About the event

Come hunt for the Gurt Worm, the Quantocks own Dragon of the hills, to meet the fairy Lords and Ladies of Dowsborough hill fort, the Black Dog of Bicknoller, the witch from Crowcombe…. The Quantock hills are full of tales about magical and wonderful characters and we want you to discover them!

This event will combine the wonderful storytelling of Clare Viner, with chances to explore your own creativity and learn about the landscape from Quantock Hills AONB rangers, all whilst having a leisurely walk through beautiful countryside.

Clare Viner has been researching and telling these stories for many years. She brings a drum, laughter and magic, inviting you to dream into the landscape and find your own playfulness there.

Meet 10.30am Dead Women’s Ditch (not as sinister as it sounds!) – follow the road up on to the hills from either Nether Stowey or Crowcombe. It is clearly marked as a stopping place and has parking. Bring a picnic lunch!

This event is part of an exciting programme of activities connected to Halsway Manor's Heritage Lottery Fund project “Future Halsway”, there will be a number of events open to the public, free of charge. These will include heritage open days, a folklore walk for families, a seasonal folklore supper, a folk arts taster day and many more.
