Jane Housham: The Apprentice of Split Crow Lane

Gateshead, April 1866. Five-year-old Sarah Melvin was walking along Split Crow Lane when she disappeared. Later that night a couple walking home from the pub tripped over her body.

Painstakingly pieced together from original sources and evoking a powerful sense of place, The Apprentice of Split Crow Lane is a gripping investigation into a Gateshead child murder and uncovers a wealth of information that reveals the Victorians – their classes, their justice and their scandals – as never before.

Chaired by Sasha de Buyl
