Grime's Graves (Ancient Mine / Quarry) — Fieldnotes

Went to Grimes Graves on route from North Norfolk to London but it was closed for lunch. Those pesky miners and their rights.

Couldn't wait to go down but will go again.

Above ground though, what a vibration.

Devils holes abound in the ground in a Thetford Forest clearance.

The man in the shop said they were Grim's holes.

Grim being olde name for Odin apparently.

But to spoil the thrill of the olde its just land slippage but buy a post card. I didn't.

The Long Man of Wilmington (Hill Figure) — Fieldnotes

Went to Eastbourne during the first weekend of August for the pagan Lammas festival. Cisited the Long Man the day after. It looked well impressive from the road especially as behind the wall we espied druid rites happening. Some of us went. Some of us went to the pub.

Also checked out the churchyard. Noticed the tree had been dressed in many coloured ribbons.

Our fieldtrip was well worthwhile but mostly for the fun of being witih the folk we were with from Ken Rees' Mythology, Folklore, and Witchcraft class which happens in Notting Hill. If you want to check out this class you can phone Ken on 020 8671 6372. Tell him Rich told ya.
