SotW: The Witch of Wookey
today we go in Somerset, UK, to meet a local, very famous legend...
THE WITCH OF WOOKEY
Deep in the dark caverns of Wookey Hole dwelt at one time the Witch of Wookey - and dwells there still, if the gossips are to be trusted, though she, her pots and pans and horrid "familiars" (as her goat) are all turned to stone.
A chagrined and disappointed woman, she used her merciless arts to blight girls' lives and keep them from the joys denied to herself. But she reckoned without a certain Holy Clerk of Glastonbury! With his Good Book he exorcised the Witch, and turned her to stone; he then cleansed from all evil the dreadful cavern.
Make sure to be back tomorrow for a new witch and have some true pulp scares everyone :)
