Folklore and mystery?

"Local author and researcher seeks tales of folklore and mystery across North Cornwall and Bodmin Moor"

Folklore researcher Alex Langstone, who lives at Tredethy, is asking local people to share their ghost stories, folk tales and local custom and lore. Alex is attempting to collect old tales from the region so as to preserve them for future generations. The Cornish revivalists and antiquarians of the 19th century collected many old tales, superstitions, legends and folklore from mid and west Cornwall, but Bodmin Moor and North East Cornwall was largely ignored. Any correspondence will be treated in the strictest confidence.

You can contact Alex by email:
