THE PRIORY OF GRACE DIEU
Well what an interesting way to spend an evening, who would have thought after a visit to two pubs we would have such a wonderful evening.
Where do we start, we kicked off the evening standing in the bus stop which was on the opposite side of the road. It was a brick bus stop which looked very dark from the outside. We also noticed during the evening that the bus actually doesnít stop there but it stops a few yards before it. We were asked to see what feelings and impressions we could pick up. When looking over the road there didnít seem to be anything there, once the torch went on we could just make an outline out.
After making our way across the road and into the fields it wasnít until we got closer that we could actually see the size of the ruins. From the road it looked far away but once you got close up the road seemed to appear very near which was very unusual.
We walked around the priory first to get the feel of it and also to take some photos which we later found to contain lots of orbs especially in certain places, there was no explanation for this as everything appeared normal. On looking up at the ruins we were aware that the brick work looked just like faces of all shapes and sizes which we all felt quite unusual.
We opened up in the private prayer room and immediately we felt a presence watching us, we all felt very uncomfortable and had a feeling of us not being allowed in there private space. As we moved along to what would have been a corridor two of the ladies felt very apprehensive and one of the ladies breathing became very agitated. We also got the feeling of being watched from within the walls. As we then moved through to the other side we all heard what appeared to be a sigh and instantly felt we were being followed, most of us felt very nervous of the surrounding area and didnít feel comfortable about being the last one when walking alone.
We made our way back to the front towards what was left of the chimney and their cooking oven, oddly during the evening we kept feeling a breeze which would mysteriously disappear then reappear again, but in front the chimney it was very calm and we all felt warm standing there but as it was a chilly evening we felt that was strange as well. Two of the ladies did lone vigils one near the wall and one standing on a path, she could see us very clearly but when we looked across towards her we could not see her. As she was standing there she could very clearly hear footsteps on the path beside her, but she was standing all alone. We made our way back to the private prayer room where again most of us felt uncomfortable and people started to develop headaches. We still felt like we were being watched and decided one of us would call out to see if we could get any reaction, when asking if they could possibly throw anything to let us know they were there, a stone was thrown towards the floor, as we had been standing there for quite awhile and there hadnít been anyone close to the wall we could discount any one of ourselves had thrown it.
As the night came to an end we made our way back to the bus stop taking photos on the way and we were very surprised at the amount of orbs surrounding the bus stop.
For only being there for a short amount of time we picked up a large amount of information which after we finished we discovered was correct.
This is a very active place and would highly recommend a longer stay to do a full investigation; it truly is a wonderful sight to see and I for one hope to return there very soon.
