HOME CALENDAR Spooky Manchester Walk Spooky ...
There's nothing like a peaceful walk in the country. Whether it's the Peak District or the Lakes, there are some fantastic routes and it's a great way to enjoy the kind of in-depth conversation with someone you'd never have a Friday or Saturday night environment.

Enter, if you dare, a nether world of murder, assassination, hanging, homicide, regicide, talking corpses and some really nasty stuff. Tragic deaths and accidental deaths. Hoax deaths and bloody deaths. Death by hanging, death by shooting and sudden death. Those who didn’t die and those who should have died.

There are lot of unexplained deaths on this tour, as well as the odd decapitation, hanging and being buried alive. Tragic deaths and accidental deaths. Hoax deaths and bloody deaths.

Instant death. Slow, tortuous death. Death by hanging, death by shooting and sudden death. Those who didn’t die and those who should have died.

It’s a grave night out!

These are gruesome, ghastly and ghostly stories, especially when they involve those who weren’t supposed to be dead. Take the case of Manchester man John Beswick. He woke up some time in 1750 to find himself in a confined space, and then realised it was his own coffin. He banged on the roof and was rather relieved to find a crowd of people on the other side ready to release him. They were the mourners at his funeral. He wasn’t dead, just very tired.

His sister, Hannah, was so mortified of being similarly buried alive she asked a local doctor, Charles White, to check her corpse regularly once she had expired. In return she made a hefty donation to Dr White’s new infirmary, what is now the MRI in Chorlton-on-Medlock. Once looked as if Hannah had expired the doctor made sure by pickling her in vinegar and stuffing the body into a grandfather clock in her own house in east Manchester where the servants could check on her every day. Hannah Beswick remains dead.

This is just one of many deathly stories we’ve dug up and revived for this chilling tour with the equally frightening Ed Glinert.

It’s a grave night out!
