Last week the team ventured to the druids temple in north Yorkshire to investigate its ghostly goings on which have been reported by visitors from far away, which choose to visit this truly stunning location.

Joined by mark smith and his partner from “paranormal-x” this was sure to be an interesting night.

Upon arrival mark did a live stream on his youtube to start with. this was a very interesting live stream, we got no mention of druids which we would expect to be mentioned but we did get multiple references to witches, which we found strange because we are not aware of any witches here. but that doesn’t mean that there cant be any!

After marks live video we started the second live stream on ghosts of Britain Facebook.

Investigators of Project-reveal ghosts of britain: Lee Steer, Phil, Linzi, Aimee, Hollie. Paranormal x: Mark Smith and Nicky. 

this is where we had an experiment to try out, which i personally haven’t attempted before. and it sure did make some people laugh 😉

upon the start of the live stream we got a few of our names mentioned on the ITC “ghost box” it also seemed to open up by saying HI to begin with. later through the night we ventured into the stone circle where the signal wasn’t great, we got a few more responses saying witches which was very interesting.

It was then time to start the experiment, which was to dress up as a OCCULTIST, and use a modified version of the DEVILS TOY BOX, This place is allaged to be a place to worship the devil for people so it seemed a good place to try it. i didn’t inform everyone what i was going to do so it was a little bit of a shock to them.

Wearing a white mask, and a long black robe with the hood up. sure did look spooky and scary and certainly it would be how a occultist would look. without the Adidas trainers 😉

I quickly ran up the hill to the right of the stones, and got changed and started to slowly walk down to the circle very slow. trying to build up a “feeling” this kind of method is called the Singapore theory, which is a way to try to either “make the spirits feel more at home to communicate” or to “antagonise them” knowing i am not an occultist so it will anger them.

When i reached the bottom, i slowly walked into the centre and the beauty of been live i knocked the cable of the spirit box which was connected to the devils toy box. improving alittle i kicked the devils toy box. making it feel i didnt want it there. i walked into the distance into the cave area and picked up a toy demons / pigs head. and as about to throw it onto the ground. the ITC said HEAD. and at one point it said death one of the team said. nothing much happened after with the experiment.

Aimee decided we have a few mins of silence without talking or doing anything each choosing a stone to stand at. after our few mins of silence we all came back into the centre and shared our thoughts and what we heard.

With all of our thoughts it was clear we all heard something, lee and mark heard the same thing and the girls on the other side heard the same thing but described it differently. it was like a rumble which we was sure wasn’t anyone around us.

the next day i woke up to see at 11.14pm north yorkshire had an earth quake. was it that what we heard? we dont know but it was sure interesting. here is the live video.

Highgate Cemetery, London – ‘The Highgate Vampire’

By Charlene Lowe Kemp

no

Many rumours and stories of a dark figure haunting the north London cemetery began after a group of teenagers, who took an interest in the occult, started roaming the abandoned graveyard.
One member of the group named David Farrant, spent the night in the cemetery on December 21, 1969. Two months later he wrote to the Hampstead and Highgate Express about a sighting he encountered of a paranormal shadowy grey figure.
Soon after this, many other people began informing the local paper, claiming to have witnessed all kinds of creepy and scary activity there, including a figure in a pond, a tall man wearing a hat and a ghostly cyclist.

Following the reports, another man called Sean Manchester stated he believed ‘a King Vampire of the Undead’ – a medieval nobleman who had participated in black magic in Romania – was brought to England in a coffin during the eighteenth century.
The ‘vampire king’ was apparently buried in the same burial grounds, that later became as Highgate Cemetery.  Sean Manchester claimed that modern-day Satan worshippers had awoken him.

Mary Hart, who, according to urban legend, haunts Evergreen Cemetery after she was accidentally buried alive in 1872.

Her gravestone reads:
“At high noon just from, and about to renew her daily work, in her full strength of body and mind, Mary E. Hart, having fallen prostrate remained unconscious, until she died at midnight October 15, 1872 — born December 16, 1824.”
The tale goes at 48 years old, Mary E. Hart, as she was known in life, just dropped to the floor one day at midnight. Believing to be dead, her family had her buried at Evergreen Cemetery.  However, one night her aunt had a terrible nightmare that Mary was not actually dead.
The aunt eventually convinced the family to exhume the body, and when they open the coffin, they found Mary’s nails bloodied from scratching and a petrified look on her face. It is believed that Hart may have suffered a stroke and when she fell to the floor, her family believed she was dead and So they buried her, not realizing she was still alive.
The epitaph on her gravestone offers a foreboding warning in bold black text: “The people shall be troubled at midnight and pass away.” Some believe anybody caught in the graveyard after midnight or who desecrates her grave would die shortly thereafter. While the quote is from the Book of Job in the Old Testament and, in context, is a statement about being resigned to fate, some locals over the years have interpreted the phrase to mean Hart hated the world enough for burying her alive to curse it with her final epitaph.
Hart’s gravestone is at the back of the cemetery, on the path that parallels the iron fence that separates the graveyard from Winthrop Avenue, with many people coming to visit, leaving coins and wondering whether the myths and tales are true.

Chapel of Bones – Portugal

By Charlene Lowe Kemp

Capela dos Ossos, also known as the chapel of Bones, is located next to the church of St. Francis in the medieval Portuguese town of Evora. 

The 16th century chapel is a large room which the walls are filled with the bones of over 5,000 monks. Evora, in the 16th century, had around 43 cemeteries, that took up to much land. The decision was made to destroy some of the cemeteries so the corpses of 5,000 monks was exhumed in a effort to save their souls from condemnation. These bones was sent to Capela dos Ossos. The exisiting monks soon realised that it would be better if they displayed the bones rather than hide them. So they set about creating a place for meditation, a place where the undeniable reminder of death would help people transcend the material world.

When you enter the chapel you will see the words

“Nos ossos que aqui estamos, pelos vossos esperamos.” 

“We, the bones that are here await yours.”

Wrote on the door, a reminder that death happens to everyone giving people the perspective before they enter the chapel to prey. 

The corpse of a women and a child hang from a wall, no body knows who they are but legend has it that a powerful man had onced cursed them. They was refused burial in the local cemeteries so the corpses received shelter from the chapel.

The Sunken Church 

Charlene Lowe Kemp

The Sunken Church is located in Bramcote in Nottingham in the UK. The Domesday Book records a settlement here in ‘Bruncote’ and a simple wooden structure is likely to have orginally been here before the rebuild in stone. Now only stands the tower as a new church was built and parts of the old church was used to construct the new but it was agreed that the tower would be preserved to house some memorials. Within the tower the timber frame of 1586 in still insit. It is known by locals as the sunken church but no body knows why…only people can assume that from afar away it appears to look as though it is sinking into the ground.

It is reputed to be haunted by a phantom monk. In 1978 the village policeman witnessed a strange figure in the churchyard. He observed it until it stopped by a gravestone, at which he then shone his torch towards it. The light from the torch shrone straight through the shadow and on to the gravestones behind it.

Then the figure began to approach the policeman in a gliding like motion. The policeman walked closer the shadow stopped and again retreated to a gravestone. By this time the policeman had radioed his inspector who came out to assist, they searched the area but could not find anyone. 

The policeman described the figure as wearing a black ankle length coat and wearing some sort of three cornered hat. With a high collar pulled underneath It. He was unable to see a face.

Shortly after his experience an elderly local gentleman came forward who believed that what had been seen was the ghost of a phantom coachman. He explained that many years ago a female servant in the village was killed by a coachman. The coachman was sorry for his crime, so sorry that he committed suicide before he could be arrested, somewhere in the vicinity of the sunken church. His ghost is often mistaken for that of a monk, and was also witnessed by another two policemen on another night as they drove near the church……
