The Town Moor - Haunted History

The Town Moor, Newcastle

Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Tyne and Wear

The Town Moor is a large area of common land, which serves as the largest park in the city and hosts various public events, including an annual travelling funfair known as The Hoppings. The park has a much more sinister past as the former site of the city's gallows, where hundreds of people were hanged for various crimes, including 16 for witchcraft. The whole area is said to be haunted by disembodied cries and screams and the sighting of dark shadowy figures.
