The Countryman is one of the oldest, most respected countryside magazines in the world. It appears every month and is read by thousands of people throughout Britain and overseas, who share its concerns for the countryside, the people who live and work in it, its wildlife, and its customs, traditions and folklore. The Countryman includes features on the people, places and history that make the British countryside so special. In recent issues it has included features on topics as diverse as: haunted pubs; Hallowmass recipes; the Green Man; Cornwall’s “seductive mermaid”; Allendale Fire Festival; the custom of making corn maidens or kern babies at harvest time; traditional country shows; the folklore of the little owl; country customs; endangered heritage crafts; rural dialects; the facts and fictions surrounding crop circles; and Britain’s rich and fascinating history of fairies, piskies, elves, gnomes and goblins.
This month, we're delighted that the wonderful folks over at The Countryman magazine have kindly featured #FolkloreThursday in their January edition!
