There are some very old places in England and I would like to show you some of my favourites, mainly from the south west and tell you a few of the legends that go with them.
It has been pointed out to me that England didn't exist until about the 9th century and I hadn't thought of it like that. This land of mine has been here 'forever' but known by various names, so for ease I call it England.
There's a thin line between history and myth, also between interesting and boring; in this site although sometimes history obviously comes into it I hope boredom never does.
Some of the places I have included simply because they are so old, some because I have been there and they are meaningful to me.
When I started out on this I never guessed that I would get so involved in it, nor did I visualise the site getting so big. There is so much history in England that a little deserves to be immortalised, even if it's only by me!
Please take the tour with me and be prepared to jump from here to there at the click of a button.
I have decided to treat this site like a book but instead of having to turn to page '?' just press the link and you will be taken there. Clever stuff. So, just to recap, different coloured text on a page means there's another reference to that subject elsewhere in the site.
I hope it works!
Coming as I do from the West Country I thought I would add my genealogy research here

The difference between a myth and a legend is that a legend is usually based on facts while a myth is an unproven story. For this reason myths make story-telling more fun.
