Etymology Edit

Lambton wormillustration

The Lambton Worm is a famous wyrm in English folklore.

The story goes that, in the middle ages, a member of the Lambton family, John Lambton, caught an eel-like monster from the River Wear and threw it down a well, despite warnings of its nature. There it grew into a monsterous size.

When John went on the crusades, the serpent escaped and started devouring all that came near it. Many died trying to vanquish it - and it could simply reattach parts of itself that were sliced off.

When John returned, he sought to slay the beast, and correct his mistake. He sought the advice of a witch, who told him to don spiked armour. John encountered the worm, which tried to constrict him, but impaled itself on the spiked armour, finally killing it.
