    I don’t know why I didn’t watch this video until today but… I had the opposite feeling when visiting the park back in 1973. I was helping with a nativity play in the area and as I walked through the alley from Bow Church, turned the corner to the park, I felt like something evil was ripping at me. Now I say it was though there were Dementors in the area. I couldn’t move and could hardly breathe for the sense of evil. My friend had to grab me and physically pull me along until I was able to recover. It was truly horror personified.

    This little park was an oasis of calm during the war . I lived in my dads pub The Three Tuns in Bow Road,my niece was born in this pub and I us d to take her in her pram to the little park it was beautifully kept by Mr. Brown the park keeper .
    I never felt any bad feelings while there.

    I am a descendant of someone who was in the asylum. He was a famous tightrope walker in the 18 hundreds. He caught syphilis and went out of his mind ( a common complaint in those days). He was my great great grandfather and he died in his 40’s.
