John has an amazing knowledge of local history particularly with all things spooky and macabre! You will be entertained, educated and delighted as you join him

of this wonderfully historic town.
Owen Drew the "notorious highwayman"
Owen worked along the Sturry Road
in the city in 1726, and having been captured he had his ear nailed to a hitching post and was given a knife
to defend himself. Rather than waiting
for release the next morning, he
cut his own ear off to escape and
bled to death closet o the old
Northgate in Canterbury.
Just one of the many fascinating
stories that you'll hear as you
join the Horridly Historic Tour.
