Enter the labyrinth. Perambulator and psycho-geographer Robert Kingham leads us down the twisting, turning tunnels and lost highways of the London labyrinth to meet author, mystic and cockney visionary Arthur Machen.

We explore Machen’s odd life and books - and some strange parts of the city - as we uncover the ways he was to influence the folk horror movement and countercultural cult authors H P Lovecraft and Alan Moore.

We ask: was Machen the first London psycho-geographer? Did he really take a packet of currant biscuits with him on his epic perambulations through the sleeping city?

Where is the labyrinth?
