as promised: my extremely long and rambly thread on black shuck, the east anglian demon dog! if you think you're gonna read it all then good fuckin luck lmao, no actually that'd be amazing, i'm not the best writer but i had fun reading up about this.
it's folklore, so general CWs for evil dogs, death, religion and the like.
this is gonna be a lot of posts, so muting the word "shuck" will remove it from your timeline

Blythburgh is a small village in Suffolk on the River Blyth, only a few miles from the sea. Latitude, a festival for pricks, takes place part in the parish. It was the site of the mediaeval Blythburgh Priory, where 7th-century remains have been found and whose ruin annoyingly isn’t open to the public. Fun fact – JFK’s oldest brother Joseph P died in an aircraft explosion a mile away! Blythburgh Church is known as the Cathedral of the Marshes, because it’s big and near marshes.
