PLEASE NOTE – CHANGE OF SPEAKER NEXT TUESDAY 13th NOVEMBER

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

For personal reasons Maria Wheatley is unable to join us next Tuesday 13th November.

We thank NIGEL TWINN for offering to give us a talk entitled ‘The Linear Landscape – Long Straight Lines in the Ether’.

All dowsers find various straight flows and currents when they are out in the field which is confusing. Nigel will discuss the difference, significance and even existence of many types of linear feature. Ley lines will be mentioned but there is much more to earth energy dowsing to discover.

The Elongated long skulled people of Stonehenge

Using dowsing Maria Wheatley was drawn to a particular long barrow on the Salisbury Plain. She began to research the person that was buried within the sanctity of the mound and discovered the person was a woman. Tracking the skull down to one of Britain’s most prestigious universities, Maria noted she had a long elongated skull and she was probably a high queen or high priestess of Neolithic Stonehenge. Were these the people that first laid out the ley system of the British Isles? The forgotten history of her long lost civilisation unfolds with more twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel, but as we know, fact is often far stranger than fiction….

FURTHER DETAILS FOR OUR VISIT TO St. NECTAN’S GLEN & AREA this Saturday 18th August

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

ST. NECTAN’S GLEN & WATERFALLS, ROCKY VALLEY and BOSCASTLE this Saturday 18th August 2018

Just a reminder that we are meeting in the ‘Waterfall’ car park at Trethevy at 10am on the main coast road (A3263) between Boscastle and Bossiney, near Tintagel. The car park is on the ‘sea’ side of the road and is signposted. The post code for the Glen is PL34 0BE.

If you haven’t already paid, entrance money (£5.35 for those under pension age, £4.70 for concessions) will be collected at the start. It would be helpful if you have the correct money.

Walking left out of the car park, the path for the Glen and Waterfall is a few yards on your right opposite the bus stop on the left.   The walk is about a mile in length and at the beginning you will see St Piran’s Holy Well and the church of St. Piran. Take the path to the right of the church down to the Glen and waterfall. Notice the ancient stone in the wall on your right just past the church.

As the path is stony, and can be muddy and slippery on the steps, make your own way carefully down the Glen. Please wear sensible footwear, and if you want to see the waterfall you will need wellingtons. Walking poles may be useful too. They have a small supply of wellingtons at the shop which can be borrowed.

‘The Cabin’, their new café, serves a range of freshly prepared hot food, soup, sandwiches, cream teas, drinks, ices, cakes etc. It might be sensible to give them notice if you require a hot meal. As it will be mid morning most of us will have a coffee and then wander back to the car park for our own food at lunchtime.

Around 2.30pm we will walk or drive the short distance to visit Rocky Valley to see the carved labyrinths and attempt to age them. Turn right out of the car park and the entrance to Rocky Valley is about half a mile on your right by Trevillet Mill. There is a lay-by opposite for parking for a few cars otherwise it is fine to leave your car where it is and walk, but take great care on the bends.

At approx. 4.30pm we plan to have a look around Boscastle meeting at the entrance to the large car park at the back of the village.

Remember to bring your rods and pendulums, and cameras to hopefully capture some Orbs.

See www.st-nectansglen.co.uk and www.nationaltrust.org.uk/rocky-valley-walk

Members are reminded that attendance at Devon Dowsers outdoor events, for them and their guests, is at their own risk.

OUR TRIP TO ST. NECTAN’s GLEN, ROCKY VALLEY & BOSCASTLE – 18th August

OUR TRIP TO ST. NECTAN’s GLEN, ROCKY VALLEY & BOSCASTLE

Saturday 18th August starting at 10am

Thank you to those of you who have already put your names down for our trip to St. Nectans Glen and area on Saturday 18th August.

There is a change to the entry price as they now offer a reduced price of £4.70 for Pensioners which is cheaper than the group rate.  So we have therefore decided that Pensioners will pay £4.70 which at the present time does not leave enough people to get our discounted group rate.  Hopefully numbers will increase before the day and we will be eligible for the discounted rate of £5.35, otherwise I’m afraid the full price of £5.95 will be charged.

There is plenty to see – a new woodland walk and two more waterfalls plus a new café and shop.

If you would like to join us please let us know by contacting us via the Contact Page on this website or phoning 01626 867451 and leaving a message. Payment can be made on the day.

Our plans re camping and ‘staying over’ have also changed too and we will not be doing that now as nearby camp sites are full, many have a two night minimum stay in August and of course prices are at their peak.  So we will now just be going for the day meeting at the car park (between Boscastle and Tintagel) at 10am to arrive at the waterfall at 10.30am when it should be quiet.

More detailed directions will be available nearer the time.

You will need wellingtons to see the waterfall and a camera to capture orbs (hopefully).

Thinking of joining Devon Dowsers?

Dowsing is a means of searching, not using our normal senses, and can be done on site as well as remotely (e.g. map and information dowsing). It is an ethical activity used for the greater good. Devon Dowsers welcomes those who have a fascination for this ancient art, and who wish to share their experiences with other open-minded members.

We always welcome new members, so please see our current programme  and come to a meeting to check us out. To learn more,  get in touch through our contact form. We’d love to hear from you.

DFEST

23 & 24 June 2018

South Zeal, Devon

As the nights draw in and winter approaches, we can look back to June’s sunshine and reflect on the success of DFest, the first South West Dowsing Festival. Over 100 people attended and used the evaluation form to share how much they had enjoyed the weekend. It was a chance to dowse at some of Dartmoor’s iconic sites, to listen to engaging speakers, and to attend fascinating Dowsing Workshops.

A digital souvenir report is available HERE and under the Activities menu. We hope this will provide you with enjoyable memories and provide inspiration with your dowsing throughout the winter months.
