Tales of witchcraft and spells in Burwell

SPOOKY tales of a legendary Burwell witch were whispered during a Hallowe'en walk to unveil a historical plaque.

Organised by Burwell History Society, walkers met at an area on the edge of the village called Judy's Hole – a former clay pit which was dug to provide clay to shore up the walls of the Lodes.

Judy's Hole was named after local woman Judy Finch, who lived in the village and was believed to be a witch.

According to local folklore, she lived in the pit and may have drowned there.

At the site, members of the group officially unveiled the society's seventh historical plaque.

Visitors were then treated to numerous spooky tales from Burwell's past, together with some historical facts to get them into the spirit of Hallowe'en.
