Somerset's Famous Faerie King And Ancient Standing Stones

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: www.instagram.com/thefaerie_folk/ Facebook: www.facebook.com/thefaeriefolk/ Galway by Kevin MacLeod Link: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/3795-galway License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/   *This episode was recorded and released during the first UK 2020 Coronavirus lockdown.*December 2020 Update*: Travel between United Kingdom locations is currently discouraged due to COVID-19 restrictions.
