The Hood Family and Ghostfinders about to enter the cave on Halloween
the Hood Family, Deanne, Mark and their twin nine year old sons, Aaron and
Connor, the first ever family to spend Halloween in Wookey Hole Caves
last night (October 31st).
family from Shepton Mallet in Somerset were guided through the caves from 11pm
on Hallowe'en with professional Ghosthunting team Barri Ghai and Ian Wilce,
tracking paranormal activity in the Caves.
ghosthunters conducted 'vigils' within each of the chambers and monitored
response using a range of high tech equipment including motion detectors, night
vision cameras EMF detectors and thermometers. Activity noted by the team
included distant laughter, heavy sighs, low rumblings, extreme temperature
changes and lights flashing on and off.
commented: 'It was damp and very, very cold but an absolutely
unforgettable night. We'll be able to dine out on this experience for the
rest of our lives!' Before undertaking the challenge, both Deanne and
Mark were slightly sceptical about the existence of spirits. After,
Deanne said: 'I'm sure that the acoustics of the Caves can play a lot of tricks
but I'm certainly more convinced than I was before I went in. In fact,
there were some moments when I was really, really scared!'
The challenge for the spooky sleepover was set by Wookey Hole Cave Aged Cheddar, a cheese matured in the Cave and the Hood Family were chosen to take it up from several entries Mark and Connor stayed the course, sleeping on camp beds outside the cheese cave for the full term though Deanne and Aaron sensibly opted to cry off at 2am in favour of a warm bed.
