MAY 2018

We heard some truly horrible tales all expertly told by Neil Storey with many local references. Tales of drunkenness, theft, murder and witchcraft and the awful punishments that went with them. The talk was illustrated with some frightening props – a scold’s bridle, hobbles, fetters, a branding iron, a thumb screw, a hangman’s noose and a reproduction executioner’s axe. How glad we were that we didn’t live in those harsh times. Neil concluded his talk with a ghost story which made us all ……JUMP!

The competition for an item linked to the talk proved to be too much of a challenge for most people but 3 people managed it and the prize of a cream tea for two was won by Val for her newspaper report about a suspected poisoning in Trunch in 1862.
