S4E41 – Somerset Fairy Tales

Somerset Fairy Tales

James takes Alasdair on a tour of the ‘summer lands’ – Somerset – and the wee folk that dwell there. They live inside stones, beneath mounds and under at least one castle. (It’s not there anymore, don’t look for it.)

We are talking fairies, faeries and indeed, the fae. You’ve got to be careful with these temperamental critters. They’ll just as soon give you a golden nugget as turn into a cloud of bees and have your eyes out.

We probably shouldn’t have called them ‘critters’. Sorry, lads. No harm done, eh?


The Loremen are Alasdair Beckett-King & James Shakeshaft.
