Jenny S BS: Experiences with Ghosts & The Paranormal (122* d) RE: BS: Experiences with Ghosts & The Paranormal 22 Jun 01

I have, several times, been awoken in the morning by my (dead) mother saying my name in my ear. Trouble is, I can't ever make out what she wants to tell me, or why she wants me to wake up!

Nancy, once (unknowingly) took a photo of a "spirit"(?) while we were walking in the woods. You can see the photo at: (There are some other "Otherworld Encounters there, too)

Another time, Pat & I saw an "Otherworld Castle"... During the winter months we would often visit and explore different market towns throughout West Devon and East Cornwall.

On one such excursion, as we were weaving our way through side-streets to leave the town and make our way home, we saw an old castle which we had never noticed before.

The castle was a small, ancient building atop a conical hill. Such castles are not unusual in the area. There are similar castles at Totnes, Barnstaple, and Saltash.

So we were not surprised to see such a castle, though we were surprised that we had never noticed it before - and we promised ourselves that we would return again to explore it.

However, some months later when we decided to return for another visit we found that we had forgotten where we had seen the castle. We thought initially that it had been near Torquay - at Babbacombe or St Marychurch perhaps. But when we returned there we could not find it.

So, over the next few weeks we re-visited all of the towns which we had visited just those few months before. Still we could not find the castle again.

We pored over detailed maps of the area, and visited every likely-looking feature (and discovered lots more interesting places in the meantime: but that's another story...). Still we could not find the castle which we had seen earlier.

Fifteen years have passed since then, and still we hope to find again the castle which has so tantalised us all these years.
