About this product
- DescriptionIllustrated with more than 60 archive images, this collection of true tales from across the Ribble Valley provides a fascinating record of crime and punishment over the centuries. With detailed sections on each of the towns of the Ribble Valley, beginning with the paraid prisoner of Barldswick and passing through a gripping alphabet of place names that ends within the haunted ruins of Whalley Abbey, where the execution of a martyred monk was staged, the book catalogues a chilling range of misdeeds. From terrifying tales of the dark magic of the Pendle Witches, to newspaper reports of petty theft and drunkenness, almost every kind of unlawful activity is included here. Considering the unique circumstances behind each offence, as well as the inevitable consequence of punishment, this book will horrify and captivate anyone interested in the criminal history of the area.
- Author BiographyJacqueline Davitt is an enthusiastic local historian and the author of Ghosts and Witches of Pendle and the Ribble Valley (2006), a meticulously researched study of Lancashire folklore and some of the most controversial trials in the history of the county.
