Paranormal Normandy

France's Normandy coast is probably best known for the D-Day Invasion of World War II or the many painters who famously captured its beaches, pastures, and "light". But there are also mysteries here that defy explanation...

In April 1918, a violent poltergeist outbreak occurred at a home in the famed shipping town of Cherbourg along France's Normandy Coast.

In July 1910, a fantastically large black bird or bird-like object plummeted into the seas off that same-said Normandy coast and vanished. Several sailors on a nearby vessel witnessed the event.

Normandy's Calvados Castle was also home to a poltergeist that lasted from October 12, 1875 to January 30, 1876, terrifying occupants and locals.

In Puys, near the seaside town of Dieppe, two women heard ghostly shounds of a WWII air raid on August 4, 1951.

A recent psychic-led ghost tours of Mortemer abbey would have you believe it is haunted by a requisite lady-in-white and a handful of murdered monks.

With all that happened there, I am not surprised about all the claims of activity.

Seems to have a good geology and moving water, history and dramatic events, so it should be ideal.
