Liskeard in the picturesque county of Cornwall has an interesting history, as does the whole of the county. It had an important “stannary” (tin mine) and became a centre for minting local coinage. The tin mines in their heyday in the 19th century ran like a maze underground, many of them so deep they even went below sea-level.
Today the town holds a weekly livestock market and hosts one of the biggest annual agricultural fairs in the region. Such an interesting place inevitably attracts tourism, those who stop for a few days or travelling on to other destinations West. Let’s hope visitors travelling through would not need to think about making an injury claim in Liskeard, but down those twisty Cornish lanes bound by high hedges, you never quite know what you might meet coming round the corner.
English culture has its own distinctive fairy tale folklore, although these days the great fairy tales of European origin, written by the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen have acquired global fame. Some of the old fairy-folk tales of Cornwall are really quite intriguing.
The older generations of Cornwall are happy to tell you about the “piskies“, who are “little people”. They take care never to be seen by humans but are slimmer and somewhat more agile than a traditional diamond-mining dwarf, and they wear pointy hats. Probably Celtic in origin, they are generally helpful around the house, but can be mischievous, stealing milk or turning it sour, and are associated with smuggling and other nefarious activities. A lucky find in a charity shop might be a second-hand book of these old folk tales.
