Undisclosed 14th Century Manor House – Kent
18th July 2009

|After leaving our kit in the usual place and
walking the house to ensure we were alone and the house secure, we proceeded
directly to what we call the Tudor Room.
First session - séance – The Tudor Room
Second session - vigil – The Tudor Room
Dave started calling out asking for a continuation of the atmosphere experienced earlier on. This was met by the odd tap within the room, then the chair Dave had used before the break cracked as though it had been moved or even sat on!, this was closely followed by the same from the one previously used by Ian. This was not just the once or twice as this happened a few times to the point that Ian tried to demonstrate to the rest of the team that it would not be possible to make that particular noise by playing with the chair he had used. As he did so the same noise again came from Dave's chair as if to say “yes you can”? These noises happened periodically and became less frequent, along with other odd taps heard within the room. After a little while with nothing to report we decided to take another break and move on to another area of the house.
During this break we went out by the back door for a cigarette and encountered some weird goings on. One of the rear windows by the back door cracked and when requested it cracked again. This first happened to the left hand side window then the right and then again on the left. Paddy investigated them by pushing the panes and could recreate the noise but only with some considerable force.
Third session -séance – The Victorian Bedroom
Despite a prolonged attempt to encourage some activity there were no noises, feelings, sensations or anything to report on, other than the teams growing tiredness, so it was not long before we had another break to attempt to refresh us.
With little else we could do we continued our night time tour until we
thought it was about time to return to the house, at which point we decided
the fresh air had done little to invigorate us and closed the investigation.
|The Tudor Room
The taps or clicks and sounds of movement heard from within or outside the room during the first session had not been experienced on previous visits, therefore, could not necessarily be put down to the usual movement of the building, currently we have no explanation for these.
The noises caused by the two chairs during the second session were very unusual. It was first thought that this could have been due to the chairs settling into their natural position after having been sat on during the first session but given the length of the break we had between these sessions we felt that they had time enough to do this before the occurrence. We also tried to mimic the noise but applying pressure to one of the chairs and were unsuccessful. These moments can be seen on the accompanying investigation videos and we can also offer no explanation for this. These videos also includes some of the footage from Ian's camcorder, which was placed outside the room, as some unexplainable noises were caught on the audio.
The Victorian Bedroom
Other footage and recordings are still being scrutinised and should more results be found this report will be updated.
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. Should you wish to discuss this information
please email us.
|As always we had a good night, some moments proved very interesting and others not but that's investigating for you. As normal little more information was released to us and this wonderful house still remains a mystery. The video footage provides some interesting moments some we were aware of at the time and some we were not. We could never get tired of investigating this venue and look forward to a return with a difference, Ghost Connection's first 36 hour investigation, “The Manor 36”.|
|Many thanks again to the owners for the trust they put in us and allowing us unlimited access to this venue, we are more than very appreciative.|
