London is a very haunted city because its been around since the Romans founded it as "Londonium" in 70 A.D. Richard also took us to an excavation site where roman ruins from that year were uncovered, and to another site where an ancient Roman ampitheatre stood. Richard was funny, informative, personable and a really wonderful guy. In fact, the tour was supposed to be about 1 1/2 hours and wound up being 2 1/2 hours!

STOP 1: St. Peter's Church of Cornhill

The pastor apparently became a difficult person after that, or maybe he was beforehand. The pastor later commissioned an architect to build an addition to the church. The architect and pastor wound up hating each other, so the architect designed and had sculpted a gargoyle that sits atop the renovated part of the church, with demon wings and the pastor's likeness for a face!
