11:20pm:- The team went into the churchyard, stood around a tree everyone was drawn to, orbs appeared on cameras. It was possibly a hanging tree.
11:30pm:- They then entered the Elizabethan side of the castle, Andy felt Micheal was connected more to that side than the other. They then started a seance. Andy started calling out. Andy and Steve felt cold sensations on their arms. Margaret saw a flash of green light on the wall. Andy then saw a flash of green light on the stairs, behind the motion sensors. The motion sensor then fell over and went off and made everyone jump!! The seance continued but the smell of horse manure was over-powering.
11:45pm:- The group moved into the upper section of the Elizabethan side. Seance started again and got a cold sensation. They then walked around the outside of the ruins.
12:15am:- The team moved into the old kitchen area and started glass divination. The sound of a ticking clock could be heard. The glass started moving
Is this a male spirit? - YES - Are you connected to the castle? - NO - Are you connected to the church? - YES - Margaret smelt perfume - Are you giving us the smell of perfume? - YES - The glass then began to knock on the table.
The glass started moving differently, a female spirit connected with the team, she doesn't know she is dead, this was her land. The team asked her to lift the glass and it did. Andy felt the name Mary, Is your name Mary? - YES - Are you connected to Mr. Corbett? - YES - Did you work for Mr. Corbett? - YES
12:30:- Team had a break
12:45:- The team went straight back to the glass on table. The glass straight away began to knock again, then move in large circles. The team think that more than one spirit was trying to connect as the glass was still knocking. Mary came back on the glass again - the team felt she pushed the other spirits away. They then connected with a different spirit who they believed to be a female witch. She was hung from the tree in the 1200's. She was standing at the table with the team. They asked her to touch Steve and he felt a cold breeze on his hand, and it was not windy. She practised witchcraft. Steve and Chris then tried the glass alone but it would not move.

They then connected with a male spirit, Andy felt his name was 'Samuel', the spirit confirmed this on the glass. He was not happy to talk to the team, he liked tipping the glass over, he did it many times!!

They filled the glass on the table with water. The table started vibrating and moving, water began to spill all around the table. The team asked the spirit to lift the table off the floor, and two legs raised off the floor! After vigourously rocking the table, the leg broke! Team Spiritz have never tried Table Tipping before and were very impressed with the results.

We found this location very interesting and some great things were experienced, this place would need more investigation to be sure of any paranormal activity
In the 11th century Bartholomew Torret built a castle in the area known as Moreton. In 1239 the Castle passed into the hands of the Corbet family through marriage and the Castle became known as Moreton Corbet. Over the following years Sir Andrew Corbett merged the Castle into the Elizabethan manor house but unfornatley before the work was complete Andrew Corbet died.
The house then passed into the hands of Sir Vincent Corbet who carried on the work of Andrew.
During the reign of King James, Vincent took pity on his neighbour Paul Holmyard who was a puritan. After some time Vincent became unhappy with Pauls views and asked him to leave the house. Paul hid in the local woodland eating anything he could find. One day paul left the woods and put a curse upon the Corbet family cursing the house never to be completed.
During the civil war Vincent stopped work upon the house and fortifed the house, he had been miss led and the house was taken over by Paliamentrian Troops who burned down the house. (was this the work of pauls curse?)
The house then over the years changed hands many times . In the 18th century after plans to rebuild the house were never followed through the house was abandoned and all that is left of what was once a house fit for royalty is now in ruins.
If you belive in curses or not you cant disagree that something or someone was stopping the completion of that house and unfornatley we will never know what the somthing was!!!!
