Witches sink construction plans in England
The BBC has the story, but does it have the truth?:
Increased traffic? A likely story. That ancient curse had nothing to do with it. (OK, I made up the part about the curse. But if there were witches killed there, they probably did curse the site like in the Vincent Price classic The Haunted Palace.)
Plans to build luxury houses on what is believed to be the site of an ancient witches' ducking pool have been halted.
Gower Homes wanted to build 22 houses off Gerald Street in Wrexham. However, local people had campaigned against the plan, claiming traffic would increase and the historic site would be lost forever.
