The Dolphin Pub

dolphin coverHello my lovelies, It’s me Kelly !

So, What can I tell you about the Dolphin… First of all it’s a really hard place to find especially when you’ve just passed your driving test a week before lol! There is a running joke about my car(s) and this place is where it all stems from. You may have seen posts on my social media pages where other paranormal investigators either have to jump start my car(s), push it up hills or even get stuck with me over night. On this occasion my car was fine until I got 5 minutes away from the venue , like seriously I was in the same road! My car suddenly stopped in mid driving, locking every thing down and as I drive an automatic jump starting it is really hard and it was even more annoying as my car then was a BMW and the battery is in the boot!

So here I was in a very narrow alley with a car wanting to go behind me and one in front of me etc. I was lucky enough that These two car owners were very nice and helped me out with directions and they jumped start my car. I was approached by a young man wearing sunglasses, bleach blonde hair and the biggest, puffiest, longest florescent orange jacket with a furry hood I had ever seen. He told me that should follow him and that he can drive me were I want to go… I declined his offer although tempting lol (it wasn’t!  I’ve seen way to many scary movies, I know how this ends lol).  I finally parked up in the car park and began making my way to the venue when I bumped into an elderly couple, who told me that they had an experience in the dolphin. They told me that the 8 ball started spinning once by itself and they had witnessed together, a glass shattering of its own accord! This only fueled my intensity to investigate the dolphin.  I could see the venue in front of me so I headed towards it. 

When I walked into the venue you could see a lot of collectibles which to me felt like they all carried some type of energy in one form or another. I was personally drawn to the top left corner of the bar and was particularly interested in the war memorabilia and the union jack flag it was upon. Just down from this section, was another section that held Titanic Memorabilia and seating area. This area to me seemed active but I will have to wait and see. Through out the Pub there were collections and antiques all over the walls. It had a very ye olde pub feel which is indubitably could be penting up the energy in the venue and well as providing that creepy-es vibe. It was time for a quick presentation from Barri and the other members of GPS, followed by a tour of the venue.

From the initial walk round I felt that room 7 and the bar area would prove to be the most active throughout the night. Now from this walk through I had a pain on my right side of my jaw up my face and behind my eye. And it kept coming and going all through the night I’ve never had this before accept at another venue quite recently called the ‘Goodwich village hall’. Now I have come to associate this feeling with a certain type of entity which I will explain later.

We split into teams I was with Phil and a few other guests and we explored the cellars first. Down in the cellar were the pumps, gas cylinders, kegs and more antiques. The ceiling was low and had a few rooms leading off a corridor and the old cellar doors that lead into the street. We began by calling out in the cellar asking for what ever was there to come and communicate with us. As we were calling out we heard banging coming from above us. We knew that Barri and his guests were investigating on the 1st and 2nd floor in the rooms, so there couldn’t be any possible noise coming from above us in the bar area! There was a particular room that lead off the corridor that gave me the creeps upon saying this to Phil we heard taps on the pipes above us, we called out asking if that was an entity trying to communicate with us and we received more bangs above us. We then heard what sounded like a woman mumbling, but sadly the Dictaphone didn’t pick this up. We continued to call out and listened patiently. The taps and bangs were getting louder and louder until everything went deathly silent. Still listening intently we stood still in the dark cellar staring down the corridor, then we heard this almighty hiss come from behind us! I jumped out of my skin along with a couple of guests. Only to realize it was one of the soda pumps letting out excess gas. This gave us a good giggle for a while.

We headed upstairs into the bar area and this is where it got really weird! At this point I put down my equipment and just soaked up the moment. I did however leave my Dictaphone recording throughout the whole session. Sadly my Dictaphone has since gone missing along with all my EVP’s I’ve collected over the years so I cannot let you hear the recordings! But I believe Phil was rolling on his. The team sat patiently in pitch blackness in the bar area near the pool table whilst me and Phil were opposite the bar itself . I had this pain in my tooth and side of my face (I don’t suffer with tooth pain mind) and I felt something run past me and kind of scatter up onto my shoulder. I then hear something come from behind the bar area that myself and Phil both heard saying ” What do you wannnnnnt” in really scowly and demanding way. We then hear clinks coming from where we heard the voice and what sounded like cutlery moving. We both jumped up and looked over the bar and of course we see nothing there! We then sit down in the titanic area where I sat in a leather chair, behind a table, on my left was a old pool table that was covered with a cloth and Then to the right of me was a Christmas tree. I called out for the entity to make a noise and within seconds of saying this my chair made a noise like someone ran their hand down the leather chair. The rest of the group then proceeded to ask for things to happen. In doing so, this noise kept happening in a response way. The whole time we were calling out, I could feel something gripping tighter and tighter around the bottom of my legs. I could feel what can only be described as claws digging into my calf’s, it felt like something was trying to pull me down, but yet i remained in the same position. These noises began to get louder and one of the guests pointed out that the Christmas tree to my right had a decoration that was swinging and looked like it was turning around. It was a very uneasy feeling for myself at this point as I felt someone or something did not want me there in that seat…

In the 1st and 2nd floors were lots of rooms which the land lady rents out to the public to stay. During the break I was very compelled to go to room 7 around 1am ish. I went on a little walk to take some photos and I went into room 7 with a member of LPI, as we got into the room, I turned and said that I didn’t like the cupboard in the corner and I felt quite sad, we heard a faint scream and some knocks but it could be coming from anyone as we were on break. But a few seconds later we hear a really loud moan between us both. He grabbed the emf reader out and I grab my camera and start filming… You can see throughout the video there’s intelligent responses made through the emf reader. The audio of the video has a few pops and fizz now and then and a faint sentence/song can be heard near the beginning of the video. Most of the bangs are from myself moving around as floorboards were creaky. Do you spot anything else? What do you think of this footage?

A little further in the night myself and Beka tried an experiment using dousing rods. When we were in room 7 we had a mixture of energy to begin with we believed we were talking to a young girl,then an older woman possibly the mother and then a very cheeky character. We got direct responses and it revealed some amazing evidence which I will later research! I have never had such a connection with something I couldn’t see before and I seriously had to pry myself away from the venue as I probably would have stayed there if I could. Have a look at the footage to see what happened.

 

Hatton Court Hotel part 2

hatton 2 coverI returned to the Hatton Hall and I was met with an abundance of activity. As I set foot into the building my mind began swimming. I felt as though I had stepped into another time zone where I could feel the previous owner live out their day to day lives.

I started in the basement along with Andy from @gpsparanormal. We set up some equipment such as emf reader, Rem pod and the ovious. I had recently downloaded a version of the ovious on my tablet and I wanted to conduct an little experiment to see whether the app would indeed mimic the ovious. We stood in the basement and I received the word “behind” via the app what was particularly interesting the ovious actually said the word “her” at the same time. A few moments went by and I noticed that the room began to darken. I felt hands upon my shoulders and it almost seemed that a body shape appeared on my right hand side. Something leaned into my peripheral vision and I heard a whisper. I ignored it first of all and I assumed that it was my eyes adjusting to the lighting and I thought another team member had spoken. I began to feel uneasy. I could see this mass engulfing the light beside me and I felt a breath upon my check and I heard a voice saying “what are you doing?”

This did intern send a shiver down my spine and I felt extremely threatened in the basement. I then left the basement and took a breather outside. I explained to Andy what had happened.

Later in the evening myself and Phil from @gpsparanormal sat in a large hall. Phil has set up a grid light and brought an array of equipment. Phil sat on the window ledge and called out asking if there was anyone who wanted to talk to us. Behind Phil there came a big bang on the window. Phil ran rather quickly away from the window. To clarify the window was looking out on a small court yard which there was no entrance we could use to get out there as the doors were locked. We then broke for a break. As I went to get myself a cuppa I wiped the table and began talking to a guest who had joined us for the evening. We were chatting away about experience’s we’ve encountered in our lives regarding the paranormal. As we were chatting I went to put my spoon in the cup and the cup physically moved and turned. I saw this happen with my own eyes.

Ancient Ram inn part 2

Ancient Ram Inn – Gloucestershire

I had been eagerly awaiting to return to this venue and finally, I was able to come back to the place that started my love of paranormal investigating. It’s been 3 years since I was last here and in these 3 years a lot has happened. When I came here last time it was my first investigation and I can honestly say that I didn’t really know what to expect, but I wasn’t disappointed and This time I wouldn’t be disappointed either!

1780866_787698577925166_2115380477_nI returned with @barrighai and his team @gpsparanormal. I arrived and was greeted by Barri, Phil and Andy from @gpsparanormal. We spoke about previous investigations we had all been on recently and exchanged stories of experiences we had last time at the Ram. We waited for the other guests to arrive this included @irishparanormal investigations.

Barri was very excited as he had set up the big screen in the main area (where the late and great Mr humpfreys used  to sleep) so we could watch his programme #help!myhouseishaunted before we started our investigation at the Ram. I have to admit this was awesome, when all the guests arrived we watched the programme.

I snapped a couple of photos and did some audio recordings whilst we were all engrossed.  During the show we all heard a voice of a woman coming from the old bar area. It was odd as we all heard it clear as day and we were all sat in the same room and we’re quiet. We checked our dicta phones, cameras to see if any thing had been captured. As I mentioned earlier I had snapped some photos ,on further inspection I have noticed a reflection of a woman in one of the frames at the back of the room. It looks to me that it’s someone in a military uniform…what do you think?

We split up into groups,  I was with Barri, Andy and 3 other guests. We headed into the witches room. (Let me explain who was where in the room as this is quite vital to the next part i tell you). So, I sat on one of the chairs at the table on the right, Andy was sat on the right by fireplace, One guest was sat opposite me at the table, Two guests were sat at the end of the bed by the wardrobe and Barri was sat opposite me on the bed.

I remember getting an over whelming feeling that the lady who supposedly haunts that room, wasn’t a witch at all! As I mention this a cat ball rolled out from under the bed, through Barri’s legs and rolled towards me. Everybody was accounted for, no one brought cat balls .

On further inspection the bed Barri was sat on,  didn’t have any space underneath for the cat ball to roll from . As it was held up by blocks that covered all possible spaces, I cannot explain how this happened!

56852815_522788171462123_7240655278633385984_nWe then headed down stairs for break after break I Joined Andy in a table tipping session. When I joined the table it wasn’t really moving but when I placed my hands on the table it seemed to rock left to right. The table was very hard to move as it was quite stable so i cannot actually explain how this movement happened! I left the table and stood on the opposite side of the room which then the REM pod went off uncontrollably- I managed to capture this on video, have a look below.

After this we headed into the bar area to conduct communication with whatever was there. I setup a locked off camera and a torch in the room we were conducting a table tipping session. I made sure that No body was in that room or entered the room, however in the video I shot, the Torch dimmed for a little while then returned to normal as-well as this, you can hear deep growls throughout the video (yes that is us you can hear us in the background). Have a look for yourself -video below

After this We took a Break, I popped upstairs to the toilet , however i was unaware that I was only one in building! Until Barri shouts up to me to turn the lights off on my way down. I’m not gonna lie I was filled with fear at this moment as I thought someone was stood outside the bathroom door waiting for me to finish! The floorboards even creaked next to the door! Now for those of you who have been to the Ramm you know where this toilet is situated- Those of you who haven’t been here: This toilet is directly opposite the bishops room and you have to walk down a narrow hallway passed the witches room, down the rickety stairs, through the garage, then the bar then into the main room and finally through the kitchen bit then your outside! It’s quite a scary thought turning off all those lights and heading downstairs by yourself! But never the less, I built up my courage and went and turned off all the lights! When I got to the witches room I realised that the loft light was on, So I walked up those stairs to turn the light off and as I walked up there was a very cold blast of air was travelling towards me and I thought I saw something in the corner of my eye. I turned the light off and pretty much ran all the way down and through the building – It was creepy YO!
