Thanet GhostWatch Property Investigation
of an undisclosed Kent property
Page 1 of 2.
Written by Bob.
Group: Sue, Sarah, Julie, Bob, Karl and Dan.
Monday 18th July, 2011.
Arrived at the location which was the unoccupied living accommodation
above a commercial premise.
Following a Risk Assessment, as required by our insurance, the investigation commenced.
there being no mains power to the living accommodation, EMF readings
were unusual in various areas. This was soon discovered to be due to a
man-made external source and therefore any readings within the
property were unreliable and were disregarded.
Living Room: air temperature 20.2°C.
Front Bedroom: air temperature 20.3°C.
Hallway: air temperature 20.6°C.
Stairwell: air temperature 20.7°C.
Kitchen: air temperature 20.6°C.
Bathroom: air temperature 20.7°C.
Toilet: air temperature 20.7°C.
Back Bedroom: air temperature 20.7°C.
Sarah remarked that she had felt "a bit strange" when in the back
In the living room, Sarah was picking-up on a man wearing an apron.
Julie wondered if this man was a baker as she had just 'smelt'
fresh-baked bread, she had also got the impression he was Jewish.
(Note: the current
business downstairs was closed at this time and is not concerned in the
preparation or sale of any foodstuffs).
Sue was sensing a child and a pram which she
suspected were probably residual energy. She described the pram as
having large wheels, was blue in colour and like a basket. She wasn't
sure if it was a small pram or a child's toy pram.
An EVP session was commenced but later examination of this recording
revealed nothing unusual.
During this EVP session, Julie picked-up on a
"Mandy" and "1967".
Sarah sensed a "Derek", and Sue got a "Harry" along with "1949".
Dan reported developing a headache and his chest/heart felt strange.
During an asking-out, Sarah and Dan heard a clock ticking but the only
clock was some distance away in the kitchen. Karl was closer to the
kitchen at this time and couldn't hear it from where he was stood.
Bob asked for a tap and Sue reported hearing one, so Bob asked for two
taps and two were evident to most of the group. Three taps were
requested but no response was heard.
None of these taps were captured on the camcorder's audio.
Sue sensed we had been joined by a male presence. She could 'see' him
dressed in black but could only make out his torso area, he had a small
black box which had either holes in it or rings on it. She wondered if
he had been an undertaker?
(Note: the current
business downstairs is not an Undertakers).
Karl picked-up on a small, old woman who had bad legs, she was hunched
over and walked with the aid of a stick. He felt she had spent a lot of
time looking out of the windows and hadn't been downstairs for a long
time as she had difficulty negotiating steps.
We moved into the back bedroom.
Air temperature: 21.9°C.
Bob, who was sat on the floor in the doorway with the camcorder
covering this room and hallway outside, could feel a natural slight
draught coming up the stairs and also one from the bedroom window.
Several of the group felt drawn to the hallway and
the top of the stairs.
Asking-out commenced including asking for the temperature to be dropped
or for a distinct sound.
Julie suspected that whatever was here was probably weak and didn't
have the energy to respond. Sue agreed and offered our energy.
Sue asked for her torch to be dimmed or turned off, there was no
response but Bob, who had been looking down the hallway, thought the
available natural light in the kitchen had briefly diminished.
Sue asked if they had used a walking stick and, if
they had, to make a sound with it. A thump was immediately evident to
most of the group but we were uncertain if this sound had come from
within the building or from outside.
Sue remarked that she found the wardrobe in this room "interesting".
Karl indicated he had previously seen a light moving across it on two
We asked for a knock on the wardrobe and shortly afterwards two faint
taps were heard by the entire group apart from Dan.
Another tap was requested and another was possibly heard by Karl.
None of these taps were evident on the camcorder's audio.
Dan was getting the impression of someone
crouching in the doorway next to Bob, at which point, Bob commented
that the slight draught coming up the stairs had just increased
Julie and Sue saw a light which Julie described as being thin and like
Dan felt that whatever was here had passed fairly
Air temperature: 21.6°C.
The group formed into a Circle with Bob observing
and Sue asking-out.
Bob, stood in the doorway, detected a brief odour
of rotten eggs wafting up the stairs and two minutes later a distinct
smell of fresh-baked bread.
Dan was beginning to sense things and Sarah felt the hood, on her
jacket, was being tugged.
Sue requested her hood be tugged again and Sarah reported the sensation
of it moving but no movement was evident on the video recording.
