Perry Wood ghost hunt – 16th July 2011
I was very hopeful for Perry Wood ghost hunt, because it would be the third time I have investigated there and the last time was brilliant. However not all ghost hunts can be guaranteed to be brilliant, and this was one such occasion. It didn’t help that it was a clear sky and the full moon shone very brightly through the trees, this made it very light and most of the paths were lit up that we didn’t need torches. It is never scary when it is light!
Nevertheless spirit did join us at the top of the first hill it was a male energy called Billy and he passed over in 1960s. He was a chubby man (a lorry or coach driver) and suffered a heart attack. Billy proceeded to move the hands of some of the guests and make his presence known to the others by making it very cold beside them. Whilst we were holding the séance a loud crack was heard behind the group, but as it was so light we could see that there was nothing there. Whether this was spirit or not remains a mystery although we heard no more noises throughout the evening.
After much photo taking and some small amount of activity on the EMF Metres we proceeded to walk to the lookout point. It was a very eerie walk not because it was scary but because it was the complete opposite, it was so light, but so quiet and still. That is unusual because the previous occasions I can remember hearing animals and distant traffic.
Spirit energy here was quite impressive and orbs were captured in many photos along with strange mists. At one point Graham who had taken several orb photos reported that his camera was now not working, the camera card just stopped working (even two days after the card does not work, which is a mystery because camera cards are supposed to last a lifetime. A new card in the camera works fine).
On the walk back to the car park I stopped just as we were about to descend the steep hill as I had just seen a flash of light (white) in the trees to my right. Instinctively I took some photos and the photo that I took looks like cigarette smoke in it, but no one was smoking and one of the guests commented that they could smell cigarette smoke. The second photo is full of a mist formation that is so dense I have no idea what it is. Some of the guests suggested that it could be breath (as it was quite cold) so we tried to re-create that effect but to no avail. Whether this was active spirit or not I don’t know, as I did not sense any spirit at this point in the woods.
On balance this ghost hunt wasn’t as good as some of the recent ghost hunts, but equally they can’t all be brilliant, as we would not be able to distinguish a brilliant one from a mediocre one.
Perry Wood – 24th June 2011
After leaving the car park in the rain we made our way up the hill to where I have felt that it was the spookiest.
We started taking photos etc. but although some shots had orbs in them it is perfectly reasonable that some of the orbs captured could be rain droplets, however I categorise them that if an orb looks flat then it is more likely to be rain, pollen or an insect. If however it is 3D or looks more spherical then I believe these orbs to be of a spiritual nature.
Next we held a séance as my K2 metre was showing that there was indeed spiritual activity, I could already sense the energy, but I thought that it would be better to hold a séance so that the energy could make himself known to the group (Graham, Debbie, Laura & Scott). The male energy stood approximately 6’3″ in height, about 47-50 years old had dark brown or black short hair, a neatly trimmed beard and was of slim build by the name of Geoffrey. He wore a smart Green/Olive short sleeved shirt, with a black tie and had the air of authority about him. There was also a female energy present, she was in her early 20s and called Lerren, but she seemed shy and did not want to communicate.
During the séance Geoffrey started to move Laura and my hands very slowly and then twisted them until it hurt. The energy made his way around the circle trying to manipulate each person or to make them feel something. This largely proved unsuccessful, although there were little pushes or movements. Then the energy decided to do something different and make people to feel sick. He started with Laura who suddenly felt ill and nauseous. Laura said she needed to sit down as she thought she was tired, but as soon as she left the circle she felt fine. Within a matter of minutes everyone was feeling that same sickly feeling with the exception of me, but then as if a switch was turned on I too felt a strange sickness. I likened it to having a hangover and that throaty sickly feeling where you know you’ll feel better after being sick. Since this wasn’t a pleasant feeling I told the energy to stop that immediately. However shortly after this lights were seen by everyone quite close to the circle and further afield. Debbie & Scott saw lights on their own hands, Graham saw them in the distance, as did Laura who was sitting down. I didn’t see anything.
Then Graham thought he saw a real person behind Debbie as it looked solid, I decided to break the circle so that we could check and it turned out that it would have been impossible for a person to have been standing where Graham had seen something as the person would have had to have been 15′ tall, as the path slopes downwards. Various lights and humanoid shapes were then seen by Debbie, Scott and I and the whole group became very jumpy. As Scott pointed out some of the lights looked like a laser pointer or a laser target point others looked like a very bright torch. During this time we heard no-one approach or torches and since it was still raining that was unlikely.
Several photos were taken at this time and strange mists were captured, odd coloured orbs and at one point Debbie asked what she thought was Scott a question (it was a tree) but more worryingly she got an answer.
After we had calmed down we walked to the lookout point and although it seemed quite spiritually quiet there seemed to be a female energy that wanted to show her energy. As she stood just to me right I held my hand out and immediately felt her warmth. It seemed as if heat was rising from the ground, but the energy wanted to pull my hand downwards. I asked everyone else to put their hands where mine were and everyone felt the heat and the pressure. Then I asked the energy to do something, but without telling the group what I had asked for. Shortly afterwards Scott started to feel this and it became visibly apparent. Then I told everyone and they all confirmed that they too had felt the same but thought they were doing themselves. I had asked the energy to close their hands to make a fist.
When we were walking back towards the car park Graham commented that as soon as we walked from the relative openness of the lookout & what used to be a mill he felt anxious as we entered the wooded area where all the strangeness happened earlier.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves with the activity that had taken place and everyone had some personal evidence of some kind.
Do you want to have a thrilling ghost hunt of your own? Then you too can book a private group ghost hunt (4-10 people) for £10 per person. See Request a Ghost Hunt for more information and booking.
After a strenuous walk from the Car Park to the part of the
woods which had me looking over my shoulder when I visited in the day time, we
had arrived at the first investigation point.
The sky was fairly clear and the moon could be seen through
the trees, but as I started to talk some of the guests noted that according to
them it was getting darker. Two of the guests had a coughing fit and a
tightening of the chest (One a smoker). Within a short amount of time a male
energy presented himself to me, in his mid-20s he was also accompanied by his
father, both were Coppices and were dressed in light and roomy shirts with
waistcoats, dark coloured trousers and leather boots. The younger one was
called Michael and he was about 5’10” in height with dark hair. He
proceeded to make his way around the circle and started moving the hands of
Nathaniel (guest) who was to my right, much to Nathaniel’s surprise and
Michael then moved various people around the circle either
by moving their hands or by pushing them forwards or backwards or just rocking
them. Several times I called out to spirit in general to make a noise as it was
a still night and very few animal sounds were heard, but to no avail.
The use of the K2 Metre was interesting since there are no
electrical sources in the woods, the energy Michael had no problem lighting up
the metre almost on demand. I asked if he could light the metre up out of sequence
but he did not manage that. He did however manage to light up each one and hold
the energy at the same level for several seconds before lighting the next
After an EVP experiment we carried on walking to the lookout
point of the woods. This area was open to the elements and very cold in the
wind. However a very strong male energy was present and gave his name as Daqan
(pronounced as Dakin), he was 5’11” in height and of a muscular build he also
seemed to be Mediterranean or what was Yugoslavia. He had a square looking face
and black hair and a stubble beard. He gave his job as being similar to brick
making, although I didn’t recognise the bricks, they were a lot bigger than the
bricks we use today. Daqan moved just about everyone in the circle, some of the
movements were very forceful and purposeful, yet other movements were gentle
(as happened with Joan, Max & Rochelle – guests). At one point Kym
(Paranormal Investigator) saw a red light on the ground behind me which could
not have come from anything physical, as there are no lights for miles from
where we were. After about 40 minutes I conducted another EVP experiment and
then we made our way back as we were all a bit cold. On the way back I took
many photographs, one has a familiar person shape orb or collection of orbs
from deep within the woods (this will be uploaded to the Flikr photostream) and
Louise (guest) found a raffle ticket with her lucky numbers on it and then lost
it whilst walking.
Once again a very enjoyable evening for all.
