Witches galore.

Witches galore. 

A life-size witch model / manikin photographed outside the "Witches Galore" souvenir & gift shop in the village of Newchurch-in-Pendle, Lancashire, in the North-West of England. This village and the surrounding areas were the setting for Britain's most famous (or "infamous") witch trials, The Pendle Witches, in 1612 which resulted in the hanging of ten people at Lancaster. Most of the so-called "evidence" was based on the testimony of a 9-year-old child, Jennet Device, whose mother, brother and grandmother were among the victims. In those days, just to be accused of witchcraft usually meant you were automatically considered guilty unless you could prove (without any legal help) otherwise.
