Norfolk Myths & Legends

For Norfolk or Suffolk Pictures - Click the Pictorial Guide Link.Norfolk retains an irresistible sense of mystery, and it has more than its fair share of ghostly apparitions, ghost stories and strange tales. A land of the elements, with its wide skies, autumnal fierce winds and dramatic tides

At dusk, when the raucous cries of the gulls are eventually silenced, and the landscape becomes dotted with the skeletal frames of windmills, and churches etched against the ever-darkening sky take on an eerie countenance. What mysteries do these lonely marshes, cliff tops and ancestral homes now hold?

 Myths and Legends are an important part of our heritage, and give an insight into the traditions of our ancestors, as well as a chronicled record of strange sightings throughout the ages as well as the present day.

Here are just a few spooky stories, that we have been able to ferret out. We will continue our search to bring, to you, the viewer and reader other interesting snippets and facts, as they are uncovered, during daylight hours!
