‘Headless Monk’ Forces Park To Relocate

Could this mist be the ghostly monk? Or is this jus bunk?

Could this mist be the ghostly monk? Or is this jus bunk?

When construction workers started to report a ‘headless monk’ haunting the area in which they were preparing to build a new water slide, the “professionals” were called in.
A new water ride is being build at the Thorpe Park in the UK. Once the work started, so did the poltergeist activities. Soon, claims of a headless monk roaming the park were being made.

South West London Paranormal Society were called to investigate this matter. According to the team, they concluded that the area was haunted and possibly could be an ancient burial site.
How did they know you may ask? They said that they captured several “orbs” and “ghostly images” as well as reaction from a Ouija board. Just check out the images above. Looks like a ghost, right?

I don’t second guess that ancient burial sites could hold some residual energy–good or bad– but the mention of “paranormal detection agency” makes me noxious. Why would anyone use such images like the one above as proof of the paranormal, and why would anyone believe that?

The claims are outlandish, but the evidence to support them are even worse.

A headless monk, a sudden chill, objects moving of own accord.

A new ride at an amusement park? No, the strange, seemingly paranormal, behaviour was experienced by workmen building a water ride at Thorpe Park, one of the country’s biggest theme parks.

There were reports of workers feeling like someone was watching over their shoulder and sudden cold feelings being experienced.

As a result of the ghostly sightings, and fears that an ancient burial ground has been disturbed, the project was moved to another site.

A paranormal detection agency was then called in to the park in Chertsey, Surrey, to carry out tests and found that a burial ground or settlement could have been disturbed.

Managers at the park decided to relocate the ride to another area of the park and also called in a forensic team to carry out further investigations.

The 64ft-tall water ride, Storm Surge, was originally planned for an area known as Monk’s Walk, an old footpath that has linked the ruins of nearby Chertsey Abbey to Thorpe Church since AD666.

The ride’s foundations would have been over an area of the park where stone coffins have previously been excavated.

‘The results were so strong, we felt the only explanation could be that an ancient burial ground or settlement was being disturbed, prompting the extra paranormal activity’

Mike Vallis, divisional director of Thorpe Park, said: ‘It became apparent that something strange was going on when teams started clearing Storm Surge’s initial site.

‘Staff reports of eerie goings-on shot up and the only physical change in the park, at that time, was the beginning of ground preparation work for the new ride.

‘As employees were getting freaked out, we decided to call on an expert to see whether there was anything to report but had no idea of the dramatic effects.’

Jim Arnold, of South West London Paranormal, said: ‘We carry out these kinds of investigations quite regularly, with medium to weak results being reported on a weekly basis.

‘Thorpe Park, however, was more striking as results were picked up immediately, with orbs, ghostly images in photography and ouija reaction results being strongest around the site where they were proposing to build Storm Surge.

Forensic geophysicist Peter Masters, of Cranfield University, has since been called in to analyse the site, using deep ground radar.

He said: ‘From the preliminary investigations, we have picked up signatures similar to that of a burial ground – possibly ancient.

‘Although this could simply be an old building, with Thorpe Park’s history, the investigation is definitely worth continuing.’
