The Spectral Hole of Yealmpton Church

The Spectral Hole of Yealmpton Church

I wrote this tale following a small coincidence: as the Florida sinkhole tragedy played out on our TV screens, I happened to be reading the strange story of Reverend Byles and his discovery of a phantom sinkhole in the churchyard of St Bartholomew’s Church in 1947. I visited the village of Yealmpton in Devon over the weekend and learned more about this bizarre (and possibly supernatural) incident. The Diary of Reverend Byles was bourne out of this visit.
