Thanet GhostWatch Walkabout Report
Kingsgate Bay - Photo: Bryn
Thursday 28th June, 2012.
Group: Sue, Martin, Claire, Bryn, Dawn, Sarah and Bob.
Written by Bob.
We met on the cliff-top and made our way along and down into St. Bartholomew's Gap (pictured right).
Apparently so-named as it opened up during an earth tremor which occurred on St. Bartholomew's Day.
half way down, Sarah was picking-up on a woman in a long skirt which
was either dirty, or brown in colour, she was aged 26 - 30 years-old.
Bryn described the atmosphere here as being "heavy" - possibly due to infra-sound, Bob suggested.
Dawn, who had remained
near the top with Sue, had also sensed a woman in a long dress but she
couldn't 'see' a colour, although it was very ragged.
Both had also picked-up on a man who had been injured.
also felt "the old man with the lantern" was still present, he had
followed this woman and the other man down the gap towards the beach.
As we left the gap, Dawn thought she had heard Sue whispering but she had been silent at this point.
We located on Kingsgate Bay between the beach huts above and the shoreline.
Sarah heard two men having a conversation.
The group were all together at this time but no one else heard this.
We moved to the other end of the bay.
felt this end of the bay was more active, it seemed to begin at roughly
the centre of the beach and gradually increased as one moved to the far
end, where we were now stood.
we made our way up the steps to the cliff-top, Dawn remarked that she
was not keen on the area of cliff to the left of these steps.
We returned to St. Bartholomew's Gap.

Approximately halfway down, Dawn made it clear that she did not like this area.
Sue agreed but felt it was not as bad as it had been on previous visits.
the bottom of the gap, just before the beach, an EVP session was
commenced but later examination of this recording revealed nothing
Sue and Dawn sensed something was present but couldn't be any more specific at this time.
remained in the gap, just before the steep slope, whilst the rest of
the group went down onto the beach and into the first cave.
In the cave an EVP session was commenced.
During this session, Bryn reported hearing faint voices and Sarah picked-up on the name "Jonathan".
requested the sound of footsteps (as on previous investigations here)
and what sounded like dragging footsteps, on the hard wet sand outside
the cave, were heard by most of the group.
Claire heard a small bell ring and was also picking-up on somebody with a head injury.
was getting "Auckland" or "Oakland" or something similar and was also
sensing someone with a pain between the top of their rib cage and
Later examination of various audio recordings revealed
nothing unusual and none of the sounds heard by group members were
In the back of
the cave, Claire was picking-up on a man who was hiding from three
others who were wearing white shirts and leather waistcoats (light
brown/tan colour) which were secured by leather ties in place of
Claire felt one of these three had hit their terrified
victim over the head with a large rock, probably a flint which was
larger than their hand.
She felt this had occurred in the late 1700's.
We rejoined Sue and Dawn in St. Bartholomew's Gap where, fifteen minutes earlier, they had heard a woman scream.
This had not been apparent to those on the beach or in the cave.
and Dawn remarked that after we had gone down onto the beach, the area
they were in had gone flat as though what ever had been there had
followed us down onto the beach.
Sue did ask-out and request that something be done for those on the beach.
Sue felt the presence had now returned with the group from the beach.
We left the gap and returned to the cliff-top, following the footpath in the direction of Botany Bay.
Pictured right - a possible UFO sighting which appeared to be some distance out to sea off of Margate.
This is a cropped image but is at its full native resolution.
