Strangely enough, My friend Bec, My girlfriend Charlotte and I visited the ruins today at around half past 8 at night.
As we got to the only visible turning point there, being the little gravel lay-bi opposite the black fence and gate way. i turned my car around and parked there, as soon as i went through the gate, i felt cold, like i was being watched. Previous to this when we was driving toward the gravel road that leads to it, my friend bec saw a figure/person standing at the top window of the tower, now obviously theres no floor or anywhere to stand at the top its just a hollow tower. So baring that in mind i was very cautious. walked around the back of the tower just out of pure interest. Anyway i had a look at the front then became immediately uncomfortable, read the cards for John because i was interested in what had happened there, read them then made our way to the car, as we got back onto the gravel path, the wind picked up quite alot, then out of no where heard music, so me bein the twat i am, said hello? who's there? just to scare my girlfriend, then the music just stopped and i felt really cold, got in the car, sped off and as we was travelling now on the main road, looked back at the tower, again we saw the figure at the top, but as we was leaving the ruins, we saw a very tall, very big figure watching us and smiling, it was rather disturbing and very scary!

that's hilarious

I used to go up there frequently with my mates about 10 years ago. Was just thinking about it and did a search and got this. It's a very spooky place, apparently the design / shape is to do with devil worship and has a lot of dark rumours attached to it's history. I used to take the girls up there, freak em out, and them comfort them in the back seat. GREAT PLACE FOR AN ILLEGAL RAVE!

I think I'd have been freaked by that too. The monument is pretty cool and interesting during the day. Gotta be scary at night. and with that hanging from the front. Not good.

Its a shame its still in ruins and nothing came from the bloke who wanted to make it liveable.
