The wicker witches of Little Todginton

Prodigious amounts of willow trees grew on the banks of the River Neeple close to Little Todginton and the local people were smugly renowned for their basketry and skill at wickerwork.

Upon hearing of a coven of witches causing mayhem around the countryside they swiftly erected wicker effigies of the wiccan trio confident that this would deter them from hexing their homes by some form of sympathetic magic.

They were wrong of course and Little Todginton has since become a deserted ruin, the River Neeple however is now famous for it’s rare breed of newts that appear to have surprised looks on their faces.
