    It would show the cistern is letting water into the toilet allowing the float valve to keep topping up, sometimes they can make a noise.

    Okay, so I tried all suggestions.
    I turned the main water supply off and drained the water from all taps and toilets and left it off for hours.
    I cut all electricity to the house.
    I sat in complete silence and I was still hearing the banging.
    I'm bewildered as to what it could be.

    I have asked them already. They don't hear anything they say.

    There could be a logical explanation or there may be no explanation !

    We once had large heavy bangs so loud the floor vibrated .....you'd run upstairs expecting something large had fallen over .....nothing.

    Mother in law there here alone once reported a loud bang ....nothing amiss.

    Once worked at a large industrial plant this rugby player a big lad was working alone one night and someone tapped him on the shoulder he turned round expecting to see a workmate ...nothing shrugged it off .......turned round continued working and it happened again.....he sprinted out of there !

    Two years ago working at a house where no one was at home a tremendous loud bang from upstairs when the customer got home told them they went upstairs nothing.

    Psycharatrist customer told me they'd bought this house 1600's where we were .......she heard medieval singing outside when she asked the neighbours who it was as she was a amateur opera singer and would like to chat with them, she was told there was no one in this cluster of half a dozen houses that could, sing like that
    She was eventually told the hard nosed buisness people they'd bought the house ftom had had a priest round half a dozen times !

    Readers decide for yourselves I'm merely passing on stuff I've come across.

    I'm beginning to think I have some unknown entity in my house. But why it's taken 10 months to be noticed I've no idea.
    This is a brand new house by the way.
    I have come to the realisation I will just have to grin & bear it & hope I get accustomed to it to the point I 'block it out'.

    Was the house built on a cemetery?

    No. But there used to be allotments many years ago on which these houses were built. Only a small piece of land - just 5 houses here.

    What about the wind?

    Could it be blowing something above the ceiling?
