Toys Hill and Weardale Manor – 14th November 2014

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 14th November 2014
Toys Hill, nr Westerham, Kent

I don’t often write reports for our outdoor events as normally these are conducted between much larger events, where we have lots to write about. However this event was on par with an indoor event in terms of activity.
We started at the Manor site, lots of communication on our electronic equipment, a brother and sister aged about 7-8 years old running around.

One guests saw a mist rising not too far from where we were standing, it looked similar to smoke, but none of the group smoked. There was some mist in the distance, but it was a still night with virtually no wind.
I could sense Arthur, a Butler near to me, but he didn’t interfere or interact with the group, just watched.

After we moved from the Manor site into the woods, I set up the laser grid and one or two anomalies were seen. Some of the guests felt very uncomfortable, although there was no obvious reason for it apart from being a very still windless night. There was also more communication via the electronic gadgets.

I also turned on my Spirit Box (a device that scans the FM radio bands in reverse at 100ms). I started to ask simple questions like how many men in the group? The answer we heard on the Spirit box was three, which was correct. I then proceeded to ask more questions, each one in turn was answered correctly, even the place name; Toys Hill and November, plus names of the guests.

From this I decided to hold a séance to see if the guests could feel the physical presence of the spirits. It started with some light arm movement and people being pulled backwards. When I asked for a noise we all heard two footfalls from somewhere behind me (we were still all holding hands in the séance), this scared some people, then without any warning we all heard a very loud tree/branch cracking, to say this was unsettling would be an understatement!

Just about everyone was feeling a little jumpy, but I went off to investigate the branch/tree noise as I know the woods very well, but after walking a reasonable distance to where I thought the noise had emanated from, I saw nothing out of the ordinary, no trees or branches on the ground. So I returned to the group, who were all now scared out of their wits.

We left the woods by a different and quicker route than the way we entered, but saw and heard nothing. Back at the manor site, some people continued with the electronic communication but most wanted to leave, so we finished earlier than expected.

The Spirit Box session was one of the best I have ever had at this location, especially as just about everyone had their names spoken, the day, the month and the location and how many of us were present. It was truly brilliant. The noise in the woods was for me equally brilliant as I have never such a sound in this wood before. To top it off this was the last event at this location in 2014, hopefully when we return in 2015 we’ll have something else to report.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 27-6-2014

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 27th June 2014
Pluckley, Kent

We don’t often write reports for our outdoor events, but this ghost hunt was exceptional and worthy of being written about.

After walking to the centre of the woods and handing out the usual ghost hunting gadgets (KII EMF (Electromagnetic detectors) and Ghost Communication devices) and explaining how to use them, a spirit energy called Thomas stepped close to us, listening to what I was telling the guests about what is likely to happen. Thomas was about 5’9” aged in his late 20s and had a rugged appearance and unshaven. He wore a white/cream granddad shirt and dark green woollen trousers. In life he wouldn’t have been a pleasant person and would always be in trouble. However as a spirit he had realised his wrongs and was happy to communicate with us, which he did.

As we were talking Holly (guest) felt a very cold spot on the back of her lower legs, neither of the guests either side of her felt this sensation.

There was also another older gent spirit (aged in his late 60s or early 70s) present although he was trying to communicate with us very little of what he tried worked, or rather very little we heard or felt. Some guests also felt cold spots but the problem with this is that we were outside and whilst it wasn’t windy and the temperature was about 13 degrees Celsius any slight breeze couldn’t be ruled out.

After a lot of questions and answers and some photographs taken we moved on further into the woods at another crossroad.

Here I set up my laser grid and asked the spirit to step into the grid. I also turned on my spirit box (a device that scans the FM radio waves at 100ms in reverse) and asked the spirit, who was a familiar spirit to say something. After asking for Christian names to spoken we first heard “Holly”, then a while later “Kim” and when asking for how many people we all heard a clear “8”, although there were nine of us. On a couple of occasions I heard my name and other words although these were not about anyone present or in answer to a question. Nothing was seen in the grid although Maxine (guest) saw a blue light in the middle distance.

I suggested that we should create a séance circle to build the energy and allow the spirit to move and touch us whilst giving the guests a physical experience of spirit movement.

Within a matter of minutes the spirit energy that I had seen standing in the grid and had spoken some words on the spirit box, was standing behind me. This spirit is a familiar face to me as I have seen and witnessed his energy several times. His name is Philip and he passed away in a motorcycle accident in the 1960s. He was in his early 30s and he has said that the accident was his own doing.

Philip started by lifting the arms of the two people either side of me (Anita & Nicky) and I was able to prove to both people it wasn’t me lifting their arms. I then asked for either of these people to be moved or pushed, although neither moved at the time Anita told me afterwards she could feel the force pushing on her, but she had dug her feet in as not to move.

I then moved around the circle in between Bevan and Kim and once again Philip moved our arms, Bevan was very quiet when it was his hand moving, speechless in fact as he could not believe what was happening. When I asked for Philip to pull him backwards (I didn’t say this aloud) Bevan was really surprised when he got pulled backwards, although he now became vocal and said it was the best feeling. I wish in a way that I had filmed this as it would have made excellent viewing!

Unfortunately the spirit activity didn’t occur to Kim for some unknown reason. Other people in the séance circle were being wobbled and pushed forwards and backwards as well as having their arms lifted up and pulled to the floor including Maxine and Sarah who were on the other side of the circle.

Once again I moved around the circle so that as many guests as possible could feel this energy. This time I stood in between Holly and Jim and asked that Philip move these people in similar ways to the rest of the group as they were the only two people who had yet to feel this strange sensation. Almost immediately Holly and my hands were being moved although with Jim it took a little longer. Holly and my hands were moved in all directions, some of them were not very comfortable or just plain painful, but neither of us would choose these manoeuvres.

Philip was continuing to move people’s arms and sway or push people however all of a sudden Nicky just seem to “zone out” and didn’t respond to her name being called. As I looked at her I thought I could see her face changing into an older woman, but since she answered in a quiet manner I didn’t think much more about it. Then Nicky more or less collapsed and the only reason why she was standing up was because the two people either side of her were holding her up. Many people called her name but she didn’t respond to anyone and just muttered a few quiet words. I was really expecting her to go into a trance state, however and fortunately (for the other guests) she didn’t. I then quickly pushed her into the centre of the circle and performed some instant healing as well as making Jim able to join her in the centre of the circle, quite a complicated procedure although one which I have done before. After a couple of minutes Nicky was feeling better and more herself and talking normally. Once Nicky was talking and acting in a normal manner I closed the séance circle. Nicky couldn’t remember anything of what just happened to her and she said that she felt really hot, but that was all she could remember. Everyone else felt surprised and wanted to know what just happened and more importantly why it happened to Nicky, which I explained. This particular spirit encounter alarmed or frightened the guests and afterwards they asked me if I was concerned, I answered that this is not the first time this has happened to a guest and it didn’t concern me as I have had to sort out bigger problems than this, although in this instance it helped that all the guests remained sensible and followed my instruction which ended the situation without anyone being in danger or badly affected.

From here we walked to another part of the woods and although nothing in particular happened everyone commented how quiet the woods were and how there were few animal sounds. It was quieter than normal (usually there are bird noises if nothing else) and when everyone stopped talking no sound at all could be heard which some of the guests found more alarming than hearing a noise.

This was an excellent ghost hunt with all guests getting some physical movement that they could not explain nor in some cases understand although everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt – 28-3-2014

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt 28th March 2014
Sevenoaks, Kent

The walk up to the hill fort is always an interesting one and very physically demanding as it is very steep in places and the large two foot high steps don’t help. Everyone is always glad when they reach the top!

At the top it is just a small rise into the fort as the escarpment is the hardest but then as a Fort this is what made its position important.

At our first stop, which is a simple ‘T’ junction sometimes this is very active, however on this occasion it was mildly active with some strange noises being heard by everyone, but every time one of these noises was heard it was always behind me and I kept moving around so that I could hear the latest noise. Very frustrating but the noises sounded similar to someone approaching.

In this area the guests all had an electronic device and the communicators were very active , the EMF KII meters not so active and only one or two spikes were seen on these, but only when no-one was purposely looking at them!

At various times mumbling or voices could be heard but each time the actual direction could not be established.

There was a spirit with us who was in the Armed Forces as he was wearing a grey Great Coat, he was also holding a rolled up do lead, but I didn’t see or sense a dog with him. There was also a young female spirit, but she wouldn’t really communicate with us.

I set up the laser grid in this spot to try to see if the direction of the noises would correspond to something being seen, but once this was set up the noises stopped, as did the communication from the spirits.

From here we moved on to my favourite part of the wood, this is an area which so much has happened on previous investigations and I was hopeful that something visual would happen again since we were a small group.

I set up the laser grid on top of a bridleway post and pointed it uphill. Two military (Army) soldier spirits were around us, neither liked me, probably because of my passiveness nature but nevertheless wanted their presence to be felt and seen.

I also turned on my Spirit Box (a device that scans the FM radio band in reverse at 100ms) but unfortunately and probably due to the weather this seemed to pick up a lot more radio than I have experienced before and after asking several questions and not hearing anything but normal radio signals decided to turn it off. Whilst I was trying to turn it off one guest saw a white mist pass from the right to the left further down the path and asked me if I had a torch on at the time. Which I didn’t and neither did the people further down the path.

Whilst we were both standing in the dark we both heard footsteps approaching us from the path we had just walked down and then an icy cold blast which felt like someone had just opened a freezer in front of us. Stepping away from this particular spot it was comfortable and relatively warm but as soon as either of us walked closer to a particular spot we could both feel the coldness. There was no wind and the ambient temperature was about 7 degrees Celsius but the really cold spot was closer to freezing temperatures.

I decided to start a séance circle to see if the spirit would be able to move people, which they did almost immediately. Dan (guest) was pushed forwards and mainly pulled backwards and no matter what he tried to do the spirit just kept pulling him back. There was also some light arm movements but this came to an abrupt stop when Stuart noticed some of the lights in the laser grid had suddenly and without any warning just gone out as if something was blocking the light. I decided to close the séance circle so that we could all try to see it and just before I did Dan saw a white mist go from left to right, exactly in the same spot that Nikki had seen it earlier.

Several guests walked down the path to see if they could understand or see why the laser lights had just disappeared but could not, two of the guests walked to the same spot and both came back as they felt vulnerable, and those that stayed behind felt like we were being watched. As we all stood watching the laser grid several times different parts of the grid would fade to nothing and then come back whilst other lights, especially the centre light (which is brighter) would just disappear from view then re-emerge a few minutes later. Given where the grid was pointing the centre light was about 5 feet off the ground so an animal could not have been the cause.

When we moved to the final area near to the pond two spirit energies were near to us, one was a farm hand called Mickey who was in his late 20s and he was not interested in us but more interested in the other spirit who was trying to push Stuart into the pond. Stuart was fighting the movements and ended up having a very sore lower back pain but also he was swaying and moving in a strange circular movement as the spirit tried to push him. Fortunately for Stuart the spirit was unsuccessful!

All in all a great night and some excellent visual unexplainable paranormal occurrences, especially the mists seen in the laser grid and how some of the lights randomly just disappeared from view for no apparent reason. However this particular location has been a successful location on previous ghost hunts for seeing mists and shapes within the laser grid.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 7-2-2014

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 7th February 2014
Pluckley, Kent

Pluckley Screaming woods is one of our most popular ghost hunts which is attested by the amount of time in advance people have to book, which at the time of writing is 4 months ahead of the event. Everyone came dressed for the weather, which as usual was rain, although the rain didn’t arrive in the woods until we were at least half way through the night.

After walking to the centre of the woods I handed out our usual ghost hunting equipment, which consisted of KII meters (with are proximity metres [to spirit]) and our Ghost Pro’s which are communicators through a series of flashing.

It took a while, but eventually spirit started to come forward, first a male spirit who had leather patches on his trousers, which I thought may have been a woodman, as it turned out he wasn’t. He was a pig farmer who kept pigs within the woods. Although he never actually gave me his name he was aged in his late 30s and came from the mid-1800s. He was quite happy to answer questions that John (guest) asked via our communication equipment. We were also joined by a female spirit who was aged in her late 20s, possibly early 30s and she also didn’t give me her name. She seemed shy and reluctant to answer questions. The KII meters never lit up at all, much to our disappointment.

The two spirits seem to be opposite each other and communicated with the people who were closest to them, so the pig farmer communicated with John and the female spirit communicated with Cheryl & Kerry (guests). David & Charlotte (guests) didn’t have a communication device but both kept seeing odd shadows and lights within the woods. Kerry and I also kept hearing mumbling and talking, which was like a conversation being carried on the wind, but at that time it wasn’t windy in fact quite still and I couldn’t work out or hear what the conversation was about although it seemed relentless.

Several people started to take photos and Kerry & Cheryl had strange anomalous photos with unusual light anomalies which I have never seen before here or in fact anywhere else.

John kept seeing a shadow walk between two trees and every time he saw something come towards us his communication device lit up. He asked (not out loud) whether the spirit kept pigs and then felt something brush past him, I too felt something on my foot and looked down but saw nothing.

I decided that the best way for the guests to feel the spirit energies and experience their energy first hand was to hold a séance. Neither of the spirits that we were communicating with earlier seemed to want to do anything but just as I was wondering whether anything at all would happen a very well dressed spirit called Alfred turned up, he looked like he could have been a mayor or a councillor because he was wearing a very smart suit, he was about 5’8” in height and aged in his late 50s and had a “handlebar” moustache. Alfred was able to move our arms and started with Charlotte and me, which progressed around the left hand side of the circle, leaving just Kerry. As I reassured her to relax and loosen her grip with me our hands started to slowly rise. I then asked Kerry to ask Alfred to move her hands in a particular direction, which Alfred slowly accomplished. Several times my arms were pulled downwards and both guests on either side of me could feel the weight and pressure, although I insisted that I did not want to touch the ground since it was very wet and muddy. Alfred moved my arms to within a whisker of the ground just to prove a point!

At various times whilst we were being moved, I and some of the guests heard footfalls and whispers plus the strange relentless talking, which wasn’t getting louder or quieter, if it were carried on any wind then I would have expected that.

When I asked Alfred to gently push people he moved around the circle and one by one everyone fell backwards, very gently, but enough to know that they were not just losing their balance and David was picked more than anyone else. Cheryl however was not moved at all but Alfred did try a few times but it didn’t work.

From here we moved on to another part of the woods where I switched on my spirit box (a device that scans the FM radio band in reverse at 100ms) and asked for any spirit to say our names. It took a long time but eventually a spirit came and said three of our names and when asking for how many people were present we all heard 10, but there wasn’t ten of us, just six. However we don’t know how many spirits were present as they didn’t answer that question. By this time the rain had started to fall, not terribly heavy but enough to know it was raining. We happened to be standing beside some trees that when the wind blew creaked and groaned like an old wooden door which added to the atmosphere! But every time that I asked for a noise this particular tree squeaked which became rather annoying.

Using the laser grid here as well didn’t produce anything interesting because the rain was interfering with the beam although communication continued and a few times the KII meter that David was holding lit up a lot, which surprised him, although the other KII held by Cheryl and Kerry didn’t.

Kerry and I could still hear this odd talking noise, although we both thought it was coming from different directions, I thought it was coming from deeper in the woods whereas Kerry thought it was coming from the edge of the woods, unfortunately none of the other people could hear this talking sound.

As we started to make our way out of the woods, past an area that people used to live in the woods as late as the early 1900s I could distinctly smell a wood fire, which given the amount of rain we have had recently was hard to believe especially on this particular night because of the level of the rainfall. No-one else could small a fire although John smelt what he described as an odd smell, but couldn’t describe what it smelt like.

Given the weather no EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena) experiments were undertaken because the only noise that would have been heard was the rain, which was a shame because we have had some excellent EVPs from our Pluckley events.

Given the weather this was an excellent ghost hunt with lots of noises and physical paranormal activity felt by the guests and one in which all those present thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Toys Hill ghost hunt – 22-9-2013

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 22nd September 2013
Toys Hill, Kent

After making our way through the fairly spooky path to the site of the old manor house and handed out to the guests some of our ghost hunting equipment, spiritual activity was noticed and spotted on the various electronic gadgets quite quickly. I then left the guests to wander around the various parts of the grounds and joined them intermittently as different parts of the grounds guests feel and can interact with different spiritual energies.

Whilst I was near to the terraces a familiar male spirit was seen. His name is Alfred and he would have been a head butler in the house. He often stands at the edges until I ask for him to do something physical to a guest, like a gentle touch or push.

There were many spirit present, which is nothing unusual, but it is rare for them to interact with us unless there are asked to join in, otherwise they just watch with curiosity.

Many guests were getting meaningful communication on various pieces of equipment and as I joined several groups of people I was able to tell them details about the spirit that they had not thought of asking or couldn’t get meaningful responses on the electronic equipment. Many female spirit energies were spotted and toward the end of this session a brother & sister who were about 8 years old had taken a liking to one of the guests and followed her around the site.

From the manor house we descended into the very spooky woods, the walk into the woods is scarier in appearance than actually being in the woods but that is because there are so many trees which are exposed out of the ground or knocked over by the strong winds that occur on this hillside.

Once in a familiar place in the woods I started a séance circle so that all the guests could experience a physical paranormal encounter. We were joined by a spirit that I have seen on a couple of previous occasions. He was called Edward and was a local Engineer. Aged in his late 50s and mostly bald with dark brown and grey hair on the back and sides.

Edward started by doing exactly what I asked; to gently move the hands of some of the guests and myself and the three people either side of me felt our hands gently move and when I asked the guests to ask in their heads or for others Edward did exactly what anyone asked with regard to moving hands. After a while Edward obviously got bored of doing what we asked and then started to do what he wanted, which seemed to be to stroke the shoulder of a particular guest, which she found a little odd, although it didn’t frighten her.

Many guests reported that when my hands were near to them they could feel a lot of heat coming from my hands even when I wasn’t touching them.

During this time other guests were gently swayed and rocked from side to side then all of a sudden the two people either side of me were pulled backwards, then pushed forwards and then pulled downwards by our hands towards the ground, which none of us wanted to touch because it was a little muddy!

The séance came to an abrupt end because one person couldn’t follow the simple instruction not to break the circle and due to this incident another guest was feeling unwell and faint and this guest required some attention by me.

I then held an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment

There were several responses but unfortunately not all of them could be understood, the best ones can be heard at: –

After this I turned on my spirit box (a device that scans the FM radio bands at 100ms in reverse) and asked for Edward to say something to us or said one of the guests’ names. Many random words were heard but no answers to our questions.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and one is which many guests had a physical paranormal encounter or were able to have some kind of communication with the spirits that reside within the grounds of the old manor house.

Toys Hill ghost hunt – 23-8-2013

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 23rd August 2013
Toys Hill, Kent

The weather forecast for this event wasn’t brilliant with an anticipation of rain and thunderstorms due, however and fortunately for us this stormy weather never materialised. The night however was relatively warm and the view from the top of the hill was somewhat murky, usually there is a nice view of the South Downs. The paranormal activity started in a very typical way, but as the night progressed so did the activity.

Around the Manor house in what I believe to be the hub of the house I handed out some of our electronic gadgets and after telling people to turn their phones off or to put them onto flight mode the EMF (Electro Magnetic Field) detectors started to show spikes of activity with several “hot spots” becoming apparent. The guests wandered freely around the site trying to communicate with the spirits and I joined various people in different parts of the site. On the terraces there was a varied amount of spirit energies, one of which was called David who was in his early 20s and whilst he didn’t say what he did for a living he was obviously an outdoor worker as he wore heavy and dirty boots. The guests were able to ask him personal questions and get sensible answers. Many guests also took photos during this time and some had light anomalies (orbs) whilst other had more interesting mists that appeared at the edge of their photos but not all the photos, it was like the spirits were teasing us.

I also saw a butler, probably the senior butler Alfred who didn’t interact with anyone, he did watch us closely, although I have seen this particular spirit before.

Various groups of people whilst wandering around had electronic communication with different spirits including a maid called Alice who was in her 20s and of a slim build, with light brown hair neatly tied at the back, who was attracted to the younger members of our group.

After telling the guests about certain smells that people in the past have smelt at this site which are nothing to do with the woods and parkland today but not telling what type of smells one guest said that she thought she smelt floor polish but didn’t tell me immediately as she thought that it sounded silly or part of her imagination.

From here we moved to the woods, as the séances that I hold in the woods have an altogether different feeling, it is also strangely active in one particular part. On forming a circle and explaining what would happen or might happen several guests arms started to move and when I asked them to ask the spirit whose name was Edward (also a spirit I have met before here) their arms moved on command. Another guest also commented that he felt very warm and even hot on his back, whereas the person standing next to him, felt cold on her back.

After Edward had moved the arms of all of the guests that he could (not everyone) he then proceeded to sway, push and pull backwards other people. Many of these were pushed or pulled back in unison and at one point four people were all moving in exactly the same way, which were small circular motions. One of the younger guests was pulled back more frequently than anyone else and he likened it to being on a boat.

At the end of the séance I asked all guests to think of a question to ask Edward as part of an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice experiment). The results of which can be heard below

http://youtu.be/fT-IBwXPX4I

http://youtu.be/Dy0Pqdf1sQo

http://youtu.be/EArduB9W9Gs

http://youtu.be/0XPupJUVtPk

After this I also tried to use my spirit box (a device that scans the AM or FM radio stations in reverse at 100ms) but unfortunately this didn’t work very well, as for some reason it picked up lots of normal radio signals (usually there are no radio signals in the woods) and whilst I thought I did hear some voices, there was too much radio interference to be positive of this.

Setting up the laser grid also had its own problems as every set of batteries that I put into the device drained almost immediately and I used 5 sets of batteries in a matter of minutes. This phenomena happened frequently on this particular evening, various people had their camera batteries drain almost as soon as they turned them on. This has not happened here before.

After leaving the woods and heading back towards the manor house area, the KII EMF meters and communicators all came back to life with lots of spikes and communication.

All in all a very interesting ghost hunt with some good physical activity felt by the majority of the guests that they could not explain or find a rational answer.

Bicknor Woods ghost hunt – 19-7-2013

Bicknor Woods ghost hunt 19th July 2013
Bicknor, Kent

This was an excellent night to be ghost hunting, quite warm at 15 degrees Celsius no real wind and a low moon with few animal sounds as well.

After making our way across the fields and into the woods I stopped at a familiar point as I could sense that spirit energies would engage with us. After handing out some of our electronic ghost hunting equipment and explaining its use one male spirit energy approached us. His name was Percy, actually it was Percival but he didn’t mind us calling him Percy. He was a local farmer and was quite short and stocky and in his mid-20s and from the early 1900s. He wasn’t too keen on answering questions about himself but when asked if he could make a noise or touch someone, he said he would, however no one really felt any great movements nor did we hear any sounds at the time. However several minutes later and whilst we were communicating with another spirit we all heard some footfall sounds coming from deeper into the woods. The other spirit that we were communicating with was a lady, who looked like she was out for a summer afternoon walk, as she carried a parasol. Also present was a young child who Kym (GHE team) thought was 7 years old, although when asked she said no to seven, however I had heard her answer and asked was she 7 and half years old, to which she replied yes. Kym also thought he name was Isabelle and she confirmed this on our electronic communication device. She was out picking flowers, mainly primroses although when I asked could we smell the flowers she didn’t answer. I would describe her as looking like the archetypal Annie with blondish curly hair and wearing a blue summer dress.

Jamie (guest) walked back along the path with Marc (GHE team) and another guest because they could hear a grunting or growling noise and went to investigate. When they came back Marc told me that Jamie at one point felt her right leg froze and she nearly fell over, when she returned Jamie looked somewhat out of it and her face seemed to be glazed over, like someone who had drunk a lot of alcohol.

I also set up the laser grid and for once brought a small tripod with me so that I didn’t have to hold it, nothing paranormal was seen in the grid although many questions and answers were conducted whilst this was on plus many noises were heard, none of these noises sounded like animals.

From here we moved on to what I call the hanging tree, it isn’t, but it looks like one as the bows of the tree are perfect for hanging a rope. The reason why I came here is because in the past various people have felt some unusual feelings near to this tree. After a while Louise (guest) felt a searing pain in her stomach and as I asked that the spirit step back Marc took several guests deeper into the woods. More or less after they were out of earshot the KII meters lit up, this was the first time all night that they have lit up with such ferocity. Asking the spirit to scroll through the lights did result in the pattern changing although not what we had asked. The spirit responsible was called David who was repeatedly punched and stabbed in the stomach somewhere within these woods and left to die. He wasn’t sure of the year that this took place, although I would have said it was approximately in the 1700s just by what he was wearing. A soon as the other guests returned to us they too felt sick and nauseous.

I decided that it would be better to move back out onto the pathway to hold a séance since the path was flat. However before this we tried using our Ovilus’ as an experiment although some of the word spoken didn’t make any sense, many of the words were Latin, which was confirmed via our communication devices as being attributed to a priest who was standing amongst us.

After hearing many words that made little sense to us I started a séance and ask that the spirit energies move us in some way. The only people who were really affected were the two people standing either side of me and each had their hands moved and when asked by them the spirit were able to follow their commands (each command was asked in their heads). Some of the positions however were very uncomfortable for me as spirit were able to follow their commands quite quickly. When I asked for the spirit energies to push or pull people, they did but they only picked one or two people to move.

At the end of this session I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment and each guest asked a question, followed by 10 seconds of silence.

The results of this can be heard at

As we were making our way out of the woods, lots of footfall sounds were heard behind us similar to the sound of someone following us however nothing was seen.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt with lots of different paranormal experiences for the guests, some were typical of this location and some were a first for here.

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor Ghost Hunt – 12-7-2013

Friday, August 9th, 2013

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 12th July 2013
Toys Hill, Kent

This location is one of the strangest we do, simply because there is no “normal” experience. Every time we come here, things that happened on previous occasions fail to occur, instead something else that we have not encountered before happens.

After making our way to the area where the house once stood and handing out some of our electronic equipment, the guests roamed around. Various contacts were made and there were some usual communication with different spirits. Some were workers from the old house, others were more random, plus various children.

After I had seen three spirits, all female, and maids walk past towards the terraces, I too walked in this direction and although I lost sight of them when near the terraces another male spirit called Simon de Verre stepped forward. He was lurking in the shadows and was stood behind a guest that was seated on a bench. When I informed the guest, she instantly moved away from the bench. Another guest however sat in the same spot and they too noticed that the atmosphere was different. As more people ventured into this area, me and Jason (guest) were being gently swayed and pushed. Each of us held out our hands to try to feel the spirit and whilst we didn’t feel what I would have expected to feel, we noticed that each of our hands were moving in a “breathing” motion. Gently in and out much like someone breathing. Another guest (Sue) felt a pressure on her throat when she was in this area on her own and she also relayed to me what she saw, which looked similar to a cook carrying something.

After many photographs were taken, where some had some strange mists although no orbs or light anomalies we moved into the woods.

Here we formed a séance circle and I encouraged spirits to come forward and touch people or move them. It took a while, but eventually a male spirit aged in his mid-60s and looking rather frazzled or worn out started to affect guests by gently moved their arms. This moved onto gently pushing people and then abruptly stopped. The reason for this was another younger male energy had walked towards us and unusually I could not see any detail, although I knew he was in his early 20s and quite muscular. This particular energy walked around the circle, making people feel uncomfortable. Sam (guest) felt unusually scared and afraid to look behind her. There were some odd sounds coming from that direction, although they sounded more like animals than anything else to me. Then as quickly as he arrived, this particular energy left and the old gent came back. Once again people started to sway and when I asked for him to push or pull people, he did so almost immediately with about half the guests feeling a pulling back sensation, which usually happened quickly and without any warning, which surprised them.

After the séance I turned on my spirit box (a device that scans the FM radio band in reverse at 100ms) and when asking for the spirit to say one of our names, we first heard a faint “Charlotte” and then a very clear “Jason”. Charlotte was not a name of a guest, but Jason was. I then asked for the spirit to tell me how many of us were standing here, or the day of the week. After a short interlude we heard 12. There were 11 of us, although as someone pointed out, with the male spirit this could have been 12 if he was counting himself. Plus it was also the 12th day of July. I did ask some more questions, but sadly no intelligent responses were heard.

Once again an unusual ghost hunt with everyone getting some form of paranormal activity, either by touch, feelings or answering their questions via our electronic equipment.

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt – 28-6-2013

Wednesday, July 24th, 2013

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt 28th June 2013
Sevenoaks, Kent

This location we don’t often investigate, because the walk to get to the site is a very hard and strenuous uphill climb that takes the best part of 20 mins. However it is usually worth the effort as this was one of the first places that we had success using our laser grids outdoors and all guests saw something they could not explain.

The first session I stopped at a crossroad called five ways and after handing out some of our electronic equipment and explaining its use, the communication devices started to pick up on spirit energies and electronic communication commenced. No KII (EMF) energy was detected at this time.

However lots of guests and me saw shadows and lights within the woods that could not be explained as well as hearing voices and whispers which sounded very close to us.

We were joined by a spirit energy called Michael who was in his early 20s and was interested in Millie (guest) and made his presence known to her. There was also a male teenager spirit energy around us who was with his sister called Jessica, although they did not interact with us, just watched. There was also an old gent in his 70s that seemed to be approaching us, but he never arrived.

Many guests took photos and most had some pictures of orbs and light anomalies.

We moved from here on to another cross road and I set up the laser grid. We didn’t see anything anomalous in the laser grid, although when we stood within the light many guests commented that it felt like someone was watching us from the edge of the wood.

Whilst standing within the lights I saw a male spirit energy called Christopher, aged in his late 30s or early 40s who seemed to be interested in us and I asked for him to touch the guests. After we held out our hands he was able to touch some people’s hands and the guests felt that someone was holding their hand, some also felt tingling sensations, heat and a physical touch. Christopher told me that he had committed suicide after his son died in the 1830s. Some guests felt the child energy.

Other guests that were not standing with the majority of us saw shadows of people moving within the woods and voices that seem to draw them further away from us.

While still on this path I decided to conduct a séance to try to get the spirit to move or touch those guests which hadn’t felt anything. After asking for spirit to move us in some way, our arms were moved gently as well as various forms of pulling sensations, sometimes across the group and sometimes downwards. Sue (guest) said that she could taste a metallic taste, this is usually what blood tastes like. Debbie (guest) also felt her rib cage being twisted, she wasn’t moving but she felt that her ribs were being twisted to the left.

This was an interesting ghost hunt and many gets had a physical paranormal experience as everyone either felt spirit energy touch them or move them in some way.

No EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments were undertaken as the noise from cars on the main road could be clearly heard.

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt – 14-6-2013

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 14th June 2013
Toys Hill, Kent

This night was one of the few times that it wasn’t windy or cold at Toys Hill and it was actually a very pleasant evening to be ghost hunting.

Gathered around the site of the old house I handed out various electronic gadgets so that the guests could communicate with the spirits, almost immediately after I had handed them out and explained what each does and after all guests turned off their phones, all the KII (EMF) meters lit up showing that spirit energies were amongst us. It took a while for the communication devices to get a contact, but once they did the activity built and the level of activity intensified. One particular guest felt a touch on her shoulder, which when she told the rest of the group, many of the other guests also said they felt something similar, but dismissed it at the time.

As I was wondering around checking up on the guests who had wandered in all directions, I came across a spirit boy about 10 years old called William, who was attempting to interact with the ghost hunters, but was having difficulty. His mother Catherine had numerous time communicated with the guests but she was encouraging her son to do the same. Many guests also felt tugs on their clothing, which was attributed to William as he tried to get people’s attention.

Whilst I was stood overlooking the terraces talking to another group of guests I could see another male spirit called Geoffrey, he looked like a butler and he was about 40 years old, quite broad shouldered and spoke very well. A guest was standing more or less next to him and she was busy taking photographs and when she turned in the direction that the spirit energy was stood she had many strange photographs, as did the people standing next to me who were also taking photos. The photos looking like they had wisps of mist in them, but given where we were standing (on a hill) mist was very unlikely as it looked like a very clear evening.

As we headed into the woods to conduct a séance, I noticed a male spirit energy followed us from a crossroad, his name was Thomas and he was an engineer who lived in the local vicinity. Once we formed a circle and after I explained the dos and don’ts I asked Thomas to move peoples arms, which he did almost immediately which some guests found unnerving. I then asked for him to push and pull people and this too also spooked the guests especially as some people were being pushed into others, usually quite randomly and with such force that the guests were not able to restrict their movements and just fell into other people, this was very amusing to watch. As the session continued Thomas was able to move more people and move them that they had to step forwards and back to stop themselves falling over. During this session some footfall sounds were heard behind us, which was deeper into the woods and no torch lights were seen and I find it difficult to believe that someone would be walking without a torch in those woods since there are lots of roots from the trees covering the ground and it is very easy to trip over.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and one in which many of the guests had their own paranormal experience.
