    That is a rumour I think, I think Tom Slemen has circulated it and made it urban myth. But where is the evidence for this?
    Did Mackenzie make some sort of will?
    Plus, has anyone ever tried to open the pyramid?

    I hope you're not encouraging people to open the pyramid, Carrie?
    This is one story that Tom Slemen didn't start, and, as far as I know, it's true.
    William Mackenzie was a gambler, and wanted to be buried sitting up at a card table holding a winning hand.

    ta kev!

    I have always been interested in the pyramid since I was a kid.

    I fear that if anything is developed on the site, it will be cleared away

    It better bloody not be cleared!!!! The place needs a sympathetic restoration and the tomb left alone.

    i know. but i bet modern developers wouldn't think that way!

    I remember my dad telling me as a kid that some workmen had once tried to open the tomb but been unsuccessful. I dont know if that is true at all...

    Philip...Where does the myth originate?

    Can't remember, Carrie, but I heard about it years before Tom Slemen's books.
    And it just makes sense - why else have such an unusual shape?
    What date was TS's first book, BTW?

    Isn't it still owned by that Doctor who won't give up the lease on the land? I'm sure that's why it's in such a state. The Uni want it for their land but then again, the Uni are trying to buy out the Masonic Hall in Hope Street - not if I've got anything to do with it

    hmmmm i won't say anything about that!!

    a doctor? hmmm....i don't see the point in owning land like this and letting it fall into ruin, although he is probably waiting until someone offers him the best price...
    I hope the uni don't buy it. They won't restore it, and the tomb will go for sure in my opinion

    The church is Listed Grade II*, which is a higher listing than Grade II.
    The churchyard and the graves will be included, so the only threat to the tomb is from people wanting to break into it.

    I think Missy was also happy with the idea of me creating a new thread out of a thread that was moving in a new direction. That's all.
