• Dark Journey by David Farrant
  • Dark Journey


    A compendium of over 20 ghostly and supernatural tales from across Great Britain that have been investigated by David Farrant and members of The British Psychic & Occult Society.

    Category: .


From ‘The Spectral Coach of Enfield’ to “The Black Monk of Llanddeiniolen”, David Farrant presents a collection of cases that although abridged, nevertheless provide a provoking insight into the realm of ghosts and demons and the fascinating world in which they supposedly dwell.

The majority of these cases are relatively if not entirely unknown to most paranormal enthusiasts and do not appear in mainstream publications, representing as they do the authentic interviews carried out with witnesses and the dedicated field research of the B.P.O.S. who were asked for their advice in these matters.

Further investigation into this case, revealed that the lady in question began to have a series of nightmares ((usually just before an attack began), started sleepwalking regularly and developed an aversion to bright light. As well as this, she also became anemic and found it almost impossible to eat.

Eventually, events culminated in her visits to several doctors (although more than in desperation than in expectation), but, whilst confirming her anemia and an adverse reaction to bright light, no physical cause could be found to account for her alleged experiences.

But notwithstanding the confirmation of her physical symptoms,, this did little to allay in ultimate fear that eventu­ally she would have to sleep, and that the ghoulish entity would be nearby … waiting.



After a while, the dowsing stick reacted violently and followed a given course for several yards before abruptly pointing to the right. Ahead, Mrs Neal saw the tall lean figure of a monk dressed in a dark brown cloak with a loose-fitting hood which shaded the face.
The figure beckoned twice using its right hand with a slow and deliberate movement, then pointed in the direction of the abbey.
Mrs Neal was unable to tell exactly how long this confrontation lasted; it seemed that she’d temporarily become ‘trapped’ in some other dimension where time and tenable reality ceased to matter.
