If you are planning on attending please let me know, Any sign of covid symptoms please stay at home.

Dead Mans - Hill.

I took Lukasz, for a walk over here last winter, changed the venue and told him the tale below, to which he replied "will i make it home John ?" :twisted: .

Three drovers and a dog came down from Scotland with a herd of cattle bound for Bradford market. They were hoping to sell some Highland cattle that had been seized by the English.

At the Lodge, on the slopes of what would soon be known as Dead Man’s Hill, they stayed within an inn kept by a woman and her daughter.

A few days later they returned with the price of the cattle in their pockets and stayed the night. Unfortunately this time they stayed more than the night.

After getting the drovers drunk the two women murdered the men as they slept. They cut off their heads and buried the bodies and heads in two different places on the hill. They had reckoned without the dog, however.

No matter how they tried they couldn’t catch or scare away the faithful sheepdog. Of course, sooner or later some travellers making for Lodge saw the dog digging and went to have a closer look. Out of the ground came one head, then a second and then a third.

There are two versions of the endgame for the women :

In the first the two women were taken to Pateley Bridge, tried and hung.

In the second the two were found to be witches, They stand as two weathered stones, known as Jenny Twig and her Daughter Tib, overlooking Nidderdale near Lofthouse.
