Haunted old farm house with a hint
of devil worship
Common Leys Farm April 9th 2005
We arrived at Common Leys Farm about and went to look at the disused army village
in the woods while waiting for dinner. Whilst eating in
the dining room Mike picked up on a black dog. Brenda
also picked up on a dog. She also picked up on a man sat
at the far table, he had a shirt with a stiff collar,
waistcoat, sandy hair going grey and combed back, moustache
and beard, looked to be Victorian.
Mike picked up on a little girl
and some of the group reported feeling sick.
Mike picked up on smell of'old man', thinning on top but not bald,
wearing a dressing gown He seemed quite content but had
pain in his hips and back, dry throat There was a taste
of liquorice - Fishermans Friend. There was a very heady
feeling in the cottage. Brenda and Mike could see a shape
stood behind Pat who was sitting on the bed. Brenda then
sat on the bed and Mike could see someone behind her.
Brenda then picked up on a youngish
girl stood by the smaller bed. The camcorder kept going
out of focus. Brenda went into trance and had a girl came
through who said the cottage had changd, she asked for
Marcus. The girl was called Beth, she was asking for water.
She had a fever, her husband had died of fever. She said
that the door and windows had been boarded up and she
had been left to die. The camcorder went out of focus
again. The girl said "marcus has gone" Mick thought it
might have been the plague.
Mike picked up on a man about 30,
dark hair in a pony tail, smartly dressed, shirt done
up to the top. He was sat where the small bed was, he
was feverishly hot and had spots. Small pox?
Several people saw lights and orbscoming
from the wall by the double bed. Angie and Mick both said
they felt really sad. The camcorder turned itself off.
Main building-back bedroom
We started the vigil. Brenda said
she could hear male voices and Mike said he could see
little lights moving about.. Mike picked up on a woman
with her hair tied up wearing a dress with a frilly white
collar and buttons down the front, possibly navy in colour.
There was a musty smell and the smell of humbugs, that
several people experienced.Brenda and mike felt something
moving around the room. Brenda went into trance. The camcorder
went out of focus and there was a damp, musty smell. A
man started talking through Brenda, it sounded like Romany.
The entity started to get quite angry and Brenda's face
and voice changed. The voice said 'It is done' and Brenda
came out of trance.
There was a slight fluctuation in
the EMF reading, the temperature dropped and there was
an unexplainable breeze. The EMF meter started to react
erratically and Brenda picked up on the name of Toby.
Stables and grounds
Brenda felt that there had been
some kind of pagan rituals and sacrifices carried out
in the yard and stables. There had been symbols drawn
in the stables. Angie said that there had been pagan rites
performed on the adjoining land over the years. Brenda
and Mike picked up a boy who cut his hand off in a threshing
We carried out a vigil in the bigger
bedroom. A few of us thought we heard a drum banging but
it turned out that someone had set the washing machine
going downstairs. Mike got scatched on the face.
Everyone felt quite nauseous and
several people left the room to have a coffee break.
Brenda went into trance and at one
point it looked like Brenda had a mouthful of black teeth.
A liitle girl called Lucy came through who seemed quite
A girl came through singing. Brenda
looked like she had a strange shape mouth and a scar down
her left cheek, her face appeared to be longer and thinner.
Brenda started breathing oddly and the camcorder went
out of focus. Brenda came out of trance.
We took another walk around the
grounds and then decided to call it a night.
Common Leys Farm is supposed to be haunted by
a major in stripey trousers. A 'naughty' male gardener
walks through the drawing room pushing a wheelbarrow full
of gold. There is a lady wearing a pinny who hates cooking.
A black Labrador dog, a little girl with long blond hair who
is heard laughing and running around on the landing. There
is a feeling of sadness felt in the dining room. Orbs
have been seen in the cottage. The owner says that white
orbs are new ghosts and red orbs are when they are passing
through. A grey lady has been seen in the front paddock.
A very entertaining evening the highlight
was feeding the pet rabbits in their runs, especially
when Roy tried feeding an 'empty' hutch. Must have been
a 'ghost' rabbit.
