‘Spooky Suffolk’ on BBC Radio Suffolk

This afternoon I was interviewed on BBC Radio Suffolk (listen from 3:17:00) as part of what will become a regular segment on ‘Spooky Suffolk’, featuring weird tales and unexplained phenomena from the county. I began the series, naturally, by talking about the Green Children of Woolpit – perhaps Suffolk’s best-known story of the unexplained, which is discussed at length in my book Suffolk Fairylore. There are many interpretations of the story of the Green Children and theories advanced about them, but my own view is that the story should be read in the context of stories about otherworldly visitors who dwell under the earth – in other words, fairies. But this is such a strange story that my guess is no better than anyone else’s, really…

‘Spooky Suffolk’ should be next broadcast at around 12.15 on 22 October. Watch this space!
