Hey guys, today I wanted to share a story with you from my native Liverpool. There is many accounts of ghostly happenings and time slips in Liverpool
but the story that sticks out most to me is that of "The Rodney street spectre".
It is said that the ghost of William Mackenzie wanders the area and has been seen occasionally. In life, Mackenzie was said to be a serious gambler.
He lost fortunes gambling. One day he gambled against the devil and the devil took his soul as payment. The devil said to William "I will take your
soul when you are buried in the earth". William, being sharp-witted, left specific instructions for how he wanted his body to be left when he passed.
It is said that inside his tomb, his body is sat upright at a table, holding a winning hand of cards. His spirit now wanders the earth as it cannot

My main reason for posting this story though is his tomb. It fascinates me. I have never seen anything like this in the resto of the area. It is
unique. What do you guys think of it? I know some members are sensitive to energies and emotions, do you pick anything up about it?
