Redcliffe Caves - Beyond The Grave - Bristol

Miners, slaves and the spirit of a murdered prostitute are just a few of the spirits that still roam this labyrinth of caves beneath Bristol's city streets.

The caves are actually man made tunnels dug out from soft red sandstone and were originally mine workings from the 15th to 18th century, with which

the fine sand were used to make glass. Redcliffe Caves extends into unknown proportions under Bristol; it is reputed that up to 12 acres of tunnels may actually lay buried beneath its streets. There are a labyrinth of corridors and small spaces and low ceilings. There are many things that the caves were said to be used for besides the mining including where smugglers used to hide their goods, a place where prostitutes frequented, prisoners being held. French Sailors were kept in the caves as prisoners of war for a short time during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars. More recently during the Second World War, a small section of the 'caves' were also used as a bespoke air raid shelter to help protect the citizens of Bristol. Blackbeard is also thought to have had a hideaway cave under St Mary Redcliffe.



Reported Paranormal Activity

The caves are known as an eerie place where there are said to be lots of things that go bump. With so many nooks and crannies to go and explore it is easy to feel lost and disoriented. Various sailors and miners are said to haunt the caves (so the stories are at least vaguely historically accurate) and bewitch all those who enter caves.Some of the ghosts that are said to wander here are a murdered prostitute, a prisioner and an evil presence. With its links to Piracy and Smugglers you have a location which has seen a varied and potentially explosive amount of emotions over its several hundred-year history. Should there be even the remotest possibility of the existence of the Paranormal, we can't think of a better place in which to search for the evidence.
