CHILLING TALES OF CHELMSFORD

CHILLING TALES OF CHELMSFORD

Thursday 1st November
Start 19:30 Finish 21:00


A guided tour of the High Street and beyond featuring the dark scary side of Chelmsford’s history not covered by the normal textbooks.

An evening event not for the faint-hearted!
Our local “Master of the Marcarb” will lead you on a walking tour of the city describing the more unpleasant side of its history. The narration will include details of hanging, murders, ghosts, witchcraft, body snatching and much more. So if you are a bit squeamish about these types of subjects, maybe it is best you do not come.


The price is £5 per person which includes a donation to the Ideas Hub Charity. Bookings can be made by calling Alan on 07779 931401 Email cityhistorywalks@gmail.com

The walk starts opposite the railway station in Dukes Street.
