S3E106 – The Witches of Wallsend

The Witches of Wallsend, North Tyneside

Seaton Delaval Hall was once home to Sir Francis Blake Delaval – the man who puts the “pranks” in “I am sick of this guy’s terrible pranks”. But, although living with Sir Francis must have been a nightmare, it doesn’t compare to the gruesome tale he told of the Wallsend Witches.

At the stroke of midnight, the Loreboys meet a gaggle of hags in the old church. We learn why Hadrian’s Wall is so jumpable, and how to spot Jeremy Beadle in disguise.

Meanwhile, James Shakeshaft’s run of bad luck… continues.


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
