The Priest House ghost hunt – 11-5-2013

The Priest House ghost hunt 11th May 2013
West Hoathly, West Sussex

This investigation was different than many of our others, as the size of the venue is not large enough to split guests into groups, so we started with what we normally do at the end of the night and that is to let guests wander freely around the building using our equipment to communicate with the spirit energies.

There were two reasons for this, one, was to find active areas within the building and two, was to allow the guests to ask their questions about ghost hunting and as the evening progressed into darkness everyone would know their way around the building. As this is a 15th Century building, the floors, staircase and ceilings all have uniqueness about them!

Many guests found that the upper rooms were high in spirit energies and lots of communication took place using various equipment, many guests who brought their own EVP recorders also had responses to their questions.

As I was wandering around the building checking on various groups of guests I too noticed spirit energies and described who I met along the way.

In the bedroom I came across a young girl of about 8 years old, who was holding a rather beaten up teddy bear, when I asked her about the bear, she asked why I called it a “Teddy” bear. This may be because the phrase “Teddy” bear was invented by a US toy company in 1902 after the US President Theodore Roosevelt. The guest that was in this room at that time had recorded several anomalies on her recorder. Also in the same room was another female spirit energy aged in her 20s but acted very maturely as if she was in her 60s, when asking for her name, she refused to tell me. Both girls were dressed in clothing that I would associate with the mid-1800s.

In the corridor upstairs I came across a portly gentleman about 5’8” wearing a three piece black pin stripe suit, shiny black shoes with a top buckle and wearing a top hat his name was Harold. He also sported a trimmed grey beard and hat mostly black and grey hair. He walked around the room a lot, pacing but didn’t actually want to communicate with us.

Downstairs I decided it was time to do a séance to invite the spirit energies to do something and to let their presence to be felt by the guests. I had no idea what we would encounter in the séance, but I wasn’t expecting what happened, no-one could have done.

The spirit energy that came forward was called Toby Turner, aged in his mid-20s and of muscular build, he gave me the year of 1910. Toby was quickly able to move some people into odd positions and after some relatively mild and gentle arm movement, Toby increased the activity to include pulling people backwards, but just the top half of a person, so it became rather painful and literally back breaking. Toby also used the furniture in the room to assist his movements with us, using the table that we were standing in front of. He pulled our arms down to the table and then used the table as a pivot to pull us further down. However when Toby realised that the table was in the way he used this. There were many items on the table for display purposes, all tied together with fishing wire. Toby manipulated our arms to push the brass plates on the table, usually in a circular motion to twist and slide these items around the table. There were two groups of people who were doing this, myself and Mark’s (guest) hands and

Jo (GHE team) and Karen’s (guest) hands. We were standing opposite each other. Our hands were moving all the items on the table, because they were all tied together, once one started to move the rest of the items followed, which made a lot of noise and Toby was determined to push these items off the table, but those guests that were in front of the table were able to stop them falling off. This was strange because normally spirit energies do not interact with objects in this way.

The séance ended with Jo and Karen’s hand lunging or punching into Jeff (guest) and Justin (guest), the last punch into Justin’s stomach was actually quite forceful, so I stopped the séance.

After putting all the items back to their original positions we went upstairs to try to communicate with the spirits.

Once in the bedroom a female spirit energy called Dorothy was present, she was in her 60s, a spinster, who was very religious and didn’t like our presence, however many guests could feel her presence, either by touches on the head, or some guests who were sitting on some furniture felt like they were being pushed off.

Tapping noises and responses to taps were heard along with a whistled response. Also in this room we used an Ovilus (a device that turns EMF energy into spoken words) and Dorothy was able to use this to say some words including the name of a guest “Justin” and “Priest” plus answers to some questioned asked by the guests.

This was an enjoyable ghost hunt and one in which the majority of the guests felt some physical paranormal activity, but it was also a strange event, the séance will be remembered by us and those guests involved for a long time.

Rowfant House – 6-4-2013

Rowfant House ghost hunt 6th April 2013
Crawley, West Sussex

This was the first time Rowfant House had been investigated by Ghost Hunt Events or any other ghost teams, so we were all very excited about tonight.  I had two bedrooms upstairs, rooms 7 & 8.  There was an uneasy feel about room 7 and my challenge for the night was to establish what may have happened in that room.  Steve did have some knowledge but wouldn’t give us this information.

My first group were members of Surrey Paranormal, and as they had years of ghost hunting experience they enjoyed the opportunity to have free rein.  Some of the group were ‘sensitive’ and were able to pick up on the spirit(s) in the room.  We started in room 7 and almost everyone felt a tightness in their chest with difficulty breathing.  The group felt a female spirit was present who had died in this room, possibly by being hit over the head.  Some guests felt a sharp pain on their right temple, especially when sitting on one side of the bed.  Charlie was hearing a faint heartbeat, and felt pain in his lower rib cage.  It was felt the lady was in her 20’s, had plaited hair and was a maid or worker in the house.  We thought she may have been pregnant.  Various guests had the following names for the spirit; Eleanor, Martha, Mary, Maureen, Margaret and Marlene.  As we were leaving to go into room 8, myself and Bob noticed that Charlie was sitting on the window seat unresponsive.  As we both sat next to him he suddenly burst into tears.  Charlie said he felt utter sadness, he was in a dark place, completely bereft and everything had gone, and had the name Eileen.  He felt he was feeling the female spirits pain.  We spent some time doing some scrying in room 8, and everyone could see a male in the mirror with a long dark beard, and long dark hair.  As we were leaving the bedrooms, a guest thought she saw a dog on the landing, we found out later that a black Labrador had died in that place.

With my second group we identified a male spirit on the ghost pro, possibly the man that killed the female.  We decided to use the pendulums and dowsing rods, which the guests enjoyed.  We asked questions to the male spirit and were pleased to receive the same answers (yes or no) on both.  We felt he killed the female, but didn’t mean to, and had loved her.  We again tried scrying in the next room, and a man was seen with a dark beard and hair, also a wide nose.

For my third group we were surprised to have our first KII activity – continuous throughout, so surprised we kept checking all our mobiles were turned off, which were.  We again used the dowsing rods and pendulums to answer our questions.  We then went into room 8 to do some scrying, and again guests saw a man, with evil eyes and pointed ears.

As we came downstairs some guests were standing in the corridor and thought they had just heard a dog bark and a door bang, but couldn’t establish a logical reason for this.  At this point Ian (Manager) said he often hears a dog bark, among many other strange things.  We all enjoyed hearing about the experiences of the staff, and can’t wait to return in the future.  Great night!!

Rowfant House ghost hunt – 6-4-2013

Rowfant House ghost hunt 6th April 2013
Crawley, West Sussex

Rowfant House is one of the secret gems of the countryside, once owned by a very important and influential family who let Winston Churchill stay during the Second World War and is now home to the Latvian Lutheran Church in England.

We had no idea what to expect at this ghost hunt as it was the first ghost hunt undertaken at this venue by anyone. We were not disappointed as activity seemed to happen all night long.

All the guests were split into three smaller groups which were headed by different members of the GHE team, I had commandeered a bedroom for my sessions as I felt that something terrible happened in this room. It was also the same room that Churchill used when he stayed at Rowfant House.

There were two spirit energies that were present all night with me, the first was Captain Terry McLoughlan, aged in his early 30s and was in what is now the RAF and from the First World War era. Terry was of slim build, about 5’10” in height with light brown hair. He was dressed in a very smart uniform. The second was Annabelle, aged in her early 20s with long brown hair wearing a dirty white dress. She suffered from Eczema and when I first noticed her she had a smell of ammonia about or associated with her.

The first group to enter this room felt some unusual cold spots and high levels of KII EMF energy along with some long conversations on our communication devices. Many guests smelt carbolic soap throughout the session.

During the séance some guests felt arm movement along with some pushing and swaying which was Terry making himself known. After the séance some guests sitting down felt tingling sensations and very heavy heads, others who were all sitting on the sofa felt very serene and relaxed. The person who was sitting in a chair favoured by Winston Churchill felt very depressed (they did not know at that time that it was Churchill’s chair, this I told them after the session had finished).

Many of the guests took photos during the session, some of which contained light anomalies or orbs.

The second group, in this room smelt soap once again, although two guests thought that it may have been bleach. During the session there were many strange flashes of light seen outside the windows, had it been thundery then I would have said it was lightening, but it wasn’t. Just after one of these flashes some guests thought they saw a face outside the window. It wasn’t a real person because we were on the first floor! However it remains unexplained what they saw.

Andy (guest) whilst sitting in a chair felt very important and I didn’t tell him until after the session finished that this was Churchill’s chair. Others who were sitting in the same seats as the first group felt the complete opposite (of the first group) many feeling uncomfortable and edgy. I felt very dizzy and I was sitting on the bed.

The third group had the most physical activity and during the séance, which included lots of arm movement, pushing and pulling the guests backwards and twisting arms behind people’s backs. One guest felt sick and had to leave the room. Many times our hands were moved in a circular motion, sometimes in mid-air and sometimes close to the floor, why remains a mystery. Jason (guest) and I were pulled by our arms to the floor. A third spirit energy came into the room towards the end of the session, he was a mischievous male energy who wanted to touch certain people in the group and many guests felt a cob web sensation around their face.

Once again some of us who were facing the window saw strange flashes of light outside, although we still have no explanation as to what could have caused this.

After the séance had finished I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice experiment. Many of the guests’ questions had some sort of response although we couldn’t work out what they all said.

The best results of this experiment can be heard at:-
