William MacKenzie’s tomb within the grounds of St Andrew’s Church.

One day in the late 1990s, I was sitting in work in Kirkdale, Liverpool when my boss asked if I could run a job down to a printers in Liverpool City Centre. It was a nice, sunny day outside so I jumped at the opportunity of getting out of the stuffy office I was sitting in. I got in my car and set off for the city centre. During the journey I had the radio on and I was listening to Radio City who had an author in the studio by the name of Tom Slemen. Tom had just released a book about ghosts who haunt Liverpool and he was regaling the tale of William MacKenzie.

Here at Jammy Toast there is nothing we love more than a good old scary ghost story late at night. It makes all the bears pull the covers up over their little heads and none of them dare get out of bed for a wee-wee during the night! Tom Slemen, in particular, is one of our favourite ghost writers because he writes stories about Liverpool and the Wirral. So, we thought we would share one with you that we heard recently…

The Ghost Of Green Lane

At the risk of sending Razzi back into hiding under his bed, we thought today we would tell you all a story we have heard recently regarding a ghost. The story revolves around Green Lane Railway Station which opened in 1886 and since then there have been umpteen stories of ghosts being seen in and around the station. One foggy evening in the early 1960s, the station was the scene of one such terrifying manifestation. It took place on a cold December night when the station was deserted except for one person waiting impatiently for a train.
