In the 1960’s, the old ranger, Ronnie Bennett, who patrolled these woods near Cottingley (home of the famous ‘Cottingley Fairies‘ ) reported that he saw little people here: “not one, but three,” as he said. “not fairies with wings, but more gnome-like”.
In the 1980’s a certain lady, Anne Freeman, was walking through these woods when she heard some ‘chattering’ and allegedly saw two tiny figures barely one-foot tall wearing red outfits and green hats in “medieval peasant dress”.
Everyone knows the fairy folk live in woods, and these ancient woods also have another surprise – ‘The Fairy Stone’ – a mysterious prehistoric rock carving thought to be several thousand years old.
Sitting at home surrounded by your technology it is silly to believe in fairies. But go to these ancient woods on a midsummer eve and sit on the ‘Fairy Stone’ and wait – even if you don’t see them, I guarantee you’ll think twice about not believing.
