Ghosts and Monsters of Smithfield Walk

Saturday 26 October 2013
6.30pm start
Book online (50p admin fee per ticket)
Meet outside
Farringdon station on Cowcross Street, EC1

Clerkenwell and Smithfield EC1 are steeped in history, soaked in blood and crawling with 

The Smithfield Ghost
ghosts. Meet at Farringdon station for a walk that includes a gut-wrenching phantom black dog, haunted plague pits, hungry ghosts, poltergeists, haunted pubs, subterranean folklore and the devilish secret of Bleeding Heart Yard.

This Halloween walk is almost circular and covers legends and monsters of Smithfield Market, Cock Lane, Newgate Prison, St Bartholomew’s church and hospital and much more.

This almost circular guided walk will take around 1 hour – 1 ¼ and ends near a number of pubs for those wishing to continue the discussion.

Your guide is London Fortean Society host Scott Wood. Scott is the irregular writer of Fortean London for Londonist and the author of the forthcoming London Urban Legends: The Corpse of the Tube.

And don't forget our 31 October Halloween Ghost Night in the pub.
