Wychling woods ghost hunt – 13-7-2012

Wychling Woods ghost hunt – 13th July 2012

Wychling woods (Kent) is known for its weirdness, strange things happen here, every time we have been in the woods, odd and strange things have happened either to the guests one by one, or to the whole group en mass.

We may have been tempting fate to be here on Friday 13th, but that only counts if you are superstitious! We aren’t.

Our first session was in a familiar part of the woods, this area has in the past been very productive and many paranormal occurrences have taken place. This evening was no different. We started by just calling out for spirit to step forward, there was a high level of KII activity and plenty of communication from spirit via our communication device. Whilst this was going on one guest (who has been on various ghost hunts many times) jumped and exclaimed that he had just heard a footstep beside him, no-one else heard it. As we continued strange whistles were heard, sometimes in response to our whistles but many were not. Then out of the blue we all heard footsteps approaching from deeper in the woods, which given the nature of these woods (it is very thick with trees) it seemed very unlikely especially since we saw no torch light and the sound of these footsteps only lasted for about 30 seconds.

From this point on many of the guests were feeling frightened and on edge and the smallest amount of noise made them all jumpy. All of the guests huddled, whereas I moved freely around them, not feeling at all scared and without a torch (as I have very good night vision). All of the guests said that they all felt spooked and that they had the feeling that something was about to happen, many guests also reported that they felt watched and all reported at different times the feeling of their jackets or legs being touched.

We continued, and I started my SB7 (Spirit box) which is a device that scans radio waves at 100ms in reverse, so any voices we hear on this we can be sure that it is not being broadcast. Asking for the spirit energies present to use the device to say their name or any of the guests names. Within a few minutes we all heard two of the guests name spoken clearly via the device.

This did not help any of the guests feel more relaxed and whilst very little happened of a paranormal nature all the guests were now standing back to back as they were all feeling on edge and all commented that they felt a sense of dread. As I moved closer to them I too could feel a slight feeling of being watched although not of the same intensity.

After a few minutes all the guests exclaimed that this strange feeling just lifted and they all felt comfortable in the woods. What caused this feeling I could not tell.

Our second session was on the other side of the woods in an area which has previously been another area of much paranormal activity, although since my last visit I had some problems locating it as the path had overgrown with weeds, after much stomping about I finally found the right area.

Here we were met by a female energy called Elizabeth who was aged in her late 20s and she told me she was a Land Girl during the Second World War. Elizabeth also answered many questions via our communication devices although very little was audible on the SB7. KII activity however was very high. There was little photographic evidence from the night, apart from in this area where several light anomalies (spirit orbs) were photographed.

Light Anomaly in Wychling Woods

Once again an unusual ghost hunt, but one where even the guests who had thought they had experienced everything on a ghost hunt felt like it was their first time ghost hunting.

Pluckley Woods ghost hunt – 22-6-2012

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

Pluckley Ghost Hunt – 22nd June 2012

We were generally worried about this event as the weather earlier in the day (and previous days) was generally heavy rain, however on the night, no high winds, no rain and nice and calm, almost too calm.

After heading into the middle of the woods we let the guests loose with our equipment which consisted of KII meters and Ghost Pro Meters for them to communicate with the spirit energies we encountered. From the outset most of the meters exhibited strong activity and guests were able to communicate via yes, no questions the nature and intentions of the spirit energies. Many guests were a little alarmed when the lights lit up when they were holding the equipment, although fine when it was someone else holding it!

Many guests also took photographs, several of which contained spirit orbs but unfortunately nothing exceptional, like strange mists that we have encountered on previous visits.

The woods were generally quiet with few animal sounds, however strange lights were seen by the guests and our team in the distant trees and we ruled out people because where we saw the lights it would be impossible for people to walk without making a noise.

After moving further into the woods, many guests felt that the spirit energies that they had been communicating with were following them, I was aware that at least two male energies were following us and some of the guests heard footsteps behind them.

We conducting a laser grid experiment as we have had some positive results in these woods in the past however nothing much happened during that experiment although communication was still strong via the meters.

We held a séance on the spot where I (and others) have heard the female scream but very little happened apart from some gentle side to side movement. Two of the team ventured further into the woods to conduct their own EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment, as they were walking back to us a loud sound was heard by everyone, although we have no idea what that could have been because nothing moved, although it did sound similar to a tree falling over.

We then ventured into an area which has proved to be very active in the past and generally very good when recording EVPs and once again we conducted an EVP experiment. No obvious EVPs have been recorded from this experiment.

Many guests whilst in this part of the woods felt vulnerable and the general feeling is that we were being watched but there was the usual sounds of people approaching but no-one ever arrives, this is very common in these parts of the woods and local folklore reports that the road nearest to this point is Fright Corner, whether this has anything to do with the unexplained noises and feelings that are felt in this particular area, I have no idea.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 9-6-2012 (Two)

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Fort Horsted Ghost Hunt – 9th June 2012

Having mustered group A MW and Kym set up vigil in area 10, commencing in the right hand side room as you enter the area. A ouija table, hand bell, singing bowl and candles had been installed prior to the guests arrival, and trigger objects set out in area 21 (a wooden cross, two old type florins, equivalent to 10p nowadays, and a small packet of old type cigarettes and an old matchbox). The group joined hands and embarked upon a séance/vigil, with Kym and MW calling out, assisted by Carl who was also responsible for video camera work. Several guests noted a distinct change in temperature, getting colder, with a “breeze” apparent on several occasions during this initial phase. MW picked up on a “presence”, female, and indications of a nursing connection. No name was evident. MW also reported sensing something behind him over his left hand shoulder, supported in this “feeling” by Lisa, who also reported a “tickling sensation on her face” likened to something crawling over her skin. She felt it was her hair, and constantly sought to adjust her fringe etc only to note that it was not her hair causing the effect at all. Several other guests indicated strange sensations on their respective personage, with leg/feet tingling, two independent cases of “something touching their lower leg areas”, someone reported having been touched from behind and several instances of swaying to and fro were noted.

Whistling was emitted several times by team/staff members and on at least two occasions all agreed that they had clearly heard a response, copying the original whistle pattern. A long, pronounced sigh was reported by one guest, emanating from above and behind the group. Requests to have spirit affect the candles revealed no change at all. At one point a long, high pitched “noise” became evident, though shortly afterwards, a passing, distant vehicle or motorbike engine could be heard, which may have attributed to the original anomaly, this was inconclusive.

During filming, and in tandem with MW announcing his “feeling” a presence moving about the outer area of the circle, Carl identified separate orb activity over and above/around MW and Lisa, this was clearly seen and recorded for further analysis. With several more instances of “strange feelings” and possible “contact” the circle was abandoned and the group moved across passage way to the ouija board area. Almost instantly, guests remarked on the falling temperature, however, MW and two other guests reported feeling extremely hot and sweaty, despite the coolness of the surroundings. Making provision for protection and ensuring that only the goodness and light were requested to come forward, a session ensued with some remarkable results. Shortly after commencing, Carl appeared to be in “distress” and MW asked if he needed assistance. Having encountered a “metallic taste” in his mouth he felt nauseous and in need of some fresh air. MW took over the camera and Carl left the building.

The board/glass indicated a presence, spelling out the name “GUGZ” which MW asked was perhaps a nickname, to which a pronounced and positive “YES” was the answer. Further questioning revealed a WW1 association/connection in the fort and a possible link with conscientious objectors, indicating that the spirit may well have been a guard or similar? MW indicated another presence within the room, a male and noted a name, but refrained from speaking until further table information was revealed. Spelling out the first three letters of the name when requested “PAR” MW interjected and advised the group that he had ;picked up on the name “PARKY” which immediately received a resounding ”YES” from the board. Pursuing the questioning, it was revealed that this link emanated from WWII with no connection whatsoever to the previous contact.

A lengthy and “informative” debate/conversation ensued culminating in a request from Kym for spirit to inscribe specific shapes and figures in the middle of the table. This was successfully achieved on three separate occasions with spirit providing a pronounced triangle shape, circle and a figure of eight in the midst of the table, amazing our guests somewhat.

Carl returned at this juncture, feeling much better, and MW, almost immediately, reported a total camera failure. Further checks revealed a drained battery supply to the video recorder, which minutes previously, had indicated almost three (3) hours further taping capacity. No explanation can be given for this strange anomaly, and both MW and Carl commented on the fact that this had never happened before at this venue? Guests, not actively involved in the Ouija were invited to “explore” the surrounding lighting tunnels, especially after MW reported a strong, cold breeze, emanating from one of the apertures, housing the candles, clearly affecting the flame. It should be noted here that the weather outside was still, calm and quite “warm and humid”, considering the recent gale force winds encountered in the locale. Other guests confirmed their having felt this “breeze” and noted a distinct fall in temperature simultaneously. MW reported the presence of a male spirit possibly called Ted who was moving around the room, but did not appear to engage with the guests via the board. When asked, Parky did refer to other spirits being present but could not define the number as requested, via the board. Pro Ghost Meter activity throughout the vigil was constant and regular though with the activity evident on the board, guests were not engaging with the meter so much, feeling more inclined to question and “communicate! with spirit via the Ouija board. KII EMF Meter activity was zero! The MEL Meter registered background, ambient readings no higher that 0.2mG Board activity declined until suddenly, and after several changes in guest involvement and participation, a new “contact” engaged with the group, at first tentatively, and with mixed, legible/credible messaging. However, in depth, specific, questioning, from two guests, confident that the letters being indicated were revealing details of a person that had passed, who knew one of those guests, proved fruitful. Scott Warner, an eighteen year old male, who died very suddenly, revealed himself through the board. Guarded questions from the two guests involved eventually did reveal factual evidence of this engagement, particularly the fact that this spirit had attained British, Judo Championship status, in his short lifetime. Clearly, the two guest involved, expressed emotional surprise, and after further engagement with the spirit, surprise at the clarity and information of the encounter both factually and personally. It transpires that Mark (guest) was a relative of this unfortunate young man and appeared convinced that he had indeed encountered the lads spirit.

Several times guests noted distinct cold spots within the immediate séance area. Throughout our time in area 10, constant, background mumbling could be heard, almost totally not connected with fellow investigators in the far off area 34. Checks indicated that there were no other people in the immediate area. Strange and general noises were apparent sporadically and “knocks/taps” were distinguishable at certain stages of the vigil. An EVP was undertaken in area 10 the details and data recorded still awaiting full analysis, though during, on site playback, there does appear to be some evidence of response/engagement at various points in the tape. Closing down the Ouija activity the group wandered through the tunnel towards the smoking area where several guests were invited to “explore” the area 21 lighting tunnels. MW broke off with several guests to visit the upper room in area 21 where trigger objects had been placed earlier in the evening. Guests were surprised to note that the wooden cross and one of the coins had indeed moved very slightly. During an encounter in the lighting tunnel, Matt and Simon heard footsteps behind them, accompanied by MW, and felt as if they were being followed very closely. Both guests were unnerved by this experience and asked to leave the area. A similar result ensued with Tom and Ryan. Upstairs, a brief EVP was undertaken and the results remain to be fully analysed.

The first session ended shortly afterwards and a refreshment break ensued.

The session with Group B, accompanied by the same staff/team members, went far more “quietly”. Area 10, the right hand side room, séance/hand holding session revealed very little activity with one female guest reporting feeling as if she were “swaying”, and Kym with guest to right were also being pushed backwards. Ouija activity in the adjacent room was extremely slow and subdued. However, once the glass began to move, the guests were led around the table, in a clockwise, circular motion, the glass actually spinning beneath their fingers. Messaging was indecipherable in the main with some words being evident but little meaningful or intelligent outcome being achieved. As the circular motion of the glass led the guests around the table, vibration and “wobbling” was reported by the guests. This increased, and strangely enough, appeared to be more intense, when female guests only requested activity on the board.

It was then decided the guests tried table tipping and whilst this was happening Kym filmed two orbs in the doorway.  Kym & Carl then moved into the corridor and twice heard whistling.  Kym returned to film the table being moved and felt a coldness to her right, described as a freezer door being opened.  Guests on the table in front felt this too. The table began to “shudder” and “shake”, faintly at first but building up gradually to a pronounced rocking and even an attempt to move the table across the floor surface. To illustrate the table movement more obviously, MW rested the hand bell on the table and during filming by Kym, the bell actually was made to ring clearly with the movement of the table by spirit.

Guests were clearly excited and surprised at this anomaly, and constantly sought to double check that there was no mechanical movement or false indications creating the activity of the table. MW encountered a strong and sudden headache at this juncture, which passed within ten minutes. Leaving the area 10 rooms behind, the group transited the tunnel once again, leading out into the open air and the smoking area.

After a short refreshment break, the final vigil began with a brief to enable guests an almost free range opportunity to engage in activities throughout the Fort. Paul, the “owner” assisted by taking small groups of guests to view the WWII graffiti areas. MW assisted guests in brief visits to area 21 again, area 34, where an EVP ensued, the data still to be analysed. Finally, a combined group visited area 26 where a laser grid was set up and calling out ensued.

Another EVP ensued and data will need to be reviewed. A hand holding séance, filmed by Sean, was undertaken with various anomalous results most interesting being two distinct “knocks or taps” from an adjacent wall. Very little else was reported or encountered by guests during the closing stages of the evening. A final and brief visit to the upper room in area 21, to check and retrieve the trigger objects revealed further slight movement to the cigarette box and the coin. MW also convened a brief EVP exercise whilst retrieving the goods the details of which still need analysing. The event finished at 0200 with guests appearing happy, contented and sufficiently satisfied with the event in general.

The full video footage from this event will be available on http://www.ghosthuntevents.tv by the end of June 2012. Episodes will be priced at £1 each.

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 9-6-2012 (One)

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

Fort Horsted ghost hunt – 9th June 2012

It is always a fantastic experience for our guests and ourselves when we investigate Fort Horsted in Chatham, Kent. We have had some amazing experiences at the Fort and every time something new or different happens much to our delight. This time was no different.

After splitting the whole group into two smaller groups, both groups set off in opposite directions so that we knew that we could not hear each other and therefore any noises heard by either group was not our own doing. As the Fort is a horse shoe shape noise travels in the corridors very easily.

My first group set off to the furthest part of the Fort in an area which we have had some great experiences. All the guests had time to play with our equipment although there wasn’t a lot of KII activity. We did however have some very good activity on our communication device. I was aware of a male energy called Tomas (pronounced Thomas) although I could only see his face, he seemed to be of Mediterranean descent as he had olive skin, dark hair and dark eyes and rough shaven. He was about 30 years old and passed in the early 1980s. Although I do not know what his link with the Fort was. Tomas gave the majority of the people a push during the séance we held. Some guests also reported a sensation that they were being pushed downwards and felt a pressure on their shoulders. Tomas also moved the arms of myself, Donna, Steve and Kerry as we were all together and Stuart although felt no arm movement, did get pushed a lot.

Whilst the séance was taking place we all heard some very loud whispering and mumbling as well as the sound of footsteps approaching us. Paul (Business Development Manager) thought that the sound had to be a person and set off to investigate the sounds. He didn’t find anyone until he came across the other group, who were exactly where they were supposed to be. Therefore the noises we heard of people approaching are anomalous. I also set up a Geo phone (a device that visually shows noises) at the corner of a tunnel away from us but close enough so that if a noise was detected the lights on this device would light up so that we could see and hear the noise. This device lit up many times and some of the guests also reported seeing shadows and dark shapes move in the same corridor.

From here we moved into the very long and extremely dark tunnel which has proved to be eventful on previous occasions. This time though just about everyone felt an oppressive feeling that made them want to leave, but not on their own!

After short break I returned to this same area with the other group, once again there was little or no KII EMF activity but some good spirit communication from our electronic equipment. Many of the guests were very scared, not just because of the complete darkness but mainly because we heard very similar noises to our first session; mumblings, whispers and footsteps. A female energy called Alice made herself known to me. She was a Nurse in WWI, aged about 19 years old and was approximately 5’6” and had long brunette hair.

I suggested to some guests to put their hand out so that they could feel Alice, many reported pins and needles in their hands, although one guest actually felt a real touch which scared her witless. Other guests could also smell a fruity fragrance which they said did not smell like perfume. This has been reported before in this part of the Fort from our previous events. Many guests also felt cold spots and shivers which was not related to the weather as there was not a breeze within this part of the Fort. Taking the group into the long tunnel did not result in them feeling the same as the previous group. This time the atmosphere felt completely different.

After this session we allowed our guests to roam to some extent. They were able to go to any area of the Fort with us on a supervisory role. Many guests chose to go to the most interesting part of the Fort; the double casement.

I on the other hand took a small group of people to an area which a) has never been investigated before and b) it was an area that I wasn’t supposed to be in. Curiosity however led me here.

Since I have never been to this area before I did not know what to expect, although spirit joined us very quickly. A male energy whose name remains a mystery because he wouldn’t tell me approached us. He looked like a sailor not dissimilar to Captain Birdseye, however he was a carpenter who hand extremely large hands (he was generally quite a stocky built man) and smoked a pipe. When asking for this spirit to repeat a noise we were not disappointed, just about every noise we made we heard a response, although they were quiet responses we have recorded some of the whistles. We also heard footsteps from the staircase and other noises which sounded similar to stones being thrown.

We also heard several bangs and taps in response to our requests and a general mumbling sound, which due to where we were could not have been anyone else talking.

Whilst in this area I undertook several EVP recordings. The best is below and I commented at the time that I heard something, although not as clear as the recording.

Once again a very exciting and enjoyable ghost hunt and one which our guests thoroughly enjoyed although disappointed that we had to finish at 2.0am. The six hours according to most of the guests had just flown by.

Pluckley woods ghost hunt 18-5-2012

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Pluckley Woods ghost hunt – 18th May 2012

As the summer approaches ghost hunting outdoors increases in popularity and fortunately any light rain showers will not affect our ghost hunts very much because of the cover of the trees. Which was the case this time, although the amount of mud seemed to have no relation to the amount of rain we have had recently.

The first stop, which is my usual starting point for the evening many of the guests took photos, some had light anomalies but quite a few people photographed odd mists, it wasn’t a misty night nor a cold one, so these mists are anomalous.

There was also a lot of KII activity and quite a lot of communication via our electronic devices.

There were a group of four people (not part of our group) who were obviously conducting their own ghost hunt, however they passed us in a leisurely fashion and about 10 minutes later we could hear them rushing out of the woods, one of them commented that it was a silly thing to do and they were obviously scared as they commented briefly that they photographed something which shocked them.

The second area we stopped I held a séance a male energy by the name of John came forward, he was an architect and aged approximately 30 years old. He wore round framed spectacles and had short brown hair, quite a slim build and tall, approximately 6’. He wore light brown trousers and a long sleeved white shirt with pale blue stripes. He also wore braces.

John seemed to spend most of the time standing right behind Tony (guest), the two guests either side of Tony said that Tony was shaking a lot. Ryan (guest) announced that he was feeling very unwell and nauseous. I then decided to put Ryan in the centre of the circle to protect him as there was a very nasty energy called Michael who was standing near to Ryan. Michael seemed to be a very nasty energy who wanted to cause harm, he also told me that he liked to murder people to weed out the weak. Just as we were stopping the séance some of us heard a very loud and deep growl just behind where Tony was standing. This growl did not sound like a dog or a natural animal of the woods, but more like a wolf.

In this area there was lots of KII activity and communication via the electronic equipment

From here we moved on to a new favourite area of mine, one which unnerves me because it doesn’t feel right and every time I have taken a group here something interesting has happened either to the guests or me!

Whilst standing on the path, once again lots of KII activity and ghost communication and also many footfall sounds heard in the surrounding woodland.

Using the spirit box the guests called out for spirit to say their names, which spirit happily did as well as saying “Hello” and “Thank you”

At the end of this I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice experiment) and toward the end when I usually ask a question one of the guest yelped and said that they felt a poke in the back, however when the recording was played back there was a clear sound of a dog bark, which was not audible at the time.

The odd dog bark can be heard at http://youtu.be/0QC2qQ73y7g

Of the recordings from the EVP experiment there were a number of responses from spirit however there were only three clear spirit voices, these can be heard below

http://youtu.be/3TT-mb9rZwc
http://youtu.be/eIM6B7LwnXM
http://youtu.be/QLcFm0j4mXI

We left this area soon after as many of the guests were feeling vulnerable, sickly or just not themselves.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt with plenty of audible activity.

Bicknor Woods ghost hunt 4-5-2012

Bicknor Church & woods ghost hunt – 4th May 2012

This location never usually fails to amaze us, we were not disappointed this time, and in the past many EVPs (ghost voices) have been recorded, this time we had some excellent results.

As we started, there was high KII EMF activity at the rear of the church (in a field) and various guests reported a coldness. Whilst I was standing at a point closer to the road I noticed a male energy standing near to the church. He was about 21 years old and about 6’5” tall, a vicar and kept looking at his silver wristwatch, as if he was waiting for a congregation to arrive.

Whilst sitting in full view of the nearly full moon through the clouds many guests heard the sound of footsteps. There was also some excellent an persistent KII EMF activity seen. We can rule out that any electricity supplies were causing the KII activity because the church has no electricity supply.

Also there were energies who were communicating to the guests via our electronic equipment and I recorded many questions in the hope of recording EVPs (ghost voices). Some of these questions did get a positive response.

The best can be heard at http://youtu.be/XZtjzJUEm6Y

There were lots of temperature changes and one guest who said he felt hot, took his coat off (much to our amazement) and then asked for spirit to make him colder, which did happen very slowly.

From here we walked to the woods, which was thankfully out of the wind and light rain. Many strange noises were heard in the woods as well as approaching footfalls, although no one appeared. There were also periods of high KII activity and at one point many guests and I heard whispers and other vocal sounds. Once again no-one physical appeared.

During the laser grid experiment (we had two grids covering both directions of the path) I heard what I thought was a guest say “Pardon Me” when I turned to ask why, everyone swore that they did not hear a noise, let alone a voice, as it was extremely still in the woods. Nothing however was seen in the grid although some guests did see lights within the trees.

Further down the path I held the only séance of the evening and a male energy, who did not give me his name came forward, he was from 1670s and was in his early 20s, he told me that King Charles II was on the throne. He was a shipwright. This energy also answered some other questions via our proceeding EVP experiment. This energy proceeded to push and pull some guests, much to their surprise as the movement was very forceful. He also made many people sway (like on a boat) and there was some gentle arm movements. Toward the end of this séance Tony (guest) felt very light headed and when I asked for the energy to step close to someone to make them smile, Tony burst into an uncontrollable fit of laughter.

During the session lights were once again seen within the woods.

We finished the séance off with an EVP experiment (Electronic Voice Phenomena experiment). There was several possible spirit voices recorded however the best can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/k28SjTH7KS0

There were not many photos taken because as the evening progressed the rain came down heavier.

Once again a very enjoyable and active ghost hunt with plenty of activity for the guests and communication with spirit.

Rye Castle – 28-4-2012

Monday, May 14th, 2012

Rye Castle ghost hunt 28th April 2012

After our first ghost hunt at Rye Castle in September 2011, we were really looking forward to returning, since we had a lot of unexplainable and anomalous activity. This time we and the guests were not disappointed.

The weather certainly did not help the evenings proceedings, torrential rain battered Rye all night long. Since this was a small group I decided that because of the weather we would stay in one group throughout the evening.

The First session was held on the first floor of the tower, where there was a lot of KII EMF activity and through our electronic equipment, guests we able to ascertain that there were two energies present.

The first was a male energy, who was Dutch and from the 1880s. This energy was able to communicate with the guests through our equipment and answered many of their questions.

The second, who I could see, was another male energy called George Cooper. He was 23 years old when he passed and he told me that he frequently rode a motorcycle. He was dressed from the 1970s. He was about 5’10” in height and of a slim build. He had natural blonde hair and myself and a guest (Wendy) saw him pass between us, both of us saw his long blonde hair (shoulder length).

There was also another male energy present, an American Indian although I had no communication with him.

Towards the end of the session Wendy started to shake uncontrollably and quite violently, even when she sat down the shaking continued for some time. When we were leaving the room Wendy was literally stuck on the staircase, unable to move her legs. Wendy commented that it felt like the spirits were reluctant to let her go. I took two of us to get Wendy down to the ground floor. I suggested that Wendy leave the tower for a few minutes as this would dispel an further activity on Wendy from whatever spirit had caused this. When Wendy returned, nothing bad happened to her for the rest of the evening.

Our second session was held in the Women’s Tower (a smaller tower that once housed women and children prisoners). After about five minutes Marc had to leave as he said that he wasn’t feeling well and needed some air. Marc continued listening to us from the bottom of the tower. As Marc approached the door way to the court yard he reported seeing two orange lights outside the door. When he investigated this he could not work out how this was possible from any nearby property, as the walls surrounding the courtyard are at least 20 feet high and only about 10 feet from the entrance to the Women’s Tower. Considering that it was raining heavily a light source could have only been in the sky, but this too is extremely unlikely and thus this remains unexplained.

Both Carl and Ted (Volunteer Guide) commented that the wall that they had their backs to felt as if it was moving, which is rather unlikely, but both felt the same when standing in this area.

Once again there was some KII activity recorded and some communication via our equipment for the guests, although I have no details of this apart from the fact female and child energies were present. Carl who was standing in a corner said that he too wasn’t feeling well, although he told me afterwards that he just felt angry and wanted to hit me. Many of the guests then stood exactly where Carl had stood and some of the guests reported feeling the same, although when I stood in that spot I felt nothing. Many guests also reported that the room seemed to get darker in the corners.

During the period we were in this tower I was knocking on a metal filing cabinet for spirit to repeat or copy the knocks, many of which were heard in response. Marc however who was in the downstairs room heard the same noises, but he heard them as if they had been repeated on a wooden object. There wasn’t any wooden surfaces in this tower.

Many people heard strange noises outside in the courtyard, including Marc (who was closest). We also conducted a short session in the lower room of this tower, but other than noises and sounds heard from the courtyard nothing notable happened.

When guests proceeded into the courtyard many of them felt vulnerable and exposed, whilst others including me felt serene and pleasant energies. To me it seemed a very pleasant place to relax. Had it not been raining then we would have investigated this further.

Marc and Carl held a lone vigil in one of the cells, Ted who just opened the door for them and stood outside the cell did not feel well and was affected by this experience. Whilst Carl & Marc were here they heard audible sounds, although nothing was recorded on our equipment.

Our third session was split between the first floor of the main tower and the basement area, which had at one time been the town morgue. I was on the first floor with the majority of the guests, the rest were in the basement with Marc & Carl.

Those in the basement tried a scrying experiment with some startling results, all of those who participated didn’t like the results. There was also a strange humming sound heard in this area, Ted commented that he had never heard this sound before. Just before we left Ted and Marc re-checked this area and no sound or humming could be heard.

Also in the basement, those present could smell various scents, possibly formaldehyde, this periodically moved around the room got stronger in places and faded away. Audible tapping and knocking sounds were heard in the proximity of the ceiling of the basement, although the EVP experiment held here did not reveal anything.

I held a proper séance this time and a female energy called Janet Wansley came forward. She was in her early 20s and came across as being a housekeeper or someone who lived in this tower when it was a home. She had dark brown hair and piercing blue eyes, very similar to some Irish people. Many of the guests, especially Virginia noted Janet had a lovely warm energy and was very vibrant in her actions. Janet proceeded to physically touch guests and move our arms and push us forwards and backwards. At one point everyone was swaying from side to side.

I conducted various EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena experiments – a.k.a. ghost voice experiments) through the entire evening. Out of all the recordings six were definite ghost voices, the best three you can listen to at:-

Several photographs were taken but nothing strange or anomalous was reported by anyone.

Once again a very enjoyable and exciting investigation and one which we hope to return to later in the year as we would like to investigate the courtyard, hopefully next time it will not be raining.

Also in attendance with me were Marc & Carl who are experienced paranormal investigators.

Pluckley Screaming Woods – 27-4-2012 (Paranormal Investigator)

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 27th April 2012

Arriving at one of the recognised spots, deep within the woods, where paranormal activity and past investigations have occurred, we briefed the guests on the basic use of various pieces of equipment, associated with “ghost hunting”.

The night was probably the quietest and stillest ever encountered without a breath of wind and clear, starlit sky with the beginnings of the new moon cycle. All in all, these conditions present an excellent opportunity to procure EVP recordings and remain totally aware of the surrounding environment. All that could be heard from the outset were the calls of owls in the distance!

Embarking on the “investigation” trail, several members of the group, armed with KII EMF Meters, Pro Ghost Meters, and similar equipment, noted readings from the outset, ranging from a mere 0.2 milligauss )mG) on the MEL Meter to a constant red light reading, simultaneously, on three separate KII meters.

These readings were of particular importance as there is absolutely no possibility of any background Electro Magnetic Field influence arising from electrically generated apparatus or power lines etc, so far into the woods themselves.

The Ovilus PX unit, a piece of kit specifically designed in the USA for “digitally dowsing” the surrounding atmosphere and environment, containing a pre supplied, vocabulary of approximately three thousand words, was also being utilised by members of the group.

Enabling spirit or astral presences, to “communicate” via this digital vocabulary, using full words, or even phonetically, the unit offers a great opportunity to support and substantiate other evidence gathered from equipment being used in tandem.

An excellent example of this liaison, on this particular vigil, was highlighted when the Pro Ghost Meter identified a “contact” and subsequent questioning by the guests, seeking a simple yes/no response. Establishing the name of the contact as “Tom” and the possibility that this contact was a highwayman, originally from the Leeds/York area, the Ovilus produced words such as “horses”, “York”, “Tom” and more.

Strangely enough, on this occasion, a PSB-7 unit, scanning white noise frequencies a short distance away, also blurted out the name “Tom” simultaneously! Coincidence or not, the resulting information and responses proved convincing to our guests who continued to make intermittent contact with “Tom” throughout the course of the vigil in this spot.

Most surprising of all, whilst using the Ovilus PX, the surname of two of the guests was called out from the unit clearly astounding all present! There is no explanation for this anomalous happening.

Grouping together for an hand held vigil and séance, myself and Carl remained outside of the Circle and moved off, approximately three to four hundred yards in another direction.

Carrying out several EVP’s, calling out as we walked, the resulting data appears to hold little of interest. Simultaneously, photographs were taken with no apparent anomalous results.

During the séance, we all clearly heard cows mooing in the distance, a strange occurrence to record, as the possibility of hearing this, so far into the woods, with any surrounding fields far too far away, is extremely unlikely, in view of the stillness of the night, absolutely no wind whatsoever and total quietness.

The sound ceased as quickly as it had started and was not recorded further for the remainder of the vigil.

I broke away with a small group (mother, daughter Sydney, father, and their son, who remained in the background and did not appear to want to participate,) and engaged in a very short EVP. As the recording was replayed on the spot, clear, class A audible whispering, of a female voice, could be heard saying “Aah! It’s Cold” and then almost immediately afterwards, “men are in the village”. Subsequent downloading and analysis of this EVP has resulted in some heated debate of the content and has now been posted on the GHE website.

Whilst the guests were taken to other areas within the woods, and calling out, EVP and photography continued, there does not appear to be anything further of any major interest from my perspective resulting, though my colleagues and, perhaps the guests, may well have provided something in the interim?

Pluckley Screaming Woods – 27-4-2012 (Psychic Medium)

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 27th April 2012

It was touch and go whether this ghost hunt would take place due to the weather, as all week it rained very heavily throughout Kent, however on the night, the weather was absolutely perfect; no wind, no rain and very quiet.

After walking to my familiar starting point, we gave the majority of the guests some electronic equipment to use to investigate, as there were several spirits in the area.

One of these spirit energies, a male energy by the name of Tom, a soldier from the Second World War gave a group of guests’ lots of information via our ghost communication devices, a spirit box and spoke the customers surname via an Ovulus. Which the guests found very surprising, as did my team and I.

Other guests were also getting activity via our K2 EMF meters and our other ghost communicator.

Many guests took photos and photographed many orbs or light anomalies. As a group we heard many footfalls in the woods and at various time saw strange lights.

After moving from this area we held a séance and the male energy from the first location joined us, as did another male energy, who did not give me his name, but he was about 57 years old, quite tall at about 6’4” and was wearing a Royal Navy uniform and the insignia of a First Officer. Both these energies tried to move the guests but nothing was actually felt by any of the guests.

At this location various noises were heard, many of which sounded similar to someone approaching, but no-one ever arrived. Both Marc & Carl (team members) walked further down the path as they were keen to do some EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiments. As they were returning to walk back to the group (they stayed within a visible distance) we all heard a very loud crack deep inside the woods, considering there was no wind, we ruled out anything falling from a tree and since we saw no lights assumed no human was responsible. (I find it very hard to believe anyone could walk through the trees and plants of these woods without a torch).

Whilst in this location we conducted a group EVP with some of the guests and a response was clearly heard at the time. This sounded like a female voice saying “It’s cold” and then a few seconds later “Men in village”, however when this EVP was analysed the first part sounds like something different and currently our experts cannot agree on the actual words spoken by the female voice. As soon as we can establish what exactly is being spoken we will add this to our ghost voice page on the website.

From here we moved to a location that I do not often walk into, mainly because I find it a very uncomfortable area, the woods here do not seem very welcoming and the first time I came here I felt hands around my neck. However since this was a big group I felt that there was a certain amount of safety to proceed. This was definitely a good idea because the photo below was one of many that I took, however this photo was the only one with a mist formation. To us the mist formation has form and looks as if it is formed from the ground upwards. In the full sized photo there are many colours within the mist, namely blue, orange and reds. This is undoubtedly one of the best mist formations pictures that I have ever taken.

I conducted another EVP experiment in this area, which was recorded by all the team (three people) and two of us had spirit voices recorded, however one of the answers to the question posed, we cannot establish what the exact words spoken say. However there is a good response to a guest’s question, you can hear this at:-

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and some good quality photographs and EVPs recorded.

Apart from myself, Carl & Marc who are experienced Paranormal Investigators were in attendance. Marc has also written a report.

Red Lion Hotel – 14-4-2012 Part 3

Friday, April 27th, 2012

The Red Lion Hotel, Colchester. Essex – 14th April 2012

Ever since our first ghost hunt at the Red Lion Hotel back in January 2012, we as a team thoroughly look forward to visiting the Red Lion Hotel in Colchester and every time we go more activity and unexplainable episodes are experienced by us and our guests. So our expectations were high, but we were not disappointed.

My designated area for the evening was the cellar, the first group of people were all new to ghost hunting, however spirit energies came forward to provide them with some evidence. We were first joined by a male energy called James, he was about 28 years old and of a slim build and a round face, he gave me the impression that he was a religious man and connected with the church. He gave the year as 1930. James started to use his energy to move us, by gently moving the guest’s arms. Lucy (guest) felt a very odd sensation in her arm, like pins and needles and goose bumps. Kristein (guest) also saw lights and shadows at the other end of the cellar.

Carolanne (guest) said she felt child energies and had the desire to sign patriotic Vera Lynn songs from WWII. During this time I was being swayed left to right, which I didn’t notice until one of the guests mentioned it to me.

When I was calling out for spirit to copy a whistle, some of the guests heard whistles whilst I was talking and one guest heard a whistle in repeat of what I asked for. Audible sound played an important role during the ghost hunt and after a beer barrel was tapped, everyone heard footsteps within the cellar. At one point we all heard a strange groaning sound which I thought came from our remote cameras, other guests however thought it came from outside. On inspection of the footage recorded from this session the groaning sounds more like it actually came from the remote camera than outside.

There was also a female energy present, she was rather nervous and about 16 or 17 years old who had long ginger hair and wearing a very flowery summer dress.

When I asked spirit to make someone smile, Lucy started to laugh out loud, which is exactly what I asked for in my head, as I felt the energies would be able to make people laugh for no real reason.

A Second World War soldier was also present, his name was Matt but that is all the information he gave me.

After we broke the séance circle, myself and Lucy found it quite difficult to let go as it felt that both of us were “stuck” together with an invisible force.

During this session, many noises, footfalls and whistles were heard all within the cellar, the electronic equipment; K2 and Ion meters all registered high levels of activity.

 

The second group to the cellar felt completely different to me, the energies that were here in the first session had moved on and a male energy by the name of Alfred came forward, he was local man, aged in his late 60s, with greying hair, quite a stocky build who wore a flat cap and was what I would call a typical granddad type. He told me that he tendered an allotment which was straight down the high street. One of the guests (who lived locally) confirmed that this information is correct.

During the resulting séance, strange creaking sounds were heard by all, as if someone was walking on creaky floorboards, however there are no floorboards in this area. Many lights were seen by the guests as well as cold spots.

Alfred did attempt to touch and move some of the guests, however not all guests felt his energy. As I explained to the guests that Alfred would not have touched women (the group was all female) in his physical life and therefore he took those values with him into his spiritual life.

 

The third group to the cellar once gain had a completely different feeling and we were almost immediately joined by a First World War soldier, whose name was Captain Timothy West, standing about 5’11” wearing round spectacles and sporting a moustache. He was 22 or 23 years of age and carried a crop or stick and wore brown leather boots. Timothy happily started to move the arms of the guests, mainly backwards but would only push the male guests, forwards, backwards and from side to side. Many guests including myself had pains in our ankles which I attributed to Timothy as he was the only spirit energy present. Many of the guests felt cold spots however after about 30 minutes Timothy left us and the cellar felt completely flat. I then decided we would enter the cellar of the coffee shop since this area felt very active on my first visit to the Red Lion Hotel.

Once everyone was seated comfortably in the coffee shop cellar, we all heard a sound that resembled someone crushing a plastic bag. Whilst in this area guests and myself were asking out for spirit to copy rapping sounds and some responses were heard by everyone. Our K2 meters detected lots of activity and during an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena – a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment the K2 meter registered highly after every question that was asked, however at the time we heard nothing audible. However on analyses of the recordings many voices were heard, the best examples can be heard below.

Then we heard what sounded like someone rifling through a box of crisps, knocking the box over and running away. I sent Sean (cameraman) up to the coffee shop as I envisaged that someone had entered the coffee shop and was stealing the produce, I followed Sean and the both of us expected to see someone in the coffee shop, or at least the door open. However when we opened the door to the cellar, there was nothing out of place, nor any boxes knocked over, nor in fact any crisp packets within the establishment. One of my team members was outside at this time and on speaking to him he was stood outside for the last ten minutes and saw and heard nothing that could have been responsible for the sounds that we heard. In video footage for this instance the clarity of the sounds we heard is very audible and on watching this you can probably understand our reaction; that someone had broken into the shop.

http://youtu.be/OQte0vTZRTU

All of the guests felt the need to leave the cellar and follow us into the main coffee shop.

From this point on we then had a 30 minute window where we allowed the guests a free roam of the hotel, many of these guests re-visited areas in which they felt the most activity or participated in an activity that they enjoyed the most. Three guests and Sean re-visited the cellar to the coffee shop to see whether the spirit energies could re-create the sounds that we heard moment earlier, however after 20 minutes they returned as nothing was heard.

Once again a very successful ghost hunt at the Red Lion Hotel and an evening where all guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and experienced all manners of the spiritual activity that the Red Lion Hotel can offer. It is an exceptionally spiritually active hotel and we as a team are looking forward to our next visit in August 2012 and subsequent visits later in the year.

As a sub note, I usually do not sleep after a ghost hunt, as we have a lot of equipment to pack up after our ghost hunts, but this was the first time that I decided I would actually have some sleep (3.5 hours) and as I was lying in bed the bed seemed to jump or jolt, which I thought to be strange and just as I was about to fall asleep I heard a female energy whisper in my ear “Hello”, had I not been very tired I would have investigated this more, but I shall leave this until our return in August. My room was room 10, which is a known haunted room, allegedly the room of the resident ghost Alice Millar.
