Does anyone have any idea of the authenticity of the Highgate Vampire? I have been looking for the information, and everything says it is something that has happened, and even has a few pictures of the undead. Any ideas anyone?

Highgate Vampire

the modern case of, in which it was widely reported that a vampire was living in Highgate Cemetery, London.An example of the continuing public fascination with the undead, the Highgate Vampire first came to the publics attention in March 1970, when the London Evening News reported that around 100 people had taken part in a hunt the previous night for a vampire within the dark, moody confines of the cemetery. The focus of the media attention turned to David Farrant and Allen Blood, vampire experts who led the search. Both were convinced that a vampire was sleeping in one of the vaults and were determined to find it and kill it. While blamed for the desecration of tombs and arrested for trespass, Farrant was aquitted on the grounds that the cemetery was open to the public. As is typical of such incidents, stories based on rumor and on unconfirmed sightings soon spread, and the tabloids and newspapers ran exploitative reports. No vampire was ever publicly discovered. One witness reported seeing a gaunt man in black leave the cemetery at night, and a nearby young women was supposedly a victim of the Highgate Vampire. Another expert, Sean Manchester, conducted his own investigation of the affair.

y wots to be confused about?


Seán Manchester led the thirteen year investigation from beginning to end. There was indeed more than one vampire for the VRS to confront. However, in early 1974 he tracked the principal source of the contamination, known as the Highgate Vampire, to a neo-Gothic mansion on the Highgate borders. Here he employed the ancient and approved remedy. No vampire has been sighted in or near Highgate Cemetery and its environs since that time.

hmm i think its all lies. ive read alot about it in the last few days and since im interested in the undead ive read alot about other so called "vampires" and i think sum of the things about this highgate vampire dont match other things ive read.

Two seemingly unconnected incidents occurred within weeks of one another in early 1967. The first involved two 16-year-old convent girls who were walking home at night after having visited friends in Highgate Village. Their return journey took them down Swains Lane past the cemetery. They could not believe their eyes as they passed the graveyard’s north gate at the top of the lane, for in front of them bodies appeared to be emerging from their tombs. One of these schoolgirls later suffered nightly visitations and blood loss. The second incident, some weeks later, involved an engaged couple who were walking down the same lane. Suddenly the female shrieked as she glimpsed something hideous hovering behind the gate’s iron railings. Then her fiancé saw it. They both stood frozen to the ground as the spectre held them in thrall. Its face bore an expression of basilisk horror. Soon others sighted the same phenomenon as it hovered along the path behind the gate where gravestones are visible either side until consumed in darkness. Before long people were talking in hushed tones about the rumoured haunting in local pubs. Some who actually witnessed the spectral figure wrote to their local newspaper to share their experience. Discovery was made of animal carcasses drained of blood. They had been so exsanguinated that a forensic sample could not be found. It was only a matter of time before a person was found in the cemetery in a pool of blood. This victim died of wounds to the throat. The police made every attempt to cover-up the vampiristic nature of the death. Seán Manchester informed the public on 27 February 1970 that the cause was most probably a vampire. He appeared on television on 13 March 1970 and repeated his theory. The VRS, whose specialist unit within a larger investigatory organisation (now defunct) had opened the case twelve months earlier, established a history of similar hauntings that went back to before the graveyard existed. A suspected tomb was located and a spoken exorcism performed. This proved to be ineffective. The hauntings and animal deaths continued. Indeed, they multiplied. By now all sorts of people were jumping on the vampire bandwagon; including film-makers and rock musicians. Most were frightened off. Some who interloped became fascinated by the black arts with disastrous consequences. Meanwhile, serious researchers considered the possibility that a nest of vampires might be active in the area. Yet there seemed to be one principal source which the media had already dubbed a “King Vampire of the Undead".


The couple said they glimpsed something hideous hovering behind the gate’s iron railings, cemeteries are supposed to be sacred places, therefore a vampire shudnt be able to go into them,

Discovery was made of animal carcasses drained of blood, from wot ive read vampires dont tend to drink animal blood, and even if they did i dont think they'd leave it where sum1 cud find it,

if u want to no other stuf about vampires plz feel free to ask, i can help u wiv info about becomin a vampire, destoryin a vampire, detectin a vampire, historical vampires, powers of a vampire, preventin a vampire and protection from vampires, all the info comes from books so i have no idea if it right or not, and i dont really intend to try it out either
