Witches set world record for largest gathering
London: A total of 482 people wearing black pointed hats, black cloaks and carrying a broom have set a new world record for the biggest group of people dressed as witches in one place.
The record was set on the 400th anniversary of the Pendle witch trials in Lancashire, the Daily Mail reported.
The group trekked to Gallows Hill where 10 people were hanged in 1612 after being found guilty of causing death or harm by witchcraft.
A five-mile "Pendle Witch Walk" was held to mark the anniversary of the witch trials and also to raise GBP 50,000 for the Pendleside Hospice in Burnley.
The walk began in the village of Barley, known as the epicentre of "witch country".
At the end of the walk, the record-breakers were treated to a live music festival.
