Toddington, A Memory - a Memory of Toddington.

Local legend says that a witch is imprisoned within the mound beside the church at Toddington, and there was a local tradition that on Shrove Tuesday ('Pancake Day'), the day before Ash Wednesday, if we put our ears to the ground on the mound we could hear the witches frying
their pancakes. I was a child in the 1940s and always visited my gran on Pancake Day, she lived opposite the mound. If you want more details you can contact me on email: maureenkerr@AOL.com
