James Berry (1851 – 1913) served as an executioner from 1884 up until 1891. He was an alcoholic and 13th February 1904 was set to be the last day on earth for Berry, he set off to commit suicide. This then became the very last thing on his mind as he read about mysterious lights appearing during a religious revival at Barmouth. He then got into a conversation with a stranger, who was an evangelical Christian, and following this set out on a new path as a preacher.

The report may have been similar (or even this one) by the Daily Mirror who reported how it shone like a carriage-lamp and as he got closer the light changed into a bar of intense blue light. Those on the other side of the light did not report this change as they watched it.

These lights are associated to the same thing as Earth Lights. The lights in Barmouth are hypothesised to be a geological phenomenon. It was found that the lights were not reported after that time and they had indeed occurred shortly after an earthquake (a local one that was most likely very minor but I haven’t been able to confirm this). The curious thing I have found about earth lights in the readings I have mustered the time to make (and I wish I had more) is that there are so many varied reasons about them and they can range from UFO, ghost to natural phenomenon.

James Berry may well have read about a very natural event but the one thing it did do was save his life.
