History will be brought to life for witches project

AN enthusiastic teacher is bringing history to life for schoolkids by carrying out research on the Renfrewshire Witch Hunt of 1697.

Mystery and intrigue has long surrounded the slaying of the so-called witches more than three centuries ago.

The four women and three men were strangled at the stake on the Gallow Green, just off Castle Street, in the West End of Paisley, and then had their bodies burned on a blazing bonfire.

Afterwards, their charred remains were buried at Maxwellton Cross at a site marked by a horseshoe and a circle of cobbled stones.
