My dear friend Redmond McWilliams, Founder of the Highgate Cemetery Vampire Appreciation Society, was invited to appear as a guest on North London Paranormal Investigations (NLPI)’s recently revived Friday paranormal radio show, presented by Mickey Gocool.
The show was part 2 of a series based around London ghost stories, and people’s knowledge or experiences of these.
Redmond was asked, in particular, about his knowledge of the infamous ‘Highgate Vampire’, and his story is interesting to say the least. It is the story of a man who has researched the case for many years: indeed, it is one of the main subjects debated on his HCVAS Facebook group, on an on-going basis.
Among the topics discussed were the many sightings of darkly garbed black figures around the perimeter of Highgate Cemetery West (including Swains Lane and Waterlow Park), and the eternal tension between the ghost and vampire theories which attempt to explain paranormal experiences in the area.
