Features

28 The Most Haunted House in London (cover story)
According to its Wikipedia entry, it is the most haunted property in London - but have the garbled tales of ghosthunters and the advert of the Internet added too many layers of legend to the real story? Jan Bondeson goes in search of the truth about 50 Berkeley Square.

36 A Haunting on Scandal Street: The Cock Lane Ghost Revisited
Roger Clarke delves into the background of a notorious 18th-century haunting and finds that with its emphasis on sex, the supernatural and the seamy side of London life, the story of the Cock Lane ghost was in many ways a precursor to every tabloid sensation since...

42 Nightmare Before Christmas: The Strange Disappearance of Oliver Lerch
On Christmas Eve 1889, Oliver Lerch went out to fetch some water from the well and was never seen again, his cries of terror echoing in the night skies... Theo Paijmans and Chris Aubeck turn literary detectives and attempt to trace this enduring weird tale back to its ultimate source.

46 Vanishing in Plain Sight
Paul Sieveking considers the notoriously slippery subject of mysterious disappearances.
