The Star Hotel ghost hunt – 25-10-2013 (Jo)

The Star Hotel, Alfriston – 25th October 2013

Session 1: We began with a short séance circle to build some energy in the room, this was room 17. the K2 meters were laying on the bed and spirit was lighting these up on demand and in sequence, although only able to light to orange. We had 2 ghost pros in the room with us, one of which was behaving normally and responding to questions, the other was continuous rapid flashing. The battery was new that evening so this was unexplainable and continued to happen all night. When the ovilus was turned on we received many words including the name Jim and also Paranormal. When asked on the ghost pro if this was Spirits name, it confirmed that it was. We switched on the spirit box (SB7) and were immediately told to “get out” and “go away”. A few more words were spoken but not clear enough to understand.

Session 2: Again we were in Room 17, and began with a short circle. As before the K2 was very active on demand, but still only able to light to orange. we had 3 in use around the room, all responded at the same time. Whilst we were scattered around the room, we all saw a very large dark shadow in the doorway on the inside of the door, it remained for a few minutes and then disappeared. During this time, there was spikes of up to 1.8 on the Mel meter. When the SB7 (spirit box) was turned on we asked for Spirits name, to which we all heard Dawn in a female voice. I asked spirit for the name of someone in the room, to which she responded Jo. When we asked for a noise to be made in the room, we had the response of “trying” and “weak”.

We had no table movement and very slight glass movement.

Session 3: For this session I decided to go downstairs and investigate the “Library”. As usual a 5 minute circle was done to build energy, although I feel this may not have been necessary! The guests wanted to go straight into table tipping which immediately began to move very strongly and in whatever direction that was asked for. I came off of the table as soon as it was active, so that the guests could experience this for themselves. We continued with this for about 20 minutes and then moved to the Ouija board. The glass began to move almost straight away, and we received the name James, who claimed to be 89 years old and from the year 1689. James stayed with us for a while and told us that there were 7 spirits in the room, 2 of which meant to harm us. The next spirit to communicate was Tom, who said he was 64 and married with 5 children. He claimed to be form the year 1620. He also told us that there were 7 spirits in the room and 2 meant us harm. The third and final spirit to come forward was a man called Michael, who said he was a priest and was 54 years old. He told us he had a wife and was from the year 1884. he then said Goodbye, and this ended our session.

The Star Hotel ghost hunt – 25-10-2013 (Kym)

The Star Hotel, Alfriston – 25th October 2013

I was in the main room with the Ouija table, trying glass movement/Ouija/writing planchette and table tipping.  I started with my first group using the Ghost Pro & KII, however as they seemed to be lighting up very erratically we choose not to use them (later when chatting to other team members they all experienced the same).  With no immediate movement with the glass on Ouija table we did a séance circle to build the energies.  I started to feel a heavy weight on my right shoulder, I asked spirit to do this to others and immediately it left me and moved to a guest.  Others were swaying and one guest felt a cold breeze behind her (no windows open).  We then tried the writing planchette and to our surprise it started moving.  I went elsewhere in the room and drew a circle with a line through it, asked spirit to copy this with the guests and it did.  When asking spirit to copy another picture, it seemed to want to play and do his own thing.   We asked spirit to take the planchette to the edge of table to show where he was standing, and when it did guests could feel cold between them.  The planchette then started lifting on one corner, and when the guests looked the side that lifted up was where most of their fingers were.  Asked spirit to lift it higher which it did.  We then asked spirit to draw the number of how many human females were in the room – it drew 4 – correct.  Asked spirit to draw the number of human men in the room – it drew 3 – correct.  The planchette started moving in rapid circles, and when guests took it in turns to ask spirit to change direction, the planchette would stop and change direction every time.

With my second group we tried the writing planchette and had slight movement.  We tried table tipping and again very slight movement.  We then tried glass work and it started moving very gently, we felt possibly a female or young girl.  We tried asking her name and age but just got the letter A and 5, 6 or 7.  I had been thinking of the name Annabel, Julie (guest) had been thinking of the name Alice.  Then the energy seemed to change and the glass started moving faster around the table.  We received no definitive words but the spirit was willing to move in rapid circles and stop and change direction when anyone asked.

With my third group as we had no movement on the writing planchette and glass, we held a séance circle to build some energies again.  The guest to my left started swaying, then I did too and we seemed to be swaying at the same time in sync.  Then she started feeling a heavy weight on her right shoulder.  Her hand was being pulled to the floor.  This continued until her hand touched the floor, and however hard she tried, she was unable to pull her hand off the floor.  We asked spirit to move us back up, and after much asking we were standing upright again.  Then we started feeling the pull down again, we fought against this, which we found extremely difficult, and eventually spirit seemed to give up and move away.

At this point Steve and his group joined us as the free session had now started.  We all stayed in this room and tried the writing planchette again.  Steve could see the spirit of Jeremiah with us, wanting to draw for us.  The spirit was able to draw for us a balloon with string, and a triangle, which Steve had asked for.

The Star ghost hunt – 2-11-2012

The Star ghost hunt 2nd November 2012

Alfriston, East Sussex

The Star Inn has a history of smugglers and tyrants who used the Star as a safe haven because of the instant protection of the Sanctuary Post offered by the Church. We had confined ourselves to the upper floors and the “Feature Rooms” (the two oldest in the hotel) to start with until the Restaurant and Bar had all emptied.

In the first room, there was a male spirit by the name of David, who told me that he was a peasant and lived under a local bridge and passed away because of a horse running over him. Although he gave no year, possibly because he didn’t know the year, I got the impression that this was some time during the 1700s. There were periodic energy spikes shown on our KII EMF meters when he stood near people and David made Jamie feel cold and in his own words “odd”. There were also periods of communication via our electronic equipment and some guests saw shadows within the room.

Whilst a guest was asking questions to David I recorded them and the following EVPs were recorded

In the second room another male energy called Charles was present, he was aged in his mid-50s, very well dressed in a three piece black suit with a top hat and a cane and he also had a full beard. Charles was also a portly gentleman who gave the impression that he once owned the building.

As I asked Charles to touch people, some felt the sensation of being pushed (the pressure) but not that actual physical pushing. On our Spirit Box (a device that scans the FM radio frequency in reverse at 100ms) some names were heard.

Further audio recordings were taken but no ghost voices were found under analysis.

During a séance in the Heritage room there were some arm movement and one guest was gently pushed by a female spirit.

However when the rest of the guests (who were downstairs with another member of the team) joined us for another séance and different spirit energy joined us. His name was Timmy and he was 36 years old, he was able to life everyone’s arms and gentle push people. During the senace it became apparent that this particular energy was capable of so much more. So we then started to use a writing planchette. This is similar to a Ouija Board planchette, except that there is a pen or pencil used for drawing.

First Timmy drew a flower, similar to a sunflower.

I then asked Marc (GHE team) to draw a shape on a piece of paper & not let us see it, but show it to the guests watching. Then I asked Timmy to go and look at what had been drawn and repeat it using the writing planchette. Timmy got them all right.

The first shape was a figure of eight, then a Triangle, a square & circle combined which turned out be remarkably similar to the key shape that Marc drew (although not identical)

I then asked Marc to draw a number and asked Timmy to copy this. Timmy drew either a 6 or 9, which is exactly what Marc had drawn, because it depends which way you look at it.

Then someone on the table asked for Timmy to write his age, after he had finished we couldn’t really work it out, although it started with a 3 so using a strange Yes and No method, as Timmy didn’t seem to be able to write a Y, so we used a circle for Yes and N for No we deduced his age to be 36.

This sort of activity and incredible drawing ability is quite rare and one which certainly made the night for us.

This ghost hunt was surprising as we did not expect the level of activity that we encountered the writing planchette experiment was definitely the highlight of the evening. The meal that accompanied this ghost hunt was also enjoyed by all.

I was joined by Marc & Kym from the Ghost Hunt Events team
