There be Dragons in Norfolk!


Recommended Posts

Clever man, patient one too.  Impressive looking piece of work.

 

Talking of dragons in Norfolk, years ago there was a film, I think starring Dana Andrews and I think called 'Night of the Dragon'.  My late brother-in-law, a Norfolk man through and through said that, that sort of thing in Norfolk was called a 'Windiego', my spelling is suspect here, but have any of you local types heard of this. cheers

Hi Keith,

The film you mentioned was called "Night of the Demon" staring Dana Andrews, a 1957 budget but classic film that was based on the casting of the runes by a satanic cult. I remember the demon that chases the runes victim as their time runs out. It looked like a steam driven dragon chasing its victim down a tree lined road.

Sadly I have not heard of the term 'Windiego'

Regards

Alan

Hi Alan,

 

"It looked like a steam driven dragon chasing its victim down a tree lined road." :D

 

And from memory it sounded like someone had forgotten to oil it. :)
