Sefton Church & Lydiate Abbey

Last night was an enjoyable night for us. We ran a successful ‘ghost’ walk around Sefton Church as part of the Ghost story evening mentioned in previous posts. Lee entertained us with stories about the history of the Punchbowl and Sefton Church and their associated ‘ghosts’ Our guests used some of our equipment to explore the churchyard and our KII meter, registering electro-magnetic activity, was quite active and whatever it was registering seemed to be moving along the paths.

A couple of anomalies appeared on photographs by a guest. One, an orb hovering over a gravestone, was most likely a raindrop; the other, a strange mist over the lower half of the image seems to have been a thumb placed close to the lens and flash and causing flare across the lens.

We received a lot of positive feedback that an enjoyable evening was had by all.

After finishing up at the punchbowl, Clare, Lee, Mary and myself headed off to Lydiate Abbey to do a recce and see if it was worth organising a longer vigil there.

Clare - dowsing

Dowsing rods in the ruined chapel registered several hot spots. These were identified independently by both Clare and myself. There was also some other very interesting activity but we need to finish analysis of video footage before I can report on that. Hope to have the video clips here in a little while – so watch this space.
