There are rumours of many faerie castles in Britain, one such is Castle Howe
situated on the banks of Bassenthwaite Lake in Cumbria. On misty mornings
or sometimes late in the evening, the reflection of it can be seen in the waters
of the lake but the actual castle is never seen.
Two children disturbed this faerie site and roused their anger when they started
digging in the soft earth with toy spades. Their father saw what they were doing
and sent the family dog over to attract the children's attention, but before the
dog could reach them, it stopped dead in its' tracks as though it were paralysed.
