Loud crashing sounds from the kitchen but no damage

Submitted by: John

My Story: I’ve heard of other people experiencing this and have read a lot relating to this experience but maybe someone here has experienced something similar.

When I was in my late teens my parents use to go away on short holidays and I would often stay behind to ‘protect the fort’.

We lived in a 3 bedroom open plan house. My parent,s bedroom was situated at the front of the house and it had its own door to the garden as well as its own bathroom. More often as not I would sleep in their bedroom with my two jack russels in there with me, only because if I ever heard anyone breaking in I would be able to get out of the bedroom and into the garden without having to go through the rest of the house.

One weekend while my parents were away I was up late one night watching tv in their bedroom with the bedroom door locked, as usual when I was by myself, with both my dogs on the bed with me (sorry mom and dad). It was late in the night and about 2 hours earlier I had finished cleaning the dishes and had left them on the drying rack. While lying in bed just as I started to doze off the came loud crashing sound come from the kitchen which sounded like the pots and dishes I put there had fallen off the drying rack. I could even hear one of the pot lids spin around on the floor, both my dogs went mad but wouldn’t go near the bedroom door. I couldn’t hear anyone in the house nor any glass being broken as though someone was climbing in through the window. So I chose to ignore the sound, dismissing it as a neighbourhood cat coming through the window which has happened before, and ended up watching tv for the rest of the night. I dozed off in the very early hours of the morning and awoke when the sun was coming through the curtains. I decided to venture out of my parents bedroom and into the kitchen to inspect the carnage down by the ‘cat’ only to discover that there was absolutely nothing lying on the floor, nothing broken and every dish, plate, pot, pot lid and pan were still in the drying rack.

To this day I’ve never been able to ‘debunk’ that. I often think, was it my imagination but then I recall the way my dogs behaved and think otherwise.

  1. Hi John:-)

    I believe everything you said here, I’ve had this too.

    Back in 1965 my first (late) husband and I were 20 and 26 respectively, we lived in a semi in a village called Spratton in Northampton. Loads of paranormal stuff happened to me there and we both experienced it because he too was psychic having grown up open to ghost speak in a haunted vicarage. But his psychic sense came to the fore once he married me, since mine was active all the time, so this is only one event inside that house:

    We were fast asleep, we had two very young children, a son in his own room, a daughter in hers and I was just preganant with our third. I can’t recall the time, but it was the early hours when suddenly, we both got woke with a start when something massively heavy crashed against the outside of our bedroom door and slid to the floor.

    Tony my husband, was out of bed so fast, his feet barely touched the floor, he may have died aged 41 of alcohol abuse, but back then, he’d just been come out the army and was bantam-weight boxing champion of his regiment, so he was agile. And he wasn’t scared of dark or ghosts either, but he assumed someone had broken in. He flung the door wide open with me begging him to take care, thinking he’d get smashed on the head by the intruder.

    There was no one there, and nothing on the landing, so he went from room to room (this would become a pattern for him with our shared paranormal experiences as the years went by) and he found nothing anywhere, nothing fallen, nothing out of place, our children never woke, never heard anything, the dog never stirred, just the two of us were woken and heard the crashing sound.

    We never bottomed that one, and that exact phenomenon in that house, never happened again, but gosh it was so loud, how our neighbours and children and dog never heard it, amazes me even now, yet nothing, absolutely nothing out of place anywhere.


  2. This Happens at my house often! Currently I have a house guest who is complaining about loud crashing noises at night coming from the kitchen but when he goes to inspect, nothing has fallen. I let him know that I have experienced this plenty in this house. I have never seen any ghostly image but I do have some strange goings on. One day a candle just popped off my coffee table and it wasn’t near the edge. My house guest also complains of the lights in the guest room popping on. I have seen them come on, sometimes along with the fan, sometimes alone and sometimes the fan just comes on. I have tried to attribute this to faulty wiring or a broken remote but it doesn’t explain why the combinating is different every time. Also I will be sitting at my computer and on ocassion my arm will become freezing cold like a major wind just hit it. I always get up to see if I left the front door open. Oh and my house guest said he walked into the guest room and all of his toiletries were knocked over. So I do think that what you experienced was some sort of paranormal activity and not a cat or other animal.

  3. If you read some of Einstein’s thoughts about time I think you might see that time past is looping over your time present. Usually nothing to be afraid of.

  4. This particular phenomenon of loud crashing noises with no damage or fallen objects happens in my home constantly and has for the last 2 – 3 years on a regular basis. I finally decided to check the Internet to see if there were any references to this, as I have never heard of this happening to others. It’s somewhat of a relief to hear that this is not entirely unusual. It happens so often that I don’t even bother to get up to see what happened anymore. Not one item is ever out of place. Many of these sounds or crashes are very specific (such as the pan lid spinning on the floor) and I can identify them. Some are just very loud and startle my cat and I wide awake (she is always asleep next to me and has not caused any of these but is very afraid when they happen). I have even been awake when several have happened. They really don’t frighten me anymore, probably because they are so frequent, but have caused me to lose a lot of sleep. I’ve always been fairly psychic, and many, many other things have happened, such as one or the other of my TV’s turning itself on spontaneously, but I have always been puzzled by these crashes. I don’t know what it is either, but thank you all for sharing these stories as it was very helpful to me and soewhat comforting.

  5. This is happening at my house. Four o’clock this morning, heard a loud crash in my bedroom, it jarred me awake. I thought our TV had fallen off the dressed but it didnt. I’ve heard other things also but this one this morning was the loudest yet. So glad I am not the only person experiencing this!

  6. I heard the same thing!! Like pots and pans crashing to the floor but nothing was amiss at all. This happened to me twice

  7. Same thing happened to My girlfriend and myself. We both heard the same things. We were laying in bed,just laid down and started to reach for the TV and we heard what sounded like an entire kitchen of forks, utensils, glass, cups, all very identifiable sounds. (Everyone knows what forks sound like hitting the ground) However, we weren’t startled, we had a cat, and thought she had just knocked over a ton of stuff. Upon inspection, nothing was disturbed. We covered the house, even the attic and outside; we’d even thought maybe someone had dumped stuff in our outside trashcan (it was empty still from the day before pickup) — We laid back down in bed, and I don’t think we talked for an hour. Was very hard to digest. We know both what we heard.

  8. This has happened to me to. i was in my room at about 5 in the afternoon and i heard a loud crash that sounded like it was right in front of my door. i got up with a knife because I thought there was someone else in the house, but there was absolutely NOTHING out of place. i searched the house 3 times, even the attic, and still didn’t find anything out of place. When I found my dog she was hiding in my parents closet whimpering and scared. (she doesn’t like loud noises like fireworks)I still have no idea what made the noise.

  9. This morning at about 5:15 i heard a loud crash in my bedroom that woke me up. Everything in my room was shaking. Nothing broke though. So i ran into my moms room and told her about it but she said she didnt hear anything and my dog didnt react so we just blew it off and i went back to bed. When i woke up later on there was a pile of stuff next to my pillow. There was tape, lotion, a necklace, and my markers just sitting next to my head. We have had other things happen to us my whole life. Even when we buy a brand new house we had problems. We burn sage every few months to keep it under control.

  10. This has happened to my wife and I as well. It was Winter of 2007 and there had been an ice storm causing us to lose power. My wife was pregnant at the time and we ended up at my parents’ house. We were without power for several days and at night, we would sleep in the den by the fireplace. I’m a very heavy sleeper and when my wife told me after the first night about the noises she’d heard the night before (which I slept through), I dismissed it as something to do with the weather. The house that my parents lived in at the time was an unusual-looking house for the area and also had a reputation for being haunted. So much so, it is still referred to by the locals as the “the Spanish mansion” or “the haunted Spanish mansion”. We had stayed with my parents before and although there had been a few strange experiences, (a dog getting locked in a bedroom, voices in another room when no one else is around, a porch light with a mind of its own) I was never actually “afraid” of the place. To be honest I always kind-of enjoyed it. Then the next night rolled around. Same set-up; us sleeping in the floor of the den, my brother asleep on the couch. I had been asleep for about an hour when my wife woke me up and whispered “it’s happening again.” The adjoining room to the den was actually the front of the house which was seldom used. It was acually a living room with an adjoining dining room and the sounds coming from that part of the house that night sounded like hell with the lid off. It literally sounded like someone had taken a china cabinet (or the sofa) and slammed it down on the floor with all their might, hard enough to rattle the floor where we were sleeping. This happened twice more that night and more frequently over the course of the next two days. The next evening, we were all gathered in the same den (this time with my parents) and we told them about what had happened the night before and they were completely unsurprised. Turns out that this had been going on for quite some time and both my parents had experienced it and had yet to find what was causing it. Anyway, that’s been over seven years ago. My parents moved out of the house later that year and over the course of the month they were moving, the mysterious noises became more and more frequent. My wife and I never stayed another night in that house after the ice storm and we still talk about it from time to time. The house is still there and over the last few years I’ve talked to other people who have lived there and everyone has some sort of story to share about their time spent in the house. Some are believable, others just flat-out illogical, but after my own experiences, it’s hard to rule anything out. I’ll probably never get an answer on it, but it is comforting to see that other people have had similar experiences

  11. I have been experiencing very loud crashes in my house for the last 6 months. We bought this house new 11 years ago. My husband passed away last August and we never experienced anything before his death. I was in the living room watching tv and I heard a loud crash in the bedroom and I thought something really bad happened. My little dog was back in the bedroom, she likes to get in my closet for the shoes, and I thought she had gotten into something. So, I started back to the bedroom and here comes my little dog ‘rickety split’ down the hall, scared to death. I went back to the bedroom and nothing was out of place. Yesterday while in the living room I and my little dog heard a very loud crash in the kitchen, sounding like china, kitchen utensils and pots and pans had crashed to the floor. I honestly thought one of my kitchen cabinets had fallen off of the wall and landed on the floor. I expected to see a mess on the floor when I went in there, but nothing was out of place. My little dog was frightened too. It has happened in my dining room and in my entrance hall. I thought the large chandelier had fallen. But nothing was out of place. What could be causing these loud crashes? Is it atmospheric, paranormal or what? I don’t believe in the paranormal, or ‘ghosts’, but there has to be an explanation. I have been ignoring them, but at night, sometimes it sounds like something slaps my wall in the bedroom. Needless to say, I sleep with the light on. My little dog sleeps with me and she hears it to. It is not in my head, she hears all of it, too. I’ve been trying to ignore it, but decided to find out if anyone else has experienced it also. There has got to be an explanation for all of this! I’m sure there is an easy answer for it. Would love to know if anyone could help. Should I have the house blessed? I’m not sleeping that we’ll anymore! Thanks, Mary Miller
