LANCASTER 09A - Witches 400: Tercet 10 James Device
Waymark 10 of The Lancashire Witches Walk at Lancaster Castle, 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 final waymark pointing to the castle where they were "tried" without counsel, is dedicated to James Device.
Each waymark is inscribed with one tercet of The Lancashire Witches poem by Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy.
"away from Castle, Jury, Judge,.huge crowd, rough rope, short drop, no grave;.only future tourists who might grieve."
