Folklore in Weymouth and Portland
The county of Dorset lies along the South West Coast of England and forms part of the ancient kingdom of Wessex.
Often called Thomas Hardy’s Wessex, Dorset is noted for its beauty, and even more so for its variety, almost every kind of coastal scenery that England possesses can be found some where within its compass, while inland the variety is maintained with rich pastures, undulating downs, picture postcard villages, barren heaths and ancient monuments.
Dorset is steeped in history, folklore and legend, much of which is mysterious and dark.
