    Default The Blackie - Haunted?

    Hello all,

    I've recently been in touch with someone who's told me of an odd experience they had in The Blackie (the old congregational church on the corner of Great George’s Street and Nelson Street) some years ago and I was wondering if anyone here had ever heard anything about the building being haunted? Or, for that matter, if anyone knows why it's called the The Blackie?

    Cheers

    It was called the Blackie because it was black with soot.
    Haven't heard any stories about ghosts.

    I dont know if its true or if I'm making a bit of a fool of myself, but was it not Blacklers before they knocked it down, and built it again where Wetherspoons stands next to St Johns Precinct?

    That's not true so it must be the latter. Only kidding of course.

    Blacklers was rebuilt on the site of the old Blacklers that was bombed during the war.
