The Stiperstones



It is, I understand, still believed in the neighbourhood that, every year on the longest night, all the ghosts (including, I suppose, spiritual beings of all kinds, and perhaps witches) of Shropshire "and the counties beyond," assemble round the highest of the Stiperstones to choose their king.
From 'Collectanea Archaeologica' - Beriah Botfield's 1860 address called 'Shropshire, its History and Antiquities'.
