You can discover some ghostly goings-on and spooky stories during a guided walk around St Neots next month.
Join St Neots Museum’ curator, Liz Davies, for a 90-minute walk through the town centre and find out more about the history of witchcraft in St Neots.
Liz will talk about local woman Annie Izzard (pictured) during the three scheduled walks, which take place on October 14/21/28 and start at 7.30pm.
“When I first started work at the museum in 2001 I was told by a local resident that this old photograph showed Annie Izzard from Great Paxton, who had been accused of witchcraft in 1808. However Annie had actually died in 1834 before the invention of the camera! This story demonstrates the power of the belief in witchcraft and in the legend of Annie, which will feature in the new ghost walk.”
Walks, which cost £5, will go ahead whatever the weather and booking is essential.
