Haunted tunnel date

Date published: 22 October 2008

ONE of Britain’s top ghosthunters is paying a visit to Stanedge Tunnel.

David Vee and his paranormal team will host a narrowboat tour through the highest, longest, deepest and eeriest canal tunnel in the country on a bone-tingling quest for ghosts, ghouls and things that go bump in the night.

Those who can hold their nerve will explore inside the haunted tunnel before venturing up to the visitor centre where a vigil to connect with the paranormal world will be held on Friday, October 31.

David said: “The event is a great opportunity for anyone who is curious about ghosts to get an understanding of what we do on an investigation.

“Stanedge is a great prospect for us as it has real history and an air of mystery.

“I picked up on some activity around the site when I last visited, particularly in the tunnel, so I can’t wait to lead people on this journey and see what we can discover.”

The fun starts at 9pm and goes on until 2am. The event is for over-16s only and warm clothing and footwear is required. Tickets are £40 and can be obtained by calling 01484- 844 298

For younger spook-seekers, Stanedge will be hosting a series of Hallowe’en-themed boat trips in to the tunnel from October 29-31.
