Weird Walk: Wanderings and Wonderings Through the British Ritual Year.

An epic folkloric guide to rambling, re-enchanting the landscape, and reconnecting with nature.

288 pages of brand new material (not in the zine!), plus a foreword by Stewart Lee.

In this book is a radical idea. By walking the ancient landscape of Britain, engaging with the traces of the deep past and following the wheel of the year as it turns, we can find a pathway that reconnects us to our shared folklore, to the seasons and to nature, setting a course towards optimism, re-enchantment and brighter futures.

SPRING Watch the equinox sunrise light up the floating capstone of Pentre Ifan and connect with the Cailleach at the shrine of Tigh nam Bodach in the remote Highlands

SUMMER Feel the resonance of ancient raves and rituals in the stone circles of southwest England’s Stanton Drew, Avebury and the Hurlers, and follow the Morris sides around the pubs of Thaxted

AUTUMN Bring in the harvest with the old gods at Coldrum Long Barrow, and brave the ghosts on misty Blakeney Point

WINTER Make merry at the Chepstow wassail, and listen out for the sunken church bells of the lost medieval city of Dunwich
