Cheshire is a landscape steeped in myth and mystery.
Evidence that our earliest ancestors hunted, farmed, fought, lived and died across Cheshire can be found all over the landscape. But to find it, you need to know where to look.
There are hidden caves and camps, standing stones, hillforts, burial mounds, old churches and castles at every turn. There are Cheshire ghosts and hauntings, stories of Cheshire murders and massacres, and enough strange tales and fanciful folklore to make your spine tingle.
