Cleopatra's Needle

 


cleo.jpg (34210 bytes)
This 3,500 year old granite obelisk was transported from Egypt and now stands on the banks of the River Thames between the Waterloo and Hungerford Bridges.

It is not the monument that is said to be haunted but the area surrounding it. Mocking laughter has been heard there, as well as the sound of anguished, painful cries. Police have also noticed that most of the suicides that take place along this stretch of the river are generally carried out near the giant monument.

There is also a story involving a tall, nude figure that runs from behind the obelisk, jumps on to its base , and then throws itself in to the river. According to legend however, there is never a splash and the water never ripples.
