Marc and the Paranormal Radio Show Team

After my usual experience with the ever so slightly annoying M25 motorway I finally arrived at Fort Horsted and only a few minutes late, which wasn’t bad going considering the Sat Nav had told me I would be at least thirty minutes late!

The Main Tunnel

As usual the HQ for the evenings investigation was Room 51 and once we had all settled in; generally this means checking, comparing your equipment with others and grabbing that all important first cup of coffee, we received a brief talk on the location. These days an introduction talk at a location is somewhat becoming the normality, especially with the high focus on health and safety. However I have to admit the Fort Horsted ‘talk’ has become hands down, one of the most entertaining ones I have experienced to date. We laughed, we learnt and all understood the serious nature of keeping safe thanks to Paul’s excellent delivery and clear understanding of comedy.

Fort Horsted – Emergency Plan

We all started our evening knowing categorically that the biscuits, may contain biscuits! Plus an old slightly derelict Fort may contain trip hazards in the dark. I wonder if I could incorporate this approach into my day jobs manual handling talk?

Paul also showed us a photograph taken by one team at the Fort which included a spooky extra, though difficult to say for sure how paranormal it was, the picture was certainly interesting. 

Following Paul, tough act to follow, the Paranormal Radio Show Team advised us on how the investigation would be approached. Which basically was along the concept of a few main areas that we had access to for the night; Room 10 area, Room 36 area, Casement 26 and Room 14 area. 

The team for the night was made up of a few people from different teams, which in all honesty is fast becoming my favourite way to investigate purely because it encourages excellent cooperation between more in the field. Something that many of you know is close to my heart, but this isn’t a soap box moment, so lets move quickly on. 

There was of course Medium Marc Richardson and the Paranormal Radio Show Team, Mel, Lucy and Loz too. Then there was the GCUK Team made up of Rachael, Amanda, Danielle and Stuart. There was also Paddy, Sue, Vicky, Jacqueline and Nicola. I would just like to say for all those I had met previously, it was great to see you again. For those that I met for the first time, as ever its fantastic to make to new contacts within the field. 

So without further a do, we all hit the Fort for a walk around with Marc. 

Location Tour with the Whole Team

We truly began our nights investigation with a walk around as a whole team to view the main areas available to us. 

This covered the Room 10 area and those spiders that often get a mention. In fact during my last visit back in March with Sage Paranormal’s D-Day Tour and Brian J Cano, the little spiders were a tad elusive. However this time around they were out in force and some were positioned in some places which you felt you needed to keep an eye on. Something which is a little difficult when its so dark you can’t see your hand in front of your face. 

That said these little creatures are actually really amazing and in this environment almost beautiful in a way. Granted their little bodies glistened in the light like the creature from the Aliens movie, but they captured our attention for a little while that’s for sure. Sometimes when you visit so many historic locations in search of ghosts and spirits, you miss what’s living there and the very point of paranormal investigaiton is to seek out the answer to the survival hypothesis, but its like that the answer equally lies in life itself. 

We moved on from Room 10 and across to Room 36 and its adjacent tunnel. Room 36 was again another pitch black location, but this one had a table and chairs setup in it and has been a good location for seance and glass work in the past. Marc advised that the tunnel ajacent to Room 36 had a good energy and he heard a voice and whistling. An area which should be good later on. 

Www.ashleyknibb.com
Casement 26

Next stop was Casement 26, which meant a long decent under the moat I believe. Just to place it into perspective, if you had to walk up and down these steps on a regular basis then you could certainly cancel your Gym membership. During our visit to Casement 26 Marc picked up on a number of things in the area. A couple of the team managed to take a few interesting pictures too. My ‘on the fly’ analysis of the photos make me believe that one may have been slight digitisation when the photo was taken and the other possibly a close up of dust or moisture in the air. However this was my quick look at the photos and as ever there could be other explanations for these. After all at the point when one photo was taken, Tommy (Marc’s spirit guide) was advising when to take the photo. Sometimes you have to zoom out and analyse the bigger picture, so to speak. 

Www.ashleyknibb.com
The Stairs to Casement 26

In one of the rooms in Casement 26 we all held hands in a circle and Marc attempted to communicate with the localised spirits. There were a couple of interesting points during this session; one being the distinctive sound of footsteps (boots) and the other was the fact that we all turned and looked at the door at the same time for no reason. 

Lastly after another long trek up and down the steps from Casement 26, we headed down the tunnel to the area near Room 14. At this point most of the group headed upstairs to the room. As they did I asked Mark what he had picked up on here, which he replied with a description similar to that which I heard during my last visit. These cross-overs always interest me. 

Finally we headed back for a break, well deserved and to re-group before heading out on our first vigils. 

Room 36 and Tunnel

Our first vigil of the night took us back to Room 36 and the adjacent tunnel. We all started off in the room, with most of the team sat around the table attempting to communicate to spirits using glass divination. However at the time this didn’t seem to be working, so the group attempted a little table tipping instead. 

During the most of this Marc, Mel and Lucy were with us, but after a while they went to investigate the nearby tunnel. 

The table tipping didn’t appear to actuate into much, although a few of the group believed they felt the table was kind of vibrating in a way. This was something I equally felt albeit extremely lightly. 

Www.ashleyknibb.com
THe Tunnels of Fort Hosted

Whilst Marc, Mel and Lucy were off in the tunnel they had three items thrown at them; a tea light candle, small stone and what looked like a piece of ceremic. When they viewed these items through their phone camera FLIR attachment, the items all appeared to be as hot as a human hand. I believe that Lucy may have even mentioned that one of the objects might have been warm when she first touched it. We later looked at this and sure enough all three objects appeared to show as warm on the FLIR, but we soon realised a possible problem with this. Something I am sure I have heard mentioned previously and that’s the fact that often more shiny objects can reflect the FLIR giving off a false reading. We tested this on all these objects which sure enough all appeared warm on the FLIR, but were cool to touch. 

This would become the subject of a slight debate between Lucy and I for the evening. This by the way is a good thing, after all we should question everything, but equally all theory must have supporting evidence. So, we set about looking at this problem. My theory was that reflective items like these, mirrors and coins would indeed show as warm when they weren’t. However I would have to prove this. Love a challenge. 

Before heading back we all spent a little time in the tunnel and Marc was picking up on a voice near by, which at one point another team member believed they heard something too. What was very evident and would make it difficult to conduct audio experiments there was how you could literally talk at one end of the tunnel and it would be echoed exactly at the other end. Often a few were caught out by this believing that they heard a voice. 

As the rest of the group headed back Lucy advised me that she had seen a large fluctuation at the entrance of the tunnel on the KII meter there earlier. We took a look with my MEL Meter, but their wasn’t any activity at the time. Once again we fired up another debate, this time regarding how mobile phone checking with the nearest towers can make the KII flicker. However its highly possible that any nearby phones were in flight mode or too far away to interact with the KII. This also appeared to occur a couple of times on the way back to our HQ too, so although my explanation is relevant, it may not be the cause on this occasion. These fluctuations remain unexplained, but only because under those circumstances at that time I couldn’t 100% prove my phone theory as the cause. Sometimes science does hold an explanation, but if we cant equally utilise that explanation to prove the paranormal event, then we must keep looking. 

Room 10

After a good break the whole group headed across to Room 10, the Spider nest! After we admired the spiders we all stood in a circle in one of the rooms on the right. With all the lights out this area was pitch black and could be a little unnerving. 

In fact it wasn’t long before many of the group were experiencing something or picking up something. Once again proof that sensory deprivation may indeed heighten our psychical ability. 

Even I had the feeling that there were a few additional energies with us in that little room. At one point a ten pence piece appeared to be thrown into the circle too. This would give us four thrown objects or apports for the night, which is a great effort. 

As the session moved forward the attention seemed focused around where Rachael was stood. Some even believed they heard a growl at times. In order to return some balance and also becloser to the action Marc moved over to stand next to Rachael. 

Following this the energy appeared to move around the circle, with a couple us seeing shadow movement at one end of the circle when Mel was using the FLIR. However towards the end of the vigil the energy moved towards me. At this point Paddy told the group that he could see a kind of blue light coming from me. What Paddy didn’t know was when he said this I was actually getting random words in my head. This then changed to a weird feeling almost like pins and needles down one side of my face, literally as I began to feel this and was about to mention it, Marc asked about it! Now that’s pretty damn paranormal right? 

Question then becomes; did Marc and Paddy both telepathically understand what was occuring to me or did spirit communicate it to them. These are the questions that keep me up at night. Although telepathic interaction is the most likely logical explanation, its still as unproven as mediumship according to mainstream science. Certainly the possibility of experimentation ahead on this one. 

Room 14

We then headed directly to Room 14, climbing the stairs which are very steep by the way. This was also where we were treated by the Batman. Okay it was a little bat just hanging around as they do. Again though it drew our attention briefly away from the search for those that have passed back to the living. Many of us took photos of the little guy, but apparently he’s not too keen on having he’s temperature taken by an IR thermometer. As he flew off, both Loz and I decided to do ski impressions honest! It was purely coincidental and not because we thought a bat might suddenly attack us. 

Www.ashleyknibb.com
The Batman

So, with the bat out of the picture we attempted a little table tipping using Paddy’s purpose build table. It was a little slow going, but after a while the table lifted on one side ever so slightly. Nothing like the Royal Oak, where a table walked out of the door on me once, clearly something I said, but still interesting. 

After this the room seemed a little dead, pardon the pun. So we decided to call it a night and regroup back at our HQ before heading home. 

Round Up

All in all this was a great investigation, with some fantastic people at a location that is heading up my favourites list at dramatic speed. Somewhere I would like to investigate again for certain. 

The team were great too, with an excellent mix of individuals that were a pleasure to investigate with. 

The investigation certainly delivered some interesting activity, both physical and psychical too. It’s always good when you can leave somewhere with your own unexplained personal experience too. Although I have a funny feeling I wasn’t quite alone in that respect when leaving Fort Horsted. 

Oh yes, that FLIR debate with Lucy. Well in order to try and prove the theory it was suggested we left a fifty pence coin on the concrete floor in the main tunnel whilst on our final couple of vigils. When we returned sure enough the coin showed as warm on the FLIR. It was of course not warm at all and certainly not the same temperature as say our hands. We also used an IR thermometer to measure the floor temp and that of the coin (on and off the floor). They matched. This in my mind proves the theory that objects with a smooth or reflective surface are likely to bounce back causing false measurement. Debunked Lucy! 

If you have any info on the FLIR attachments for smartphones regarding this, please feel free to share. 

Still Fort Horsted was an excellent location to investigate and once again I was lucky to investigate with some great people, thank you all.

Fort Horsted with Brian J Cano and Sage Paranormal – The D-Day Tour

Www.sageparanormal.co.uk
Sage Paranormal’s D-Day Tour with Brian J Cano

The D-Day Tour with Brian J Cano

This exclusive tour of three amazing haunted locations was put together by Sage Paranormal who worked extremely hard to book these locations and also manage to get Brian J Cano from across the pond into the UK. I think what’s also really important to note here is that given the locations, the presence of Brian J Cano and that there were limited numbers; for the price this was excellent value. Often with events such as these the numbers can be upwards of thirty guests attending and this in my opinion can simply ruin a good ghost hunt. Too many numbers equals too much location contamination and not enough of the hosts and special guests to go around.

Virtual hat tip to MJ Dickson and the Sage Paranormal team for putting together such a good package for a reasonable price.

Also, big thank you to Brian J Cano for coming over to the UK and making this such a unique event.

As you can see from the Sage Paranormal advert, the tour hit three amazing locations from the 3rd March to 8th March. Starting with Fort Horsted in Kent, then one of my favourites The Explosions Museum in Gosport and finishing up at Fort Widley in Portsmouth. Now that I have been to all three locations I can happily state that they are each well worth a visit, from a historical point of view and not just because they are all pretty cool. The Explosions Museum has also been a location I’ve returned to and never come away disappointed. The other two were equally interesting and I would certainly return at some point.

Fort Horsted Tour

I actually missed the first part of the night at Fort Horsted as I was stuck on the old M25 motorway, the joys of travelling. During this time I believe the guys at the Fort and Sage Paranormal kicked off with the standard Health and Safety talks, which is always good to know. It’s always good to protect yourself at these old locations and I am not talking about demons (Elizabeth), there’s plenty of hazards to be wary of. Suffice to say good job for covering this off.

Fort Horsted Entrance

Next up was a brief tour of the Fort, I say brief that’s a slight understatement given the size of the place.

www.ashleyknibb.com
Map of Fort Horsted

The tour took us out of the HQ room for the night, which is room 52 on the map. We headed up the ramp towards S3 and Zone 3 to look at room 10 along the far tunnel. Without a light on these rooms were pretty much pitch black. We then headed back towards the HQ then along the main tunnel towards Zone 4 of the Fort where we explored a few of the rooms along that tunnel. In particular being room 14 on the map I think. Then we headed back down the same tunnel towards Zone 5 and room 36 at the far end. As the rest of the group headed back to HQ, six of us made the climb down and up the stairs to room 35. Within this room were some interesting pieces of graffiti, some of which date back to the war. I think it’s also important to note that there were obviously some quite talented artists back then too.

Following this the small group, feeling a little like we had been to the gym for a full on work out (yes that many stairs) headed back to our HQ and the rest of the group.

Full Team EVP Session in the HQ

Once we had recovered from the tour and warmed up a little thanks to (Grandma) the hot water machine, we sat around the table to attempt an EVP session. What I found interesting was that Brian first took us through a kind of back story, explaining the common approach to EVP’s and how as investigators we often become a little too clinical in our approach. We ask questions, leave pauses and hope for responses. However we often forget to approach from the human perspective, which in this instance was the lesson for the group.  So, throw out what you, poor yourself a drink and have a relaxed chat with the probable spirits. Well sort of anyways. Oddly I do see the value in this approach too, as I have noticed that emotional connection can often increase activity.

www.ashleyknibb.com
Quick break at our HQ

As the group was relatively large the simplest approach to this EVP session would be to go around the table and ask one question each, leave a brief pause before the next. However rather than the clinical and morbid questions usually heard we would try to connect a little more on a one to one level.

It took a little while to get around the group, but as we did so we did become aware of a few odd noises we couldn’t place to begin with. Then as we got further around the table those at MJ’s and Elizabeth’s end of the table believed they saw movement outside the rooms door. Brian and Elizabeth setup REMPod on a chair which would be in Elizabeth’s line of sight. Once this was setup Brian continued with the questions.

Once this had been completed Brian used a loud-speaker to run through the EVP session and listen for any anomalies. Interestingly there were a few that we noted, but nothing that I would class as a crystal clear (Class A) EVP, but certainly interesting enough to mention. These ranged from some obvious sounds that seemed to fit when questions were asked to some possible responses that some of the group recognised as words.

Psychic Projection EVP Experiment

Next up Brian decided to give a psychic projection EVP experiment a go in our HQ room before we headed out into the rest of the Fort.

So, the basics for this experiment was to utilise the collective psychic ability of the group to project a key word onto a digital voice recorder, in this case Brian J Cano’s which was on the table in front of him. In order to do this we first picked a key word. Now as Brian, MJ, Liz and Elizabeth had been chatting about the Lord of the Rings for the last few days a good choice seemed to be the word ‘Gollum’. Just for the record, check out Liz’s impression of Gollum.

With the word picked, Brian set the time limit for sixty seconds and reminded us on this occasion we were not going to tag anything just focus on projecting the word ‘Gollum’ onto Brian’s digital voice recorder.

As we began the sixty seconds, MJ listened live on her device and we all sat in silence for sixty seconds. This seems like a great time to mention relativity, mainly as the sixty seconds seemed like a lifetime. It was an interesting sixty seconds that’s for sure. Also towards the end of it I noticed MJ smile as listened live to her device, which gave me a great feeling about this experiment.

Brian reviewed the sixty seconds of the experiment straight away using the speaker. As we listened, some of the group believed they heard the key word around the half way mark. There were a couple of noises, but unfortunately I couldn’t hear the word ‘Gollum’. However as we hit the fifty-second something mark pretty much the whole group agreed that the word could be heard.

This poses a very interesting question; when we conduct EVP experiments, are we actually picking up spiritual communication or could we be projecting information onto the device ourselves?

Whilst we pondered this philosophical (#paralosophical) question over a cuppa thanks to Grandma we also prepared for the first vigil.

A Little ITC App Time with Brian

My first vigil was with Brian J Cano in room 36 (map above) where we decided to give some of the ITC App’s on his iPad a go. In fairness Smart phone or tablet Apps aren’t really something that I have really looked in to, but not entirely ruled out. I have a bit of a personal conflict with the Apps because I work in IT. App’s are programmed and run using clever algorithms in order to provide results, so from my perspective I don’t know enough about them to fully understand them. That said it was interesting to see a couple in use.

www.ashleyknibb.com
ITC App’s with Brian J Cano

On this occasion we started of by using an App called iOvilus, which was pretty much an app version of the popular ghost hunting gadget. Although it used an ’80’s robot voice’, I was sure that Johnny Number 5 was in the room with us, it was an interesting app.

Brian advised that he often likes to use a password to see if the probable spirits can communicate it through the app, as this could in a way provide better evidence of intelligent communication. In this particular case I believe we used the word ‘apple’ and I don’t think it was said. Although there were a few interesting things that came through.

We moved onto the EchoVox app next still using the same password  and looking for further communication. This was slightly different from the iOvilus as it takes a sample and mixes it up a little before giving out sounds that make words rather than whole words.

I’m not going to go into detail about these Apps her as to be honest I don’t feel I truly know enough about them just yet and prefer to do a little research before giving you a better outline. A post for another time perhaps.

www.ashleyknibb.com
Room 36

Suffice to say as our vigil came to a close I had certainly had an interesting and informative time looking at another aspect of tech that we could use. Certainly something I would like to look into in order to understand more about.

So, a little colder we decided to head back to our HQ room and grab a drink.

Live Listening to EVP with MJ

For our next vigil we headed it to room 14 with MJ to see what we might pick up, both on the gadgets and psychically. After the steep climb to the cold room we began to attempt communication. It wasn’t long before what I believe to be two distinct characters were picked up by the group.

The first was a military man, a little stocky perhaps and possibly a seargent. At least a similar rank. With this was also picked up a pain in the kidneys type area. In relation to this MJ captured a few little pieces of audio too, nothing crystal clear, but interesting. A possible story around the character was forming.

www.ashleyknibb.com
The Stairs to Room 14

The second was a woman who was in great distress and possibly linked to an attack of some kind. There was an understanding that she may have fled through the Fort. Again the rough outline of a story regarding the character was there.

What was equally interesting was that those that could receive this information psychically seemed to be empathic to it too, feeling it as well as knowing it. This included feeling particularly rough whilst stood in a certain spot. Something which appeared to cross all groups with differing individuals.

An interesting vigil from a psychical point of view I think.

Pitch Black in Room 10 with Liz

For our final vigil we headed off towards Room 10, pausing at the top of the ramp to perform a brief vigil there too whilst exposed to the elements.

However it was during this time that we returned to the story of the woman picked up previously, it seemed odd and yet fitting. Liz and the others believed that she had fled through that way down the ramp.

Although the stories were similar I knew that we had recorded a brief piece of information on how this young lady looked at our previous location, so I tasked Liz with describing her. Admittedly Liz was honest to the point explaining she was moving fast so description was difficult. However as she ‘gave it a go’ one of the groups voice recorder began to play in their pocket, what was particularly odd was that this was the very description of the woman given in the previous room. It literally started at that point as Liz was about to try, that wasn’t the beginning of the recording either.

After this slightly strange sequence of events we decided to move onto Room 10 and try a little investigating there.

www.ashleyknibb.com
Room 10

Once in room 10 with all our torches off it was literally pitch black. We attempted a little EVP took a few measurements of EMF and Temp, but nothing out of the ordinary really occurred. Although at one point I did think my wrist had been touched, but this could have equally been my coat. It was just too light and inconclusive to work with.

A little more colder and certainly tired, we headed back to the HQ room.

Round Up

All in all the Fort Horsted investigation with Brian J Cano and Sage Paranormal was a fantastic night enjoyed by all that attended. We had some interesting little pieces of activity throughout the Fort and I think we all learnt a little too. Brian and the Sage team ran a really good investigation, which was well structured, busy and also fun. At the end of the day if your going to freeze in a Fort you may as well have fun doing it.

This was a fantastic opener to the D-Day Tour and well received by those attending.

Good job guys..

I would just like to say thank you all; Brian, MJ, Liz, Elizabeth and everyone that attended as it was a great team too. Most of which would move onto Gosport with the tour and investigate the Explosions Museum, but unfortunately I couldn’t make that one. I hear they hit it hard and had a great time though.

Sage Paracon UK 2016 – Ghost Advnetures Guest & Paranormal Tech Guy Carl Hutchinson 

Sage Paracon UK 2016

Sage Paracon UK 2016

On the 8th & 9th October 2016 Sage Paranormal will be hosting their very own Paranormal Convention at Wroxall Abbey Estate in Warwickshire. I know this because it’s well advertised, if you’ve missed it you’re social media blind and because I have the pleasure of being one of the guest speakers. Don’t miss out on what’s going to be a great weekend and pop over to their website later and purchase your tickets. There are some great deals available.

So, as we begin to run up to the event I thought I would make a few of my posts all about some of the things going on over the weekend at Sage Paracon UK 2016. Hopefully as you follow the posts, which I will try to make as frequent as possible, you can join me on a virtual journey into the paranormal world. Our final destination will be the Wroxall Abbey Estate on the 8th October and Sage Paracon UK 2016.

If you missed last weeks post on history being ghost stories and Jeff Belanger from Ghost Adventures, who will be speaking  at Sage Paracon UK 2016, then check it out at Sage Paracon UK 2016 – ‘History is a Ghost Story’ – Jeff Belanger.

Carl Hutchinson’s Search for Ghosts

This weeks post is all about my mate Carl. Okay so we’re not like best mates or anything, but I do consider Carl a good friend and someone I trust in the paranormal field. My family would probably refer to him as ‘one of your ghost pals’, which is term I always find a little humorous considering they are often referring to people that are very much alive, as well ghosts! Carl isn’t a ghost, well at I’m pretty sure he’s not. I mean what is a ghost? Think that’s a question for a different post!

Carl Hutchinson – Sage Paranormal Tech Guy & Investigator

I’ve been fortunate enough to meet and speak with Carl at a few Paranormal events, such as Paracon UK 2014, Sage Mini-Con earlier this year. He is a top bloke and I’m sure many in the field would back me up on that.

As Carl (like me) will be speaking at the upcoming Sage Paracon  later this year I thought I would catch up with him and have brief chat (informal interview) about his paranormal story. All made possible through Social Media, the world truly is getting smaller right?

As for many of us, Carl’s initial understanding was from the art of classic ghost story telling amongst friends, which has become a little more updated these days and delivered through the media of movies. For Carl this was something he really enjoyed, but the stories soon became a reality when he was six years old. It was around this time that he first moved down from Sheffield to Kent and he stayed in a country hotel. As Carl and his brother watched TV in their room they noticed the door handle go up and down a few times. Of course even then Carl had to investigate, but all he found was a funny looking character disappear around the corner of the corridor. It wasn’t until the next day that Carl’s dad enquired with the hotel and they explained that a British Civil War Soldier walked the Hotels corridors playing with door handles. Carl told me how this was possibly his first main experience and the one which has stuck with him and kept his interest in the paranormal all these years.

Tech Guy Carl

I’ve always known Carl for his great knowledge of the varied tech out there that’s available for investigators to use during an investigation. With this in mind I wondered how Carl ended up in this Tech role, was it something he took on or simply ended up with?

“I have always had a logical mind” Carl told me. However when Carl experienced something strange that he couldn’t explain logically, he found himself walking away with more questions than answers. As he learnt and discovered more about the paranormal field he soon realised that there were many pieces of equipment out there that could help him find his answers. However Carl wanted to know all about the equipment before he simply used it, an approach which he still uses today.

These days Carl looks at a location and his brain goes into overdrive planning out the best pieces of equipment to use and where for the best results. Especially when they can be used to collaborate each other.

“I have a house full of equipment and I live and breath equipment” Carl explained. He certainly knows he’s stuff.

Special Guest on Ghost Adventures

Back in March 2012 Carl was asked to join the Ghost Adventures team at Fort Horsted for a special investigation, one Carl wouldn’t forget in a hurry. The Ghost Adventures team asked Carl all about he’s experiences at the Fort which were extensive as he had been investigating the location for many years and had some quite dramatic experiences there. On one occasion he even felt what seemed to be two fists hitting him in the stomach knocking him against the wall. An experiece that meant he didn’t return to the room in question for about two years.

During filming of the Ghost Adventures show, Zak asked Carl to return to that very same room with Aaron. During which they encountered some interesting responses on the SB7, heard footsteps and even a whistle. An thoroughly interesting session with the guys from Ghost Adventures.

Carl’s Paranormal Understanding

As someone that has gone from being a non-believer to an investigator who believes there is something there, but something that requires proper investigation and understanding, Carl takes on a rather Sherlock approach in my book. One that I also share though to be fair. Firstly, he looks to debunk everything he can with logic and understanding. Then whatever is left absent of explanation must be something unknown! Something that we should be seeking explanation for.

“I think I am more of a believer than a non-believer” He tells me.

Carl has a great understanding of the field and that in our world that has explanation, but believes some of which remains unknown may fit into the Stone Tape Theory. A theory that explains how things that occur are simply a replay of an event that was somehow recorded, perhaps store in the locality of where it’s encountered. Carl thinks that high emotions or sudden death are good examples of how these events are imbedded into say a building or object. However Carl doesn’t rule out intelligent Hauntings either, which can respond to the living and often can create the possibility of communication.

During he’s investigations Carl has witnessed, experienced and captured some very strange things; a possible spirit doing impressions of the Sage Paranormal team, a photo of what appears to be a pregnant woman in the Screaming Woods, a full body apparition at Rye Castle, oddities on the thermal camera at the Skirrid Inn.

It was following some stints as a Guest Investigator with Sage Paranormal that he later decided to join the team as permanent member and hasn’t looked back since.
