This is a sighting brought to my attention by Whitstable resident, SB. A haunted fence sounded intriguing so I headed out to Tankerton straight away. On investigation, I found myself in sudden freak weather conditions - was this an attempt by entities to warn me off?
Rain hammered hard on the pavement and was blown by the sea-wind into waves of spray. As the rain passed a rainbow arched through the sky, and my eyes saw the evil in the wooden fence in front of me.
I'm guessing, but could it be that these are the faces of spirits trapped inside the wood of a Witches Hanging Tree*, which is now buzz-sawed into B&Q fence panels? They seem to be animal faces, perhaps Witches familiars? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Many thanks to SB of Whitstable.

There has been an incredible amount of interest in the last post about The Lurker - It seems I'm not the only Whitstable resident who has witnessed this nocturnal nightmare.
I have received an email from a local father who's 12 year old daughter saw the beast last year, and was left quite shaken. This is a direct transcript from the email I received:
Last year our cat (George) went missing and my daughter was very upset.
She would look out of her window hoping George would appear. One night, just after the sun had gone down, she had gone up stairs to get ready for bed when we heard her scream.
We ran upstairs ‘What’s wrong?’ we asked. She explained she had been looking out of the window when she had seen a ‘thing’ in the back garden.
She continued it was neither a man or an animal. That it stood like a man but had long arms and moved like an animal.
The thing that had frightened her the most was it’s eyes which she said shone out in the dark.
I went outside to see if anything was there but I couldn’t see anything.
The following day my daughter drew the attached picture.
Many thanks to P.E. and N.R.E. of Whitstable - thanks for coming forward, and the drawing is fantastic!

A sunday night in March this year, I was closing the blind at the back of our house and I saw some movement in the dark. Thinking it was a fox, I slowly crept out the back door with my camera and took a snap. The flash caused a great commotion as what I thought was a fox scrabbled to get up and over our fence and shed. It was only when I checked the photo on my laptop I saw that it was no fox... it was a strange, long-limbed monkey type creature. A lurker.
Anyone else seen this creature? If so, drop me a line.
