The Williamson Tunnels Ghost Hunt

The tunnels were built on the instruction of a wealthy tobacco merchant, Joseph Williamson – the “mole of Edge Hill” – at the beginning of the 19th century.

Today there’s a visitor centre with opening hours, and guides. But the magic of the tunnels remains.

Some are corridors barely a metre wide; one is a “banqueting hall” 6 metres high. No one knows why they were built, and the tunnels have still not been completely excavated or mapped.

Was it a philanthropic employment scheme for men returning from the Napoleonic war? Was it a monument for his dead wife? Did Williamson think the Apocalypse was coming and this was a shelter for the faithful? Was he just plain nuts?

Walking around the tunnels you really do have the feeling that you are walking through someone else’s dreams.

Visitors to the Williamson Tunnels have reported Paranormal activity since the beginning, strange smells,  dark shadows, and even a evil looking man in a long coat who will follow along on Ghost Hunts only to inexplicably vanish into thin air.

The sound of small childrens footsteps can be heard running around.

Many people say the spirit of Joseph Williamson himself is here, prowling through the tunnels he dedicated so many years of his life to building?
