So Much For Folklore
Parts of Saint Mary’s Church in Painswick, Gloucestershire, date back to the fourteenth century. The churchyard contains a fine collection of yew trees. Local folklore suggests that there will never be more than 99 trees in the churchyard, and if a 100th appears, the devil will puck it out. Current estimates suggest that there are between 100 and 103. So much for folklore.
