Ghost Hunt Supper at Dudley Castle Friday 17th September 2010

GHOST HUNTERS REPORT…..

DUSK TILL DAWN EVENTS AT DUDLEY CASTLE Friday 17TH SEPTEMBER 2010
SUPPER EVENT

MEDIUMS : SUE AND MICHAEL TREANOR

HOST : SUE TREANOR

The guests arrived at about 7pm and were guided up to the Queen Mary Suite, one of the Castle’s restaurants.

After their meal Michael and I did a mediumship demonstration for them, in which they were given personal messages. I read their auras and Michael did a psychometry demo (which means reading the energy from personal belongings).

After they had a ghost walk with the Castle’s caretaker for the evening, Alex, they had about half an hour to explore the castle for themselves and use some of the ghost hunting equipment provided by Dusk Till Dawn.

Then we got on to the real meat of the evening! The vigils !

I took the chequered room, Michael took the Zodiac room (both rooms in the Museum) as we had done a recci beforehand and decided these were the most active areas – and boy were we right!

In the Zodiac room, I had the guests form a circle and did a simple exercise to get the energy flowing. Then we started “calling out” – asking spirit to interact with us and maybe touch someone or show themselves. We didn’t have to wait long for the action to start!

Many people saw (or felt) the shadowy figure of a hooded man moving around the outside of the circle. The man to my left looked like he had a white, pointy beard – similar to those worn in the tudor period.  Then, in the passageway which lead out of the room, some of us saw a bright light – like a torch being switched on and then off again. This phenomena happened again a little later, but this time the light was not quite so bright – maybe the energy had been used up with the brightness of the previous light! In the centre of the circle, once again several people (including Andy, the sceptic in the group!) thought they saw a white, milky energy moving around in small circles, and twinkling lights also moving in the same direction.

In the Zodiac room, a monk was seen and a lady felt like she was being pushed down to her knees in front of him. Several people also felt the presence of an executioner-type figure and actually saw a black energy in front of their face – as if an axe was falling in front of them.

The final vigil took place in the undercroft of the castle, where we all definitely heard the voices of women and men outside and footsteps on the gravel – even though we were the only people in the castle and we were all in one room!

A couple of times during the night, people screamed in fear and we all felt our heartbeats racing away for a few moments!

I must point out that all these phenomena were investigated at the time, every hypothesis we could think of was examined, and we could not explain anything that I have mentioned in this blog – other than it may have been paranormal.

Dudley Castle Overnight Ghost Hunt – Saturday 26th September 2009

dudley_castle_dayDudley Castle was built in 1071 by the Normans, originally built as a wooden castle and then by the 13th Century the Castle was rebuilt from stone.
Dudley Castle has history steeped to the brim with the castle being occupied by Queen Elizabeth in 1575 and even being considered as a prison for Mary Queen of Scots.
The Castle continued to be lived in by the Earl’s of Dudley until 1750 but a terrible fire which continued for 3 days destroyed the castle and the castle sadly became a ruin as it still remains to the present day.
On Halloween 2002 Dudley Castle was the location of the first ever Most Haunted ‘Live’ show which was aired on our TV screens with the famous Derek Acorah as the Guest Medium.
There are said to be a plethora of resident ghosts haunting the castle the scariest being the ominous black monk who has been seen in various parts of the castle by visitors and staff alike on numerous occasions. Another ghost said to haunt the castle is the grey lady who is said to wander aimlessly throughout the castle and its grounds.
The Castle’s Undercroft harbors’ a wealth of paranormal phenomena where people pick up intense emotions and terrifying feelings as if they have been pushed and prodded whilst standing in the atmospheric conditions of the Undercroft.
Poltergeist Activity happens on a frequent basis at this eerie location along with strange noises being heard, ghostly figures and shadows being witnessed.  Visitors to the castle have experienced sensations that they have been touched in the darkness by icy cold fingers.
