* King’s Lynn’s Heart15/16 Tuesday Market Place, King’s Lynn

Several legends explain why this heart is here, though all revolve around the same theme; the market square was once a place of execution, and the heart exploded out of one of the unfortunate female victim's chest, embedding into the wall (see photo opposite). Number 15 is also home to a poltergeist who throws things to the floor.
