Meg Shelton (died 1705) known as the "Fylde Hag" was an English woman accused of witchcraft. Her grave can be seen at St. Anne's Church in Woodplumpton, now part of the City of Preston district of Lancashire.
There are many legends about her. Supposedly, she had the ability to change shape, and she was buried head down with a boulder over her grave after she kept rising from the grave.
