Witches Cottage discovered in Pendle

Buried ‘witch’s cottage’ discovered in Pendle, Lancashire

Engineers have said they were “stunned” to unearth a 17th Century cottage, complete with a mummified cat, during a construction project in Lancashire.

The mummified cat found could indicate it’s a non-witches house though
Ironically, non-witches would often brick a living cat into their walls during construction, believing that when the cat died in those walls, its spirit would attach itself to the home and protect it.
