Bleeding Heart Yard

Bleeding Heart Yard

Urban legend has it that Bleeding Heart Yard—a cobbled courtyard in Farringdon in the City of London—is so-named to mark the death of Lady Elizabeth Hatton. The murdered wife of Sir William Hatton, the local landowner, was found in this yard with her body ripped apart but her heart still pumping blood. Fortunately, her specter has never been seen.
