The Luteplayer - East Malling, Kent
27th March 2010
The earliest record we can trace of Heath
Farm is back to 1872 where it can been seen on Ordinance Survey maps of
the time, but it is safe to assume it had been on this site for many years
before. The Oast House was originally used to dry fresh hops before they
were sent to the brewers, to be used for flavouring beer. A typical Oast
House consisted of the 'oast' and the 'stowage'. The oast was a kiln,
with a plenum chamber fired by charcoal at ground floor and the drying
floor directly above. The steep pitched roof channelled the hot air through
the hops to the top. The stowage, was the barn section to the rear, and
this would have had a cooling floor and press at first floor and storage
area at ground floor.

During our stay a certain amount of other information was forthcoming to the team of a clairvoyant nature. As Ghost Connections conducts scientifically based investigations we do not publish such observations, however, this information is held on a separate database and may prove interesting when compared to other peoples experiences. Should you wish to discuss this information please email us.
It was unfortunate that Paddy was alone at the time he heard the voice in the upstairs corridor as this means the occurrence cannot be verified, neither did he have any recording equipment with him. It is for this reason that we do not conduct lone vigils as anything witnessed cannot be corroborated. It is also highly possible the voice he heard was possibly Kim, Dave or Ian as they would have been beneath him and voices could have travelled via the rear stairway, although Paddy is adamant that this was not the case. With no recording to examine further we cannot come to any conclusions about this.
|Many thanks to the owners of this building for entertaining our sudden and no doubt rather odd request, the trust put upon is much appreciated.|
