S4E21 – Dickie’s Screaming Skull LIVE

Dickie’s Screaming Skull

Do you remember Halloween? It wasn’t ages ago! This year, James and Alasdair commemorated old Samhain with a super-spooky livestream. Sorry, liveSCREAM.

James tells Alasdair the story of Dickie – the Screaming Skull of Tunsted Farm. It is a tale as old as time: a human skull that, if removed from a house, causes all sorts of trouble. But that’s just the beginning of this Derbyshire legend. We also meet some of the largest nots you’ve ever heard of. You might even call them Hugenots.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
