S4E48 – Cornwall’s Loneliest Vicar

Cornwall’s Loneliest Vicar

James takes Alasdair way out west; as far west as you can go in the UK without getting wet. We’re talking about the wall of corn itself: Cornwall, and the tale of a peculiar vicar who managed to alienate his entire community.

Basically, this episode is like Wild Wild West, but with two Kevin Klines and no Will Smiths. Guest starring: a pack of dogs; a 14th Century heretic and some lovely, lovely apples!

Plus, eagle-eared listeners will spot some classic Loremen Mispronunciations.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
