Wychling Woods ghost hunt, Kent – 8th September 2012
This is usually a very quiet place, especially at night, however there was another ghost hunt group within the vicinity of the church, mostly making a lot of noise and holding Ouija board sessions within the grounds on the churchyard. This is something that we condone.
However we continued into the woods behind the church as we have had a lot of activity in past ghost hunts happen in this area.
Once settled into an area which made people feel on edge at previous ghost hunts we were joined by a female energy by the name of Catherine, aged in her early 20s and passed over in early 1900s.
Plus a male energy called Geoffrey Hardcourt who was 56 years old also from 1900s. He told me that he lived near the church and he looked like a farmer especially because he was wearing mustard coloured trousers, a checked shirt and was of a stocky build.
Whilst we were communicating with these spirits via our electronic equipment we heard the sound of footfalls, this was not the other group because the sound emanated right behind one of the guests (Becky) which made her move very quickly towards the rest of us!
We also heard whistles in response to our whistles and other various noises. We know that it was not the other group as they made so much noise when moving around the woods, we could hear them long before they became aware of us.
Becky also felt something touch her leg which made her jump. Whilst we were standing in a circle, but not holding hands, Geoffrey was able to push people or gently rock them from side to side. Some of the guests were able to smell pipe tobacco.
During a session when I was tapping very lightly on a tree we all heard some tapping sounds in response to these taps.
When Catherine stepped closer to the group I suggested that they hold out their hands to feel Catherine; all the guests felt the same sensation; pins and needles in their hands and a strange stiffness in some of their fingers.
Very briefly a child energy came forward, this child was about 7 or 8 years old and came and stood near to the guests as they were holding out their hands for Catherine to touch.
During all of this we had little or no KII (EMF) activity on our electronic equipment.
Having noticed that the other group had now gone home, because the area was now back to its usual silence we moved from behind the church to a curious part of the woods close to the church which is an archaeological dig site. I have seen this dig site grow from just a few metres long to many metres long and at one stage an ancient wall was uncovered. I have always wondered whether this was the remains of a house.
We were joined by a female energy called Elizabeth who was a Land Girl during the Second World War. There were sporadic yet high levels of KII (EMF) energy in this area as well as quite a lot of communication from our electronic devices.
Some of the guests photographed Orbs and other light anomalies in this area, this is quite common in this area along with strange mist photographs.
Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt, in which all the guests had some personal physical activity and although the other group made a lot of noise they did not interfere with us nor their actions have any bearing on the evidence and sensations that we encountered throughout the evening.
Toys Hill & Weardale Manor ghost hunt – 17th August 2012
We haven’t had a lot of luck with the weather at this venue in 2012. First time it was -10 degrees Celsius back in February, then in April it was just before a thunderstorm, June it was a thunderstorm so fourth time lucky and this was well worth waiting for.
We started in the remains of the manor, gave the guests lots of our kit to investigate with and let them roam around. Many guests reported seeing shadows and lights within the near distance trees. I generally stayed put and various groups of people reported different activity in all directions, but the one thing they all commented on was the fact that all felt watched.
A male energy by the name of Philip approached, he was a gardener when there was a house at this place, he tipped his hat to me and some of the guests felt his presence.
Steve (guest) felt a light touch on his back and the sound of a dog, panting during the phase when the spirit Philip was around.
Many guests also reported hearing voices, whispering and whistles in one particular place. Four guests (Andy, Wendy, Marie & Shelley) all heard these sounds as well as the sound of a children’s music box. I then went over to the part to have a look and was met by a Frenchman spirit called Alain. He was about 55 years old and dressed in a smart black suit which had a silver pocket watch attached. He gave me the impression he was from 1900s.
The guests that had some of our equipment all had high levels of activity displayed on the various meters.
From here we decided to move into the woods to hold a séance, as the last time this proved very successful but due to the heavy rain it was not as enjoyable as it could have been.
Once again after finding a suitable spot there were high levels of activity shown on our KII meters and on our ghost communicators.
Within a few minutes of us starting a séance a male energy aged in his early 30s approached us, his name was Roger and he was wearing a white shirt and grey trousers and it was impossible to associate him with a period of time, although he wasn’t wearing a tie or hat.
Roger was very capable of moving people in various ways and generally pushed and pulled most of the group, starting gently and then as his confidence grew the level of movement increased and some people, especially Phil and Lisa, were manoeuvred into some rather uncomfortable positions.
Cold spots were also reported by the guests, mainly behind me as the temperature was a steady 20 degrees Celsius most of the night, these cold spots were felt behind four or five people and it felt like stepping into a freezer.
During the séance Andy felt a stick hit his legs and since Carl (GHE Team member) was outside the circle and at the time on the opposite side of Andy went to investigate although Carl could not see a stick anywhere near Andy. After the séance finished Andy found the stick about 14 inches in front of him.
After the séance finished, which I concluded after most people apart from two had either felt arm movement or had been pushed by Roger, some of the guests wandered deeper into the woods as they thought they heard voices and noises whilst the séance was taking place. The rest of the guests made their way out of the woods.
However those that stayed listening in the woods were soon returning because they heard footfalls in the woods and since no torch light was seen, this scared them.
We made our way back to the site of the manor house and conducted an EVP, although when we played the recording back very few anomalies were heard, however once we analysed them we discovered there were quite a few responses, although not all could be interpreted.
The best ones can be heard at:-
Once again a very enjoyable ghost hunt and a very productive one with many paranormal occurrences taking place.
After we had enjoyed a cup of coffee back at the car park and just before we were about to leave, Carl (team member) saw a “shadow” behind me and exclaimed that it looked too real to be a spirit and so the four of us who were there turned on all our torches to try to see what this was. To our amazement there was a young male (real person, wearing a blue shirt, black top and trousers and had glasses with curly black hair) standing very close to the hedge on the way out of the car park and even when I blinded this person with my torch he failed to move, but just looked down to the ground. All of us decided that this was a very good time to leave as he was probably drunk. As we were driving out of the car park we noticed this same person lying down on the grass beside the road which was really strange.
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.
