Red Lion Square

After the restoration of the monarchy, the bodies of those responsible for the execution of Charles I (John Bradshaw, who was the head of the Court of Justice, Oliver Cromwell and his son in law, Henry Ireton) were exhumed and taken to the Red Lion inn (since demolished). From there, the bodies were hung, then decapitated after sundown and the remains flung into a pit. The heads were affixed to spikes outside Westminster Hall. The ghosts of the three men, their heads restored, have been seen walking across the square, diagonally from north to south, arm-in-arm according to some and deep in conversation.
