I came across this article on the internet and as the article seems to be anonymous and without copyright I have reproduced it on this web blog as I feel that some people will find it of interest. The account is as follows: When on holiday in Youlgreave in Derbyshire in August, 1991, I found by dowsing that there was a ley running up a garden path of our cottage and through the hallway and kitchen. (It was about six paces wide – the width of most leys. Wider ones seem to be a rarity).
There seemed to be nothing unusual in this finding – it is a strange fact that we always seem to be subconsciously sited in cottages that happen to be on leys. (Yes, it is ourselves in these cases that seem to be subconsciously sited – we get all our cottages from the Church Times, who would no doubt be horrified!)
On the Tuesday evening, however, I noticed particularly strong head-hum while walking down the path to the car to get something from it. On checking with the rods, I found the ley had grown to double its width! I noticed that the sun was just setting, and also that the church bells were ringing, so I felt that one or both could be the cause of the effect. I dowsed the ley continually for a while, and found that the line resumed its normal size after twenty-five minutes.
The next day at sunset, when the bells were not ringing, I tested the line again, and found the effect repeated – it was clearly the sun that was responsible and not the bells. At the same time I tested another line, a ten-pace alignment from the church which ran along the bottom of the garden. This became twenty paces during the sunset period. I was most excited – do all leys double in width at sunset? And what about sunrise?
Testing both leys at sunrise gave exactly the same result – and for about the same length of time. It seemed to be an effect of the sun’s rays passing horizontally across the energy lines.
On arriving home at Addlestone, I tested a ley there – the six-pace-wide midsummer sunrise line through St. Augustine’s Church and our house. Like the Derbyshire lines, it doubled in width, becoming twelve paces wide at sunrise and sunset, and for about the same time again.
At this point I thought of the E-line the Surrey Earth Mysteries Group followed on the Pitch Hill Project, discovered by Eileen Roche and Gordon Millington in November 1990 as a very wide dowsable band of energy crossing Pitch Hill in Hurt Wood, Surrey. The line is usually about 100 paces wide, unique in our experience, and probably a great rarity in actuality. Eileen found at Avebury that even the famed St. Michael Line cannot match it, despite the fact that it, like the other ley, does not pass through a lot of well-known prehistoric sites (although it is a good ley mapwise).
Surely this line could not double? At the earliest opportunity that I could arrange, my wife Doris kindly took me to South Holmwood Church, the most convenient point on the E-line to test the effect. This was on Sunday, 8th September. We arrived just before the time I had come to call “the sunset window”, and I found the line to be its normal width. Then, quite suddenly, it expanded to a staggering 212 paces! A geomantic corridor indeed! I did not ask Doris to stay for the whole hour, but I have no doubt reduction happened at the normal time.
On 13th September I was sent by my employers, the Surrey TVEI Unit, to a multimedia conference at the University of Edinburgh (its Riccarton campus a few miles out of the city). By dowsing I found three leys passing near the Leonard Horner Hall where I was staying. One went slightly obliquely through the end of the building; another almost at right angles to it, skirted the edge of a small lake rather flamboyantly called Riccarton Loch (I did not notice a monster!) The third goes through a large stone which I came to call the Home Stone.
There are many stones placed ornamentally round the campus, but this one attracted me particularly, being in a small clump of silver birch and also being particularly large. A plaque on it announces that it was excavated from the playing field site in 1969 and later that year unveiled by no less a person than Sir Alec Douglas-Home (chancellor of the university) to commemorate the gift of the Riccarton site to the university by Midlothian Council!
Yet despite its recent erection, a ley seems to pass through it to three smaller stones strategically placed on the corner of the road near the playing fields, which were obviously excavated from the hillside (they now form two terraces). Dare I hope that it also passes through the spot where the large stone was found?
All three of these leys were tested at sunrise, and all three increased in size from six to twelve paces. The sunrise window was slightly longer, however – by about ten minutes. This is not unexpected as the angle of sunrise would be more oblique as the location is further north.
On this occasion I tested the effect by standing just outside the narrow width of the ley. It was quite an experience when, suddenly, the rods crossed without me moving! The opposite happened at the end of the window – the rods suddenly uncrossed.
The other lines grew and shrank at the same time (as far as I could tell, as obviously it took a few minutes to walk between them). The dawn chorus of the birds happened at the beginning of the window, but only seemed to continue until just before sunrise (except for the odd twitter now and again).
The sunrise/sunset effect would seem to be one of great importance. It must be like a great standing pulse following the terminator as it rushes westwards round the Earth. There can never be a time when this ever-moving great circle is not stimulating leys to activity somewhere on the planet.
