Thanet GhostWatch Walkabout Report

Path through the
Reserve - Photo: Bob
Saturday 26th November, 2011.
Written by Bob.
Group: Sarah, Bryn, Bob, Claire, Julie and Karl.
For some time we had wanted to carry out an
investigation here but being sited next to a main road with all the
associated traffic noise and lights it is not ideal. However, thanks to
the road being temporarily closed it now meant noise and light
pollution were no longer a problem.
Group assembled next to the Viking Ship before walking up to the Nature
We stopped at the first picnic bench and Karl's K2 Meter was placed on
top after ensuring all mobile phones were completely off.
The K2 Meter briefly indicated a reading.
Claire and Bryn both reported that their brand new
camera batteries had failed.
Claire heard a "whining" type sound.
An EVP session was commenced but later examination of this recording
revealed nothing unusual.
During this session, Sarah got the name "Darren".
Sarah was sensing that there was something present but couldn't be more
Julie and Karl felt that whatever was here was
very old, possibly Roman.
Karl and Bryn heard what sounded like two people talking from the
direction of the marshes.
The K2 Meter indicated a maximum reading which lasted approximately
Claire, over by the bushes, described that area as
not feeling comfortable.
Sarah, at the bench, heard an "Err" sound, as though it was right in
Claire returned from the bushes and added that the area also felt sad.
Julie, at the bushes, agreed it felt sad, she was also picking-up on a
lonely woman along with and old-fashioned scent like Lily of the Valley
rather than a woodland-type odour normally associated with bushes.
With only female group members sitting around the bench, it was felt to
Clare reported her face was feeling very hot as though she was next to
Sarah also felt warm on one side of her face.
The K2 Meter activated again, maximum reading which lasted around two -
A thud on the ground was also heard.
Claire thought she saw a white flash in the bushes.
Julie described this area as feeling "edgy" to
which Sarah and Claire agreed.
We moved on.
As we entered the car park, Bryn thought he saw at least two figures at
the far end, they seemed to be moving and obscuring some signs - no
physical persons were in the vicinity.
Now at the far end of the car park, we stopped for a break before
continuing along the path towards the former power station.
Julie reported hearing several distinct footsteps on gravel despite the
entire group being stationary at the time.
As we neared the power station, the entire group saw a pair of
yellow-orange eyes in the torchlight, a short distance behind us on the
path, approximately three feet above the ground. These were visible for a few seconds before moving into the bushes, on the
sea side of the path, and disappearing from view.
Was this a big cat sighting? It was too tall to have been a fox.
The previous week, a big cat had been reported not too far away,
between Sandwich and Deal.
Pictured right - a video-still which appears
to possibly show very faint "eyes" in the top right-hand corner. This was after
whatever it was had moved off the path and into the bushes.
We headed back, following the same route.
Despite looking in the bushes, from the path, we could not see what had
been responsible for "the eyes".
As we exited the car park, Claire reported hearing a "jangling" type
sound, similar to a dog-walker using a chain but, as far as we could
tell, there was no one else around.
A minute later, Julie heard what sounded like a
man laughing but no one else in the group heard this.
We returned to the first picnic bench and, as before, the K2 Meter was
placed on top.
All mobile phones were still turned off.
Sarah and Karl saw a "white misty ball", about the size of a ping-pong
ball, moving about a foot off the ground. Karl witnessed it move in one
direction and then back but Sarah only saw it move one way.
Bryn detected a burning odour, at the same time Julie took a photo
appearing to show mist/smoke, photos before and after were clear.
As Karl asked-out, Claire picked-up on a name, possibly "Robert".
An EVP session was commenced but later examination
of this recording revealed nothing unusual.
During this, Sarah reported a burning sensation to her feet.
Sarah saw movement out-of-the-corner-of-her-eye.
Claire and Julie reported hearing strange sounds from the direction of

four - five seconds.
(orientation of the meter - at 1 o'clock, facing towards the road).
Claire suspected the name "Robert" she picked-up on earlier was more
likely to have been “robber”, possibly referring to a highwayman?
Bryn reported seeing a fast moving light from the direction of the
road, he doubted it had been a car as it was moving too fast - fast
enough to leave a light trail.
Sarah witnessed one side of Julie's face
change into that of an "old hag".
Bryn had a strange experience, which he described as "everything had
shifted", it was as though this was his first time here despite having
been here a few hours earlier.
Julie detected an apple-type odour.
Arrived back at the Viking Ship.
End of Walkabout.
