S3E95 – The Pedlar of Swaffham

The Pedlar of Swaffham

James delivers a triptych of tales, originating in the land of dreams. Chief among them is the Pedlar of Swaffham – the story of a country bumpkin who goes to That London and stands on a bridge. For ages. Are the locals friendly? What do you reckon, geeza?

This episode is brought to by those titans of the fruit industry, Big Pear. (This will make more sense after you’ve listened.)


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
