The Screaming Tunnel
North Side      This is the north end of the "Screaming Tunnel" as seen from Warner Road. 

     The tunnel was built under what is now the main Canadian National Railway line and was to be part of a railway that would run parallel to the Welland Canal.

In tunnel from north      The railway was never built, but the tunnel is still there.

     This is the view looking southwards into the tunnel from Warner Road. 

path      On the south side of the tunnel, a path leads up a small hill.

    According to legend, there was a farm house on the top of the hill on the south side of the tunnel. The house caught fire, and a young girl ran down the hill presumably to get help. There must have been a spark on her clothing which is said to have burst into flames when she was in the tunnel. 

top of hill      The unfortunate girl burned to death; and her dying screams can be heard to this day if one lights a match in the tunnel after dark - - - or so the story goes.

     This is the area at the top of the hill where the farm house is said to have been located.

The tunnel is said to be haunted,
