3 Days investigating the legend of Dick Turpin
Night One Hampstead Heath, Spaniards Inn
Night Two Epping Forest
Night Three Knavesmire
265 Years ago, a man destined for disaster made his way north to York on the run from a vengeful army, stopping along the way to confiscate the riches of those he deemed too privileged. Following his arrest in October 1738, Dick Turpin spent his final Christmas and New Year at York Castle prison before being put to death in April 1739. It was a tourist attraction then, and to this day visitors come to hail the legend of Dick. This New Year, Yvette Fielding, Derek Acorah and the Most Haunted team will start a three-day extravaganza of paranormal investigations that start in London and make their way to York. Will they solve the mystery that is Dick Turpin?
