    I am constantly hearing what I can best describe as thumping in my house.
    It sounds like it's coming from the ceiling but can't pinpoint exactly.
    It's a new build house I moved into last September but have only started hearing these banging sounds since about 4 weeks ago.
    I thought it was the neighbours at first but it's not.
    The bangs are often in a pattern as well.
    2am the other morning I timed it. 4, 5, or 6 bangs every 2 mins. Sometimes really loud.
    It sounds like someone is upstairs banging.
    It isn't timber expanding or contracting or pipes knocking as they wouldn't make that sound.
    Just typing this now it's been banging pretty much non stop.
    I have no clue what it is or where it's coming from.
    Any help or info welcome.
    It's driving me mad!

    Call a priest.

    Can you record the noise on your phone or some other device and upload it?

    I am beginning to think I have some unknown entity in my house

    I have a small video but it won't let me upload.
    See this link;

    You will need to turn the volume up quite loud as it was recorded with my phone.

    The first floor the noise is less, third floor is barely noticeable.
    It's more noticeable when downstairs, but sounds like it's coming from upstairs, but going upstairs it sounds like it's coming from downstairs!
    Which makes me believe it's coming from above the ceiling/beneath the floor.
    It's really difficult to pinpoint.

    Had a similar situation around here years ago

    Generally Intersperced with religious chanting

    Oh God
    Or
    Oh my god

    Put it down to a couple of religious cranks involved in some type of intimate perverse ceremony
