Rye Castle (Ypres Tower & Women’s Tower) Ghost Hunt – 17th September 2011
When I first had a look around this venue in the day time, as I do with all the venues, I felt that there was something different about it, something that I couldn’t put my finger on, or even describe, but I knew it was going to be good and a good ghost hunt. Fortunately I wasn’t wrong, it was a brilliant venue with loads of atmosphere and some useful evidence recorded. Since we were limited in numbers, which as it turns out was definitely a good thing, the evidence we all saw, felt and heard was second to none.
The whole group was split into two smaller groups, I headed up to the top floor of the tower whilst the other headed over to the Women’s Tower (their report is separate)
Whilst Ted (our host and volunteer guide for the evening) was giving us a brief outline of the history of the tower and its usage over the years, I could distinctly smell gunpowder, which at the time I attributed to the Museum, it was only later that I told Ted and he confirmed that there was nothing in the Museum that should have smelt of gunpowder.
It didn’t take long from when we started a séance circle for a male energy to step forward, his name was Percival from 1730s he was about 20yrs old 5’7″ in height and was a prison warden or someone who guarded people. He wore a red jacket with a single set of buttons down the front and was wearing a navy blue cap with a gold trim adorned with a badge, not dissimilar to a modern French Gendarme (Policeman). He also wore a belt which had many keys attached and about 12 pieces of white cord like material hanging from his belt. (I have no idea what these are).
He instantly started to push and pull various people in the group and move various peoples arms, our EMF metres were on the outside of the circle and began flashing up to the maximum almost instantly. At one stage everyone heard what sounded like someone moving some heavy piece of furniture on the ground floor, but then Ted (who was sitting in the room) began to investigate and we then heard several more bangs and came to the conclusion that it was fireworks, however the first noise sounded more like it was in the building, but we cannot rule out the fireworks.
Whilst everyone was being rocked or pushed in the circle another energy stepped closer, just behind Graham, which came as no great surprise to him as he was already feeling something behind him. This energy was female, a rather shy girl about 17 years old, but touched Graham’s neck and back several times which made Graham quietly surprised and a bit jumpy, as she didn’t affect any other guest. During this time a spirit energy (I’m not sure who) touched my upper arm, as if they were trying to squeeze past me. Louise also had an energy who was touching her hair and head, Louise described it as if someone was running their fingers through her hair, like a head massage.
I became aware that behind Sean there was yet another male energy but he wasn’t a nice energy, not because of any malice, but he was just unhappy or grumpy and wanted anyone near him to feel the same. He was a very tall man about 6’7″ in height, roughly aged about 35 and wore a basic white shirt with blue strips. He didn’t really say much, just grunts and groans. He did however make the person who stood in front of him feel strange and would exert massive pressure onto them, as if he were pushing them down from the shoulders. He also had this strange coldness about him as the temperature at this end of the room felt much colder than anywhere else. Ted even came over and felt the difference in temperature from inside the circle to the temperature outside the circle and he confirmed there was definitely a real difference. We had begun to rotate the circle, so that everyone could stand in the cold spot and experience that energy, whilst we were doing this Louise exclaimed that she had just heard a women walk behind her, she knew it was a woman because of the sound of the clothing. But it wasn’t a physical person, as Ted (who was the only person not in the séance circle) was sitting on a bench on the other side of the room. This was another female energy, a lady of the night dressed in a maroon/purple dress, who just passed us by.
This room proved to be very useful and gave us many experiences.
After a short break, we swapped locations with the other team, the Women’s tower is a very small tower with an upstairs room and a downstairs room. We headed upstairs, almost instantly a female energy came forward she called herself Maam and she described herself as First Yeomantry, she took an instant dislike to Sean and proceeded to inflict some pain on him. Everyone else was being pushed and gently rocked. The atmosphere however changed almost instantly and I felt an ebergy standing behind me, he was a tall man, about 6’2″ called John Chevalier/Chevaux and he seemed to be the person who cleaned up human excrement. Although I could feel his energy all around me, I was generally feeling fine, I had a headache but nothing more. Then Sean said that my nose looked very different, much bigger and knobbly, Graham also noticed that my face seemed to change, it had become more rounded and fatter. I could obviously not see this, but nevertheless I could feel some odd sensations around my forehead, nose, cheek bones and chin. Most of the group could see that my features were changing and at one point many could not look at me because I was scaring them! Nevertheless I was still sounding like myself (I don’t often do trance, as it scares the guests) so I voluntarily stepped into the centre of the circle to get rid of this energy. He then moved behind Graham and started to do the same thing. I exited the circle and stood alone outside to lure him away from the guests and to give some protection to Graham, but in that short amount of time Graham was feeling dizzy, drained and as he described it, the feeling the day after a heavy drinking session. (Not quite with it as well!). When I re-joined the circle I almost jumped, as I saw in a physical way the back of the spirit energy John walk past me, past Debbie and through the wall behind Graham. This made me jump, because I wasn’t expecting to see this.
After this episode we were about to take a quick break but a child energy arrived and began to twirl Debbie, like a musical box, to and fro for a few minutes. I could not describe her, as I couldn’t see her properly, all I know is that she was about 8 or 9 years old and liked Debbie.
After our little break, we walked into the ground floor room of the Women’s Tower, Debbie who had stayed outside came rushing in, as she said she had heard someone walking on the gravel (no one could get into the yard as the gate was locked, the only people who could have entered the garden were the other group). Graham then decided he would investigate and he too after a few minutes came rushing back in as he had also heard the same noise. I then investigated but did not hear anything until I had turned my back and had just entered the ground floor room.
I started recording with my Audio recorder to see if those noises that we could all hear (from time to time) could be recorded, but alas none of the recordings have any sounds of footsteps or the sound of someone walking on gravel.
However during this period we tried various EVP (ghost voice) recordings and some tapping experiments. At the time we all heard the taps, but like the footsteps, nothing can be heard on the recordings. The EVP experiment on the other hand was very successful, out of the 20 or so recordings there are about 4 really good examples. Two of which are:-
One of the strangest phenomena’s of the night is the lack of photographs, usually in very active places we have untold amount of photographs, with orbs, mists and other anomalies, however this venue out of the five people taking photos only four of us have anything unexplained and the odd thing is that three of us only have one orb photo each.
A very enjoyable night for all that attended and a location that I would like to return to in 2012, as this venue is perfect for a small group.
We would like to thank Peter from the Rye Museum Association for allowing us to investigate Rye Castle (Ypres Tower) and Ted who watched the proceedings on the night.
Ghost Hunt Events
Kym, Lynn, Lee & Amy
Investigation 1 ~ We started with a séance circle upstairs in the Women’s Tower calling out to spirit to come forward. Immediately we had a young girl called Megan with her two year old brother Toby. She said they shouldn’t be there, did nothing wrong. We sensed Megan would sing and read to her brother. Then we heard a very loud bang next to us, which we felt came from someone banging the large storage box in the room. Nobody was capable of doing it, we were all holding hands, and nobody had moved. After we had all recovered we asked out who had made that noise, and sensed a ‘Lady of the Night’ present, her name was Rula. She wasn’t nice to look at, whiskers on her chin and a wart. When asked who’d want to pay for that, she replied with, someone had to. We continued to hear noises around the room, and a sigh. We then dropped hands, and Lynn took her necklace off to use as a pendulum. This was moved in different ways, vibrating and bending in the middle, very unusual. Shortly after this the EMF lights were lighting up, and a tap on the closed door was heard. We then left the room, and on leaving the downstairs room we heard a tap on the wood.
Investigation 2 ~ We started with a séance circle in the upstairs of the museum. We sensed a male energy, who came forward and started moving us, swaying us in different directions. He looked scruffy, dirty and not nice. Then Lynn got pushed to the ground, and being unable to get back up we broke the circle to recover. We then repositioned ourselves and asked the spirit to give his name, but all we got was you can call me ‘sir’. We sensed he was the big boss and would beat and rape the prisoners. We felt cold spots, and when checking the temperature after it was 17 degrees initially, rising back up to 21 degrees as we watched. During the séance Lee was standing very straight and said he felt very angry. Lynn was also feeling the same. Lights were also seen in the room.
Investigation 3 ~ We went to the walled garden hoping to hear footsteps on the gravel as the earlier group had, but unfortunately nothing.
We all had a fantastic night, and can’t wait to return.
The first event here, albeit a private event was a very scary night with lots of activity, we were hoping that this event would be similar. Although a little disappointing that it wasn’t quite so scary it was however very fruitful in terms of evidence captured by guests and team in the form of photos and EVP recordings.
The first session was held in the same place that we had the coin incident from the first investigation (Read the first report https://ghosthuntevents.wordpress.com/2011/07/13/hucking-estate-private-ghost-hunt-8-7-2011/). A male energy by the name of Tomas joined us, he was a woodman and he began by pushing Nicky, Tabitha and myself, making all us feel like we were on a boat. During this time many footfalls were heard in the surrounding woodland, as if someone were approaching but never arrived. Lights were seen by many guests and the EMF metres recorded a lot of spirit activity. One of the guests (Graham, had his jacket tugged). However only half the group were getting any sensations so we split up into two smaller groups.
After we allowed several minutes for the other group to walk away from us, we held another séance in the same area. Almost immediately we all heard various strange noises and strange lights again were seen, some of these were very bright & although we cannot rule out that it could have been from the other group, the direction of these lights seen were not where they were supposed to have been. A younger male energy joined us, about early 20s about 5’ in height and of a stocky build with short cropped black hair. He was wearing a white/cream granddad shirt and had leather patches on his trousers. Possibly he could have been a Farrier. This energy had no problem in moving many of us and once again Tabitha and myself seemed to be standing on very unstable ground as neither of us had any balance.
After leaving this area we decided to try to walk through the woods to where the other group were, however this proved (like last time) rather difficult as the woodland paths seem to be non-existant at night!
When finally we joined the other group on one of the main pathways of the wood (this is an area which was very active in the day time) a male energy who was called Marcus joined us, he was 37 years old and lived nearby. When asking what year he was from several EVPs were recorded, the best you can hear at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE7r3MzSKA0
From here we walked over to where the pond is supposed to be and once again another energy joined us, I however was at the back and left Kym and Graham asking the questions as they were getting responses on their EMF metres. I was concerned with two male energies, one of which was called Edward. What concerned me is that they had followed us from earlier, but would not approach us. This I thought to be weird, as I could easily sense and see them, yet the still would not approach. It was only after a long while, as the majority of the guests had walked on to another spot that the motive of these male energies became apparent.
They were not there for our benefit they were there because they were collecting another spirit energy, someone who near us who shouldn’t have been there, or who have broken a spiritual law. As we (three guests and myself) continued to walk down the path I had the distinct impression that these energies were to collect a spirit energy that had latched onto a guest of mine.
Again when we finally caught up with the rest of the group, after getting slightly lost and disorientated by the trees, the motive of these two energies was very apparent. They were definitely apprehending another spirit energy, whoever this energy was I have no idea, but my spiritual guide turned up for protection.
As we were walking out of the woods towards the car park, my guide informed me that these two male energies had completed their mission.
Once again a very unusual ghost hunt, the EVPs recorded are very clear and many of the photographs contain some very bright and distinctive orbs. All in all an enjoyable ghost hunt. A place we will return to in 2012.

FORT HORSTED – 3rd September 2011
We were all looking forward to the ghost hunt at the Fort, this was our second visit and were hoping on as good as our first visit.
The night was still and warm I took my first group Graeme, Mia, Sarah, Helen, Simon and another Helen into tunnel 10.
We lit some small candles in the room to the right of the mail tunnel as it was pitch black.
We started with séance, the group was very quiet so I started to ask them if they had had any other experiences as we were chatting a male energy called Stanley came in he was about 55-60 years old when he passed. He appeared to be quite tall, and skinny he was wearing a very smart suit and told me he was a clerk, he did not tell me how he had passed, I asked Stanley if he could give us some gentle pushes or pulls to let the guest know he was there, both Graeme and my right arm shot backwards, then forwards. I asked Stanley to go round the circle and do something to the other guests. Mia and one of the Helens reported that their arms were moving,
We decided to go into the main tunnel where we again did a séance I asked Simon to stand next to me as he had never had any evidence, I asked spirit to step forward and a little boy of about 6 or 7 came through, he started swinging our arms then lifted them Simon was very impressed with this, everyone heard footsteps and mumbling. A lady came through who was about 40 years old she was quite butch but would not give me any other information. We broke the circle and we all stood around taking photos and listening out there was still lots of strange noises, I went to use my camera and the batteries had completely drained one of the other guest said their camera had done the same. We made our way back to meet with the other group.
My second group went back to tunnel 10 with me were Carl, Jo, Mark, Bradley, Carrie and Lou.
We started off with a séance circle, again straight away we all heard strange noises no one could work out where they were coming from or what they were. Mark (seasoned Ghost hunter) said he was feeling a tall man around him, we had some arm movement, Carrie was unsure of this and asked spirit not to do it to her, everyone commented on cold blast of air around them, we broke the circle and went out in to the main tunnel everyone felt they did not want to do another séance circle, again lots of footsteps could be heard, but could not work out what direction they were coming from, we went into the room to our left. Carrie at this stage said she felt very sick and had pain in her tummy, I place my hands on her back ant tummy after a few minutes she said it had gone, we all stood around trying to work out where the sounds were coming from, Carl said he saw a face peer around the door, someone else said they saw it as well. Both Mark and myself felt that one of the energy’s around us had taken their own life in this room. We made our way out towards the door, instead of going out to our left we went further down the tunnel to our right, I felt very uncomfortable in this part so did some of the others, Jo said she could hear a noise which we all heard at first we could not work it out, Jo and Carl thought it was running water, Mark then said it sounded more of a roar of fire, we all confirmed that this was what it was, ( I later checked with Paul who said that tunnel 10 was badly affected by the fire, Mark threw a ball and asked spirit to return it to us he also set his EMF meter which went crazy the red light was really going (this is a sign that Spirit is around us), we tried asking question using the EMF with one flash for yes and 2 flashes for no, every time we asked a question spirit went away, we went back to the main tunnel and again set up the EMF which was again staying on red. Every time we asked the question are you happy spirit just went away. One of the spirits that came through using the EMF meter said he was a French prisoner of war we got the name Joel.
We finished up and made our way back to the main group.
I took my 3rd group back to tunnel 10 the group was made of Graham and Debbie (seasoned Ghost hunters), Carole, Julie, Ellen and Elisa.
We made our way into the room to the left of the main tunnel, it was very dark and the candles had nearly gone out I lit 4 candles 2 at far end of room and 2 opposite the door way,
We held séance circle and asked spirit to come through, again we heard lots of weird noises, footsteps and the strange mumbling, I asked spirit to blow the candles out,
As spirit was not responding to me I asked Graham to call out as the previous group they had responded well to Mark and Carl.
After a while of just feeling uncomfortable we made our way into the other room, again lots of strange noises, an energy came through called Simon He was lost and seemed quite upset I said we would help him to go over, the group were doing their own thing, and everyone noted different temperatures in the room, we went back into the left room and Debbie noted that the candles had moved instead of 2 in each alcove there was 1 in the end and 3 in the other, there was also wax dripped where it appeared to be moved unfortunately we did not have any evidence to prove the place of the candles were, we did take photos after.
Graham threw a penny and asked spirit to return it to him; again we heard mumbling, which appeared to be coming from all around us,
To sum up we had a fantastic evening with all groups getting some evidence, either being moved or by hearing things. Everyone got some form of orbs on their cameras.
Fort Horsted did not let us down.
Ghost Hunt Events
FORT HORSTED 3rd September 2011
Investigation 1 ~ Jo, Carl, Louise, Marc, Bradley & Carrie
We headed to an upstairs room on the right hand side of the fort, taking photos and using the EMF which lit up to show spirit present. Temperature was 15 degrees, later rising to 17 degrees, but returning to 15 degrees when we left. We then used the Ouija board to talk with spirit. We had a little response; Female, age 44, from 1700’s. She tried to spell her name but it wasn’t conclusive. We asked if she could make a noise, to which she replied yes, but we couldn’t hear anything. We then held a séance circle. Immediately we had a spirit present, Marc identified her as a girl, age 7/8, called Emily. She was very mischevious, having great fun moving several guests. And not just arm movement, Jo & Louise were moved around the room, twisting and turning several times. We then whistled and asked spirit to repeat, of which it did, several times. We assumed this came from the male energy on the stairs. Carl and Marc stepped out of the circle to listen out for the noises, Marc sensing the male energy frightened the little girl. At that point the girl left, and the male energy came in the room. As we looked over to Carl he was doubled over in pain. He had been punched in the stomach, but no-one was near him. We promptly put him in the circle to help him recover. We then left the room, and as we got to the bottom of the stairs, we heard what sounded like a large wooden door slam to our right. We went to investigate, but it was a dead end, and no door. We did ask spirit to repeat our knocks, of which we heard taps on the wall.
Investigation 2 ~ Graham, Debbie, Carol, Ellen, Julie & Elisa
We returned to the same room, and with the EMF showing spirit present we tried the Ouija board, but had no movement. We did a séance circle and immediately we were hearing noises, when asking spirit to respond when asked nothing, but when ignoring spirit, noises were heard. We proceeded down the stairs, and again heard what sounded like a door closing. On investigating more noises were heard. We then went into a room and twice we heard what sounded like a female moaning. We closed the wooden doors and asked spirit to knock/open them. Debbie & Graham who were standing next to the door heard a tap, when asking for spirit to repeat louder no response.
Investigation 3 ~ Mia, Graham, Sarah, Helen, Simon & Helen
We proceeded to the furthest part in the fort, and started with a séance circle. I felt a spirit present, and Mia & I were moved backward and forward several times. I then had the name Robert in my head, and asked spirit, if this was his name, could he move my arm. Mine & Mia’s arm promptly moved up. I then asked Robert to move around the circle and affect the other guests, but unfortunately no response.
As this group wanted to use the Ouija Board we tried this back in the Meeting Room – no response. We then tried in a different room (Lynn’s room) but again no response.
I would like to thank Paul and his team for a fantastic night and look forward to being invited back again.
Ghost Hunt Events
Fort Horsted ghost hunt 3rd September 2011
Fort Horsted is an amazing place, our first event there was a very active location and this time around we were not disappointed either. The group was split into equal sized groups and each group embarked on several very different areas. Each Medium or Paranormal Investigator has written a report.
My group headed for the double casements, this involved a very steep climb down some nasty staircases, nasty because it is very tiring.
After starting a séance circle various energies were present although none seemed to want to be identified, however we heard various footfalls, mumbling, tapping and voices. These noises could not have come from any of the other groups, as we were separated by quite a distance.
Various shadows were seen, whilst I was experimenting with my laser pen Graham thought that Debbie was behind him as he felt a brush against his jacket, but when he looked around no-one was behind him. During this laser pen experiment, which casts a grid of light, many people including me saw some shadows, all the while we were all still hearing footsteps, which sounded like they were approaching, but no-one arrived.
Each session the group of people experienced a different Medium and a different area, so for my 2nd session I headed for the furthest part of the fort, away from everyone. This time around we had some gentle arm movement and pushing, this was attributed to two male energies who enjoyed pushing Graeme and Mia, so much that they were bent over, virtually touching the floor. During this time once again we heard various mumbling sounds (like distant whispering). During the laser pen experiment, once again some interesting photos were taken by the guests, one of which had a very strange person shaped shadow caught within the light. It takes a reasonable amount of technical photographic knowledge to capture the laser light, as a flash will “knock out” the laser light, so the photo has to be taken over several seconds. I too have some odd photos which are still being analysed.
My 3rd session the guests wanted to go to the double casements, which meant heading for those lovely staircases! After everyone had recovered from the intense walking, once again I started by holding a séance, this time another group was in the same area. However more or less instantly Carl started laughing, without any reason whatsoever. (This happened previously in my group when we were in this area at the last investigation in June). Various hot and cold spots were felt by the guests, there were some gentle arm movements and some vigorous movements. One of the male energies that was affecting the guests was called Webb and he was a WWII soldier, quite a gentile character and it was his energy that the guests could feel as hot and cold spots. There was also a female energy present, she seemed very shy, however I have an EVP which she calls out he name (this EVP is still being analysed, however I can only hear Laura as her name, however the experts cannot agree at the moment). Various lights were seen by the guests, mostly behind me.
The 4th Session we allowed the guests to more-or-less go wherever they wanted for about 30mins to either hold their own mini ghost hunt, or to go somewhere with a Medium. Most of the guests at this time decided that they were tired, however I had a group of people who wanted to experience something, so we headed for one of the magazines. This proved a very active area as within seconds of us starting a séance circle we heard approaching footsteps, whispers and groans. There was a male energy present, he seemed to be dressed like a builder and gave me the impression he was from the 1960s. This energy proceeded to push the guests gently forwards and backwards. There was one candle lighting the room and I then asked for spirit to blow it out. As soon as I said that it flickered very vigorously (bearing in mind it hadn’t flickered at all until this point) this continued every time I asked for spirit to blow the candle out, however it was close to be extinguished once or twice, but it never actually went out. However during this time we were still hearing footsteps and at one moment we heard a loud metallic crash, this I thought was someone walking down the corridor, as there are metal gratings covering holes in the floor, however if someone was walking over these gratings the only place they could have ended up was where we were, and no-one arrived. Towards the end of the session we all started to see various lights and then we all thought we saw a bat or something flying in the room. This was too much for one of the girls and she put her torch on, but there was nothing to be found in the area of the room where moments earlier we all heard something flapping. A very strange experience.
Once again everyone enjoyed the Fort Horsted experience, many photographs, EVPs and video footage was recorded on the night and as soon as our evidence has been verified we will publish it on the website.
EVP recorded during ghost hunt http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LXM__GlBwZg
Ghost Hunt Events
Scott and Debbie walked and stood alongside the road and within a matter of minutes they were both virtually running back. Apparently they had heard something similar to footfalls along the adjacent lane. According to Scott it sounded like someone jogging. Needless to say there was no-one jogging and there are no houses near here.
As soon as everyone else started to walk away I too felt uneasy and had the unusual urge to look behind me, even though I knew that I would not see anything physical.
Scott and myself heard a noise similar to that of a plastic bottle being dropped on the road and then a few moments later Scott & Graham heard an unusual sound but they likened it to an angry swan.
Walking through the woods was an eerie experience, as these woods aren’t walked very often and the woods themselves seemed to watch us, it was a very strange experience, just walking everyone was on edge and apprehensive.
I stopped at a spot because my EMF metre was pulsating, never going any further than the orange light (which is halfway). Everyone stopped and took some photos, some had orbs, but most didn’t. Then I asked out for the spirit who was affecting the EMF metres (we had three) to make a noise, within a very short amount of time, we all heard a noise, it is hard to say what it sounded like. Then I asked again but for the spirit to make it louder and more or less instantly we all heard another noise and it was definitely louder. This process continued for several minutes of asking spirit to make louder and louder noises, until we heard something right beside us which made everyone jump!
As an experiment I shone the laser grid down the path, I wanted to see whether this could be used outdoors (as it is very successful indoors), whilst I was doing this the EMF metres were still pulsating and Graham was trying to photograph the laser light. Almost instantaneously Graham and I asked if anyone was smoking because the both of us saw a mist formation pass us (from the group behind) and head into the laser lights (which in hindsight was the opposite direction that our cigarette smoke was going). Scott and Laura built up the courage to walk down the path in the same direction that we had seen the mist, and almost immediately they came back, apparently they heard a noise, like footfalls and wanted to return to the relative safety of the rest of the group!
As we continued to ask spirit to make a noise I became aware of a male energy, his name was Jerome and he was wearing modern clothing (1960s) he stood about 5’5” and was roughly 60 years old and sported a bald head and round spectacles. To me he looked like Ghandi. I then asked if he could do something different or make a very loud noise. I saw the tree opposite me shake and then something fell out of the tree right beside everyone, but it made no noise. I tried to shake the tree but it didn’t move. (and like I said earlier, it wasn’t windy)
From here we walked further down the path, this time it didn’t feel quite so bad as before, although I came to an abrupt stop when I heard a growl. I thought it could be an animal but nothing moved in the woods, but it sounded like it was right beside me.
Once again Scott and Laura ventured off into the woods and once again came back in such a short amount of time, in fact the path out from where there had ventured wasn’t a difficult path, but because Scott wanted to get out quick he just bulldozed his way out through trees and branches, which was very amusing to watch. They had to get out of there because they had heard footfalls which according to Scott & Laura sounded human.
Whilst we were talking photos in this area we all noticed that it seemed misty, when our torches were shone upwards it seemed there was a mist above us. During this period many orbs were photographed and I captured a very strange mist on my camera (photo added to ghostly gallery )
Scott suggested that we should go to where he and Laura heard the footfalls, within a matter of minutes after asking spirit to make a noise we all heard similar footfalls and yes it did sound like a person, but it also sounded like someone venturing through a wooded area, however when I investigated and looked behind the very old tree that was blocking our view (the same spot Scott & Laura chose) I was expecting to see a fairly thick wooded area, but to my surprise it was completely open for about 50 yards and when I shone my torch nothing moved (if it were an animal).
I decided that we should do an EVP experiment at this point, as we hadn’t done any all evening. However this was not the right time, as I cannot play the recording because there are so many expletives and laughing, because everybody could not complete this simple exercise without laughing. However as we were playing back the 3 minute recording the EMF metres were once again pulsating as if spirit found it just as funny as we did.
After calming down and I continued to record short clips after asking spirit to make a noise, Graham exclaimed that he had just heard a growl and it sounded more like a person than an animal.
As we were leaving the woods we all took many photos, I however had captured a red orb, which although as far as I know doesn’t mean anything, I have rarely captured a red orb, often they are white (or grey), blue, green and yellow.
This was an amazing ghost hunt, as the level of spirit noises and general spookiness of it all was truly brilliant, we especially liked the footfalls as we know that we were definitely the only people there and we saw no animals.
