Sussex Folk Tales (Paperback)Michael O'Leary (author)
Paperback 192 Pages / Published: 01/07/2013
- In stock online
With screaming demons in Wealdon copses and dragons lurking in bottomless ponds, the folk tales of Sussex truly represent the diversity of the area. Meet knuckers and willocks, mawkins and marsh monsters, the Piltdown Man, Lord Moon of Amberley Swamp and the princess of the Mixon Hole. There is also something terrible crawling to Crawley from Gatwick, which develops a degraded appetite in a bin ... From ghosts and madmen to witches and wise women, Michael O'Leary reveals many of the hidden horrors of Sussex - horrors that can be found in the most beautiful places, or that lurk beneath the seemingly mundane. Amid these dark tales are stories of humour and silliness, of love, lust and passion.
