The 2010 Angel Lane, Stratford, London, UK - Haunting/Alien? Visitation Case
Aside from the 2010 happenings that you will read about shortly, Stratford, London has some interesting early folklore to boast about, and here is a good example.
Something strange was seen flying over the Thames one morning in May, 1547. It was a UFO in the sense that no one knew what the object was, but once it landed at Stratford everyone knew what it was and what to do with it. The mysterious flying thing was a man. He was captured by the good people of east London and put in the stocks.
The sighting was recorded by William Fulke, long before people were concerned with little grey aliens. He was told that the devil had been seen flying over the Thames.
Up to 16 years afterwards Londoners claimed to have seen him flying and some still wished they had had guns or arrows to shoot 'Old Nick' out of the sky. Perhaps someone did hit the blighter or may be the devil really does like Stratford. Either way, on landing, despite Satan having taken the trouble to disguise himself as a man he was spotted due to his alien cloven feet.
Now to our 2010 case: It is unlikely that you would have seen or heard about any of this before, as it hasn't, (to our knowledge), been elsewhere on the Net, the TV, or in the papers previously; instead, this information has sat in our archives for a couple of years; only recently, (2014/15), has the case been dusted-off and given a proper airing - and there are good reasons why this is so.
From 03/10/2010, strange happenings started to occur in a Stratford residence ...a property that is located right next to where the London Olympics complex was going to be built.
Just as the ground began to be prepared for the stadium, a number of truly bizarre apparitions were recorded on CCTV, a security system which the elderly owners of this house recently had installed for them at the time to keep an eye on their out-buildings following a spate of burglaries in the area; and it was then that the distressed occupants came to BEAMS for help.
Strange figures and faces, some alien-looking, others ghostly - and what looks like an angel, (or maybe it's a demon), unaccountable lights and mists, were all captured by their video surveillance equipment.
To begin with, we kept in regular contact by email, and the witnesses kindly took photographs from the screen of their computer monitor and sent them to BEAMS.
It must be understood that due to their age, these people had very limited know-how of anything to do with technical matters, and screen shots, (using a handheld camera), were all they could manage for the meantime. I tried asking, but the owners definitely would not part with the recorder's original VCR tapes: So naturally, I planned to visit the house in person, and take a good look around, examine their video footage - and hopefully make a duplicate if I could.
This is a segment of original raw footage of the captured Alien or Demon image, which can be seen at about 0:14, where the figure suddenly pops up, (into our reality?) for a split second. Please bear in mind that these extremely rare pictures were photographed from a basic monitor screen, so the definition and colour quality is quite poor.
Origins of the road name Angel Lane are vague, but it might have some connection with Stratford Langthorne Abbey or the Abbey of St Mary's, Stratford Langthorne, a Cistercian monastery founded in 1135, and/or the land once belonging to Clerkenwell Priory, (approx 7 miles from Stratford), in the 16th century.
Then there is a Knights Templars connection also. Why do I raise the Templars in this particular mystery? because, in early times, an important Templar building is known to have stood just a relatively short distance away from the Angel Lane site, at Temple Mills Lane, which is to the north of London's 2012 Olympic Park.
Although the 'Mills' may not necessarily have been of tremendous significance as far as the history books are concerned, the very fact that this building belonged to the highly secretive Order of The Knights Templar, should not be dismissed lightly. In addition there are numerous natural springs around where they live - and there is a suggestion that a sacred well once existed in or close to Angel Lane.
Please click the link below these words for some more screen shots of CCTV footage captured by this witness; and as a comparison, I have also included a shot of a Templar carving found near Rosslyn Chapel, a 15th-century church located at the village of Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland.

Sadly, owing to extreme personal circumstances at that time, I couldn't keep an appointment that I had made to meet these witnesses; instead, I foolishly enlisted someone else to go on behalf of BEAMS: I considered this person trustworthy, particularly as in recent years he had become the new editor for FSR -The Flying Saucer Review magazine; but things didn't turn out the way I had expected; instead this guy, (I won't mention his name here), came back looking very sheepish. He informed me that the witnesses had suddenly withdrawn completely and wanted nothing more to do with the investigation; needless to say that, as time went on, neither the video cassettes or the witnesses were ever heard of again, despite my repeated attempts to find out more and re-establish communications with the people involved.
Where did the original footage go? you're guess is as good as mine ...I think we all might suspect what the answer is; and the witnesses? why did they suddenly shy away? again, I will leave the reader to ponder over that.

Some noteworthy feedback since publication:
'I think it's fair to say that whatever was captured, it looks like a plasmic being of some type -- its anomalous shapes make it impossible to center on any one favoured explanation -- but I think it does look rather jinn like -- or maybe an elemental rather than a human 'shade' -- it seems highly energised with a blue glow and that inclines me to put this into the Jinni bracket -- my mentor goes to indonesia a lot and he as shown me pics that are of jinn randomly captured and they are in the non-human form -- when jinn fully materialise they have a definite form which is somewhat alarming,-- so these could be terrestrial jinn, elementals -- or simply energy bursts of some kind with shapes being read into them that have no real basis. jinn also show as globes of light either green or blue -- so the jury is out but a very interesting collection of images.'
