18th. August 2012 is the 400th. Anniversary of the beginning of the Lancashire Witch Trials. After only two days, eight women and two men were found guilty and sentenced to death. They were hanged at Lancaster Castle on 20th. August 1612.

I thought you'd like to know!

My Mother lives within sight of Pendle Hill.
I took a walk up there on my last visit home.

It is a good documentary - the spooky cartoon figures are very much in keeping with the locations. Descendants of several of the families still live in the area.
