Re­gard­ing pol­ter­geist ac­tiv­ity at the old Corona­tion Street set [Ghostwatch, Ft354:18]: Flecky Ben­nett’s haunted Manch­ester Canal Walk goes past the wall of the now aban­doned set, which is di­rectly over the road from the St Johns Gar­dens, site of tens of thou­sands of buri­als. Flecky him­self be­lieves the haunt­ings at the old set stemmed di­rectly from that burial ground, pos­si­bly due to

some necro­man­tic ne­far­i­ous­ness by the poet John By­rom and his Hell Fire as­so­ciates. Also not far from that lo­ca­tion is the most haunted mod­ern of­fice block on YouTube – the call cen­tre where all sorts of pol­ter­geist ac­tiv­ity were recorded on se­cu­rity cam­eras. If any­one finds them­selves with a loose cou­ple of hours in Manch­ester they could do worse than seek out Flecky Ben­nett and his macabre ghost walks. Christo­pher Will­cox By email
