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.
So how did a protestant preacher end up facing a traitor’s death?
What methods did the Witch Finder General use to confirm acts of witchcraft?
In which Chelmsford buildings are there believed to be ghosts or paranormal activity?
If you would like to know more about the dark side of the history of Chelmsford and find the answers to these questions, then join us on this walk.
A word of warning though if you do not like stories of hangings, murders and of course ghosts then this walk is not for you!
