House abandoned by its owners because they hear screaming from the basement

House abandoned by its owners because they hear screaming from the basement 98

There is a house in a Welsh town at the centre of a mystery which has seen its owners fleeing the country in utter terror.

So petrified are they about the sounds they can hear underneath their home that they refuse to step foot inside it ever again.

The police have been called but the sound of screaming coming from underneath the basement has not been identified.

But they are convinced there is something going on below the ground.

The claims may sound outlandish, like something from a Hollywood horror, but there are recordings that the owners have made, inside the property, which they say prove the existence of a dark, sinister secret.

It all started one night in June 2018.

The owners, Alan and Christine Tait, were up late at the Ammanford house when the latter went to the kitchen to make a coffee. While stood over the kettle, she was convinced that she could hear strange noises, and went to inform her husband.

Women and children screaming, heavy knocking and men talking in a foreign language were just some of the sounds that disturbed the couple to the point where, within weeks, they would leave their home of 11 years and vow not to return.

They had no idea where the noises were coming from, but they were coming from somewhere, so they set out to investigate.

“It was like a flushing noise that I heard first,” says Christine Tait from the couple’s camper van that they now live in.

“I told Alan about it and that I couldn’t figure out where it was coming from. He left his phone in the bathroom with the recorder on to try to pick up the source of the noise, and then we could hear a machine running.

“We started to record all over the house, and we picked up the sounds of chains, a motorbike starting, and people screaming.”

It soon became apparent to Mr and Mrs Tait, both 62, that the noises were of a subterranean nature.

They appeared to be coming from the kitchen area. Not directly underneath the kitchen, but underneath the basement that sits below it.

Eager to discover more, Mr Tait dug two 1.5 metre channels into the walls and placed recording equipment inside the shafts created.

In his own words, the sounds he picked up included  “a woman screaming, sexual sounds, dogs barking, a printing press running, a motorbike, a car horn honking and what sounds like a police siren”.

The couple have hundreds of hours of recordings containing different sounds, all of which they claim are coming from underneath their house.

The ordeal has upset them so much that they now travel around the UK trying to spread the word about “what is going on” in Ammanford.

“Hundreds of people have been in touch with us and agreed that this needs to be properly looked at,” says Mr Tait.

“All I really want is an explanation. Why are there people screaming? There must be something going on. We have placed microphones all over the place, because we wanted to prove or disprove what we were hearing.

“Were these noises coming from the main road? Were they coming from a park?

“We put microphones at the front of the house, at the back of the house, inside and out, and in the basement.

“The device we left in the basement picked up the screaming and other noises. The other devices, which were recording simultaneously at the front and back of the property, picked up nothing at all.”

Mr and Mrs Tait sent WalesOnline a key to the house, but advised us that if we entered the property we did so at our own risk.

Despite being in a busy town centre, the property lies hidden down a narrow and lonely alleyway. The street is filled with shops and other commercial properties, bar one empty building next door that is up for sale.

The front door immediately leads to a staircase which rises to a winged 1st floor that is split in two. There’s a room to the right and a larger, sprawling room to the left.

The kitchen sits directly above the now-sealed-off basement.

There is no direct access to the underground space, other than down a small hole with nine feet of darkness below it.

We left our own recording device at the edge of the hole for a number of hours.

Meanwhile neighbours we spoke to were largely unaware of the mystery on their doorstep.

The recording we took showed a single spike.

Unfortunately it was us leaving the property.

The recordings made by Mr and Mrs Tait, however, were carried out inside the walls of the basement, rather than above a hole in its ceiling.

They are adamant that something is going on.

They have set up a petition as they try desperately to get the authorities to investigate further.

They claim police are ignoring their concerns and that “this matter needs an urgent, full investigation”.

Dyfed-Powys Police has confirmed that they have received correspondence from Mr Tait and that officers attended the area in November last year. They did not find any evidence of any wrongdoing.

Their assertion has not weakened Mr and Mrs Tait’s firm belief that there are people – men, women and children – living, sleeping and working underneath the house.

Mrs Tait believes there are “quite a lot of people down there” and that the mystery might be connected to people trafficking, as well as drug manufacturing.

The couple refuse to return to Ammanford, in fear of what they might find. They even say they are concerned for their own safety.

Such is the strength of their conviction that illegal activity is taking place underneath their house, they have felt compelled to flee. They were in Gloucester earlier this year and their story was featured in the local paper, but since then they have moved on again.

They are not prepared to say where in the UK they currently reside and did not want pictures of themselves published in the press.

“We’re travelling around the country handing out posters and fliers about what we think is going on,” said Mr Tait, defiantly.

“We want as many people as possible to know about this so that the police are urged to carry out a more thorough investigation.

“We don’t want to go back until the matter has been resolved.

“I think we’re dealing with a serious criminal gang here, and I think our lives could be in danger if they knew where we were.”

Fact or fiction? The unearthing of a sinister operation or a fanciful horror story? You can make up your own minds. Mr and Mrs Tait already have.

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters?

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters? 117

Having appeared on the network, this photo caused a lot of comments – from the fact that it really was a Guardian Angel who guarded the firefighters during work, to those who assured that all this was just an illusion, no more complicated than a cloud in the shape of a lamb.

At the end of December 2020, while extinguishing a fire in the Polish village of Maldyty, an Angel hovered over the firemen, or at least something like an Angel. This photo appeared on the Facebook page of the Maldyta fire station and generated many comments.

“This is something that was formed during the last extinguishing of the fire from the ignition of soot in the chimney in Maldyty. Write in the comments your thoughts about it,” was written under the picture on their FB page.

Poles are known to be very religious and there are plenty of people willing to comment on the picture.

Many indeed believed that the Angel oversaw the work of the firemen and, perhaps, even helped them to extinguish the fire. But there were also enough of those who believed that it was all just a random silhouette between clouds in the sky and pareidolia (illusion). The photo was taken by an unspecified person sitting in the cab of a car parked next to the burning house.

“Christians have always believed in the existence of guardian spirits. Some call them Guardian Angels. The Bible confirms their existence,” Pastor Leszek Kozheniecki told reporters, commenting on this photo.

By the way, Kozhenetskiy is a well-known Polish pastor who believes in the existence of supernatural beings.

Three years ago, he told the press that he had driven out the evil spirit that settled in his house in Turza Wielka. One of the firefighters who worked on the extinguishing of the house that night said:

“If we have this kind of protection watching over us, I am pretty calm about safety during work.”

Blogger MrMBB333 shared an image of a “mysterious creature.” It was discovered 80 kilometers off the coast of Antarctica in a remote region of Antarctica, according to the Sun.

According to the blogger, the pictures are screenshots from the Google Earth service, which were sent to him by his subscriber and conspiracy theorist under the nickname BONKERS.

They estimate the length of the remains at 3.6-6 meters.I don’t know if it was frozen for thousands of years or appeared recently,- the blogger said.

MrMBB333 believes the skeleton belonged to a dinosaur. He came to this conclusion by examining the front and hind limbs of the creature. His subscribers are sure that these are the remains of a seal.

A google search for seal skeleton images shows a pretty good match,- one of them wrote.

Other subscribers call the skeleton “suspicious”. They explain that “seals have no hind legs.” Another wrote that the remains belonged to an alligator or some other reptile.

In the comments, conspiracy theorists also expressed their opinion that “Antarctica is full of unexplained phenomena that may be related to ancient aliens.”

It is also believed that most of the “discoveries” made by users of Google Earth can be explained by the unusual shape of ice or other natural phenomena.

MrMBB333 uploaded his investigation video to YouTube on January 5. Since then, the video has been watched more than 200,000 times.

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history 120

It is said that there is a mountain in Tibet that contains a network of special formations that extend to the nearest lake. Many researchers believe that this is an artificial pipeline system. But, strangely enough, its origin dates back to the era of the Neanderthals.

This mountain rises about 40 km from the city of Dalingha in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. It is called Baigongshan (White Mountain). In the world, it is better known for the wonderful formations that are in its heart and wide surroundings – they are called the Baigong pipes.

This miracle has been the subject of controversial discussions for many years. Some believe they are a natural formation, but there are many who are sure that someone built them in the distant past to drain the lake. They base their arguments on research results, but there is a catch; the mysterious aqueduct should have appeared 150 thousand years ago. Traces of settlements around the mountain are not even older than 30 thousand years. So who could build metal pipes inside an uninhabited mountain?

There are three caves at the foot of Mount Baigongshan, two of them have already collapsed and are inaccessible, but the largest of them has since been the target of many tourists who come to the area.

The cave looks like it was artificially created by someone. Visibility is enhanced by a massive pipe about forty centimeters in diameter that sticks out of the stone.

Another apparently hollow pipe of the same diameter ran into the cave from the top of the mountain. Another one came from the bottom of the cave somewhere below.

At the entrance to the cave, you can see several other pipes with a diameter of 10 to 40 cm. All this gives the impression of the remains of some ancient system or mechanism. About 80 meters from the cave, Lake Toson sparkles with a large number of scattered pipes on the beach.

They stretch from east to west and have a diameter of 2 to 4.5 cm, these archaeological finds are described by the Chinese scientist Liu-Shaolin:

The unmistakable rust color indicates that they are made of metal. And their craftsmanship showcases advanced attachment techniques. Who could have built such a complex pipe system? Only one who knew well what he was doing and why.

The version that such an engineering miracle was created by the Chinese disappears immediately. The inhabitants of the Middle Kingdom could not build something like that 150 thousand years ago. As the authors of many amazing inventions, bureaucracy became one of them. Therefore, it is simply impossible to imagine that such a large-scale and, without exaggeration, a great construction project was reflected in any ancient Chinese source. Any emperor, during whose reign this happened, would make sure that his great deed was not forgotten by descendants.

Baigong tubes are another unsolved mystery in human history. This find once again refutes the facts of the official history. Where is the true and where is the misconception? Maybe there will be people among the readers who will logically explain the origin of the ancient aqueduct.
