Fort Amherst – 4th March 2016 – Steve

Fort Amherst ghost hunt 4th March 2016
Chatham, Kent.


This marks 10 years of me going to Fort Amherst for ghost hunts, I have no idea how many times I’ve visited, one day I’ll work it out but needless to say that every time I visit something different or interesting happens on a paranormal level.

My first session in the Upper Gun floor the guests experienced lots of movement; arms being lifted, swaying, pushing and being pulled backwards. One guest also felt being prodded in his back as well as feeling cold spots. This was all attributed to a young male spirit called Jez or Jeremia. He was 15 or 16 years old and from 1660s and was a Soldier.

In the Sally Port I saw a dark mass, like a shadow behind two of the guests although there was a female spirit in the room as she was waiting for us to leave.

The second group once again experienced lots of arm movement, pushing and swaying. Although this time there was a more Nordic feel about it. The arm movements were that of a Nordic greeting.

Once again cold and warm spots were felt by the guests.

There was also a female spirit from 1700s but she did not give her name and continued to watch us.

The third group didn’t experience much at all, although they didn’t ask for anything to happen or seem to engage with the activity.

All in all, an excellent ghost hunt with the majority of the guests getting some paranormal occurrence or evidence of the paranormal in their sessions.

Charlton House – 20th November 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

Charlton House ghost hunt 20th November 2015
Greenwich, London


Area: Long Gallery
Equipment: Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Ouija

Having a quick walk around with Louise (team) I saw a dark shadow of a person on the stairs.  We continued upstairs and whilst setting up with Louise we both had an uneasy feeling in one of the upstairs room, and whilst trying some table tipping in that room a door started moving, when checking inside, seeing nothing, Louise closed the door and it was pulled shut with force from her hand.  Louise decided she wanted to work in that room, and as we went to leave we heard what sounded like one of the chairs moving across the carpet, but couldn’t see any chair, or table had been moved.  On leaving again we heard the same noise again, but again couldn’t see anything that had moved.  The third time whilst walking out we heard it again but again saw nothing different.

With my first group we started with a séance circle to invite the spirit to join us, and whilst doing this one of the guests noticed his torch (which was turned on) move on the table.  Starting with the Ouija we were hearing noises and creaks around us, but with no movement on the glass we tried with the dowsing rods & pendulums.  The guests were communicating with two spirits, a husband and wife who had lived here.  We tried to work out the year, but we all had different: 1550’s, 1800’s and 2000’s.  Alex saw a light/orb with his eyes, and was getting a lot of activity in the area he was standing, using his dowsing rods.

With my second group we were communicating with spirits using the rods & pendulums, and whilst using the Ouija we were seeing shadows and hearing noises in the room.  But with only a little movement with the glass, we went to explore the adjoining rooms.  We were all drawn to the top of the staircase, sensing a female spirit that may have been pushed here.

With the last group, we tried the Ouija at the top of the staircase and did get some slight movement, but not enough to communicate.  However, myself and Eve (guest) were getting a sharp stabbing pain to the back of our heads, felt very sore and burning.  Tom’s (guest) head torch had also started flashing, and to our surprise when we asked for the flashing to stop/start it would do so on command.

Landguard Fort – 4th October 2014 (Kym)

Tuesday, November 11th, 2014

Landguard Fort ghost hunt 4th October 2014
Felixstowe, Suffolk

Area: Guard House with adjoining cell to rear
Equipment: Writing Planchette, KII’s, Ghost Pro’s, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums

Group B – I had been looking forward to coming back to Landguard Fort since our last visit in April. One of my favourite places and I started by showing the guests how to use the rods and pendulums.  Once everyone had established their yes & no’s, we asked spirit who they were.  We had a male soldier, British and over 50.  We asked spirit to point the rods to where he was standing, and three of the four rods all pointed in the same direction.  We did use the Ghost Pro too which was answering questions.  We then moved to the cell and tried the writing planchette, but no movement, however some of us were swaying whilst kneeling on the floor and leaning on the table.  We did hear noises and footsteps near us, and were feeling cold breezes.  With just 10 minutes left we moved to the shower area and spent a little time in there.

Group C – With my next group we started with the rods & pendulums and had a lot of movement.  Most guests had a male spirit, but one person had a female.  The male was again a British Soldier, and had died here in battle.  One guest’s pendulum was rotating continuously in very large circles, and would change direction when asked.  We asked spirit to do this to the rods, and all started rotating, slowly, but kept going all the way round.  Again we asked spirit to point the rods to where he was standing, and they pointed to the same place as previous group.  We moved to the cell but had no movement on the writing planchette, so we took the Ouija table to the bathroom.  Although the glass didn’t move, the table was gently rocking whilst everyone’s fingers were on the glass.  Some guests were being swayed too.  With 10 minutes left we all moved to another room and whilst doing so two guests saw a shadow of someone move across opposite.  They both went to check but no-one there.  We did all go into another room for just a short while, but with no movement on the Ouija stopped for break.

Group A – With the last controlled session we started with the rods & pendulums, and had lots of movement.  We then tried the writing planchette in the cell, and almost immediately it started moving.  We asked spirit to give their initials, and although not too clear we think it was either an S or P for their first name, and a Z for their second.  Then we asked spirit to copy the shape a guest had a drawn on paper (she was not on the planchette and didn’t show anyone).  A triangle was drawn by the planchette, a star was what we had asked for – quite close.  We asked spirit to copy again, this time a Z, but the planchette drew a circle with a square around it.  One guest who had a digital recorder hanging around his neck felt it being pulled.  We then spent the last few minutes back in the main room quietly, asking spirit to affect us, make a noise, etc.  One guest felt he was pushed a couple of times.
In the free session I joined a group of guests in the map room on the ouija table, although there was only small movements with the glass, we were hearing and feeling lots of thuds underneath the table.  Gill (guest) was also feeling taps on her back.  We then did try some table tipping, and got lots of rocking followed by the table tipping up and spinning around.


Again a fab night at Landguard, and looking forward to going back!

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt – 12-4-2014 (Kym)

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

Red Lion Hotel ghost hunt 12th April 2014
Colchester, Essex

Area: Rooms 9 & 10
Equipment: KII’s, Ghost Pro’s, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums, Glass Work

Group D – I started with explaining how to use the rods & pendulums and immediately we had lots of movement.  We then asked spirit to show movement for yes & no answers, and guests were then able to find out what spirits they had with them, one of them being a male.  Those people sitting on the bed felt the bed move, which has happened many times before in room 10.  They were also looking at the light showing through under the door from the hallway, and could see a shadow which appeared to be moving.  We were also hearing taps & creaks in a different places in the room.  We tried fingers on the glass to see if spirit wanted to communicate this way, and after a couple of short movements, the spirit did answer by moving the glass to yes to being a male, but then no more.  Then Ellen felt a touch on her face, looking to see if her friend’s hair had touched her, she was too far way but she had felt her hair being touched.  At the same time I saw a flash of white light on the bed behind them.  In this room there is a short corridor to room 9, and the guests took it in turns to stand here with both doors shut.  They had similar experiences; touches, with noises and creaks in that area, and what sounded like movement in room 9 – no-one was in there.  Also two guests had seen light coming from under the door, but then it disappeared and everything went very dark.  Annette (guest) who was sitting on the bed could feel herself being pushed back.

Group A – Started with rods & pendulums which moved immediately, guests then established their yes & no movements, and were able to ask spirit questions.  We tried the glass work – but only slight movement.  I then asked if anyone wanted to spend some time in the closed corridor, and the first two females after what seemed like less than a minute came rushing back out.  They had both seen a face in front up them – they described it as being a face lit up under moonlight.  The glass started moving around the table more, and answered yes to being male and a judge.  Asking if he had been the face in the corridor, he answered yes.  He then was unwilling to answer any more questions and just kept randomly moving the glass.  However when he wanted to answer a question he would take the glass to one person in particular, and would then reply to his questions.  We then realised our session had over-run by 10 mins and the glass returned to the centre of the table as if to say ‘goodbye’.

Group B – Again started with rods & pendulums, and one person in particular, Hannah, had lots of movement with her pendulum.  She was able to establish – sometimes with the pendulum answering yes or no, other times with thoughts in her head, the spirit was a boy age 7, called Percy.  He was the oldest of four, had a brother called Jack, and two sisters called Penny & Molly.  He lived in a house here before the hotel was built with his mother & father.  There was a garden with flowers, and he liked climbing trees, but had fallen out before.  His dad built houses, they had servants, and he didn’t like vegetables, but had birthday cake.  We asked for him to jump on the bed, but he said no, saying he had something wrong with his leg.  We asked how he passed, and he said he was poorly/sick, he had a bad head, and had died of a brain tumour.  During this session two guests stood in the corridor, and were very alarmed when they heard footsteps in room 9 and the door handle turn.  I suggested they go in that room, and whilst on the bed they saw the curtain move (no windows open and the radiator underneath was turned off) and they heard more noises around the room.

Group C – Starting with rods & pendulums we had lots of movement.  After establishing their yes & no’s, they asked if the spirit was Alice – yes.  Whilst talking to Alice two male guests went to stand in the corridor, but came out extremely shaken saying “have any of you been walking around in room 9”.  None of us had moved, and as it was now the free session I suggested they stay and experience the two rooms a little more.

A fab night as always at the Red Lion, until next time….

Toys Hill & Weardale Manor – 17-8-2012

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Toys Hill & Weardale Manor ghost hunt – 17th August 2012

We haven’t had a lot of luck with the weather at this venue in 2012. First time it was -10 degrees Celsius back in February, then in April it was just before a thunderstorm, June it was a thunderstorm so fourth time lucky and this was well worth waiting for.

We started in the remains of the manor, gave the guests lots of our kit to investigate with and let them roam around. Many guests reported seeing shadows and lights within the near distance trees. I generally stayed put and various groups of people reported different activity in all directions, but the one thing they all commented on was the fact that all felt watched.

A male energy by the name of Philip approached, he was a gardener when there was a house at this place, he tipped his hat to me and some of the guests felt his presence.

Steve (guest) felt a light touch on his back and the sound of a dog, panting during the phase when the spirit Philip was around.

Many guests also reported hearing voices, whispering and whistles in one particular place. Four guests (Andy, Wendy, Marie & Shelley) all heard these sounds as well as the sound of a children’s music box. I then went over to the part to have a look and was met by a Frenchman spirit called Alain. He was about 55 years old and dressed in a smart black suit which had a silver pocket watch attached. He gave me the impression he was from 1900s.

The guests that had some of our equipment all had high levels of activity displayed on the various meters.

From here we decided to move into the woods to hold a séance, as the last time this proved very successful but due to the heavy rain it was not as enjoyable as it could have been.

Once again after finding a suitable spot there were high levels of activity shown on our KII meters and on our ghost communicators.

Within a few minutes of us starting a séance a male energy aged in his early 30s approached us, his name was Roger and he was wearing a white shirt and grey trousers and it was impossible to associate him with a period of time, although he wasn’t wearing a tie or hat.

Roger was very capable of moving people in various ways and generally pushed and pulled most of the group, starting gently and then as his confidence grew the level of movement increased and some people, especially Phil and Lisa, were manoeuvred into some rather uncomfortable positions.

Cold spots were also reported by the guests, mainly behind me as the temperature was a steady 20 degrees Celsius most of the night, these cold spots were felt behind four or five people and it felt like stepping into a freezer.

During the séance Andy felt a stick hit his legs and since Carl (GHE Team member) was outside the circle and at the time on the opposite side of Andy went to investigate although Carl could not see a stick anywhere near Andy. After the séance finished Andy found the stick about 14 inches in front of him.

After the séance finished, which I concluded after most people apart from two had either felt arm movement or had been pushed by Roger, some of the guests wandered deeper into the woods as they thought they heard voices and noises whilst the séance was taking place. The rest of the guests made their way out of the woods.

However those that stayed listening in the woods were soon returning because they heard footfalls in the woods and since no torch light was seen, this scared them.

We made our way back to the site of the manor house and conducted an EVP, although when we played the recording back very few anomalies were heard, however once we analysed them we discovered there were quite a few responses, although not all could be interpreted.

The best ones can be heard at:-


Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and a very productive one with many paranormal occurrences taking place.

After we had enjoyed a cup of coffee back at the car park and just before we were about to leave, Carl (team member) saw a “shadow” behind me and exclaimed that it looked too real to be a spirit and so the four of us who were there turned on all our torches to try to see what this was. To our amazement there was a young male (real person, wearing a blue shirt, black top and trousers and had glasses with curly black hair) standing very close to the hedge on the way out of the car park and even when I blinded this person with my torch he failed to move, but just looked down to the ground. All of us decided that this was a very good time to leave as he was probably drunk. As we were driving out of the car park we noticed this same person lying down on the grass beside the road which was really strange.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt 17-3-2012 (team two)

Thursday, March 29th, 2012


1.  Group C
We first went to room 10 and after taking photos, lighting tealights and having a general look around, we held a séance.  I immediately felt spirit behind me by extreme cold and being pushed and pulled.  Two guests next to me felt the coldness too.  We started hearing many different noises in the corridor; footsteps and faint whistling.  I then saw a shadow in the doorway, then a guest saw a shadow in an alcove in the wall and the tealight in the alcove flickered greatly at the same time.  Other guests were feeling ‘cobweb touches’ on their faces.  We then stood in the corridor with the laser grid on asking for spirit to come near.  We threw two led balls down the corridor and one seemed to rest against the wall then roll away from the wall and slightly back towards us.

2. Group A
We went to two upstairs rooms in the fort, but after nothing seemed to be happening we moved down to the corridor.  We set up the laser grid pointing down the corridor and two of the guests saw one of the red lights turn off then on.  We split up into two smaller groups along the corridor and asked out for spirit to make themselves known.  After not much being heard we walked down towards a smaller room, and just before entering a whistle was heard.  We stayed in this room for a short while before leaving.  I then took two members of the group to room 10 for a short while whilst the remaining guests visited the graffiti area.

3. Group B
I took this group to room 10 and after a short while started with a séance circle.  Guests were seeing different lights through the doorway into the opposite room, and again different noises were being heard. Jo (guest) started feeling very unwell.  She was feeling sick, hot and dizzy.  We broke the circle as she felt she needed to be sick – which she did!  After checking that Jo was happy to continue we stepped into the corridor and set the laser grid up.  Again we threw the led balls down the corridor but nothing happened.  We then decided to rejoin the other groups and just before leaving, whilst asking the guests if there is anywhere they may like to return to before the end, the lights on the K2 meter lit up for the first time that night.  We asked spirit if we should stay by lighting up the K2 – nothing happed.  We asked spirit if we should go back to the first room the group had been to that night and the lights on the K2 went on.  We then proceeded back to the narrow dead-end tunnel for a short while, but only heard just a few faint noises and whistle.

I would just like to thank all the guests for a great night and a special thank you to Paul for his generous hospitality throughout the evening.
