Geoffrey Abbott is an authority on all things macabre and gruesome. He became a Yeoman Warder (beefeater) in 1947 and took up residence in the Tower of London. In the name of research he has been locked in jail cells, stood on execution chamber trap-doors and has even had the hangman's noose placed around his own neck!
