About This Book

This collection, inspired by the folklore of the Royal County, contains a plethora of tales robustly retold for a contemporary audience. The exploits of well-known figures such as Herne the Hunter and Dick Turpin feature alongside many of the county's lesser-known legends. From a cruel ordeal by fire and historical trials by combat, to the lore of dragons and witches, Berkshire Folk Tales is a heady mix of bloodythirsty, funny, passionate and moving stories. But this is not only a book of folk tales. It is also a gazetteer to guide you, allowing you to make the same journey as the antiquaries and discover this land and its stories for yourself.
