S4E7 – The Ghost Coach of Burford

The Ghost Coach of Burford

Hop in James’s childhood car (a Mazda 323) and take a trip to Burford, jewel of the Cotswolds. Home of the Burford Garden Centre, Cotswold Wildlife Park and, naturally, ghosts.

Recorded on one of the hottest days in England’s history, the Loremen face drought, a flaming coach, and the dusty vengeance of bad old Lady Tanfield. (And Lord Tanfield is hardly better.)

The Bois squeeze a bit of genuine history into this episode. Meanwhile, Alasdair gets on his hobby horse about the enclosure of public lands, and James launches into a bizarre rant about colanders.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
