Banbury-based environmental sculptor David Gosling and his son Adam have just completed a new temporary sculpture at the Rollright Stones of Three Fairies Dancing, reflecting one of the many folklore legends associated with the Stones. The sculpture is inspired by William Blake’s painting Oberon, Titania and Puck with Fairies Dancing from A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Shakespeare may well have known the Stones as they are close to the old road from Stratford to London. Some of the numerous folklore legends date back to his day or earlier. It is said that the Fairies come out to dance round the Stones at night. They would emerge from a hole in the rock at the bottom of a former quarry by the King Stone.

(A few years ago witches were also spotted there)
