This sculpture was created to commemorate the 400th anniversary of one of the most infamous witch trials of the 17th century - that of the Pendle witches. These women lived in the early 1600's at a time of religious persecution and superstition.

Fabricated from brass and corten steel, it depicts Alice Nutter of Roughlee who was unusual among the accused as she was the wealthy widow of a farmer. She kept silent throughout her trial except to enter a plea of not guilty to the murder of Henry Mitton by witchcraft.

The local Borough & Parish Council of Roughlee led a scheme to commission the erection of a sculpture of ‘Alice’. It depicts her shackled and on her way to trial.
