Forts
There are many old Forts around this district.
In Mr Murray's field there is one. It is shaped like a ring fenced with trees, briers and furze. In the centre there are many rings, those rings are supposed to be the homes of fairies.
In the winter when the farmers are cutting the hedges and ditches around their farms, they never interfere with these forts.
