Mr Gilbart-Smith is this your life?

Please follow and like us:

Denham Gilbart-Smith you were born in 1947 and from the age of six you went to Great Walstead School in Sussex, then a public school in Dublin where you state that there was homosexual activity in the school but you weren’t involved. After leaving school you lived with your family in London and at the age of seventeen you went to work at your father’s insurance business in the City.

In 1964 you moved from London to Maidenhead. At St Mary’s church you met a nest of paedophiles namely; Donald Prescott, who was the psychopathic warden of Green Field house children’s home Maidenhead. Other paedophiles you went to church or associated with were Clemence Prescott, Ted Burkett, Tony Knott, Clive Bristow who died of aids, Michael Moore (insurance broker aged late 60’s 70’s) to name a few.

In 1967 you claim to have committed your life to Christ at a Billy Graham crusade in London but also during the period 1966-1970 you visited Green Field House where you raped and abused at least 12 boys as young as nine. During this time you were photographed by *Tony Knott naked performing sexual acts with Robert A.

*Tony Knott is a convicted paedophile photographer

In 1970 you stopped visiting the children’s home. Also in December of 1970 your father Oliver, was shown your blackmail photos he responded by paying Prescott a large sum of cash for the photos. In turn with the Gilbart-Smith cash Prescott bribed a DC Carstairs to. (alive and living nr Bracknell 2008) However, unfortunately for you, the Green Field House saga didn’t end there and the blackmailers would come back to haunt you throughout your adult life time and time again!

Denham Gilbart-Smith you met your fifteen year old wife to be Lesley, whilst you were a church youth group leader in your late twenties and for the next few years you attended David Pawson’s church in Guildford whilst doing remarkably well in the city making many millions. You had four children which you named after bible characters; Adam, Matthew, Luke and Ruth.

Sometime later you became a leader in the River Church Maidenhead until you were eventually excommunicated for inappropriate sexual relationships with church members, this came to light after a five year affair with Julie B was exposed.

In 1986 you retired at the age of 40 to become a named Lloyd’s investor? At the same time as your retirement the blackmailing stopped when you had Prescott assassinated.

After Prescotts demise, Burkett another paedophile in his 50’s started to blackmail you but like Prescott, you had Burkett assassinated.

Denham your retirement years were fruitful going to different countries to tell people about God, teaching the bible and sharing your so called; “Christian” faith. That is until you were arrested on 2nd August 2001 and charged with raping two boys from Green Field House. However, the charges were later dropped due to insufficient evidence.

In 2006 Maidenhead council started to settle compensation claims to your rape victims. In turn Maidenhead council sued you and you settled out of court paying them over one million pounds.

In 2008 on 1st July you were again arrested and charged with 17 counts of raping 8 boys as young as 9. Your six week trial started on the Monday 17th May 2010. On Wednesday 19th of May Walters told the court that “I had little to do with the posh man” This was clearly a lie as you gave Walters your bubble car when you aquired your green MG reg KMO 124B on your 21st birthday.





Walters an ex Green Field House resident abused boys with you and later helped Burkett in his blackmail plot against you. After you murdered Burkett you paid off Walters who had recently came out of Wandsworth prison penniless. Walters then purchased three properties and started a scaffolding business.

Walters was only one man left alive who knew the true story of your involvement and subsequent blackmail plots. On Wednesday 19th May Walters lied to the court saying that he had very little to do with you. Walters finished giving evidence Thursday lunchtime and was murdered on your instructions the following morning.

Denham Gilbrt-Smith on Wednesday 16th June you bribed three members of the jury and on the Wednesday 23rdJune by a majority the jury returned not guilty verdicts. Had Walters lived to hear the not guilty verdicts he would have been forced to tell the truth concerning your criminal & peadophile activities by myself and others! This was the reason you murdered Walters in the same way as you murdered the other two blackmailers.

As soon as the trial was over terrified that your past would come back to haunt you, you left your children and grandchildren to become a resident of Northern Cyprus a Muslim country that has no extradition treaty with the UK.

You can run but you can’t hide! Denham Gilbart-Smith, is this your life?

Four charges dropped at 2010 trial

Please follow and like us:






After John Price Q.C. for the prosecution had presented his case for 17 charges of rape and sexual abuse against Gilbart-Smith, Mr Price allowed four of the charges to be dropped.


CHARGE ONE: Was indecent assault, as the witness had said that he couldn’t be sure whether this was Gilbart-Smith or Burkett, and if the witness couldn’t be sure then how could the jury be sure, Mr Price pointed out.


CHARGE TWO: The witness, when giving evidence, had told the court about Gilbart-Smith raping him in the TV room. However, the specimen charge that Gilbart-Smith was standing before the court for was related to raping this man in the sick bay room. When cross examined the man never gave evidence of the sick bay rape just the TV room rape, so the charge was dropped.


CHARGE THREE: An attempted buggery was dropped as under cross examination, the witness did not describe attempted buggery.


CHARGE FOUR: A fourth charge of indecent assault was conceded, as whilst the witness gave evidence of being tied up and sexually abused, whilst giving his evidence he did not specifically say that it was Gilbart-Smith. For this reason the charge was conceded.


The defence asked that more charges be dropped.

Jo Cutts Q.C. told the court that the charge of conspiracy to bugger, should be dropped. It was stated by the witness that after being taken by Gilbart-Smith to a bonfire party at the Tudor House on Wandsworth Common, after being drugged, Gilbart-Smith had taken the boy up to the bedroom to lie down. The witness then said that Gilbart-Smith left him in the bedroom with a number of men and closed the door as he left.

The witness awoke the next day with blood coming from his back passage. The defence argued that if buggery had taken place, there was no evidence to suggest that Gilbart-Smith had entered into a conspiracy with whomever had buggered the witness as, according to the evidence of the witness, the defendant had left the room and closed the door.

The prosecution argued that the witness was taken to Wandsworth by a man in a convertible sports car. There was only one sports car used by the paedophiles and this had been proven to be Gilbart-Smith’s green MG. The fact that Gilbart-Smith had driven the witness to Wandsworth was sufficient to prove the conspiracy charge.

The defence further argued for a case of rape to be dropped as the witness, in his cross examination, was not specific as to the location being in Prescott’s private quarters. The witness gave evidence of being raped generally by Gilbart-Smith in various locations but didn’t give specific evidence concerning the specific rape that the specimen charge related to in Prescott’s private quarters.


As the court adjourned, Gilbart-Smith stepped out of the dock and started laughing with Jo Cutts QC. The lead detective, DI Brian McDaide, seeing this said, “He makes me feel sick!”

A typical day at Green Field House

Please follow and like us:


Obviously looking at the big picture of what happened at GFH it was horrific in the extreme! Having said that children are such resilient beings they have the ability to bounce! But of course the long term psychological and mental health issues are where the real damage of child abuse is seen. I am told that around 80% of men in prison have been victims of abuse as children.

6.00 am: A boy would be woken to make Donald Prescott the warden a pot of tea. The boy would take the tea to Prescott’s bedroom where he would be invited to get in bed with Prescott to be abused, while Mrs Prescott pretended to be asleep in a bed the other side of the very large room. My day for making the tea was Sunday. It is only after the 2010 trial that I realised this was the daily routine with different boys making the tea on different days.

7.00 am: All of the boys would get up and have to run downstairs to the wash room. Prescott would stand outside the wash room, and make the odd boy touch him, if you were unlucky Prescott would take you into his office next to the washroom.

7.30 am: Breakfast which consisted of cereals. There were twelve boys at GFH six would sit on one side of the table and six the other side whilst Prescott and his wife sat at either end. Prescott would say; “Say grace” and the boys with their hands together would bow their heads and say; “May the Lord make us truly thankful for what we are about to receive.”

8.30 am: If Prescott had no official appointments inevitably one boy would be held back and Prescott would take the rest of us to school in his land rover.

9.30 am: Prescott would return to GFH and at some stage of the day the separated boy would be given some sort of treat to make him feel special, and would be abused by Prescott.

4.00 pm: All boys arrive back to GFH from school.

5.00 pm: Tea a disgusting plate of lumpy mashed potato with a slice of corned beef or spam in a warm lumpy gravy with stale bread. Looking back it is clear that Prescott kept most of the council’s food budget for himself.

6.00 pm: One or two evenings a week Gilbart-Smith, Ted Burkett, Clive Bristow, Michael Moore or other men might arrive and play tennis or snooker with the boys. At some stage a boy or boys would disappear as would the men.

8.00 pm: Prescott might ask a boy to run him a foam bath and abuse would take place.

9.00 pm: The younger boys would go to bed, where Prescott would visit them and groom them.

10.00 pm: The older boys would go to bed. One or two of the older boys would stay down and be raped by the men or by an older boy whilst Prescott Gilbart-Smith and the others watched.

At weekends numerous men including Clemence Prescott, Ted Burkett, Gilbart-Smith, Michael Moore who was introduced to the home by Gilbart-Smith would converge on the home.

The child abuse took place every day 7 days a wek!

Gilbart-Smith called all of his family as character witnesses, thus preventing them from hearing the case of both the prosecution evidence and his defence nonsense in the 2010 trial.

Gilbart-Smith’s family and church friends would have known, for example that his first car was a ‘bubble car’.  Gilbart-Smith gave the bubble car to Willy Walters who later became one of Gilbart-Smiths blackmailers, Walters told Reading Crown Court that “he had little to do with the posh man. “

Did Gilbart-Smith tell his wife family or church friends that his first car was a bubble car?

Gilbart-Smith claimed in court that he became a Christian at the 1967 Billy Graham crusade, but he was raping Green Field House kids until 1970.
Did Gilbart-Smith give a different account to his family and churchy friends concerning his so called; “Christian conversion”?

In 2007 Gilbart-Smith paid Maidenhead Council a huge sum of money to hide his paedophile activities.
Were the Gilbart-Smith family aware that the Gilbart-Smith paid over a million pounds to Maidenhead Council?

In Gilbart-Smiths 1967 diary it said that he was meeting Gwen in Reading. Gwen was the name of one of the female paedophiles. Gilbart-Smith told the court that this was his aunt Gwen.
Did Gilbart-Smith have an aunt Gwen?
If yes would she have met him at Reading?

One of the boys from the children’s home told the court that in 1967 he was raped and abused by Gilbart-Smith when  Gilbart-Smith took him out in a Consul. Gilbart-Smith told the court that he never owned or had access to a Consul car, even though “Consul car” was written in his 1967 diary.
Do either of the Gilbart-Smith brothers remember a Consul car? Did their father own a Consul car?

Gilbart-Smith told the court that he had never been to Bracklesham Bay where one of the rapes took place. Bracklesham Bay was just a few miles from Elmer Sands where Gilbart-Smiths grandfather had a holiday home.
Who owned the Bracklesham Bay holiday home?
Did the Gilbart-Smith family go to Bracklesham Bay?
Do the Gilbart-Smith brothers remember a connection in Bracklesham Bay?

I was amazed when I read this. Its the astonishing true story of how abuse affected a man’s life, how he came through it but years later came to confront one of his abusers. I was surprised how much research it contains to support allegations of corruption in the legal system plus blackmail and even murder. A fascinating book.



A harrowing story of one man’s fight to overcome the demons of being abused as a child that affected his whole life. The story takes you through his life from a young age to the trial and the things that happened to him. The trial itself is a story on its own and you see how the lawyers turn everything on its head to make the victims look like the criminals and the filthy scumbag paedophile look like the innocent victim. This is a MUST READ!



As soon as I became aware of the author’s plight I knew I had a moral responsibility to read this book. If the information contained in it is true (and watching the historic abuse cases now being made public certainly adds to its credibility) then we are all morally obliged to take action to ensure the guilty face justice. If we do nothing we will be risking the safety of our own children, our grandchildren and all the generations that follow. Please take the time to read this and listen to your conscience



A true story which clearly sets outs the lifelong effects of child abuse and the deviance and corruption of named paedophiles. The author has self published the book in his campaign for justice and to raise public awarness of how a prolific paedophile used his wealth to corrupt the justice system. In spite of 17 charges of child rape and overwhelming evidence the paedophile has never to this day paid for his abhorrant crimes.
Excellent book, well written and factual.


I became a Christian in my teens, and joined River church in Maidenhead.  At that time Denham Gilbart-Smith was the leader of the church.  I always felt that there were lots of things which weren’t quite ‘right’.  Firstly he was very wealthy and lots of the members of the church would try and ‘keep up’ with his lifestyle. It always felt very odd….there was this guy Karl Davey who was a very lovely person but suffered from lack of confidence.   He always tried to keep up with Denham, down to the point where he embezzled his company (he was an accountant) – he ended up going to jail for a while for this (he sadly died quite recently).  I always remember Karl having the same green leather jacket as Denham, he wanted to be like him, such was the power he had over the people at the church.

Anyway I suppose I was in awe of him as a teenager, he seem to have this personality that you would kind of do anything he said.  He was incredibly manipulative and I think there were quite a few people that were scared of him in some way or wouldn’t go against him.  When I started going out with a girl, I remember him asking whether we had ‘had sex’.  It was incredibly embarrassing and humiliating.  It of course was none of his business but looking back I was young and easily manipulated and felt like I had to answer him. He had that power over people.  You felt that you had to tell him everything that you did however personal.  Looking back this was a horrible situation to put any teenager through when you are going through so many changes and challenges.

I suppose the main thing that I don’t know whether you know that Denham had an affair with a member of the church which went on for a number of years (like years and years I think).  Her name was Julie B.  She was a single lady member of the church at the time. The thing is this.  Denham wanted to hide the fact that he had an affair and basically manipulated the leadership team so that they wouldn’t say anything to the congregation.  However, Julie B then came to the leadership team and told them everything that had happened.  There was a meeting with the whole church and I think then only Denham confessed (although he said it was not ‘full intercourse’ just ‘oral sex’ he tried to make it sound less than what it was basically) and although I wasn’t there it was recorded so everyone got to hear it.  Everyone was really shocked and upset. As a young person, it was horrible to hear that the man you looked up to had been doing this.  Anyway he was asked to step down from the Leadership team which he did for a while.  However, he wanted to come back to the leadership team and they wouldn’t let him.  I think he threw up quite a stink and lost a lot of friends.  I think he may of even tried to set up his own church or something.    He didn’t like to not be in control or in a position of power.

I think it all got hushed up afterwards as well – you know got to ‘forgive’ etc.  I didn’t see anything in the papers about it.  I do remember Julie B being asked to leave the church whilst Denham remained.  Funny that eh? The wanton woman cast out of the fold but Denham sitting pretty.  I always felt very saddened by the whole thing.  It made me question my faith to a huge degree.

I hope you get justice,



After reading your book I am disgusted as to the outcome of proceedings. Regardless if Gilbart-Smith was the sole instigator in the paedophile ring or not, undoubted involvement in the first place should not be disguished by the excuse of peer pressure or any other excuse when the witness evidence is so clear.

The Jury’s outcome on the matter is absolutely ridiculous. Stating that “It all happened such a long time ago!”.. this statement is incredibly naiive as it is like saying that those involved in the torturing of people in the concentration camps should be forgotten and forgiven simply as they are old and “it all happened such a long time ago”. I think not.

This is a prime example as to where the justice system is so corrupted. The justice system were quick to jump on yourself for petty crimes (in the grand scheme of things) such as driving under the influence, however if such immediate action was taken against these crimes, a PAEDOPHILE abusing YOUNG and INNOCENT children, such as yourself, should without hesitation be shown the full, immediate punishment he deserves.

I severly hope justice will prevail in this case and Gibart-Smith gets the full punishment he truely deserves, life imprisonment – however this prison sentence I do not believe would be enough – ruining so many people’s innocent lives and causing so much pain he deserves a much crueller punishment!!

I really do wish you all the best and hope justice will be served to him deservingly.

Kindest Regards,



i downloaded your book what i can tell you is i found it well written ,concise and it made me angry that all that shit happened to you.i despair of the cruelty that happens to children .i don’t know how we stop it .i guess the first thing is to make everyone in society aware of the sick thugs that we deem ok to look after children.
if i had my way i would not let men have anything to do with the care system. a bit extreme but to be honest the more i find out it seems to me they cannot be trusted not to abuse the vulnerable,be it small children,the elderly or special needs people.

i cant believe that as a so called caring society,the cover ups and abuse is happening right now whilst we as a nation are worried whether there’s horse meat in shit food or what time coronation street is on. i apologize on behalf of the section of society who don’t want to look the other way,and do care about what happens to children when they go into the care system. care system,even the name is a joke.

from the bottom of my heart i am sorry that you had to write such a book,i really am.
good luck in the future and i hope you nail the bastards.
i also wish you happiness,in what ever form it takes,and that you grab it with both hands.
love gill
