Newgate Prison once dominated the area. What has often simply been described as ‘The Thing’ has been reported crawling and creeping along a wall that once bordered the area of Dead Man’s Walk.
The ground was used to bury those who were hanged at Newgate Prison, and some attribute this disturbing apparition to one of those lost souls.
