An excellent collection, well presented, of tales from this intriguing and ancient county.
Hugh Lupton needs little introduction, well known in this genre, this book will make fascinating reading,
and a great stocking filler for christmas, or as a birthday present

This book is well made and feels good to hold. The tales are told in a lively manner, with good background for students of folklore. Hugh Lupton writes as he narrates live. We need more books like this. Perfect.

By H. A. Weedon TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Mar. 2016
Format: Paperback
Norfolk Folk Tales contains a serious error that should never have been allowed to pass uncorrected. Under the Index of Norfolk Place Names beginning on page 188, the town of Brandon is listed as being in Norfolk. Brandon is in Suffolk and is famous, amongst other things, for the knapping of flints, which have been mined at Grimes Graves just across the border in Norfolk since Palaeolithic times. Flints knapped at Brandon in Suffolk were used in the muskets of the British army over a long period of time and flint knapping continued in Brandon, Suffolk to within living memory. I believe that this ancient skill is still being kept alive there in that part of Suffolk.

This work also gets into a muddle over King Edmund, the last king of the ancient Kingdom of East Anglia, which consisted of the two counties of Suffolk and Norfolk plus a small part of Cambridgeshire east of the Devil's Dyke. Although everyone knows that Edmund was killed by the Danes in the village of Hoxne (pronounced 'Hoxen') in Suffolk, this work seeks to throw doubt on this to try and have him martyred in Norfolk, which he wasn't.. If you go to Hoxne day local people will show you the bridge built on the site of the ancient bridge he was hiding under and from where he was inadvertently betrayed to the Danes by a wedding party. King Edmund's palace was situated at Rendlesham in Suffolk, the seat of the kings of East Anglia for nearly 300 years.

The ancient kings of the East Angles were known as the Wuffas, because they were sesended from King Wuffa. 'Wuffa' comes from the old Anglo-Saxon word for 'wolf', the wolf being the emblem of the Wuffas.

Folk tales as folk tales should be with a personalised touch from an experienced, expert story teller. Could only be bettered by hearing Hugh Lupton telling them live.

Bought as a Christmas present for someone from Norfolk. Went down well. Surprised that I can keep finding stuff from Norfolk.
Luckily not difficult here.
