This episode is the first of two looking at some legends from the nearly 2000 year old city of Manchester. We have two stories - In the first there’ll be some pleasing names, that folklore necessary liminality and ill-advised ways to win a woman...
Walter Map’s charming little tale of a Princess, ambition, obsession, one of the most taboo acts known to humanity, an unlikely weapon from an unlikely source and, of course, shoes.
Warning: this is a very Not Safe For Work story
A lighter tale this episode in the form of The Dragon of Wantley. There is everything you'd expect from a good dragon slaying story: a Knight, a maiden, and a digestive complaint.
