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 cottage was discovered near Lower Black Moss reservoir in the village of Barley, in the shadow of Pendle Hill.
Historians are now speculating that the well-preserved cottage could have belonged to one of the Pendle witches.
