Episode 5 - The Midsummer Tree

Jun 22, 2019, 11:01 PM

This old oak tree standing at the foot of the South Downs in Southern England has a strange tale of skeletons rising up from its roots at midnight on Midsummers Eve. 
I traced the story back to its origins and also learn about the power of stories to affect a place.

There is music in this episode from Crayola Lectern:

The rest of the music is provided kindly by Adrien Rhodes.
