Here is a compilation of some of our best EVP`s captured on our investigations across Europe and the USA.
I hope you enjoy them.

Following our same day visit to the De Grey Mausoleum, we travelled a further few more miles to visit and investigate briefly the ruins of Houghton House.

For although we were only onsite a short period as the site shuts at dusk, we managed to capture some interesting EVP`s.

The house was built in approximately 1615 for the writer, translator, and literary patron Mary Sidney Herbert, Dowager Countess of Pembroke (born 27 October 1561) but she died of smallpox on 25 September 1621, not long after its completion. A Jacobean style frieze on the western side of the house incorporated devices from Mary's ancestral Sidney and Dudley families.

In 1794, Francis Russell, 5th Duke of Bedford stripped Houghton House of its furnishings and removed the roof. This may have been due, in part, to his father's horseriding tragedy. The Duke never married nor had he produced a legitimate heir. He died in 1802 by which time the house, now open to the elements, was already in decay.

It is said that the house was the model for House Beautiful in John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress. Its staircase survives in The Swan Hotel in Bedford.

Here I visit Holy Cross Church, Felsted to investigate the mausoleum of the Riche family.
On this investigation one of the oddest EVP`s is captured in a strange place, and I get the opportunity to share this experience with you, which I hope you`ll rate.

Richard Rich, 1st Baron Rich (1496/7 12 June 1567), was Lord Chancellor during the reign of King Edward VI of England. He was the founder of Felsted School in Essex in 1564.

Thomas More told Rich at the time of More's trial that he was reputed light of his tongue, a great dicer and gamester, and not of any commendable fame; but he was a commissioner of the peace in Hertfordshire in 1528, and in the next autumn became reader at the Middle Temple.

Rich was an executor of the will of King Henry VIII, on which much suspicion has been thrown, and on 26 February 1548 he became Baron Rich of Leez. In the next month he succeeded Wriothesley as chancellor, an office in which he found full scope for the business and legal ability he undoubtedly possessed. He supported Protector Somerset in his reforms in church matters, in the prosecution of his brother Thomas Seymour, and in the rest of his policy until the crisis of his fortunes in October 1549, when he deserted to Warwick (afterwards Northumberland), and presided over the trial of his former chief. His daughter had married Warwick's eldest son, Henry (1526-1544/5; died at Boulougne). He was one of the subscribers of the device of 21 June 1553 settling the crown on Lady Jane Grey, but swiftly abandoned his support (as indeed almost everyone did). During the final years of Henry's, Edward's, and Mary's reigns, he was in favor of whatever religion was in power; he was not Catholic enough to oppose the persecution of the Church under Somerset and Northumberland, and he enthusiastically persecuted Protestants during Mary's reign.

Recently I visited a famous landmark site called Mistley Towers at Mistley Thorn, Essex.
Standing by the banks of the River Stour estaury, Mistley Towers are the twin towers of the now demolished Church of St. Mary the Virgin at Mistley in Essex.
The original Georgian parish church on the site had been built in classical style early in the 18th century following the death of Richard Rigby Esquire. Later in that century there was a grandiose plan by his son, the wealthy politician Richard Rigby, to transform Mistley Thorn into a spa town. Rigby wished to see a church from the windows of his mansion and a suitably grand church was required for the affluent visitors expected to patronise the new spa. Thus in 1776, the great architect Robert Adam was commissioned to enhance the church. His design was in the neoclassical style, with a tower at both the east and the west ends of the church. These are now all that remain of the once magnificent structure.
My aim was to visit the tower`s interior by arrangement with a keyholder with a view to capturing any e.v.p or other paranormal event.
Although I was able to tap into a number of spiritual presences, the opportunity for capturing good e.v.p was somewhat diminished by the ever present road traffic - particularly large HGV`s travelling to and from the nearby port.
However, it was a worthwhile venture as you shall see in this video.
Please rate it if you view it!:)

I return once more to the haunted bedroom and again capture spiritual anomalies which appeared on my request.
If that was not strange enough I found this observation even weirder. As you will see, some anomalies were seen by me through the camcorder`s LCD video view panel, whilst others were only detected on editing.
Even more interesting was that I captured a huge white light anomaly moving quickly from right to left yet on review it was barely no more than a weak grey `smudge`.
I believe that light anomalies operate within a certain light frequency band, and this determines what the LCD panel will show or not - as it may be. But either way, the anomaly appears on tape. I`ve also noticed that during these events (as many of you have) that the camera goes out of focus as it desperately (in auto focus) attempts to hone in on an anomaly.
Now one for the sceptics. It isn`t dust that appears on voice command as dust hasn`t (as far as I am aware) a thinking sentient process equipped with hearing. And these incidents always combine with the camcorder anomalies noted by me.
This is a common experience noticed not just by me, but many other paranormal investigators too. Another facet (I hope) on our broadening knowledge of paranormality.
Please rate this video. If I am to keep my work visible in YouTube`s search engine, your votes will help keep it more in the public domain. I`m finding that large commercial companies are gradually pushing independent`s like me out of the ratings charts - thankyou:)

Just before Christmas 2009, I journeyed to the Adriatic to video sights and sounds of this beautiful area .
Here is my recollection placed to audio, video, and music of this very special experience.

Here is a detailed video on guides. tips and hints into performing your own paranormal investigation.
Hopefully this will be a useful tool in the art of paranormal investigation if you are a novice or an interested person.

Recently I visited in company with fellow team member Sean Dalton a most unusual and historic church in Dublin, Eire.
St Michan`s Church and crypt was first built in 1095 AD by early Danish settlers.
The church was totally rebuilt (using the old foundations) in 1685, and was later renovated in 1825.
The church has many famous associations, and not least that George Handel the famous composer first performed his iconic work, the Messiah by playing it on the church`s organ in 1724.
But the real interest is the original Danish catacombs below which contain a number of mummified bodies of which four are currently on public display. These bodies are naturally preserved by the dry magnesium enriched limestone that forms the bedrock of this structure.
Two famous Irish Protestant revolutionaries the Sheares brothers are entombed here after being executed in 1798 by the British, with the death mask of another, Theobald Wolfe Tone who was executed the same year placed on display.
Another famous connection is that the author Bram Stoker drew inspiration by visiting the catacombs for his novel, `Dracula`.
The main reason for our visit was the catacombs, and here is my report.
