The Shugborough Inscription

Taken by me about 10 or 11 years ago, this photo shows the mysterious "Shugborough Inscription," at the old and historic Shugborough Hall, Staffordshire, England - situated about a 20-minute drive from where I used to live.

So, what is the Shugborough Inscription? Well, you can find all about it right here. But, basically, it's perceived by many as being some sort of deep and dark secret code that, at various times, has been linked to Canada's Money-Pit, the Holy Grail, buried treasure, and has attracted the attention of wartime code-breakers, authors, the media, and many more!

Not only that - Shugborough Hall is a definitively odd and distinctly Fortean locale, too. There have been at least three sightings of spectral, hairy-man beasts roaming around the nearby woods, as well as (in the 1980s) a series of unsettling animal mutilations in the area.

In addition, "Shug" is an old English term for demon. Shugborough: The borough of the demon.

Man-Beasts, secret-codes, the Money-Pit, Mutes and more - someone needs to write a book or do a full-blown documentary on Shugborough! In terms of high-strangeness stakes, this place has just about everything!

  1. I have given careful consideration to the Shugborough Inscription and have come to the conclusion that it can only be translated using the Voynich Manuscript.

    Or am I the only one who ever noticed that when you do an on-line FOIA search of the NSA's records concerning UFOs they hand you (among other things) a copy of The Voynich Manuscript - An Elegant Enigma by Mary D'Imperio?
