Yorkshire , England United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 29, 2011 -- Drakelow Tunnels where men are said to have been crushed to death during construction, this eerie event will include a workshop to teach those who dare how to increase the sensitivity and skills required to carry out a successful ghost hunt. There will be a mediumship walk-around and ghost-hunting vigils, with refreshments throughout the night.
It is said that by the mid 1930's the possibility of another world war was becoming evident, forcing the British Government to embark on a major construction plan of building several shadow factories. By 1941 construction at Drakelow was underway. The plan was for a massive four and a half miles of interconnecting tunnels, the work was hazardous and there are stories of several fatal accidents.
One eye witness claims three men were crushed in a roof fall in tunnel one. Other fatal accidents occurred when one of the workers was struck by a dumper truck and on another occasion two men were killed when riding the conveyors. Local rumour suggests that the initials of those who died in the construction process were carved into the sandstone where they died. "Members of Drakelow Preservation Trust have experienced some disturbing incidents from being grabbed in the dark to manifestations actually being caught on camera."
Following the development of nuclear weapons at the end of World War II, the British Government formed elaborate plans for Drakelow Tunnels to be used as one of Britain's nuclear bunkers in the event of nuclear attack. Not only is Drakelow a known haunted location but it also offers a fascinating overnight experience in one of the UK's largest nuclear bunkers.
Unfortunately these tunnels have no electricity and are only lit with candles it is also cold and very dark so please bring a torch and warm clothing with sensible shoes. This location is not for the faint hearted. These tunnels have been described by many mediums to be the most scary place in the U.K. Dare you join us and see if this claim is true?
