It was Claire and Bekki that saw it .. and I "might" have seen it out of the corner of my eye as I was looking the other way at the time .. I saw some movement in the top corner of my eye and then when I heard Claire and Bekki squeal, I turned my head but it had gone at that point, but they were both looking at the wall where I'd saw the movement.

Have decided to put Usworth in Vol 3.

been looking at the available literature (limited) and online (mainly) sources it seems that of the investigations, the North Wales Paranormal, and the NGI stand out from the rest, and so will re-write, condense and put these in.

hope that's acceptable.

I'll pass on a copy of what I've done for approval before I finalise it.....


lots still to do...wrote a chronology of the airfield to 1946 last night and found a decent plan of Usworth to re-draw for the book.

just loads of investigation reports to rewrite.

arrrrrrrggggghhhh - in a good sort of way :D

Yeah, just rewrite as you wish Woden .. and if its better than our version we'll nick it back from you .. :mrgreen:

I've not read that report for years .. but if you have any questions about it or want anything expanding on just ask and I'll do my best to crawl through my memories.

I think Mark's passed it over to you for a peruse...may be wrong...

personally I thought the NGI version was excellent - that's why it got chosen over many others - some reports are APPALLING....space is only the reason that I have to compress things.


as it is there are loads of airfields that haven't made the 3 volumes because of word limits....shame really.

I have to visit the Neam in the next 3 or 4 weeks to get a photo - got to have a local one or two in the book....might try for M st G as well.....one of the memorial with the hotel (former Officers' Mess) in the background I think.

all good fun, must remember to pick a cold rainy day - I usually manage 8-)

ahh cold rainy day

Friday I went down to Lincs...pre arranged etc.

started raining at york at about 10 Am...stopped at Louth at about 4 pm

in the intervening and dripping time I managed Fiskerton, Wickenby, Ludford Magna, Kelstern and Metheringham airfields.
that evening was an investigation at Woodhall Spa.

the Sat was a lovely day so we did a couple of hours at Coleby Grange control Towerm then re-cisited Wiickenby.

On the way back the investigation at Tholthorpe started at 7.30 and finished at about midnight.

the temp must have been hovering close to freezing as there was freezing fog at Darlo as I came through there at about 1am on Sunday morning.

shattered from 3 investigations over a weekend but an experience not to be missed.


as soon as I get a dry day it's off to the NEAM...before the frost giants begin their yearly migration through the north of England.

getting badly in need of a break from writing up airfields

it's not so much the research and the history...but the constant conversion of gramatically incorrect, jargonated pseudo English into something that is printable that is wearing me down.

feeling very depressed about the whole thing at the moment.

sounds like you really do go into a lot of details. hows about putting it to a side for a few days and try again, or are you a person that likes to get things done and out the way??

I began writing story books since I was 16 lol, 4 on the go and still not one completed

all 4 books are different from each other, there is a real life one where I explain the first ghost I have ever seen, then the future and what research I learnt from this ghost and what I did next kinda thing, should be an interesting book, and will all be real expereinces

they sound interesting...are you thinking of publication at some time..??..are we going to be able to see them..?

me - I have to get things done - am a year in advance of deadlines (give or take) but I like lots of twiddling time to play with it..

yes I do go into a lot of detail...each entry has a chronology of the airfield to 1946, a plan of the airfield in the Second World War and as many accounts of the paranormal occurring there as my researches have uncovered....there's a bit of an anorak lurking in me.

actually its roughly what I do for every investigation - gather everything together to understand what is going on better.

anal or what.

I am hoping my books will get finished and hope to be published. The book I started when I was 16 was a story regarding wrestling, I got it finished and read through it 3 times and the words I used were so emotional I even cried at my own work (believe it or not lol.) Well I left it on my old 'Amstrad PCW825' after getting a few replies from publishers stating that there was no interest. I thought maybe I was too young so left it. 10 years later, I booted up the machine again to print it out (to try my luck again with publishers.) but the computer would not work, and the partner who designs computers tried his hardest to get it working to no avail... the only thing left for this computer was to be put in the rubbish tip. I had lost the whole book, and yip I was gutted. years later I put pen to paper and started again. This is when I was interested in spiritual church, no one knew me and by the third visit this is when the medium came to me and said 'You typed a lot of work not so long ago, but somehow it went missing, now I have no idea what this means, but I am getting told that you are writting this out again... now nothing to worry about, your first work was good, but as you have more experience as you are older now, this will be better... if you know what I mean.' I was amazed with that message and just kept going back to church for more ;)

2nd book is kinda erotic 'master/slave' book which I got experience through role play chat rooms I used to venture into... 3rd is the one above about the real ghosty expereinces

now sitting at work, a very boring place where nothing much happened I was getting more ideas on a 4th book, I kept arguing the case that I need to get one of my 3 done first before a 4th book.. well imagination took over me and I found myself writing, 20 pages later I shook my head, the vampire book is my 4th creation.

need to get some typing done ;)

just keep persevering and don't let anyone gainsay you....

I'd concentrate on 1 book and get it finished and then hawk it around to see if there are any takers...at least then there is the knowledge of 1 book completed.

look forward to seeing Book 3


I know what it's like - I lost 80% of my stuff when a hard disc (external went down) and the backup CD wouldn't load......I nearly gave up then and there, but well I rewrote it all out of spite and was encouraged by having to do this to find a load more information.

will keep my fingers crossed that you get "Discovered"

Chris

Sorry for the very late reply.

Yes I saw something similar but it was in the Castle eden inn.
What appeared to be a dark shadow, "creeping" along the wall of a corridor where there were no windows. I saw it block out an alarm interface and we thought it was captured on camera.....on review nothing.

My self and Andrea both saw it and I got the sudden urge that we really shouldnt hang around whilst "it" was there. The one and only time I have been intimidated by something on an investigation.

The feeling was a certain, this intends nothing good. We must leave, we have to leave and I felt like I was fighting my body not to physically run. However the only way out, was past this shadow.

Oh well, weird things do happen, and this is the most unexplainable thing I have seen.

still not sure about the 3rd (real experience book) whether to add the exact ladies name who I seen... I know with my friends I have no idea who they are called so their names are changed, but for the ghost, not sure whether to keep her as she is rather then change her name, specially with her background.. ghost in question is Anne Bronte.

It was so weird in Darlington when you felt threatened and I would have been happy to have slept there.

Mind I probably didnt help trying to provoke a response!

If you're talking about that time in the loft at Darlington, I definitely felt threatened too.. Not quite enough to run, but like someone aggressive was right in my face being intimidating. As quick as it was there though, the feeling left. Very weird.

just use Anne - telling the truth but not the whole truth...then you are not going to get the detractors "oh yeah famous personage - heard it all before - yawn - why's it always famous eh..!" simple answer is that by and large it isn't famous or recorded people.

anyway.....doesn't matter to me if the personage was famous - I judge people and you seem pretty genuine to me from your responses .

theres's a book you may be inteersted in (if you can find it) entitled A Tudor Story...written by Canon W.S. Pakenham-Walsh regarding his contact with Anne Boleyn....a bit dated perhaps and in a style that would not pass for good investigative work these days - nonetheless a fascinating account.

worth a read if you can find it...as I said before - I don't know if it's still in print.

Gotta say if its the location in Darlo I think you are talking about...on our first visit there I got a feeling of intense fear from something in that area. This was coupled with the sense that something was always watching and standing by the window looking out onto the yard.
I'm not a runner....more of a come and try it sorta guy...
As a sensitive only twice have i wanted to get out of somewhere...the cellar of the Fleece in Richmond and in the underground store room in the Studio at Hartlepool.

That was one of those times that did make me move, but I guess it was just to outside that door
