Perhaps the other people there were other kids who'd gone there as a dare. Maybe they saw you, and decided to give you a scare with the singing and chanting?
Any person or kids that go up there at that time of night are mad... :shock: ..... earl....Mythopoeika said:Perhaps the other people there were other kids who'd gone there as a dare. Maybe they saw you, and decided to give you a scare with the singing and chanting?
Make of that what you will :shock:It turned out, the Black wooden box was a battery operated slide projector, he had placed it up in the bell tower and angled it to shine into the ruins of the church. The sheer cunning hadn't finished there, he had rigged the projector to work from a remote control. The remote control allowed him to change the slide, fade the image in and out and turn the whole lot on and off from a distance of more than 100 feet.
He had briefly flashed across the wall a hooded monk like figure, this is what had scared the teenagers.After this we were never to have another serious attempt at a ghost hunt on this site, however we did go back on many occasions to scare brave teenagers.
Only just read this thread and had never heard of Clophill before today. However, from what I've read on the Internet the church was dedicated to St Mary the Virgin i.e. the mother of Jesus, whereas my understanding is that the Knights Templar* were more concerned with St Mary Magdalene Jesus' follower/wife/lover/whatever.There have been suggestions that a modern day Templar group was responsible, the church is dedicated to St Mary which has Templar links and the Templars had a lot of property in the area, but I think that it is unlikely. So much is attributed to the Templars that it seems that you could attribute practically anything to them.
