To be lost and alone, in a dark wood at night, must be a terrifying experience. Back in the 16th century, woods were much larger than today and getting lost in the dense undergrowth was easy. You may have heard the well-known tale of the 'babes in the wood'. It is a sad tale of two abandoned children. The tale is set in Wayland Wood in Norfolk and nearby Griston Hall was once home to a very wicked uncle.
