The Southwark Mysteries


This is a very interesting book about the spirit of Southwark called The Goose who has dictated various rhymes and prose to John Constable.

The Goose is the spirit of a prostitute; this spirit was disturbed when The Crossbones Cemetery in Southwark, London was also disturbed during the extension of the Jubilee line of the London Underground in 1996 and seems to be trying to become a goddess.

Vigils are done at the Crossbones Graveyard on the 23rd of each month and offerings of keys and flowers are left at the gates. Her mystery plays have been performed at Southwark Cathedral and if she has enough followers in my opinion she will become a goddess.

Anyone who is interested in following a modern English goddess should read this book. I found it interesting, but I have already been claimed.
