Weird Walk is a small magazine written by three semi-anonymous writers based in England which celebrates the ancient ritual year in the UK. This is their first book, which brings together many of their best writing to form a year-round portrait of the ancient places of Great Britain. It’s a bright yellow and well-designed hardback, full of photographs and drawings and descriptions of places like Avebury, Stonehenge and Castlerigg and ancient celebrations at Ottery St Mary, Abbots Bromley and Chepstow. It’s a respectful celebration of much that is magical about this island and an encouragement that we too should walk around these places and try and re-energise and reactivate the ancient powers dormant here. There is more to life than smartphones, TikTok and online gambling, as we all know.
