Afternoon in Wistmans Wood is followed by early evening in possibly the second ‘most haunted place on Dartmoor’ – the burnt out church above Buckfastleigh; home of the creepy Cabell Crypt, Victorian bodysnatchers, headless horses, Anglo-Saxon burial grounds, those devil dog Whist Hounds again (or if you prefer,’Hounds of the Baskervilles’)
Plenty potential spooky supernatural malarkey going on up here.
We’ve got the idea of making a little Gothic film of this place.

We shot 42 video clips! I haven’t looked at them properly yet
If tonight is anything to go by, we’re going to have a lot of fun playing in, and with, this place.
Haze is wanting to dress up in a long black cloak.
The spirit of Ken Russell lives on!
