Event description

Description

On 9 July 1864, respectable banker Thomas Briggs boarded his homebound train at Fenchurch Street Station. Alas, Mr Briggs never got home...he was found mortally wounded on the railway line. A young German tailor, Franz Muller, was convicted and executed for murder. This is the story of Britain's first railway murder, a controversial case which still has unanswered questions. Starting at Aldgate, we'll take a leisurely stroll through the City and expore aspects of the case. Was this murder, or a miscarriage of justice? This walk concludes outside the Old Bailey. Autumn in the City is glorious but the weather is unpredictable, please dress for the weather. Check your travelling options at www.tfl.gov.uk. I look forward to your company...
