Ray Braiden took over the Seven Stars in Robertsbridge [England] on June 3 and moved in to the High Street property with wife Michelle, daughters Hannah and Emily and Emily’s partner Ben.
Days after the family moved in, strange incidents were reported in the top room, occupied by Emily and Ben. Items were moved around and a small dish sitting on a speaker was seen to be ‘skimmed’ through the air across the room. And one night the couple woke to find the mattress they had been sleeping on had been moved. Emily and Ben have since moved out of the pub.
The Seven Stars has a reputation for spooky goings-on and was previously named one of the top ten most haunted pubs in the country...
Ray contacted old friend and paranormal investigator Rob Foster...Hastings-based Rob said: “We are trying to find out what it is in a bid to coexist with it and find out whether it’s harmful. At the moment the jury is out on that. We are going to come back and do a full investigation shortly and establish exactly what is here.”
Rob believes that several spirits inhabit the 14th Century pub, with previous incumbents reporting sightings of mysterious figures in the bar and items flying off the shelves in the kitchen.
Rob said he was able to communicate with one of the spirits using electronic equipment. By asking closed questions and measuring the response, which sounds like radio static, he says the ghost gave its name and claims he was buried in Salehurst churchyard in the 1600s.
Rob is carrying out additional research to discover who the spirits are.
