Revisiting The Pendle Curse

Great post Shey & Catherine. I had heard of the Pendle Witches before so looks like a good read! (probably need to keep the lights on for a couple of days after though)

My novel – The Pendle Curse – has some of its roots in a true story. In August 1612, ten men and women were convicted, in Lancaster, England, of crimes related to witchcraft and subsequently hanged on Gallows Hill. They became known to history as the Pendle Witches.

Needless to say, as mine is a horror novel, my witches are a pretty evil bunch –

powerful too. But back in fifteenth century Yorkshire, not all that far from Pendle, lived a witch of a very different sort.

In 1488, some say in a cave near the Petrifying Well, a young girl gave birth to an illegitimate daughter: one who would be called Ursula Sontheil but whom history would remember as Mother Shipton.

Mother Shipton was not exactly England’s answer to Nostradamus, but she developed a reputation for her prophecies.

  1. Good to see more Russian hats on those hamsters!
    I have been to that cave, and found it tacky and touristy. Knaresborough, on the other hand, is a very pleasant place to visit.
    Good luck with the book!
    Best wishes, Pete.
