PostSubject: Clophill Church   Sun Jun 21, 2009 7:36 pm

Hi All

Here is a idea for outdoor investigation in Bedforshire.

The ruins of the church on Clophill are around 400 years old. St Mary’s church was abandoned in 1848 when a Victorian replacement was build in the centre of the nearby village.
Local folklore has some interesting tales as to why the church was left and a new one built.

One rumour suggests that the church was the wrong way around, facing away from God instead of towards God. It was said that this error had forced the church into becoming a holy building for Satan rather than God.

The church is believed to have been built on top of a leper hospital which was run by monks.
The church is sometimes described as being on Deadman’s Hill. This is not correct as Deadman’s Hill is by the A6 road rather than Clophill Village.

Some of the confusion of the church’s location relates to a horrible murder in 1961 when Michael Gregsten was killed at Deadman’s Hill. James Hanratty was found guilty of the murder and hanged. Many believe that Hanratty was innocent.
There have been reported incidents of satanic rituals at Clophill. In 1963 the grave of an apothecary’s wife was broken into, bones removed and placed in a ritual formation in what was once the nave of the church. Bones where again taken from the graveyard on the hill in 1969 and once again ritualistically arranged.

Hauntings
There a number of reported sightings associated with Clophill Church. Many visitors report a chilly and oppressive atmosphere at the church even during warm days.
Visitors report watching a faint light moving up the hill and towards the ruins of the church before vanishing.

The ghost of a monk has been sighted at Clophill Church.

Hi elf

I am considering going there this weekend.I spoke to a friend of mine a few days ago who went there a few years ago.

They witnesses a group of hooded figures walking towards the church.Whether they were ghostly monks or black magic practitioners but they didnt stay long enough to find out due to the need for a fast run to there car.


Let us know what you find

Hi guys, i used to live about 20 mins drive from this place and have visited it quite a few times. Personally i have never experienced anything happening there, mainly because everytime we go there in the early hours there are always large groups of kids there drinking. You do get a really cold eerie feeling there though and there is alot of history behind it! Would love to see it investigated properly.

Hi Guys

Well the black magic practitioners sounds an interesting one , that wouldn't surprise me to be honest , we have alot of that on dartmoor , around burrator there is an old ruin of a house with a big stone slab and sometimes you will find dead sheep laying on the slab , that can be quite off putting sometimes .

but sounds like its worth having a look.

regards
ian
