Pluckley Woods ghost hunt 23rd November 2012
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:-
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.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt 26th October 2012
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.

Pluckley Screaming Woods ghost hunt, 6th October 2012
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:-
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 Screaming Woods – 6th October 2012
In aid of The Children’s Trust Charity
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.
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.
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.

Oldbury Hill Fort ghost hunt 5th October 2012
nr Sevenoaks, Kent
Oldbury Hill is a strange place, not least because many do not know that once you climb the escarpment you are in the old fort. Our ghost hunt was hampered by the heavy rain, but we do not cancel a ghost hunt due to rain because most of the time the trees will protect us from the rain.
After making my way to a familiar spot a male energy by the name of Peter came forward, he was about 26 years old and his was wearing what I would describe as peasant clothing. Whilst this energy was around many guests felt as if they were being watched. There was plenty of activity of his presence shown on our KII and communication devices with a couple of people reporting that they had seen shadows move further along the path.
On using the spirit box, Peter was able to use the device to say “Hello” and my name.
Unfortunately due to the rain we could not tell whether the noises that we were hearing were normal for the woods or whether these noises were made by spirit. The same was true of call outs and whistles, although there were some odd noises heard nearby. There was no point undertaking an EVP experiment as this too would have been fruitless because of the sound of the rain.
The second spot was on the edge of the fort, were once again there was high levels of KII EMF activity and good communication via our electronic equipment. I decided that this would be a good place to do a séance as the energies here were the sort of spirit that would move people.
During the séance there was a lot of arm movement and spirit were able to push people, sometimes on demand. The spirit that was responsible was called Jeffery and although he didn’t tell me much his was in his late 50s or early 60s and was a playful character who was more than willing to show the guests that he was near us by moving the guests.
I cannot say that this was an enjoyable ghost hunt, but this is solely due to the weather and the amount of walking at this venue is greater than many of our other outdoor events. This ghost hunt at this location will be repeated but not during the winter when the likelihood of bad weather is high.
