Ancient Anti-Witchcraft Potion Found at Old Northamptonshire Pub in England

A Victorian bottle thought to have been used to ward off evil spells has been found at the birthplace of a “witch”. Angeline Tubbs, known as the Witch of Saratoga, was born at the former Star and Garter Inn, in Watford village, Northamptonshire, in about 1761.
