Rye Castle – 22nd August 2015 (Louise)

Rye Castle ghost hunt 22nd August 2015
Rye, East Sussex

Rye Castle is an interesting Venue, albeit small the activity and atmosphere is different on every occasion, which makes it one of my favourite places to visit.
Only having one group made the ghost hunt more interesting as the guests had all got to know each other before I started my table tipping and glass work session in the Women’s Tower. This meant that the guests were much more comfortable, willing and not afraid to encourage spirit to come forward

Women’s Tower
Table tipping and glass work
At the start of each session, I split the group of eight guests into four so everybody had a chance to participate in each activity. Some of the guests had already done table tipping so were eager to get started.

Group 1
The first group of guests on the table immediately started to encourage spirit and the table begun to move straight away. Movement was slow at first, but with a bit more encouragement the table started to spin and carry out random movements having us running around in circles.
One of the guests then asked spirit if they could possibly walk the table, and to our amazement the table started walking towards the door, up the steps and into the courtyard. All guest were shocked by the way spirit seemed to keep stopping the table as if to work out how to move the table in the right direction to negotiate the steps.

Group 2
With the second group, we had some light movement of the table, but it was quieter. I then asked spirit if they would like to communicate to us by using the glass instead of table tipping. We asked spirit to move the table to the right for a yes answer, and to the left for a no answer. Spirit agreed to speak through the glass work. Some of the guests didn’t want to participate in this activity, but were more than happy to watch.
Once again asking spirit to move the glass left or right for yes and no answers the glass moved immediately. We had a male spirit come through who told us he was a guard at the tower and looked after the ladies, and told us he very much enjoyed his job as he liked making the ladies laugh.

Very enjoyable sessions with some amazing table tipping, can’t wait for our next visit

Rye Castle ghost hunt – 22nd August 2015

Rye Castle ghost hunt 22nd August 2015
Rye, East Sussex

Each visit to Rye Castle has involved a different experience for us and our guests, tonight was no different.

Since there were few guests we didn’t split them up and therefore held three sessions, the first a tech and gadget session in the keep, followed by a table tilting and glass movement session and finally a séance session back in the keep.

The first session saw the guests get lots of communication on our various gadgets plus there we lots of unusual smells smelt by the guests at different times.

The table tilting session was most unusual since the table was moved from inside the Woman’s Tower out onto the gravel of the old exercise yard not once but twice!

The séance session we were joined by a spirit called Carmichael aged 52 and he stated he was a Jailer. The room seemed to be very busy with various spirit, but they were not interested in us and various people picked up on this strange phenomena. During the séance however many people were moved, including arm movement but also some people were pushed and swayed.

All in all this was a very interesting ghost hunt with activity which hasn’t been experienced before, namely the table tilting, which we hope to repeat on another ghost hunt at the Castle.

Explosion Museum – 24th July 2015 (Kym)

Friday, July 31st, 2015

Explosion Museum ghost hunt 24th July 2015
Gosport, Hampshire

Area: Officers Admin Building
Equipment: Pendulums and Dowsing Rods

Group B – This was a lovely old untouched building, with a tremendous amount of atmosphere to it, and I wanted the guests to enjoy exploring and feeling the energies around them.  With Louise’s assistance we showed the guests how to use the rods & pendulums, establishing their yes & no’s, and then communicating with spirit.  We had a male spirit with us initially who worked here in the 1900’s.  The spirit said there were more than 10 spirits in this building with us.  Everyone then went off to explore, myself I ventured to the opposite end of the corridor into a small room and immediately felt like I was being punched in the stomach, not a physical feeling could just sense this.  I felt there were two men in here that had fought.  Louise joined me and said what she had picked up here: A male spirit called Arthur, worked in the building, died in the 1950’s age 41, was married with two children.  His wife had died during childbirth in her 30’s, his children are still alive.  He worked with his brother who also died here, they didn’t get on and fought alot, and a possible fight here.  Whilst on her own later Louise asked spirit to give her a sign, and she had pins & needles suddenly in her left hand.  We stayed for a short while talking to the spirits, I asked for the spirits name I was talking to and was given the name Peter, Louise said she was also given this but when asked if that was the spirits name her pendulum said no, I asked if I was talking to Arthur’s brother called Peter, and my pendulum said yes.  Peter also confirmed there was a fight in this room with his brother.  He was here 1925-1950, and died aged 47.

We joined the guests downstairs, and one guest said he felt uncomfortable in the bathroom and wouldn’t enter that room.  We went with him, and could feel the energy when entering that room.  It felt like a static energy all around us.  I sensed someone had been strangled here, and could feel pressure on my throat.  Louise was also picking up on the same.  All three of us could feel the energy, but also quite bizarrely we all felt it suddenly go at the same time.

Group A – Again we started in the large end room upstairs with showing the guests how to use the rods & pendulums.  We asked spirit what this room was used for and it was the recreation room.  Louise had connected with a female spirit called Mary, she had worked here, and died here, age 49 in 1944.  She worked here in the war as a maid/housekeeper.  She had not married and had no children.  A guest (Kim) joined her, and Louise asked her to see what she could find out from the spirit, and Kim got exactly the same, including the name Mary.  I was with the remaining guests who were initially picking up on the two brothers from earlier, and were surprised by the amount of energies in the room, with rods & pendulums spinning erratically.  We all then went downstairs, and could hear noises, at first thinking they were from upstairs, then realising they were in a room next to them, followed the noise.  They sensed they were talking to a mischievous male spirit.  Louise took Kim (guest) to the bathroom that we felt the energy in earlier, and with no knowledge from myself of Louise, Kim could feel the energy, could sense someone had been strangled, and by using her rods had confirmation that someone was murdered here by strangulation.

Area: Grand Magazine
Equipment: Ouija, Table Tipping, Writing Planchette

Group B – I had now moved to the Grand Magazine and started with five guests and myself on the ouija, and Louise with two guests trying table tipping.  The table started moving very gently at first, and establishing their yes & no found out they were talking to two children.  Then the table started moving with a lot more energy, and was able to confirm this was now a male spirit.  On the ouija we didn’t have any movement on the glass, but did feel the table move.  We did try asking spirit to move the table, but with no movement we switched to the writing planchette.  Although we didn’t get any drawings, the planchette did move up and down, and the guests were able to communicate with the spirit this way.  I did join the others on the table tipping, and asked spirit to lift the table up so we could all feel how strong the spirit was by trying to push the table back down, which was incredibly hard.  Two male guests tried the ouija and had some glass movement with the letters P D Q then the glass went to goodbye.  The five guests then tried some table tipping together and had some movement, whilst I joined the two ladies on the ouija.  We had a male spirit called Mark, from 1824 and was married with 4 children.  He didn’t work here, but did live here.

Group A – This group of guests had a lot of experience talking to spirit so didn’t really need our assistance, so initially Louise & I asked spirit to move a chair whilst we rested our hands on it.  And to our surprise the chair started rocking quite fast, and did twist slightly.  I then joined the guests as they had stopped the table tipping and were asking spirit to move the glass on the table for yes & no answers.  They were talking to a 13 year old boy, who worked on HMS Victory as a powder monkey.  He knew Nelson and was involved in battlement on the ship, and had died in combat on the ship, although it did not sink.  He was at the battle of Trafalgar.  He gave the year initially as 1850.  They were fighting the Spanish.  They were also able to establish the spirit’s name was William Henry.  We then switched to the ouija table and the spirit stayed with them.  Asking spirit to spell his name, he gave us William Henry.  Asking for his family name he spelt FUGR twice.  Asking if he meant Fergus – confirmed yes.  He also confirmed he was 13 years old, but the year was 1803.  He had 4 brothers and 1 sister.  He was the middle child.  His mother died in childbirth.  His father and other children fought too.  William died in an accident, a canon had backfired.

Some guests wanted to return to the Admin Building with the Ouija and when they came back said they had spoken to the female spirit Louise & Kim had spoken to earlier, and she confirmed her name was Mary Smith.  Also they took the Ouija in to the bathroom and spoke to the sprit(s) there and confirmed that a man was strangled there because he was gay.

Wow – what an amazing place – still didn’t explore everywhere so definitely looking forward to coming back!

Fort Borstal with Roy Roberts – 20th June 2015 (Kym)

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

Fort Borstal ghost hunt with Roy Roberts 20th June 2015
Area: Counterscarp Gallery
Equipment: Ouija & Table Tipping

Before the guests arrived I took Trudi & Roy for a walk around the fort, showing them the different areas as they had not been here before.  We entered the Caponier first, and immediately they were picking up on children in this area, describing the term ‘powder monkey’s’.  Roy was also feeling there was more to this area underneath, vehicles being buried, and the owner confirmed this room was above the moat which in fact had old vehicles in it.  We then went to the Counterscarp Gallery and neither Roy or Trudi felt comfortable going down the stairs, not because of their steepness, but sensing the spirits down there didn’t want them near.  On entering the opposite Counterscarp, before we had even reached the top of the stairs I saw a sheep there.  Advising Trudi & Roy behind me to “step back there is a sheep”, they immediately thought I meant a ‘ghost sheep’.  Once they realised the sheep was alive and running towards them, they immediately moved back, but the laughter of that moment continued for the rest of the night!

With Trudi deciding she wanted to work in the first counterscarp, intrigued by the unwelcome spirits in that area, we took our first group down there.  Initially Sean (camera) took the guests right, as I wanted Trudi to feel the left area first on her own.  What was odd as we stood there, Trudi holding her torch switched on with the red light, a shadow passed in front of her torch beam.  Knowing neither of us had moved at this points, and Trudi’s hand was holding the torch away from the light end, we couldn’t explain why this happened.  Feeling excited that spirit were in this area wanting to work with us, and sensing the opposite end was not too active we started with a séance circle to ask the spirits to come closer.
During the circle we were all feeling coldness behind us as it moved around the circle.  Val to my right and I could feel an extreme coldness between us, with my right side and her left side only feeling cold.  Trudi sensed one of the spirits was a colonel, with the name Stephen Stark.
We started with some guests on the Ouija table but with no movement tried the pendulums, and was communicating with a builder aged 30.  On the table tipping it started rocking then lifted up high on one side.  It then spun round once, and with it still lifted up one side, all the guests tried pushing the table back down and could feel a lot of resistance.  Some of the other guests tried table tipping, and even with just two guests it continued to rock significantly.  The guests enjoyed communicating with the spirits, establishing a yes & no movement so they could ask questions.  Trudi and guests could sense a spirit in the tunnel, they could also hear noises and a whistle.  We continued with all guests on both tables doing table tipping, asking the spirits with us to move both tables at the same time, which they did.  Whilst I was asking spirit to do this I heard one heavy footstep behind me in the tunnel.  Trudi walked towards the spirit in the tunnel but she could sense him walking further away.  When we left the area, Sean & Trudi were last, and they could both feel the spirit behind them, almost like he was escorting us off.

With the second group we started a séance circle and could feel coldness around us again.  I and some guests started with the table tipping, had some slight movement, but decided to move to the end room, and the table started moving a little more.  However just before the table started moving a lot the camera battery suddenly died with more than 40 minutes remaining.  Unfortunately Sean didn’t bring a spare battery with him.  We continued with the table tipping, guests trying to push the table back down and feeling the resistance whilst doing so.  Trudi had taken the remaining guests into the opposite area and was holding a séance circle with them.  The spirit that was with her was a young boy called Will Ballard aged 12.  He had a strap across his body and filled musket guns with powder.  He was happy and well liked, got on well with everyone, and was with his uncle and brother.  He died when he was 32 but was showing himself to Trudi when he was 12.  We think this was because this was the age he was at the fort.  Trudi was asking him what he ate, he didn’t know what a sandwich was, but eat brown bread and chicken.  We then joined the other guests so everyone could try the table tipping.

With the last group, during the séance circle some of the guests had some movement ie. arms being moved up/down/forward & back.  Trudi could sense the spirit of a male called Grant, and then she could sense another male spirit in the corridor.  With the spirits wanting to work with us we started the ouija & table tipping.

With Trudi & guests on the ouija we had a man called George, possibly involved in hanging someone, he dealt with buried bodies, and had buried another man.  He may have a link to royalty, but although the glass was moving a lot, the spirit wouldn’t confirm the king or queen at the time.  Jenny (guest) was feeling sick, and had a taste of blood in her mouth, so I took her back to the base room.  I returned to the table tipping and had a lot of movement.  We asked spirit to show us a movement for yes & no, and were able to establish the following information:  the spirit was male, age 50, name was Edward but liked to be called Eddie.  He lived in a cottage in the woods nearby, with a stream.  He fished in the stream, and sold the fish.  He had a wife and three children, but had lost a child.  They grew vegetables to eat.  The spirit was standing behind Tim (guest) saying he reminded him of one of his sons.  The table started moving a lot, the other guests joined us but shortly after the spirit left us.

For the final session of the night, all the guests and team joined Roy in the Caponier for a Trance Session.  Whilst I didn’t fully go into a trance, it was quite odd feeling myself swaying a lot when Roy asked us to, but with my feet feeling rooted to the ground.  I did notice my colleague Sue opposite me looking like she was going to fall over, so went to her.  When she came round she said she had an elderly lady with her who had a crippled left hand.
An interesting night, very different from our normal events as we had joined with Roy Roberts and his team, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Explosion Museum – 9th May 2015 (Kerry)

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Explosion Museum ghost hunt 9th May 2015
Gosport, Hampshire

Ouija / Table tilting

Session 1 – Group A

We started our session with some table tilting. Initially it took a lot of effort to get any movement on the table, then there was a gentle rocking motion for some time until eventually the table tipped up on one side and held this position. I kept encouraging spirit to move the table again or in another way, but the table just stayed in this position. After a while, the table suddenly did a half spin and stopped. When we asked spirit to do this again, it did so this time with a full spin.
We heard a tap on the window, and asked spirit if it was them who made this sound and to do it again, but unfortunately it didn’t happen again.
During the Ouija session we had a spirit join us by the name of Amanda. She was 47 years old and died in 1928. She told us she wasn’t connected to the building in any way, and there were 5 spirits in the room with us, although she didn’t know any of them. She went on to tell us that she had a husband called Kevin but they had no children. Both her and her husband died from TB, he caught it from her and he was the first to die. We then sensed Amanda had left us and there was a new spirit moving the glass. We established that it was another female and when asked if there was someone round the table they wish to talk to, the glass moved to Louise (team), who was standing to my left. We asked spirit to spell their name and the glass spelt Winnifred. Louise sensed this lady to be her Nan and decided to leave the table at this point. Someone else asked the spirit’s age and the glass went to 7, then 1. When asked to confirm if she was 71 years old, the glass moved to yes. Just before our session was due to finish, another female spirit came through by the name of Ethel who died in the area in the 1940’s.

Session 2 – Group B

We had some very good table movement in this session, with the table rocking slowly to start with and gradually building up until it was rocking very rapidly from side to side. It seemed the more noise the group of guests made, the stronger the table would move. The table continued to rock in this way, and after a lot of encouragement it started spinning around, to the amazement of the guests.
We had three spirits come through during the Ouija session. A lady by the name of Nancy who was 41 years old, and died in a fire in 1618. Then a male spirit called Pez who fought in the Second World War. He said he was born in 1928 and had two children. Also a man came through who was connected to one of the guests, and we soon found out it was her dad. The guests kept asking questions and all the responses seemed to be relevant in some way to this lady and her family. I asked her to take her finger off the glass and ask a question no one else would know the answer to. So she did and asked for the initial of her mum’s middle name, to which the glass moved to the correct letter on the table. No one else touching the glass at the time would have known the answer to this.
During this Ouija session we all kept hearing what sounded like footsteps on the stairs. It only seemed to happen when we were all making noise. I asked the guests to be quiet for a few minutes while I called out to see if spirit would make the noise again, but unfortunately we didn’t hear it again. One of the guests also said she felt a sharp tug on her handbag which was around her shoulder.

Fort Borstal ghost hunt – 2nd May 2015

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 2nd May 2015
Rochester, Kent

This event was a little unusual since there were less guests than we are used to. So each team member held a session in different parts of the fort doing different activities so the guests had a normal ghost hunt.

The first session was a table tilting and Ouija board session in the Caponier where there was a male spirit called Cecil who was severely burned along his right side that affected his face, arm and leg. Cecil was responsible for the table being twisted and “walked” around part of the Caponier.

There was also a female spirit present; Annabelle who was a cook from the Second World War era she was trying to communicate via the Ouija board.

The second session was my séance session held in the Counterscarp Galleries. We were joined by a spirit who I have encountered before, his name is Bernard although he prefers the nickname Biffa. Guests were pushed, swayed and had their arms moved but only when I was near to them, not just the people either side of me but the people next to them, so I had to move around the circle for everyone to feel these movements.

There were different spirits watching (although not interacting) us than on previous visits, although these spirit may join us again or it may have been a one off.

Towards the end of the session some guests were shaking because they were cold whilst other guests were extremely warm and some guests felt cold on one side and heat on the other side of their bodies with several people having one cold hand and one warm hand. There didn’t seem to be a logical reason for this as it wasn’t a cold night and the Counterscarp galleries are sealed from the outside air.

The guests then went to participate in a tech and gadget session in the old Cartridge Stores.

After the controlled sessions the guests participated in their own style ghost hunt as we allowed them to visit any part of the fort that they had used in our controlled sessions to hold their own ghost hunt or to hold their own vigil. During this time we let the guests use our equipment.

Whilst this was not a usual ghost hunt, many guests had an excellent ghost hunt and had a paranormal encounter that they could not explain or something that they hadn’t experienced before.

Rye Castle – 25th April 2015 (Kym)

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Rye Castle (Ypres Tower) ghost hunt 25th April 2015
Rye, East Sussex

Area: Women’s Tower/Prison
Equipment: Writing Planchette, Glass Work, Table Tipping, Dowsing Rods, Pendulums

Group B – We started with table tipping, and could feel the table trying to move.  Some guests were feeling a tingly sensation under their hands whilst touching the table.  Two guests felt they were being touched on their shoulder at the same time.  But with only slight movement we switched to glasswork.  Ted (curator) was sensing a familiar female spirit nearby, and he was being pushed/pulled throughout, but with no movement on the glass we tried the writing planchette.  Again had no movement on the planchette but could feel the table gently moving again.  Whilst asking for the table to move, Ted & I could sense it was a child trying to move it.  As not much more movement we tried the pendulums & dowsing rods.  Everyone was able to ask spirit some questions, and yes it was a small boy aged around six.  He knew the female spirit, was a mother figure but not his mother.  Ted had the names Emma & John given to him.

Group A – We started with table tipping and the table started rocking immediately.  Asking spirit to move the table to show a yes & no, we established the spirit was a male jailor.  He was the nicer jailor, who didn’t like the other jailor.  The table would move however we asked, lifting a particular way, spinning, and walking towards the door when asked.  We asked spirit to lift/move the table to show us where is was standing, and it lifted towards the corner of the room next to us.  Asking spirit if he would like to communicate with us using the glass or writing planchette he chose the glass.  Again the glass started moving straight away, in very fast circles around the table.  We asked spirit to take the glass towards where he was, the glass now moved towards the door.  Ted commented he often stands in those two places when here.  The jailor answered a few more questions:  he worked in the main building in 1840, the women’s tower was built when he was here, and he was scared of the other jailor who was his boss and not nice to the women.  He was aged 34 and died of natural causes, and was buried in Rye church graveyard.  He was married with no children.  We asked spirit to draw using the glass, his first initial.  He drew what looked like a M or W.  Moving the glass to yes he confirmed it was the letter M.  We asked spirit to try and tell us his name and one guest had the name Matthew, the spirit confirmed this was his name.  We then tried the writing planchette and the pen/planchette started moving in lots of random circles.  We asked again for spirit to draw his initials, which looked like M – O or D – S.  Louise (guest) was feeling unwell during this and had to sit down, and didn’t start feeling better until she left the area.  We did try table tipping again, and again had lots of tipping and spinning.  We also tried pushing the table back down when it was lifted up, and with all taking it in turns was amazed by the strength we had to use to push the table back down on to the floor.  When Ted tried he was unable to push the table back down.  This amazed us all, and we could not believe the power/force behind it.

I love Rye Castle – a fantastic venue, with something different happening every time we go!

Colchester Town Hall – 17th April 2015 (Kerry)

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Colchester Town Hall ghost hunt 17th April 2015
Colchester, Essex

The Mayor’s Parlour
Ouija/Table tilting

Session 1 – Group B

The group were split so that half were on the Ouija and half doing table tilting.
With the first group, the glass took a very long time to move, but eventually it moved to the letters T and R. When asked if this was spirit’s initials, the glass then moved to Yes. Then the glass moved to numbers 2 and 3, and the glass confirmed that spirit’s age was 23 by once again moving to Yes. The group continued asking more questions to try and gain more information, but unfortunately there was no more movement on the glass after this.
The group on the other table had just slight rocking initially, then the table tilted up on one side. However, despite our best efforts to encourage spirit to move the table more or to spin it, unfortunately there wasn’t much more movement apart from gentle rocking and the occasional tilt.
We then swapped over and once again on the Ouija the glass didn’t move, but guests kept feeling coldness and touches on their arms. I also felt like I was touched on my left hand. One guest said they felt hands on their shoulders and another felt a push on their back.
When the other group tried the table tilting, they had movement straight away, with rocking and spinning, and at one point the table was spinning so fast that one of the guests fell onto the floor! He got back up to carry on and the table continued to spin and twist. When I asked spirit to walk the table across the room, it proceeded to do so, stopped halfway, and there was no more movement after that. During this session I felt a touch on my right cheek and also on my left leg below the knee.
On leaving the room a few of the guests explained feeling a static sensation all over which lasted for some time.

Session 2 – Group C

The guests said they would prefer to do glass work rather than Ouija, so we went and sat at another table in the room with just the glass on it, and tried to get spirit to come forward and move the glass. Unfortunately after trying for some time, the glass didn’t move so I suggested trying the writing planchette. Once again, despite our best efforts, there was still no movement. The guests then decided to try the Ouija, and after a while the glass started to move. We connected with a 12-year-old girl, and when we asked for a name the glass moved to the letters A,S, and K. We kept asking questions to try and get some more information, but the glass stopped moving, and it seemed the spirit had gone.
There was some very good table tilting experienced by everyone during this session. There was very gentle movement to start with, and it gradually picked up speed as the table continued to tilt and rock. It took a lot of encouragement to get the table to spin, as if spirit didn’t know how to do it. The table seemed to move fairly cautiously at first, with the movements gradually getting stronger, and eventually the table was spinning quite fast, to the amazement of the guests.

Session 3 – Group A

We tried table tilting first, and as soon as we placed our hands on it, the table started to move. Slowly at first, then it started rocking and spinning. It eventually started walking across the room. We decided to try and ask spirit some questions using the table, so we established our yes and no directions and discovered that we had a male spirit with us, who was in his seventies and used to be a Mayor.
The group then decided to try some glass work, and a male spirit came through who seemed to be connected to guest Steve Downs in some way. We asked spirit to draw his initial on the table with the glass and he drew a D. We soon found out his name was Daniel, in his thirties, had four children, and was Eastern European. He said he was connected to Steve on his grandfather’s side, but Steve couldn’t think where the connection could be, so would have to check on it with other members of his family.

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.

Marwell Hall – 11th April 2015 (Kerry)

Thursday, April 23rd, 2015

Marwell Hall ghost hunt 11th April 2015
Winchester, Hampshire

Equipment: Ouija board / Table tilting

Session 1 – Group B

My first group preferred to do glass work rather than Ouija. A spirit came through straight away, and after establishing our yes and no directions, found out we had a female spirit present. We asked her to move the glass the number of times for her age and this showed her to be 23 years old. She went on to tell us that she worked at the Hall as a lady-in-waiting, wasn’t married and had no children. We asked her to show us where she was standing by moving the glass in that direction, and she was standing behind the guest seated to my right.
After a while we moved to the other table to try some table tilting, and there was slight rocking initially but it was very difficult to get spirit to move the table much more than that. Although eventually the table did tilt up on two legs and held this position for a while. I kept encouraging spirit to try to spin the table and after a while the table did half a rotation, then stopped and there was no more movement after that.

Session 2 – Group C

A spirit came through on the Ouija by the name of Elizabeth who was 25 years old. She died in 1634 and said she had a daughter called Eleanor and they used to live in the building. Elizabeth also told us that she was burned in a fire, although this wasn’t how she died. This we were unable to establish. We then had another female spirit come through and start moving the glass. We were unable to get a name as she just kept moving the glass to random letters which didn’t make sense, although she told us she was 39 years old and died in 1950.
We experienced some very good table tilting in this session, with the table spinning and walking across the room. There were also taps heard on the table. At one point spirit walked the table right over to the door and started banging against it as if wanting to go out into the corridor. Louise saw the figure of a man standing by the other door.

Session 3 – Group A

The glass took a while to move but we started communicating with a 9-year-old girl by the name of Kirsty. She said she died in an accident involving a horse and carriage in 1864. We didn’t get any more information from her, and after a while a male spirit called Frederick came through. He was 27 years old and died in the 1750’s.
When it came to the table tilting, four people at a time went on the table as this was quite a large group. One group did not experience very much movement with the table, with just gentle rocking. The other group got lots of movement with the table spinning and walking around the room.
