Tales from ‘Darkest’ Lincolnshire.
March 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Heroic Tales and Dark Deeds from Lincolnshire and Beyond – a series of talks.
Join Adrian Gray for the first in this series of online talks.
A selection of entertaining legends and tales from Lincolnshire history and folklore, mostly drawing on lively re-tellings of stories from the ‘dark days’ of long ago. We explore the mysterious death of a Viking king in Gainsborough and its link to the story of King Canute and the waves; then we investigate the murder of the vicar of Market Rasen in 1602 and the incredible subsequent life of his murderer; then for a little light relief we delve into the folk story about the devil and Dorrington church; and finally we take a more historical look at one of the ‘lost worlds’ of Lincolnshire by exploring the ‘dark arts’ of the decoy men, who harvested wildfowl with skills now long lost.
Date: Tuesday 30th March 2021
Time: 7pm – the talk will last approx. 1 hr and will be followed by 30 minutes Q & A .
