Pluckley Screaming woods ghost hunt – 9-12-2011

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

Pluckley Screaming woods is usually quite a scary place however it was less scary than normal because the skies were clear and it was a full moon and after ones eyes adjusted to the dark it was very easy to navigate the paths without the aid of a torch and being that it is December it was also extremely cold but this did not deter us from experiencing the ghostly goings on of Pluckley woods.

Whilst we were all getting accustomed to our surroundings, because the moonlight made the woods less scary near the car park whereas deeper into the woods everything was lit and seemed much more open that it actually is. I noticed that it was much quieter than normal, I mean there were less animal sounds than normal, as usually there are bird calls and scuttling sounds of rabbits, foxes and rats. Whether the full moon has this effect on the animals I do not know.

After starting our first séance a male spirit energy called Tom joined us, he was approximately 62 years old and stood about 5’8” in height and he pushed a wooden cart and I sensed that he was a market trader or someone who sold his produce in a town.

Very quickly Tom or Thomas as he preferred to be called started move the arms of many of the guests and every time I asked the guest in question ask nicely for their arms to be moved in a direction of their choice and each time Thomas obliged, many of the guests had never experienced anything like this before and were genuinely dumb-founded when it happened to them. I also asked that Thomas push people as and when he could and although that sort of action usually starts with me on this occasion it didn’t and quite out of the blue Tash was pulled backwards much to her surprise. Since I enjoy it when guests get manipulated by spirit I asked for Thomas to do this again and this time Tash had to step back to avoid falling over. Alan also felt some light pushing but could not be sure if it was spirit or whether it was him.

Many of the guests also noted that it seemed warmer inside the circle than outside, many could feel a radiation of heat from the centre of the circle.

After this séance I conducted the first EVP experiment, the results of which are still being analysed.

Our second vigil in another area was a strange one not least because of the light but mainly because most people felt uneasy and they kept seeing shadows and movement further along the path, although it was a little windy, and the trees creaked and groaned.

A male energy called Alex joined us he was 25 years old and of a stocky build wearing green moleskin trousers, brown leather boots and a white granddad shirt and gave his passing as 1880s. He looked like a farmhand, also further along the path was a female energy who gave her name as Fairweather (I assumed this to be her surname) as she seemed to be Alex’s wife, she was quite tall with long ginger hair and looked very much Nicole Kidman in her younger days.

Also in this area we all heard some odd grunting sounds and none of us could decide what animal (if it were an animal) made this noise. We also heard footfalls these sounded like a person approaching us. This made most of the guests uneasy although this is a sound which I have heard many times in that particular area.

The next area we moved to the extent of the woods and came across a spirit called Trevor Simpson who told me that on the spur of the moment had decided to commit suicide in 1978. According to him his life was not worth living and he was suffering from money issues. This energy seemed to be very angry and when I asked for him to make himself known to the guests he refrained from doing much of anything, although he did stand very close to many of the guests and some of these guests felt light touches or a strange feeling behind them. When I asked (via the EMF metre – to light the red light) whether he would like us to go the EMF lit up a lot, however there was also an old lady passing but neither of the spirits actually did anything definite to any of the guests.

Whilst making our way out of the woods, as it was now very cold and many people were feeling the need to walk to warm up we stopped in another very active place, the EMF activity was extremely high. After started a séance a male spirit energy called Simon joined us, he didn’t want to talk about himself only to confirm that he had passed over in the 1950s. Simon proceeded to push people and move arms of several of the guests and at one point the two people either side of me were being bent over by spirit and it was very forceful.

I had the strange sensation that my lungs were burning like I had inhaled some chemical, whether this was due to the extreme cold I don’t know, but this feeling passed as soon as the séance ended. Lots of people including myself reported that when we finished our back were hurting, this to me is strange as this is what I do and I have never felt this kind of pain after holding a séance before.

I conducted another EVP experiment at this location but the results of which are still being analysed.

Whilst we were walking out of the woods the coldness had affected the woods and the puddles and there was a definite crunching underfoot and ice formed in the puddles, it was obviously so cold to one guest as whilst walking he hadn’t noticed that he had lost a shoe, he was that cold.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and generally much more activity is experienced in the colder months since there are less people in the woods wandering around trying to scare themselves or create a nuisance.
