Undisclosed Manor House - Visit 14

29th January 2011

Parts of this building date back to the fourteenth century originally a medieval hall house many original features remain including the great hall itself. Never investigated until we chanced across it some years ago this venue has given us some great results but less so in recent visits, so we are always hopeful that the next visit will be the night it all happens. It was a very cold night, despite being indoors, but wrapped up well we hoped for a more productive evening.


A return to one of our favourite venues with the hope of again witnessing some paranormal phenomena and to record evidence of possible paranormal activity.

Using our normal visual and scientific methods combined with spiritual theory, we adopted a more relaxed method. We find that a lot of things can occur during breaks or when we are not actively on a vigil. For this reason we spent more time in the crew room in the hope that whilst we were doing so, and were more at ease, something unexpected may occur


Unlit walk around : Whole house

Started ground floor kitchen, first floor via rear servants staircase, length of the first floor room till descending via the main staircase, entrance back to great hall and crew room. At moments during the walk around Ian did call for anyone who was curious about what we were doing to make themselves know or approach us.

Session 1: crew room (unlit)

We sat silent for a while before calling out for recordable activity.

Session 2: crew room (lit)

A repeat of session one but with the light on, as there is as much possibility of activity in these conditions, so we thought we would try this.

Additional walk around: West wing

After a break we discussed the reported phenomena one of which is a sighting in what's called The Tudor Room. We had spent time in this room on previous visits to no avail, even slept in it for the night, however, a review of the records regarding this sighting suggested that we in fact had the wrong room. For this reason we spent some time exploring this possibility.

Unlit walk around : Whole house

The smell of burning wood was investigated and it was found that a fire have recently been lit in the fireplace of the adjacent great hall, this had not been noticed before but did explain the smell.

The beep sound was identified as a malfunctioning battery powered smoke detector.

The noise heard by Paddy on the first floor is of interest. As mentioned Dave and Ian had not entered the room and moved on around the corridor and turned a corner. Paddy and Kim were further behind and the noise occurred as they reached the Tudor Room. There is no reason for the floor board to have been settling or be disturbed by any of the team, neither were they connected to the floor boards in the corridor or those being walked on by Ian and Dave. We have no explanation why Paddy heard this.

Session 1: crew room (unlit)

With no results no conclusions can be drawn.

Session 2: crew room (lit)

With no results no conclusions can be drawn.

Additional walk around: West wing

With no results no conclusions can be drawn.

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

A disappointing night but worth while as you never know? Our thanks as always go to the owners for their support in allowing us so much freedom to conduct regular investigations at this location.
