I’m always looking for new and extraordinary London stories to tell so when I heard that the Hannah Courtoy Mausoleum in Brompton Cemetery was a portal, I knew at once that I had to tell the story.
So I did!
Picture of the storytelling by Alison Cotton of The Left Outsides
It has been quite a journey. The legend that the Courtoy Mausoleum is much more than it seems has been growing for several years. Firstly rumours began to circulate that it is in fact a time machine.
More recently the ‘psychic researches’ of Stephen Coates have described its occult creators, Samuel Warner and egyptologist Joseph Bonomi and the tomb’s use as part of ‘the London Teleportation network’. So not a Time Machine but a “space machine” if you will. The finished tale is my own interpretation of Stephen’s idea.
I am no longer telling this story in the Cemetery, but you can listen to a recording of the whole thing here on Mythos Podcast, just click below:
