Learn about the ghostly black dog of Newgate prison and the restless spirits which manifest themselves in a nearby tavern. Hear tales of unpleasant executions such as the protestant believers who were burnt at the stake in the 16th century and the gory public death of scottish patriot William Wallace in 1305. And find out what one church had to do to discourage the body snatchers from raiding their churchyard.

One thought on “Come on one of my walks …

  1. Just reminiscing about my childhood in SW 18 I used to live on the east hill estate near st georges hospital dad had a shop in st John’s hill called the radio shack (not the USA one) used to walk to clapham junction and the other way to the high street to the Arndale centre then onto king georges park in the 70s I used to go to Eltringham school near that concrete roundabout – dare say east hill has been redeveloped by now? Hated the smell of hops from the Brewery !
