Schneider’s Alley in Adelaide’s spooky Stonyfell a top attraction
A spooky walkway and park in Stonyfell are attracting more night-time visitors than ever since a Youtube video was posted recently, and some local residents aren’t happy.
The benefits to the local economy (surely these nocturnal tourists are spending money at local shops and the Feathers Hotel) aren’t enough to make up for the screams of terror heard in the dead of night that don’t let Stonyfellas and Stonyfillies sleep through.
Inaccurate reporting by Adelaide media is likely to exacerbate the problem, with reports on Adelaide Now and in other News Corporation media telling people that the Michael Perry Reserve is also known as Schneider’s Alley.
In fact it’s Andrews Walk that is the alley in question and it’s that claustrophobic route and nearby Clifton Manor that are the purported sites of previous ghostly goings-on.
Stories of a haunting at Clifton Manor by former owner Dr Michael Schneider have been around for years, but as aresident of the area, I can report that most of the paranormal activity after dark can be attributed to the antics of randy koalas and possums.
