Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

I have chosen to post this shot to link with the well publicised 400th anniversary of the trials of The Lancashire Witches.

These so called witches all lived in the Pendle area. They were probably unfortunates who were accused of witchcraft because of ignorance and superstition.

My photograph shows the church at Newchurch-in-Pendle. This church has the 'eye of God' sculptured into the wall so that it could watch who was not attending church. Near the south wall (carved with a skull) is the alledged grave of Alice Nutter, one of the witches.

Pendle is alive with 'Witch Activities' and a walk (taking in the villages from which the witches came) and ending at Lancaster, (where they were tried and convicted) has been arranged. There is a good link here which details the walk and the story of The Lancashire Witches.

I hope you find this interesting and thank you for stopping by, Bev :-)
