The Smethwick Swimming Baths might not appear to be haunted at first glance – but don’t be fooled by this elegant ‘Art Deco’ building! In previous years these swimming baths, was once a popular entertainment venue which has seen some very famous acts.

However, when the building was constructed, some 300 bodies were found buried in a plague pit directly underneath the building. Sadly, these bodies still reside there.

The ghost of a small boy has frequently been seen around the location, interestingly he appears to be covered in white powder. This is thought to possibly be the lime powder that would have been used to cover the bodies to stop the plague from spreading. Above the plague pit, sits a WWII Air Raid Shelter and this is where the boy has often been seen.

Creepy concrete tunnels under the swimming baths were originally intended for storage, but now it seems many ghosts and spirits walk these tunnels, including noisy children, a man in a boiler suit who often converses with living Contractors and the spirit of a man who seems to despise women; he’s been know to throw a table at female ghost hunters!

Unexplained sounds, movements and ghostly footprints coming out of the baths twelve hours after closing time have all been witnessed. We feel sure the presence of water helps to conduct spirit energy and we can’t wait to welcome our guests to this amazingly active venue!
