At one of the MADE OF STEEL events this week Marie McNally gave me an article on the Consett Giants taken from ‘Folk Tales of the North Country’ which is available from Amazon. The link is below.
You will also find a reference to the Giants on this site under ‘Legend’ which is an abridged version of the ‘Giants’ tale taken from the Consett Methodist site.
Incidentally the book was published in 1944 and costs £6.32
This is what Amazon say about the book.
This is a great little book of some 150 pages which has 44 short but very interesting folk tales from the Northumberland and Durham areas of Great Britain. The magic tales of dragons, witches, fairies, ghosts and goblins add an extra dimension to the places named in the book.
Thank you Marie: much appreciated.
