Shoe Factory Ghost – 1970s

birmingham shoe factory ghost

Another trip down memory lane and this time to 1970s Birmingham and to the demolished factory of Thomas Haddon and Stokes. One witness I interviewed said, “There was a chap who worked in the stores area in the basement. One day he was walking to the lift when he saw an oddly dressed man step into the lift, the chap shouted “I will come up with you” but when he reached the lift no one was there.”

The following is an ATV/Central News report when a reporter visited the factory of Thomas Haddon and Stokes, Birmingham (since demolished) to discuss the ghostly sightings of a man believed to be Protestant martyr John Rogers, who was burned at the stake on this site February 4 1555. Was he really the shoe factory ghost?”
