City Of London Cemetery
Since the mid 1970s locals have complainted about a brilliant orange light emanating from one of the tombstones in the western section of the City of London Cemetery in Wanstead. Despite repeated attempts, investigators have been unable to find any light source outside the graveyard that could account for the phenomenon. Access the cemetery via Aldersbrook Road.
