03 - Merchant's House

We learn where the ducking stool used to be in Harleston although the town was once fined for not having one! Mark Kenyon then explains how the Merchant's House before you is not Georgian but contains within it a medieval building that could conceivably have been the Harleston guildhall. We also learn that inside on one of the bressemer beams is a plethora of superstitious carvings designed to stop evil coming down the chimney!
