Fright Night Special

Halloween 2018 saw Forces Radio BFBS launch its second Fright Night.

This year Mike Howarth and Adam Richardson took us on a tour of Drakelow Tunnels, Kidderminster – said to be one of the most haunted places on earth. Built between 1941 and 1942 as a Shadow Factory for the Rover car company, parts for aircraft engines were machined in the 3.5 miles of tunnels during WWII. After the war the tunnels began producing parts for tank engines until 1958. The tunnels were then taken over by the British Government who planned to operate the country from them in the event of Nuclear War. They were decommissioned in 1993 and later sold.

Today they are said to be home to enormous paranormal activity. The BFBS team spent an evening there with host Jill Bacon and her team from Haunted Happenings. Mike and Adam experienced and share a few incidents which they still haven’t been able to explain. They also bring you other spooky stories from other parts of the forces world.
