The Way We Were (Sep, 2017) “Chained Oak”- The Fact Behind The Fiction

I was honored to be asked to write an article on one of my favourite topics for The Sentinel’s “Legends” special supplement.

My interest in folklore spans many years, and I often explore it in my work. The Chained Oak effectively launched my career, inspiring my first major story and my first film project.

In the article I explore the original legend, share findings from my research, and propose alternate theories as to the origins of the Chained Oak.

My thanks to Richard Ault and the team.

You can pick up a copy of The Way We Were, at any news retailer in Staffordshire.
