Further revelations from the near-mythical Scarfolk, the legendary town stuck in the beige, folk horror universe of the 1970s. Elucidating the cryptic treasures of the previous Discovering Scarfolk, this annual is a chillingly hilarious artefact designed to brainwash young minds and preserve the authoritarian tenor of the community. Horrifyingly addictive.
A SCARFOLK SANCTIONED BOOK. AUTHORISED EDITION, AS SEEN ON THE RADIO
The Scarfolk Annual is the facsimile of a book discovered in a charity shop in the north west of England in August 2018. The shop, and indeed town, do not wish to be identified as they are keen to "discourage the 'occult-totalitarian tourism' that as afflicted other areas of Britain" as people hunt for further socio-archaeological traces of the mysterious, missing town of Scarfolk - Britain's own Brutalist Atlantis.
Apart from the archive of Scarfolk materials which was sent anonymously to the late Dr Ben Motte and formed the basis of the book Discovering Scarfolk, this children's annual is, to date, the only complete artefact from Scarfolk ever to be unearthed 'in the wild'.
It's clear The Scarfolk Annual was not written to entertain children at Christmastime; its purpose was to indoctrinate young minds; in fact, one might go as far as to say destroy young minds, to an end that has been lost to us.

'Scarfolk is a quaint town in the north west of England. At first glance it appears perfectly ordinary. Neighbours chat to each other over hedges while children play in the quiet, suburban streets. Yet this provincial place has received a lot of media attention over the past five years. Rumours have surfaced claiming that the town has not progressed since 1979' - It's Nice That
