Undisclosed Former Hospital – East Kent
1st November 2014
We had no prior information
about this location. It was a place some of the team had visited before
during daylight hours, we decided to return for another look around at
Ian’s suggestion, primarily as he had not been there previously
and also for the others to see if its condition had deteriorated any further.
It was only after we left and were enjoying dinner in a local pub that
we decided to return after dinner in the dark to conduct an investigation
there. It is these spontaneous and unplanned evenings that tend to provide
more interesting results, and given what we had seen and felt earlier
that afternoon we were very excited to experience the place in darkness
and what results it might have to offer.
To explore the possibility of hauntings at this location
and see if we could record or experience any paranormal phenomena.
Investigators: Ian, Kim, Paddy, Dave and Graham.
After a while Paddy notice an illumination back along the corridor where we had come from.
Graham felt uncomfortable as though something was behind him.
Whilst standing still and quiet a loud knock is heard in our vicinity placed between Ian and Paddy. A second knock was heard as we discussed the first.
A breeze was felt coming down the corridor.
Paddy hears noises to his left may be two or three meters down the corridor.
Graham complains that his ears felt odd and he suddenly lost his balance.
The temperature suddenly dropped and there was a breeze combined with Paddy still hearing shuffling to his left. Dave also said he could now hear noises from the same direction as Paddy.
Dave commented on the cold breezes being felt and that they are colder and not in time with the gusts that could occasionally be heard outside. Whilst he says this over his voice the camcorder also picks up a whispery voice saying “I agree”! And whilst Dave spoke Ian thought he heard something being kicked further up the corridor.
Dave commented on hearing the wind outside but there was no wind in the building.
Kim said that she almost felt scared, which is unusual for any of us, and that the pitch black meant she could not see or anticipate anything and that made her feel more unsettled. Paddy on the other hand felt that was more comforting as being so dark it was impossible for his eyes to play tricks on him. This was just before Paddy then momentarily lost his balance.
More cold breezes came around us, we still thought these were unusually cold given more comfortable outside temperatures.
At this point Ian’s camcorder suddenly stops recording and there
is no further footage of this session, although it did continue for some
time after this point.

early on was later confirmed as being moonlight entering through an adjacent
The cold breezes that occasionally engulfed the group were first attributed to the wind outside. It was later in the session that Dave noticed that these gusts were not at the same time as those heard outside and also that it was not a cold evening, so why would these breezes be as chilly as they were? We cannot explain this but neither can we ignore that it was a windy night, so we cannot say these breezes had any paranormal origin.
There were a lot of sounds heard from all directions, in fact it became difficult to identify what direction some sounds were coming from, and some noises were closer than others. Although with the above mentioned breeze we cannot exclude the obvious explanation of falling debris within the derelict building, or the movement of vermin etc. However, some of the noises heard seemed more deliberate in nature and also seemed to be repeated on request. We would conclude that there were natural noises heard but we are convinced that others were not naturally occurring.
There were two examples of what we consider to be EVP (Electronic Voice Phenomena) captured on the camcorders audio. One from the corridor is included in the video that accompanies this report. The other, from the first ward/office we visited, is not included. This is because it was one word of ancient origin that is considered to be very offensive in modern society. However, both of these examples are very clear and audible. We can offer no other explanation other than these are surely genuine examples of EVP.
We have no idea why Ian’s camcorder suddenly stopped recording at the end of the first session, it worked perfectly well for the remainder of the night.
A theme from the evening was that a number of team members independently had momentary losses of balance. We find this intriguing as each time that team member was standing on flat level ground, not uneven debris, and was standing still. There would be no reason to loose one’s balance. We have no explanation for this.
The discovery of the blood on the floor of the final ward was enough to teach us that you have to be careful doing what we do and it is not necessarily the dead that you need to be mindful of. This is a message we wish to pass on to others. Never investigate alone, always investigate in a group, take a mobile phone and tell someone where you are going and what time you expect to be back.
We had a good night somewhere that we had not investigated before and got some good results, this is a place we do intend to return too.
As Ghost Connections conducts scientifically based investigations we do not publish information of a clairvoyant nature, however, this information is held on a separate database and may prove interesting when compared to other peoples experiences.

|Ghost Connections would like to point out that
they do not condone tresspassing and in this instance the building was open
to the elements.
We have no plans to return.
