Thread Name: Folklore: Pendle Witches. Cottage found?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Pendle Witches. Cottage found?
The Pendle witch trials were in 1612. The cottage looks as though it went out of use about 1900. What evidence is there, apart from it being somewhere in the area, to associate it with those unfortunate women three hundred years before?

Mummified cats are quite common, though perhaps more usually found in the roofspace or in chimneys.
