Sarah's Legend
One story says that the grave of Sarah Wrench, an alleged witch, was covered with a metal cage by the locals to keep her from returning from the dead. The truth is more likely that the cage was put in place to protect Sarah's body from grave robbers. The grave and cage still remain at the rear of the church.
