The Haunted Hunts: Project Invocation - 'Cannock Chase'

Danny Moss and The Haunted Hunts team embark on their penultimate investigation of their fourth season entitled 'Project Invocation' at some eerie and infamous woods in the West Midlands. According to our own calculations, Cannock Chase in Staffordshire is the most haunted forest in the UK, but will The Haunted Hunts team agree?

Danny Moss is, as always, joined by his fellow investigators, Rebecca Salisbury-Moss, Emma Dawe, Charlie Rutter and Roxanne Rutter. None of them have any idea where they are going and are not told the paranormal history of the woods in advance. The tactics and methods used during their investigation will be explained to them upon arrival, which means the team really are in the dark and will be pushed outside of their comfort zones and to the limits of fear. The experiment is designed to test if fear itself can invoke paranormal activity.

After being given nothing more than a postcode on the morning of the investigation, the team arrive and find out what the team have planned for them. These instructions dictate which team members will be going where during the night and what techniques they will use to hunt for spooks.

The chase has quite a reputation and it's not just ghost the team have to worry about, as Danny explains on arrival, "it fills me full of fear, it's not only spirits we're dealing with here, it's possible UFOs, possible elementals. I'm absolutely dreading this."

The crew lead each of the investigators out into the forest one-by-one where they were left alone in the dark depth of the woods. They've each got an hour alone, spread out amongst the trees out of screaming range of each other.

The woods proved understandably unsettling for all of the team who were forced to spend an hour there alone with just a camera for company. Emma said, "this is one of my worst nightmares."

Becki was using the portal device when all of a sudden a strange and disturbing sound like a scream repeatedly came through the device, leaving her noticeably shaken.

After being rescued from the woods by the crew, the team was split into two groups to continue their investigation. Danny and Charlie took crew member Nick to the western end of the forest where they conducted a vigil using the Estes Method. This is an experiment that relies on cutting off the senses of one investigator, in this case, Charlie. While sheltered from any external influences, Charlie had to listen to the output of a Spirit Box through headphones and say if he hears any responses.

Meanwhile Danny, who was stood next to Charlie but couldn't hear the sounds coming from the device was calling out and encouraging any spirits present to speak to Charlie through the Spirit Box. Of course, Charlie couldn't hear any of Danny's questions, all he hears is the Spirit Box rapidly scanning through radio frequencies, it's believed that spirits can manipulate the static and white noise in these frequency ranges to form words and sentences.

The girls were also conducting the same experiment in a different part of the forest, before coming together for one final group vigil.

The team have just one more challenge ahead of them at another terrifying location where they'll once again have their nerves tested as they're pushed to the limits of their fear. We'll be bringing you the final episode guide of the season tomorrow.
