You need to post up if you are attending.
• You should take Gel/Hand sanitiser and use regularly.
• No sharing of food or drink
• Keep social distance
• Any sign of COVID symptoms from an attendee or a member of their household you should not join the meet.
Please do not attend if you have symptoms

Please do not attend if you have a posative test
• Follow government guidance on travel
• Meet leader – Welcome briefing to be held with focus on COVID/social distancing.


We will of course be keeping a close eye on any changes and government announcements but the walk, should be going ahead.

This morning, I received a direct message from a paranormal investigator. (Honestly)

I'm not sure if you're already well aware of this stuff (apologies if you are) but there is a pretty well documented case of witchcraft around Fewston (fuystone) written by the poet Edward Fairfax. He lived at Newhall which was in the bottom of the Washburn Valley where the Fewston Reservoir currently sits. He wrote a book entitled "DAEMONOLOGIA: & DISCOURSE ON WITCHCRAFT" which gives details of how his family were tormented by six witches over the course of 1621-1622 whilst living at Newhall.

This gives interesting accounts of the visions his daughters claimed to have seen including various horrifying old hags who would encourage them to commit suicide, beasts attempting to take their souls and even an appearance from the devil himself. There's also a nice description of a witches feast that took place in Timble Gill (which is also supposedly the site of a murder long ago, the victim of which was reportedly haunting the spot for many years until a local clergyman came and cleansed the area). (If you're after a way to spice things up on Saturday with some local folklore.)

Below are a few examples from the book - JA - see you all later :twisted:

"Helen Fairfax falls into a 'trance' where she lays 'as though dead' for several hours. During this time, she imagined she had been in Leeds, hearing sermon"

"Helen Fairfax loses the ability to move based on touch of a phantom hand on her bare legs and the touch of phantom fingertips on her eyelids"

"The devil transforms from a "beast with many horns," to a calf, to a little dog. As a dog, he demands Helen Fairfax open her mouth so he could enter and possess her. "

"Margaret Thorpe, Peg Wait, and Jennit Dibble are searched as witches; Helen Fairfax is called in to identify Thorpe as the woman with a spot on her face who had tormented her. Helen identified Wait and Dibble (by name) as witches"

Unfortunately, my self isolating son is not well today so I am going to have to isolate until swab test results come back. Have a ghoulish time. X
