Pendle Witches

Post by Citysliker » Sat Jul 13, 2013 11:18 pm

Hi guys,

I have been listening to your podcast whilst walking my dog in the shadow of Pendle Hill in the UK and thing about Dr Gerard's excellent field reports. There is a large amount of history surrounding this area specifically based on witchcraft and I was wondering if this could be a potential subject for one of your fine reports.

For the uninitiated you can find a rough guide here:

Even today during Halloween the Police close off the Hill and will not let anyone near which strikes me as very strange. All that manpower and resource deployed for a legend??

Just a thought guys as every episode I think about it but today I finally pitched the idea!

I can see the hill every morning from my house and it certainly has a presence.......
