Caught by the River

Pendle, 1612

14th October 2012

Curated by Rob St John and David Chatton Barker, and limited to 200 copies, the tapes are packaged in a screen printed heritage library buckram box which houses information and ephemera related to the trials: a map, photographs, an essay by the curators, and a dried nettle in glassvine envelope as well as a download code.

‘Pendle, 1612’ is the first release through the new Lancashire Folk Tapes imprint, following the continuing Devon Folklore series of limited edition tape releases exploring British folklore.

This release is a commemoration and remembrance to the Pendle Witch trials – a reminder of the rich, dark and entangled histories that are increasingly paved over and forgotten by contemporary celebrations.
