The Hurl Stone and Hurlestone Tower, Lilburn

  • Description

    [The Hurl Stone is said to be a favourite haunt of the fairies. According to an article by George Tate (1863), as explorers were passing along a passage and under the Hurl Stone, they heard fairy harp music and the pattering of tiny feet dancing, and shrill sweet voices chanting: "Wind about and turn again, And thrice around the Hurl Stane." "Round about and wind again, And thrice around the Hurl Stane."] Photo by Russel Wills, 2013, and licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons Licence.
