Thetford Warren Lodge was built around the 1400s a few miles west of Thetford – probably at the bequest of the prior of Our Lady’s Priory who had Royal approval to hunt small game and was keen to protect his livelihood by constructing a defensive lodge which could repel poachers.

This week our winsome weirdoes wonder about warrens and in particular the Monty Python-esque phantom rabbit of Thetford Warren Lodge which also boasts a gibbering ghoul. Oh, and Siofra gets in a grump. We also have two spooky tales from listener James Coates.
