Manson and the Talgarth Hotel
The hotel where a Charles Manson killing may have occurred.
Location: 1--7 Talgarth Road, West Kensington, London, W14 9DB
Description: This small and cosy hotel in West Kensington is where Joel Pugh, 29, a former lover of Charles Manson devotee Sandra Good, was found dead. The judge ruled suicide at the time.
Doubts have remained over the verdict, with many suspecting that cult leader and serial killer Charles Manson ordered one of his followers believed to have been in Britain at the time to carry out the hit.
