Matthew Hopkins was one of the most notorious names in witchcraft, and was known as the 'Witchfinder General'. In just 14 months, together with his henchman, Hopkins was responsible for the condemnations and executions of at least 230 alleged witches, more than any other witch-hunter during the 160 years of England's witchcraft hysteria. There is no documentation that recorded how and when Matthew Hopkins died, but one of the myths that still circulates is that he himself was accused of being a witch and was executed accordingly. All that is known for certain is that he was buried on August 12th 1647.
The ghost of many of the alleged witches that were executed are said to still wander the town. There are also reports that Matthew Hopkins' spirit haunts the Mistley Pond, especially on Friday nights as it is close to the Witches Sabbats.
This was the team's second three night extravaganza, and this time they were on the lookout for the spirit of Witchfinder General Matthew Hopkins himself. They visited St. Nicholas Church where there was very little paranormal activity apart from one of the standing lights falling over of as well as the sound of the church door banging, both of their own accord. Derek then picked up on a number of witches whose spirits still haunted the graveyard. The second night led them to the Manningtree, where again very little happened apart from Yvette sinking into the mud of a nearby bay.
The team hoped that a visit on the third day to Mistley Towers, the remains of a church built in 1776, would be more successful. Some odd sounds occurred during the séance that they performed in one of the towers, but that was all. The investigation concluded with a visit to the Thorn Hotel where Derek underwent a deep possession by a violent and badmouthed entity, who became aggressive towards Yvette and seemed to be unhappy in the presence of women.
