Possible witch’s cauldron. This small iron crock, of the type commonly used in Dartmoor cottages, was given to the folklorist Miss Theo Brown by William Webb of Postbridge who died in 1967. He kept pitch in it for cattle with broken horns. It had belonged to his grandmother, Mrs Elizabeth Webb, the famous ‘White Witch of Dartmoor’ who died in 1913, aged about 73. She was a powerful charmer: she could arrest bleeding at a distance without needed to see the patient. She grew herbs in her garden and used reeds from the marsh to cure warts. To cure snake bites she would kill an adder, chop it up finely and cook it. When cool she would skim off the scum and make the patient drink it.
