Interesting! We have one in our back yard. A wall I mean. Where's the wood?

Now if you were a ghost - why would you want to be locked away in Borsdane Wood - in a stinking owd tunnel.
These nutters really crack me up.

Borsdane wood is a beautiful place , so why show such a photograph of the woods ugliest aspect ?

Comments by Curly, 16th July 2010  
Good point Pat. You know there has never been a 100% nailed on picture of a ghost in the history of photography which goes back over 100 years.
It always make me laugh why some folks think that you if you were the spirit of a dead person you want to hang about in a dirty old house or tunnel.
Surely, if you were interested in the physical world you would do what you like doing before you popped your cloggs.
So you would be more likely to see a ghost on the beach in Barbados rather than a stinky old tunnel in Boorsdane Wood. And if you were a ghost why bob about as a single blob of light. Why not appear in all your favourite duds.
"Oh look - I regonise that blob of light - its my dead aunt".
I have lived for a considerable time in a so called haunted house and apart from the local yobs outside I never even heard a suspicious noise. The loft lid used to move - I discovered that it was caused by the draft due to the outside door being opened and closed. I slept many times at my aunt's isolated house in Rivington. It had a reputation of being haunted. Never a thing.

I think its a double exposure of the moon and some clouds then another of the brickwork

What a load of silly nonsense. To all readers - please dont take notice of this supernatural nonsense. It doesn't exist and only misleads the weaker of minds.

This is the tunnels. The railway crosses at the top and Borsdane Brook at the bottom. These arches are in the middle. We used to jump them as kids and you Mam were always trying to scare the shit out of you talking about some kid who was killed jumping the tunnels and how horribly he died impaled on some of the rubbish that was dumped in Borsdane Brook. Never did work. We still jumped them.

yes a young boy did die jumping the landings in the tunnel.His name was David Gibson who lived on Chapel Green could this be David trying to tell of the dangers of jumping the landings?.
