13 October 2012 - Woodlands Hall Hotel, Ruthin
We returned for a follow up vigil at this splendid hotel in rural North Wales but unfortunately there was nothing significant to report.
22 September 2012 - Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker, Nantwich
There are various hotspots whereby paranormal activity is alleged to take place at this once secret bunker. Audible and visual, but most of all people have reported feeling unwell, dizzy, uncomfortable etc. It is not hard to see why a number of people have reported these phenomena. The whole place has an eerie feel to it with gas masks, geiger counters and mannequins randomly located around the building which is in complete darkness during investigations due to the linked motion detected exhibits. It feels very much like you've gone back in time! So it was no surprise that during our vigil one of our investigators has to leave the Government Dept Room at 7:43pm due to feeling unwell. There were a few other minor incidents, particularly in the Cinema but nothing with any scientific significance.
Standing in a field alone, half a mile from the nearest road, the church dates from 1689 and is built on the site of an older timber framed church. Interestingly, an outbuilding houses an old horse drawn hearse which dates from 1880 having last been used in the 1920's. There is a legend that if anyone sees a while owl flying down the tower and lands in the churchyard then they, or someone close to them will die. A couple of other paranormal groups have also visited this location and as it was on our patch, we decided to take a look for ourselves. At 9:13pm, two investigators heard voices near the outbuilding at the front of the churchyard. Shortly after we carried out some tests which proved that that sounds could 'possibly' have carried with the wind from a nearby location. After the vigil, we decided to stop off at one of our more familiar venues just down the rouad; St Edith's Churchyard in Shochlach. At 1:05am approx, one investigator thought that they may have seen a black figure amongst the gravestones but this may just have been a trick of the light. However, it was noted that investigators felt more comfortable at St Edith's as opposed to Old St Chad's, even members who had not visited either site before.
1 September 2012 - A Private Residence in Allerton, Liverpool
One of our investigators has been continually monitoring this location for some time now and has even obtained some unexplained audio prior to joining Ghanon. We decided to send along a few investigators to check it out. The only incident to report from the vigil was that three investigators heard what sounded like footsteps at 10.45 pm in one of the above bedrooms.
4 August 2012 - Whittington Castle, Oswestry
Various activity has been reported at what remains of this 12th century castle, both inside and within the grounds. There were a few incidents to report from our investigation. At 10:24pm various investigators witnessed the sound of footsteps. We tried replicating the event to which we were convinced that the source was that of a guest investigator who turned up midway through the vigil; post analysis of our audio recordings confirmed this. An interesting incident was witnessed twice by two separate investigators whom heard what sounded like 'the scrunching of cellophane' in the gift shop area at 11:10pm and 11:35pm; for this we have no explanation. A number of investigators also felt 'uneasy' in the Courtroom between 12:38am and 1:01am.
7 July 2012 - Woodlands Hall Hotel, Ruthin
There has been a building on the site of the hall for hundreds of years with the current mock Tudor mansion being constructed around 1870. Many reports of acvtivity have been reported throughout the hotel, the Tower Room being more active than others. Guests have also witnesses the sound of 'horse's hooves' within the ground of the hall's caravan park. They appear to follow a specific route to and from what is now the children's play area. During our investigation there were two incidents to report. The first was at 12:36am when a door hatch within the Tower Room appeared to have opened whilst the room had been vacated. On further investigation it was discovered that a sudden closing of the entrance door would cause the hatch to open. Another door (bathroom) was found to be half closed after one of our investigators had left it wide open; however this time the event could not be replicated.
9 June 2012 - Private Case in Pen-y-ffordd
We were given the opportunity to investigate a building where there has been a report of two young girls being sighted in the main hall, unexplainable draughts and on one occasion, a dog refused to enter the same room. During our investigation we did try to replicate the latter a number of times but with no positive results. The remainder of the vigil was quiet with nothing significant to report.
25 May 2012 - St Edith's Churchyard, Shocklach
A second vigil here within a week, and this time we were joined by special guests from a local dancing troupe. A couple of incidents worthy of noting, the first being at 11:23pm when two investigators heard footsteps/movement on the lane. A likely explanation could possibly be an animal but nothing could be found on investigation. The second incident occurred between 12:10am and 12:20am when all present were located on the lane by the churchyard entrance. Various investigators experienced intermittent smells of alcohol. We immediately investigated the area and all attendees were checked but no source could be found.
19 May 2012 - St Edith's Churchyard, Shocklach
Our sixth vigil at this location where we finally managed to walk the entire unused lane (reputedly the scene of a ghostly procession) alongside the church to the River Dee. There was one minor incident at 9:45pm when a dull 'thud' was heard possibly from within the empty church. Aside from that, the vigil was very quiet. Post analysis provided us with a possible anomaly on one of our photographs but this was proven to be simulacra created by a water butt to the south side of the church.
14 April 2012 - Empress Tattoo, Birkenhead
We returned for a follow up vigil and also invited along a special guest, Dave Shirley from Wirral Psychic & Paranormal Workshop. Unfortunately there was nothing significant to report.
