This would be a great little book except for the fact that the county in which I live (Norfolk) has zero entries. I was really looking forward to finding out more about sites where I live - considering my area has many legends of Norfolk fairies or "Hikey Sprites", there is an ancient fairy wood nearby and I've seen strange fairy lights in a field nearby. Norfolk is one of the most haunted and perculiar counties with a rich heritage of legends and myth - surely the author could have included just one story?

A great reference for finding the magical places in our lovely country. All Fairies should have one. Pass the message on!

I enjoyed this book but i found Elizabeth Andrews 'Faeries and Folklore of the British Isles' to be a much more entertaining read. Her artwork is truly beautiful and the text is well written.
I have collected many of Janet Bord's other books and have found them to be interesting and have really enjoyed reading them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finding those mystical fairies 16 Aug. 2011
By S. Cranow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Planning a trip to the British Isles? Maybe you want to check out some of the sights that are associated with fairies. That's right these places are places where fairies have been seen. The is book is written like a Fodor's or Lonely Planet travel guide to fairy sights in Britain.

The book is divided into sections. Regions of England, Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man are divided up into regions. Each section gives you entry style descriptions of fairy sights in the area. At the beginning of each section is a map of the area and underneath the map is a number and the fairy sight. You can locate it on the map. I still think you will need a GPS though. After each entry is a story associated with the sight which helped make it famous. Some of the areas are in out of the way places and look pretty barren. Other area are located on Private property. The rest are easily located.

Many of the stories have common motifs. Some stories involve someone getting caught in a fairy ring and dancing in that ring for at least a year and maybe more. They are finally pulled out by some dedicated friends. Bent pins are thrown into wells as a sacrifice. Stories of changelings abound along with fairy lovers who return to fairy land after being with their husbands for a while.

The book is inspiring and makes for a quick read. If you are interested in fairies or interested in traveling to the British Isles I strong recommend reading this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Out There! 22 May 2006
By Samantha de Revolu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is simply a MUST for anybody interested in fairies. It wonderfully detailed, with old folklore and real acounts from all over England, Wales, and Scotland, and is filled with pictures and drawings of the exact place where the sighting happened. It even gives precise directions on how to get there.

The only thing that I believe that should have added, was sightings from Ireland, as Ireland is well known for their fairy sighting and lore.
