A South East London Folklore Society event. London was once
known as the "City of the Gallows" for the frequency of its
public executions. Since the 10th Century more than 200,000
people are believed to have been beheaded, burned at the
stake or hanged, for crimes ranging from counterfeiting to
witchcraft. Public executions were once keenly anticipated
events, attended by passionate and partisan crowds often
numbering tens of thousands and London's execution sites,
including Tower Hill, Tyburn, Smithfield and Charing Cross
became popular destinations for visitors. Public executions
were finally outlawed in Britain in 1867. Historian,
folklorist and gravestone expert Robert Stephenson will
recount some of the more grisly episodes from this once
popular spectator sport.
