Witches, martyrs, bodysnatchers, Zulus and rioting peasants! The Black Death in Chelmsford! The horrible true stories of the Moat Farm Murder and the death of Jael Denny! The terrible tragedy of the Great Flood of 1880! The incredible histories of Hylands House and Beaulieu! Nazi bombers over Chelmsford!
Chelmsford has one of the darkest histories on record. From the skeletons lying underneath the city - which include a woolly mammoth - to the executions of thieves, witches, martyrs and murderers at Chelmsford's gaol, this book will change the way you see the town forever.
Robert the Bruce was most likely born here; Bloody Mary Tudor lived here; infamous murderers Samuel Dougal and Thomas Drory died here. Including more than sixty rare illustrations, plus an eight-page colour section, read it if you dare!
