Join Nick and Mary, the 17th Century Gaolers of the old Guildhall, for an enlightening lantern walk around the medieval village of Lavenham, deep in the heart of the Suffolk Countryside.
The year is 1645 and Lavenham is in Crisis. The Civil War is in full swing, the Witchfinder General is on his hunt for Witches and the destitute weavers are rioting. However, for our two horrible Gaolers life could not be better! The prison is full and there is money to be made!
Join Nick and Mary on their light-hearted look at some of the ‘Horrible History of Lavenham’. Hear tales of local folklore and traditions, poor sanitation and disease, witchcraft and riots, murder and executions, plus a few ghosts for good measure. This is the history of Lavenham with all the nice bits taken out!
Our tour ends at the Cock Inn, Nick and Mary’s favourite watering hole, where we join them for a two-course supper before we head home (if they let us out).
