Typepad, the platform that hosts Myth & Moor, has had massive problems over the last few weeks as they've moved from one data centre to another. While many issues have been resolved, other problems remain and this blog isn't functioning 100% normally yet. You may find pages hard to load, art still missing on a number of pages, and I'm still having difficulties in publishing new posts like this one. The engineers at Typepad say they are working on it, and I hope it will all settle down soon. In the meantime, I'm sorry that so many posts in the archives are not loading all of their imagery. Please bear with us.
Thank you also for your patience with Myth & Moor has been on hiatus. As many of you know, it's been a very rough summer and autumn for us. I'll be back just as soon as I can be.
Pictures above: Celebrating May Day here in Chagford last spring, with storyteller & folklorist Lisa Schneidau (whose books I hope you all know), our village Jack-in-Green (Lisa's husband, naturalist Tony Whitehead), our 'Obby 'Oss (Howard) and the Oss Minder (me). Now we are heading into the dark of the year, also rich with folklore and magic.
