Maggie Wall witch memorial

"Maggie Wall burnt here
1657
as a witch"
...declare the scrawling letters painted on bare stone. In the 17th century, the village of Dunning was a hotspot, literally, for witch and warlock trials and executions. This lonely stone monument stands by the road out of the village to the west. Little is known about the burning of Maggie Wall - including whether it even happened - but the site has a distinctly macabre atmosphere nevertheless, not helped by the lopsidedness of the monument or the almost childish writing.
