The Thunderbox: Mary King's Close

Ghost Stories in the Sunlight

Mar 28 2024 • 28 mins

This episode is a little chaotic folks. Liv had done this research a while back and kind of forgot where she was going with the story, Jess' recording program crashed and Liv tried something different with the mic (spoiler alert it didn't work). If you're still with us after all of that, welcome to the crowded, dark, dense and haunted street of Mary King's Close. Stretching over several layers, and roofed in by the City Chambers above, the Close has reportedly been haunted since a devastating plague outbreak in 1645.
