The Bank of England is the central bank of the United Kingdom and the model on which most modern central banks have been based. It was established in 1694, making it is the second oldest central bank in the world, and the world's 8th oldest bank.
The Bank of England has occupied its place on Threadneedle Street since 1734. However, since 1811 it has also become linked to the story of the Black Nun. In that year, and employee of the Bank was convicted and condemned to death for forgery. His sister was driven mad with grief and each day for the next 25 years would attend the bank, attired in black, enquiring for her brother. Following her own death, she was interred in the churchyard on the Bank’s premises. Since then, her apparition has been sighted outside the building.
