‘Macabre Church Lore’ for the Churches Conservation Trust

This afternoon I delivered a virtual talk for the Churches Conservation Trust on the subject of ‘Macabre Church Lore’ (you can listen to the talk here). The talk explored the more sinister side of folklore connected with England’s churches and churchyards, from gruesome revenants to guardian black dogs and the machinations of necromancers. The talk was the most popular ever broadcast by the CCT, with over 12,500 people signing up to watch it either live or subsequent to broadcast.
