In 2009, TV presenter and former Eastenders actor Joe Swash spent the night in the vaults.

According to some reports, there are four confirmed spirits who dwell in the coffers of Edinburgh. Mr Boots, a shabby man with heavy boots, an aristocrat, a shoemaker wearing a long apron and a child, known to grab the hands of visitors.

These spooky chambers – the fortified arches of Edinburgh’s South Bridge – were first formed in 1788 and were initially used to house taverns and workshops, but later became hotbeds of criminal activity. It is said that body thieves hid corpses in the coffers.

A BBC TV production crew, filming a one-off TV show featuring the actor, recorded unexplained voices in the chests during a Swash sleepover.

He was the only person in the vaults, but despite this, his microphone picked up unexplained voices during his sleepover. He didn’t hear the voices at the time. BBC engineers initially thought the noises could be derived voices in the tunnels of nearby nightclubs, but were able to rule out that.

Voices continued to be heard on the recording for about twenty minutes before stopping abruptly after what appeared to be the sound of children screaming.

The recordings were broadcast as part of the completed program Joe Swash believes in ghosts on BBC Three in January 2010.

To date, no clear explanation has been found for the recordings, which were shown as part of the completed program: Joe Swash Believes In Ghosts on BBC3.

Since 2015, most of the area is now closed to the public and access is strictly controlled.
