The Ferguson Gang

In 1933 the Old Town Hall on the Isle of Wight was given to us by the mysterious Ferguson Gang, a group of young women who wore masks and used fictitious names such as Red Biddy, Sister Agatha and Bill Stickers. Their bizarre exploits have secured their reputation as some of our most unusual benefactors. If you’re intrigued by the story of the Ferguson Gang and would like to find out more about the incredible ladies behind it, then pick up a copy of ‘Ferguson’s Gang: The Remarkable Story of the National Trust Gangsters’.
