10 Rillington Place is an address that sends a chill down one’s spine. Within its grimy walls its notorious resident, John Christie murdered six women and then concealed them in house and garden. There are many gruesome aspects to the case including Christie’s sexual proclivities. But most unsettling of all is the fact that another tenant in Christie’s house, Timothy Evans, was hanged for murdering his wife and baby girl when Christie may have committed the act.
This ‘bloody history’ takes you inside the claustrophobic confines of Notting Hill’s most famous address, drawing on the wealth of Christie trial records at the National Archives, from medical reports to floor plans of the murder house, as well as the inquiries that re-examined the Evans’ verdict.
