Scorch (Chessington World of Adventures)

Middlewich (Cheshire)
OS Map Ref. SJ 704663

    There is a chapel in the church of Middlewich which is dedicated to the Venables family. Thomas Venables once killed a voracious dragon which lived in the swamps of Bache Pool (or Dragon's Pool, or Dragon's Lake) at Moston. He did this by shooting it in the eye with an arrow, then attacking it with other weapons, as it was about to eat a child, finally finishing it off with his sword. A lane was named Dragon's Lane to commemorate the event.
