The United Kingdom is renowned as the most haunted country on Earth. The British Isles are also rich in folklore regarding fairies, witches, giants, dragons and all manner of strange superstitions and customs.
But supernatural activity is as prevalent today in Britain as it has always been. Ghosts haunt our homes and highways, weird animals prowl our moors and fields, fairies are still to be glimpsed.
Uncanny UK is an online magazine devoted to the supernatural in Britain. Every week at least one new article will be uploaded, on British ghosts, fairies, witchcraft or alien animals. Readers are invited to register in order to access a monthly ‘More Uncanny’ series on even more esoteric subjects, such as prophetic dreams and omens, and stories that simply can’t be categorised. The Registration button is to be found right at the top of this page.
We are always interested in receiving true accounts of supernatural activity in Britain. Have you seen a ghost or a fairy, or experienced a poltergeist? If you have a personal account or a family story to share, please tell us about it! Send it to: email@example.com
The editor of Uncanny UK is Richard Holland. Richard has spent all his adult life in North Wales and is an expert on Welsh folklore. His books include ‘Haunted Wales’ and ‘Wales of the Unexpected’. He has written regular columns on ghosts and folklore for regional newspapers and has broadcast and lectured widely on these subjects, with appearances on BBC1′s ‘Carol Vorderman’s Mysteries’, HTV’s ‘Night Owls’ and a regular spot on Adam Walton’s show on BBC Radio Wales. He revamped ‘Paranormal’ magazine (www.paranormalmagazine.co.uk) for Jazz Publishing when it was acquired by them and continued as its editor for 30 issues until poor advertising revenue and the downturn in the economy forced its closure.
