Illustrated with B&W photographs. From the cover: “This delightful book describes much of England’s more important country lore, using contemporary accounts and adding historical material to show the richness of what inevitably lies behind us often within living memory but not again to be experienced first hand. Old beliefs, superstitions and rituals, their origins tong forgotten, lingered on as part of the collective wisdom of the country community, as they still do here and there, safeguarding family, farm and possessions, reflecting the natural longing for security and prosperity.”
