On this day in 1590 Governor John White returned to Plymouth after his unsuccessful attempt to locate his family and the rest of the settlers of the lost colony of Roanoke. You can learn more about the unsolved mystery of the lost colony by attending my walking tour of Plymouth's paranormal past, The Strange History Of Plymouth, which leaves from the shrimp obelisk near the Mayflower Steps at 2 and 3 pm this Saturday and also on the 30th and 31st of October. The tour is suitable for the whole family and costs only £6 per adult and £4 for children under 11 (all under 16s must be accompanied by a responsible adult). It's perfect for Halloween and a half term day trip. If you live in the South West of England you can't call yourself a true Fortean until you've been on the tour, so come on and take a walk on the weird side!
And now the news:
