British Pathe News recorded an explosion at the Royal Gunpodwer Mills in Waltham Abbey in 1940.
On that fateful morning, 6000lbs of Nitro Glycerine accidentally exploded. Windows were blown out across London as debris rained on Waltham Abbey.
Shudder and Shiver
A rip in time has now opened to that night in 1940. It seems the shudder in the earth from the explosion has caused a number of strange things to happen. There are reports of twisted apparitions, whose presences’ belong in Spooky Myth and History. It appears the explosion has awoken the dead…..
The Secret Island at the Royal Gunpowder Mills, Waltham Abbey, Essex will be “locked down” under armed guards to try and stop ghosts and ghouls from wreaking havoc on the rest of the country.

If you would rather be scared at home than on a spooky walk, why not throw a “Helloween” party
This is a 6 Players mystery game from ITM Games.
The game is set in the very old manor house called MacArbe Manor, where you and your guests gather. With the rain beating down and the lightning lighting up the gables while the thunder roars in your ears like a demon, do you really want to sit and tell stories? Of course you do! For a start, the other need to hear your tale about being cursed………or maybe you are all cursed.
Or could there be a more earthly explanation…
