Local Stories & Folklore

This section of the website is an attempt to collect and archive local legends, stories, folklore and ‘ripping’ yarns before they are lost forever. At one time or another we have all sat transfixed, had the hairs on our neck stand up, or even howled with laughter as our elders recounted tales of the past. This is our chance to get them down in writing and preserve them forever.

The stories can be anything! Ghosts, funny stories, local characters and heroes. If you have interesting tales to tellĀ about this parish why not submit them to us for inclusion here. Contact us to get your story listed.
