suicides and a murder occurred in this terraced London house under mysterious
house, now demolished, had a tall tower built into it which claimed the lives
of so many suicide victims, the first being Anne Hinchfield in 1877 at the age
of twelve. In the 1930s, a nurse working at the house murdered her charge by
hurling the baby from the tower and then jumped herself.
author of 'Our Haunted Kingdom', Andrew Green, describes the emotions he felt
after climbing the tower in the 1940s. He felt that there was a presence there
silently 'persuading' him to fall from the tower, convincing him that there
was only a short distance from the parapet to the garden below.
