The babes in the wood

The story behind one of the most popular ballads of the English-speaking world had its origins in Wayland Wood near Watton. It told of a wicked uncle, who having promised to raise his dying sister’s children, arranged for their murder in the wood. But one of the two ruffians he’d hired to do the deed couldn’t bring himself to kill the children. After a bitter fight between the two men, the children were left to wander the forest.
