About This Book

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.
