Travel Theme: Spooky

My city is very old – two thousand years, and naturally has its share of ghost stories. So far, I haven’t managed any photos that spooky, so I’ve gone with the witches instead!

This is what happened

This is where it happened

Perhaps this is who it happened to!

  1. Well Madhu in the photo you can see a part of the 1000 year old castle on the left and on th right through the gate is the 18th century court house. Both are set within the remains of the 2000 year old Roman walls. If you believe in ghosts there will be plenty there ;-)
    Yes, if I’d been around I expect I would have gone to the ducking stool!

  2. Oh wow, Gilly, this post reminded me of the movie The Crucible. Strange to think that all these happened only a few years back. Reality can be far stranger than fiction at times.

  3. I’m always relieved to be living in this century and not there way back when. There was too much fear and ignorance in those days. Such a waste of valuable lives.

  4. What a strange thing the dunking stool was…it’s where I would have ended up. The name of the place is sort of fitting in a way…it carries the burden of their deaths forever.

    1. I’d be right there with and if we survived no doubt we would have been burnt at the stake. Heavitree is where I live and it’s named because the gallows was a tree with a heavy burden. Even now you still ask for ‘the gallows’ if you catch a bus there!

I would love to hear from you . . .
