Mysterious sound haunts the English countryside for many years



For several years now, the inhabitants of Holmfield, a village in Yorkshire (England), have been suffering from a mysterious hum, the source of which has not yet been discovered, reports

Interestingly, not everyone can hear it, but those who have heard say that it seriously influenced their lives.

The “Holmfield hum,” as the mysterious low-pitched sound haunting the English village of Holmfield has come to be known, has made local headlines. This phenomenon has been around for at least a couple of years, but so far no one has been able to locate its source.

It is reported that local authorities have conducted an investigation and also hired independent experts to get to the bottom of the mystery, but so far their efforts have been in vain.

Residents of Holmfield who hear the mysterious hum describe it as the hum of a washing machine or a diesel engine idling.

This is not the most annoying sound in the world, but after a while it takes a toll on a person’s mental health and general well-being. It interferes with their sleep and mood, and some claim to be on the verge of a nervous breakdown because of it.

“I love my house, but sometimes I absolutely hate being in it. It feels like there is no happy place anymore,” Holmfield resident Yvonne Conner recently told the BBC. “I can feel it with my eardrums. It resonates and feels like pressure on them.”

“It makes you feel frazzled because it gets even worse at night, so it’s hard to sleep,” said local resident Zoe Millar. “We thought about moving, but why should we do it if it’s not our fault?”

Conner, Millar and others who claim to hear the mysterious sound say it has been torturing them continuously since 2019, but despite repeated requests to the local council to identify its source, no one knows where it comes from.

During the investigation, the council announced that they had identified three possible sources, but they ultimately concluded that no cause had been found.

“We put a lot of effort into this investigation because we care about the locals and understand the impact the alleged noises have had on some residents,” council member Jenny Lynn said in an interview with Yorkshire Live.

The failed investigation has left many of Holmfield’s residents in despair, as it essentially means continuing to live with constant noise or moving out of the house to avoid it.

For many, either option is unacceptable, but the reality is that these kinds of low-frequency beeps are notoriously hard to track, and the fact that not everyone hears them only complicates matters.

Holmfield is located at the bottom of a valley and is surrounded by industrial sites that the villagers have blamed for the noise in the past. However, investigations into the mysterious phenomenon have not found any evidence of this.

Acoustic expert Peter Rogers told the BBC that sound is a very complex topic and that in this case the infamous hum could indeed be caused by some kind of industrial activity that only some people can hear. Or it could be something mundane, like running water through a pipe, a humming transformer, or a telegraph pole.

Others suggest that their town has become a testing ground for new acoustic weapons.

“It’s like looking for the elusive needle in a haystack,” Rogers said. “If you imagine the sound environment that people live in, there are all sorts of sounds coming and going day and night, so you have to effectively turn everything off to start searching.”

Holmfield Council says it won’t happen any time soon, but locals have said they won’t stop until the source of the agonizing rumble is located.

Vatican investigates potential miracle at Connecticut church




The Catholic Church is reportedly investigating a potential miracle that occurred at a church in Connecticut, reports

The supposed miracle took place at St Thomas Church in Thomaston, Connecticut, according to the Hartford Courant.

Revered Joseph Crowley, who heads St Maximilian Kolbe Parish, which
includes St Thomas Church, reported that the wafers distributed during
the observation of communion multiplied while sitting inside the

“God duplicated himself in the ciborium,” Rev Crowley
said after communion, referencing the metal storage containers used to
house the communion wafers. “God provides and it’s strange how God does
that. And that happened.”

response, the Archdiocese of Hartford began an investigation to
determine whether or not a miracle had occurred at the church.

then, the Vatican’s Dicastery for the Doctrine of Faith, a group dating
back to the 1500’s tasked with promoting and defending the Catholic
faith throughout the world, has been notified and has begun its own

A spokesman for the archdiocese, David Elliott,
issued a statement to the Hartford Courant saying that “reports such as
the alleged miracle in Thomaston require referral to the Dicastery for
the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome. The Archdiocese has proceeded
accordingly, and will await a response in due time.”

Miracles are
an important part of the process of becoming a saint within the Catholic
Church. Sainthood considerations typically begin five years after the
death of an exceptional Catholic.

number of criteria must be met, including “verified miracles” — Vatican
officials must determine that the miracles are a direct result of an
individual praying to the candidate saint. They must come to the
decision that the miracle was a result of the dead potential saint
interceding between the petitioner and God, causing the miracle.

Catholic Church defines a miracle as a “sign of wonder such as a
healing, or control of nature, which can only be attributed to divine

While duplicating thin bread wafers may seem like a minor
use of divine power to those unfamiliar with Catholic theology, the
Eucharist — often called communion or the lord’s supper — is arguably
the holiest and most important sacrament — or ritual — in the faith.

typically believe in the idea of transubstantiation, or the idea that
the bread and wine given during the ritual literally become the body and
blood of Jesus Christ upon consecration, as opposed to simply symbols
of his presence.

O’Neil, who goes by the moniker Miracle Hunter, authored a book called
Science and the Miraculous: How the Church Investigates the
Supernatural, spoke to the Hartford Courant and gave examples of
previous eucharistic miracles.

“There are various types of
eucharistic miracles, but the ones that are most remarkable, in my
opinion, were on some rare occasions, the host is said to bleed human
blood,” he said.

Reverend Michael McGivney, the founder of the
Knights of Columbus, ended his clerical career at St Thomas, where the
alleged communion miracle took place. He has been in consideration for
sainthood and requires one more verified miracle before he moves on to
final consideration for sainthood within the Catholic Church.

Leonard Blair explained to the Hartford Courant that “what has been
reported to have occurred at our parish church in Thomaston, of which
Blessed Michael McGivney was once pastor, if verified, would constitute a
sign or wonder that can only be attributed to divine power to
strengthen our faith in the daily miracle of the Most Holy Eucharist.

would also be a source of blessing from Heaven for the effort that the
US Bishops are making to renew and deepen the faith and practice of our
Catholic people with regard to this great Sacrament.”

“Blessed” is a title given to saint candidates who have had “verified” miracles attributed to them by the Vatican.

why this occurs.

seeing dead relatives, dead friends, old pets that have passed on –
spirits, angels, that are visiting them.
