Witches in Leicestershire
Wednesday November 18, 7:30pm
Host: Sandy Leong
A witchcraft craze swept through England starting in the mid 1500's and Leicestershire was no exception in having witches living in their communities. There are records of witches in Walton on the Wolds, Ashby de la Zouch & other places. Trials and executions were held in Husband Bosworth & a high profile case surrounded Belvoir Castle.
