My friend and I did our preparations in case we did get confronted by any energy or spirit while out and about and that is asking for the light to protect you…
So we left and firstly decided to pop down to church ope cove to see what energy we could find at the old 13th century ruins half way down and we walked down the steps to be greeted by this. 😉
Can’t get much better than that! 🙂
Did we find anything? …
Well, I never, not on camera no … except the amazing views which I will share anyway. 😉
But … my mate did. I’ll post pictures too… below. 🙂
Church Ope Ruins
But these ruins down Church Ope certainly have a presence and you can feel it yet the church interior is eerily calm itself.
Standing here was peaceful but you could feel something over on the left where the two big sarcophagus type graves are, one with a skull and crossbones on the end of it. You can just make out the top of them over the wall in the left of this picture.
13th Century. . . that’s the middle ages. Can’t imagine Portland then. . . must have been a fascinating place then. The population of England doubled in that century. Neither of us could help thinking Portland and that church was a massively important place at that time. Especially with the strong freemasonry type connections as well as the well known stone trade, but just being located there seemed to make it a really important place.
My friend felt there was a strong French connection too. Anyone have any ideas on facts about any french connection to Portland of the time?
We did have some odd feelings down here, couldn’t quite put my finger on what it was myself but now getting home and seeing the proof I know it was there, yet what my friend was saying while down there when we had no idea of the photos we have, has now given me a bit of a shiver. 😉
So… these were taken on the way down … and we passed NO ONE.
Take a look at both of these photos my mate took of me… and spot the difference… taken as a quick burst of a few photos … the one with the difference was in the middle of the burst.
Not the godawful looking thing in a black coat…. that ‘s me. 🙂 But take a good look at it…
Then look at this one below … Closely.
See it? 😮 Clearly I had not moved!
Here is a zoomed in one, I checked as someone pointed out on facebook the idea by asking if there was one… thanks… so, edit to add this picture below… now take a look at that!
I learn that the St Swithins Priest were the first to use the church. Could it be one of them keeping an eye on the place? It does look like a robe to me. Not something anyone wears these days!
Anyone local will know where the spot is and where it leads to. . . yep.
Just where we went to, the ruins.
As seen taken from almost the same spot looking out to sea and you can see the signpost on the right of it. . . 13th century ruins.
Spooky… as we knew nothing of it till just a few minutes ago when my mate looked through his photos.
It wasn’t a bad feeling though. Not at all. But we saw no one until about 20 mins after getting there, certainly no one went past us.
So we moved on …
St Georges Church and Graveyard
Sat atop of the island with amazing broad vantage points, you see the grove, southwell, heights … easy to find this Church. 😉
Surrounded by a graveyard and nearly all of them are old ones from a century or more ago, I did see one from 1919 which was one from the first world war, a war grave and yet it seemed to be in the wrong place for some reason…
The church itself was built in 1790. Taken over by a church protection group of some kind in 1971, which was a great year… 😉
Though not used it is open daily and people are welcome to pop in and have a look, lovely place and we lit two candles, left a donation as they are reliant on them for up keeping.
A nice church with a peaceful ambiance. Well worth going to have a look at but do respect the place and you might like some of the details they leave out for people to learn about. 🙂
Plenty of info in there. Give it a visit…
The graveyard itself always fascinated me, I have been creeped out a few times there at night just walking though it alone. Not a pleasant feeling when you are half way though. 😆 No fear today as we had that light over us. 😉
Mainly it was calm for me as only one part which is the back half makes me feel odd, but not so bad in daylight, at night I would certainly feel it more, though my mate sensed something there he felt this spirit just wanted to be left alone. So we left it alone. 😉 Gladly.
I got some great photos that I can use with poems one uncannily reminded me of someone … so, good photos are always a bonus. 😉
I think a night visit to this place would be interesting. Anyone? 😉
A group hunt would be fun.
So, not a bad start, the first time I have ever done that kind of thing and I get photobombed. 😆
Any thoughts on this?
