The Haunted Fence of Tankerton

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.

  1. Google 'pareidolia'...

    These are simulacrum. Interesting to look at, but artifacts of human neurology, not paranormal phenomenon.

  2. seeing faces in things is called 'pareidolia'. I have timber just like this throughout my home where I can see faces. The timber was grown & milled locally in the last 30 years. It's not supernatural sorry.

  3. damn

    I really wanted this fence to be haunted ..

  4. Hey I my friends I tell you something can you give me answer. Unroll the chain link fabric on the ground along the fence line. Slide tension bar through the last link on the chain link fabric. Stand the fabric up and lay it against the posts. Fasten the tension bar (that you just inserted) to the terminal post with tension bands (already on the post). Use the carriage bolts with the head to the outside of the fence. Walk along the fence and take the slack out. Loosely attach fabric to top rail with a few wire ties.

  5. Hello

    I am an avid reader of your blog and thought you might be interested in the below clip that my mate sent me. This shop in Whitstable noticed stock was going missing so they went to check the CCTV footage and look what they saw. Seriously freaky.

    Hope you like it



  6. The first two comments hit the nail on the head. This fence is certainly very interesting, but probably nothing supernatural. I'd still be a little freaked out to have it around my yard, though- I get spooked very easily. I went to one of the best Haunted Houses in the PA area last Halloween and almost couldn't make it through the whole thing, even though I knew they were just people in costumes!

  7. does anyone know where this is?
