Old Steine, Brighton

John Robinson
Robinson was an eighteenth century adventurer and soldier of fortune whose luck ran out in Persia - his eyes were burnt out with hot irons after supporting a failed rebellion. A sympathetic merchant helped Robinson return to England; the adventurer finally made it back to his home town of Brighton, only to die along Old Steine. John's phantom was seen lying in the road by a police office who was physically sick after looking at his face, and by a woman who was so shocked by the appearance of the entity she spent a night in hospital.
