Though the legend of the Highgate ‘vampire’ continues to intrigue and be discussed, something just as wicked occurred several decades before, in the West End at Coventry Street.

 

In 1922 a giant bat-like creature had been seen in the vicinity of West Drayton Church. An old man who claimed he had seen the giant bat twenty-five years previously, maintained that it was the spirit of a vampire who had murdered a woman to drink her blood in Harmondsworth in the 1890s.

 

No one took the oldster’s tale seriously. Then, on the 16th April 1922 so began a series of attacks on the general public which bore all the marks of a blood-sucking assailant. Several people witnessed a tall black creature with wings (similar to Mothman) flying around a church..
