Come and learn about some of the grisly myths, tales and true stories of Suffolk and Stowmarket. Murder most foul, Devil Hounds and unusual events. Starting at the John Peel Centre, the gruesome crew of the Stowmarket Local History Group will talk and then take you on a guided walk, highlighting some known and not so well-known facts about the town.
