QUEST TWENTY THREE: NORTHUMBRIA, TEESDALE AND SCOTLAND.

  • HIGH FORCE WATERFALL
  • RABY CASTLE
  • ST ANDREW’S CHURCH

DAY ONE: So on Thursday the 29th of June we set off from Cambridge to embark on another quest. After a long yet pleasant journey we arrived at  Middleton in Teesdale which was to be our base for the next four nights. The area we stayed at was outstanding in its beauty, with rolling hills, wild rivers and ancient buildings, so we knew that lots was waiting for us to discover.

HIGH FORCE WATERFALL NEAR BARNARD CASTLE, COUNTY DURHAM: This magnificant waterfall has been a popular tourist attraction for many year now, but what folks do not realise is that it is also a sacred Templar site. This is truly an amazing spectacle of nature with immense power not to be underestimated. There is a very pretty forest walk down to the waterfall which passes through lush greenary and ancient trees. When one sees the waterfall one simply stops in awe, wondering how many gallons of water gush over the edge and into the river below, every minute. The ‘Templar’ energy is amazing and anyone on the ‘path’ can not fail to pick up on it. From everywhere though, many ‘guardians’ keep watch over their secret treasures…

 

The walk down to the waterfall was lush and verdant and full of ancient ‘energies’ including the watching ‘guardians’ keeping watch over treasures of old…. <click to enlarge all photos>

We crossed an ancient stone bridge over a bubbling stream, underwhich the guarding trolls were watching. Unwritten legend tells of Sir Lancelot secretly hiding a twentfour carat gold table under these very stone arches, where the trolls have watched throughout time…..

DAY TWO: RABY CASTLE:  Raby Castle is one of Englands finest Medieval Castles with an intriging history of valiant knights, battles fought and family intrigues pondered over, as one would well expect. So thus a whole quest dedicated to discovering more about the enigmatic and mysterious Neville Family, often known as the ‘power behind the throne’ or indeed the true royal bloodline itself. The Neville line that is of interest here on this quest was created in 1254 with the death of Isobel de Neville, whom was born in Bracepeth and who married Lord Robert Fitzmaldred from Raby, and of course whose maiden name was indeed Neville. These are ‘our’ Alek’s 18 x Great Grandparents.

Their son, Lord Robert Fitzrobert changed his name by deed poll upon the death of his mother, to his mother’s name of Neville. Lord Robert de Neville, born in Raby, County Durham, 1240 – 1271 whom reached 31 years of age is ‘our’ Alek’s 17 x Great Grandfather. It is important to note that in 1033, Earl Maldred MacCrinnan, 1015 – 1045, moved from Dunbar. East Lothian to Raby, Countu Durham and is Alek’s 23 x Great Grandfather. His brother was Duncan, King of Scotland, 1001 – 1040)

The castle is set amidst a vast landscaped estate, where herds of deer roam; with beautiful walled gardens and associated buidings near the main entrance. It was a damp but warm day when we arrived and the blooms in the garden were magnificant. Around the far side of the castle, the opposite side to the entrance are two landscaped ‘ponds’ which when viewed at a certain angle give the wonderful appearance of a moat.

We filmed a short video below from just outside the gardens where Alek explained more on the Neville lineage and his own connection to it.

RABY CASTLE: NORTHUMBRIA

Although we were unable to roam freely inside the castle on this occasion, we were able to tag onto a tour and take some non-flash shots. Athough the tour mainly concentrated on the current owners of the castle, mentions were made of the Nevilles of the past, so we were able to pick up extra info as we toured around the vast rooms and many corridoors.

In this very room (above) plots and deals were made, including famously, the plot to overthrow the then false queen, Elizabeth the first. Seven hundred knights in full armour, assembled in this very room to swear allegiance and their blood oaths to the rightful royal boodline, the Nevilles. Sadly, as history tells, the throne never made it back into the Neville hands and the crown wrongly took the castle for it’s own and later gave it to the Barnard family. Thus the history of this country was forever changed and the throne has remained in the wrong hands ever since. The Nevilles were somewhat appeased by an offering of land and dwellings in farther off lands, well away from those ‘who would be king’. But history and time has a way of working things out and the ‘mighty’ always fall… But how i wished i had been a fly on the wall to witness those seven hundred knights in full armour in readyness for duty…..

 

 

ST ANDREW’S CHURCH: BISHOP AUCKLAND: St Andrew’s Church is  fine Grade One listed building; a living church carrying on the long tradition of proclaiming the gospel to folks of each and every generation. St Andrews is cruciform in shape and is said to be the largest parish church in the Diocese of Durham. It is believed that the current church is the third to occupy this site. The first dated from 650AD, and the second 1100AD, housing monks expelled from Durham. This present church was built almost seven hundred and fifty years ago, in around 1274AD as a Collegiate Church, with a dean, twelve canons and the same number of vicars.

St Andrew’s church hides a great and wondrous surprise; a very ancient ‘Celtic’ cross; far the oldest in this country in fact, the origins of which go back to ancient Sumeria. It is situated under the tower at the west of the nave and incorparated into it are, what is said to be, large fragments of Saxon stonework. The carvings on the cross depict tales of Nergal and the underworld, the ouroborous, the archer and mythical beasts, including the Bennu Bird. The ‘so called’ human figures carved on the cross with very long fingers, bear a remarkable resemblance to bodily remains recently discovered.

 

St Andrew’s Church and the beautiful Celtic Cross with Alek and Martin examining it in full detail.

Martin who let us into the church was very interested and soaked up all Alek had to share. See the churches own interpretaion on the cross here:- “While it was difficult to discover much about the church or the real origins of the Celtic Cross from the internet , i did find this description (click on the link below) which was about as detailed as i could get. Meanwhile please enjoy my own selection of photos below. As with most of these sacred objects from the past, the cross did emanate an amazing ‘energy’ and one could not help being drawn towards it”

https://www.york.ac.uk/teaching/history/pjpg/cross.pdf

The carvings on the cross certainly have a feeling of death and rebirth about them.

In the church are to be found connections to the Neville bloodline; Alek’s own family line. One of the stained glass windows clearly shows the Neville Shield and the effigy of the ‘Unknown Knight’ and ‘Unknown Lady’ could pssibly have very strong connections to the Neville lineage; thus an important reasons for visiting this church. See photos below…

<click on images to enlarge>

Also of interest, in the south, is a holy water stoup (see below) commemorating Bishop Robert Neville whose coat of arms it bears; discovered in the churchyard in 1850 and believed to have been adapted from a Roman altar, probably taken in the ruins of Vinovia. So an interesting church indeed with some very significant ‘finds’ within it…

 

Points to consider on the Neville Lineage:

  • The Neville Estate covers a vast amount of land in the area visited here indicating prominence, importance and wealth for the times.
  • The Nevilles of interest on this quest are: Isobel de Neville, who gave birth to the Neville lineage upon her death, when her son used her name rather than his father’s. He then became  Lord Robert de Neville.
  • The ‘Unknown Knight’ (The Earl of Raby, Earl Ralph) and the ‘Unknown Lady’ (his wife) of St Andrews Church, are now revealed to be of the Neville lineage also, as is Bishop Robert Neville, whos coat of arms is in the church.
  • There is a connection to the chapel in Raby Castle, St Andrew’s Church and Escombe Saxon Church (more to come later on this church)

Quest Number Fifteen: Hertfordshire

  • Little St Mary’s Church: Cold Christmas Lane Thundridge
  • All Saint’s Church Datchworth, near Thundridge

So another exciting night time foray found us once again in the Hertfordshire countryside. As we have learnt, so many ancient churches are to be found miles away from modern day highways and this trip was no exception; literally right off the beaten track and only accessible via grassy footpaths and byways. We had to park the car miles away, down a dead end, not knowing which path to take or which way to turn. The night was dark, which did not help and we were guided by just the light of the moon and a few torches. After one false start and driving off in a completely different direction, we gained our bearings and eventually found the site we were looking for. The site opens out beyond the trees and bushes of the byway, causing one to almost stumble upon it; but what a site to behold indeed. One walks through the open area and graveyard to reach the church, which in the cover of darkness almost looms upon one unexpectedly from the gloom. It was crisp clear night, with moonlight marred only by persistent chemtrailers dong their deeds under cover of darkness. The energies of the site are very similar to another site of an earlier quest; that of Santon Downham – almost, if not, identical; hinting at the fact that both sites are on the very same energy alignment.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thundridge

Little St Mary’s Church or Cold Christmas Church: as it is locally known, due to its proximity to Cold Christmas Lane, as said took some finding in the dark, but it was well worth all our efforts. Sadly all that is left of the building these days is the bell tower, which is now boarded up due to ‘health and safety’ reasons; so a great shame we could not get inside. A very old building indeed built in 1086 for the private use of the estate and family of Hugh De Desmaisnil. There are many rumours of the church being built on a North/South alignment instead of on an East/West. Many medieval churches were built this way which was said to be the sign of the devil, which is why it was later demolished. In fact it is known that the site is indeed used for satanic worship and gatherings, and when you view our videos you will see proof of this fact. It did in fact look very magical in the moonlight and very compelling. The original church was demolished in 1853 but much of the graveyard remains to be explored. One unusual epitaph in the graveyard for one Roger Gadiner and his wife reads:

“Roger lies here before his hour

Thus doth the Gardiner lose his flower”

Photos taken on the night, around the graveyard and tower; please click on individual images to enlarge. The last two in the sequence do show ‘Light Orbs’ and a mysterious mist.

The extensive graveyard is very much in evidence here, though i suspect that like all ancient graveyards quite a few of the headstones are no longer where they were originall placed and some have fallen into quite bad disrepair. There are even reports of a mausoleum being here and that mass buriel graves lie under where the old church once stood and indeed one of our investigation team thought he actually saw the mausoleum upon first entering the site. The most paranormal activety is said to occur in and around the old church tower; activity such as growlings coming from the old tower itself, which have been reported as recently as 2009 and a sense of an ‘evil’ pressence, a figure in black has also been spotted on many occasions around the graveyard and in 1978, a report of a marching army coming out of the dorrway of the tower whilst letting out a blood-curdling roar…  Also ghost horses have been reported and recordings of strong EVP have been captured.

Sadly we did not manage to capture anything unusual on camera, but all of our investigation team experienced different feelings and sensations at different times and the energies, although fluctuating were indeed very strong. Some of us certainly saw Light Orbs in the trees at the boundary of the graveyard, which we have manged to just about capture on camera, albeit by mobile phone; it was certainly a feeling of being observed. Some of us picked up on more tangible happenings and one of our team, actually had physical interaction by way of her clothes and skin being touched. So all in all, extremely interesting and well worth the trip and getting lost for!

COLD CHRISTMAS CHURCH: PART ONE

COLD CHRISTMAS CHURCH: PART TWO

 

All Saint’s Church Datchworth: So a few miles down the road in the same Hertfordshire vincinity we found ourselves at the parish church in the village of Daxworth and this time most certainly not off the beaten track! The village of Daxworth  appears in the Anglo-Saxon charter of 969 when King Edgar gave land in Daxworth to St Peter’s Church, Wesminster and when the name of Datchworth was spelt Decewrthe; the village is also mentioned in the Domesday book of 1086.

One can read more of the history of Datchworth here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Datchworth

On this occasion though it was the church we were visiting; Norman in origin, it was erected within the confines of the moat and subsequently a manor house was built nearby and it is thought that an earlier church did in fact preceded the present one. The night was dark and cold but strangely on this occasion the church and surroundings seemed quite calm and with a lack of energies really; even though the village has the reputation of being the most haunted in Hertfordshire.The church was well lit with floodlights and had CCTV clearly in evidence, which would be a good thing as i imagine that many visitors and investigators visit the church and graveyard here. As said it was peaceful, cold and subdued when we were there, but an interesting experience non the less, wandering the graveyard at night and around the vincitity of the church.

See above for the video shot around the graveyard and church.

There have been several sightings of an old woman dressed in black walking with a hunch and no head. She is thought to be the spirit of an old woman whoes husband died unexpectedly and in as deperate attempt to meet her husband again she hung herself. Close to the church is a narrow lane called Rectory Lane and people wandering along this eerie hedge-lined lane at night have heard phantom footsteps and seen the ghostly apparition of a cart carrying dead bodies, which local believe to be the bodies of the Eaves family who tragically starved to death during the famine of 1762.  One of the houses along Hollybush Lane is said to be haunted by the ghost of a lady with long red hair; this flame headed spirit is said to wear brigh clothing and manifest at the sound of tinkling bells. These are just a few of the many hauntings of Datchworth Village.

We did manage to obtain a few night-time shots via a mobile; on two or three shots white orbs of light can be seen; however with the flood lights in the graveyard i will leave it up to the viewer to make up their own minds. As always click on an image to enlarge:

THE PRIORY INVESTIGATES: QUEST NUMBER ELEVEN

THE GARDEN OF ENGLAND

  • St Peter and St Paul’s Church Seal
  • St George’s Church Wrotham
  • St Nicholas’ Church Pluckley

An early morning start found us on quest number eleven and on our way to Kent; commonly known as ‘The Garden of England’ and one can certainly see why, as once off the ‘beaten track’ one is in wooded countryside, pretty little villages and amongst rolling chalk downs – a taste of ‘Old England’ to be sure and a lovely place to be for a day of questing.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seal,_Kent

ST PETER AND ST PAUL: SEAL. Our first stop of the day was this small medieval church, a grade one listed building, in the village of Seal,  just outside Sevenoaks. The church was built in 1243 upon the grounds of a former Saxon church and burial ground. It is a very quiet spot with stunning views right across the north downs. There is altogether a lovely peaceful feel to the church and graveyard; yet upon entering the church itself, many surprises await the eagle eyed Craft explorer, for this is a very Masonic driven English church…

A very peaceful and picturesque setting with stunning view across the downs <click on all photos for a larger view>

On entering St Peter and Paul church, one can see straight away over the main doorway, the figure of Boaz, from the two biblical figures; the two pillars, while inside the porch itself and the entrance are placements upon the windows of very masonic symbols; the square and compass, the tau within the philosophers stone, the keys, the sword (logos), emblems of blood sacrifice and blood letting and within the church itself many references to, and symbols of the Raised (third) Degree icluding the skull and crossbones.

Let Alek our head researcher show you around and explain all the meaning of the Masonic symbolism for you (apologies for the noises from the wind outside)

ST PETERS & ST PAULS CHURCH: SEAL KENT

In 1874 a female apparition (Djinn) with a pair of garden ‘loppers’ was recorded as being seen frantically chopping the bushes in the graveyard, while in 1263 a faceless monk was seen from the now blocked over window, looking outwards. In 2015 a Seal man named Paul Gevauxx was jailed for commiting a double stabbing. One wonders just how these kind of incidents occur and what could have provoked someone to carry out such a crime as this… We ourselves (our team) whilst in the church experienced a few ‘happenings’ sadly not on camera though; seeing white lights near the organ, various loud bangings/thumpings and a white light near the original doorway.

See our second video link to explain further about St Peter and Paul Church

ST PETERS & ST PAULS CHURCH: SEAL KENT

 

St Peter and St Paul: A church  full to the brim with Masonic symbolism

The ‘family lines’  we were particularly researching today in Kent were:

  • Richard Neville 1674
  • Catherine Turner 1716
  • Robert Neville 1714
  • Anne Neville 1679

As shared in the above clip there ocurred a subsequent ‘family’ migration to Shipdham in Norfolk, where of course we have previously quested at.

ST GEORGES CHURCH: WROTHAM. The church is located on the ‘north’ side of a small square in Wrotham village, but sadly on this occasion the church doors to this little late Saxon/early Norman period church were not open to us, due to extensive electrical wiring renovations being carried out. The church was founded in 946 AD by Richard de Wrotham. We stayed awhile though strolling aroung the burial ground at the church itself and also the second graveyard just over the road, where many beautiful celtic crosses can be seen; obviously again carrying their fare share of Templar and Masonic symbols, as can also be seen around the outside of the church. The ‘family’name associations to be discovered here are as that in Seal, Kent.

http://www.kentarchaeology.org.uk/01/03/WRO.htm

Some of the beautiful Celtic crosses and other ‘non christian’ sybolism to be found in the pretty setting of St George’s Church in Wrotham.

By way of an introduction and a record of our visit, even though we were unable to gain entry, we did make a very short video – see below:

ST GEORGE CHURCH: ROTHERAM KENT

ST NICHOLAS: PLUCKLEY. This church, which is also a grade one listed building and is situated in the picturesque vilage of Pluckley, has been on the site in some form or other since Saxon times; the present church being some 900 years old, with Pluckley being a name of Saxon origin and record of the monks of Cantebury actually recording a church being here in 1090. As the village is so pretty and typically English one can totally see why the TV series ‘The Darling Buds of May’ was mostly filmed in and around this village.

The inside of St Nicholas showing the many brasses to be found on the floor, but especially pay attention to the beautiful ‘prophetic’ window with tellings of our earth’s future….

Of course the village and church does now have the infamous reputation of being the most haunted church and village in England; whether true or not or just folklore tales, one as usual has to make up ones own mind on the matter. The village though, certainly does attract its fair share of ‘ghost hunters’, especially on nights such as Halloween/Samhain. Among the ‘ghosts’ seen or recorded here are ‘The Highwayman’, The sounds of a ‘horse drawn’ coach, a gypsy woman or watercress woman, a ‘red’ lady and a ‘white’ lady and a monk; these are just a few of the many sightings recorded here so one can only assume that the Djinn are in proliferation here; maybe protecting much more than meets the eye… While we ourselves were here, we did experience a mysterious woman and a dog entering the church and then leave, but as the video below explains, Alek who was outside at the time, just near the door, witnessed no one what so ever entering or leaving the church….

http://www.mysteriousbritain.co.uk/england/kent/hauntings/pluckley.html

So while most visitors are seeking verification of ‘hauntings’ they are of course missing the whole point of why this church is really here; the reason why all the churches we are visiting are where they are, ie the placement of pyramids within the earth. From the actual church’s themselves, especially this one today; the real truths of existence and of life on this planet are here for all to see… The overiding theme of the day, from the churches we visited certainly seemed to revolve around blood sacrifice, blood letting and blood offerings; of offerings and the taking of ‘energy’ as told within the designs of the stained glass windows; presenting us with a lesser know yet true tale of ‘The Jesus’ and whom he really was; his true origins and the customs of his kin and how they fit into the ‘jigsaw’ of life on earth. We also see a future time in relation to this so called planet, spread out before us upon the magnificant window, messages from the past for all to decipher…

See the video link of this amazing and very special window to find out more:

ST NICHOLAS CHURCH: PLUCKLEY KENT

There were a couple of ‘hidden’ rooms, above the entrance porch and in the bell tower area which we did wonder about; why were they closed, why no public access? That was a bit of a mystery to us… then sadly before we had finished filming and taking our photographs, the present day ‘Keeper of the Keys’ arrived on the scene at this point in time, to lock up. However before she bade us farewell she did mention that the ‘hidden’ rooms were being refurbished as a visitors diaplay and historical centre, which was useful to know. Thus then our research for the day was cut abruptly short, though thankfully we had enough to gain much knowledge and insight.

See our Youtube link to the last video of the day at St Nicholas, Pluckley where more symbolism is revealed….

ST NICHOLAS CHURCH: PLUCKLEY KENT

The Days Thoughts and Conclusions….

  1. We know that the churches on the sites we are investigating are full of Masonic symbolism, but where did these symbols originate from in the first place?
  2. Why are the churches built upon sites where underground ‘secrets’ need to be kept buried from the people of the lands?
  3. We know that the ‘Djinn’ are very much in attendence at these sights but are they protecting or hiding something?
  4. We have learnt today of the exsistence of The Kolbrin bible and of the truths that it contains and the fact that many of the Freemasons scriptures do in fact originate from The Kolbrin.
  5. The windows are full of prophetic happenings; we saw the future history of our planet before us today bold as brass, as foretold in the Kolbrin Bible.
  6. We learnt of the truths and real life of  ‘The Jesus’;  of blood spilling, blood letting and of blood scarifice and that the giving and receiving of ‘energy’ is not what one is lead to believe.
  7. We now know that Mary Magdalene was indeed male; so what then of this realationship to The Jesus?
  8. We learnt today of the ‘family’migration from Kent to Norfolk; the ‘Nevilles’ as always being very prominent ‘players’ in our quests;  the bloodline of whom goes back as far as Enoch.
  9. All the churches of all the quests attract the inquisitve public, the ‘ghost hunters’, the ‘paranormal investigaters’ etc… etc, for all the wrong reasons. What better way then to hide a secret – hidden in the spooky tales of headless horseman, white ladies, monks, black schucks, knights, people with dogs etc… etc… Smoke and mirrors and more than a little bit of misdirection…. Perfect camoflauge to hide the truths i would say!
