About the event

'The Devil's county - The Satanic folklore of Shropshire.

The storm that hit Shrewsbury in January 1553 was biblical. The rain lashed down and thunder ripped through the sky and on this night, if we are to believe the Chapbook of St Alkmund’s church- The Devil came to Shropshire.

This wasn’t the first time his cloven feet trod on Shropshire soil. Indeed, if we turn to the folklore of the area, we can see that he has quite the proclivity for the region. Littered across the landscape tales of satan,walking unfettered among the population and influencing them. Join Amy as she charts these stories, and discusses Shropshire's relationship with the archfiend himself. 

Amy Boucher is a writer and folklorist, who focuses on her native Shropshire. Her emphasis is primarily on the interplay between folklore, history and the paranormal, and perceptions of the past through the lens of folk beliefs. She is a writer for Haunted magazine and Ghostmag, has recently written an audio drama about Shropshire's satanic folklore, and shares Shropshire's folklore via her blog -
