About

This short walk on the Stour Estuary between Essex and Suffolk is inspired by the 17th century East Anglian witch trials. During this dark period of English history, around 300 people were tried for witchcraft and close to 100 executed as ‘witches’.

The walk was produced in collaboration with the artist susan pui san lok and is part of a project called A COVEN A GROVE A STAND, a body of work commissioned by Firstsite as part of New Geographies.

​​​​​​The ​Walking with Witches trail is produced by Discovering Britain has been created by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) to help people learn more about the geographical stories behind Britain’s rich and varied landscapes.
