After an intensive week-and-a-bit proofing and indexing the forthcoming new edition of ‘Haunted Wales’ from the History Press – plus a well-earned short break in Snowdonia immediately – I can at last devote my attention to Uncanny UK again.
So, after a much longer delay than intended, I have just uploaded the second article on the durable motif in British folklore of the indelible bloodstain. I’ve already described one of best-known of such phenomena, the Bloody Footstep of Smithills Hall. This time I highlight several other examples of the records of dark deeds that just won’t wash off, including a bloody handprint and a stain that remained damp for three centuries.
