After leaving our cars we walked down the road to the
Countless Stones (a.k.a. Little Kit’s Coty) during the séance there a female
energy made herself known to me, she stood about 5’5″ and was of slim
build and about 55 years old. She looked like a typical grandmother, she also
had the air of calmness about her, at this time two guests noted that they
could smell an ‘old fashioned’ perfume or a smell like talcum powder. Kayleigh
(guest) also said that she felt warm and cosy. The weather was windy and
slightly chilly with rain in the air, although it wasn’t raining. Lynn (seasoned
ghost hunter) said that the name Hetty seemed appropriate, however this was not
confirmed. Natalie (guest) who was standing to my right, felt a very warm
sensation through her arm, as did I. This was attributed to a male energy who
was standing behind me, he was in his early 20s and from 1870s, he proceeded to
move various people’s arms to my right, mainly Rochelle (guest) and Natalie.
There was also a 3rd energy present, another male
energy who stood at the entrance fence, he was in his mid fifties and well
built in stature, about 5’10” in height and was dressed as a typical
farmer, he seemed to be just watching what we were doing.
Louise (guest) who was standing to my left kept being pushed
forward by spirit, and in fact every time this happened Louise looked behind
her to see what it was!
A couple of guests also noted that when spirit were moving
their arms that they either felt a warm sensation or that they felt sick, after
I reassured them, they were fine. During the séance I asked whether any of the
energies could make a noise that we could all hear (bearing in mind we could
hear lots of traffic noise). At various times noises were heard by one or two
people, these ranged from either stones being thrown, or sticks being snapped
to quite a loud groan or huff that everyone heard. Most of the noises seemed to
come from behind me in the field between us and the road (which was quiet apart
from the odd car). When we moved closer to those railings the noise then seemed
to come from the entrance, which is where the groan came from in the first
place. I decided at this point that we would break the circle and see what we
could pick up using dowsing rods and EMF metres. There seemed to be a line of
energy which did not go through the centre of the Countless stones but right
alongside in a southerly direction. There were electricity pylons overhead but
this line was not parallel to them, in fact using the EMF we could not detect
anything from the overhead cables. After an EVP experiment we decided it was
too windy and headed towards Kit’s Coty.
Whilst walking up the path to Kit’s Coty, many people noted
that it felt like they were being watched or followed, about half way up I
decided to hold a séance because when I walked the path in the daylight I too
had those same feelings of being watched or followed. Not much happened during
this séance, mainly because most people looked scared or were very apprehensive,
nevertheless Rochelle’s torch, which was beside her feet suddenly switched
itself on, which made everyone jump. Whether this was spirit or not I have no
idea, but it was strange. Rochelle also tried to capture the séance on her
video camera, but after a very short time (less than 5 minutes) the battery was
Once we had made it to Kit’s Coty (which is quite a steep
path) we took in the views across the Kent countryside and then since it was
still windy I decided we would hold a séance on the footpath out of the wind.
This was a strange séance, because although I could sense the energy, it was if
they didn’t want to communicate, I said at the time that it seemed immature,
Kayleigh said that she felt as if she could bawl her eyes out. However the
energy did start to move various people’s arms and wobble them, much to their
amazement. Shadows were seen up and down the path by those people either with
their backs to the path or those looking in those directions. Lynn was standing
outside of the circle but after a few minutes she decided that she wanted to
join is as she did not feel safe on the outside. The energy responsible was a boy called
Timothy who seemed to be lost, he was about 6-8 years old and had blonde hair.
He said to me that he was looking for his mummy. I asked my guide to find his
mummy and bring her to him so that he could go to wherever he was meant to be.
After that happened it was quieter, so we broke the circle and walked up the
path onto Blue bell hill and walked down this hill back to the cars.
Everyone enjoyed the experience and once again proved to
them that ghost hunting doesn’t have to be scary. Several guests were taking
photos and the ghost voice result of the 1st EVP experiment is on
the Ghost Hunt Events website.
Pluckley Screaming Woods Ghost Hunt – 5th March 2011
After leaving the car park, I remembered the route (unlike the last time) to the familiar place that we have always encountered spiritual activity from previous investigations.
Once the group had rested after the long walk deep into the woods, we formed a séance circle and I asked spirit to join us, after a short while the atmosphere changed in background, for me this is a good sign as it usually means that spirit energy is present. Within moments Lynn (Sensitive) noted that she could smell Ale, no-one else could at this time. Lynn also commented that the name Mark seemed to be right. I asked the spirit to move any member of the group or move our arms. The energy Mark gave me a name of Buckmore or Buckman, whether this was his surname remains unknown. He stood about 5’9″ in height, jet back hair with a square face and very unshaven. He seemed to be in his late 20s or early 30s wearing a white granddad shirt, with no sleeves, a dark material, possibly green, trousers which had what looked to be leather patches on them and brown well-worn leather boots. This energy told me that he was returning from a local Inn and was curious of our presence. I noted that the smell seemed to be that of ethanol, whereas Marc & Jeff (guests) noted that they could smell a sweet smelling scent, someone noted that it reminded them of Parma Violet sweets. The male energy did manage to move mine and Julie’s (guest) hands briefly. During the séance I was aware of other energies however no one stepped forward. Both Marc and Jeff were drawn to looking further down the track, as it seemed to close in.
After we ended the séance circle I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) experiment, where each guest in turn asks a question, generally directed at the male energy called Mark who was still with us.
After a short smoking break we continued down the path, both Peter and Keely (guests) noted that it felt like we were being followed by the spirit energy. The walk of about 200 yards was strange because although it always looked as if we were heading towards a section of the woods that was more enclosed, it was in actual fact more open.
We stopped at a crossroads of the paths, the temperature seemed to drop considerably, it wasn’t a windy evening and there wasn’t any rain in the air, as most of the time the stars were visible.
Once again we formed a séance circle and the atmosphere from a spiritual nature changed many people noted that it seemed darker behind me, although I did not sense any energy behind me. There was however an energy that approached the group from behind Jeff. Marc suggested that I ask for this energy to make a noise that we could all hear, within moments we all heard a noise that resembled a stick or twig being snapped, and this sounded like the noise emanated from higher up. During the séance Marc, Jeff and myself all heard what sounded like footfalls or footsteps in the surrounding wood, from various directions but mainly from behind both Marc and Jeff. These noises did not sound like animals as it was only one set of footfalls. At various times we heard what sounded like someone blowing over a bottle, this also seemed to emanate from behind Jeff. The male energy that was with us stood approximately 6′ in height, in his late teens and had fair hair. He was dressed in a cheap material which I likened to hessian. He gave me his name as Simon and he proceeded to move the hands of mine and Lynn, then Lynn and Peter and Peter and Keely. Both Jeff and Marc did not get any movement but they both felt cold rushes of air between them. I also felt a sharp breeze on my face, although it still wasn’t windy. I noted that I one point I felt taller than normal, as it felt like I was several inches taller and looking down on the group. Jeff also noted that he felt a similar sensation. I also saw flitting lights at various time behind Jeff, I commented at the time that they looked like flies, but whether or not they were I have no idea. Towards the end of the séance I heard a noise which resembled rain drops on leaves, but the trees had no leaves and it wasn’t raining.
At one point we all heard a female scream from a long way away that lasted for several seconds. There was another group of people within the woods when we arrived but whether this was them remains unknown.
At the end of the séance I conducted another EVP experiment (the results of which have yet to be analysed – at the time of writing this report). Marc also conducted his own EVP recordings, and both he and I took digital still photographs.
We decided that it was now really cold and headed back to the car park.
Everyone enjoyed themselves and this was probably the most active investigation that I have encountered at Pluckley Woods.
