Portals of London

Towards a catalogue of London’s inter-dimensional gateways


Welcome


Important: This blog is not a user’s guide.
It is unclear why London is such a centre for interdimensional portals. From doors between worlds to spacetime-crunching wormholes, the city’s fabric, dimensionally speaking, seems to be uniquely porous.
But if there’s one thing more striking than the number and diversity of portals in the UK’s capital, it’s the strength of the almost wilful effort by London’s inhabitants to forget that these gateways exist at all.
There are signs that this is changing, however. We have been surprised and gladdened by the amount of people we’ve met who explore, discuss, research and yes, sometimes even use London’s portals. In fact, if it wasn’t for the shared knowledge of this network of portologists, this project may never have begun. Perhaps PoL is carried by the crest of a resurgent wave of interest in the city’s gateways.
This blog is an attempt to collect stories of these phenomena – be they historical or contemporary, well-documented or shrouded in myth – in the hope that one day a comprehensive catalogue or encyclopedia can be put together. Posts will range from relatively well-known portal history, like the electrically powered 19th Century craze for ‘world doors’ or the 1980s academic renaissance, to re-examining local folk tales, historical sources and obscure news stories, in the light of modern-day portal knowledge.
It is important to note that posts won’t always recount dyed-in-the-wool cases of interdimensional openings. By including speculative examples and highlighting curious anomalies in the accepted reality of our city, we hope to pique the interest of those who have the time and skills to dig around and see what’s there.
There are a lot of stories to tell, but we at PoL also have responsibilities here in ‘base’ London. We hope to post at least once a fortnight. Sometimes this will be just a few photos, or a few words, other times we will have gotten the chance to delve a little deeper into a story.
It’s an incredible history – best of all, it’s ongoing. We hope you enjoy reading the posts, please remember this blog does not claim to be a user’s guide, and if there’s anything you know that we don’t, please do get in touch.

Under river, outside time: The Woolwich Foot Tunnel Anomaly




When the Woolwich foot tunnel closed for repairs in 2011, it should have been a routine job. The pathway had been providing pedestrians with a quick route beneath the Thames since 1912. A century on, a few minor improvements were necessary. Contractors were hired to plug holes, improve access and bring communications capabilities into the 21st Century: swapping leaky tiles for a leaky feeder.
But Woolwich residents will recall that the refurb of this much loved and much used walkway did not go according to plan. When it finally re-opened it was 8 months behind schedule, having been closed for more than a year and a half. What the average Woolwich dweller doesn’t know, however, are the unusual circumstances behind this delay.
Part of the works were to update the lifts
Mention the 18 month time frame to someone who worked on the Woolwich Tunnel job and you may be met with a mysterious smile. A year and a half may have seemed a long time to those who relied on the tunnel for their daily commute. But for those who were down there beneath the river, that time-frame has a different meaning. When one contractor tells me he aged 3 years on the Woolwich job, it is not a metaphor. For, deep down beneath river and clay, hidden from those above ground, something was occurring. That something was a time anomaly.
A time anomaly, from the perspective of someone who experiences it, involves a clearly defined part of landscape or architecture, in which time ‘stops’. Years of study into such phenomena has proved largely fruitless in terms of explanations. And even less so when it comes to predicting when and where they might arise. There is some anecdotal evidence that temporary spaces, or spaces temporarily under a different use, lend themselves to time anomalies, and the Woolwich event would appear to support this.

Have you been to any of these places? If so, what was it like? If not, is there a road trip in your future?
The Woolwich Tunnel sounds creepy.

I'm not a fan of London, I'm afraid, so I have no plans to visit. I just found the website very entertaining and TIC (hence the folder placement).

Here's a youtube video of same :-

No I’ve never been and this is the first I’ve heard of it, fascinating though.
Lots of ghostly things in the UK. Woooooooo!!!

I have never been to London or UK for that matter, but through reading the Mists of Avalon I became aware that interdimensional portals are what is behind the myths of Avalon (Glastonbury) and Camelot. Apparently the portal of Camelot is the ancient hillfort where the castle of Cadbury was later built. London seems to be a confluence of magnetic ley lines, waterways, and also a confluence of a great swathe of humanity. Many times a natural running stream (what we could call a creek) that may have been a location where Druids lived in times past, has been overbuilt by urban development and expansion, and the original stream is sometimes completely covered over and forgotten. Basically, layers of concrete are not enough to tamper with the multi-dimensionality of a place and so anomalies will continue to make appearances.

The River Fleet is the largest of London's subterranean rivers. Its headwaters are two streams on Hampstead Heath, each of which was dammed into a series of ponds—the Hampstead Ponds and the Highgate Ponds—in the 18th century. At the southern edge of Hampstead Heath these descend underground as sewers and join in Camden Town. The waters flow 4 mi (6 km) from the ponds to the River Thames.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Fleet

I have heard that the part of Fleet Street (under which the old River Fleet flows) at the location of Temple Bar is one of these spatio-temporal anomalies. Does anyone know any stories of this particular location?

I've found some vague links to this website:-


Checkout the calendar:-


I'm wondering if Vanessa Woolf and/or George Hoyle have anything to do with Portals of London.

Neverwhere episode - got as far as the guy eating the rat, and I knew it was not for me. O.o:D

There are several Ley lines crossing through your island, plus all that Celtic history - lots of stuff going on there for a long time!!!

One of the sad things that happened was the Druidic punishment of sealing up a mis-doer in an oak tree - until they died. The space within the bole of the tree may have been quite large, though it may have been cramped. You would have nothing except listening to the growth of the tree, the sap running, the wood growing etc. Likely in one of the large uncut forests, so it was nature sounds all around. But I suppose starvation and lack of water got you before too long. I think any entrapment experienced during a death does not lead well into a new incarnation.

Maybe that's why the Romans were afraid of the druids and seemed determined to wipe them out.


Ending with the battle of Ynys Mon around AD60 when the druids were finally defeated by Suetonius Paullinus.

I checked out all my old links to ley line websites, they all seem to have disappeared, even the internet archive seems to have been wiped of the better ones. So I will just have to make do with what is available on the net today (someone wants ley lines info not to be easily available - hmmmmm!).

Bethe - Hagens did comprehensive research on the geometry of Ley lines. I had the program installed with Google Earth on my old computer. Then Google Earth was upgraded to require Chrome, which I don't want anything to do with. However, if you have Chrome, then there is a program for these lines.

My sources believe the Bethe Hagens work is superior as it looks at more than just the well-known Ley lines. If you are interested, here is a link.

Bethe Hagens, yes there is a section on the mission-ignition website, I should have remembered. I should also have realised that google earth is being used now (I won't touch google chrome either, but there is chromium, vivaldi, etc.).

That link is the updated web page for one of my missing links.

A couple of links for London :-

An idea popped into my head as I reading the latest Topi article. https://www.transients.info/roundtable/threads/mathematical-games-with-the-33-and-the-42-timelines-and-the-origin-of-the-line-numbering.7266/

Do any of the Ley lines and/or geometric shapes noted by Bethe-Hagens incorporate 42?
Checkout cymatics and the platonic solids that represent different frequencies. The platonic solids then create the respective earth grid associated with each level of vibration.

Is this the best place to leave this thread or does anybody have any more questions ?

It could go on the Ancient Civilizations and Sacred Geometry board.
Do you want me to move it?
