Ghost hunting in Epping Forest
GOOD thing I’m not particularly sensitive to paranormal phenomena or Saturday night could have been a reasonably uncomfortable if not frightening experience.
Venturing into Epping Forest for my first ghost hunt at the weekend, I was oblivious to most of the action that was happening around me.
Talking afterwards to Barbara Lowe who led the White Light Paranormal investigation, I have just found out that we came head to head with a shape-shifting demon and for most of the night were surrounded by spirits with evil intentions!
For me the night had been like taking a museum tour without the headphones. I had to keep asking everyone around me what was happening. But despite that, it was a night worth remembering and I am fortunate to have gone.
I had interviewed Barbara a couple of weeks ago about her adventures as a psychic medium (see Ghostly Encounters of a Nocturnal Kind and Interview with a Psychic Medium) and she was keen for me to experience a ghost hunt myself with White Light Paranormal.
Brooke, also a ghost hunt newbie, joined me with Barbara and her crew on the investigation of the High Beach area of Epping Forest on Saturday night and agreed it was a memorable experience.
Epping Forest is chosen by ghost hunters because it has a long and dark history or murder and crime: Dick Turpin had a hideout there, a mental asylum was nearby, gangsters like The Krays used it for a body dumping ground and there were suicides and witchcraft aplenty.
