Haunted Tunnel Network Under Smethick Baths

Opened on the 30th March 1933 and designed by Chester Button and Roland Fletcher, The baths had had many a function. During WWII, the vast network of underground tunnels and cellars which lie beneath the complex were used as an air raid shelter; posters and drawings from that time can still be seen to this day. In later years the buildings where transformed in to an entertainment venue playing host to the top celebrities of the 1960 and 70’s.

Since the early years there have been many reports of ghostly apparitions and poltergeist activity, eerie sounds and shadows moving in the dim light of the tunnels, are you brave enough to discover more? For booking information or more details click here

In late January of 2012, I woke up in the middle of the night and had to go to the toilet. To get there, I had to go down a flight of stairs. As I reached the top of the stairs I looked down and saw two young girls in naval uniform playing with each other – they looked as if they were playing not inside a house, but in some recreational park or somewhere where there is plenty of space. They seemed oblivious to their domestic surroundings!

I couldn’t hear them but I could see their grey / silvery outlines clearly. The colour of their uniforms was almost completely bleached out until it was close to sepia, what little colour there was looked very faint to me, but I could distinguish the darker shades of navy blue and deep red stripes on their clothes.

Although their outlines were easy to define, I could see straight through them.

One of the girls glanced up and noticed me looking down at them from the top of the stairs – at that very moment she broke away from her friend and ran off – disappearing through a side door (into the living room) and vanishing. Her friend followed straight after.

I stood there at the top of the stairs wondering whether I should go down there to the toilet or else pee in my tracksuit pants. I decided that peeing in my pants wasn’t much of an option, so at the risk of confronting these two ghostly girls once more, I finally decided to take myself to the toilet downstairs.

I went down the stairs and turned on every light within reach as I walked through 2 more rooms before finally making it to the toilet. While I felt like I was taking the longest pee in my whole life, I continually looked over my shoulder and out of the corner of my eye for ghostly-looking girls playing about in the house.

There was no more sign of them…phew!

I finally went back up the stairs and got back into bed. My partner had woken up by now and before I could tell her about my experience, she told me that she’d just been dreaming about herself as a little girl, involved in some performance. She said she was dressed up in some national costume.

I asked her if it was a navy uniform and whether she had a friend in those days. She said no to both questions. I then told her, with as much detail as I could recall, what I’d just seen at the top of the stairs.

This was an experience that I’d never had before and I immediately began to wonder what it was that I’d experienced: had my partner shared her dream with me while we were asleep and that I was visualizing something residual at the top of the stairs after I woke up to go to the toilet? Or was the apparition of these girls something completely separate?

The description of the way the girls were dressed in the apparition seemed very similar to what my partner described herself as wearing in her dream.

Ghost or something else? Meopham. Kent

A man driving through Blue Bell Hill in 1992 saw a young girl appear and start running towards his vehicle.

Let me start by saying I am not sure if this is a ghost or something else. When I was about 8 I was visiting my aunts house with my family I had been there lots of times before and never had anything even remotely strange happen.

It was about 9 pm in summer and was just starting to get dark, I was playing in their hall way by myself and heard a scratching sound I looked around but saw nothing and kept on playing after about another ten minutes I heard a very low growl I looked up and saw eyes and teeth about 7 feet above me the next thing I remember was my mum telling me so stop screaming. Every body in the house was now in the hall way and wondering what I was screaming about.

After I had calmed down I was told nothing was there and not to worry the usual stuff you get told at that age. I have been back to my aunts place lots of times since and never seen anything but I always get the feeling of being watched when im sitting in there front room or walking in the hallway

Ghost or an Imaginary friend. Newcastle

I was about 8 years old and me and my sisters were at my Dads for the weekend, ever since he moved in this new house with his girlfriend. My Dad says I started action really strange, well anyway one summer day my dad was having a BBQ and he told my sister to come upstairs and get me, she said, when she came up I was sitting on the bed facing the other bed talking to my self.

I can remember all of this happening because I wasn’t talking to my self I was talking to a little boy was about 7, my sister came down and told my dad I was scaring her so he came up to get me.. He kept asking me who I was speaking to and I said my friend, I couldn’t understand why no one but me could see this little boy, the little boy told me he didn’t know his name and didn’t know why he was in my dads house, after that the little boy followed me everywhere he even came back to my Nans with me.

The doctors just called it as having a imaginary friend but I know he was not imaginary he was a Ghost, when I got older I was about 13 my dad still lived in that house and the lady next door told me that a little boy buy the name Tommy died by get beat up buy his parents to much it was horrifying. That’s my story and that’s how I met my best-friend when I was young, sound ridiculous but this is a true story.

The Devils Bible – Codex Gigas

The Devils Bible – Codex Gigas is a mysterious book that in its day was believed to contain all human knowledge and ancient arcane spells.

According to legend in the Middle Ages, a monk who broke his monastic vows and was sentenced to be walled up alive as punishment. In an desperate appeal for clemency he promised to create in one single night a book to glorify the monastery forever. However, as midnight approached the enormity of the task became to much and sure that he could not complete this task alone, he made a special pact, not with God but to the fallen angel Lucifer, asking him to help him finish the book in exchange for his soul.

The devil completed the manuscript and the monk added the devil’s picture out of gratitude for his aid.

The Devils Bible Documentary

The documentary explores the The “Devil’s Bible, from its creation and tries to answer the questions relating to this mysterious and aged codex.
The codex is bound in a wooden folder covered with leather and ornate metal cornering. At 92 cm (36.2in.) tall, 50 cm (19.7in.) wide and 22 cm (8.6in.) thick it is the largest known medieval manuscript.

Weighing 74.8 kg (165 pounds),  the same weight as an average human, the Codex Gigas is composed of 310 leaves of vellum allegedly made from the skins of 160 donkeys .

The Codex Gigas is the world’s largest medieval manuscript.  It initially contained 320 sheets, though some of these were subsequently removed.  It is unknown who removed the pages or for what purpose but it seems likely that they contained the monastic rules of the Benedictine’s.
