TIP is 16 years old on 25 November 2011

On Friday we will have been meeting at The Churston Court Hotel under the banner of TIP for 16 years!

Nearly every Monday during that time we have been there to meet people who share our interest or have an experience they want help understanding. Hopefully we will be there for many years to come!

To celebrate, we are having a joint birthday/xmas do at the White Hart Hotel, home of TIP-X, our fledgling group in Exeter...........a meal with a bit of a vigil afterwards! Just the way we like to party!

So it's HAPPY BIRTHDAY TIP!!!!!!!!!!

Family event at Overbeck's previous day to ours!

The night before our investigation, this event will be taking place...a walk around the grounds and house by torchlight! This is a more family orientated affair but it will still be equally spooky!
So why not do both if you fancy being scared twice!

A year since the last post...and it's nearly Halloween again!

This is our main project for this Halloween, a public event at the beautiful and very atmospheric National Trust property at Overbeck's, Salcombe.

If you have never been there it is well worth a visit as it commands stunning views over the estuary with an amazing layout of terraced gardens as well as a museum and restaurant area that it shares with the attached Youth Hostel.

All this will be accesible throughout the night of our investigation, making it a unique opportunity to explore the premises after dark...if you dare!!

Ghost Hunting & Psychic Development

Overnight Ghost Hunt & Psychic Development Weekends

Weekend of Saturday Sat 11th September 2010.

The Old Church House Inn, Torbryan is considered to be one of the most haunted pubs in the South West. In this evocative 14th Century coaching inn which has been visited by both Henry VII and Henry VIII, numerous paranormal experiences have been reported, including mysterious footsteps and creaking floor-boards, lights turning on and off, additionally, strange sighs are heard, people get touched on the back of the neck and feel as though someone is blowing in their ear. Many visitors have seen ghostly apparitions and heard eerie sounds late at night...the seated figure of a monk…the images of faces appearing in the wooden paneling in the bar area…In the main bar, candles relight themselves. A spotlight in the bar sometimes turns itself off at 2.30 each afternoon, then switches itself on again at 3pm. The imprint of two faces has also been seen in the 'Armada' wall. (The pub is constructed from oak paneling and beams salvaged from Spanish ships that were part of the Spanish Armada). In the lounge, a figure has been seen descending a set of stairs that were taken out years ago. Disembodied footsteps can be heard moving towards a bathroom, though they fade away if followed. A phantom man in a cloak has been reported in the inn.

Spectre Detecters Psychic Weekend 1 @ the Old Church House Inn costs £89 per person (for 1 night), £119 (2 nights) bed & breakfast accommodation, (based on 2 people sharing a twin room), all talks & workshops, vigil, demonstration, guided visits to church, hill fort, ‘Most Haunted’ screening and participation in all aspects of the investigation.

The double bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, as well as other facilities for the comfort of the visitor: colour television, tea and coffee making facilities as well as irons, ironing boards and hair dryers

This is an event for souls who are aware there is more to life than that which we are told to believe, and who would like to experience an overnight stay spend in a 14th century haunted Inn with experts and like-minded souls… don’t grow old wondering!

To book: call 01803 812 372 and mention SPECTRE DETECTERS PSYCHIC WEEKEND 1. Please be aware capacity is limited and demand will be high. This will be memorable. The darkest hour is just before the dawn… questions are only answered after they’re asked!
