A Tik Tok The influencer explained the appalling reason why a floating arm was built into the wall of the London Tower.
About 2.8 million tourists visit the famous London Fortress, which was once the safest castle in the country. But with as much as it’s hard to believe, many may have missed the horrible part of the body.
The creepy cut skeletons of the hand have a creepy yellow hue and are hidden behind frosted glass in a section of the north Byward Tower wall that hundreds of thousands of people can walk past unknowingly every day.
And that’s ironic at arm’s length, reports MyLondon.
But behind this object lies a gruesome story, as recently revealed by one of Tower’s residents and influential TikTok figure Megan Clawson, that goes all the way back to the gruesome punishments we saw in the Middle Ages.
Influencer Megan lives in the fortress where her father is Beefeater.
The TikToka star became famous with her videos sharing various secrets of the historic fortress, and shared the story for ‘The Hand In The Wall’ on her page earlier this year.
Megan described how so far she is “very accustomed to the humor on the Yeoman Warders gallows inside the Tower of London.”
“They don’t leave a little humor Easter eggs around a tower that many visitors miss, ”added Megan, who told her 199,000 TikTok followers,“ including a hand in the wall ”.
As she walked through the tower towards her arm in the video, she then shared the gruesome reason why she was supposed to be there.

Megan told her followers: “The story goes that you once needed a password to enter. To give a password, you had to put your hand in that spice [indicates hole in the wall] next to the North Byward Tower. “
However, what she described below suggests that for anyone who does not know these words, it might be a terrible punishment.
Megan dramatically informed her followers, “If you made a mistake with the password, you would have your arm cut off right away.”
William the Conqueror built the stone tower in the 1070s and was the protector of crown jewels and home to the Yeoman guardians and of course the famous ravens who, according to legend, guard the tower, are cared for by Lord Raven.
