A request from a journalist
I hope somebody here can help me.
I'm a journalist based in the east midlands and I've been asked by an outdoors magazine to write an article about walks through haunted regions, mysterious places and sites of paranormal significance.
I say "asked by the magazine", in fact I came up with the idea and the editor said "yes". I like pitching stories that are a bit different.
So, the idea is that I try to find a rural walk of up to six miles that takes in one or more of the following: haunted forests, hills or valleys, deserted villages, ley lines, UFO sightings, sites of grisly deaths or unexplained phenomena.
I will choose a walk to take at dusk, taking night time and infrared photographs. The feature will also include descriptions of the other walks, with location maps.
The whole idea of this is a different take on a walk in the country; rambling with spice. I am not doing this to mock people or ridicule their beliefs. I should say that I am a sceptic, but also anticipate feeling quite thrilled by the experience.
Please feel free to pass this message on to whoever you think might be able to help me. Post replies here or email me direct: firstname.lastname@example.org
