It sounds really interesting! Great post.

Fond of England

Three of the ten unusual museums listed by tripadvisor, are found in England: the British Lawnmover Museum in Merseyside, the Cumberland Pencil Museum in Keswick, and one that sounds quite intriguing – the Museum of Witchcraftin Cornwall.

On the Witchcraft Museum website you will find an image carousel of objects that are available in the museum. There’s a guided tour of a selection of artefacts.

This was a virtual sequel to my fairy tales.

Cecil Williamson, the museum founder provides much of the text presenting history and references of the collection. Some of them are already familiar to me like spells, charms and curses, divination, mandrake root (which I really thought existed only in the pages of the HP series), runes, Madam de la Cour, and tea leaves; all thanks to Harry Potter. I had to google scrying though.

You probably wouldn’t want to try the mirror
