Workmen make 'bewitching' discovery

Water engineers have unearthed what could prove to be one of the most infamous sites in England's history of witches and warlocks. United Utilities' workers were "stunned" to discover a 17th century witch's-style cottage, with a mummified cat sealed into the walls, during a routine construction project in Pendle, Lancashire. The "spellbinding" find occurred near Lower Black Moss reservoir in the village of Barley, which nestles in the shadow of Pendle Hill - the UK's premier witching hotspot. Speculation is already rife among local historians that the building could be the lost Malkin Tower - the site of a notorious meeting of the Pendle witches on Good Friday, 1612. http://news.uk.msn.com/uk/workmen-make-bewitching-discovery-36
