The Vaults Ghost Hunt | Edinburgh
Join Haunted Evenings as we take you on a Vaults ghost hunt you’ll never forget!. You will have 6 hours of access all areas to Niddry Street’s Vaults, taking part in a variety of ghost hunt experiments, from using the latest paranormal equipment in our trigger vigil to taking part in more traditional methods such as human pendulums and glass divination. We had some fascinating results when we first visited and can conclude that this location is up there on the most haunted list!
History of Edinburghs’ South Bridge
In 1788 the infamous South Bridge construction, located in the heart Edinburgh, was finally completed. The honour of being the first to walk over this architectural masterpiece was given to the bridges eldest resident who was a well respected judges wife. Unfortunately the lady passed away several days earlier. Town officials felt obliged to honour their original agreement and so it was, that the first body to cross the bridge, was in fact, in a coffin. Many local residents believed the bridge was now cursed and avoided crossing the bridge!
The South Bridge gradually became a bustling area of the city, demanding a premium as more and more business moved in to capture the passing trade along the bridge. Recent excavations showed many businesses moved into the Vaults beneath the South Bridge, leaving behind evidence that the underground vaults were used as cobblers, taverns. smelters and milliners. These businesses eventually moved out as the poorly constructed vaults leaked and deteriorated. The vaults gradually became home to the poorest and disreputable sections of society.
Niddry Street Vaults
During excavation, evidence suggested that the Edinburgh Vaults had soon changed usage from thriving businesses to that of residential. Inhabitants would have had to endure, dark, damp, poorly lit and poorly ventilated living conditions, with little to no sanitation. During the deterioration years of the South Bridge Vaults, illegal trading, bodysnatching and murders took place. 30 years after the bridge was opened, these vaults were filled with rubble to discourage squatters.
Edinburgh Vaults Haunted
In 1985 the Edinburgh Vaults were excavated, revealing a labyrinth of vaulted rooms and dwelling spaces with a dark, claustrophobic and damp atmosphere. Many haunted experiences have occurred and visitors brave enough to enter The Vaults have left with scratches and scary experiences. Reports of nasty entities are common place after visiting Niddry Street. It is no surprise that the Edinburgh Vaults have become world famous for being one of the most haunted locations.
