Pluckley Woods ghost hunt – 23-11-2012

Pluckley Woods ghost hunt 23rd November 2012

Pluckley, Kent

This particular evening was a crisp 2 degrees Celsius with a clear sky and some moonlight, which although looked atmospheric made the woods a lot lighter than when there is no moon, as the moonlight makes it seem much more open than it is. However with the moon, there wasn’t any need for a torch as the pathways could easily be seen.

I started in my usual spot and after a short while a male spirit energy approached us, he was 33 years old and from the 1890s and gave me the impression that he was a farmer as he wore green coloured trousers and a check shirt but I found it odd that he wasn’t wearing a hat, as in that period farmers would have worn hats.

After some brief KII activity and communication via our electronic equipment I started a séance to give the guests some physical evidence of the spirit energy present. Whilst the farmer spirit energy was present, another male energy came forward to touch and move the guests as part of the séance. His name was Michael and he had dark and hair and a stocky build.

Michael was able to gently move some of the guests arms and push one or two of the guests as well as using our hands to stroke the faces and hair of some of the guests, which was a strange sensation for all those concerned.

A female spirit energy was also present, although she took a while to approach us and as I was telling the guests that she was approaching, one of the guests commented that they thought that they could see a shadow on the path of a person approaching us.

During the séance many guests commented that they could see lights behind me, one guest described the lights as being similar to shooting stars but much smaller and nearer to the ground.

At the end of the séance I did an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment.

There were several responses to the question asked but even under extensive analysis the recordings could not be enhanced that much and it took a lot longer to figure out the words being spoken by the spirit. The best can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/YqBQUmFSJ0Y
http://youtu.be/5ZKtMF9HbrE
http://youtu.be/R1kt4bWaJSs

We would recommend listening to these several times to actually hear the words spoken.

 

The second location I set up the laser grid and pointed it along the path, some guests commented that they could see shadows within this grid, although I couldn’t because I was seeing the spirit energies.

Various spirit energies came and went, which the guests were able to detect on our KII meters and there was some communication via the gadgets.

There were also some strange noises heard further along the path and behind us, many of which sounded like footfalls of people.

Some guests ventured further along the path to investigate a light that they could see and the shadows in the grid.

At this point I started using our Spirit Box (a device that scans the FM radio waves in reverse at 100ms). First several names were heard, none of them belonging to anyone present, then we all heard “Hi” and “Hello”.

I asked how many guests were present and we all heard a very clear “5” then one of the guests who were investigating further along the pathway returned. I then asked the same question and we all heard a very clear “6” I also asked how many were further along the path and once again we all heard a very clear “3”. All of these answers were correct as there were 9 of us in total.

Once again a very successful ghost hunt with some good evidence, both physical and audible experienced by the guests.

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor – 3-11-2012

Toys Hill and Weardale Manor ghost hunt 3rd November 2012

Toys Hill, Kent

We often find that this time of year is a better outdoor ghost hunt as there isn’t much noise outside, obviously being the weekend before Guy Fawkes we were treated to some interesting firework displays!

Our first session was under the trees where the manor house would have stood, this in the past has been the scene of quite a lot of activity and as usual there were high levels of EMF energy shown on our KII meters as well as some good communication via our other electronic equipment.

Some of the guests saw lights in the trees as well as shadows, these were not fireworks or car lights as they were too low to the ground. The shadows were unexplained although I have seen similar when holding previous ghost hunts at this location.

A couple of guests who had stayed with me under the trees (the rest had wandered off) felt a brush on their legs, they said that it had felt like a dog had brushed past them. This has also been reported here and one previous ghost hunt, we all heard the sound of a dog approaching.

After wandering deeper into the woods I stopped at a familiar area, as this has been the scene of so much activity on previous ghost hunts and held a séance here.

A male spirit energy called Daniel joined us, he gave his age as early 20s and the year as 1911. Daniel was easily able to move many of the guests arms, push them and generally sway them on the spot. Several guests also reported the feeling of people pulled downwards, and some were physically pulled downwards by their arms.

Dave (guest) was firstly pushed backwards, although I had noticed that he stood in front of a tree when we started and I am fairly sure he thought the same tree was behind him, but due to all the movement felt by the other guests, the tree was no longer directly behind Dave. So when he was pushed backwards he didn’t resist as he thought the tree would stop him from falling over, but he just missed the tree and fell over!

When Dave finally stood back up Daniel continued to push Dave until he fell face first into the mud which gave us all a good laugh! Whilst all this was going on some of the guests on the other side of the séance circle could hear footfalls and shadows behind them and asked that Carl (GHE Team member) go to investigate. As Carl was now opposite me and I could clearly see him, on my side of the circle we too heard the sound of footfalls behind us and the sound of twigs snapping, like someone had walked over the sticks. We also heard some heavy sounds, like something dropping from the trees or something heavy being dropped, but considering it wasn’t windy the source of this noise remains a mystery.

After we finished the Séance I turned on my Spirit Box (a device that scans the FM radio frequencies in reverse at 100ms) and then asking for spirit to say our names. Several times we heard the name “Carl” and “Tom” (Tom was one of the guests) and “Hartnoll” (Tom’s surname) plus “Tommy” and “Donna” (another guest). During this time there was high levels of EMF energy which could be seen by the guests on our KII meters.

After leaving this area of the woods and heading back to the site of the old Manor I held an EVP (Electronic voice phenomena) experiment to record ghost voices. There were many unexplained noises in the recording and several possible EVPs but only one which could easily be understood. You can hear that one at http://youtu.be/AcT2s33BR3E

Once again a very good ghost hunt and one in which many of the guests felt spirit energy in the form of a physical sensation, plus the added bonus of hearing their names called out on the Spirit Box.

Carl – Paranormal Investigator joined me from Ghost Hunt Events

Landguard Fort ghost hunt – 10-11-2012

Landguard Fort Ghost Hunt, 10th November 2012
Felixstowe, Suffolk

This was our first visit to this venue. When we looked around the place it was in the height of the summer and a nice warm day, although spiritual activity was high on that day even though the place was full of tourists, so as a team we were really looking forward to this ghost hunt as the place has so much potential and it is a large venue with plenty of rooms for guests to investigate.

I had divided up the Fort into two areas for each team and during our initial walk the other members of my team couldn’t believe how much space was available and we knew that neither group would be disturbed by each other as we were far enough away from each other.

I had earmarked one particular area that I felt was going to be a good spot for any séance as even when I visited this on the site visit, it was a spooky place. This was the Caponier.

After letting the guests wander with our equipment for a few minutes in the very long tunnel, which had many rooms adjoining it I came across a male spirit called Christopher, he was a Second World War soldier (Army) who had fair skin, light coloured hair, of a slim build but about 6’ tall. Some of the guests were able to communicate with him via the gadgets. As we approached the Caponier the KII meters came alive, which led me to believe that a séance here would be very productive.

During the séance Christopher managed to move the guests arms, push and pull them and sway them from left to right and even move them in a strange circular motions.

The second group had already been accustomed to our equipment and were eager to set off in the warren of tunnels, however we immediately started at The Caponier with a séance to see what level of activity this group would have.

A male spirit by the name of Mr Bamford was present, this energy seemed to have no emotion and he was a stocky chap, square faced with dark hair. The KII meters were left around the room and showed little sign of life until the séance started, then were active throughout. The séance started with gentle pushing and arm movement, just about all the guests had their arms moved, then the spirit started to push people into awkward and painful positions, some guests were pushed into the walls of the Caponier. Many guests including myself felt a heavy pressure on shoulders and the top of our arms as well as in our backs, the spirit energy was pushing us all downwards. At one point I had to step of the circle to help guests and in doing so the weight I felt in my arms was passed onto the person standing on my right, he too felt the very uncomfortable pain on his shoulders, but this was not a downwards pressure but an upward one, which is a strange feeling. After I closed the séance the spirit energy departed.

After our controlled sessions we let the guests wander throughout the fort with any of our equipment, whilst we either accompanied them or let them investigate on their own. I spent a lot of time trying to find people as there were so many rooms and so few guests (compared to some of our other events). Whilst walking through the tunnel complex I heard a lot of bangs, metal clanking and other metallic sounds along with the sound of footsteps on a wooden floor, which was odd because all the floors were I stood were concrete. As it turned out I was alone in the tunnel complex, but didn’t know it until I had walked the whole tunnel.

I joined a few guests in the upstairs rooms of the keep, there were many female energies present here & I told the guests that if they knocked on the door they may hear a response. One of the rooms there was a female spirit called Mary, who was very smartly dressed, not military who was able to repeat knocks on command.

In one of the bath rooms I came across a male spirit called Terry who was a handyman from 1880s. Terry was able to interact with the guests through our equipment and although we cannot be sure but several times noises were heard within the bath room, unfortunately no-one could actually distinguish or agree what the sounds were e.g. wooden, metallic etc.

When walking upstairs through the gun rooms on my own I heard the sound of someone walking behind me, as I turned to talk to them, there was no one there! Guests who were in this area also heard similar sounds and one guest thought that a GHE team member had stood beside him, when he turned to speak, no-one was there!

Sean (GHE Paranormal Investigator) also heard the sound of “wet” footsteps behind him when walking on the upper levels and once again, no-one was there.

Some of the guests whilst walking in the tunnel felt a “do not approach” feeling, so badly that they came to find me to find out why. When I entered the tunnel and the surrounding magazine rooms I couldn’t sense any spirit energies and the guests admitted that it didn’t feel the same now that I was with them.

This ghost hunt was a brilliant one, as the level of paranormal activity felt by all the guests was high throughout the night. We as a team thoroughly enjoyed the Fort (and have booked more dates for 2013) as it was a pleasure to investigate a large venue where we could let our guests go anywhere they wanted without fear of any hazards. We are still analysing our video from this event but will publish any interesting clips on our YouTube channel as soon as we have finished the analysis.

Pluckley Screaming Woods – 26-10-2012

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 26th October 2012

Pluckley, Kent

This is what I would call the first winter ghost hunt, cold and rather muddy, however this did not detract from the level of paranormal activity experienced by the guests.

The first location we had some good but brief moments of KII activity and some communication via our electronic equipment, but the majority of the time we were hearing footfalls and other strange noises from within the woods. Given the nature of these woods it could not have been a person as they would have needed a torch to navigate, which we didn’t see.

A female energy was present, although she did not tell me her name as she felt quite shy, however she was wearing a flowery dress and looked to be in her 30s.

Also present was a male spirit called Timothy and during the resulting séance, some arm movement was felt by the guests.

The second location, once again strange noises and footfalls were heard but still no obvious answer to the noise. I set up the laser grid but nothing was seen in this grid. Whilst we were looking into the grid I turned on my SB7 (Spirit Box) which scans the FM radio frequencies in reverse at 100ms intervals. As it is scanning in reverse we can be fairly sure any voices heard in normal time are from spirit because no radio station broadcasts in reverse.

On the SB7 we heard “Hello” and the names of some of the guests “Laura” “Lisa” and my name “Steve” and strangely when asking questions out loud the spirit responsible didn’t just say yes, they said “I understand” or “Correct” which is rather odd. There were lots of word spoken although not all could be understood.

Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and one in which the guests had a number of paranormal occurrences or experiences that they could not explain, not to mention the very good session with the Spirit Box.

Fort Borstal ghost hunt, Rochester – 20-10-2012

Fort Borstal ghost hunt 20th October 2012
Fort Borstal, Rochester, Kent

Fort Borstal is one of those sites as a Ghost Hunt company we never thought we would be able to investigate, because it is privately owned. However we were nicely surprised after the owners contacted us wanting to know whether we would be interested in investigating their Fort.

Considering this is one of the five that was built especially to protect Chatham and we already investigate Fort Horsted (which is the largest) we were very keen to see what this Fort had in terms of spiritual activity. We were not disappointed.

The approach to this Fort is strange, not least because of the lack of lighting and it certainly looks a scary place upon arrival and as my team said to me, very atmospheric.

For this ghost hunt we had three distinctly different areas to investigate; The Caponier, which as the worst staircase in the world to navigate, 92 steps down (and back up!), The Officers Mess, which was a secret area even to those soldiers stationed there in The Second World War and a third underground Caponier.

My area for the night was the main Caponier (with the wonderful staircase [sic])

The first group had varying degrees of activity on our electronic equipment; some spikes of KII activity and some communication, but I thought it would be better to hold a séance since this particular place doesn’t get any people visiting and the energy levels would naturally be low.

A male energy by the name of Thomas came forward, he told me that he was a Colour Sergeant (Sergeant Major) in the Army. He was about 6’2” aged in his 20s and of stocky build and he was wearing civilian clothing (a blue shirt). He also gave me the impression that he was a funny character and had a wicked sense of humour. The was also another male energy present; Dave a private. Both were from the Second World War era.

During the séance many voices, mumbling and footsteps were heard, although given where the other two groups were, no person on site could have been responsible for these noises.

Both Thomas and Dave treated most of the guests to some gentle arm movement as they in turn went from one person to another to manipulate them.

At the end of the séance I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment. Due to the natural echo because of the long tunnels cancelling out the background noise was quite difficult, as was listening for ghost voices, however the clearest and most audible from this session can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/9euwDXfViZc

The Second group I took to the other end of the Caponier (as it is a double Caponier).  Almost immediately there was good communication from our electronic equipment but no KII spikes. During the resulting séance a WWII Soldier by the name of Jeremy came forward and was able to move some of the guests arms. There was also a female energy present, aged about 20 years old and called Isabelle. During the séance we heard lots of noises, some in the tunnels and one very loud sound that came from the dry moat, this sounded like wood being banged (an impact sound). Several whistles we also heard, although when we heard them no-one could say in which direction the sound came from.

The Third group I took to the same area as the first group, although very little happened because the group were busy laughing and joking with each other and paying little interest to the reason why we were there i.e. ghost hunting.

The strangest sound that we heard was the sound of footfalls, as if someone was approaching but given the staircase and the fact that it was dark, we would have easily seen someone approach, as they would have needed a torch to navigate the staircase.

After we finished our controlled part of the night, we let the guests (under supervision) return to any area which they enjoyed or wanted to experience again in a smaller group or on their own.

I spent some time with another member of my team in the Officer’s Mess just for about 10 minutes or so but during those 10 minutes the both of us heard; a door slam (there are no doors to slam), lots of footsteps, knocking sounds and female voices. We also did several EVP recordings as there was a male energy present who seemed to be of great importance. This energy didn’t like either of us being there and made us feel uncomfortable. Carl who was listening with sound enhancement equipment heard some responses when I asked whether this spirit energy was from Yorkshire. Carl heard “go” “leave” and some laughing.

I too also heard sounds but couldn’t hear any words although I did have a strange chemical taste in my mouth. We both also saw some strange lights further along the corridor.

On analysing our EVP recordings the following results can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/CZe02y2bBJw
http://youtu.be/ad4R00PIaHE

After this the remaining guests joined us in this area to experience the same feelings that we had both just felt. Although the uncomfortable feeling had dissipated, probably due to the fact that any area isn’t scary when there are lots of people about, we did hear some noises, taps, knocking, whistles and some loud bangs.

However one of the guests did capture a strange photograph, which seems to have the shape of a person at the end of the corridor. Both the photographs below are copyrighted to Emma Coyle.

All in all a very enjoyable ghost hunt, especially since we were the first ghost hunting company to investigate Fort Borstal, hopefully future visits to this location we will have more activity experienced by us and our guests.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt – 6-10-2012

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt, 6th October 2012
Pluckley, Kent

This event was organised with military precision, simply because it was in aid of The Children’s Trust charity and we had the same amount of guests that we would normally have for an indoor event, so the car parking was one such issue. We also had certain members of the team in fixed areas, normally our ghost hunts follow a set path, whereas this event we had a central meet point and all teams went off from this point.

That said the event ran without and problems and there were other people wandering the woods, but we didn’t see them all night.

My area was not only the furthest from our start point but also the most active with numerous paranormal occurrences that have happened here from various public and private events.

The first group here had very high levels of KII activity and some communication via our electronic equipment, but since time was an issue with this event, I held a séance quite quickly so that the guests could experience some physical spiritual activity.

We were joined by a female energy called Grace, she was about 26 years old and gave me the year as 1870. She looked like a typical farm girl wearing a blue dress which was well worn and she had long brunette coloured hair.

Grace treated the guests to some gentle but purposeful arm movement.

At the end of the séance I conducted an EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena a.k.a. ghost voice) experiment, although at the time when the recording was played back we all heard some possible ghost voices, on inspection and clarification on a computer there were no understandable voices audible.

The Second group once again experienced high levels of KII activity as well as some brief communication via our electronic gadgets, however upon commencement of the séance a male spirit energy by the name of Tommy came forward. He was a strict and sensible spirit energy, aged in his late 60s and about 5’7” in height. Tommy gave me the impression that he was a local farm trader, as he seemed to be carrying a crate of fruit.

During the séance Tommy was able to move the guests arms as well as push and pull them. Some guests felt a series of cold spots behind them, which seem to come and go as well as seeing shadows and light formations within the woods. Footfalls were also heard approaching us, but no-one arrived.

At the end of this session I held another EVP experiment. There were several audible responses to the guests questions, these can be heard at:-

http://youtu.be/f49rU5lfO50
http://youtu.be/KLe7v4fhI_8
http://youtu.be/8j-2YGxZamQ

The Third group we more or less went straight into a séance as Tommy was still about and he was able to give the guests some more arm movement and push them gently. However the atmosphere changed quite quickly as another male energy came forward, however I couldn’t see him clearly, he was however about 6’ tall and of a broad build. He took an instant dislike to one of the guests and started to affect her. The guest felt extremely hot and had to be removed from the séance circle. However as soon as she returned the same energy did exactly the same thing to the guest. I decided that it was probably best not to continue the séance circle. On speaking to the guest afterwards she said that although she could hear me, it sounded like she was underwater as everything seemed to be muffled and distorted. She felt very hot throughout the séance and thought she was going to faint on more than one occasion. However after we had finished the séance circle the guest said that she felt normal again, albeit a little drained from the experience.

Once again a very good ghost hunt with some excellent paranormal activity encountered by the guests.

Pluckley Woods – 6-10-2012

Pluckley Screaming Woods – 6th October 2012

In aid of The Children’s Trust Charity

Group C
Sean (team) and I took the first group to an area that is very active and immediately we had activity on the KII and Ghost Pro’s.  I had the name Emily in my head, so asked if the spirit present was Emily, the ghost pro answered yes.  We established Emily comes here to play and that she was less than 10 years old.  She could see that it was dark, and prefers it in the daylight.  We used the PSB7 with various inaudible words coming through, however sean was wearing his ear amplifiers and heard my name clearly (Kym).  We also heard whistles when calling out.

Group B
Whilst taking the second group to the same area, myself and a guest heard a groan to our left.  Again we were having KII and Ghost Pro activity.  Whilst using the PSB7 we heard the name Bill – when asking spirit if that was his name we got yes.  Whilst standing quietly and listening, Sean was able to hear mens voices through his ear amplifiers, but there were no men in this group and all other groups were too far away to be heard.

Group C
Again we took the third group to the same area.  We had KII and Ghost Pro activity, initially confirming Bill was with us again.  We could also hear unexplained noises around, and felt we were being watched throughout the evening.

A brilliant night – Pluckley never disappoints.
