A disturbing experience

I made the mistake of searching the internet for references to myself. Not something I've done before, although I believe it's a common practice. I found this. It's about that girl Steven Morgan killed.

Why? No possible reason. If he is the same individual who posted on newsgroup, I hope the police catch him soon. He is an angry, violent man.

No, I'd like to point out again that I am in no way guilty of murder. Especially not this one. Odd that whoever it is chose to link to the one of my three blogs I've post littlest on. Also odd that anyone would implicate me there.

The middle link is to an article I posted on Usenet (which Qim said would lose readers due to being long and mentioning the Illuminati).

Yes, I wonder who this commenter, going by the name "Jesus wept" could be.

coincidence theory part three

I suppose it's a coincidence...

That Scientology was founded by a satanist cultist and the Process Church spin-off openly worshipped satan.

That Michael Carr was a Scientologist, and that Charles Manson claimed to be a clear.

That Charles P Lindbergh, who killed his own child, was originally Charles Mansson.

That L Ron Hubbard was eventually shown to have an impotence problem after he'd been accused of raping a young girl who claimed he couldn't achieve an erection during the act.

That de Sade, Crowley and Hitler, amongst countless others, fused occultism with Social Darwinism.

That the women who claimed George W Bush had raped her died before the case could come to trial.

That Clinton was in charge of the Mena drugs for guns shipment point and later went on the be president. That Clinton visited Bilderberg just before being put into office, as did Blair and Carter.

That a slave sat on alexander the great's babylonian throne during the saturnalia, perhaps as a traditional attempt for the killing of the king to be deflected onto the king for the day, the slave.

That saturn, satan and set have such remarkably similar names. And that the first two were victims of overthrow (Zeus and Horus) and the third a revolutionary.

That Hubbard, Manson and a basketful of serial killers spent time in a mental hospital.

That Ewan and Marjorie were both called Cameron. Not to mention Duncan.

That Cameron's students ended up in the South American Condor torture system, in paraguay amongst other place, where the secret police chief was a murderer, paedophile and serial killer. (See "At the tomb of the inflatable pig".)

That the Nazi higher orders were in the Order of the Black Stone, the villains in the Thirty Nine Steps by WWI intelligence propagandist John Buchan were in the SchwartzStein (Black Stone) and that the Kaaba is a glorification of a black stone.

That within six months of the defection of Oswald to the Soviet Union, he being a former radar operator at the U2's base, the U2 of Gary Powers was shot down, something commonly believed to have been part of a CIA plot to destabilise peace talks between Eisenhower and Kruschev.

That Oswald, supposed killer of a president, Ferrie the paedophile and Seal the drug smuggler were all in a CAP unit together. That film showing Ferrie and Oswald together at a Lake Ponchartrain training camp for anti-Castro Cubans was stolen from the US Congress.

That Seal and Ferrie both had photographic memories, a common characteristic of Monarch mind-slaves.

That the Catholic Blairs went through a rebirthing ceremony at Xtul in Mexico.

That the CIA MK documents specifically wanted mind control to make people torture proof by partitioning their memory, using Taiwan as an example of somewhere they might be tortured, and that Candy Jones reports this exact thing happening to her (reported before the documents were released). That both John Marks and Candy Jones document the use of childhood imaginary friends to produce alters.

That one of the whores involved in the Profumo affairs went on the jointly found the Process Church of the Final Judgement.

That Charles Manson spent part of his youth at Boys' Town.

That the "falsely accused" witch Joan of Arc worked closely with her fellow soldier of France Gilles de Retz, also known for his conviction as a devil worshipper and for the search of his castle turning up several dozen child-corpses.

That "chuck norris!", is not only a foreign policy but a teacher of karate next door to the McMartin school.

That, according to Cathy O'Brien Dick Cheney had an oversized penis and according to Kola Boof, so does Osama bin Laden.

That the finder of the Crystal Skull, Mitchell-Hedges, and the founder of the Red Army, Trotsky, were both playing catamite to wall street bankers at the same time and were briefly room-mates.

That Hitler shared a wet nurse with a psychic called Schneider.

That Hitler was an informant for German intelligence sent to infiltrate the Nazis, as most modern Islamists seem to be spies.

That the Germans have cultivated Islamist intelligence ties for quite some time, the Kaiser having claimed to be Muslim to the Arab world, the Muslim Brotherhood having been aided by the Nazis and the Hamburg cell of Atta.

That the US invented the term "al-Qaeda" (according to the late Foreign Scretary it means, as is known, "the base", and refers to a CIA database of their Arab-Afghan agents). That it is also slang for toilet and that arabs didn't start using it until the american media blitz post-9/11.

Fame beckons

Everyone be sure to read this, apparently I am quoted.

Punt PI

I know, it's Punt PI, it's presented by a comedian, it's on the typically liberal BBC. It's light-hearted. It is, perhaps, not appropriate to make a light hearted look at torture-based mind control.

I was immediately sure that Punt PI on Radio four would be a load of rubbish, as soon as i heard it was to be about mind contorl. It followed the CIA establishment line that they simply reacted to Communist evil on their brave boys in korea, although as we all know most of their ideas came from the Nazis and the rest were pre-existing, from Estabrooks and company.

They have a woman claiming we can do very crude implants, but we don't have the technology for mind control. She has, perhaps, not heard of Jose Delagado who was, at least as long ago as the 60s, able to elicit specific emotions and activities from a bull. But, as in all areas of life, I'm sure technology hasn't advanced in the last 50 years, hence the 7 yard long computer I'm typing this on. Yes, technology becoming smaller and more advanced over the course of only a few decades is surely impossible. She claims the CIA "probably aren't" ahead of the wider world on mind control, although as with all the anti- claims in this programme we have only her word to go on. But academics rarely try to control people's minds, while for the CIA it's a full time occupation, whether through deceit, information control, propaganda or implants, hypnosis, narcohypnosis and Radio hypnotic intracerebral control.

Also remember Downard and so forth, testimony to a very long lasting interest by the elites in mind control.

They claim the GIs must have been brainwashed in Korea to make confessions about the US using germ warfare on China, not only (it says) were these confession untrue, but they "couldn't possibly be true", although again it's only his word we have to go on. See William Blum's "Killing Hope": the Americans followed Japanese WWII practice by dropping Shiro Ishii's germ bombs on China. The confessions, in other words, were true.

They quote Estabrooks'(?) statement that anyone who thinks people can only be hypnotised into doing things they'd do while awake needs to review their opinions. They cite the case of the CIA secretary hypnotised into shooting another secretary whilst in an hypnotic rage. Almost had me thinking it was going to be a balanced look at hypno control, but no. Then they had some bloke on who, with no expertise on a par with Estabrooks and with no evidence to support him (although he did say "all the evidence indicates" before making his groundless claims) says the current opinion is that people can't be hypnotised to do what they wouldn't do anyway, which is palpable rubbish. About the case of the CIA secretary he says in "thse sorts of cases" the people would have done the same thing even without hypnosis, although he ignores this actual case in which the secretary was too scared to even touch a gun when not hypnotised. He also claims, by saying the above, that the people the CIA was hypnotising would happily shoot people or throw acid over people for no reason.

Insulin comas; lawsuits against the former head of the APA/CPA/WAMH, etc.; Operation Paperclip, TBMC, none of these get a mention.

I've also just seen a programme upon the Beeb hero-worshipping the mass murderer Deng Xioping. Also claiming he was brave and heroic to put economics ahead of politics and to adopt capitalism without "western style politics", which is one way of putting it.

pseudonymous bosch

My nom-de-net is "purportedly pseudonymous", according to littledynamo. Now, once upon a time I used other names on the internet, I briefly used my real name when I first arrived and even more briefly used "Ted Drake". Not a cuddly dragon, but a footballer from the Chapman-era Arsenal, just after they'd moved to Highbury (a ground, with famous marble halls, built on a former Church of England playing field, which was purchased by the Masonic head of the club (later disqualified from any involvement in football for bribery in a incident which gained Arsenal it's top flight status, which it has retained to the present day, at the expense of local rivals Tottenham Hotspur, colloquially known as "yids", but don't read too much into that). I also went by "Blue John" at the straight dope message board, but that was brief too because I was speedily banned. Got involved in a discussion of false rape allegations, quoted Otto Weininger a bit, don't know what upset them so much.

If I was choosing a name now I think perhaps Templeton Brewer or Boothby Graffoe. Maybe Grim or Blind Boyard. No odder than my ancestral name, Baumber. Bomber. O-baumber. BAUM-ber.

There's a building in town, it's a shop now, but on the side there's a couple of words carved into the stone, "IMPERIAL HALL", with the square and compass sign in place of As.

Something I once wrote about Arsenal:

As anyone who's read a David Icke book or Arinzona Wilder's book will know only evil and double crosses come out of Alsace-Lorraine. Arsene Wenger, Arsenal Football Club's manager, is an Alsatian. Here's a conspiracy you've never heard of.

Arsenal's colours are red and white, the colours of the murderous secret society the assassins, a medieval Muslim terrorist group. Is it a coincidence that Osma Bin Laden is report to be an Arsenal fan? Look at the strange circumstances surrounding the "food poisoning" or Tottenham Hotspur in their last game of the 2005/6 season, a game crucial to deciding if Arsenal would qualify for the Champions' League, with all the money and prestige that implies, or would they be pipped at the post by Tottenham Hotspur, a club of notorious Jewish sympathies? How is it that only the players were affected by the food poisoning, not the other guests at the hotel or even Tottenham's non-playing staff? The Premier League sent a doctor to examine the players but made a decision before the doctor arrived. Why? The chairman of the Premier League was at Highbury to watch Arsenal's last competitive game there before moving to a new stadium, continuing Arsenal's long history of being cosy with the League, Football and Premier. Was he being buttered up? In the hours before the announcement of the "food poisoning" outbreak odds on Tottenham losing were cut dramatically in Far Eastern betting syndicates. Could this be, not an Arsenal conspiracy, but a continuation of the wave of far eastern gambling interventions in English football previously embodied primarily in the 90s phenomenon of syndicates sabotaging floodlights in Premiership grounds to ensure games would be called off?

Consider, though, the past history of Arsenal Football Club. They extended the Football League into the South, a major part of the League's policy of expansion, effectively scuppering the nascent Southern League and outraging the London Football Association by becoming the capital's first professional club. Tottenham were, of course, in the Southern League. Arsenal then moved from South West London to North London to become Tottenham's local rivals, pursuing a continuing vendetta againt Spurs, the Jewish club. Arsenal obtained their new ground, or the land to build it on, from the Church of England, headed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, a close friend of the Arsenal chairman Sir Henry Norris. Norris was also archdeacon of the masonic United Grand Lodge of England. This was followed by the 1919 scandal whereing Arsenal gained promotion from the second division, again at the expense of Tottenham who were relegated, despite the fact that Arsenal finished only fifth in the second division the previous season, therefor being less deserving of Division One status than Tottenham or the third and fouth teams in Division Two, all of whom went into Division Two. This seems to have been achieved by blackmailing the chairman of Liverpool and Manchester United who had been found guilty of matchfixing by the High Court and were scared of being kicked out of Division One, or even out of the league.

Norris was banned from football for illegal payments.

A film was made in the thirties called the "Arsenal Stadium Mystery". Speaks of influence. The nearest underground station to the Arsenal Stadium was renamed Arsenal. No ordinary team could have done that. Arsenal had the best manager of the era and the most innovative ever, Herbert Chapman.

How did Arsene Wenger, a foreigner, get a job managing a notoriously conservative English club? He was already in line for the job when the previous manager, George Graham, was banned from footbal for a year for taking "bungs". How convenient that this popular and successful manager should be punished for something done by nearly every manager in the country at just the right time to clear the way for Wenger. Wenger's scheme nearly wnet wrong however, when he was denied the job in preference to Bruce Rioch. Rioch didn't last long, though, and Wenger got his job soon enough.

George Graham himself said many people would be glad to see him a punished, as a scapegoat for the others.

I wonder how I came to support Arsenal. Could the devil have been behind it?

Fascism is a constant, even in sport. See the books of Andrew Jennings, the IOC and FIFA have long been run by fascists. AC Milan is owned by a former P2ista. Abramovic, of course, has added an element of murderous mafia money to our national game.

A warm gun

Some thoughts of the first two sinister forces books.

The survival of the templars, he talks about, and almost everything ever written about that is a load of old bollocks. This is no different. Masons may well be partly descended from freemasons, but he doesn't give us any reason to believe so. Nor does the coincidence of Wat Tyler's name (he should have pointed out the possible John Wheaties-esque Cthonic fertility magic inherent in the name Jack Straw, too, and the current government minister of the same name, although I still wouldn't be convinced). The fAact is the templars never went underground. In some countrys they changed their name, like Portugal, in others they merged witht he hispitallers, like France. In England the King liked them and only acted when ordered by the pope, so they had several years after those in France, and were then treated lightly. Most were told to do penance for their crimes (whcih in England were confessed with no duress) in other monasteries. There's plenty of local templar graffiti around here, carved ub tge castle dungeons, in Lincoln castle, in the ruins of their old preceptory at Temple Bruer (where the last Grand MAster of the English Templars was both ordained and arrested), etc. more sinister are the Hospitallers, who became the SMOM (blair, etc). Also the origins of templars and their sucessors.

I disagree that gibberish is of mystical import. Large chunks of his work are gibberish so I can see why he feels some sympathy with it, but the literal meanings of prosaic words are more important that he thinks in ritual magic. Gibberish mostly comes in the form of proper names.

Darwinism, social darwinism that is, left handism (Italian "left handed studies", as he says), are two of a pair. The Cathars weren't restrained ascetics but rather that was their outer persona. The fact is that they were like most cults, one rule for the rank and file and another for the elite. Very much like a modern "Christian" denomination in fact, especially in the more religious countries like America, where the congregants are backwards and often poverty stricken while the leaders have on the big gold ring and the shiny suit (idsregarding of the book of James) and are fucking whores left right and centre behind the congregants back. So it was with the Cathars. The ranks were told that sex especially was bad and forbidden, but that the same went for all worldly pleasures. This of course left the wealth they produced unsquandered so it could be passed up to the rulers of their sect who had no such beliefs. No doubt the Templars practiced in the same way.

He mentions the hashish eaters, but doesn't go into the more interesting matriarchal history of the Muslim heresy. the satanic verses, Kaaba, etc.

He's completely in accord with the mainstream (american) idea that america was founded by idealists looking for a life free of religious tyranny. In reality it was founded by occultists (he doesn't mention this either, but the Salem which trials ended when the governor (who was a known occcultist, as he says) found that his wife had been accused, and put a stop to things). Thos religious figures, the so-called pilgrims, were intolerant bigots who founded themselves universally hated in Britain and Europe for just that reason and so set off to a place where they could enforce their whims to their hearts content. When they briefly ruled Britain during the Protectorate they banned Christmas and football, and they've never been given power again.

clarkson ww2 doc - who won the war, etc., cameraderie

He acts like the Paperclip business was done under the exigencies of (cold-)wartime and was therefore partly justified, but this is the limited hangout position, in fact the Nazis and the American establishment had been best buds before the war, although eh hardly mentions it. Bush's UBC he mentions, but not the GM business and hardly the IBM caper. The Money Plot (of Smedley Butler, etc.) doesn't even get a name check. nor does the American Eugenics movement which spawn Nazi doctrine in the first place.

Although he mentions the Ahnenerbe collection of the skulls of concentration camp victims he doesn't mention those same SS men being dispatched to Tibet, nor the collection of skulls during the Herero revolt in Namibia.

He doesn't mention an important source of post-war funding, the "gold warriors" stash, the stolen loot of the Nazis, the gold Evita took from the Argentine banks the Nazis had stashed it in ($500 million 1945 according to some estimates) or the imfamous gold train.

Gladio doesn't get a mention, nor does it's various aliases or sub-branches (barring an exceptionally brief mention of P2). ONe would think this nexus of CIA spies, fascists and occultopederasts and gun runners would get a mention in a grimoir of political witchcraft.

"You make yourself ridiculous by thinking you can do anything. The world is divided in two. There are the communists on that side and on this side the free world. The Russians and the Americans, no one else. What are we? Americans. Behind me there is the government, behind the government is NATO, behind NATO is the U.S. You can't fight us, we are Americans."

In fact he shows a general contempt for conspiracy, preferring to write things off as coincidences and then pontificate on the role of synchronicity as an independent force in world events.

He claims there's no evidence of a widespread satanic cult of murderers, although he refers to "the ultimate evil" and cites it's proving of a national (at least) satanic cult "based in Minot", as he wrongly puts it. de sade, de retz, montesspan, satanic murder cult through history. No doubt about it.

"if we refuse to believe that..." the CIA, etc., were behind JFK's death, then we supposedly have to find a more occult, sinister, explanation for the "coincidences" surrounding his death. But why the hell would we refuse that?

Strughold and Gerathewohl, two Nazi emigres, studying "motoric responses of the eyes when exposed to light flashes of high intensity and short duration", exactly the basis of the assassination strobe supposedly used against Princess Diana and also tying in with hypnosis (which can be caused by bright lights of high intensity and short duration, noises with the same properties, sexual trauma, etc.). Another thing: I didn't realise Kenneth Arnold had first seen a flash of light before he saw his flying saucers. Keel claims this is usually the case, the light being a hypnotic device of some paranormal sort which causes one to have guided hallucinations, of which the seemingly physical disc are a part. Wellstone, Caradori, etc., killed in small planes. Nearly happened to Arnold too. But he doesn't mention that, despite going into detail on the death of the two air-force investigators at Maury Island. Also doesn't go into Crisman's role in the shaver mystery.

He doesn't mention L ron's two commands, which means he misses some gossip, which he seems quite fond of. His first command he was relieved before the boat sailed. His second he was sacked for depth-charging the sea bed. After his discharge he wrote of for "replacement" medals which he had never been awarded, climing he'd lost the originals, and the Navy sent them to him. He also claimed and received an increase in disability payments from the Navy even after his supposed work in Dianetics had revealed to him the cure for all disease.

He briefly mentions hubbard's debt to Sauder, but not to the German publication "Scientologie" which predates "Dianetics".

"Bluebird of friendliness, like a guardian angel, it's always there."

Olsen was thrown out of that window, see jon ronson, not lsded to death. He makes it quite clear that he believes this but he insists on attributing the death to the effects of LSD and responsibility for such to those who drugged the poor bugger. He has a bizarre theory that the taking of LSD (which Bill Bailey does a good bit n in "Part Troll", if you can find it) is ome sort of mystical initiatory rite, and that the reason Olsen reacted badly (which is highly questionable, as some witnesses claim it had virtually no effect on him) was that he was "going into the abyss" with an unclean conscience, sins intact, as opposed to the clean consciences of the evil but unrepentant men that he worked with, this causing a bad trip. He then talks a load of twaddle about initiatory rites and how Olsen was spiritually sabotaged by not being properly prepared for the "initiatory" experience of forcible doping. Then he remembers that an autopsy showed someone has knocked Olsen out before throwing him out the window, but don't let that get in the way of the woo. Find a book called "Terminate with extreme prejudice", incidentally, refers to a CIA assassination manual which recommends throwing people from high places to disguise head wounds inflicted to passify them so that you can kill them. To be clear, Olsen died because his head was smashed in and he was thrown from a high window, not because he was spiritually unprepared for drug-induced illumination. That fact is the fasting and shriving common to preparatory rites is meant to make people suggestible, and the degree system of initiation allows good people to be corrupted little by little beacuse a slippery slope is easier to lure people onto that a sheer cliff. There's no illumination waiting at the top. To misuse a phrase, it's turtles all the way down.

It's all just Operating Thetans, but Hubbard was a better businessman than most of them.

The correct route is internalisation and independent spiritual development, not cultist obedience a ritualism.

Crowleyan beliefs that a brother of the left-hand path is caused by traversing the abyss without destroying the ego is particualrly mistaken. Who'd have thought it of the people who call themselves Thelemites, "Willists", that they desire only to suppress the ego and consciousness and to become unfree slaves of the id. This is largely what psyops are aimed at, as pointed out in "Death in Washington" by Donald Freed, the Quartered Man strategy was to make people fearful and reactionary, similar to the startegy of tension, to allow dominance of the go by the id, the conscious mind by the demons of the under-mind. The opposite of depth psychology, Freed says. Imagine how much easier psyops would be if everyone became Thelemites and did these things to themselves. This is also what the LSD is about. The entire society had been Olsened, fed drugs without any knowledge of their effect, drugs deliberately spread by the CIA. If it weren't so sad it would be funny to see people crowing about the CIA supposedly shooting themselves in the foot by spreading the consciousness raisers. The trouble is they don't really raise consciousness, no matter what delusions to the contrary they raise in their mind-ravaged victims. They do the work of the CIA, they've been shown to stay in the bloodstream or lodged iin the fatty tissues of the brain for decades and to have a permanent effect on the inhibitions. I suppose if one follows the left hand path (by which i mean the opposite of the Crowleyan left-hand path, I mean the left-hand of the destruction of the Ego and the cultivation of the darkest parts of the id), this lack of inhibitions is good. Certainly if one wants a population of uninhibited, gullible people, it's ideal. Now, who could want that? Only those already in power who wish to control the thoughts of others could benefit from the rise of ego-destroying libidinous sex magic. They sap the will through terror, the little death, with fear mongering and false flag attacks and through the other powerful force, sex. The CIA didn't shoot themselves in the foot, they shot you with a tranquiliser dart.

The cure is, of course, the opposite. Conscious control of one's mind and body, carefully cultivated. The desires slowly brought under control and then extinguished rather than cultivated to new depths and depravities. The Bible recognises this, talking about the necessity of controlling ones tongue, not to mention that adulterous thoughts and actions, or hate and murder, are effectively interchangeable. If you don't control your mind you can't control anything, whether you'rre running at the mouth, running after women or murdering people. Colin Wilson also understands it, talking about the barking of dogs not being under conscious control. Gurdjieff, notoriously unfond of Crowley, tried to cultivate it through his now famous exercises.

lsd weakens the inhibitions/ego/dexter, exposure to great god pan is to be avoided. the orgy of freedom and killing.

lack of sex rituals are still sex rituals, as in the tantric semen storing, and have the opposite effect of the lascivious alternative.

We are owned. - Fort.

Outside the limit of our sight, feeding off us, perched on top of us, from birth to death, are our owners! Our owners! They have us. They control us! They are our masters! Wake up! They're all about you! All around you! -- They Live

I'm not joking about, either. Find "The Jungle" by Upton Sinclair. People falling into vats, ground up, sold as "pure beef lard".

sirhan sirhan, hementions many Arabs being Christian. Of course far more palestinians were before Israel created Hamas.

Not mentioned: the hypnotist bryan's son writing a book about ufos and alien abduction, should be grist for his mill.

manly hall, was it? went into america's special purpose, the real reason for it's settlement and creation.

keehner quit the CIA because of its video sex entrapment techniques. Always nice to see that get a mention, as with Mohammad Atta's girlfriend and the striop club she worked in.

possible to hypnotise someone into murder. None of this "only do things you'd do when awake" rubbish. Not all bad, this book.

christopher lee anti-satanist:

"I am absolutely certain that there are thousands upon thousands of people today actively using black magic to get what they want. I'm sure they're responsible for much of the bad in the world, such as the wars in the Middle East [and] political corruption....

"Black magic has a church-like hierarchy with leaders who want power over people. At the bottom are people who get conned into devil worshipping because they're lonely, insecure, or frustrated....

"My roles in horror films brought me into contact with people who furthered my occult knowledge. I feel very much that it's my responsibility to persuade people to turn away from black magic...and I think my movies do just that by showing the true horror of evil."

oddities of my youth

A few oddities of my youth

There was a very odd school in the forest when I was young. I dsitinctly remember my entire class being taken there for several days, but I can't at all remember what it was all about.

Up on beacon hill I remember various schoolmates of mine referring to "airraid shelters", evidently extensive subterranean chambers. Only once did I ever hear them referred to and I've no idea where they might be.

On the front page of the local papers on a single occasion was mention of horse rippers, a plague of mutilations against local horses. Also the discovery of various bits of pagan paraphernalia such as stone tomahawks. I also once saw some scaffolding on my street with an inverted pentagram built into its side. A local bridge currently has graffiti on its underside reading "do what tyhou will is that whole of the law". The Templars, of course, were kept in the dungeons of the local castle (the then property of the Bishop of Lincoln). They have left various pieces of graffiti, especially ladders, many of which are similar to those to be seen in the cells they were kept in at Lincoln castle.

In 1906, so legend has it, a royal personage came to retrieve something hidden in one of the castle dungeons used by the Templars. The sites bear evidence of ritual use and the retrieval, of who knows what, was from an alcovve in the original stone work which was then hidden behind an eighteenth century layer of bricks (built when the dungeon was used to store imported ice). The story goes that Templars, of some group identifying as such, worshipped down there from their dissoultion in 1312 until the destruction of the castle by Parliamentary forces after the Civil War (during which the town was notoriously pro-Stuart, incidentally, withstanding three sieges, being relieved by Prince Rupert himself and being the place the Scots were besieging when the king gave himself up to them).

The governor during the civil war was supposedly saved from death after abandoning his house due to a series of dreams, the house burning down after a cannon ball hit it.

And there's clay lane, down the side of beacon hill, which is very steep.
