There are many forts around here. ...

There are many forts around here. There is one very nice one in it. There is a lot of trees growing around it. It is very big and there is a hole in the middle of it.
Long ago the fairies used to be living in those forts. The people who own those fields where the forts are situated never plough them because they would be afraid on account of the fairies living in them, There was often light seen around them. One night a man was crossing the fields and it was late. He saw a light at one of these forts. He got very frightened and he never went across by night after that.
