Lancashire Witches Walk - Tercet 6
Lancashire Witches Walk - Tercet 6
The Lancashire Witches Walk runs between Barrowford and Lancaster Castle, and was created to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Lancashire Witches trial and hangings in 1612. Ten cast iron waymarkers created by Stephen Raw have been installed along the route. Each waymarker commemorates one of the "witches" (Elizabeth Device in this case), and is inscribed with one tercet of The Lancashire Witches poem by Carol Ann Duffy. See SD7152 : Tercet marker, Slaidburn and SD5764 : Lancashire Witches Walk - Tercet 7.
