The Black Down Hills
The Black Downs have a long tradition as a haunt of the fairies, and stories tell of many sightings as recently as a few hundred years ago, when many country folk believed we shared this land with supernatural denizens.
One story tells how a local schoolmaster came across a group of fairies dancing in a ring when he was crossing the downs at sundown. The fairies were also though to hold a fair upon the hills.
