On 29th October, just two days until Halloween, the York Tories embarked on York’s premier ghost walk. They started at Clifford’s Tower in the dark of the night, and ventured forth to uncover the mysteries and secrets of supernatural York.
An ancient city, York has accumulated many a restless spirit, as the Tories soon found out. These souls include the infamous Dick Turpin and Guy Fawkes, both of whom could not be stopped by the death sentence.
Following the walk, the Tories toured some of the most haunted drinking establishments in the city. Here they had encounters with a completely different kind of spirit.
The society learnt a lot about the City that night and the not-so-departed citizens on the walk, as well as getting their annual exorcise (pun intended), and they look forward to next year. For now, however, Happy Halloween!
