Clerkenwell House

Once a prison, the site was closed and demolished in the 1890’s, however the underground tunnels still exist. A child is known to be heard crying far in the distance, believed to be lost in the darkness. Shadows wander ahead and behind of people, and one grim spirit is said to stalk women who wander through here.
