Last night I had a sunset trip to Mitchell's Fold Stone Circle in #Shropshire , an atmospheric spot which is the subject of much legend.

Folklore says that during a time of famine a benevolent fairy gave the local people a magic cow which provided an endless supply of milk. A condition was that each person could only take a pailful at a time.

However one night a witch milked the cow using a sieve, and the cow became dry. The cow immediately disappeared and all the people died miserably. The witch - called Mitchel - was then turned to stone, and a circle of stones was put up around her to prevent her from escaping.

Mitchell's Fold was built around 3,000 years ago using stones from nearby Stapeley Hill. Today there are 15 stones, but it is believed that at one time there may have been as many as 30.
