Today we're traveling to Somerset to discover more magical creatures and traditional folktales. Our virtual adventure first takes us up to the top of Glastonbury Tor to meet the Faerie King Gwynn Ap Nudd and learn all about his encounter with the abbot, St. Collen. And then we journey over to the village of Stanton Drew, famous for its many ancient standing stone circles. Are they the neolithic monuments of a forgotten time, or is there a more fantastical backstory to their origin?

There’s more myths and magic waiting for you over on social media too: Twitter: twitter.com/thefaerie_folk Instagram:
