At what age do you think people should be allowed to go on investigations and why?

I was just about to go off on a a subject completely unrelated to the post when I first saw the title .. but, I'll shall try and answer the question in the original post.

I say 35 .. that way, it increases the chance that I'm the youngest present .. :D

But if not .. 18 it would have to be if for no other reason to lessen any chance of someone dicking about. Don't get me wrong, not all under 18s dick about and many over 18 do too .. but 18s a nice round number. And thats if NGI were doing a guest night.

If not - a normal general lazy night out somewhere instead, then I wouldn't care really - if I knew they were sensible and no going to mess about.

Simply for legal and responsibility issues I'd say 18. Can just imagine a secret squirrel 16 year old going to an investigation without telling their mam and the bloody police showing up! Scare the ghosts away that will!

I've got to say that I agree with you both, although we have had some young 'uns on our charity nights where they have been accompanied by there parents and they've been great. Much better that the moaning middle aged women who want every night to be like Most Haunted. :wink:

1 can of special brew is enough to put me on my back! You must have a bloody strong gut! Haha!

I was interested in ghost hunting when I was 16 ... but then I'm a freak and we're few and far between thankfully :P

I did my first 'proper' ghost hunt at 13. Many, many, many moons ago.

I never said I was still standing half-way through it nor got home without the aid of the emergency services .. but I know what I'd rather have done at that age and it wasn't getting a hard on because of a creaky floorboard somewhere!!! :D

Think we should leave Jay's bodily activities there and move swiftly on.
18 seems sensible to me...actually think 18/sensible is a bit of an oxymoron.
We have done events with children in the past but its not really my cup of tea and sometimes need to tone things down for the kiddies....Shaun, no more talk of puppies and jelly babies please.

Good thing we don't have an upper age limit now Jay...getting on a bit aren't we? :twisted:

Yeah I'd say 16, maybe even 14 (although that could be pushing it) is a good enough age, depends on the person though. I definitely wouldn't suggest anyone 12 or younger.

I know of a ghost hunt I did earlier this year with a 12 year old that thought he knew it all, pfffft what a brat he was and wouldn't shut up. Was so glad I was not in his group.

My very first ghost hunt was at butlins (well it used to be) grand hotel in scarborough. I was around 10 myself and I was terrified, only reason was. I did actually see a ghost before the hunt, my friend wouldn't believe me (as its ghost hunt night) so when I described the ghost to my friend and we talked with a cocktail waitress, she told us about 3 ghosts in the hotel, I am not sure who went whiter, me or my friend when the cocktail waitress described the same spook I had seen not so long ago. I will always have that image on my mind for the rest of my life, and me being me I stared directly in the eyes of this ghost.

This ghost was non other then Anne Bronte

I would really love to do a hunt at Elmwood ;) what did you see

During the invo, not a jot. We had a slight temperature drop but that was about it.

A few years prior to this though, I was in Elmwood late one night with my parents. My dad used to develop his camera film in the dark room they had there (this was in the late 70s by the way). We were the only people in the building or so we thought until we heard distinct footsteps walking up and down the corridor outside the room.

As you can probably guess, when we checked there was no one there. This happened a couple of times during the course of the night. Very strange. :shock:
