The UK Ghost Nights Team loves an underground location and the Haunted Williamson Tunnels in Liverpool has an established haunted history…
History of the Haunted Williamson Tunnels
Between 1810-1840 eccentric business owner, Joseph Williamson, set about constructing archway style tunnels under the Edge Hill area of Liverpool to level out the land above, earmarked for gardens to properties he wished to be constructed. It appears that once he had achieved these tunnel constructions, he continued to supply local men, women and children with paid employment by working the tunnels, even though it became very unclear as to any other purpose at that time. Following Williamson’s death in 1840, the construction of the tunnels ceased and by 1867, the local rag is reported to identify the tunnels as being little more than a nuisance due to the tunnels being used as a dumping ground. Today the sections of tunnels that have been excavated are maintained by the museum and visitors can enjoy a tour of what is a very obscure part of Liverpool’s history!
The Haunted Williamson Tunnels
It’s been reported that Joseph Williamson, the wealthy land owner who commissioned the tunnels still roams in the darkness. Guests have reported a scent of aftershave with others reporting dark shadows. Physical manifestations have been known to occur in the top tunnel with audible phenomena rife throughout. Many guests have reported feeling an uneasy feeling of being watched as they have explored this eerie, but fascinating place.
It is believed that many people suffered whilst excavating the tunnels, including many children as young as twelve years old…
