Cave of the Cunning Folk

Nanny's Cave was once the home of a witch - or cunning woman to be precise - known as Meg O' Fox Holes. She lived here on Kinver Edge during the early 1600s where folk would walk up through the surrounding woods to consult her. "Nanny" was a common term used to describe a wisewoman or cunning lady, especially around the Midlands.


The graffiti carved into the sandstone over the centuries has created a surreal atmosphere inside the cave, a chaotic patchwork of symbols and names.


I take a deep dive into the lives of the many witches and cunning folk of the Midlands in my new book The Magic of Mercia, available to purchase at https://www.lulu.com/shop/hugh-williams/the-magic-of-mercia/paperback/product-yv7drdq.html?q=&page=1&pageSize=4
