In The Footsteps Of Jack The Ripper, in which we’ll be looking at the other murders to have taken place in “Blood Alley”

Description

Dorset Street in London’s Whitechapel is an address well known to Ripperologists. It was there at 13 Miller’s Court that Jack the Ripper went berserk on the night of November 8th–9th, 1888, leaving behind the shredded, horrifically mutilated corpse of Mary Jane Kelly, his final canonical victim. But the story of Dorset Street’s murders doesn’t end there. Starting this month, is part one of a new series, In The Footsteps Of Jack The Ripper, in which we’ll be looking at the other murders to have taken place in “Blood Alley.” Don’t miss it.

Murder In Your Village is another new series which begins this month. A gruesome tale from Watchfield, Oxfordshire’s past.
