|Isle Of Wight
Gifting April 9th and 10th
At 4.30am I woke and got up, put my bag in the car
and set off for Southampton for my 6am ferry. The
ferry reached East Cowes at around 7am so I
immediately started looking for tower1!
After driving backwards and forth along the road the
tower was supposed to be, I decided to leave this
one and get it on my way back, this had left me
frustrated as I had approximately 90 to find in a
little over a day spread across the entire island.
As the road I was on was heading to Newport, that
was my next destination. Arriving there was a relief
as what I thought was to be three towers centrally,
turned out to be several panels across the roof of
‘town hall’ which I saw upon driving into the town,
these were quickly covered as were all the others on
the map shown below (I had a set of these for all
the towers on the island);
The tower by clissord road happened to be on the
edge of Parkhurst Prison, so I threw a few extra
TB’s around there and a HHg.
Next I drove across to Carisbrooke where there was a
very large array, which again took several passes
along the road before I eventually found the road
(in the loosest possible description of the word! As
I was to find would be a recurring theme to my
trip!), as this was a big one I used a few TB’s and
Next back up to Cowes (the estuary you can see above
splits Cowes from East Cowes). Here there were
several arrays on rooftops, and one big one in a
housing estate, gifted. Also here nearby was BAE
headquarters with lots of radar, and a couple of
small domes, so they got several TB’s and a HHg for
From Cowes I then began my trip anti-clockwise
around the perimeter of the island with brief
diversions inland (as it is a resort island, the
majority of the population is coastal, meaning also,
most of the towers were near the coast).
Shalfleet 1 tower gifted.
Between Yarmouth and Norton 1 Tower, South of Norton
1 Tower Gifted.
Freshwater to Totland Bay 5 Towers Gifted.
Brook (West of) 1 Tower Gifted
Brighstone 1 Tower Gifted, big array south east of
there also gifted (HHg + Tb’s)
Blackgang 1 Big Tower (HHg + Tbs, and a heck of a
climb to it!)
Ventor 4 Towers Gifted (grabbed some crisps and
chocolate for lunch, not recommended, however I
needed some fuel to run, and was behind schedule by
some distance due to pesky geographics!)
Bonchurch 1 huge array on hillside Gifted (couldn’t
get very close so may not be enough)
Godshill 2 Towers gifted
Wroxall 3 Big Towers Gifted (the second and third
were perhaps too far again, so amped up the gifts as
close as I could get due to time constraints)
Luccombe 1 Tower gifted, and another south of
Shanklin 10 Towers Gifted.
Brading 1 Tower Gifted
East of St Helens 1 Tower Gifted
Bembridge 4 Towers Gifted
Nettlestone 1 Tower Gifted (as close as possible)
Ryde 2 Southern most towers gifted
At this stage it was 7.30pm, so I checked into my
B&B with the intention of getting some food after a
brief lye down, then to gift some more that evening.
But, you guessed it, I awoke around 4am! So set my
alarm ready for breakfast.
After breakfast I drove around for another
45minutes, or so, and gifted the other three towers
in central Ryde.
Then I called Pamela Icke who I have been
corresponding with, and she gave me directions to
Somewhat nervous, I made my way there, where I met
Pamela and David who both seemed very friendly and
hospitable. Both were very interested in orgonite,
so over the next hour and a half I described what it
is about and the work we do as best I could. I gave
them 10 interactive HHg’s as a gift and Dennis also
gave me a dowsing pendulum for Pamela which I passed
The conversation was friendly and quickly flowed,
which meant after 10minutes or so my nerves had
thankfully dissipated. It seemed that David absorbed
how orgonite is of such use, and even said that he
would like some to gift a significant place he had
in mind (he did say where, but I wont publicly
repeat it for obvious reasons!). Though David has
rather bad arthritis, so I doubt he will become a
After an hour or so had passed, I asked if I could
bring my car around to give them the CB’s I had
brought over, one for their residence and another
for a friend of theirs.
So I assembled the first and dug a hole, with some
issue as the soil was very rock and slate laden,
and, the only tool I had was my (usually) trusty
trowel! Anyway after some toil the CB was placed in
it’s current resting place (although it may be moved
to another area as they were both a little worried
about it being vandalised etc).
Pamela then kindly
made me a packed lunch (after offering me some food
there, which I declined as I still had several areas
left to gift before catching the ferry back).
I put together the other CB for their friend to
ensure the pipes where placed correctly. With which
I left, asking that they let me know their
experiences with their orgonite (as I had said to
place some by their bed), be it good, bad, or
indifferent. I also left about 3 field HHg’s and a
few TB’s for David, should he feel inclined to gift
the previously mentioned target.
From theirs I drove to the outskirts of Ryde and
found the last remaining tower to gift there, and,
as I couldn’t get very close I scattered several
TB’s and a HHg.
Next I drove to Wootton, and gifted the 4 towers to
the north with several TBs each and a HHg for the
largest, then another tower just to the west of
As I had quite a few TB’s etc left, next I drove to
my second last tower via Newport, as I was passing I
tossed another half a dozen TBs near to Parkhurst
The next Tower was between Chillerton and Billingham,
which turned out to be probably the largest
(definitely the tallest), and as I couldn’t get
anywhere close to it I gifted as near as I could
with several TBs and a few HHgs.
From here I drove back to East Cowes and attempted
to find the final tower which was also the first I
attempted, in vain, to find upon arrival. However,
again I couldn’t locate it by sight, so, just
contented myself by scattering TB’s all around the
area my map suggested it was.
300 odd TB’s (some were also scattered randomly
around the island), 25 HHg’s, 2CB’s later;
After this I drove back to the ferry port in East
Cowes, and, although an hour early, the ferry chap
graciously let me on the earlier crossing.
Back home now, cream crackered!
If there is a moral to this report, it quite
probably is, don’t forget about the dinner you had
cooking in the oven when writing up a long gifting
Many thanks go out to John, Eric and Dennis for
