Ghost tour celebrates Crewe Station's creepy past

CREWE’S creepy railway history will be brought back to to life during a series of ghost walks next month.

As part of celebrations to mark its 175th anniversary, the ‘Strange at Crewe’ tours will explore some of the railway station’s spooky myths and legends.

Since 2007, Tim Prevett, the tour’s creator and operator, has been relaying chilling tales to intrigued participants on his walks around Crewe and Nantwich.

Now, a special series of his rail-focused events will roam little known parts of the platform, shedding light on some of the long standing myths and legends about the history-steeped station.

The walk will access usually off-limit areas to investigate rumours of whether Queen Victoria had her own secret tunnel beneath the station, and the curious tale of the ghostly footprints in the ticket office.

“Crewe’s history is indeed relatively modern, but nevertheless compelling. I’m really pleased Virgin Trains are enabling this different celebration of the station’s story on its 175th birthday,” said Mr Prevett.

There will be afternoon and evening tours on July 4. Subsequent tours will be held on July 14 and 21.

£7 adults, £5 concessions. All tours require booking due to limited places. Phone 07905 597 242 or see www.historyandmystery.co.uk

The underground tunnels were for transporting beer not royalty. When did queen Victoria stop at Crewe station?
