Local Sites

These pages detail my research into the local landscape and capture places that I feel in one way or another are important to my Druidry.

I would not consider all of these “sacred sites”. Some of them are simply places nearby that have come to be included for a variety of reasons. Yet what makes a sacred site? They can take a number of obvious forms. They can be ancient shrines, monuments, earthworks, pools, waterfalls, mountain tops or rivers to name but a few. They can also be more modern magical places, such as a clearing in the forest, a modern monument or a patch of reclaimed industrial land. What marks them out then is the associations we humans place on these locations. The “feel” of the place, or something specific that happens or is happening there.

Many of these places are also abundant sources of wild foods. There can be no deeper relationship with the local land than eating directly from it.
