'The Odstock Curse'

The true Story of a deadly curse.

Locking this church door brought death! Terrifying events haunted the village of Odstock near Salisbury for almost 200 years.

A true story of heroism, injustice, intolerance, retribution and reconciliation (more or less in that order) from my home town. Several people met violent and unnecessary deaths, before the trauma was finally laid to rest in the 1990’s. This is the story of what lies behind a seemingly quiet, sleepy, picture postcard, village. Based on my own research and contemporary accounts.
