This canal lock acquired it’s name from it’s red lock gates and the abundance of red clay that was found along the canal in this area.
Is Red Lock Haunted?
Many workers died of malaria when building the canal and it’s possible that they haven’t left yet.
The spirits seem to focus around this small cement bridge. It could have been built over a mass grave for workers, maybe too poor for a Christian burial.
While I were there we got some weird whitish spots in some of my pictures. Using the orb chart we found that the color white means protection. Could the ghosts be protection there grave?!?!
