Durham, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 01, 2011 -- On a recent ghost hunt to The Manor House Hotel, West Auckland, County Durham, the Simply Ghost Nights team experienced first hand paranormal activity from the world of spirit that shook them to the core. The group consisted of eight participants waiting in earnest for the ghostly occupants of The Manor House Hotel to commence their spirit communication.
The history of the hotel is chequered to say the least, with numerous sightings of figures dressed in clothing from a time long gone, monks are said to haunt the hotel and spectral children are also seen on a regular basis by staff and hotel guests a like.
As we turned the lights off in the dining room to commence our séance, in this 17th century Manor House that was now converted into a hotel. The customers were all holding hands in a circle, with bated breath I called out " Is anyone there". The group of all women were all very uneasy, smiling innately at each other in the subdued torch light. "Show yourself as a light I called out" hoping for some light phenomena, "light up the chandelier" I asked, the chandelier hung from the ceiling like a huge stalactite. Then "Wow" we all shouted as the chandelier lit up like a candle for only a couple of seconds.
There was no light entering the room at all, and no torch light could have made that whatsoever. We investigated every avenue of the light been in fact a normal incident but we actually had to come in to the conclusion this had been in fact some sort of paranormal phenomena.
As a group they loved the light phenomena that the spirits of this old Manor house had provided that night. We sample this kind of activity with Simply Ghost Nights on few occasion occasions, but when we do we still find it amazing when we witness this level of paranormal activity.
