About this product
- DescriptionFrom Abbotts Ann and the Maiden's Garlands to the Tichborne Dole and St Swithun's forty days of rain, Folklore of Hampshire looks at the county as never before. Hampshire is proud host to traditions, customs and legends that may seem strange to the people of the twenty-first century but were very real to the Hampshire folk of yesteryear. While some of these customs have died out others are still with us, continuing a rich heritage. This book reveals some of the county's saints, witches, superstitions, music, ghosts and legends, and talks to the 'Hampshire Hogs' who ensure that folklore from the past retains a place in modern society. Penny Legg is a writer and photographer, resident in Southampton. A member of the Society of Women Writers and Journalists, the National Union of Journalists and the Bitterne Historical Society, she edits The Woman Writer magazine and tutors n-fiction for The Writers Bureau.
