The Lure of the Lancashire Witches


A wonderful book which tells the story of the Lancashire witches in detail, fleshing out the characters and events in a way which really helps us to understand what sort of people the witches were and what their world was like at the time of their persecution.

Out of stock


In this book the author uniquely explores how the witches have been portrayed through the centuries, revealing that over the 400 years since the infamous trials their image has changed dramatically. They have been demons, objects of pity, figures of fun, cartoonish caricatures, beautiful temptresses, to name but a few. A must-read for anyone interested in the wonderful witches of Lancashire.
