    London is as rich in folklore as any city on earth and this book explores it all, from legends of pagan origins to the urban myths of today. Illustrated with old prints and photographs, it covers everything from ancient ceremonies such as beating the bounds of St Clement Danes parish, to modern ghosts like the biker who has haunted the Blackwell Tunnel since 1972; and it tells the stories of London legends such as Nell Gwynn, Dick Turpin and Sweeney Todd.
