Statue of Alice Nutter, one of the Lancashire Witches - @quirkytraveller- #webstagram

The gravestone of 'Nutter' in the Newchurch church graveyard. It is believed to be the burial place of Alice Nutter who was a Pendle Witch in the 1500. She was put on trial and hung for being a witch. There are two main reasons why Alice Nutter can not be buried here. 1. witches were often buried at cross roads 2. the first date on the grave starts '16' which means that headstone was placed there many years after Alice had died. but its still a nice idea.
