Description

Presented by Flecky Bennett and Stockport Museums.

One of the most fascinating locations in Stockport is right under your very feet.

Found far below Stockport old town there lies a dark corner of history. Dating back to the Second World War and abandoned for nearly 50 years, never illuminated by the light of day.

In 1996 the shelters were reopened as a tourist attraction.

Now Flecky Bennett will take you deeper and further than before. Follow him through over a mile of abandoned pitch black tunnels and hear stories about Hitler’s Christmas Blitz, see the sleeping quarters and toilets. Visit old pub basements, wells and secret chambers.

We then enter the haunted area directly under a graveyard.

Part history, part theatre, part ghost walk.
