Private Residence - Kent
Three representatives from Ghost Connections visited the property prior
to the investigation to speak to the occupier about these occurrences
and to look over the house to see if an investigation was viable. Whilst
we did so we certainly felt that there was something about the place and
the areas of the house mentioned above, anyway, what team of paranormal
investigators would turn down the opportunity to investigate an ex funeral
At 11.10pm we gathered in the lounge with our host to conduct an our pendulum experiment. Paddy's camcorder was set up to film close ups of the pendulum to capture any movement that might occur, Kim's camcorder was set up on a tripod in the corner of the room looking inwards to the pendulum and both Paddy's and Kim's voice recorders were running, also again the whole team were taking stills. The temperature inside the dome was 23.6C, outside was 23.9C. At 11.00pm Dave started posing questions to any spirits that might be about suggesting they might wish to come closer and move the crystal pendulum for us? The team and their host were feeling quite comfortable and at 11.20pm some slight movement of the pendulum was noticed. Dave continued to call for spirit and a some more significant movement was noted. At 11.25 close up filming of the pendulum switched from Paddy's to Ian's Cam as Paddy's tape had run out. At this point the temperature inside the dome was 24.4C and outside was 24.6C, by 11.50pm these had risen slightly to inside the dome being 24.4C and outside 24.9C. Paddy was still complaining of a sharp pain in his left shoulder? At 11.57pm we chose to end the experiment and move to the ground floor dinning room.
After a break we cleared the dinning table for a glass experiment, Paddy,
Ian and Dave took part in this along with our host, Kim filmed the session
on her camcorder, but after half an hour of asking for spirit to help
us to move the glass there was nothing to show for our efforts. Hence
at 1.10am we decided to loose the glass and try a "spiritual experiment",
in other words a séance over the table. There were 4 clear knocks
heard from the corner of the room behind Dave which seemed to be in response
to our request for activity, after we asked again another 2 knocks were
heard by all. Subsequent knocks were also heard but these were more ambiguous
in origin and some of these noises could be explained by some wind chimes
in the back garden. At one point though, during the séance, Ian
thought he saw a shadow in the hallway at the bottom of the stairs which
darted up the stairs as he turned to look? Sadly this was all that was
all that could be noted from this session so at 2.00am we decided to end
the séance, and the investigation.
|There were occasions when we thought we heard knocks, some that could and some that could not be explained. Regrettably there were no major unexplainable occurrences on the night of this investigation and nothing was caught on any of the camera footage or EVP recordings made on the night . What Ian thought he saw at the bottom of the stairs could have simply been the effect of tired eyes, and both his and Kim's feelings in the loft could have been brought on by the slightly enclosed space. Sadly neither of these occurrences can be classed as paranormal. There was an amount of information forthcoming of a clairvoyant/psychic kind, but this cannot be validated. As Ghost Connections conducts scientifically based investigations we do not publish such observations, however, this information is held on a separate database and is released upon request at our discretion.

It is always nice to be invited to investigate a private residence, especially one with a past like this building has. However, given the total absence of occurrences on the night and lack of evidence collected on our equipment we are not able to conclude that there is any paranormal activity here. But this does not mean that there isn't any, may be we were just unlucky on the night? As we keep in frequent contact with our host we will not doubt hear of any other odd goings on.
Our host wishes to keep the both themselves and the identity of the property confidential, which we are of course happy to do. But needless to say we pass on our thanks for the invitation................ and for the sandwiches!
