County Durham has a long history and a fascinating folklore. These are some tales of drama and enchantment drawn from that rich treasury. Who was the lovestruck, tragic girl who penned the original song Bonny Bobby Shafto? What made the poor and rejected John Duck turn back to Durham, where he made a fortune and became a celebrated mayor of the city? Why was the rector of Sedgefield's body pickled and kept in the living room for a fortnight after he died?
