Storyline

You are Gregory Grail, the first ever amateur fireman in London — in an age before firefighting organizations exist. After losing your family to a house fire as a child, formulating ways to extinguish fire became your life’s work.

You’ve been called to help put out a fire. At first, it appears to be a situation you can handle… but as the flames begin to spread across the city, you realise it’s no ordinary fire! Can you extinguish this inferno before the entire city of London is burnt to a crisp?

loved it - worth every penny. some of the clues were a bit obscure and some no longer in place so may need to revise sime if them - but we used hints where we got stuck and managed to complete. we found do many fabulous nooks and crannies we eoukd otherwise never have found.
