Group: Sue, Claire, Martin, Bryn, Bob, Roger,
Sharon, Julie and Paul.
Written by Bob.
Commenced from near the Viking Ship and followed the track down onto
the disused access road leading to the former Hoverport site.
Once on the access road, Sue commented that she found the atmosphere
here to be threatening.
We entered the Seaweed Tunnel (pictured right) and made our way to the
Paul volunteered to go, alone, back to the centre of the tunnel.
Once in position, asking-out commenced, requesting that something be
done for Paul.
straight away, Paul reported a significant temperature drop and feeling
a cool breeze to his right-hand side although this could have been
natural air movement in the tunnel as it was moving in that direction.
Claire stumbled after seeing what she
described as a "purple, hazy form" just inside the entrance at the sea
end of the tunnel.
Sue, at the field entrance of the tunnel, also heard a sound as if in
response to one of our requests.
approximately one-third in from the field entrance and facing towards
the sea, felt something brush past her left-hand side, it could have
been a draught but it was moving in the opposite direction to the
natural air circulation.
The entire group moved to the centre of the tunnel.
An EVP session was commenced but later examination of this recording
revealed nothing unusual.
During this session, Sue and Julie witnessed a
light moving left to right at the sea end of the tunnel.
the EVP session ended, Julie and Bryn heard a sound which they compared
to someone clearing their throat - a sound not made by any of the group.
of the group heard three distinct footsteps or taps in an apparent
response to a request. One member remarked that it sounded like someone
walking in high-heels.
We requested a repeat and straight away three more were heard.
Sue felt compelled to turn around towards the
field entrance, she was getting a strong sensation that something was
We requested four taps or footsteps, none were
apparent but Sue thought she had heard a small growl.
We requested more, and two or three footsteps or taps were heard by
half the group.
the next request, Claire and Julie, who were towards the sea end of the
tunnel, heard two sets of two taps, and Sue picked-up on the name "Sam".
We made one final request for a loud noise before taking a break but
only one faint tap was heard by three of the group.
Sue was sensing a male presence who seemed to be
roughly just past the centre of the tunnel towards the field end.
None of these sounds heard by the group were
apparent on the audio recording.
Group members spread themselves out along the length of the tunnel.
asking-out, Bob who was roughly in the centre reported getting neck
pain on the left-hand side (towards the sea) and an intense headache in
the left temple.
Bryn moved next to Bob and experienced similar as
well as temporarily losing vision of the daylight from the sea end of
the tunnel in his left eye. Paul a little further away was also
experiencing neck pain on the left-hand side and a heavy pressure on
Roger, slightly further towards the field end, was unaffected.
and Bryn, simultaneously, reported seeing the outline/shadow of a
figure on the tunnel wall opposite, but there was no physical person in
the vicinity, who could have been responsible, when a torch was
Claire near the sea end, detected a breeze moving
in the opposite direction to the natural air current.
Sue sensed someone move past her and continue on
towards the field end of the tunnel.
Julie has a sudden urge to start laughing for no apparent reason.
Both her and Claire were aware of a breeze moving against the natural
Roger reported seeing lots of tiny static lights
towards the field end of the tunnel.
Bryn took a
photo (pictured right) which appeared to show a spiral around/over
Sharon. This was very clear on the camera's screen at the time although
it is not so evident once on a computer.
Bryn checked people's positions immediately after the photo,
and checked the tunnel walls for markings
that may have been responsible, but none were found.
members are outlined on the photo below, the two red spots are Paul's
glasses, the other faint red areas are uncertain and could be an
artifact from the camera.
Sue asked-out for the old man.
she did this, Bob took a photo and in the flash Sue reported seeing a
figure but later examination of this photo showed nothing unusual.
and Claire, approximately one-fifth of the way in from the sea end,
reported that they had simultaneously experienced itchy faces and necks.
Sue sensed someone was nearby.
Claire, now roughly in the centre of the tunnel, got the name "Jacob".
Another EVP session was commenced but later
examination of this recording revealed nothing unusual.
noticed what looked like a face next to Bryn, who was sat in the sea
end entrance, this was then also seen by Sue and Paul, although it was
accepted this was probably paradolia caused by the light and bush
Loud movement was heard by the entire group from the field end of the
Bob moved to this area but could find no physical reason for this sound.
picked-up on a young girl, aged five or six, who had long blonde hair.
She had no socks and was wearing a dress which came down to her knees
and was tied with a ribbon around her waist.
Claire was getting the impression that she used to
here but could not determine if she was actually hiding from someone
she was fearful of, or was just playing a game.
We left the tunnel.
We located on the disused access road to the former Hoverport.
Bryn sighted a possible UFO over land in the
direction of Ramsgate which shortly afterwards "blinked out".

We moved to the centre of what would have
been the Hoverport's car park.
Sue sensed "Harvard" and wondered if there was possibly an American
As we moved towards
where the terminal building had once stood, Claire thought she had seen
the lights of a cyclist heading towards us but there was no physical
person in the vicinity.
As we continued walking, Claire remarked that her legs felt very heavy,
like lead, and she felt nervous as though something was waiting for us.
Sue was sensing the activity of many
people going about their business.
Movement, from the nearby bushes, was heard by Sue, Claire and Bryn -
With nothing else being seen, heard or sensed, we headed back towards
the old access road.
As we walked up this road, Bob, at the back of the group, saw a brief
light between his feet on the road surface, similar to an intense red
LED, but examination of the road surface with a torch revealed no
explanation for this.
Pictured right - a light anomaly, probably an insect, looking up the
access road (this is a cropped image but remains at its full native
A minute later, Claire heard what sounded
like two people having a conversation, she got the impression that they
were either in, or carrying, a rowing boat (the tide was still out at
As we continued up the road, during an asking-out, Sue thought she had
heard faint voices from the direction of the former terminal building.
Claire and Bob both heard a tapping sound but from different directions.
Sue remarked that she didn't find this area as threatening, as earlier,
when walking in this direction.
We reached the top curve of the access road and then turned back.
Just after coming off the road and onto the track,
Claire thought she had heard someone speaking in front of Martin but
everyone was behind him.
End of walkabout.
