This vintage book contains a comprehensive encyclopedia of the folk-lore of Lancashire. The north of England has enjoyed a particularly rich history of folk-lore, having been influenced by the cultures of the Celts, Angles, Teutonic people, Scandinavians, the Normans, and more. This volume is highly recommended for those with an interest in English Folklore, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: “Superstitious Beliefs and Practices”, “Charms and Spells”, “The Devil, Demons, &c”, “Divination”, “Miscellaneous”, “Miracles”, “Omens and Predictions”, “Superstitions, General and Miscellaneous”, “Witches and Witchcraft”, “Local Customs and Usages at Various Seasons”, “Eating and Drinking Customs”, et cetera. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction. This book was first published in 1867.

Journey through Lancashire, England, to visit 155 places where strange history meets creepy modern times. Arranged alphabetically by town and place, the stories tell of ghosts, witches, fairies, dragons, and altercations with the Devil (who is not as clever as he thinks!). Legends connected to ancient monuments, holy wells, and the locations of Green Man carvings are also included. Sometimes these tales echo history and sometimes they come from a deeper folklore. Sometimes ghost stories are discredited, sometimes they are not. A useful guidebook for tourists and travelers, this book is also an invaluable compendium for serious researchers. Stories are indexed by type and a separate index lists postcodes and Ordinance Survey map references for those who wish to visit the locations for themselves.
