LANCASTER 04A - Witches 400: Tercet 9 Anne Whittle
Waymark 9 of The Lancashire Witches Walk at the Ashton Memorial in Williamson Park, Lancaster, Lancashire.
The 51 mile walk, created to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Lancashire Witches trial and hangings in 1612, runs between Barrowford and Lancaster Castle.
Ten cast iron waymarkers created by Stephen Raw have been positioned along the route with each waymarker commemorating one of the 10 "witches" hung on Gallows Hill in Lancaster. This waymark in Williamson Park points towards Lancaster Castle where they were "tried" without counsel, and is dedicated to Anne Whittle.
Each waymark is inscribed with one tercet of The Lancashire Witches poem by Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy.
"Grim skies, the grey remorse of rain;.sunset’s crimson shame; four seasons,.centuries, turning, in Lancashire,"
