Adelphi Arch

      The last remaining Adelphi Arch, also known as "Jenny's Hole" was the scene of the savage death of Jenny, a young Victorian prostitute who was mercilessly strangled by a dissatisfied client on the filthy bundle of rags that passed for her bed.

       On occasion her last struggle can be heard. Her terrifying screams echo around the tunnel and the sound of her feet scrabbling and beating against the stone floor, seemingly forever, slowly die away as life ebbs from her body.

       There have been reports of a rag-covered broken body materialising and slowly fading away as the air grows deathly quiet.
