MURDER, MYSTERY AND MAYHEM – THE DARKER SIDE OF DEAL                

A Walk by Gregory Holyoake

2.00pm – 4.00pm                        

Explore the darker side of our historic port.  Lieutenant Gammage was hanged for murder from the yardarm in full sight of the assembled fleet; Captain Boys was compelled to eat the corpses of his fellow crewmen when cast adrift on his homeward voyage from Jamaica.  Dr Crippen, the wife killer, was recognised as he sailed through the Downs on board SS `Montrose` while the Victorian serial killer, `Jack the Ripper`, sent a message in a bottle that landed on the beach near Sandown.  Learn about the activities of convicts and cannibals, spies and smugglers, pirates and press gangs as we wander through the winding streets of Deal.    


A two-hour brisk stroll starting at the entrance to Deal Pier and finishing at St Andrew’s Church Hall for refreshments
