Legends of Great Britain

The history of nation is similar to the mosaic, created by wonderful combination of facts and myths. And the United Kingdom is not exception 
Since ancient times, Great Britain and Ireland have been amongst the most significant countries in the world for myths and magic. 
Legend meets the present in Great Britain... on the English flag, the Red Cross of St George, the legendary knight who slew the fire breathing dragon of a mystical past, and the proud dragon of the Welsh national flag.

The Glastonbury Thorn
Glastonbury, Somerset 
Great age is claimed for the Glastonbury thorn. When Joseph of Arimathea landed from his vessel, he and his company threw themselves down on a tall hill to rest. Joseph thrust his staff of dry hawthorn wood into the ground beside him. Miraculously it straight-way took root, an omen of the fruitfulness of his mission. The tree, always blooming on Christmas night, waxed great as the centuries passed, and its vitality was such that, when its twin stems were uprooted during the Civil War, even castaway fragments flourished where they fell.

St. Patrick & the Snakes
Carlisle, Cumberland 
Patrick, when a boy, was seized by pirates from his home near Carlisle and sold into bondage to an Irish chieftain. He escaped, and at length reached the Continent, where eventually he was ordained a bishop. Later he returned to the land of his former captivity, and by his preaching converted the Irish to Christianity. Legend says at that time the country was oppressed by great serpents and a host of loathsome, poisonous reptiles. Endowed with miraculous power, St. Patrick drove every snake from the land into that unfathomed pool, amid the Kerry Hills, from whence only the Last Trumpet may release them.

The Treasure of Callow Pit
Southwood, Norfolk


Many years ago, when Callow Pit was filled with water, people said that a chest of gold lay hidden in its depths. One night two daring men bridged the pit by ladders and, having found the chest, drew it up by a hook passed through the ring in its lid. In the excitement of their success, one of them cried: "Not even Old Nick can get it from us now!" Immediately the pit filled with a choking, sulphurous mist, and from the water sprang a black hand and arm. It grasped the chest and, despite their struggles, the men were forced to relinquish the treasure, which fell back into the depths, never to be seen again.
