Maps of the Lost
A (fictional, maybe) guidebook to the lost knowledge, the thin places and the secret histories of the UK. Be cautious, though. If you follow them, you may become lost yourself. Available on the web, on Facebook, via a bitesize podcast, or a monthly email newsletter.

If you like the folkloric eerie and weird, folk horror, the myths and legends of the UK, and knowing why you should never meet the person who walks in the fog on St Pantalus' Day, you might enjoy Maps of the Lost.

You can read the entries at the website, on the Facebook page, through the 10 minute podcast or the monthly email newsletter.

Dive in and sample some of the stories, or check out the first issue of the newsletter to get a feel for the thing. I hope you enjoy it. And remember: between September and October there is another month, the name of which is lost. Those few who know the secret sometimes pass it on. They write the name in the margins of a second-hand book in a charity shop, or they paint it amidst the graffiti on an end of terrace wall. If you say that name as the last second of September ticks away, you will get to live a month others will never see.

Watch out for its name.

This is neat! Great that you start with the Cerne giant. I used to identify as English, and have traveled a lot of the place, I've seen and experienced some odd, you odd, unexplainable things ... fae etc are never far away.
