National Waterways Museum

The National Waterways Museum in Ellesmere Port, situated in a historic 200-year-old dock designed by Thomas Telford, offers a compelling blend of rich history and reputed paranormal activity.

Numerous reports suggest ghostly sightings and eerie occurrences at the museum. CCTV footage has captured evidence of “ghostly goings-on” and “paranormal sightings,” indicating that both visitors and staff have experienced unexplained phenomena. Sounds of laughter, crying, and whispering have reportedly been heard from empty rooms within the building, accompanied by phantom footsteps on the upper floors.

Notable incidents include the capture of a strange creamy-coloured figure on film and sightings of a man looking over staircases. According to legend, an “invisible force” once threw a man six feet, and witnesses have documented sightings of three misty silhouettes and a man in a flat cap and donkey jacket.
