IN MAY 2005, a Ghostbusters headed south to visit reputedly haunted sites in and around Highgate, North London. Andy Wright had teamed up with a group of psychics and on their agenda to visit and spend vigils was the eerie site of a Roman Settlement in Highgate Wood; two old coaching Inns in Highgate Village where a ‘tall black figure’ had been reported, Hampstead Heath that houses the spooky Spaniards Inn and, of course, Highgate Cemetery, scene of (or ‘past scene’ of) alleged ‘vampire’ sightings.
The group began their planned tour around 6 pm, intending to use the available light to inspect more accessible sites and end up later in Swains Lane once darkness had enveloped Highgate Cemetery.
Andy took advantage of his Highgate visit to also visit myself, and for a good hour we exchanged notes and I updated him on current sightings (and other reported ‘visitations’ by some ‘invisible presence’) in and around the cemetery. I was later to meet his group of psychics who had gathered at the Old Roman Settlement, taking photographs and readings of the deserted area.
Later in that year, Andy sent me a full report of the group’s impressions and experiences, and he has kindly given me to summarise this here to enlighten those who may not be so familiar about the ‘ghosts’ reported in the Highgate area.
This I will do at a later time as the report is quite long and it needs accurate representation.
But in the meantime, here is a photograph of my first actual meeting with Andy Wright in my flat, which incidentally, overlooks Highgate Wood and the eerie Roman Settlement.
