Bessie Surtees House

Bessie Surtees had fallen in love with a man whom her parents disapproved of and banned her from seeing him. She climbed out of a window and onto a waiting horse ridden by her lover as they planned to elope to Scotland, but they were pursued. But round the corner at Dog Leap Stairs (at the foot of Dean Street) their pursuers fell down and tumbled down the steps, killing a number of men and horses. The sounds of horses have been heard at this tragic spot. Bessie is said to stil be seen, staring out of the window she used to escape for her lover.
