Ghost Hunts At Wentworth Woodhouse, In Rotherham, With Simply Ghost Nights, 7th March 2015
Simply Ghost Nights returned to Wentworth Woodhouse on the 7th March 2015 for a much anticipated ghost hunting event, this most splendid of buildings is a must for any ghost hunter. After the team had done it's baseline checks and the meet and greet had finished it was time to begin our ghost adventure to see which spirits would want to communicate with our ghost hunters. In a vigil with Stuart and Jez they spoke about a vigil in the downstairs oak lined panelled room, a group were attempting table tapping to interact with the former residents of Wentworth Woodhouse. The group were excited as the table repeated their taps on the table and at one point the table moved to each of the ghost hunters who were seated at the table. The group ascertained they were communicating with a lady spirit via the taps on the table. Mark and Phil mentioned a vigil in the Bedroom where our brave ghost hunting guests were claiming to see a whole manner of occurrences, from a full blown apparition, people being touched by unseen hands, dark shapely figures were also reported. Strangely enough Wendy, Gillian and Kerry also a bizarre vigil in the Bedroom very much similar to Mark and Phil's, with guests claiming to have being touched and many refusing to stay in the room. In the main reception area with the pillars Stuart and Jez described a vigil where a group witnessed the table moving between each guest on request and when using the Franks box most of the guests heard their names mentioned and strangely one guest was clearly called a 'Chav', which is quiet a modern name so we thought however Chav the word has existed since at least the 19th century and derives from the meaning Child in Romania. Was the spirit calling out the derogative name Chav or referring to them as young. In the drawing room Lesley and Rosey spoke about a vigil when all the group were all sat in a circle holding hands and the doors started rattling on request and the room got very shadowy with taps in corners of room and footsteps were heard walking round by everyone and one guest felt as if someone was stood behind them as she went icy cold and we all felt her hands which were freezing. We then asked her to move to a different position in the circle where someone felt warmer and exactly the same happened again. We all heard noises such as moans, a cough, footsteps walking round. Several guests saw a mist swirling round the centre of the circle. And another guest saw a misty shadow starting to form behind a guest as well. Chris and Cassie mentioned that the table moved violently at one point during a table tipping experiment which left several of the guest too upset to continue in there. Also the Ovilus and Spirit box gave messages to leave as the group were not welcome. In the bedroom Lesley described how during a table tipping session the table was moving around the room The Rem also alarmed out as well and while using the Ouija board the spirit they were communicating with made it clear that he did not like them been near the bed. Chris, Cassie, Jez and Stuart all reported the REM pods going off in the Ballroom and the side the upstairs, as well as the K2's spiking on request in the Chapel. The Hall with the Pillars was another active area with Lesley and Roseys vigil when a group made contact with a spirit called Emily who was 7 years old and Jez and Stuart spoke about how a George had made he's presence known to one group and another group had made contact with a Catherine who was 9 year old as well. Mark and Phil mentioned a vigil in the Bedroom where our brave ghost hunting guests were claiming to see a whole manner of occurrences, from a full blown apparition, people being touched by unseen hands, dark shapely figures were also reported. Strangely enough Wendy, Gillian and Kerry also a bizarre vigil in the Bedroom very much similar to Mark and Phil's, with guests claiming to have being touched and many refusing to stay in the room.
