Pendle ‘witches’ cottage’ - historian’s Malkin Tower theory: AUDIO

RESPECTED local historian Roger Frost, who writes a weekly column in the Burnley Express, talks to reporter Dominic Collis about the amazing find of an abandoned cottage at the foot of Pendle Hill.

The former teacher, who guides tours of Pendle Witch country, is publishing a book on the Pendle Witches early next year and gives his own, fascinating insight into the discovery by United Utilities workers in Barley.

They found an abandoned cottage, dating from the 1600s, which had a mummified cat entombed in its wall.
