S5E11 – The Bakewell Witches

The Bakewell Witches

James mutters an incantation and whisks Alasdair off to Bakewell in the Peak District, a town famous for its variety of puddings. There, the Loreboys meet a pair of ALLEGED witches. Hear how they use their devilish powers to… make and sell women’s hats.

Oh, the horror! It’s the legend of the Bakewell Witches*.

*Story may contain innocent women and one lying Scotsman.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
