Please tell us about Clapham and surrounding areas

"In 1772 the Stockwell Ghost became a sensation. Mrs Golding reported ghostly happenings in her home that involved objects mysteriously flying around the rooms and moving by themselves. Eventually it was discovered that her servant Anna Robinson was attaching horse hair to the objects and placing them precariously on shelves, hoping to shock the old lady so that the house would be free for her to meet with her lover."
