In the present day, a child’s crying has been heard from beneath the Cornish Engine and it is starting to unnerve the tourists. The Museum has invited the master of the supernatural, Jack Daw, to resurrect the past and uncover the truth about what happened all those years ago
It was 1871 and every level was bustling with activity in preparation for the grand opening of the 100inch Cornish Engine. There was to be a huge gala to celebrate London’s answer to clean water. The violinists were tuning-up, the Manager was practicing his speech and some last minute mechanical issues were being fixed. However, two unexpected guests from the workhouse have turned up, demanding to see the small boy that was apprenticed to the Chief Engineer.
