The Witches and the Grinnygog is a story of pre-Christian traditions, considered in the middle ages to be witchcraft, surviving into the modern world, and deals with various themes related to English folklore, ghosts and time slips.
When an ancient English church is moved to a new site, one stone – a strange statue, the Grinnygog – is found to be missing. It is accidentally found by a woman who, not realizing its significance, gives it to her elderly father as a pseudo garden gnome. Shortly thereafter, three eccentric old women (who seem to be looking for something lost or hidden many years before) arrive in the town.
