Standing in the grounds of the remains of a beautiful listed building, RAF Nocton Hall is a deserted RAF hospital.
There is two buildings, the hall (which we explored) and later buildings only a short walk away.
If you are going to visit….good luck its not easy to get in either of the buildings and unless you know security I wouldn’t bother!
The upper half tells and feels like it belongs to a different area to the lower levels.
The upper half appears to look the remains of a standard hall but as you enter and delve beneath you reach what can be described as tunnels with shelter markings and where furniture from recent eras remains…..
It was built in 1945, after the war and wasn’t actually used until 1946 when several new buildings was erected on the site. It officially opened in 1947.
By 1966, the hospital was fully functioning it had operating theatres, maternity ward and a neuro-psychiatric ward.
In 1983 the 740 bed hospital was closed, only to be leased to the US armed forces in 1984 to be a US Air Force wartime contingency hospital, which was used during the Gulf War. During this time only 35 casualties was treated here.
The site was officially closed in 1994 and has stood empty since 1995…
Nocton Hall is believed to be haunted by one particular sobbing ghost. Before it was burnt down the ghost of a young girl was said to roam the halls and particularly enjoy haunting one bedroom within the building.
Previous staff who stayed in the room were awakened on separate occasions at exactly four thirty in the morning to find a young girl standing at the end of the bed. She was sobbing and speaking about a ‘devilish man’ who had ‘done this to her’.
It is believed that this was the ghost of a young servant girl who lived in the house and was tragically murdered by the owner’s son after he had his way with her but then found out that she had become pregnant. This was obviously an inconvenience to the young master so he disposed of her.
A ‘Grey Lady’ has also been known to roam the halls of the old building, but where she comes from is a mystery.
There is also reports of ghostly patients roaming the newer hospital on the site.
We conducted a ITC session with the afterlight box – The settings i used for this was the banks which have random verbal words programmed into it and i used the santus talk as a feature on it, which is a visual word genator, which is triggered on a apparent environment change.
The first video could we have made contact with servant girl…as i turn my camera off more seems to be said which is shown in the second video.
I would say we got some intelligence within this session, check it out for yourself and see what you think….
