Shooting film photographs with my vintage Halina Paulette camera can be a fun way to explore the city. I put the results on my flickr.
Though I took these photos a few months ago, their creepy atmosphere goes perfectly with the facts I recently unearthed about All Saints Church in Fulham.
All Saints was used in the classic horror movie The Omen. The tower is where *spoiler alert* Father Brennan gets impaled by a lightning rod.
Yes, this is the church which filled childhood nightmares that were not about Jaws.
The cemetery is also a mix of beautiful and creepy. The foundation dates back 900 years, though the tower is from 1440 and a majority of the church was rebuilt in the 1880s.
It sits on the River Thames adjacent to Bishops Park and more than a few Bishops of London have been buried here.
Though not on the usual circuit of London churches to visit, if you love film or hauntingly beautiful places, Fulham's All Saints Church is the perfect place to visit.
