Event Details

Village of the Damned

 
 
 
Take a gentle walk through the historic country lanes, past cottages and Georgian homes through the village of Highgate in North London.
A timeless journey through a village standing atop a hill overlooking the capital, it has long been the escape of many a character looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of London town.
 
Legendary figures such as Dick Whittington, the thrice Lord Mayor of London is said to have laid claim to fame here upon hearing the 'bells of bow' call him back.
 
In his shadow darker tales can be found, from a practising witchcraft protection spell disturbed only in the 20th Century after near 400 years of being in place.
The haunt of one of England's most acclaimed poets, Samuel Coleridge, buried at the height of St Paul's Cathedral after succumbing to the vices of the day.
 
The legend of Francis Bacon, the man who discovered refridgeration and whose experiments still haunt the anicent village pond to this day, disturbing the locals and terrifying all who see them.

Learn of the highway robbers, the murders and the thieves who used this most secluded village as part of their debuachery and the barmaids, murdered through theatre and rebellion shrouded in mystery and wine.
 
The heights of Highgate really come alive, in this journey through this country village, slowly being eaten away by the monster of the city as it encrouches into its domain.
 
It's a place you can fall in love with and never want to live, and on this walk you'll hear of those souls who never have, and never will.

Please dress appropriately based on the weather.  
 
If you do not want to pay in advance and pay in person, you can, but you must email me to let me know you're planning on attending and for me to confirm that there are still places available.
