The Headless Horseman Rides Again



As Halloween approached London City, a chilling cry could be heard in the distance. Autumn leaves, swept up by the wind, swirled and curled around us as we stood chatting in the Regents Park HUB.

The air crackled and became thick with fog. In the distance we could make out a faint glow in the sky. As we watched, the glow became brighter and a shadowy figure descended from the clouds. Our hearts began to pound, the sounds of hooves grew louder and the smell of brimstone filled the air.

The flying figure drew ever closer and we could see the dark outline of a horse and rider. The rider with eyes of fire rode his horse ever closer, hooves aflame with the green glow of hell. The eerie sound of clacking on non existent pavement became deafening and the Headless Horseman came to a stop just above us.

We stood, frozen in silence, for what seemed like hours. Our eyes transfixed on the dark form of the Horseman. Then, with a voice that filled our hearts with terror, he shouted 'Prepare yourselves, the bells have tolled! Shelter your weak, your young and your old! Each of you shall pay the final sum! Cry for mercy; the reckoning has come!'




The Headless Horseman visits London City Regents Park through out the day durring the entire month of October. Join us and you may just experience his chilling arrival!
