Ghosts and Monsters of Smithfield Walk

The (sort of cute) Black Dog of Newgate
Saturday 29 October 2016
6.30pm - 8pm(-ish)
This event has sold out. We are very sorry and we hope to re-host it at a later date.

Meet at Farringdon Station, Cowcross Street, London EC1M 6BY

Clerkenwell and Smithfield EC1 are steeped in history, soaked in blood and crawling with 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 1⁄2 hours 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.
