An interesting evening with our guide Colin Meredith, taking a stroll into the past history of Rochdale and ghostly going ons. Excellent value for money at £5.00 pp and very informative.

It’s said that when Charles Darwin discovered a new species he ate it, it’s a bloody good job he didn’t discover Rochdale and it’s creatures because he’d have died before he got to the Galápagos Islands!

My trip to Rochdale was an eye opener, it started off with a trip down memory lane with my good colleague Leeroy Barstool. We happened to come across an aladdins cave run by three disheveled chaps, when we entered it resembled a Victorian opium den and there was an incoherent women giving Leroy the eye. Enough was enough we headed for the exit only to have Sid Viscious and Pete Doherty blocked the door with a wardrobe whilst begging for change.

We eventually got out and took in the sites of the 1970’s monotonous concrete architecture, credit where it’s due though the old church is a peach! All in all however Rochdale town centre makes Hiroshima look like a bonfire got slightly out of hand.

Now, as from previous reviews I have touched on ruperts, there wasn’t a distinct lack of ruperts, there was literally NO RUPERTS! we wandered around the shopping arcade, around the streets, we even ventured into the greggs to see if one was hiding before the counter, how does a town centre not have any ruperts! Eventually leeroy and I figured we must be in the set of the new ‘Hills have eyes’ movie, imagine our shock when we googled said movie afterwards to find there isn’t going to be a new movie anytime soon, we were flabbergasted!

Not a great time in Rochdale really, I stopped leeroy from stepping in front of a bus because the town was that depressing, that made me feel happy because I felt like a hero then, but I am Kelvin Boff after all.

Foul Deeds and Suspicious Deaths

I really loved this ghost walk. Colin the tour guide was brilliant. He told us stories about deaths in Rochdale alongside interesting history of the town, and people who lived here. His delivery was fantastic, very factual and detailed with a great element of humour thrown in. We bought a take out coffee from the Baum. The tour was an hour and a half and well worth the £5.00.
I would thoroughly recommend the tour which takes place 2nd and 4th week of the month on a Thursday night.

Murder, Mystery & History

I think this walk is a must if you live in Rochdale. It is the 2nd time I have done it, the first being a couple of years ago. Colin who takes the walk has some very interesting facts about the town, stories of murder which really are interesting but also telling you some of the history of our fascinating town. I was told interesting facts about buildings I walk past all the time but never really looked at in detail. It lasts approx 1hr 15mins and for £5 well worth it.

Went last night and really enjoyed it! Lots of information about the history of Rochdale too and despite living here all my life, he took us to places I didn’t know existed! Well worth the £5 and would definitely recommend to everyone to go!

Rochdale spooky history brought to life
Oct 2018 • Friends
Tonight’s tour was such a treat. We had tea at the Baum after work and started the tour at 7.30pm. A wonderful crisp evening which added to the experience.
Rochdale has bought into the tour and we followed through the streets reading some of the plaques which marked key historical buildings. At night the quiet streets take on a new life and the tour talked about gruesome Murders and tragedies leaving their ghostly spirits to roam free in the town.
The area around the Town Hall is quite exquisite.
