Hi there,

Thank you for visiting the Patreon page for Flickering Lamps!  My name is Caroline Swan and I'm a London-based historian and writer who provides all of the blog's content.  Flickering Lamps was founded in 2014 to provide meticulously-researched, but entertaining and accessible, histories of the places around us - in particular, ruins, historic buildings, graveyards and the sites of strange or significant events.  Some of these places are in well-known parts of London, while others are more obscure. 

Although many of the sites and stories featured on Flickering Lamps have, on the surface, a rather dark or macabre theme, a deeper look into the history of these places often uncovers surprising or poignant stories.  Conversely, some rather innocuous-looking places featured on the blog sometimes have quite shocking and grim histories.  I carefully research each article, and always visit featured sites to take photographs which I then use to illustrate the blog.  

Why become a patron?
This Patreon has been set up to help with the costs of running Flickering Lamps - in particular its web hosting and storage.  Those who sign up as a patron will pay a small amount per month to support; in the event of a blog hiatus, patrons will not be charged.  New articles will generally be posted every two to three weeks.

As a way of saying "thank you" to those supporting me on Patreon, I will be publishing Patron-exclusive 'extras' on my Patreon blog - these will include additional photographs, and 'bite-sized' posts about interesting places and people I've come across on my research trips that somehow didn't quite fit into any of the articles I publish on Flickering Lamps.

Thank you for visiting my Patreon page!
