Interested in Smethwick Baths ghost hunts but want to find out a bit more? Then read on…
The baths were built in 1933 and were known then as Thimblemill Baths.
During World War II, the baths were used as an air raid shelter. The pools are still in use today, and the building offers the addition of a gym and dance studio. Famous bands to play at the baths included The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Small Faces and The Kinks.
During World War II, 80 local people were killed and many others were injured. They were all taken to the baths for their protection. A temporary morgue was set up in the building.
300 bodies were discovered in a plague pit when the baths were being built. They remain in their original resting place today, 10ft beneath the bath’s reception.
The list of spirits said to haunt the baths is extensive.
Full bodied apparitions are seen. Wet footprints have been found on the floor first thing in the morning. A heavy wooden table was apparently thrown at a group of female investigators. This is just scratching the surface on reported activity.
The dark, concrete subways below the baths seem to witness more spiritual activity than the baths themselves. Which is saying something!
