QUEST TWENTYSIX: IRELAND:

Day Three: The Giants Causeway: Three wonderful days had already passed and time was indeed flying by in Ireland; we had travelled many miles northwards today, two miles from Busmills village in county Antrim, to one of the many stretches of coastline very near to Scotland and to the very mysterious place known as The Giants Causeway; a place of many legends and tales; see links below:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant%27s_Causeway

The wonderful and beautifully rugged coastline that surrounds the causeway in Northern Ireland is a joy to behold; the day we were there the seas and wind were amazing and certainly were displaying their natural power! This is an energetic and magical place that makes one’s heart sing! The sea roars loudly and one can make no mistake of it’s powers – the greatest giver and taker on the earth; the power and might of the ‘Walvbane’….

 

 

There are many tales of rivalry between the Irish and Scottish giants of long ago, when the world was very different from today; after all for any aspiring giant worth his own tellings, Scotland is only a mere hop, skip & a giants leap away, over to the left in fact! But be well advised to remember that giants (especially baby giants) and history are never ever what they seem to be…..

Nothing on this planet is ever what it seems, often time is the biggest secret keeper of all; unlock it’s mysteries and time will reveal all.. What beautiful yet strange shapes; natural, manmade or something else? You decide…..

 

 

The Giants Causeway; far from being natural….? <click to enlarge>

Filming at the Giants Causeway, Ireland: see link below. Again another very windy day, so lots of noise and camera wobble as i perched precariously atop these amazingly constructed columns, with my dear tutor hanging on to me while i moved around filming, to prevent me falling!
I walked much further out than i thought i would with my balance probs, and hung on to my camera for dear life!
Look closely at the very precise enginnering of the hexagonal columns and how they all fit together; truths that belong to another time and space within history…..
Scotland is just off to the right – a mere hop and a skip for any reputable giant!

Derry and St Columba’s Church: Derry today (named Londonderry by the British is a million miles away from what it was during the troubles, yet the echoes of those times still remain in areas such as the ‘Free Derry Corner’. Derry is the second-largest city  in Northern Ireland and the fourth-largest city on the island of Ireland. The name Derry is an anglicisation of the Old Irish name Daire (modern Irish: Doire) meaning “oak grove”. In 1613, the city was granted a Royal Charter by King James 1 and gained the “London” prefix to reflect the funding of its construction by the London guilds. While the city is more usually known colloquially as Derry, Londonderry is also commonly used and remains the legal name. Read more about it’s history below;  from the tourist site one can see that the city is a very vibrant and upcoming city to visit and an absolute mecca for the arts!:

Amazing, yet deeply poignant & meaningful urban street art in Derry, alluding to a time when raw passion and ideals overflowed with a desire for what was righteous. <click to enlarge – well worth it!>

St Columba’s Church: We drove around the church a couple of times before we found our access to it and a parking spot, but once there and insde the sght that grreets one upon enterng is amazing to say the lest.  St Columba’s Church, Long Tower is a Roman Catholic church in the Diocese of Derry and is located in the heart of Derry.

 

 

The outside of St Colunba’s Church, Derry

The present church is built on the site of Roman Catholic worship which goes back as far as the 12th century. The current Long Tower Church began life in 1783 in a much smaller scale than seen today. Father John Lynch, a parish priest in Derry started action to raise funds for building the Long Tower Church and he received finance not just from Roman Catholics but also Protestant people in Derry at the time. The church was opened in 1788.

 

The suptuous wood & marble interior of Derry Church <click to enlarge>

The church was extended and refurbished in 1810 with the introduction of gallery seating, nave and the changing of the Altar to the northern side of the church. The High Altar was constructed with marble and supported by four pillars. The four pillars were first made of wood put proved to be not strong enough to hold the large and heavy marble altar and so the pillars were changed to be made out of marble. The layout of the church from 1810 onwards has remained largely unaltered. However, in 1908 a full refurbishment of the Long Tower took place which included addition of new stained glass windows, statues, shrines, baptismal font and the reposition of the High Altar and the introduction of a new sacristy. The church’s refurbishment was completed in 1909 and the church was then officially opened to the general public.

 

 

The stunning works of art & treasures inside St Columba’s Church, Derry

The current parish population as of December 2015 is 6,761. The church overlooks the Catholic Bogside of Derry which has seen many instances of violence such as Bloody Sunday of 1972 and so would have been at the centre of the troubles, but this church ensures that people find peace and quiet there no matter what is going on outside the church grounds.

Three Irish Churches

  • Bloodline Connection: Takes one to the time of ‘The Troubles’ and links to ‘previous experiences’

GOING BEYOND THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR & MASONIC SYMBOLISM: On our quests around the uk and now in Ireland too, we have come to understand and acknowledge the significance and history of the vast array, and purposefully placed in time, templar and masonic symbolism. The two paths of Templarism and Free Masonry do have some commonalities within history yet are not to be confused for they are two entirely different paths. Understanding the symbols and emblems placed within time by our ancestors, the original inhabitants of this planet, can unlock the secrets to time and space and can bestow hidden knowledge upon those wishing to seek answers. Big clues to the past, present and future have been left all over the Celtic Lands and they are all just waiting to be discovered and decoded.

Here to wet your appetites are just a small selection of the symbols we discovered in Ireland; symbols which go back to our dawn of time and relate to our true ancestors; our creators. There were many Celtic Crosses too, which i have featured in part one. Many of the symbols here are extremely well-know and well-used within Craft Circles, Preceptories, Rites and Teachings etc. Those folk of the Craft path today and especially within the Priory will have the keys to decode and understand these mysterious symbols and emblems that crop up all over our planet; it is indeed a fascinating and elightening pursuit, unravelling these mysteries. A symbol can say a thousand words and can therefore replace a thousand  words, thus  crossing all language and cultural divides. Symbols can and will, when correctly interpreted speak to those of Craft whom truly seek to know.

The Neville Crest at Newport Minster

DAY FOUR: The Minster Church of St Thomas Newport: This was our second visit to this church; we had previously arrived in the freezing cold, when the the church was closed and the snow had covered all around in a white shroud, so it was welcoming to see the church in a different ‘LIGHT’. St Thomas Church is a very vibrant church full of energy and life which emanates from the folks in charge, namely The Revd Kevin Arkell and his wife. So it was well worth the wait and also for the very warm and freindly welcome afforded to us. The church is slap bang in the middle of the town in a very surburban setting and ironically (or not) just outside and across the road from a Craft building of another kind…

 

The original late 12th-century church was dedicated to St Thomas of Canterbury known as Thomas Becket (1118–1170). Later, under the rule of King Henry V111 of England, (1509–1547), when Becket was declared to have been a traitor, the Canterbury part of the name was dropped. Its name and the ambiguous dedication to St Thomas was thereafter, over time, assumed by many to refer to Thomas the Apostle. From the 18th century its deterioration made any renovation futile, and funds were raised for a new church on its site. The new church was built over the years 1854 and 1855 to a design by the architect S. W. Dawkes of Cheltenam. Reflecting the building’s history, but arguably unusual, the new church was dedicated on the feast of Thomas the Apostle to both him and St Thomas of Canterbury. The tower contains a ring of 12 bells.

Inside the church is a wealth of history and information and the church is actively setting up its own achive and history corner and can boast some amazing and historic artifacts; there is also a wealth of old photographs which are posted here. Revd. Kevin and his wife have an enthusiastic team around them who have some good projects on the go and ideas to draw in the community, children and all; so the very best of luck to them.

 

Sarrui Sarru: St Thomas’s Church has a great deal of history attached to it; it has some amazing stained glass windows that also show a wealth of past history; from the civil war, the war of the roses, the Neville line and of course the Fluer de Lys, towards the top of the window. Looking to the top we see the cross, a symbol representitive of, or a reminder that there is no such a thing as a ‘king on earth’ or ‘Sarrui Sarru’ from the ancient Sumerian meaning ‘King of Kings’;The Jesus’. A reminder then that throughout all the battles of the civil wars etc, the end result/the end game would alwayd be ‘The Jesus’….

Merkabah: One of the most detailed stained-glass windows in St Thomas’s, Newport is the second window below which shows six triskellian; three to  the left and three to the right, masked in gilted gold but right at the top of the window and clearly shown, is the Merkabah, the original symbol of christianity, re-inforcing the fact that the cross is a new addition; the Merkabah was/is the symbol used for aeons before the modern-day cross, a new addition to the christian faith, took its hold upon history and also the minds of people. If we go back to grass roots, what people think of as ‘The Star of David’, the Merkabah, is in actual fact the true representation of christianty and for very good reasons too.

 

Window one is representitive of the civil war, the war of the roses, the Neville line, the Fluer de Lys and the Sarrui Sarru. Window two shows the Merkabah, the original symbol of christianity

Museum Section: Within this section of the church are some very beautiful and ancient artifacts; a few of which can be seen here including some amazing archive photos which we were giver permision to photograph. There are also some beautiful old bibles, ancient wooden chests and a wonderful wooden carved depiction of the last supper.

 

 

<click on all images to enlarge>

The Pulpit: The pulpit is from the old church and is carved in wood and thought to be carved by Flemish craftsmen.  It is original and displays some very intricate carvings around its sides, some of which i managed to get some close ups of. It is unique insomuch that the figures carved on it are not biblical at all but are relating to the sciences and philosophies of the time. Also round the top of the pulpit is reference to the ‘trumpet’, as mentioned in the Book of Revelations; some of which have already occured….

 

The Font: There are two fonts here; the later one is shown here with carvings all around that we have become so familiar with over the course of these quests; the older of the two is to the right of the altar. When the church was rebuilt the original font was not returned with the pulpit etc, so the new font was built at the south door. Then someone came knocking on the door to say that the old font had been found in a garden in Newport and had been used as a bird bath for many years! So the church now boasts two fonts; the new one being used for major baptisms.

 

The newer font with its very symbolic and familiar carvings, the descriptions of which can be found on other quests… <click to enlarge>

Taize Service: In the evening of our daytime visit we were most fortunate to be invited back by Revd. Kevin, to a candlelit evening of chanting and meditation, a taize service, something that i had not encountered before. It sounded so lovely that we immedietly said yes. Although it was a taize servive for the christian lent, one can easily adapt it, in one’s own mind, to suit ones own path or spirituality or even to just enjoy the experience and chanting as a whole. It was a small intimate gathering; there was a small choir from the church’s own choristers attending, dressed in formal long red robes and every participant attending was invited to hold a lighted candle throughout the service.

We can all relate to the words below taken from the introduction to the taize service, whatever our faith. In The Priory, in Templarism, we do have an understanding of G-D. but from a different perspective to the christian understanding and we do not actually worship any higher being, yet have an acknowlegement of such. So a perfect end to a perfect day…

“Many trivial things in our lives shift our focus away from God. This evening we worship in the style of Taize style, clear your mind and let the music, prayers and readings help you to focus on God. We ask God to calm our hearts and clear our minds of life’s many distractions as we come to worship”

 

 

….and finally more of the artworks from around St Thomas Church including the Neville Sheild in situ over the entrance just below the organ, more beautiful stained-glass windows, carvings from around the altar, the Ford connection and a glimpe of the wonderful ceiling <please click to enlarge>

The Bloodline Connection is:

  • John Thomas Neville 1878 – 1953: directly connected to the church, Great Grandson of Edward King 1878 -1953 amd Great Grand Uncle of our lead researcher)

All Saints Church, Calbourne: A possitive change in the weather bought us to the little church of All Saints in Calbourne, although extensive roof repairs are being carried out we were still able to wander around inside. The church is set atop a ‘hill’ amidst picturesque rolling countryside. The church is medieval with the tower being rebuilt in 1752; its churchyard contains the commonwealth war graves of two British soldiers of World War 1. The church is built with Isle of Wight stone rubble with some flintwork and tiled roofs. The church is grouped with Holy Spirit Church, Newtown.

 

In the middle part of the church extensive roof repairs are being carried out and thus there was scaffolding up inside and out, yet we were still able to gain good access and take some unusual as well as general shots and a good video too.

 

You can hear much more about the church and its metaphysical and Craft connected history and further facts that relate to mythology by linking to our video below…

Further shots that relate to the windows, the ‘spinning wheel’ and an unusual plaque tucked on a window ledge to the left of the altar and of course the Neville shield…

 

We were not able to gain access to the graveyard due to the health and safety reasons of the scaffolding being up but one can see an alternative view of the spinning wheel from the outside  <please click on all images to enlarge>

  • A full connection to Robert McAndrew 1829 – 1879 (3 x Great Uncle to our head researcher) born in Elgin and died at Calbourne

Holy Trinity Church, Cowes: This church at the popular seaside resort of Cowes has a very commanding position directly overlooking the sea but sadly on this occasion the church was well and truly closed to us, so a quick wander around its perimeter to take some quick shots for the record was all we could muster.

 

The church is situated on the north-east side of the Isle of Wight; the town of Cowes is world famous for its yachting and other sea-side related activities. Holy Trinity Church was conscecrated on midsumers day in 1832 by Bishop Sumner, the Bishop of Winchester as a ‘place of worship on Cowes foreshore for the sailors and seafarers’. The church was built in distintive yellow Isle of Wight brick in the Gothic style. The building was designed by Mr William Bramble of Portsmouth. In 1862 the church was enlarged by the addition of a Chancel and Sanctury. One of the penalties of being so close to the sea is that the land underneath the building tends to move. During the past year extensive works have been carried out to stabilise the buliding.

The Bloodline Connection is:

  • Maurice Neville: 1915 – 1990 (2 x cousin, twice removed to our head resercher)

 

 

Our intrepid researchers chilling out on the sea-front in Cowes; and yes after all that snow and ice it really was that glorious!

St Mildred’s Church Whippingham: It had turned into a stunningly gorgeous and sunny day when we arrived at Whippingham; who could have guessed that two days earlier the island had been covererd in a blanket of snow and ice and at one point we had to have assistance to get our vehicle up an icy slope! As we drove up to the church it looked a picture in the glorious sunshine set amidst its beautiful grounds.

 

The village of Whippingham and the church are best known for their connection with Queen Victoria. Whippingham was the centre of a royal estate supporting Osborne House and Barton Manor. Queen Victoria always took  close interest in ‘her people’ at Whippingham. This fact is reflected in the many memorials in St Mildred’s Church which commemorate members of the royal family and household. The chancel of the church was built in 1854/55 by the architect Albert Jenkins Humbert, although Prince Albert is thought to have had a guiding hand. The remainder of the church was constructed in 1861/62; a side chapel is dedicated to the Battenberg/Mountbatten family. Sadly the church was shut, so no interior shots but you can discover more in the links below:

However we did manage to see some rather interesting carvings and windows from the outside of the church, indicating very strongly the Craft connection here. The carvings around the entrance porch were particularily fascinating as they point towards an Enochian connection (the root/route of Craft), the windows depict the ten pillars and above the archway a square and compass is very evident, showing ‘one point still in darkness’ telling a tale of masonic and templar connections to this church.

The Bloodine Connection here is:

  • Robert Neville: 1907 – 1969 (2 x cousin twice removed to our lead reasearcher)

 

 

At the end of a very busy and revealing day; time to unwind with the sun and the views and all that St Mildred’s Church and the beautiful Isle of Wight has to offer

DAY FIVE: All Saints Church, Ryde and homeward bound…  So our last day on the beautiful Isle of Wight had arrived all too quickly and yet just one final destination before we ventured forth on the ferry and over the seas back to England. All Saints Church is a parish church located in Ryde; not very far away from where we were staying. The building is a landmark of the island; the spire being visable from many points around the island and indeed even from the mainland itself, projecting beyond the very skyline.

 

Although the church has lost a lot of its sacred energies it does still contain some beautiful carvings and artworks, all of which are well worth a look at. The church, which is often referred to as the ‘Cathedral of the Island‘ is a grade two listed building. It was built between 1868 and 1872 by the architect George Gilbert Scott; the spire was an addition in 1881/82 and is climbed early on the Feast of Ascension to sing an Ascension hymn. There are some lovely stained-glass windows here including one dedicated to the memory of Samuel Poole, in the Chapel of the Good Shepherd, but many windows were destroyed in the second world war.

 

The carvings around the font show a merkabah, the original symbol of christianity, a simple carved cross also utilises the merkabah and one can see other artworks here too:

The Isle of Wight proved to be an island of revelations and surprises and provided us with many more dots to connect on our quests for the true bloodlines, but what does that actually means and why….?

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 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., for all the wrong reasons. What better way then to hide a secret; hidden well, in the spooky tales of headless horseman, white ladies, monks, black schucks, knights, people with dogs etc. Smoke and mirrors and more than a little bit of misdirection; perfect camoflauge to hide the truths i would say!

THE PRIORY INVESTIGATES: QUEST NUMBER EIGHT

  • ST MARY’S CHURCH SNETTISHAM
  • CASTLE RISING KINGS LYNN
  • GYSPSY CORNER MOULTEN

 

ST MARY’S CHURCH SNETTISHAM: One cannot help but wonder what these three seemingly separate sites have in common with each other; yet there is a connection, a thread running through which connects to our quests so far. So here we were in Norfolk once again, starting out on Quest Number Eight, at the stunningly beautiful Templar church; known as St Mary’s Church, Snettisham. This church which in reality is more like a catherdral is mentioned in the Domesday Book compiled in 1066; but most of the ‘present’ day church dates to the period of 1300 – 1340, although there would have been a church on this site which dates back to a much earlier time in history. The spire; one of only five in Norfolk, is second only to that of Norwich Cathedral in height and is, along with the rest of the church, testiment to a much wealthier time in the history of Snettisham, when the wool trade and textile industry kept the hands of the village weavers far from idle!

TK C

Snettisham itself is a very pretty little village situated near the west coast of Norfolk, just five miles south of Hunstanton. It has a beautiful unspoiled beach where many semi-precious gemstones can be found and an abundance of wildlife. Snettisham has a complex entry in the Domesday Book, where it is divided in ownership between Wiilliam de Warenne and the Bishop of Bayeux. It is also know for the Snettisham Horde; a series of discoveries of Iron Age precious metals.

To read more see here:- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snettisham

But we were here to visit St Mary’s Church with it’s strong Templar influences that go beyond even that; connections that go deep into our unrecorded British history. We had tried to gain access to the church on a previous occasion but due to safety aspects of roof repair work being carried out, St Mary’s church was locked to us on that occasion. However we did make an introductory video to mark the occasion of our first vist. Strangely while we were lingering on the church porch inquiring over the phone, about access, another couple arrived whom informed us, had driven all the way from London to visit, and who also eagerly listened to our phone conversation. This was a strange yet not unusual happening for us as ‘co-incidences’ do tend to follow us around – see why in the video 🙂

Follow the link below to our Youtube channel and let our lead researcher give you an introduction and glimpse into this very special church’s history:

SNETTISHAM: THE KING OF TIR & A TEMPLAR CHURCH

The architecture, decorations and fittings of the church are truely amazing and do hark back to times that simply do not relate to christianity at all, but hint to many other ancient paths as you will see in this next video. The true Celtic cross with the Fleur de Lys, that connects to the King of Tir is evident for all to see in the main part of the church; a huge chandelier Merkaba (star of David) decorated with more Fleur de Lys hangs prominently in the vestry, as does a family crest relating to the ‘Neviile’ family; one of the bloodlines we are tracing. Yet most stunningly of all is the stained glass window, to the right of the vestry and along one side of the church which is under repair, is the very rare image of the King of Tir (the original Green Man) So once again we can see very many Knight Templar and Masonic symbolism here and even beyond that. Within the vestry itself i for one can attest to the fact that the magnetic energy is so powerful there, it almost knocks one off one’s feet; i was not alone in feeling this amazing power.

CASTLE RISING: After a brief but enjoyable visit to Snettisham beach, our next port of call was to be Castle Rising; the home of many tales, many families and royal intrigue. This castle is one of the most important twelth century castles in England. The stone keep has particularly fine arcading and embellishments on the fore building and was built around 1140 by William D’Albini to show his increased importance on his marriage to Alice of Louvian, widow of Henry 1st. The most infamous piece of history here stems from when the castle was the home (prison?) to Queen Isabella, the mother of Edward 3rd, who had a hand in the murder of her husband Edward 2nd. The records show that she was visited at the castle several times by her son Edward  3rd. Some say she went mad, some say she was in exile there, some say she is still there… Listen to what our lead researcher has to say in the next video on Castle Rising’s history and it’s tales of mystery…

A GYPSY BOY’S GRAVE:  Most folks local to the village of Moulton near Newmarket in Suffolk, know of ‘Gypsy Corner’ and can tell the sad tale of the young gypsy lad who is burried there; some may know of the gypsy curse attached to the grave site while others may not. But the mystery surounding the small burial site doe not end there and goes way deeper.

Our head researcher  will explain when you follow the link to our Youtube channel.

Conclusions of Quest Eight:

  • St Mary’s Church, Snettisham

Leading on from the previous visit; amazing to actually get inside courtessy of Peter Murray. He is an interesting chap in himself, having much hidden knowledge contained. After a conversation about burial or cremation, Peter assured that ‘we will make sure that this happens for you’. He was certainly more than just an organist.

The Vestry holds the key of the Hamilton surname linked with the Neville surname, with more important aspects of Judaism embedded within this timeless building. The lighting in the vestry is made from wood and the Hexagram ‘Star of David’, with trails around the hexagram of the Fleurs de Lys, gives tales of Judaism enshrined with Templarism. So the world at large would believe that it is the English Christian faith which guided the Templars. Clearly not correct, it was Judaism that over-stood all other beliefs and faiths.

The Celtic connection is contained within this church, spanning over 1,000 years tales to be deciphered, if only some were able to decipher such encryption.

  • Castle Rising

Evidence of Ghostly presence contained within the acoustic room within the castle itself. There is most definitely a regional hub of energy transmitting and being received at this point. Hardly surprising with Pyramid energy gathering at all crossings through this vibrant land of Castle Rising.

Particular attention must be given to the Norman Chapel which contains a sealed entrance to the underground tunnels that will reveal more to those whom seek to find.

It is of no surprise that our visit was enlightened with the presence of a protector, a Guardian of Secrets that brisked through and around us within the acoustic chamber.

  • The Gypsy Boy’s Grave

Of course most know the tale of the young man whom fell asleep and lost one of his sheep, no more than myth, where one is able to clearly identify the myth with that of ‘The Lamb of God’. The boy’s real name is Elias F born in 1828 and subsequently passed in 1841, some 13 years old. But was this boy a Gypsy and was he really guiding sheep? We must look to the meaning behind the name ‘Elias’ as this is where the Quest and the Clues originate. ‘Elias’ means ‘The Lord is my God’. It does not make reference to a God, it clearly refers to a Lord. So whom is the Lord? The Lord is connected to Snettisham Church and to that of Castle Rising. What we are permitted to reveal is that this boy has a direct connection to a Hertfordshire Banker in 1833.

THE PRIORY INVESTIGATES: QUEST NUMBER FOUR

  • SANTON DOWNHAM CHURCH NORFOLK:

Quest number four takes us to All Saints Church, Santon Downham and to one of the smallest churches in England. Hidden away along a beautiful riverside walk on the border of Suffolk and Norfolk and surrounded by beautiful forests lies the tiny church of Santon Downham. It is well off the beaten track yet only a few miles from Elveden and Grimes Graves; a very important ancient flint mine; hence the extensive use of flint as a building material in this area. Santon Church; which has been constructed using this local flint certainly seems to have gained somewhat of a reputation when it comes to unusual happenings. The church was declared pastorally redundant some years ago and a trust was set up to care for it in 1996 and was granted a lease by the diocese in 1998. The trust is almost entirely dependant on volunteer help and visitors gifts but one can see that this little church is very lovingly looked after and cherished.

 The stunning walk to Santon Church,  nestling within the peaceful Norfolk countryside <click to enlarge image>

The church is sometimes mistakenly known by the locals as St Helens Church, due to the fact that there was once a nearby church of the same name. Some years ago, aside a nearby stream there was indeed another church here, situated right next to a freshwater, underground spring; an old church named St Helens; so thus the confusion has arisen over the years, but they were in fact two different churches.

Another point of interest is that in 1972 ‘Dads Army’ the beloved TV show was also filmed here, even though a very short broadcast, still never the less filmed here and one wonders why they chose this particular church; for the countryside one presumes? All very interesting

There have been many tales told and ensuing investigations into the happenings here at Santon Church, but even without the ‘ghostly goings on’  this church and area have had a very fascinating history and we are here today to either prove or disprove and to allow everyone to make up their own minds.

These are the two sculptures mentioned in the previous clip. They can be found on the wall of the far side of the church and are exactly the same as on Rosslyn Chapel, Scotland…

Lamb of God 4

 The stunning ‘Lamb of God’ (Agnus Dei) window high above the altar with more than just a hint of suggestion to Knight Templar connections

Haunted Pew 12   Altar 5

The ‘haunted’ pew; very much colder than the surrounding area and a close up of the altar detail, again showing Knight Templar influences

Ceiling 11

The stunningly beautiful coloured ceiling echoing the design of the Italian Chapel of the Orkeys; again depicting strong Knight Templar influences, which is very interesting for a church seeminly in the middle of nowwhere…

The Reverend Ken Doyle: The Reverend Ken Doyle would have taken his sermons from the pulpit which is just over the aisle from the ‘haunted’ pew, but what is interesting to note is that he was very much a drunkard and there are even reports of him having ‘wild sexual orgies’ in the church during the night time with alcohol, liquor and ‘loose women’ and various other people coming and going, enjoying these carnal frivolities.

But what is fascinating is that Ken Doyle was in actual fact de-clothed yet one cannot find much about this on the internet or anywhere else, but what is most interesting is that he was then re-clothed!  There was actually a lot of controversy as to the reasons why he was re-clothed. He was certainly de-clothed for being a drunkard; of being of ill-repute and being morally unacceptable, yet despite all this he had enough information to bribe certain members of the royal family; enough to take action with. So in order to hush him, he was consquently re-clothed; he had his home, his money and his funds back in order to survive! Then what happened was, he was put into this tiny parish here at Santon Downham – so yes he was re-clothed but put into a parish; a church in the middle of nowhere where he would be lucky to get any parishioners – so thus his ‘punishment’ for what he had done.

It is said that the Reverend Doyle will talk to people here; he will communicate and say different things to people whilst here. Folks often report of the the smell of intense alcohol just down from the pulpit area. The pulpit itself is very old, all original wood with a gate and very steep steps – no easy task for a drunken priest to manage – that is if he actually physically ever made it up the steps in the first place! Down in front of the pulpit is a very small section where the choir would have sat; an amazingly small church and with a very small congregation.

The Mysteries and Masonic Symbolism of Santon Church: Santon church is certainly a very small church which would have had a very small congregation and yet some big mysteries do still remain. Why is Bancroft, a tax collector buried here prominently in the main aisle; a fact that certainly makes no sense?  It is known that he was a Freemason of very high ranking and as mentioned previously there are certainly Masonic elements to the whole church which are plainly visible, such as the church’s structure and design, the Fleur de Lys, the Lamb of God and the Italian Chapel roof; all very Masonic driven, leading to shall we say, some kind of ‘cult’ aspect going on here. Even down to the ‘trinity’ symbol on the window at the back of the church, all very interesting. Many visitors to the church have suggested smelling an aroma of alcohol but on the day we visited there was a putrid smell but rather down to the dampness of the church than anything else.

Window 10   Window 9

The church windows; one of which clearly shows the ‘trinity’ symbol

In the pew which is know as the haunted pew is a plaque on the wall, again embelished with overtly Masonic symbolism as described in our next short clip. One wonders why this particular plaque was placed here and is there a connection to the lady in question, the haunted pew and the masonic symbolism?

Seal 7

The haunted pew itself has a door which, it is said, seemingly opens on its own and which does not take kindly at all to any visitors that enter there. It is also known as the Royal Pew, being at the front of the church, but in somewhat of an obscure position, right in front of a solid wall, with no view of the altar, so not really very ‘Royal’ at all; the best seats in the house being a couple of rows back where one could see the priest, the choir and the altar. We all went and sat inside the said pew and apart from sensing a big drop in temperature and a distinct feeling of it being ‘different’ from the rest of the church, we found nothing untoward to be occurring.

Our lead researcher was very aware at this point of seeing a mist, a veil as he looked out from the pew, but whether this was light reflection we are unsure, but it was mostly just around the pulpit area. Also as the link at the bottom shows, we recorded an EVP in the altar area!

Since arriving in the church the atmosphere was at first quite intense and buzzy but it did change to become very peaceful and calming, which was a good sign and although Alek did try for some time to establish communication and ask for a sign or reason and purpose for any ‘entities’ being there;  no one was forthcoming on this particular day. Never the less a very intereting day with much pause for thought…

SANTON DOWNHAM CHURCH

The quaint yet perfect little church of Santon Downham, set amidst rural countryside only a few miles from the ‘lunaresque’ landscape of Grimes Graves ancient flint mines, which provided flint for the church and elsewhere.

Conclusions and thoughts for the day: So what of this small church in the quiet untouched landscape of Santon Downham? Was it a mysterious setting for some sinister act or was it merely a church for the local people? It makes no sense at all to have a church this small and if we look at records dating back, Santon Downham had a larger population in times past; presumably it would have required a larger church than All Saints?

It is evident that this church is covered in Masonic and Knights Templar meanings and one can only make suggestions as to the reasons of such. From the ‘Lamb of God’ prominent within the church and taking a centre space, it is clear that this church hides the secrets of the past for only a few to see and truly know.

Attention should be drawn to Mary Ann Cutter, after all, she was known locally as the ‘Guardian of Secrets’, especially those of the Knights Templar whom had lands in Santon Downham in 1221. It is truly amazing to think that the Templars have taken many on a journey of ‘red herrings’, a journey with no conclusion and one can only assume that the key to success is within the simplicity of structure. That age-old phrase to state the obvious to become the non-obvious certainly springs to mind here… Therefore, if we place items in such a remote seldom-heard land, it is sure to be safe and untouched for a millennia.

Are there ghostly tales to tell of this quaint church? Yes, there is certainly activity there, even a whisper or two, but it really does depend on the purpose of your visit, your actual presence there. If you are there to mock, to find something that is not yours, then those whom protect it are surely going to react in a hostile way. However, if you are there for education, for enlightenment, then you will experience a peace and energy unknown to many.
