Undisclosed 14th Manor House - Visit 20
8th September 2012
An unexpected visit to one of
Ghost Connections favourite venues made for an interesting evening.
Due to the nature of the site GC were not expecting to be able to carry out further investigations here as renovations have commenced and are due to continue through until March 2013, when the property will then be available for purchase.
A chance meeting with the owner and keys obtained GC ventured to the
|Although familiar with the site a walk round
was undertaken to familiarise the team with any changes to rooms and to
highlight any areas that would be dangerous in the dark. Lights are not
available on site as there is no electricity currently in the building,
there is however security lighting outside.
The team note that 90% of the lower floor now has new flooring and a room previously unavailable to them is now in a safe condition to start the investigation.
It was decided that the investigation would begin in the dining room
and further rooms would be chosen dependant on any occurrences that might
All the following observations were documented by Kim in a note book. The following sequence of events is taken from those notes.
During this session the team sit quietly, occasionally calling aloud to ascertain any other presence in the room. All that follows are occurrences during that time.
The team settle down after the initial equipment set up. The team are sitting relatively close to one another in the corner of the room by the window. This window looks onto an extensive lawned area and pond. There is a constant noise from a motorway close by.
Dave ventures down into the cellar immediately below the dining room.
The rest of the team stay seated in the dining room and hear several clicks close by to them.
Dave returns and claims he heard a scurrying noise above his head, coming from the room that the team were sitting in.
Ian and Dave heard a thump sound.
Graham feels like there is someone else in the room.
A heavy thump was heard by all the team.
Kim saw a green light glimmering in the doorway.
The whole team expressed a feeling of oppression.
Several more clicks are heard by the team around the room.
Footsteps and a shuffling sound are heard by Kim and Dave in the far
corner of the room.
The Pink Room
Due to the nature of any building there is always varying amounts of movement; be it the building warming up or cooling down. Light taps and clicks can be attributed to this.
Certain noises can be heard that can be associated with this and have to be considered in any investigation.
A new flooring material had been laid and could produce certain noises once walked upon.
The scurrying noise Dave heard from the cellar, claiming that it was directly above where the team were sitting is interesting. The floor directly above making the ceiling of the cellar was indeed only a sheet of ply. No void had been created and only the one sheet was between the team and Dave.
One could then rule out a rodent scurrying between the floors boards as there were none in that location. The team are happy to accept that sound does carry and this could be one possible explanation.
The loud thump remains unexplained.
Graham claims to have seen a little boy illuminated by the window, at this exact time Ian was using his mobile phone and the window was illuminated briefly – Could this have caused a light shape that similar to the size of a small boy? Kim had also stated that she saw a boy – however this was seen as a shadow. Tricks of the light or something else?
The team are open to suggestions.
The electric feeling felt by Graham and Kim, but specifically Graham is harder to explain, and of course depends on your own personal beliefs as to what this can be explained as. There are belief systems that would state that this is a connection with spirit, others state cleaning chakras and even sensing your life force! The team lean towards static electricity, however have no explanation why this is so.

The green light seen by Kim could have been a trick of the
eye, and there is a perfectly feasible explanation for this. This is called
the Purkinje effect sometimes called the Purkinje shift, or dark adaptation
and is the tendency for the peak luminance sensitivity of the human eye
to shift toward the blue end of the colour spectrum at low illumination
