    Ok, I sent a email about two weeks ago to Shiverpool to make a booking but didn't get a reply. I sent another one Monday night and again no reply.
    I'm going to phone them tomorrow to see if there is any places left on Saturday.

    Hopefully we should be still on for the ghost walk but if not would you guys want to do anything else instead, because I don't mind still meeting up. Maybe just grab something to eat and drink or maybe check a film out?

    Aye, can do :) Not too bothered about a movie - a nice dinner and chat would suit me.

    Bad news guys, no luck with Shiverpool :( They said that they never got my emails and when I rang them up, they told me they're booked up.
    I feel really bad for letting you guys down, I really should have rang them up sooner.

    Hopefully we can still make something of this meet (I might even get a book and do they tour myself :p )
    Guess we've got time to work out other things out.

    I'm going to go into L'pool tomorrow to see if I can pick up a book that might help.

    Check for this one Chris - http://www.tomslemen.tk/

    Liverpool Ghost Walk
    In 2003 Tom Slemen hosted a ghost walk attended by over 500 people. It broke the record for the most attended tour of Liverpool and was also the first public ghost tour of the city. The Liverpool Ghost walk is a guide to the haunted hot spots of the city, and takes in Bold Street, Leece Street, Rodney Street, St James's Cemetery, Clarence Street, Brownlow Hill and Ranelagh Street. Whether you want to use the guidebook to embark on your own ghost tour of Liverpool, or whether you simply want to enjoy the tour from the safety and comfort of your armchair, the Liverpool Ghost Walk is a must.

    That's the one I was going to check for :p

    I even read that Cavern story early, was going to print it out and use it as part of The Cozmic Ghost Walk

    Ooh cool :D

    Col says, instead of having the umbrella that everyone follows, Cozmic should have a lightsabre to lead the way ;)

    There's still going to be 4 of us, I think :p

    We will probably set off from Mankyland around 1.30ish. Not sure how long it will take to drive to Liverpool, but about a hour sound right? We can then go round the shops for a bit. Where would be the best place to park, etc?

    We haven't a clue where we are meeting you - just figure we'll get there and then I'll ring Tim with a description of where we've found.

    Eddie Rockets looks fun - just hope they don't play that website tune in their cafe :p

    I think it could have been a bit more spooky, but I'm not a tour guide :p

    I'm still full from Eddie's too.

    Discussed with Coz this morning what we could do next year - similar, a walk done by ourselves, read by ourselves, but maybe have people research one or a few stories and then we do the walk and stop by the points people have researched? And have it with costumers?

    Some pictures ... and we may well have a ghost :eek:

    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKN_Oct06_Liv_Halloweve/FFUKN_Oct28_Halloween_fr.jpg]

    We started the day with a trip round Liverpool shopping area and up towards the Cavern (now a favourite FF-UK:N by NW drop in point).

    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKN_Oct06_Liv_Halloweve/FFUKN_Oct28_Halloween_01.jpg]

    We then met this bloke propping up the houses ...

    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKN_Oct06_Liv_Halloweve/FFUKN_Oct28_Halloween_02.jpg]

    After that it was onto FP (where I got a little discount [face_blush] ) and then onto the tour. This is in the graveyard of Liverpool Anglican Cathedral (great place to visit!!!)

    We then went onto the Catholic Cathedral and the headless man who helped one person and scared a few others. Nice ghost.

    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKN_Oct06_Liv_Halloweve/FFUKN_Oct28_Halloween_07.jpg]

    After the walk, we stopped by Eddie Rocket's - nice food, huge portions :D

    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKN_Oct06_Liv_Halloweve/FFUKN_Oct28_Halloween_09.jpg]

    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKN_Oct06_Liv_Halloweve/FFUKN_Oct28_Halloween_10.jpg]

    So a great night :D And think we'll definitely look towards doing something similar next year.

    Wait you say?

    What about the ghost?

    *cough*

    Was trying to get away from that one :p

    Now, it's a weird thing, and I can't explain it - it's not an altered pic (the others there asked me, since we were jokingly going to alter a pic to tease you. This pic was unaltered. I promise. Now I was using "night scene" on my camera, and the results were mainly grainy pics - not great tbh. The lights present were blurred a little, but there is nothing odd on them. And I can't rule out a weird reflection from somewhere, but you'll have to judge for yourself. This is our ghost, who we need to name since they were so kind to give us a wave - a ball ghost (will'o'the'wisp?).

    Without further ado (it's an unaltered pic remember)

    [image=http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m309/timbolton/FFUKN_Oct06_Liv_Halloweve/FFUKN_Oct28_Halloween_06.jpg]

    The truth is out there ... decide for yourselves [face_worried] [face_plain]

    I have a bigger version of the pic btw, if you want to scrutinise in PhotoShop, I keep checking ...
