EVP – Part One

EVP Evidence (Electronic Voice Phenomena)

We have recorded hundreds of EVPs over the years however some of them are not as clear as we would like. We have always tried not to influence the interpretation of the audio, which is why we don’t tell you what we think is said until after you have heard the file. Admittedly you might need to listen to the file a few times before you hear something that makes sense.

Most of the questions that we get answers to our questions are just one word answers, either Yes or No or something similar. We like it when we get multiple word answers or a sentence as this proves that the spirit is actually answering the question. It is very easy to think you heard your name or a yes or no, but a whole sentence or several words makes the evidence more real.

Some of the best evidence is recorded in the least likely of places or after someone has asked an unusual question and given the number of times that we would undertake an EVP experiment (at least once per event with all groups) we have hundreds of responses from the questions that have been asked.
The best questions are those that the spirit answers which is not the same as what we think or want them to answer. We often tell our guests to ask the sort of question that you would answer if a complete stranger asked you.

This example below; Toys Hill & Weardale Manor is one of those locations which can have so much more activity than you would expect. We would put this location on par with Pluckley Screaming Woods as we have held the most ghost hunts at Pluckley, but Toys Hill was our second popular venue. We don’t visit either of these places anymore due to the fact that we hold events at indoor locations every Friday & Saturday night of a year.

Toys Hill & Weardale Manor Listen here
17th August 2012 and a relatively big group of 11 people. As normal everyone in the group had the opportunity to ask a question and a 5-10 gap of silence for the spirit to answer before moving onto the next person. This answer was one of the clearest we had heard and it was recorded as we were standing beside the Old Water Tower (which is now home to bats).
It is answers like this that we strive to get on all events, the more unusual the question, the more likely the spirit will answer, we have found.

Bicknor Woods has also proved to be another haunted place, a mysterious atmosphere awaits the casual visitor, the church is eerie because it stands alone with just fields surrounding it. The woods which were called Gore Woods in times past hold another gruesome past. The orchards here were supposedly the scene of many illicit encounters and a convenient place to murder someone. Even the locals who live in the village say there are nights which don’t feel right.

Once again this was a group of about 10 people and this time it was a cold night in December
Listen here

This question and answer is the type of question that anyone would answer as it isn’t intrusive at all.

On the same night, another guest asks another good question and you can hear two different responses, probably from two different spirits.

SBox

Sunday, November 22nd, 2020

The SBox

The SBox is a spirit box scanner, similar in nature to a SB-7 Spirit box except this device can record the sweeps and play them back.

Like the SB7 the direction and speed of the frequency scan can be changed, it also does AM as well as FM radio. It has a rechargeable battery, built-in torch and headphone socket and it can be used as a Bluetooth speaker making this piece of kit very versatile.

When using the SBox if it detects a spike when scanning it will stay on that frequency a bit longer in case there is a voice trying to get through. This will hopefully allow multiple words or a full sentence to be heard rather than just one word.

The SBox uses a micro SD card to record (max 32Gb)

We have used this SBox just a few times and it has shown some very promising results and we cannot wait to use it in places which have been incredibly good for spirit box or EVP recordings in the past.
It is too early to say what the pros or cons of the device is, we need to test it some more. But it will be an improvement when trying to record a spirit box session, as previously we would have to have a voice recorder recording the spirit box, this will save having two devices. Whether we record any more spirit voices or it increases the chances of spirit communication remain to be seen.

This normally retails for about $90 and is only available from Ghost Stop.

Hearing Enhancer

Tuesday, July 21st, 2020

Hearing Enhancer

These are commonly used for those who have hearing problems to listen to television at home or for hunters to hear animals. When these devices were first developed no-one had envisaged that they could be useful in the paranormal sector. In fact, few people knew that spirits and ghostly phenomena is generally a few decibels lower that human speech. Often EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomena) must be enhanced so that we can hear the response.

Using these listening devices enables the wearer to hear conversations several meters away, whispers and other quiet noises that would be missed without their use.

A disadvantage is that someone who is not aware that people are wearing these can make loud noises which can be deafening! The other disadvantage is that these are directional, which means you must point the device in the direction you want to hear or enhance otherwise you will not hear anything at all. Another problem is that because whispers can be heard as loudly as someone standing next to the wearer voices and other noises can be easily misinterpreted.

We have used these in all manner of places and sometimes have heard things which we would not have if we were not using these enhancers. In some large venues or those that are very quiet these devices have been very useful as two people standing tens of meters away from each other can have a conversation without the need for two way radios and conduct individual EVP experiments without disturbing the other person.

Whilst these items were once popular with ghost hunters, they aren’t anymore, this is due to their limited use, the size of the device and now it is possible to get better audio recording devices and microphones which can record at very low decibels. These can still be found occasionally on Amazon or eBay for about £30

Voice Recorder

Tuesday, July 14th, 2020

Voice Recorder

These simple voice recorders are used to record questions asked by us to spirit in the hope that we record an answer. This would be known as an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena). Since spirit voices can be quiet it is imperative when asking the questions to be as quiet as possible. When we analyse the audio recording, we can hear if there is a spirit response (although we may not clearly understand the words at first).
Often the spirit voice is quiet or at least lower than our own voices and we must listen for the tell-tale signs. On a computer using certain software it is possible to see the waveform of a spirit voice. Oddly or helpfully every spirit voice starts the same way when looking at the waveform, no matter what the response to the question is.

Since most spirit voices can be quiet (some are loud) we must remind people to be quiet, no talking or whispering as this could be mistaken for a spirit voice. No movement as clothing makes a noise, especially winter jackets. Plus, all mobile phones to be switched off as our audio equipment will pick up the carrier signals for incoming sms text or phone calls.

It is also important after asking a question to leave a silence period, so that spirit have the time to answer. We usually tell people to be silent for 5-10 seconds after asking a question.
It can be fulfilling to have an answer to a question you asked to spirit. It does not happen all the time, but with practise it is possible to have quality answers. Obviously, the questions need to be specific to the venue or location or the spirit. We often tell people to ask the sort of question you would answer if someone asked you that question. E.g. What’s your name? Did/do you work/live here?

If you have a rapport with a spirit (and have listened back to some recordings and know that you have some responses, even though you may not know what is said until after the investigation), you can ask more detailed questions or more personal questions. The idea through EVP is to be able to gather tangible evidence that could potentially be looked up or is known. One of our favourite questions is to ask spirit; how many people are in this room? Or how many can you see? Quite often we have had the right answer spoken back to us.

The simple Olympus ones that we use VN2100PC and VN3100PC are readily available on Amazon & eBay and can be picked up for about £15 each. You can get more expensive recorders including Tascam recorders, but the results are much the same.

You could probably use an old tape-based system, but in the digital age it is a lot easier to transfer a digital recording on a PC.

Explosion Museum – 9th May 2015 (Wayne & Paula)

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Explosion Museum ghost hunt 9th May 2015
Gosport, Hampshire

Location: Missile Warehouse and Cottages
We used Ghost Pros, K2 Meters, SB7 Spirit Box, Laser Grid, EM Pump, Mel Meter, REM Pod, Ovilus lll and Infrared Non Contact Thermometer.

Session 1 with Steve

Straight away we had activity near the coffin carrier with the ghost pros where we met Arnold/Arnie who introduced himself initially to Steve and then the guests with communication through the ghost pros. He was a maintenance man working on the machines and firearms in the warehouse we established him to be in his 60s. His son was also with us, his name was Chris and he was 14 which we discovered through the ghost pros.
We then used the SB7 as they both seemed willing to communicate with us which they did. Firstly Chris said “Hello” very clearly then we heard both Chris and Arnold say there names through the spirit box.
A couple of the guests felt cold spots on their shoulders so with the non contact thermometer we managed to get readings to validate this as their normal temperature was around 20oC and the cold spots were showing 17.5oC
Also Steve managed to pick up on many spirit “working” as they would have done when they were alive unaware that we were there.

Session 2 with Louise

In the 2nd session we had a spirit come forward that we had met on a previous investigation here in February. Her name is Carly and she is a little girl that we think lived in the cottages that are linked to the Missile rooms and that she is probably in there playing and being cheeky. She didn’t communicate that much but she did let us know that she was there and that she wanted to play with the interactive bear which we had with us last time but unfortunately left it behind on this investigation.
We used 2 Mel meters on the coffin carrier which both spiked to 0.4mg at various times from a baseline reading of 0.0mg,but what was interesting was that when we reviewed our camcorder footage when we got home we captured one of the Mel meters moving by itself, only a very small amount but nevertheless it moved without being touched by any of us.
After this one of our male guests had some great activity with the K2 meter that he was using, spirit was able to light it up to amber and hold it there and then when asked able to light up to the red.

Rye Castle – 23rd April 2015 (Wayne & Paula)

Friday, July 3rd, 2015

Rye Castle ghost hunt 25th April 2015
Rye, East Sussex

The Old Mortuary

Session 1 with Steve
We used K2 meters,Ghost Pros, SB7 Spirit Box, EM Pump, REM Pod, Mel Meter, 360 Parascope, Ovilus lll and Tarquin the Interactive Bear.
We handed out K2s and Ghost Pros to the guests as we normally do, having activity on the ghost pros almost immediately with some small spikes on both of the K2s. Shortly after the activity started we realised that all of the ghost pros were acting in a way that none of us had seen before, they were all flashing the same pattern as each other but it was a constant random pattern with simultaneous needle spikes, this carried on in short bursts throughout the session.
Steve pointed out that we were not alone as he could see a spirit in the corner of the room who had been drinking heavily and staggered around at the back of the room. We placed a 360 Parascope in this area which immediately picked up some static and lit from one side to the other as if someone had “brushed” past it exactly where Steve had seen the spirit.
Paula and two of the guests experienced cold spots on them feeling cold on the back of their legs and arms whilst I also felt a temperature drop and static energy around me as I was kneeling to “pray” in front of the cross. Tarquin also mentioned a few times about a temperature change.
Steve and one of the guests heard a high pitched squeal come from the area in front of the cross just before I knelt in front of it. It was also noted that the batteries in our equipment were being drained more so than at other locations.

Session 2
Same activity as before with the ghost pros but not quite as badly affected. We managed to get a few answers through the ghost pros but not enough to gather a story on any one of the spirits that were trying to communicate.
Soon after we started we all heard noises from the top of the stairwell as if someone was walking around, firstly hearing creaking then footsteps then tapping and finally something that sounded like a coin being dropped on the floor.
We decided to try the Ovilus lll to see if any relevant words would come through this device but again as in session 1 it was being affected by this area and refused to work properly, incidentally we tested all of the affected devices and they all worked as they should once we had left the area.

Free time
During free time whilst in the entrance/shop area we were speaking to the resident guide about John Breads who had killed a man in the churchyard opposite the castle. He pointed to one corner of the tower and told us that this was where John Breads spent the last 60 days of his life so I immediately went to this area with the Ovilus lll device. The first 2 words that sounded from the Ovilus were “Centre” and “Stabbed”.

Marwell Hall – 11th April 2015 (Wayne)

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Marwell Hall ghost hunt 11th April 2015
Winchester, Hampshire

Seymour Room

Equipment used :- Ghost Pros, K2 Meters, Mel meter, Laser Grid, Full Spectrum Video and Still Cameras, SB7 Spirit Box and Digital Voice Recorders in all sessions.

Session 1

As always ghost pros and K2 meters were given to the guests to see if any communication could be established with spirit, almost immediately the ghost pros were lighting to indicate spirit presence.
2 female guests were talking to a female spirit that claimed to be Jane Seymour and another that said she was the spirit of the bride who became trapped in a chest and was not found until many years later.
We started a spirit box session and noticed a female scream lasting about 3 seconds over multiple sweeps, this was also heard by a male guest. Were these screams of the trapped bride?

Session 2

This next session became much more active with guests interacting with spirit and asking plenty of questions through the ghost pros.
We had male and female spirits present. A female guest managed to communicate with the bride on several occasions and also a male spirit that worked at the hall who died in the 1880s.
Another female guest using a ghost pro was speaking to a chamber maid in her 20s from the 1800s and an older chamber maid in her 50s from the 1700s.
We held EVP and Spirit box sessions but no voices were captured.

Session 3

Activity started before the guests came into the area, as just outside the doorway our next group could already sense spirit. A couple of the guests were being prodded by “unseen hands” and when they questioned Steve (GHE team) he told them that there had been the spirit of the “house master ” standing in that spot all evening and he keeps prodding people. All of the group where taking photos in and around the area before we went into the Seymour Room where the guests carried on taking photos as they were capturing many unexplained lights, orbs and the odd mist here and there. Ghost pros and K2s were being used by the guests that weren’t taking photos but they were having photos taken of them while they were trying to communicate.
Michaela captured 2 very bright anomalies located against the ornate woodwork which actually looked like light bulbs but clearly were not.
Free time

We (Wayne and Paula) joined with Louise (GHE team)  and the female guest and her boyfriend from Session 2 and went for a snoop around the building and eventually made our way to the room upstairs that Steve was using for all of his séance sessions, where we met Kerry (GHE team) and some of the other guests. We started to call out for spirit to copy our tapping and whistling but all was very quiet. After chatting about table tipping the huge table at Fort Amherst we decided to try table tipping with a large table that was in the room. The room is carpeted and the table has metal feet and was very heavy but we all gathered (probably about 8 of us) round the table and began to put our energy in to trying to get a spirit to move the table, which it did faster and faster the table then moved bit by bit across the room until it came to a standstill, then with no warning slid by itself in one smooth movement, amazing everyone, quickly back towards Kerry and Paula for about 12 inches.

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 18-4-2014

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 18th April 2014
Rochester, Kent

This particular venue is a favourite with many of our team, the reason behind this is that we now know what areas of the Fort are the most active and can more or less guarantee some form of paranormal activity when in those particular areas. We look forward to every visit because this fort is very active, very haunted and although we know what to expect, we still get surprised by what happens to the guests.

As always I choose to hold my sessions in the Counterscarp galleries, not only is the area very interesting as it involves walking through a very long tunnel, but it is also the most physically demanding as the staircase goes underneath the dry moat. The level of activity here changes from one investigation to another although there are always similar experiences felt by the guests.

The first group we encountered a male spirit who I have met before in this particular part of the Fort. His name is Biffa or Bernard to his mum, aged in his 30s and another spirit called Justin, both it seems were prisoners who were put to work to build the fort in the late 1800s.

The séance session started with some gentle arm movement, mostly on the instructions of those who asked for it, those guests who didn’t say anything or encourage the spirit to move them remained stationary. Once those guests who were actively encouraging the spirit to move their arms they then asked for the spirit to move or push them. Within a matter of minutes several guests were being pushed, swayed or pulled backwards. Some people were also being moved in circular motions.

The second group to the Counterscarp galleries felt some movement but the majority of the guests wanted to ask questions and conduct their own ghost hunt and use their ghost hunting equipment. It transpired from their questions that the spirit that was present was also a prisoner who had murdered his mother, a dog and prostitutes of Rochester. This spirit died in prison.

On our way out several of us clearly heard footsteps behind us as we walked out of the tunnel and back to the main part of the fort.

The third group we were joined by a familiar spirit (to me) his name was Captain Daniel Bedford, a First World War soldier. Daniel started to move the hands and arms of the majority of guests which quickly transpired into twisting people’s arms together. Several times the people either side of me felt a weight in their arms which resulted in us being dragged down to the floor by our arms. Michelle (guest) said that she didn’t want to face the floor but no matter how many times she said this and resisted the sensation, she ended up on the floor!

Many people of the group were being pulled downwards by their arms, but once on the floor the movements continued and several guests and I were pulled backwards so that we were lying on the floor. This has happened before but never have so many people been involved, it was a chaotic scene with people not only on the floor but arms entwined and to the point where none of us had any idea how we could untangle ourselves and remain holding hands. The spirit however knew exactly how to untangle people, although this wasn’t a quick operation.

At the end of this séance session I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. The results of this will be published at a later date.

Unusually I decided to hold another séance with the intention this time of the spirit moving everyone in turn so that all the guests could feel and hopefully know that they were being moved by unseen hands rather than being pulled by someone they were holding hands with. Daniel complied with this and moved everyone in more gentle ways by pulling them backwards so that each person had to take a step back to avoid falling over. During this time and to avoid people being consciously aware that they were moving all the instructions to the spirit were asked by me as thoughts, therefore none of the guests knew who I was asking Daniel to move, the guests only knew it was them when they found themselves being moved!

At the end of our controlled sessions, we allow the guests to go to the areas that they want to, to conduct their own ghost hunt or to experience a particular area on their own. I joined a group in the Caponier during a Table Tilting & Ouija board session.

As soon as I entered the room I saw a spirit that I had not seen before. He was called Cecil, who was a well-spoken Second World War soldier who was busy moving a table at guest’s request.

I also joined in with the Ouija board which is something I don’t often do, because as I was explaining to the guests I ask questions about things I want to know the answer to, not what the spirit did when they were in a physical body nor anything to do with my life. I want to know the answers to questions which are more spiritual in nature. The spirit energy who was called Robert, another World War Two soldier answered by using the letters and numbers of the Ouija board. Below are the questions and answers.

Q: What colour is the sky in the spirit world?
A: Red.
Q: How many levels of the spirit world exist to your knowledge?
A: 3
Q: What is the largest animal in the spirit world?
A: Oup, a whale

After asking these I then asked the spirit to use the numbers as a scale of difficulty (0-9) for different activities that we ask of all spirit.
Glass work = 3, EVP = 7, Table tilting = 8, Ouija board = 3 or 4, Séances = 9, Manifestation or moving inanimate objects = 99

This was an excellent ghost hunt, with lots of people feeling, sensing and experiencing paranormal activity first hand and participating in paranormal experiments that they had not encountered before.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 22-3-2014

Friday, April 4th, 2014

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 22nd March 2014
Chatham, Kent

This event was our first public event of the year at Fort Horsted, the week before we held a special invitation only event for our frequent customers, but since this was a public event many of the guests probably didn’t know what to expect. Fortunately we have done many ghost hunts at this Fort to know where the best areas to get ghostly activity or for the guests to experience the activity.

We usually hold three one hour sessions so that all guests can experience different parts of the fort with different team members doing different activities. So I chose the furthest area away from all the other groups; a room which is right at the edge of the fort.

We were joined quite quickly by a spirit called Philip, he was a Doctor from the 1880s and 37 years old.

When asking Philip to move us as we were standing in a séance circle James (guest) who was next to me could feel Philip’s energy and the fact that James was swaying or rather being pulled backwards, to fight this sensation James was pulling himself back upright. James found this a little unnerving to start with but like all things the more he got used to the sensation the easier it became for Philip to move him.

Whilst James was being pulled back lots of guests experienced their arms being moved and unfortunately for the people either side of me, my hands were often dragged to floor and on one occasion the letters P and O were drawn in the dust on the floor.

I asked Philip what the O stood for but didn’t get a response.

As the guests all got used to the sensation Philip was able to move more and more people until everyone had been moved in some way. A few times we all heard the sound of a children’s toy, it sounded like a toy train and immediately after this we all heard a stone being kicked or thrown. Since there are a lot of stones on the floor in the corridor we could not be sure it was thrown at us and because of the acoustics we couldn’t be sure of the direction. But since we were all holding hands it could not have been any of us.

At the end of this session I held an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. There were several responses to people’s questions but not all could be clearly heard, the two clearest ones though can be heard at:- http://youtu.be/d3n7GyJYi7w
http://youtu.be/6o6RBu3J6qw

The second group to this same area, Philip was still present and in fact he stayed with me in the room all night. Once again arm movement was felt by the majority of the guests relatively quickly as well as some pushing and people being pulled back. This group however were not as nervous as the first group and Philip was able to push people and twist them into some very unusual and sometimes painful positions.

For some reason Philip wanted to touch people’s shoes with whichever hands he was able to move, which meant that some people ended up getting all the dirty dust on their shoes.

During the séance two guests became incapacitated and had to be removed from the séance. Gary (guest) in particular just felt drained and he described the feeling similar to feeling faint.

The third group were very nervous compared to the first two groups, this is usually because my sessions are held in virtual darkness and people feel more vulnerable when they can’t see the walls of the room, let alone where the doorway is.

However Philip still attempted to move people and as the group became more comfortable with their surroundings and what I was trying to achieve (which is to ask the spirit to move people) more people’s arm were being lifted and when a few guests least expected it they were pulled backwards. Two guests though had laughing fits for no reason. This is something which we have encountered before at the Fort although not in this area, but neither of the guests knew why they were laughing and according to their friends this was so out of character for them.

The rest of the time we allow the guests to hold their own ghost hunt or to experience other areas of the Fort under our supervision but not holding set activities.

I joined a group in the Counterscarp Galleries (which is an area that is usually out of bounds) and some guests asked that I do a séance circle. We were joined by a spirit that I had met the previous week called Captain Bell (he pushed people to the floor) and two other spirits who I have seen before although not for a while, they were both prisoners who probably were employed whilst serving their sentence to build the place.

All of these spirits combined their energies to move everyone’s arms although some more than others, which very quickly progressed into people being twisted up and a strange lunging sensation towards people, not always their faces but usually. One guest was “picked on” by the spirit and he was forced to the floor until his head touched the floor. I attributed this to Captain Bell as that is what he did to two people the week before.

This was once again an enjoyable ghost hunt with many guests getting some form of paranormal activity which they could not explain or an experience that they enjoyed.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 15-3-2014

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Fort Horsted invitation ghost hunt 15th March 2014
Chatham, Kent

This special ghost hunt was only open to our best customers; the plan for the evening was complicated to say the least as I didn’t want to have team members only being in one area throughout the night. The objective was to have different team members in different areas doing different activities and for the guests to choose what they wanted to do and who they would join for each of the three hourly sessions.

Surprisingly it wasn’t too hard for all the guests to understand, however as a team it was a little more confusing because no-one knew neither where they were going nor who with.

I started in an area only known as 36, this is a magazine room at the far end of the Fort which in the past has proved to be a very active room.

After started a séance circle and asking for any spirit to move us in any way they could, we were joined by a spirit called Michael who was a carpenter. He appeared to be wearing dungarees and a vest and had a carpenters pencil behind one ear. He was about 5’11” in height and of a stocky build aged in his mid-40s.

Michael started by moving our hands gently and when the majority of people had their hands moved (usually on command) he progressed to gently pushing and twisting people. However this turned very quickly into pushing people into other people and twirling others on the spot. Some of our hands were dragged on to the floor, which is fairly common and then once the majority were kneeling down Michael was able to push people more easily. David (guest) had his face stroked first and then as Michael became more adept at moving us was able to push David on to the floor face first, much the amusement of the rest of us.

Everybody felt some movements, some were treated to more forceful movements whilst the rest had more gentle movements and several guests had their faces, chins and shoulders rubbed. Odd smells seemed to fade in and out of the room with some smelling a sulphuric aroma whilst others smelling a lead paint aroma.

As the session went on Jason (GHE Camera) thought he heard a voice say “It’s alright” although no-one else heard this. We are hopeful that this will be captured on the video footage. Several other noises were heard throughout the session including something being dropped or thrown. It sounded like a pebble being kicked across the floor. Lights and other sounds were also seen and heard coming from the entrance to the room.

After we had all had our arms stretched towards the ceiling and dragged on the floor Michael tired of our presence at started pushing some of the guests and pulling those with their back towards the door in the direction of the door. We took this to mean that he wanted us to leave the room. So I asked him to step back and I closed the séance circle.

The Second group I chose to go to room 10, which we call it the spider room, because this is predominantly where the majority of the biting cave spiders reside and nest. The best way to visit this area is not to look up especially if you are afraid of spiders!

After forming a séance circle in the left hand room a spirit called John joined us, he was a plumber/boiler maintenance man, very plump and came from the late 1940s. He started by gentle moving arms and then pushing and pulling the guests backwards. This mostly happened very randomly with no-one knowing who was going to be moved and when. Arm movement was restricted to me and the people either side of me but everyone got pushed or swayed. I then left the séance circle but stayed in the room to try to direct the spirit to move the guests which worked well.

During this whole session we could all hear some odd noises, the funny thing is that we could all clearly hear the noises when we were talking, but as soon as we stopped the noises seemed to be quieter. The odd sounding noises ranged from whispering and mumbling to full blown talking, which I went to check to see if anyone was near us. They weren’t and it was quieter outside of the room. Apparently when I left the room everyone felt the atmosphere change and all the candles in the room flickered violently, but when I returned the candles didn’t flicker at all.

Other noises continued as we moved throughout the tunnel complex with the sound of footsteps on concrete, but most of this tunnel the floor is either broken stones or loose sand.

The third séance session was held in area 26 and more of an experiment for me as I wanted to try to something that I encountered a few months ago at another venue. I wanted to direct spirit to do particular things to certain people without their knowledge. So I started in the circle to help build the energy levels and then after there was some gentle arm movements and gentle pushing I left the circle. As I moved around the room I asked the spirits to move people that I pointed to. There were three spirit energies in the room. One was a Captain Bell who was a Second World War soldier, the other two joined us a little while into the session, they were both prisoners but neither gave me their name. All three spirit energies were quite happy to push and pull the guests.

As it is quite difficult to explain what happened to whom and how, the video of this session will be published so that everyone can see the result. Generally though, most of what I asked to happen to the particular guests that I pointed to (without them seeing) happened.
http://youtu.be/W6CRd1RYo5o
http://youtu.be/lm1GjoCb6hs
http://youtu.be/gg1WQbBgGZs

At one point the majority of the circle were on the floor, two guests (Darren & Russell) had their faces pushed onto the floor and when they stood back up they looked like they had just returned from a coal mine! This proved extremely funny for everyone else!

After these controlled sessions we then allowed people to go to various parts of the Fort to experience activities that they hadn’t experienced before or for us to try experiments with the guests.

I joined a group in room 36 who were with Sue & Kerry (GHE team) who were attempting a human pendulum experiment. When I walked in the room they asked me for some more questions to ask as they had run out of ideas. However I was more concerned with a spirit that I have seen many times in this room. Her name was Annie and she was a Nurse. She also took a dislike to Darren (who was the pendulum) and she wanted to do something different to Darren.

I then asked one of the guests to leave the room so that I could tell him what Annie was going to do and then we both re-joined the room.

Darren started to feel his legs and knees shaking and after much encouragement from the other guests in the room Darren started to feel his right leg lift off the floor, he also said that he felt dizzy and strange. I stood behind him and placed my hand on his back to give him more energy until Darren started to sway and he seemed to stand in an odd position. I then asked Mark (guest & the person I told) to come and place his hand where mine was. This is when it got really interesting as Mark and I had to stop Darren from falling over many times. It was similar to a Weeble, wobbling all over the place but not falling over because we were holding him up. Annie however made Darren feel odd and when she couldn’t do anything more than lift one leg, she did manage to lift one of his arms and make him shake violently.

Annie had told me she wanted to try and make Darren walk or move him by his legs. Whilst this didn’t really happen it was brilliant to see a person affected in this way as Darren had no idea what was going to happen. [We have had this happen to another guest at another location, which was filmed. – July 2013 at Fort Borstal to Charlotte]

This was an excellent ghost hunt with lots of activity throughout all sessions and with all team members. Hopefully we achieved what we set out to do, which was capture and record some amazing activity for the guests as the majority were experienced ghost hunters.
