Event Details

Would you like to tell me a story?

‘Within the Boggart Wood’, is the brainchild of archaeologist Tony Liddell and seeks to explore the North of England and the Scottish Borders’ rich and varied folklore, ghostlore, history and archaeology – gathering stories for Tony’s Northern Counties Paranormal Podcasts.

Part of the podcast is to recount real life encounters with the weird and wonderful. ‘Within the Boggart Wood’ will be at the Land of Oak & Iron Heritage Centre to collect your stories, should you choose to share them!

Tony will come armed with recording equipment and a notebook. If you’d prefer your story to be read out by Tony on the podcast, or if you’d like your tale to be recorded between you and a microphone, either way is fine.

“Notwithstanding the manifest growth of popular enlightenment, there is still a vast amount of superstition in the North-Country. Almost every neighbourhood has its wise woman, to whom credulous fools resort to have their fortunes told, or for the recovery of lost goods, or to find out who are their enemies, and learn how to circumvent and punish them. The fairy people, it is true, now only linger in childish tradition; but ghosts are still not uncommon…” The Monthly Chronicle of North-Country Lore and Legend, 1891

The collected tales will also hopefully form the basis of a further event later in the year at the Heritage Centre.

No booking required, just drop by to say hello to Tony and chat about folklore, ghostlore and the history of the area.
