The Temple

he Temple, situated on the banks of the River Thames, was once the home of the English Knights Templar, who were based at the Inns Of Court until 1312. The Temple was then passed on and parts of it were leased to lawyers.  It is a lawyer that is now thought to haunt the courtyards and passages of this historic place.

The figure that hurries across the courtyard, dressed in wig and gown and carrying a bundle of papers under his arm, is thought to be the ghost of Hawkins. His figure has been seen on many occasions particularly around midnight and during the early hours of the morning.
