Sacred journeys : an illustrated guide to pilgrimages around the world by Jennifer Westwood( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 326 libraries worldwide
"Sacred journeys are as old as human cultures. They evolved from the ritual paths of tribal societies; from the sacred ways of classical Greece, Egypt, and the East; and from the flowering in the Middle Ages of the great religious pilgrimages that still flourish. Today, the numbers of people of all faiths and cultures engaged in pilgrimages are swelling. Each year, millions around the world leave behind the routine of daily life and seek the profound and sacred through journeys to places of incredible power, mystery, and beauty." "Pilgrimages share a common pattern. Each is a spiritual as well as a physical progress with a beginning, midway stage, climax, and homecoming. Part I of Sacred Journeys leads the reader through these stages in twelve sections with themes such as Longing, Getting Ready, Adventures and Difficulties, Arrival, and Coming Home. Illuminating these stages are twenty-five personal narratives of pilgrimages to such sites as Shikoku in Japan, Chaco Canyon in the United States, Croagh Patrick in Ireland, Canterbury in England, and Arunachala in India. Part II is a concise, practical guide to more than forty of the essential routes and sites around the world. Organized into three groups according to the type of destination - Journeys to Sacred Landscapes, to Sacred Temples, and to Sacred Shrines - each summary provides crucial information on recommended itineraries, appropriate times of year, key roadside features, the environment, necessary clothing, talismans, equipment and other accessories, and much more."--Jacket

"England's history echoes with stories of unquiet spirits and hauntings, of headless highwaymen and grey ladies, of indelible bloodstains and premonitions of death. Here, county by county and place by place, Jennifer Westwood and Jacqueline Simpson gather together all the most interesting supernatural tales from The Lore of the Land. From a ghostly army marching across Cumbria and landlords' appeals against rates (because no one will rent their haunted houses), to Francis Drake's drum summoning him when England is in danger, these fascinating and unforgettable stories are part of our legendary past - and present."--Jacket

The fabled coast : legends and traditions from the seas and shores of Britain and Ireland by Sophia Kingshill( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 86 libraries worldwide
"Anyone with a love of the British coast will know that the shores of these islands are steeped in intriguing tales and ancient traditions. From stories of pirates and smugglers to accounts of ghost ships and sea serpents, via wreckers' sayings, fishermen's prayers and sailors' rituals, no matter where you look you'll find an astonishingly rich variety of local legends, customs and superstitions. In The Fabled Coast, renowned folklorists Jennifer Westwood and Sophia Kingshill gather together many of the most enthralling yarns from Great Britain and Ireland, tracing their origins and examining what basis -- if any -- they have in fact. Does the lost land of Lyonesse, site of King Arthur's final battle, really exist? Why did Scottish Highlanders believe that seals were enchanted royalty? Did the mermaid market on the Channel Islands ever happen? Along the way, they breathe life into ancient stories such as the tale of 'Jack the Painter', whose chains may be heard rattling in Portsmouth Harbour on a windy night, and the Fata Morgana, through which you can see a ghostly city off the coast of Kent. The result is a unique picture of our coastal heritage and the stories that are such an integral part of our Island history."

Country lore and legends by Jennifer Westwood( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
From stone-throwing Cornish giants to a haunted Northumberland mine, from the ghostly Mistletoe Bride of Oxfordshire to the 'bloody hand' in a Kent church, here are the myths, legends and supernatural stories that have been passed down through the generations all over England. Containing tales of fairies, hobgoblins, spectral huntsmen, black dogs, bogey beasts, screaming skulls and clanging bells, as well as real and mythical figures such as King Arthur, Robin Hood, St George, Boadicea and Dick Turpin, this is a magical journey through England's legendary past. Generations of inhabitants have helped shape the English countryside - but it has profoundly shaped us too. It has provoked a huge variety of responses from artists, writers, musicians and people who live and work on the land - as well as those who are travelling through it. English Journeys celebrates this long tradition with a series of twenty books on all aspects of the countryside, from stargazey pie and country churches, to man's relationship with nature and songs celebrating the patterns of the countryside (as well as ghosts and love-struck soldiers)
