There's witchcraft, tormented spirits, curses, the well of evil and even a bit of good old-fashioned Wicker Man style paganism in this episode of watery folklore.

These tales concern the folklore of wells, a source of water for centuries which could be used for good and bad magic.

In some cases, a Pagan tradition could be used to summon rain in times of drought. But in other cases, a lost soul appears to be damned inside and calls for help.

Join author Mark Rees (Ghosts of Wales) as he explores the weird wells of Wales on the Ghosts and Folklore of Wales podcast... if you dare!
