Drakelow Tunnels - West Midlands Ghost Hunts
The Drakelow Tunnels, located in Wolvey just outside Kidderminster, stretch for 3.5 miles and are filled with nothing but darkness and terror. This maze-like structure is pitch black and has been known to house many ghosts and spirits. Visitors on ghost hunts have reported terrifying paranormal activity, and many accidents have occurred here in the past. If you're brave enough to embark on a paranormal journey, get ready to be scared. There is no light except for a torchlight to guide you.
Over the years, hundreds of visitors and workers have reported experiencing paranormal activity in the Drakelow Tunnels. On previous ghost nights, dark shadows have been seen lurking around corners and doorways. Strange white mists have appeared, and people have been grabbed in the old kitchen area. Torchlight has been seen coming down the tunnels with nobody present. Stones and bricks have been thrown, making this a place of haunted activity. We invite you to enter the darkness of Drakelow Tunnels for a ghost-hunting experience.e. Are you ready?
History Of Drakelow Tunnels
During the 1950s and the growing Cold War, the Ministry of Supply initially used the site for storage.
The Home Office developed around 1958 part of the site as a Regional Seat of Government (RSG9). It was publicly exposed in a demonstration held there by the West Midlands Committee of 100 in 1963. Under later Home Defence schemes, the bunker was designated a Sub-Regional Control (SRC), Sub-Regional Headquarters (SRHQ), and finally Regional Government Headquarters (RGHQ).
The site was extensively modernised in the early 1980s; only a tiny portion was designated for use. New blast doors were fitted in place of the previous wooden factory doors, and the interior of the site was refurbished in the areas forward of tunnel 4.
In about 1990, there was a plan to move the RGHQ to a much smaller bunker, formerly used by UKWMO, at Lawford Heath near Rugby. This never happened, and the Drakelow site was decommissioned and sold around 1993.
They were constructed as part of the Ministry of Aircrafts Shadow Factory Scheme for use by Rover in WWII and were primarily used as storage and workshops. After the War, the Government took the building and prepared it as a Nuclear Bunker for use during the Cold War. New rooms and equipment were designed to house local & National Government officials, plus armed forces and medical teams. Thankfully the war ended, and the bunker was sold off in the early 1990s.
