The rope burns that ghosthunter Carol Fieldhouse claims to have been left with during a visit to a former ropery building
Ghost hunter Carol developed the strange marks on her throat and neck in the former industrial building.
Ghost hunter Carol said she detected an evil presence in the former industrial building in Hull, Yorks.
Mum-of-ten Carol, from Pontefract, Yorks, said: “When we pulled up and looked at the building I thought it was going to be boring.
“But when I got into one of the rooms, straight away we were being pinched, punched and grabbed.”
Carol added: “I went two steps in and felt a presence in there – if it could speak, it would have said ‘get out’.
“I just blacked out – my neck was burning and when we came out and looked at it there was a big rope mark on the left hand side of my neck.
“Later another mark appeared on the right hand side – it went all the way round in a complete circle and felt like a rope round my neck.
“I couldn’t sleep for a good few hours when I got home.”

Photos of the medium taken during the hunt in the former industrial building appear to show an inch-thick red mark around her neck
A reader showing the word poltergeist from the night Carol Fieldhouse claims to have been strangled by a paranormal presence.
The three-storey ropery building, believed to be more than 200 years old, is located on Hull’s historic docks and was previously used to manufacture ropes for fishermen..
When the ghosthunters reached a back room on the second floor the mark appeared.
Photos of the medium taken during the hunt appear to show an inch-thick red mark around her neck, which Carol said was visible first on the left side of her neck and later on the right also.
During the ropery visit the ghosthunters said they also witnessed orbs, moving balls and equipment which picks up frequencies and energy spelling out the words ‘demon’ and ‘poltergeist’.
Carol, who said she has been able to sense spirits since she was a child but dedicated her life to searching for paranormal activity 20 years ago, said she was also left with a mark on her chest.
She added: “There is a very nasty thing in there and we are going back and doing different things to find out more.
“Nothing puts me off – I need answers and want to know what it was and why it did that.”
Carol was accompanied by a group of ghosthunters including clinical hypnotherapist Steve Kneeshaw, 47, who owns the top floors of the ropery building.
The dad-of-three said another time in the building alone he had heard a ‘horrible voice’ call his name, despite knowing he was the only person there.
Steve, from Hull, said: “I have never seen anything like this before.
“I have heard of strange noises and smells, and things going bump in the night, but to physically mark a person – I have never come across that.
“As soon as we came out of the room we noticed the massive red mark going round Carol’s neck – she had been marked within about a minute.
“It looked like a rope mark – like she had been hung.
“At first it was absolutely bright red, it seemed to get redder and redder, but by the end of the night it had disappeared.
“I definitely would not go in that building by myself now for love nor money – it just puts the fear of god in me. It is one hell of a scary place.”
