I thought it would be interesting to list the witch trial memorials around the UK. I will add to this as I find them, currently trying to find any in Wales. If you know of any let me know! :)

 

Scotland

 

Paisley - memorial of trial of the Paisley witch in 1697, bronze plaque

 

Crook of Devon - Witches maze made of beech trees at Tullibole Castle, dedicated to the 11 victims of the 1662 witch trials

 

Dunning - Maggie Wall's memorial, in the former grounds of Duncrub Castle. Stone memorial for a woman burned as a witch in 1657

 

 

England

 

Essex - Colchester Castle park houses a memorial to the witches burnt throughout the 16th and 17th centuries

 

Essex Manningtree - Planned memorial, currently funding

 

Pendle - In Roughlee, a statue of Alice Nutter stands in the centre of the village. Burned in the 1612 Pendle witch trials

 

Exeter - Mural and plaque dedicated to witches from 1682 onwards.

I would love to do a trip to see all of these sites and I am sure there are lots more. I would leave flowers and a prayer for peace for them.
