The case was from the '60s NOT the 80's so I am not sure what your point is?

Are you confusing it with the Enfield case??

Sorry to have to tell you this but that post is from July 2007, which was also the last day that user logged into their account, and she also mixed up events with another story, so I dont think you're going to get much im afraid...

About 30 years ago Colin Wilson wrote a book called "Poltergeist!" and this case about the Pontefract Poltergeist is in it.  I've got the book and it's a great read, but spooky if you are reading on your own late at night.

One thing that Colin Wilson has said in the book Poltergeist a study of destructive haunting is, why would anyone make up the Pontefract Poltergeist, it's activities frighting as they were, were also completely pointless.

Saying "why would anyone make this up?" doesn't make a claim more credible. There's no real way to know what motivates anyone to do strange things.

Hi therandomhero!

This is probably too late because I came across the thread by accident, and you've probably moved on....but for what it's worth, i've known about the Black Monk since I was a child.
My uncle was a neighbour of the pritchards.(their back gardens were adjacent to each other). My uncle 'George Gluck' was pals with Joe and they were  frequent guests in each others homes.
My uncles house was at 25 Chequerfield Avenue, and I cannot remember what the Pritchards street was called, but it was only a few yards away.
Uncle George sadly passed away in 1995, and I have'nt been to the estate since.
All that I can tell you is that uncle George said that he believed that Joe honestly believed that he was being haunted by a real poltergeist! And that if there was any fakery..then it would have been performed by the kids!!
He said that because not long after the 'haunting' had begun , my uncle himself had a brief period where there were tiny stones being thrown at his windows at the back side of the house... The side that was facing the Pritchards house!
It went on for a couple or three days, until my uncles patience had worn away...and on the final night of the annoying pings and bangs coming from the kitchen windows...my uncle ran out into the back garden and yelled threats at whoever was doing this stupid nonsense !!
Of course there was no reply!...But it never happened again!
And though he had no proof...he always said that he was sure that it was the Pritchard's teenage son that had been doing it!

But as for the poltergeist being real?..well uncle George was never sure!...He would just say that Joe and Jean believed it!...but that he never personally witnessed anything otherworldly!...Though he watched his friend turn from non believer to believer, and for a couple of years the mounting tension in the house made him uneasy and his visits came to a stop!


Cheers.

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
