Vampire Hunter Drama Part 3 is part two, and there's a link in there to part one.

Anyway, the arch rival of Sean Manchester, the guy who has been annoying me since I was a teenager and the subject of the last two posts on the subject has emailed me as of last night. This guy has a criminal record a mile long, from digging up corpses and violating them on down.

But at least he's more eloquent in his madness than Machester. here's David Farrant's email to me.

Dear Alex Lucard
I was most intrigued by all your comments here about the so-called Highgate Vampire; not least about myself being a 'vampire hunter'! It would appear that you arrive at most of your conclusions about the Highgate Case and myself from sensational accounts you have gleaned from the internet the problem is however that almost invariably, most of this inaccurate sensationalism as been posted up by Mr Sean Manchester himself (Please note he is NOT a genuing bishop) and if you check back on these accounts you will see that I have only been forced to correct unfounded public allegations made by Mr Manchester himself - albeit frequently hiding behind his usual aliases.

It is not my intention to argue against all the points you have recently made on the insidepulse website, as I appreciate you, like anybody else are entitled to personal opinions (however wrong or misguided these have proved to be in your particular case).

I will just say one thing however, to set the record straight for you - ... I am NOT a 'vampire hunter', in reality I am just a psychic investigator and I do not even accept the existence of 'blood sucking vampires'. Mr Manchester apparently does (as he has publically stated in his self-published book The Highgate Vampire), but that is really his problem! In passing, I can conclude by saying that my non-acceptance of Mr Manchester's ridiculous public claims he makes about 'vampires', has been the main reason for his campaign of hatred against members of The British Psychic and Occult Society and myself.

Yours Sincerely
David Farrant
President BPOS.

NB: In the event that you might be interested my main website can be found at also could I refer you to Occult Forums International Vampire Thread, Off Topic Occult. The link is from which Mr Manchester has just been publically banned (within the last 3 or 4 days or so.

SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP! Sigh. My email to him

Ummm...Dave? That column you read of mine was me printing the whack job hilarious emails Manchester sent me. Re-read the column. Those are his words, not mine with me making fun of him at the end.

It was in reference to the column I wrote back in Jan '05 ( where I recanted the entire Highgate vampire saga.

I know Manchester very well. And by that I mean, I know him by reputation very well, as he's been the butt of American folklorists and parapsychologists for as long as I can remember. Norrine Dresser, Paul barber, Carol Page. All of us snicker quite profusely at the whole "Highgate Vampire" incident.

I'll tell you what I told Manchester: Stop acting like children. Both of you. This happened 30 years ago. My god, both of you are old enough to be at retirement age soon and you're carrying on like schoolchildren about an event maybe 5% of the world remembers and only a fraction thereof even cares that it occured.

All your sniping between the two of you does makes you both look foolish and foppish. Like attention whores deserpately clinging to some sort of public limelight when one of you just needs to start completely ignoring the other. I don't care if he starts it, or is just really good at getting your goat, because the end result is STILL the two of you bickering of the world wide web. Please stop.

Origins of Nazi Smear and Farrant's Weird Wicca Workers Party

It is amusing to see accusations of "Nazism" levelled by Farrant and his cronies against Bishop Manchester.

Where is the evidence?

All we have is Farrant’s word and a thirty-year-old Sunday People article in which Farrant colluded with a journalist to besmirch the bishop. This article, however, did not accuse Bishop Manchester of Nazism. Quite the opposite, in fact, if it is read properly.

What Farrant had in common with the journalist responsible for the article is a penchant for alcohol. Indeed it was alcoholism which lost Thorne (the Sunday People reporter) his marriage and his job with Mirror Newspapers. He was obliged to go freelance thereafter and live abroad, mostly in unemployed capacity.

It was not Bishop Manchester who threatened to stand as a WWP candidate at the 1978 General Election on a platform that might well have been that belonging to the National Socialist Party. It was Farrant.

It was not Bishop Manchester who claimed in the press that he had amalgamated with other political parties, eg the National Front. It was Farrant.

It was not Bishop Manchester who used Neo-Nazi runes as logos on his circulars. It was Farrant.

It was not Bishop Manchester who cultivated Neo-Nazi acquaintances as friends and supporters. It was Farrant.

Bishop Manchester, whilst Farrant was promoting the WWP, held membership in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament for which he later became North London Regional Co-ordinator under the then chairman Bruce Kent. The bishop was also a member of Pax Christi for which he is now representative in the UK for traditional Old Catholics.

Ironically, whilst North London Regional Co-ordinator for CND, the bishop and those assisting him at a CND backed "Christmas Fast for Peace" were physically attacked by members of the National Front. The fast itself, which was organised by Bishop Manchester and lasted an entire week, was supported in person by Lord Fenner Brockway who admired the bishop and all he was doing for the peace movement.

Bishop Manchester has appeared on television and radio programmes over the years to oppose the arms trade and war. He actively opposed the Vietnam War. He actively opposed the Falkland's War. He actively opposed both Gulf Wars. In fact, Bishop Manchester opposes all war and has been an anti-war campaigner his entire life.

One of the bishop’s closest friends and fellow priests is someone of African origin. See link below. Not the obvious choice for a man whom Farrant and his cronies would have you believe is a "Nazi."

Everything being levelled against Bishop Seán Manchester is on the say-so of a convicted felon with a grudge going back decades; someone who is a pathetic little man convicted of indecency in a Barnet churchyard, threatening people with black magic, desecrating and vandalising Highgate Cemetery. Someone, moreover, found to be a compulsive liar by magistrates, judges and juries. All the malice, misrepresentation and mayhem stems from this one person. Only a misguided fool or someone with an equally depraved agenda would take any notice of him.

“I have spent most of my life studying accounts of vampirism, and have indeed visited Highgate Cemetery on numerous occasions. How it has changed over the years! I am interested in research into any accounts of actual vampirism, from the writings of Dom Augustine Calmet through to modern day accounts. I have a copy of The Highgate Vampire [by Seán Manchester] which I found very interesting. I remember the events at the time they happened and the various newspaper reports. It was then that I first came across the name ‘David Farrant.’ I met him once in a pub near Highgate and found him to be a compulsive liar and there was something shifty about his mannerism. I have since warned many people to stay clear of him.” ~ Andy Pryce, Birmingham (UK), 19 February 2001

Are you implying that he digitally edited those photos?
