London, London

A forest near London, with a history of burials, ghosts, and unexplained lights. It's famous for its connection with the notorious highwayman Dick Turpin, who was said to have a hideout here. He held up passing carriages with his partner in crime, Tom King.

A road which runs through the forest, Hangman's Hill is known locally as a "gravity spot", drivers are said to experience a strange phenomenon whereby their car rolls up a hill, seemingly defying gravity's pull. Locals say that it's the ghost of a hangman dragging an unfortunate criminal to his execution which now pulls the cars along the road, despite the incline.
