Haunted Drakelow Tunnels
Echo, echo, echo, echo…

On Saturday 18th February Real Or Otherside set off to explore the over 3 miles of catacombs below Kidderminster, which make up the Drakelow Tunnels.  What Paranormal evidence would we unearth as we descended into the darkness?…

The tunnels were originally excavated during the Second World War for use by the Rover Car Company, then later (during the Cold War) modified to provide a protected base of operations for government and government officials.  Decommissioned in 1993, the site now stands empty and derelict… an eerie reminder of a bygone era.


Our sincere thanks to Kevin and Tina Crook from Wolf Paranormal Events for inviting us along to join one of their events…  They were gracious hosts and remain valued friends of Real Or Otherside.  With full and complete access to all areas of the tunnels for around 5 hours, the only downside we faced was knowing exactly where to start our investigation in this mammoth location!  

During our investigation of the Drakelow Tunnels we captured over 8 hours of video and audio. After the initial review process we'd shortlisted 10 potential 'hits' which, after secondary analysis / enhancement, we were able to reduce to 3 'hits' of a possible Paranormal origin

As always we have graded each 'hit' against our R.O.O. SCALE which aims to provide a guide as to how ‘unusual’ we believe them to be. Ultimately though, only you can decide … is it Real Or Otherside?

More details on how we analyse, review and present evidence can be found in our Techniques section.


Rather than you having to sit through hours of footage, we produce a video containing any evidence highlights from the investigation.

Please remember that whilst the footage is condensed into a ‘digestible’ format, what you see and hear is as it happened on location. The only modifications made during the editing process are volume increases for some of the low-level audio hits, along with minor cuts to provide a compressed version of events.

Now sit back, relax and decide for yourself … is it Real Or Otherside?

    Hi Mike and Rick, I would be interested if you are thinking of returning to this location. With the recent activity it sounds like a good location to investigate further.
