The pathway which ends at the area where the infamous Newgate Prison
once stood. It has been demolished. All the more evil criminals were placed there and there's a big black dog that roams that street. Legend has it that back in the time of a great famine, a man was imprisoned at Newgate, charged with sorcery. His cellmates tore him to bits and ate him. That very night, they themselves were torn to bits by a huge black dog. Once the victim was avenged, it disappeared and from that day on, it would appear on the evening before every execution and it leaves behind the smell of death when it disappears. The little street in the photo is called "Deadman's Walk." It was where prisoners walked to be executed.
The only remaining bit remaining of this church (sorry, forgot which church).
This area was once a public execution site where they hanged seven people at a time.
The tavern beside the public execution site where people can eat while watching the hangings. In the cellar was there the prisoners would wait until it was their turn to die, and sometimes they can wait a long while before there's seven in total to hang. There's a ghost lurking in the cellar which they call Fred.

This area here was where they dug a deep pit where they tossed in infected people in the great plague. Instead of helping them, they'd just toss them in the pit with the corpses since they're going to die anyway. They may also lock you up in your own house and let you starve to death if they have reason to suspect you have it. Just like witches, if someone hated you, they could just say you have the plague and that is enough for them to board you up, whether you have it or not.
The area where the ghost of Isabella of France
, Queen consort to Edward II of England
can be found. Legend has it that Isabella hated him and conspired with Roger Mortimer
to kill him. If she did, she wasn't caught. Another legend states that Edward II was killed by shoving a red hot poker up his butt. Nice, but today experts don't believe that's what happened. Funny thing though. After she died they put his heart in her hands so if she really did have him killed, that'd be really ironic.
Just wanted to take a photo of the full moon.
