The Halloween Horrors of Old Mill Lane: Episode 1 - The Iron Spider of Old Mill Lane

E'In 1689, a young woman named Marguerite suspects the volatile proprietor of an old mill where she works to be abducting and torturing local girls. As she begins to discover more, the mystery is revealed to be far more sinister than she could have ever imagined and a confrontation with the fabled 'Iron Spider' is all that can unearth the truth.' From the team behind the chart-topping horror storytelling podcast The Other Stories comes an ambitious new audio anthology starring the voice of British horror icon Emily Booth, alongside a cast of Hawk & Cleaver regulars. To celebrate Halloween, The Midnight Macabre Podcast - hosted by Laura Lambton (Emily Booth) - presents a week of daily live broadcasts from Old Mill Lane in Bramshire, a location with a reputation for being one of the most haunted places in Britain. Each night, Laura introduces a story reconstructed from the gruesome past of the mill, in an effort to unpick the mysteries of its dark history, culminating in a grand finale as Halloween arrives.
