This April 09, the team visited Landguard Fort for another big investigation. Armed
with our arsenal of “ghost hunting” equipment; night vision, sound recorders, electromagnetic
readers and communication devices, we explored the many dark and chilling corners
of the fort.
It was already dark when we arrived at the fort and by then the warmth of the day
had turned into a very cold starry night. The location was a plethora of sound effects
that we could rationally debunk; the soldiers marching (the flapping flag against
its post), the wind whistling through the tunnels, loose windows, flimsy sign boards
and doors knocking against solid frames and walls and external sounds from the nearby
dock workers carried on the icy sea breeze. We had to sift through these sounds whilst
in the open to hear the more haunting sounds from immediate areas.
After a brief history lesson while the lights were still on we asked for the lights to be switched off and split up into small teams to see what
we could experience.
At regular intervals we would meet up to both warm up and update each other in the
staff room and also refuel on the o-so important snacks (we can’t experience the
paranormal on empty stomachs!) and on a couple occasions we would collaborate for
Ouija sessions in chosen locations.
Of course, we had our moments of fun-filled terror in the darkness, however our focus
was on collecting paranormal experiences and information. The visit on the whole
was a great experience if not the coldest of locations to date, which could be attributed
to the fact that we were surrounded by the sea on the three sides or the abundance
of ghostly activity. You decide.
