Visit ghosts much? 😃 Just joshing. A great read for those who like words in the shadows.

i liked it. Had to reread it just to get the jest of it. Reminded me of England back in Jack the Ripper times.
Thumbs up

Interesting, I think as a reader I would like it more if t here were descriptions to go with the places. As it is now, it reads as a list.

Interesting. I almost want someone to turn this into a rap. You must have done your research with the haunts and horrors of London. I think you should put spaces between the lines to make it easier to read. Other than that, it's good.

A Dark tale of ghostly people in London at pointed destinations....most of which I am familiar with.
the cemetery notions, setting with death in the air....
Ghostly good.
Best, Betty
