The ruined Old St Mary's Church in Clophill, Bedfordshire has an enormous reputation for the occult and paranormal. In 1963, graves were desecrated and a skull was impaled on a spike inside the church. Bones were found arranged on a makeshift altar, along with the remains of a cockerel in the celebration of a black mass. The incident made headlines across the world and put the fear of God into the local community. A spate of similar incidents followed in the area with cattle found mutilated, further tombs looted and macabre ceremonies performed up at the church. The incidents gave rise to a huge black magic outbreak across the country. Sinister events have continued at Clophill to this day and the constant defiling of graves has led to an unprecedented number of ghostly sightings at the lonely hilltop setting. This, and the proximity of the village to the A6 site of the Hanratty murder in 1961, combined to give the church a sinister reputation for the occult. Black Magic Church: The True Story of Clophill explores the legend for the first time and includes rare interviews with witnesses to events at this most haunted location.
