In ancient times the island of Britain was ruled by wild magic and elemental spirits of nature. Arthur and his knights roamed the land, faery magic haunted the twilight and the wild hunt could be heard crashing through the skies at night. This was the magical island of Albion, a legendary isle at the edge of the known World, the sacred island of Merlin the wizard.
There were once many places in Britain where the ancient magic of this isle could still be felt. But now, due to the ravages of time and the relentless onslaught of civilization, only a handful of these places still survive. Having escaped centuries of change these sacred places have become all but forgotten, little pockets of wild magic in a modern landscape.
In these magical places the ancient magic can still sometimes be felt and experienced if one is only willing to pause there for a while and let the clutter of the modern world recede from our minds to be replaced by the stillness of nature and the echoes of our ancient past.
In this book we shall explore these magical locations and shed some light upon these enchanted corners of our land that have lain shrouded in darkness and mystery for so long...
