Timeball Tower Museum, Deal ghost hunt – 27-1-2012

The Timeball Tower Museum Private Ghost Hunt 27th January 2012

The Timeball Tower which is in Deal, Kent is a little gem of a building. Tucked away in this part of Kent, no-one would know how important this building once was. For those who don’t know, the Timeball was dropped at 1.00pm everyday so that maritime people would know the time. The signal for this came from Greenwich via the telegraph system.

The Timeball Tower then is all about time and the measurement of it, which for our purposes means that it is not a quiet building as there are clocks on every floor, some gently ticking, while others loudly clanking away. However this did not stop us enjoying the evening as this was a private event, the majority of the people knew about the Timeball Tower.

We started on the top floor and like many venues that have not had paranormal investigations held in them before, it took a while for the spirit energies to realise what was happening and to interact with us. Our EMF meters showed a small building up of energy surrounding the mechanism of the timeball and after about twenty minutes we were getting strong pulses and our dialogue equipment was also picking up spirit energies.

From the dialogue meters we established there was a female energy called Annabelle who was aged in her early 20s, smartly dressed and used to work in the building in 1908. She seemed a shy girl but after a while she began to “talk” and it transpired that she was either pushed or fell from the roof of the building. What she was doing on the roof remains a mystery.

A second energy was also communicating via the dialogue meter, his name was Gordon and he was a well-built man, about 5’10” in height. Aged in his mid-50s and dressed in Navy uniform and wore a navy coloured peaked flat cap. He gave me the impression that he was from 1870s.

Throughout this session we could all hear various noises on the floor below, but there were no clocks on that floor that were that noisy. A guest volunteered to go down to the floor below, but as soon as they left us those loud noises ceased.

After a short break we resumed the investigation on the top floor and I set up the laser grid to see if the energies that were present could manifest themselves somehow. Although nothing noteable happened at first some guests could see lights and orbs within this grid, according to the guests the lights were white and red in colour, whereas the laser light was green.

During my whistle experiment a whistle was heard a few people but unfortunately not recorded on our audio recorders, although it may have been recorded via our video cameras, but the footage is still being analysed for anomalies.

Once again, whilst we were all on this floor many loud noises were heard on the floor below but as soon as someone went down to listen to them, the noises stopped.

The majority of the group made their way down to the second floor, as it was relatively cold on the top floor (there was no heating in this building) but I and another guest stayed behind to do some EVP experiments. From the recordings there were two EVPs recorded. http://youtu.be/HkC04pK4uOg

After the EVP recording session, I joined the rest of the group on the second floor and we attempted some scrying using the screen of a TV, all those who took part saw their features change as many different energies participated. Some of the guests found this to be a frightening experience!

Our final session we decided to hold a Ouija board session, which meant carrying a table from the ground floor to the top (only when we finished, did we notice the legs were detachable!)

The first energy who presented themselves on the Ouija board didn’t actually want to communicate with us, nor could they spell, so after about 20 minutes and very little activity a “proper” energy started to move the planchette. This spirit was called Andrew Dafny, aged 35 and from 1648 and was a Burmese citizen who belonged to some religious order, but one he would not divulge. I asked whether he came here specifically to communicate with us, as his actions on the board we precise and he knew to return to the centre of the board after answering a question. He said Yes. This raised lots of questions from the guests, all of which were answered by Andrew.

This was a great venue; all the guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves since this was the first time that they had attended a paranormal night. Considering the ticking of the clocks the EVPs are some of the clearest we have recorded.

I would like to thank the Trustees of the Timeball Tower Museum for allowing us to conduct ghost hunts at The Timeball Tower Museum.
