Amen Court


Amen Court
Amen Court is situated close to St Paul's Cathedral in London, backing on to the site of the old Newgate Prison and its graveyard. This site is now known as Dead Man's Walk. It is thought that many prisoners tried to escape by climbing over the wall into Amen court.

Many people have witnessed a dark, shapeless figure crawling along the wall in the court, accompanied by the sound of clanking chains. It is thought that this figure may be the ghost of Jack Sheppard, a Newgate prisoner who escaped three times before being executed.
