"Good Friday 1612. High on a hill in a wild and lawless part of Pendle in Lancashire, a secret meeting is held at Malkin Tower. By the end of the year, most of those present have been sentenced to death at Lancaster Castle, hanged for the crime of witchcraft. 400 years later and the story of the Pendle Witches has become the most famous witch hunt in British history. The Dukes, Lancaster presents Richard Shannon's startling retelling to commemorate this 400th anniversary."
