SUFFOLK - a peaceful, rural county with big skies, rolling fi elds, unspoilt beaches, quaint towns and villages. But all is not as quiet as it seems. Could that be the eerie clanking of gibbet chains at the crossroads? Did you see a desolate face at an upper window or a spectral white form lurking in the hedgerow? Cats are not always lucky - and beware a north Suffolk Broad in the still, small hours of Midsummer Night . . .Kirsty Hartsiotis and Cherry Wilkinson retell, with spine-chilling freshness, thirty fabulous ghost tales from all corners of this beguiling county. So pull up a chair, stoke the fire and prepare to see its gentle landscape in a new light.

Gloucestershire’s stories go back to the days of Sabrina, spirit of the Severn, and the Nine Hags of Gloucester. Tales tell of sky-ships over Bristol, the silk-caped wraith of Dover’s Hill, snow foresters on the Cotswolds, and Cirencester’s dark-age drama of snake and nipple. They uncover the tragic secrets of Berkeley Castle and the Gaunts’ Chapel, a lonely ghost haunting an ancient inn, and twenty-first-century beasts in the Forest of Dean. From the intrigue and romance of town and abbey to the faery magic of the wild, here are thirty of the county’s most enchanting tales, brought imaginatively to life by a dynamic local storyteller.Anthony Nanson is a Stroud-based storyteller. He has performed widely in Britain and abroad and is a founding member of Fire Springs storytelling company. He is the author of Storytelling and Ecology, Exotic Excursions and Words of Re-enchantment, and teaches creative writing at Bath Spa University. A love of nature and the spirit of place informs all his work.

Horses and other equine figures have for centuries been a significant part of British folklore. Their origins remain elusive and their symbolism is swathed in mysticism, but the relationship - spiritual or practical - between horse and human is one of life's strongest bonds. In this book, the role of horses - as sacred emblems and in ancient lore, as primitive chalk etchings on hillsides and in Christian symbolism and in superstitions and as magical beings - in myth and legend is given lively and thorough consideration. A must for all equine lovers and those who want to know more about the lore of the horse in history.
