1st June 2011 – ‘North Country Folk Lore’

Peter Watson came today to give a fascinating insight into the myth and superstition of the past.  He showed us examples of ‘Witch bottles’ used in old times to keep witches at bay,  gave us an idea of some of the ‘remedies’ used by north country folk to cure illness and deformity and told of the love potions sold to ensure true love!
