however light would not have reached us from where they were (in the basement) and when we asked them after the session had finished they did not take any photos on the ground floor, which had they done so we would have seen. The light we saw has no rational explanation as light cannot pass through solid objects.

 

After a short break both groups swapped locations.

Once again on the upper floor we had excellent communication via our electronic equipment but this time very little KII activity. The room also felt different and most people noticed this. Both Ted and I had no explanation for why this might be.

Once again we were joined very quickly by a young energy. His name was Timothy Spratt, his father was a local fisherman and his mother was imprisoned in the Tower. He was about 9 or 10 years old and was dressed in what I would call a school uniform and had blonde hair.

There were also two female energies present, possibly sisters as they looked alike, aged about 20 years old and they just stood by the display cabinets and some of the guests saw shadows in that area of the room.

Ted commented to me that he felt uncomfortable in one of the corners beside a cell. I could feel the spirit energy that was responsible, although he posed no threat to us at this time even though he wasn’t a particularly nice person.

Once again I started a séance circle so that these guests could experience spirit activity and hopefully get some physical movement.

The movement started gently with simple arm movements to the majority of the guests. Many of the guests were amazed at this as they did not expect anything to happen!

I noticed a male energy that seemed to appear from nowhere step really close to the circle, the other energies that were present all disappeared and the movement stopped briefly then started again but with more force. The male energy gave his name as Benjamin and he made Claire (guest) feel very uncomfortable. All Benjamin told me is that he was the energy that Ted felt in the room earlier and that he hated women and used to murder them for fun. He was imprisoned briefly in the Tower for murder. Benjamin tried to twist my hands and Shelly’s (guest) apart, as Shelly was standing next to Claire and Benjamin thought he could get to her that way.

Many guests also felt very cold when Benjamin was standing near them, this felt like the sort of cold felt when opening a freezer.

Teresa (guest) who was standing on my left felt movement around her ear and hair, several minutes later her earring “fell out”, which given the way earrings are attached could not have been an accident as everyone was holding hands and no one touched Teresa’s ear.

The energy Benjamin was making many of the guests feel uncomfortable and we could all feel a force which was pushing us downwards. Ted had moved from where he was sitting because he too didn’t feel well sitting in that spot and moved to the other side of the room.

Many guests felt sensations around the back of the necks and their hair, I too felt a restriction around my throat. Shelly also felt pains and touches in her sides.

Then I saw my guide, this is something which I don’t often see, which is just as well because every time I do it means I or someone in the circle is in danger. Within a matter of seconds, after I had told the guests what I had seen I was just about to say “He’s Gone” when everyone in the room felt a huge relief and we were all able to stand upright. The atmosphere in the room changed from its thick nature when we started to a light an airy nature. The guests could not believe what they had just experienced, especially Teresa who was a sceptic.

After another short break everyone headed out into the courtyard and Women’s Tower. In the top room we have experienced much activity before and as we started Carl (GHE team) stood in the corner of the room that he didn’t like and an area which many guests have felt odd or strange.

Marc (GHE team) and myself were calling out for spirit to make a noise or to whistle. Carl heard some responses although he was wearing an audio amplification device, the rest of us did not hear those sounds.

Once again some of the guests were feeling sick. I had warned them that this may happen, as it has every time we have visited the Women’s Tower. Marc using his Ovulus had the male energy Tony (from the earlier séance) telling us to go outside.

I decided that this was the best opportunity to do an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. Everyone asked a question to spirit and when we played it back we could all hear a response after one of the guests questions. On further analysis we had six spirit voices after a question but during the analysis only four of those could be understood; you can hear them at:-

Ted by this time wasn’t feeling well (again!) neither was Carl and both had to leave the room. Marc decided that it would probably be a good idea to hold a séance circle to build the energy and get the spirit energies to do something. After a short amount of time there were energies present and people were feeling strange and odd sensations. Marc then asked if they guests were OK, but Teresa failed to answer. Marc said that her could feel her “going” and I stepped in to place her in the middle of the circle as she did not respond to her name being called out. Once in the circle she came back straight away although she felt very tearful and insisted that she leave the room, so I escorted her outside, where she remained tearful and she explained that she felt the despair and the emotions of the spirit energies that were held there.

This was undoubtedly the most interesting ghost hunt and the most activity felt by the guests that we have held at Rye Castle and I suspect that the reason for this is that we are not allowed to go back until 2013 because the Museum is having some major repair work on the roof of the Women’s Tower and the building will be closed for many months.

All the guests and Ted thoroughly enjoyed the experience, as did we because the EVP’s that we recorded here are some of the clearest that we have recorded to date.

Rye Castle – 28-4-2012

Rye Castle ghost hunt 28th April 2012

After our first ghost hunt at Rye Castle in September 2011, we were really looking forward to returning, since we had a lot of unexplainable and anomalous activity. This time we and the guests were not disappointed.

The weather certainly did not help the evenings proceedings, torrential rain battered Rye all night long. Since this was a small group I decided that because of the weather we would stay in one group throughout the evening.

The First session was held on the first floor of the tower, where there was a lot of KII EMF activity and through our electronic equipment, guests we able to ascertain that there were two energies present.

The first was a male energy, who was Dutch and from the 1880s. This energy was able to communicate with the guests through our equipment and answered many of their questions.

The second, who I could see, was another male energy called George Cooper. He was 23 years old when he passed and he told me that he frequently rode a motorcycle. He was dressed from the 1970s. He was about 5’10” in height and of a slim build. He had natural blonde hair and myself and a guest (Wendy) saw him pass between us, both of us saw his long blonde hair (shoulder length).

There was also another male energy present, an American Indian although I had no communication with him.

Towards the end of the session Wendy started to shake uncontrollably and quite violently, even when she sat down the shaking continued for some time. When we were leaving the room Wendy was literally stuck on the staircase, unable to move her legs. Wendy commented that it felt like the spirits were reluctant to let her go. I took two of us to get Wendy down to the ground floor. I suggested that Wendy leave the tower for a few minutes as this would dispel an further activity on Wendy from whatever spirit had caused this. When Wendy returned, nothing bad happened to her for the rest of the evening.

Our second session was held in the Women’s Tower (a smaller tower that once housed women and children prisoners). After about five minutes Marc had to leave as he said that he wasn’t feeling well and needed some air. Marc continued listening to us from the bottom of the tower. As Marc approached the door way to the court yard he reported seeing two orange lights outside the door. When he investigated this he could not work out how this was possible from any nearby property, as the walls surrounding the courtyard are at least 20 feet high and only about 10 feet from the entrance to the Women’s Tower. Considering that it was raining heavily a light source could have only been in the sky, but this too is extremely unlikely and thus this remains unexplained.

Both Carl and Ted (Volunteer Guide) commented that the wall that they had their backs to felt as if it was moving, which is rather unlikely, but both felt the same when standing in this area.

Once again there was some KII activity recorded and some communication via our equipment for the guests, although I have no details of this apart from the fact female and child energies were present. Carl who was standing in a corner said that he too wasn’t feeling well, although he told me afterwards that he just felt angry and wanted to hit me. Many of the guests then stood exactly where Carl had stood and some of the guests reported feeling the same, although when I stood in that spot I felt nothing. Many guests also reported that the room seemed to get darker in the corners.

During the period we were in this tower I was knocking on a metal filing cabinet for spirit to repeat or copy the knocks, many of which were heard in response. Marc however who was in the downstairs room heard the same noises, but he heard them as if they had been repeated on a wooden object. There wasn’t any wooden surfaces in this tower.

Many people heard strange noises outside in the courtyard, including Marc (who was closest). We also conducted a short session in the lower room of this tower, but other than noises and sounds heard from the courtyard nothing notable happened.

When guests proceeded into the courtyard many of them felt vulnerable and exposed, whilst others including me felt serene and pleasant energies. To me it seemed a very pleasant place to relax. Had it not been raining then we would have investigated this further.

Marc and Carl held a lone vigil in one of the cells, Ted who just opened the door for them and stood outside the cell did not feel well and was affected by this experience. Whilst Carl & Marc were here they heard audible sounds, although nothing was recorded on our equipment.

Our third session was split between the first floor of the main tower and the basement area, which had at one time been the town morgue. I was on the first floor with the majority of the guests, the rest were in the basement with Marc & Carl.

Those in the basement tried a scrying experiment with some startling results, all of those who participated didn’t like the results. There was also a strange humming sound heard in this area, Ted commented that he had never heard this sound before. Just before we left Ted and Marc re-checked this area and no sound or humming could be heard.

Also in the basement, those present could smell various scents, possibly formaldehyde, this periodically moved around the room got stronger in places and faded away. Audible tapping and knocking sounds were heard in the proximity of the ceiling of the basement, although the EVP experiment held here did not reveal anything.

I held a proper séance this time and a female energy called Janet Wansley came forward. She was in her early 20s and came across as being a housekeeper or someone who lived in this tower when it was a home. She had dark brown hair and piercing blue eyes, very similar to some Irish people. Many of the guests, especially Virginia noted Janet had a lovely warm energy and was very vibrant in her actions. Janet proceeded to physically touch guests and move our arms and push us forwards and backwards. At one point everyone was swaying from side to side.

I conducted various EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena experiments – a.k.a. ghost voice experiments) through the entire evening. Out of all the recordings six were definite ghost voices, the best three you can listen to at:-

Several photographs were taken but nothing strange or anomalous was reported by anyone.

Once again a very enjoyable and exciting investigation and one which we hope to return to later in the year as we would like to investigate the courtyard, hopefully next time it will not be raining.

Also in attendance with me were Marc & Carl who are experienced paranormal investigators.
