St. Bartholomew

 


barthol.jpg (57747 bytes)Believed by many to be the most haunted church in London, this Norman building stands solemnly in Smithfield, close by to the site where hundreds of people have been executed. One of the unfortunate victims was a priest that was burnt alive in an iron cage during the reign of Henry VIII. Visitors to the church grounds have reported tortured cries apparently coming from nowhere, and the disturbing scent of burned flesh.

The ghost of the founder of the church, a twelfth century monk named Rahere, haunts the area around his tomb. All witnesses to this haunting say that the cowled monk is a peaceful ghost, and is not in the least bit frightening.
