"Went on the Rochdale ghost walk last night. Found the tour leader Colin Meredith really interesting. Starts outside The Baum pub twice monthly at 7.30pm to 9 pm at a cost of £5. Lots of factual stories about murders in Rochdale, and associated ghosts. I've lived in Rochdale all my life but discovered some history of which I was not aware. A really good way to spend an evening"

"Anyone wanting to have an unusual evening out MUST experience Rochdale's Ghost Walk.
An exellent local history tour of the town centre, plus well documented true murder incidents.
Born and bred in Rochdale I have always taken a keen interest in my town old and new,
but learned some amazing stories and facts.
Colin Meredith has created a truly superb night out, fantastic value, starting and ending
at the best pub in town, to complete a thoroughly enjoyable and unique evening."

"Colin gave our group a wonderful tour of Rochdale - enlightening many of us on some of the town's history.
Even those who've lived there their whole lives. The tales of ghosts and murders were suitably gruesome.
It is amazing how many things and places that you miss as you walk around your local town. He creates the scene so well you feel as if you're going back in time. I would suggest wearing flat shoes as there's quite a few steps and cobbled streets/alleys on the walk.
He also accommodated our request to set off from a different point which was much appreciated.
We finished off with a delicious meal at La Mancha. I would recommend this walk to anyone interested in learning about where they live and the people who lived and died there before you."

"On a night when clouds were blowing quickly across the almost full moon and a chilly wind was blowing
around the deserted streets of Rochdale, my Rotary Club was taken on the Ghost Walk by Colin.
It was terrible to find out about all the horrific murders that had happened in the town and all the screaming that goes on as a result! It was a fun evening and highly recommended."
