Hidden Highgate


Today, the Darkest London blog registered it’s 50,000th view. That seems like quite the milestone, so I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who’s read, commented or helped me out.

If you’re a regular follower of this blog, you might be rather irritated about it’s lack of updating. I’d love to be able to do more, but it’s having to sit on the back-burner at the moment – the reason for this is that I’ve been working on a book on a specific area of London which has taken up much of my free time. Hopefully, that tome (and, yes, it’s a tome, it’s huge) will be out by the end of the year. It’s very similar to some of the pieces on the site, but concentrated on one single area – it’s been a struggle not to put some of the stuff up here immediately, but I hope it’s worth the wait.

Once that’s done, I’m starting work on the first Darkest London book proper. It will contain a lot which is akin to the stuff on this site, and hopefully there’ll be a new one each year, like a bumper fun annual.

So thanks for reading, and I’ll endeavour to post more frequently in the run-up to Christmas!

Next up: the story of TFI Friday’s table top and the Hyde Park Pet Cemetary.
