Do you believe in witches? For the good people of Long Compton, it?s part of a longstanding tradition ? one that, as recently as 1875, cost a woman named Ann Tennant her life.
England's Rollright Stones, located on the borders of Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, are among the oldest and most mystic monuments in Britain and have captured people's imaginations for thousands of years.
